Essays and Speeches
We need truth in order to live. Although sufficiently available to us, truth has become elusive for many people. So how is it that we need truth but not seem to find it? The answer lies in our rejection of the underlying order of the universe, which we speak of as law. For us to recognize law is to recognize truth. It is law that causes the earth to revolve around the sun and men to bleed when cut. It is also law that speaks from our inmost depths, commanding the love of God and neighbor, the honor of parents and the protection of our children from harm, to the cost of our lives.
The articles on this page touch on various topics. In one way or another, however, they all deal with the moral law, particularly with regard to the protection of innocent human life. It is our hope that these writings will assist those in the trenches who are fighting the “good fight,” as well the many who are confused about truth and law and have lost their way.
