Whatever party we might vote for, most RP readers probably identify themselves as politically conservative. That makes this article an important read for us all.
“So what if the boy wants to wear a dress; what’s the big deal?” If you’ve been asked this question or one like it, this National Review article is an answer. God tells us we are made male and female (Gen. 1:26-28) and those who “in compassion” say otherwise are only showing God right when He says the “mercy of the wicked is cruel (Prov. 12:10b).
In Venezuela and many other parts of the world, poverty can happen to people no matter what they might do, and even in the stable West many things are still beyond our control. But the Fraser Institute has found that in Canada poverty is largely a result of “bad choices” rather than “bad luck.” The poverty rate here is less than 1 percent for people who do 3 things:
- graduate high school
- work full time
- have children only in a committed relationship
Of three, two are obviously biblical: working full-time (Col. 3:23, Prov. 12:11, Prov. 13:4) and having kids inside marriage. Graduating high school is the wish of most parents so there are some Fifth Commandment implications there too.
