Speaking Out Like John Galt

One of the best lines in literature is “This is John Galt Speaking.”

The moment comes at the climax of Atlas Shrugged. Read it.

What follows is my own John Galt moment. If I had a stage, this is what I would say. As John Galt did, I would tell you who I am and what I stand for.

Just as with Galt, the ultimate point is not to know who I am. It’s to find out who you are.

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.19

According to Scripture, what is justice? Or what is judgment? (They are often interchangeable.)

Judgment always involves stopping and punishing a wrong-doer. That is the common feature when Scripture speaks of it. If no one stole from another or harmed another, there would be no need for society to provide judgment or justice. The need arises because men initiate force. Someone must judge between conflicting parties to prevent a feud.

When the mayor of a large American city so violates religious liberty, all moral men must speak out. They must speak in the broadest realm possible to them.

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.3

It’s a tall claim to say that the Bible supports laissez faire capitalism. Important (even conservative) Christian voices would reject the idea. But it’s the claim I’m making. Over the next several posts I’ll support it.
