  • Conservatives and the Constitution: The Political Imperative of Retaining our Allegiance to Constitutional Governance

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    May 07, 2014: Conservatism has always contended that representative self-government must be grounded in the moral self-control of its citizens, that liberty should be ordered to prevent it from descending into license, and that liberty should only be constrained in order to ensure the public good. Conservatism finds its ontological foundation in the concepts of a personal Creator, human equality under him, the nobility of man, and the reality of human imperfectability.

  • Sexual Assault on Campus a Symptom of a Larger Problem

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    May 06, 2014: Sexual assault is a moral evil. This is clear from the teaching of Jewish and Christian Scripture and from the voice of human conscience. It is an assault on the dignity and privacy of the person, a warping act that, whether committed against an adult or child, does violence to body, soul, and mind.

  • Christian Faith and Marijuana Use

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    May 05, 2014: According to the White House National Office of Drug Control Policy, "Since 1996, 20 states and Washington, D.C. have passed laws allowing smoked marijuana to be used for a variety of medical conditions." This trend reflects what seems to be a growing national tolerance for the use of marijuana for both recreational and medical purposes.

  • Truth in a Time of Deceit and Difficulty

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    May 05, 2014: Truth has a decided disadvantage in a society where deconstructionism, moral relativism, sentiment, and spiritism concurrently infuse the cultural center: It is inflexible.

  • The Battle for Life Endures -- and So Must We

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    May 01, 2014: The abortion battle is neither won nor lost, which is why Christians have to keep waging it. Consider two recent items in the news. The first from CBS News: "Oregon incinerator may have been burning tissue from aborted fetuses." Local officials expressed dismay and anger. "I'm sorry I didn't know that this included fetal tissue, but now that I do know, believe me things change," Marion County (Oregon) board of commissioners chairman Sam Brentano said. "We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility," according to Marion County commissioner Janet Carlson.

  • Evangelicals Are Too Nice

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    April 30, 2014: Robust orthodoxy is out of fashion. Tenuous, tempered, nuanced articulations of flailing faith appear with frequency in Christian magazines, blog sites, books, and sermons. Woe unto him who makes a declarative, propositional statement -- it's regarded as mean, dogmatic, fundamentalistic (no, not that!), harsh, lecturesome, oversimplistic, and hostile.

  • Welcome News in the Battle for Life

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    April 25, 2014: The battle to defend unborn babies from abortion and their mothers from the predatory and deceptive abortion industry is long and tedious. Rather than one sweeping victory, the pro-life movement has experienced many small and partial victories in the 41 years since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision.

  • The Temptation of Evangelical Snobbery

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    April 17, 2014: That Evangelicals Protestants are, like everyone else, heirs of Adam should come as no surprise to anyone who understands the basics of biblical anthropology or to the honest believer who simply takes a good look at himself in the mirror.

  • Stand with Civility - But Stand

    by Rob Schwarzwalder

    April 10, 2014: Civility counts for a great deal in a society in which representative self-government means substantial and sometimes grave differences of opinion. No country divided by opposing opinions can survive if its citizens take up arms against one another due to political disagreements. A certain war waged on our soil from 1861-1865 proves it.
