Living Wisely #4: Godliness Over Gain

This here is a word sure to prick the hearts of many in the western world, for we are a society greedy with gain.  If godliness and gain were to be offered to you, what would you choose?  What would you see as of greatest significance?  Undoubtedly, many would choose gain – the treasures of…

Why You Need a Liberal Arts Education & How to Give Yourself One

A liberal arts education, especially from a Christian perspective, consists of learning from both general and special revelation, or nature and the Scriptures.  These are, as it has so often been said, God’s two books.  More generally, we can think of a liberal arts education as an education in wisdom.  It seeks to understand the…

Living Wisely #3: Family as the Bedrock of Wisdom

I like to think of Proverbs as a guide to or treatise on the fifth commandment: “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you” (Exod. 20:12).  My reason for holding this view is because many of these proverbs consist of…

We Need a Political Reformation: A Return to Nature & Nature’s God

In the July/August 2020 edition of The American Conservative, Matthew J. Peterson writes an article entitled, “America Needs a Re-Founding”. I resonate with most of it.

The riches of wisdom are to be found in none other than He who is all-wise.  This is essentially what is meant by Proverbs 1:7, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (cf. 9:10). This fear of God is not a cowering fear, but a fear…

Recommended Articles & Videos for Understanding Our Times

2020 has been one crazy year, and we’re only halfway through. I for one am not surprised considering it’s a major election year and the radical left has already made clear it will do just about anything to make sure President Trump is not re-elected. Don’t misunderstand, I’m not suggesting that everything is a conspiracy…

Living Wisely #1: What Is Wisdom?

Wisdom is more than knowledge. It is more than knowing the difference between right and wrong. This is indeed a part of wisdom, but it is not the whole.
