"I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious." —Thomas Jefferson

Terry PaulsonGive Me Individual Liberty Not Government Dependence

by Terry Paulson

Dennis Prager has recently added a pearl of wisdom to his repertoire of truths — "The larger the government, the smaller the individual." The biggest danger from President Obama's march to bigger government rests in what this means to the grounding principles that have made America great. Will America renew its commitment to individual liberty and personal responsibility or give in to government dependence and control?

As current Tea Party demonstrators would agree, Benjamin Franklin criticized King George's high taxes to pay for the welfare entitlements of his time, "I affirm that there is no country in the world in which the poor are more idle, dissolute, drunken, and insolent. The day you passed that act (taxes for welfare), you took away from before their eyes the greatest of all inducements to industry, frugality, and sobriety, by giving them a dependence on someone else than a careful accumulation during youth and health, for support in age or sickness. In short, you offered a premium for the encouragement of idleness, and you should not now wonder that it has had its effect in the increase of poverty."

The Light of the World: Justice, Good Works, and Redeeming the Social Order

Christian ClingmanBy Christopher J. Ortiz
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14
According to the book of Revelation, the ultimate purpose is a realized city (Rev. 21–22), not a realized church in the institutional sense. For those bent on the establishment of liturgy over the establishment of justice, their conception of John's apocalypse places emphasis upon incense, prayers, chanting, and angels. I find in this hermeneutic a strange twist on literalism where the practical nature of the Kingdom as proclaimed by Christ is lost in the sea of patristic speculation.

Nordskog Publishing urges all Americans to seek our God and Savior this National Day of Prayer Thursday, May 6. We live in an era of dangerous anti-Christian forces in social and civil spheres, in the United States and world-wide. America’s historic Christian liberty is at stake. Such understanding makes this year’s National Day of Prayer theme, "Prayer for such a time as this," a particularly apt one. "The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him" (Nahum 1:7). —ed. (visit

Contending for the ConstitutionGOD'S TEN COMMANDMENTS
by Dr. Francis Nigel Lee

God gave man Ten Commandments. Every one of them is vital, in all ages. For only by observing them can man live a full life each week; maintain a happy marriage; and function well in his home, his job, and even in the world internationally.

God Himself is the Root of the Moral Law, and perfectly reflects it. Salvation was never by the works of the Law. For even before the fall, man was to keep it out of gratitude for God’s great grace. Unfallen man kept the whole Decalogue. The Sabbath, Marriage, the Forbidden Fruit, and the Tree of Life all reveal it. When man broke God’s Law, he degenerated more and more—from the Fall to the Flood. The Patriarchs kept it, and the Prophets called man back to keep it. So, too, should we.
