Special Edition: The Social Conservative Review - August 27, 2015

Welcome back to the Social Conservative Review! After an August hiatus, we are easing into fall with an abbreviated version and will send out our regular edition next week.

This shortened SoCon focuses on two issues: religious liberty and the Planned Parenthood videos. Why? Because they both involve urgent threats, one to our "first freedom," the other to something even more fundamental -- life itself.

God is the Author of life, and thus taking life unjustly is an assault on His sovereignty. God is the Author of liberty; since as He has made us in His image, our foremost duty is to follow Him unimpeded by any human institution -- including the state.

Since 1973, the right to life has been quashed for upwards of 60 million unborn persons. The right to practice one's faith in not just private but also public and professional life is under growing threat.

Yet as Christians confront evil, they are mindful of its ultimate defeat, its eternal impermanence, and its impotence in the presence of a good, victorious, and omnipotent God. It is with that confidence that we love our enemies, fight bad policies, and work for justice.
