Staying Inside The Laws of God

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

One thing I’ve learned by living in the reality of rural America as opposed to the concrete and neon of Washington or New York City is that freedom can be deceiving. Or maybe better said, freedom is often the opposite of what it appears to be.

For example, when I drive through the ranches of Kansas and see cattle roaming freely in the fields, they are always surrounded by a fence.… Continue Reading

Mark Zuckerberg’s Metaverse And The Progressives’ Dark Pedigree

Written by Robert Knight

What do socialists, Marxists, “transhumanists,” Mark Zuckerberg’s Metaverse, the LGBTQ movement, “woke” academic and corporate leftists, Davos economic elites and the left-wing of the Democratic Party have in common?

They are all invested in a progressive, secular worldview based on the idea that humans evolve toward higher levels of being and just need help getting there.

Implicit is the idea that God is an antiquated superstition, not the benevolent, omniscient creator of the universe.… Continue Reading

Aslan Is On The Move

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Thanksgiving is past, and Advent is once again upon us. Yet, the daily headlines prove our world is a broken mess, one that we are apparently helpless to fix.

The conflict we face between our dreams and reality can cause a peculiar mix of emotions. Gratitude is mixed with grief. Anticipation gives way to antipathy. Fortitude is compromised by fear.

This tension is addressed in one of my favorite stories from C.S.Continue Reading

The Mission of a Modern Christian School

Written by Trevor Grant Thomas

A quote that is sometimes mistakenly credited to C.S. Lewis declares, “Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.” A clue that this was not uttered by Lewis is that it doesn’t quite capture the truth. As Lewis would well know, an education without values would be quite unlikely to be “useful.” What’s more, virtually all education incorporates some sort of values.… Continue Reading

Happy Pride Month! Celebrating the Essential Vice and Utmost Evil

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

On June 1, 2021, Joe Biden used his bully pulpit to encourage Americans to stand proud in our nation’s march for what he called equality. “Pride stands for courage. [Pride] stands for justice, and most of all [pride] stands for love … Happy Pride Month!” the president tweeted.

In the fall of 1942, C.S. Lewis took to the airways of his nation to encourage his fellow citizens to, likewise, stand resolute.… Continue Reading

Why Conservatives Should Not Support ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner For Governor

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Caitlyn” (aka Bruce) Jenner has announced his candidacy for governor of California. The question is should conservatives support him? After all, Jenner stands for lower taxes, common-sense border security, and less government intrusion in our daily lives. Surely this would be better than the tyrannical rule of Gavin Newsom, wouldn’t it?

The answer, in a word, is no, and the simple reason is, likewise, one word — priorities.… Continue Reading

The Equality Act And The Abolition Of Women

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

On Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Equality Act by a vote of 224-206.

Proponents of the legislation, such as U.S. Representative David Cicilline, Rhode Island Democrat, declared, “Every American deserves respect and dignity and [this is why it’s] important that the Equality Act become law …”

But here’s the thing: He’s lying. And so is every single Democrat who aligns with him and parrots this deceptive blather.… Continue Reading

The ‘Brave New World’ of College Campuses

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

“That is what happens to those who pluck and eat fruits at the wrong time and in the wrong way … The fruit is good, but they loathe it ever after. All get what they want; they do not always like it.” ~Aslan in C.S. Lewis’ “The Magician’s Nephew”

In “The Chronicles of Narnia,” C.S. Lewis tells the story of the young boy named Digory who is sent on a journey by Aslan to retrieve an apple from a particular garden beyond the western mountains.… Continue Reading

The Abolition of Women

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

If there was any remaining question that corporate oligarchs and today’s educational ruling class now have near Orwellian control over all of American culture, [recent] news should remove all doubt.

Take for example the story of Dr. Allan Josephson, a distinguished professor and director of the division of child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of Louisville, who was recently not only removed from his leadership position and but also informed that his contract for the 2019-20 academic year would not be renewed.… Continue Reading

Drafting Jesus for Unholy Purposes

Written by Robert Knight

The question is often raised:  Who is Jesus?

As C.S. Lewis wrote, the Gospels leave no gray area:  Either Jesus was God Incarnate or a madman for claiming to be so.  Merely being “a good teacher” doesn’t cut it.

The New Testament says that Jesus is not only the Jews’s long-awaited Messiah but the Son of God, who was sacrificed for the sins of the whole world, rose from the dead and grants eternal life to all who believe in Him.… Continue Reading
