  2. John Wheeler (guest columnist)

Why is there so much confusion about morality in America today? Is it because we lack consensus, or that the consensus is changing so quickly? Is it because we have lost sight of cause and effect? Is it because government has taken to itself executive, legislative and judicial powers previously unimagined? Or is it simply that the lessons of history are not...

  2. Robert McMinn (guest columnist)

Although the existence of atoms is considered an undisputed scientific truth today, it has not always been so.

In June 1948, the Soviet Union blockaded the divided, war-ravaged city of Berlin. Resentful of Allied plans for German reunification, they closed the capital’s roads, railways and rivers.

Years ago, a friend and I stood on a mountain crest located on the Cumberland Plateau. Before us were broad grassy meadows, created from land that had been strip-mined.

When I was in high school, I was in a one-act play that reached the state finals. Our last competition started at 9:00 p.m.—on Friday evening. As a Sabbath-keeper, I wasn’t able to participate.

What if money were no object? Who hasn't had this question put to them by a friend or acquaintance? What would be your answer? Would you decide to travel, buy a house or pay off your mortgage?

  2. Roger Meyer (guest columnist)

Even commonly accepted science attests to the truth that the universe had a beginning. Scientists generally label the leading theory of the origins of the universe as the “Big Bang” theory.
