  • ”I know about Bible verses that teach forgiveness, loving enemies, trusting God and not killing another human, etc. But is there a biblical justification for self-defense when your home and family are threatened?”—Robert

    There are several ways to approach this question:
    The “natural theologian” would claim that in nature, the instinct of all animals is to protect the nest and the young.
    One deduces from this fact that self-defense is hard-wired into our existence.  This “instinct” is consistent with a biblical faith that places a high value on home and family.

  • Earlier this month, the Los Alamos Youth Food project took the next step in creating a community garden and greenhouse with Los Alamos Middle School.
    The Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and The Family YMCA-coordinated initiative received the signed memorandum of agreement with Los Alamos Public Schools required to start building.
    LAPS Superintendent Gene Schmidt spoke about the recent presentation.
    “Sylvan Argo presented a very compelling and convincing explanation about the importance of introducing students to the world of growing their own vegetables, learning the importance of composting and utilizing space when it is available,” he said.

  • Thomas C. Reed, former secretary of the Air Force under presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter and co-author with Danny Reed of “The Nuclear Express,” returns to Los Alamos to sign his first novel, “The Tehran Triangle.”
    While taking a trip through New Mexico three years ago, Reed noticed the Santa Fe railroad ran past Trinity, the first nuclear test site.
    “How logical, I thought, for the Iranians to simply build another Hiroshima-type A-bomb in El Paso, ship it to Trinity by rail, then fire it by cell phone when it got to ground zero,” Reed said.
