Building Blocks—A Necessary Perspective

Nov 25, 2022

Today David explains how Psalm 37:1-5 applies when things are going wrong all around us. It provides the necessary perspective for those who see the need to restore what few people even know they have lost, the Western Legal Tradition.

Building Blocks—Are Christians Allying Themselves with ‘Deeds of Darkness’?

Nov 17, 2022

The Apostle Paul says Christians are not to “have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness,” but are to “expose them.” Yet, when it comes to legislation being filed around the country opposing “gender affirming care” for minors, many Christians are being tempted to join those whose worldview is darkness and, therefore, ultimately unfruitful. David exposes the “dark” worldview to which many are falling prey by using observations by J. Gresham Machen taken from Christianity and Liberalism.

Building Blocks—Where Does Science “Fit” Today in Law and Policy

Nov 11, 2022

Last week we learned how common law is rooted in a Biblical cosmology. Today David uses excerpts from interviews with Jeff Shafer and legislation being filed around the country pertaining to transgenderism to explain why science not only can be of no real help on this legal issue, but how its current use is undermining law and parental rights in particular.

Building Blocks—The ‘Nature of Law’ We Once Believed

Nov 4, 2022

In June, the United States Supreme Court decided a 2nd Amendment controversy and reversed Roe v. Wade citing William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England as authority. After you listen, you will be astounded to learn how much the cosmology of Genesis Chapters 1 through 3 informed Blackstone’s description of the nature of law. You will know what even most Christian lawyers don’t know about law.

Building Blocks—Finding the “Beautiful” in Law

Oct 27, 2022

When faced with a difficult task—like restoring the Western Legal Tradition—convictions based on truth are essential. But what will inspire the courage necessary to the task: truth alone or truth that is beautiful. If the latter, what can be said that makes law beautiful to anyone?

Building Blocks—Don’t Be Gullible

Oct 20, 2022

If the Western Legal Tradition is to be re-built, then it is good to know what the “other side” sounds like, what arguments they make. Today, David takes audio clips of arguments made by a Republican state legislator who is a lawyer and professing Christian to expose humanistic legal thinking. His arguments swayed other Republicans into not supporting legislation that allowed a man and woman to marry without having to first get permission from the government.

Building Blocks—Understanding the Two Kinds of Legal Systems and Why That’s Important

Oct 13, 2022

Few today would know the difference between common and positive law legal systems, positive laws and negative laws. Even fewer would think the difference matters—law is law. Today David uses part of conversation between Choc Knox and Jason Farley from Choc Knox Unplugged to explore the difference and why it is vitally important to a country of immigrants.

Building Blocks—Resisting the “Hobnail boot” of Totalitarianism

Oct 7, 2022

We live in a totalitarian condition disguised by the fact we still hold elections. Today, with help from Theology Pugcast, David explains why that is so and what must be recovered in Christian thinking if civil liberty is to be rebuilt.

Building Blocks

Sep 30, 2022

David begins a new series today by taking a story from a headline this week about Governor Youngkin “restoring parental rights” and explaining why he is doing no such thing. With this story, Matt Walsh’s explosive story about Vanderbilt’s transgender procedures on minors, and the help of Dr. Tom Price from Theology Pugcast, David explains the first building block.

Restoring the Ruins—Foundation for Hope

Sep 23, 2022

To close this series on the ruins of America’s legal tradition, rooted in the Western Legal Tradition, David explains the surest foundation any Christian can have that it can be restored. The foundation for that sure and certain hope, he explains, rests on a covenant seldom discussed in evangelicalism.
