Cain and Able at the Capitol? (February 22, 2017)


Last week the chaos we’ve seen in other states descended on Tennessee’s Capitol. Yelling by LGBT activists shut down a press conference by legislators trying to discuss their legislation regarding bathroom privacy. State troopers just stood and watched.

Legislative leaders act paralyzed and rightfully so. Since we threw God out of civil government, there is no legitimate basis for anyone in government to demand that demonstrators be peaceable. On what basis can anyone say to someone else, “You can’t do that. Stop!” without the other saying, “Says who?”

Yale law professor Arthur Leff once said that without God as a ground for authority our “ruling model. . . appears to be … Cain and Abel. . . God help us.”

He was right. Cain is showing up everywhere, even at our state Capitol. God help us, indeed.

Raging and the Foolish Liberal (February 9, 2017)


Last week’s riot at Cal-Berkeley over a conservative speaker on campus was just another in a seemingly endless string of boisterous and even riotous protests by the Left in recent weeks. Their actions bring to mind Solomon’s observation in Proverbs 27, “When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, the foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest.”

The fool is reduced to rage or ridicule and creating unrest because, biblically speaking, fools lack wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, a deficit trifecta when it comes to dealing with a wise man who, biblically speaking, has what the fool lacks. It’s an unfair “competition” when it comes to the competition for ideas.

So don’t be disheartened when liberals rage and resort to ridicule; it’s a sign that they really have nothing to say.

Redefining Mom and Dad (January 25, 2017)

A political firestorm has arisen in Tennessee over a bill that simply says that the words “mother,” “father,” “husband,” “wife” as used in Tennessee’s statutes shall be given their normal, historical meaning, which, of course, means those words are tied to a person’s sex. A man, for example, will never be a mother.

The objection comes from those who got the courts to redefine marriage. They now want the courts to redefine the rest of family law. One specific change is that they no longer want being a parent tied to a biological reality, because same-sex couples cannot both be parents if being a parent is tied to biology. Procreation still requires two sexes.

This bill would keep the courts from redefining what it means to be a mother and father, and that’s why there’s so much controversy.

The Intrinsic Value of Life (January 18, 2017)

We recently marked on our calendars a day to honor the life of Martin Luther King Jr. And this Sunday, many of us will mark another, seemingly unrelated, event—the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the infamous court decision on abortion.

Two different events, but a common issue, the dignity of man made in God’s image.

In one event, our Supreme Court reduced the value of human life to nothing. In the other, we affirm that people are entitled to civil liberties based not on the color of their skin but on their very humanness.

As we consider these two very different events in the life of America, let us renew our commitment to defend the intrinsic value of human life, because all of us, born and unborn and regardless of race, are made in the image of God.
