Making deals with the devil never work out.
Reflections on Life & Liberty
So much time is spent "in the fight" that it is easy to forget what we are supposed to be fighting for. To answer that, join Michael Quinn Sullivan each week as he puts the continuing fight for life and liberty in historical, biblical, and personal context.
Day you have the faith of a Roman centurion?
All law is a matter of morality; the only question is if that law is in keeping with, or foreign to, the moral precepts of holy scripture.

As citizens, we must look past the political packaging.
Too many politicians rank talking ahead of doing.
The issues facing our republic are deadly serious, but that doesn’t mean we always have to be.
Like Hunter Biden, wealth and political status were intertwined for the rich young man in the often misquoted New Testament story.
Politicians can serve the establishment, or the citizens, but not both.
The gooey, saccharine-sweet niceness demanded of us by politicians isn’t found anywhere in the Bible.
A Muslim shrine built in the form of a Christian church on the ruins of a pagan temple built on the ruins of a Jewish temple, built on the rock designated by God for a sacrifice.
Governing power draws egomaniacs and sycophants.
For the price of a tax cut, Jeroboam turned the people of God into idolatrous pagans.

To win the real fight, you have to be the one to define it.
Too many people want to be successfully unfaithful.
However exalted or self-important we may be, we all eventually
become a footnote in the great story of history.
We can be a self-governing Republic, or we can be a subservient people governed by tyrants.
We must stop seeing the military as props in political theater but as a precious and limited resource.
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
We have too often adopted a participation-trophy mentality when it comes to political engagement.
Let us never forget what a privilege it is to fight for liberty!
Texas independence was achieved not in timid bites but in bold actions.
Rather than fight the enemy, we have contented ourselves with blaming the victims and shunning the warriors.
What’s so good about the day when an innocent man was executed by the political elite for challenging their authority?
By refusing to fight from the moral high ground, we find our culture in shambles.
Private property rights are front-and-center in the Bible.
In the real world, a deal is only as good as the tangible results.
When we’re making excuses for politicians, we’re subjects and not citizens.
Texas shouldn’t have been, yet here we are.
