Silly Ideas

Many people actively work in the world of “things”. Car mechanics, aircraft designers, electricians, farmers, bridge designers, bridge builders, and bridge painters are some of these people. Plumbers, carpenters, crane operators, machinists, gardeners, concrete masons, and shoemakers are a few more. Nature’s laws of physics, chemistry, and biology keep these people in check. As you...

Men Need Work

With a population of over 300 million people, America can be a statistical sociologist’s dream. Because doctors record so many details about patients, a treasure trove of medical data is available for research (we hope scrubbed of identifying information). Particulars of patients’ gender, height, weight, medications, and ailments are all there to be studied. When...

President Biden and Transgender Day

The American Alliance of Jews and Christians suggests that the president’s message to Christians is clear: There is no longer room in America for you.  There’s no room in America for Christians! That’s the message President Biden imparted to the country last week when he declared Easter Sunday to be ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’. Transgender activists

Effete Intellectuals Ignore Reality

In some jobs, you work mostly with people. Teachers, nurses, waitresses, customer service specialists, therapists, and stewardesses come to mind. Not surprisingly they are occupations which women often prefer and happen to be good at. (Yes, of course, I know that these are obsolete ‘stereotypes’ but humor me and go back a few years.) Then...

Too Much Togetherness

We all know the sad story of the loner becoming a mass murderer. It’s not hard to find dozens of tragic accounts of callous killings in which the one word that consistently appears in the narratives is the word “loner”. It seems that when God said, “It is not good for man to be alone”...

Power All the Way to the End

Have you ever found that once you’re in the midst of a project, you lose some of the enthusiasm and excitement that motivated you at its beginning? It’s just plain harder to keep going on an existing enterprise than it was to launch it in the first place. As children, we were particularly susceptible to...

Knowledge Before Action?

Yielding to the temptation to offer advice is fearsomely dangerous. When asked for advice, it is indeed tempting to respond magnanimously as the wiser and more experienced person. Condescendingly giving advice, as a rich man grants pennies to a beggar, certainly strokes the ego, but it is oh, so very dangerous. I know of what...

A Force for Good

You have just arrived in a strange city and you’re hungry. Spotting a restaurant over the street, you enter and gratefully, sit down. The waitress soon comes because no other table in the restaurant is occupied; you have the place to yourself. Glancing at the menu you place your order, but the waitress irritably informs...

The Missing Morality Matrix

You’re in luck if you want a deal on a battery car. Even with government incentives that penalize Kansas farmers to underwrite the purchase of Teslas in Beverly Hills, e-cars aren’t selling. General Motors has abandoned its e-car production targets. Mercedes Benz is offering discounts of up to $5,000 to buyers of its electric vehicles....

Destruction is Fun

I’ve often been asked what the world might look like if God had never provided His Manufacturer’s Manual. The answer is that without a Scriptural system of values and the blueprint of government that Scripture provides, we’d live in a world of unrestrained barbarism. Or as Thomas Hobbes put it in his 1651 book Leviathan,...
