Good morning everyone and welcome to another week of Interviewing Christian Authors where we meet a new Christian author each week and explore their work. I’m Christine Tate, the moderator for this thread, producer of the annual Virginia Beach Christian Authors Festival, and author of The No-Homework Women’s Bible Study: Group Hug and My Prayer Journal: Remembering God’s Answers: Purple Daisy Cover Design.

This week, we’ll be talking to Karla Perry. Welcome Karla! Please tell us about your book, Back To The Future: Rebuilding America’s Stability.

Karla Perry says:

Hi Christine, Thank you! I’m excited to be a part of this Amazon Interview.

My book, Back to the Future: Rebuilding America’s Stability is a journey into the past to discover the truths we left behind as a nation so that we can pull them into the present and secure a more stable future for our nation. There are many Christians who want to go back to a golden era and recreate yesteryear, but I want to inspire people to dig into American and Western history to pull into today what made America great so we can move forward and not go back into our idea of a golden age. In doing so, I discuss some of the things that made us go off road as a nation. In this vein, I cover philosophy, education, history, science, postmodernism, journalism, the family, and the church.  Read more

The Specialty of Freedom

I’m becoming of the persuasion that freedom is more a responsibility than a right. It’s not a condition of human nature, but a product of it’s voluntary restraint. Thus, freedom is not endemic to fallen humanity, but a condition rightly available to humanity. It is an environment we work to obtain and maintain. Man can neither bestow it nor impose it. We cannot achieve it by wresting it away from another. Removing the tyrant often results in a different, and perhaps, greater enslavement. Lack of oppression does not equate with the presence of freedom any more than a lack of war infers a presence of peace.

George-Washington-PresidentLaws do not create freedom, they protect freedom. Government, in a free nation, is instituted among men to ensure the preservation of freedom for the good of the whole. However, if the freedom being protected decays, the laws cease to function as its preservation. George Washington famously opined that America’s government was for a “wholly religious and moral people and inadequate to the governance of any other.” 

Freedom, then, is endemic, not to a state of nature, but to a state of being that is Read more
