What can anyone do? Our leading politicians do not share our values. In general, they do not defend our individual rights.
Mainstream media cannot help. It has sold itself to the leftist cause. Journalistic standards continue to erode. Marxism motivates much of today’s “reporting.”
Even many conservative commentators leave me unimpressed. Though they may be conservative, I’m not convinced that they know how to think in principle.
This past week I interviewed Joseph Knowles. Joseph studied at Regent University School of Law. He is 32 and lives in Virginia. He and I found common ground in our understanding of Christianity and government.
In this series we’ve looked at “social justice”—what it is, why it’s wrong, and why it matters.
In view of what I’ve said, we are in a better place to understand Scripture on concepts such as oppression, judgment/justice, and government.
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.
