Live Not by Lies and the Danger of Soft Totalitarianism

Throughout history, Christians have faced demands to be silent. Throughout history, they refused. In Live Not By Lies: a Manual for Christian Dissidents, blogger and author Rod Dreher thinks Christians in the West are entering a season where we will not only have to decide whether we will be silent; we will have to decide whether we will allow ourselves to be forced into going along with what is not true, with lies.

Finding the Courage to Stand for What We Believe

In what could be the motto for our day, Hamlet claimed, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” We have been taught that “truth” is the result of our subjective interpretation of our subjective experiences.

The fallacy of this reasoning becomes apparent the moment we recognize that those who reject absolute truth do so absolutely.

The Wall Street Journal reports that “a tired public lets its guard down, triggering more infections and restrictions that in turn compound the fatigue.”

Therein lies my point: The greater our challenges, the more necessary our courage.
