Animal Control

What the Bible tells us about animal control illustrates God’s view of human responsibility and justice. We saw last week in Micah 6:8 that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God. One particularly thorny aspect of justice is the question of unintended consequences. When someone intentionally commits a crime whether that is premeditated or not we can see how justice is served, but what about when someone acts without an intention Read more […]

Capital Punishment by God’s Standard

The law enforcement community has been congratulating itself on the lowing of violent crime statistics. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports, for example, records the murders in 1994 as 23,326 as contrast with 2013 (the latest report available) as 14,196.[1] That was until Ferguson and then Baltimore where we have seen a significant uptick.  The FBI director “During his speech at the annual convention of the International Association of Chiefs of Police… said the surge in criticism and protests Read more […]

Power from The King for The Kingdom

God’s kingdom is defied when the law of the King is canceled in favor of laws based on human sin. This week I attended the Watchmen on the Wall conference via the internet and was very encouraged. Five Hundred pastors from all corners of our land gathered to hear what they could do to restore our land. I’ve attended this this annual conference before, and this is the first time I have heard the exhortation to pastors that they should run for office. One of the speakers in fact is a pastor Read more […]

Thinking About Lying

Lying has been making the headlines the past several weeks. We’ve seen NBC anchor Brian Williams suspended for lying about a wartime story as well as lying in a Hurricane Katrina report.  How about the Imposter’s chief strategist, David Axelrod, admits in a new book that Obama lied all along during his first-term election campaign about his position on sodomite un-marriage. He was for it all along, but lied to get black Christians to vote for him (which by the way they did in droves).  Read more […]

Who Owns the Land?

No matter who claims it, Jesus is the One who owns the land. The battle of worldviews was on full display last week. Consider just Tuesday and Thursday for a moment. Thursday was the 42nd anniversary of the wretched opinion of the Supreme’s to declare that a woman can hire a contract killer to murder the baby she is carrying in her own womb. The wicked opinion known as Roe v. Wade. The court claimed to protect not only the murderer, but the woman who hires that murderer from prosecution Read more […]

Reality or Make-Believe? “Civil Rights” In Ferguson

If your home is like my home, you have a kitchen where you, among other things, prepare and maybe also eat your meals. Again, if you are like me, you, of course, stand and walk around on the floor of the kitchen and you don’t try to walk on the ceiling or on any of the walls.  And you don’t try to place, say, a bowl of soup on the wall because it would immediately spill to the floor. The very idea of trying to operate your kitchen (or for that matter, any other room in your home) in Read more […]

Authority from the Governed – Nowhere Else!

All authority comes from the individuals and is provided to their representatives in government through an expressed powers document called a constitution. The understanding that all authority for government actions comes from the people individually is the fourth most important principle of freedom and the cornerstone of true freedom. This principle is set forth in the third sentence of the “Declaration” that reads, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving Read more […]

When Healing Becomes a Crime

This has been an eventful week to say the least. One of the blessings this past week was to see how well my friend Joe did in his campaign for county sheriff.  That was a very encouraging result which bodes well for November’s election.  Of course Institute on the Constitution’s co-founder, Michael A. Peroutka’s, win is still being counted. Though I did not prevail, my campaign demonstrated that the establishment Democrats do not speak for a significant portion of the people they claim Read more […]

What Law Is and What Law Isn’t and Why It Matters

Last year, the legislature in my state of Maryland, enacted something called Senate Bill 281.  This “enactment” (notice, please, that I am not calling it a “law”) blatantly violates the God-given right for Marylanders to keep and bear arms for their individual and common defense, and its purpose and intent run contrary to the clear language of the Second Amendment. Now, as I said, I am calling SB281 an “enactment,” and I am NOT calling it a “law.” My source of authority for NOT calling it Read more […]

Jan Brewer Veto Represents The Pursuit Of Unhappiness

When Arizona Governor Jan Brewer recently vetoed a bill that would have given some measure of protection to business owners in Arizona who wished to exercise their liberty of conscience and their right NOT to be associated with persons and activities that violate their religious beliefs, she demonstrated, I believe, what happens when civil government becomes untethered from God’s eternal, transcendent standard of right and wrong. Apparently bowing to pressure from many groups, including Read more […]

God’s Law: Divine Directions

I filed for the County Council campaign this past Monday in the 5th district of Anne Arundel County. It is interesting to watch some of the reactions. There are those who decry my campaign claiming I would impose a theocracy upon our county. It would appear that they think my belief system is a danger to their liberty. That somehow believing, as our Founders did, that there is a Creator God, the God of the Bible and that our Rights come from Him and that the sole purpose of human civil government Read more […]

Rethinking Citizenship

Perhaps you remember as I do a tradition of immigration to this land. My first ancestors came to these shores in the first waves of migration following the deluge.  They ultimately became known as the Penobscot Indians. Then those bearing my surname came here in 1635 Anno Domini. I am the descendant of immigrants. Here in this land there is no one who can claim to be original.  We are all descendants of immigrants to these shores. But I recall hearing about the immigrants that came through Ellis Read more […]
