Because offering an alternative to the failed two-party system we see utterly destroying our constitutional republic is too deep an issue for blogging to handle alone, I have thus far resisted the near-necessity of encouraging Christians to abandon this system. But now that my book (UNGOD: Unmasking the Dark Image of Hell) is available and outlines for us the Divine blueprint for appropriate human government, I shall hold off no longer. Continue reading
I write so often concerning the idea of human freedom because it underpins the important issue of human dignity. When considering the issue of human government, we must always remember that humanity was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26,27), and God is free.

To be sure, there are no perfect individuals available for public office, but simply because we must choose from a field of flawed individuals does not mean that our standards for those we do elect or appoint should be low or non-existent.
