Secession is the last non-violent option on the table.

Great Britain seems to have gotten that part right, and that is to its credit. Perhaps a day is coming, and sooner than we think, when we may have to draw a lesson from Scotland.

7. You’ve been in many dialogues with nonChristians. What is the most challenging question you’ve had to answer? Intellectually, why God should have had the Israelites kill even the infants of the pagan tribes. Culturally, I understand why this would have been done. I could even see God himself performing the task. Having the Israelites […]

We would be wise to avoid contributing to a culture of materialism, both in the commercial sense of the word, and the spiritual sense of the word.
