“Religious Liberty” — A Different Take

Al Mohler recently published an article at the Southern Blog called “The moral revolution threatens religious liberty.

Mohler is a noted evangelical leader and the president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He considers “religious liberty” important. His article comes only a week after a previous one at his blog, entitled “Religious Liberty vs. Erotic Liberty—Religious Liberty Is Losing.”

Mohler’s explanation of “religious liberty” bears close study.

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.20

In this final article of the series I want to address a question I brought up near the beginning: Why am I, a worship leader, so concerned about this issue?

Obama let our family down.

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.5

How does a government reduce force in human life? There are two main ways: a legal system (the legislature and the law courts), and a defense system (the police and the military).

A proper government has only these two functions: to define what constitutes the initiation of force, and to stop those who initiate it, be they criminals or invaders.
