Grotius: Father of the Law of Nations Hugo Grotius (1583-1645) was a Dutch Christian who became famous for his writings on how nations should relate to one another. There is a quote attributed to him that spells out how self-government works better than any other explanation I have ever read. Now, I haven’t been able to document when or where Grotius said this; that’s why I stated only that it is attributed to him. However, as I tell my students,… Read more »
In an age when we look to Washington, DC, for everything we need, we have forgotten one basic Biblical principle that was part of the foundation of this country. It is a principle simply called self-government. It’s not hard to explain. God has created each of us with the ability to make decisions. That is part of His image that He placed within us. Government, by definition, is “control and direction.” Whenever anything is governed, that means it is controlled… Read more »
Obama in Kenya with Odinga Here’s another story for the mainstream media to ignore (which it is doing admirably, I might add). The man seated in this picture is Raila Odinga, current prime minister of Kenya, the second highest position in the government. How did he get there? First, by allying himself with the radical Muslims who wish to impose a fundamentalist Muslim society on the order of Iran. Second, by intimidating and killing his opposition. What role did Barack… Read more »
A continual source of fascination for me is the “undecided voter.” I must admit that I am never undecided. Why? I have a certain set of principles that I believe are Biblically based. Those principles make it clear what type of government will be right and beneficial, and what type will be wrong and destructive. I don’t have to agonize over how I should vote. There is always this great “undecided middle” in elections, and they hold the key to… Read more »
The devotion to Obama seems to have few boundaries. Perhaps you have seen some of the videos making the rounds on YouTube: children singing his praises; teens marching and spouting off on how Obama has given them new hope and has inspired them to succeed in life. Some would say, “What’s wrong with that? Isn’t that a positive thing?” What’s wrong can be summarized in one word: idolatry. Many have mentioned the cult that has arisen around this presumed political… Read more »
This ACORN story is taking off. You can tell by what political cartoonists are focusing on now. I’ll just let these speak for themselves. And I particularly love this commentary on who we may find in an Obama cabinet.
The revelations continue. Yet how many voters are aware of what is happening? Is the mainstream media telling them about the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN)? This very left-leaning group supposedly does “good” things, like get people to register to vote. Its voter-registration drives have led to prosecutions and convictions for fraud. Currently, 15 states are investigating this organization for voter fraud. The goal is to obtain as many votes for Obama as possible, whether they are… Read more »
