There is a great misconception within the world that suggests that "social justice", in the modern, liberal political definition, remains a gateway to Heaven. (pg 150)
The above quote comes from the chapter on Free Will as it pertains to an individuals God given right to either choose God or to reject Him, to accept or reject God's gift of eternal life with God in Heaven. Free will has forever been a topic for debate among humans and this chapter will be valuable to all who read it.
Liberty - and true joy - as Ronald Reagan once implied, evades us once we give up on God. For without God, there can be no life, no liberty, and no pursuit of happiness. Only sorrow and subjugation to the state - the antithesis of God and faith. (pg. 64)
The above quote builds upon the beginning of chapter 4, titled The Singular Issue.
In modern political circles, it seems sacrilegious to represent oneself as a single-issue voter. We have those who are, for instance, pro-abortion, pro-gun control, pro-immigration, etc. squared off against those who are pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and support strong and secured borders. To choose any of these issues to concentrate upon quickly finds the citizen the brunt of seditious political attack. That said, can there be a singular, omnipotent issue from which all other public concerns arise? Certainly: human life. (pg 57)
As I hope you can see, this book could not be more timely considering the current political atmosphere, the battle against political correctness and government intrusion on our personal lives and freedoms, most importantly religious freedom.
