Libertarianism: the political philosophy of the Old Adam

This article borders on blasphemy.

Government is God's institution designed to protect us from the fallenness of human nature. Libertarianism seeks to defend us from God's institution by giving free reign to fallen human nature.

Libertarianism is the philosophy of the Levite and the priest who were content to uphold the freedom of the man fallen among thieves to bleed to death in the ditch. It is more concerned about the ideological propriety of the motivations for which help is given than that help be given at all.

Not only is libertarianism an ideology which is radically incompatible with Christianity, but it comes very close to being its polar opposite. Seldom in my life have I encountered an article so transparent in its rationalization on behalf of the indefensible, or so brazen in its defense.
