This work by Lang is a very detailed study of just a few parables: The Sower, the Mustard Seed and the Leaven, the Hid Treasure and the Pearl of Great Price, the Ten Virgins, the Talents, the Good Samaritan, the Barren Fig-Tree, the Unjust Steward, the Unprofitable Servants, the Friend at Midnight and the Unjust Judge (Importunate Widow), the Pharisee and the Publican, the Progidal Son, and the Lost Sheep.

CONTENTS

Democrats violate the Bill of Rights
Democrats violate the Bill of Rights I reference an article in American Thinker that explains the Democrats' violation of most of the bill of rights. Whereas they are elected American politicians, each one is sworn to uphold the Constitution, and their way of governing is in flagrant violation of the law they swear to uphold.
