Let me commend to our readers the work of noted Christian apologist John Locke on the topic of liberty and happiness. His recent work on human understanding is, perhaps, wrong on innate ideas, but attempts a consistent description of human capacity in a Biblical framework.

Who knows if his comments on government (in his second treatise) will prove influential? Many young people, one thinks of the colonials, have been much interested in his work.

I suspect that before moving forward on this topic most of us will have to account for the work of our Brother in Christ: John Locke.
