Conquered But Not Occupied

July 20, 2014

First used in the Fifteen Century the word “Levant” has evolved over the centuries. It was originally used to refer to land east of Italy but today it has several different definitions but often refers to the countries of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey. It has been used as a surname, and as a reference to particular countries. Its popularity has been enhanced by the immense publicity given to the tiny state of Israel which in spite of its diminutive size dominates... Read article

Is Judgement Real? Does God Punish Disobedience?

July 7, 2014

Bumper stickers often reflect the quality of the theology that supports American Christianity. “God said it and I believe it” used to be popular. “Are You Saved?” was often seen and a whole variety of challenging, pithy phrases continue to appear: “I Love Jesus”, “Jesus Possess Me”, “Know Jesus, Know Peace”, “Love God Love People”, “One Nation Under God”, “Pray for America”, “Got Jesus”, “Victory In Jesus”, “Honk If You Know Jesus”, “Love God Love People”, etc. etc. The... Read article

Tyranny And Confusion

June 3, 2014

The World Has Lost Understanding… “We regard killing on United Nations ‘peace-keeping-missions’ as ‘necessary’ and to be accepted as a fact of life.  At the same time, our murderous century views with horror God’s law.  God has no right, they hold, to require judgment.  Modern theology believes God should represent love and ‘niceness,’ never justice and judgment.  Humanistic sentiment wants evil-doers to be dealt with gently.  As a result, we have a culture which tolerates criminals, hoodlums,... Read article

Bernays Promoted It

May 31, 2014

A 1928 book entitled “Propaganda” by Edward Bernays begins with these words. “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.  Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way... Read article

The Seeker And The Sought: Finding The Blessing

May 17, 2014

“Gaping holes exist in the scientific understanding of existence, which the sciences answer chiefly be ignoring them. They do not mention purpose (there is none), the possibility of an afterlife (there is none), free will or determinism (we have freely determined that there is no free will), or Good and Evil (evolutionary traits evolved to further cohesion within the pack). Minor omissions, these.” Fred Reed, “Pond Scum” Alas, my favorite contemporary writer is an atheist – grudgingly, maybe even seeking, but... Read article

Fantasy And Reality

May 3, 2014

A Time For Discernment… I am re-reading several of R. J. Rushdoony’s books: “Deuteronomy”, ”Numbers”, “Van Til and the Limits of Reason”, “The Cure of Souls”, “The American Indian”, “Systematic Theology”, Sovereignty”, and, of course, the “Institutes”.   For Christians who reverence the entire Word of God and are willing to submit to His rule, Rushdoony’s writings elicit several “Amens” per page. In his book on Van Til, Rushdoony writes, “What did make itself clear to me... Read article

Are You Ready For Change

April 5, 2014

It Must Start With You… Wisconsin Representative Jim Sensenbrenner is chairman of a committee that is attempting to reform our federal legal codes.  They state the problem this way:  “The United States Code currently contains some 4,500 federal crimes.  Recent studies estimate that approximately 60 new federal crimes are enacted each year, and over the past three decades, Congress has averaged 500 new crimes per decade.  In addition to the statutory criminal offenses, there are thousands of federal regulations... Read article

Judgement

March 24, 2014

Christians React… It is possible that like ancient Judah, the United States is destined to come under despotic rule.  Though we do not have Jeremiah to keep us informed (Jeremiah 27) it appears that the wheels of destiny are carrying us in that direction.  It could be that world tyranny is God’s plan for the ultimate advance of His Kingdom.  Our time is temporal while God’s time is eternal. Jeremiah warned the people of Judah not to resist the Babylonians that it was God’s judgment that caused their captivity... Read article

At The Pinnacle of Power: The God of The Bible

March 5, 2014

It was during the Ides of March 51 years ago that the God of the Bible set this stumbling man on his feet and with much Grace began to grow him into the person He intended him to be.  In those early days of my Christian walk there was much talk about the end times and the soon return of the Savior.  “Jesus is Coming Again” was written in 1957 by John Peterson. Marvelous message we bring, Glorious carol we sing, Wonderful word of the King - Jesus is coming again! (Chorus) Coming again, Coming again; Maybe morning,... Read article

Classic Confrontations: Mostly Dead In America

March 2, 2014

Confrontation is a necessary dam to the progress of evil in society. American policy is now confined to determining which of two evils will be rewarded.  For decades conservatives have been voting for the lesser of two evils, impaired by party loyalty and seeking a maligned victory, they fail to confront egregious evil. Evil is inherent in diversity.  The exclusive righteousness characteristic of ancient Israel was predicated on maintaining religious purity.  That purity is being consistently destructed by toleration. Christian... Read article

Where Do We Go From Here?

February 22, 2014

Do You Really Want To Know? G. Edward Griffin is a leader in the effort to inform the public about the dark blanket of imperialism being stretched across the Globe.  The blanket is still light and much of the free world is still breathing the air of peace, prosperity, and freedom.  But the Specter of the blanket can be seen in the long thin clouds of spray that fill our skies and in the United Nations signs that appear outside our parks.  Strands have invaded our town meetings where the phrase “Sustainable Development”... Read article

The Political Tower of Babel: Government Solution

February 4, 2014

“If law does not reflect the fact that God is the Lord and Sovereign, it will reveal the premise that man and the state are gods.  No more dangerous gods have ever been affirmed by man.”  R. J. Rushdoony Real Christianity is a foreign religion to the majority of those who claim the name.  We tend to think of ourselves as the center of reality and as arbiters of our beliefs and our conduct.  The Christian Church supports this heresy.  In spite of the Bibles unswerving record of God choosing His servants, Christian... Read article

God’s Land: Our Responsibility

January 20, 2014

I wrote previously about our cultural fantasy that forgets we are totally dependent on soil and water.  At the end of his Commentary on the Book of Numbers R. J. Rushdoony writes as follows: “For modern man land has become a commodity and an investment, not essentially a faith inheritance.  Our modern outlook thus warps our perspective.  For this reason, our federal government thinks nothing of allowing in as immigrants an increasing number of people who are religiously and racially hostile to us.  They see... Read article

Onward Christian Soldiers

January 7, 2014

The War Is Against Paganism… Crowns and thrones may perish. Kingdoms rise and wane But the Church of Jesus constant will remain Gates of Hell can never ‘Gainst the Church prevail We have Christ’s own promise And that cannot fail “To gain this victory, we must wage the war.  Too many want victory without the war, as though eloquence, patriotic or religious gush, ever overcame an enemy.”  R. J.  Rushdoony,” Numbers” Pg. 270 Patty and I spent Christmas in Destin, Florida.  Destin is an upscale... Read article

The Weapons of War: For The Church of Jesus Christ

December 22, 2013

In his book “Truth and Transformation” Indian Christian Vishal Mangalwadi tells of the yearly journey to the Ganges River by thousands of low class Hindus.  Every year the priests rob them of their money and treat them despitefully.  In spite of the harsh treatment they continue to return each year.  They return because they believe the Ganges River has healing qualities.  Belief, even irrational belief, is powerful and difficult to correct Freedom for the masses was a product of particular Christianity.  It... Read article

The American Indian

December 6, 2013

Book Review… “The white man wanted what we had, our land, but he didn’t want us.  We wanted what the white man had his improvements, his guns, his modern conveniences – but we didn’t want him.  And so we fought, each wanting what the other had but not wanting the other and trying to eliminate him; and we lost.  That’s the story.”    A mid-Twentieth Century account by an old Indian at the Owyhee reservation in Nevada.  From “The American Indian” R. J. Rushdoony The late Rousas Rushdoony was... Read article
