Hallelujah! There’s a newly formed organization and a new online resource out now that is dedicated to promoting biblical Reformed theology and the rich pastoral and exegetical legacy of the late Rev. David H. Chilton. It is aptly named the Rev. David Harold Chilton Center for Reformed Theology. I wanted to bring it to your […]Read More A New Resource for Studying Reformed Theology and the Works of David Chilton
Forgive me if I don’t seem to be enamored with the new “emerging” breed of Calvinists that has cropped up and become all the rage in Reformed and conservative evangelical circles during the past 7-10 years. And forgive me if I dismiss them as five-point evangelicals and ‘sovereign-grace antinomians.’ But, frankly, based on what I have seen […]Read More Is the ‘New Calvinism’ Really Calvinism–or Is It Just ‘Five-Point Evangelicalism’?
Someone on Gary North’s discussion forums this past week posted that he had recently “converted” to Christian Reconstructionism from premillennial dispensationalism. This, of course, now makes him a contrarian in almost every sense of the word. He said he is now the only member of his circle of family and friends to hold this position […]Read More You Can Lead a Horse to (Reconstructionist) Water, But You Can’t Make Him THINK It
Looking for a good book on how to reform the church? Here’s one to start with. This is a 28-year old volume published (1985) by the old Geneva Ministries of Tyler, Texas, called The Reconstruction of the Church, part of a series called Christianity and Civilization.

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?
Acronyms are helpful little things. Especially when you’re trying to remember the main ideas of a particular teaching or the basic tenets of a certain body of thought. 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
This article appeared in the London Guardian more than three years ago, but it seems to be making the rounds again online among Reformed and conservative readers. At least, that is how I came across it (a Facebook post by John Lofton!). This is good news for those of us on the Calvinist side of […]Read More Calvinist Renaissance in China: Everything’s Coming Up TULIPS!
