What I Read Online – 09/05/2013 (p.m.)

    • The threat to religious liberty in the United States of America is as great as it has been in our nation’s history
    • Statism is an anti-Biblical, God-denying philosophy which believes that the State is the ultimate provider and arbitrator of freedom.
    • Conservatism will make an enormous mistake if we give up on the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage. The more libertarian positions being pressed by the media and by many in the intelligentsia are simply wrongheaded. They will not lead to success for a conservative movement. Truth will always prevail. The truth of the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage — one man and one woman united in a covenant — not only has the precedent of 5000 years of recorded civilization, but is the very foundation on which our nation and any nation rests. Diminish the sanctity of life and disregard the sanctity of marriage, and the sanctity of a God-governed sexuality among humans, and that nation will in effect turn its own artillery against itself and bombard itself with destruction.
    • Christians (and all other conservatives) should remember that genuine faith is more than going to church and quoting Scripture. Jesus said if you love me you will keep my commands.
    • I would rather have a non-believer that advocates the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage, for instance, than a leader who calls himself a Christian and works against the very foundations of life and marriage
    • The Bible teaches a basic economic theory which is derived from and rests on both the freedom that comes from God as well as the very image of God in man. Socialism, Western European social democracy, and other economic theories and practices which deny liberty and advocate Statism run contrary to the basic tenets of all faiths in the Western civilization tradition.

       

       

      Biblical economics do work. Anything else dehumanizes people and hurts them
