An Empty Quiver

On earth, the only truest wealth is life. And children are the surest means, and signs, of continuing life. An "empty quiver" leads only to an impoverished state. What price can be put on the joy of familial ties, paternal affection, or loyal and proud legacies?

Was F.J. Stahl a Relativist?

There is a developing renaissance of historic conservatism, in part due to many recent translations, among which is the nineteenth century German legal theorist Friedrich J. Stahl.

What is the Common Good?

We cannot say that what is good for the individual or the community is devoid of moral content. And moral content is determined by God’s decree, be it a direct command from God, or an eternal decree regarding the purpose of man, which is to glorify God and enjoy Him for eternity.

TRC is “connecting a Biblical worldview and social/political thought that is a needed and important work for God’s people.”

Rev. Doug Leaman, BPC, Missionary in Brazil

The Postmodern Religion

A mind transformed by a Biblical worldview understands the importance of the Reformed doctrines of grace and the five solas. As David Wells pointed out, “It is not the (post)modern culture that should be telling it what to think. The principle here is sola Scriptura, not sola cultura.”

The Power and Beauty of Shame

We often think of shame as being excited by guilt, but that is not often the case. Society rejects shame - a God-given mechanism for our good - as detrimental to self-esteem. Is shame really so bad?

Psychology of Political Witch Hunts

Political witch-hunts follow a basic pattern. Random violence, false accusations, and crimes against a vague collective. These witch-hunts drive the cultural revolution, propelling the injustice of social justice.

TRC is an “excellent resource for knowledge.”

John Robert Carman, New Jersey Constitutional Republicans

What is Critical Theory?

Critical theory seeks to obliterate differences of status and power since all differences are purely and artificially constructed not by God, but by man. The question remains, "Can critical theory escape its own claims?"

The Problem With Critical Race Theory Pt 2

This is Part 2 of the discussion regarding Critical Race Theory. This article is a continuation discussing Delgado and Stefancic’s discussion on “nationalism,” followed by a brief discussion of “white privilege."

The Problem With Critical Race Theory Pt 1

This influence is in American academia in the college syllabi that seek to understand history, literature, religion, etc. through lenses that critique capitalism, Christianity, individualism, and social conservatism.

TRC “has thought-provoking and meaningful articles, pertinent to today’s culture and the family.”

Julie Sutton, Julie Sutton Arts

Augustine’s Political Theology

The Augustinian anthropology of sin contained an ethical implication. Members of the City of God have a duty to love God, for this alone restores peace and order to their beings.

Groen’s Conservative Political Theory

Forsaking the supremacy of the divine, transcendent moral order as authoritative standard for societal and political arrangements in favor of the supremacy of man conflicts with divine ordinances and leads to anarchy from which government tyranny alone offers liberation.
