I am a Christian libertarian and I love the freedom that comes with both of these philosophies. I am forever a Christian first, meaning that I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins on the cross and rose from the dead three days later. I also believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God. I am confident that there is strong philosophical and historical evidence to support these claims. I have studied the works of people like William Lane Craig and Bart D. Ehrman to assist me in this journey. One of my goals is to arm all Christians with the knowledge and ability to combat arguments from atheists and other non-Christians. I am hoping that this will fill a major gap that I see in today’s Christian world. I want to start a conversation. I truly enjoy discussing ideas with people, more specifically ideas about politics and religion, the two things that you were always told to never discuss with people. I want to open up a discussion in an open, honest, and thoughtful manner.
Another goal of this blog is to convince Christians and non-Christians alike that the two party system is obsolete and we as Americans need to look for political candidates that mirror our principles. Principles are important for Christians and non-Christians alike, and if we as a country want to actually stick to our principles then we need to open up our options to other candidates and stop blindly following people simply because they have an ‘R’ or a ‘D’ by their name. I want to explore the idea of political freedom with the readers so that we can become more free as a people.
The third idea that I like to ponder is that of morality, where does it come from, why do certain people have different moral guidelines than others and the best of all, is there an objective moral standard? I have found the idea of morality to cause great stirs in many people and to me that is when the best discussions happen.
Since these ideas can intertwine with personal values and overlap with more emotional subjects, I want to ensure the type of discussion where there will be no personal insults allowed, only a critique of ideas. We all need to constantly reevaluate ourselves and our ideas, and to do this, we must open ourselves, and our ideas up to criticism. If you have a problem with this simple rule, please leave and save me the trouble of blocking/deleting your comments.
Thank you and I hope to learn a great deal from you all!
