While the media and the public continue to play Monday morning quarterback following the jury verdict handed down in the Zimmerman trial last weekend, there is a certain question in my mind that I have not seen asked by anybody. The question is this: How many potential crime victims of Trayvon Martin have been saved, […]Read More Post-Zimmerman Thoughts: How Many Potential Crime Victims of Trayvon Martin Have Been Saved Since Feb. 2012?
Here is another Blast from the Past reprint! Taken from the archived newsletters of the Institute for Christian Economics. This is the Oct. 1978 issue (vol. 1, no. 2) of BIBLICAL ETHICS. It is Greg Bahnsen’s article, “The Entire Bible, Our Standard Today.” If you remember Dr. Bahnsen, he was a talented and articulate speaker, and […]Read More Why Our Ethics Should Be ‘Biblical’ and Not Merely ‘New Testament’: Greg Bahnsen
Nathaniel Darnell has written a brief epistle of admonition in the form of a loving rebuke directed at his fellow theonomists. He tells them, in a word, Guys, don’t screw this up for the rest of us! Well, he didn’t exactly say it that way. But, he does remind us, in his recent post, that […]Read More Be Careful Not to Turn the Sword of God’s Law into a Machete
If you pull out a copy of R. J. Rushdoony’s seminal work, The Institutes of Biblical Law (vol. 1, especially)–that path-breaking, paradigm-shifting, pietism-slaying, antinomianism-busting book which essentially launched the Christian Reconstruction movement into orbit in 1973–and set it in front of your average evangelical, or even Reformed, Bible-believing Christian today, you’re liable to get one […]Read More So Why Do They Hate Rushdoony’s ‘Institutes of Biblical Law’ So Much?

I’ve “memorized” (meaning, I remembered them just long enough to pass an exam or a class!) plenty of acronyms in my day. Different subjects and disciplines. I’m sure you […]Read More An Easy Way to Remember the Basic Tenets of Christian Reconstructionism
Before I get to my review of Gary North’s Millennialism and Social Order, I wanted to pass along something that appeared in my e-mailbox this week. Right now, Chalcedon Foundation is offering a free copy, in PDF format, of R. J. Rushdoony’s Law and Liberty for subscribing to its newsletter. Here is the link for that […]Read More Free E-book: Law and Liberty
In Part II of his book, Backward, Christian Soldiers?, Gary North identifies who “The Enemy” is: atheistic secular humanism. In chapter 6, he reminds us that it’s “1984 [when he wrote the book–PR] not 1948”, meaning that we can’t solve our cultural and moral problems simply by turning the clock backwards to insulate ourselves (the […]Read More Backward, Christian Soldiers? (Book Review, Part 2)
