Modern Presbyterianism and the Destruction of the Principle of Plurality of Elders

It wasn’t until very recently that some Presbyterians in the US started re-discovering their rich history of involvement in the formation and the founding of America, as we know her today—or as is the common perception of what she was supposed to be, originally. That rich history of Presbyterian initiative, involvement, and leadership in the […]

Terrorism: Biblical Analysis and Solutions

You are not to say, “It is a conspiracy!” in regard to all that this people call a conspiracy, and you are not to fear what they fear or be in dread of it. It is the LORD of hosts whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, and He shall […]

Lew Rockwell on Immigration: The Mild Statism of Secular Libertarianism

Few things are more commonly misunderstood than the nature and meaning of theocracy. It is commonly assumed to be a dictatorial rule by self-appointed men who claim to rule for God. In reality, theocracy in Biblical law is the closest thing to a radical libertarianism that can be had.1 These words by Rushdoony have often […]

Christianity and Government: Jesus is King

Christians tend to be very opinionated about the laws their government creates (as we should be). Modern Christians have placed themselves into the unfortunate position of not being subject to God, and this has created a problem for them.

A “Post-Christian World” and a “Post-Mom Home”

No, we don’t live in a “post-Christian world.” A “post-Christian world” can not possibly exist. There has never been such a world; there will never be one. Stop using the phrase. It is bad theology. It is bad philosophy of history. It is bad evangelism. It is bad psychology. And it is false view of […]

Leithart’s Baptized Tower of Babel

In my opinion, church trials against the Federal Vision won’t have any success. The reason is, they never address the real problem in the theology of the Federal Vision movement.

The Superiority of Christian Reconstruction in the Mission Field

Covenantal Prosperity, not Pietism, is the Bible’s Answer to the Prosperity Gospel (II)

Part I – Part II If God says that He will bring judgment against a nation that refuses to submit to Him, it follows that we should be asking ourselves about what standard He uses to judge so that we may avoid it. Since John Piper doesn’t believe God’s historical covenantal sanctions applies to nations anymore, it […]

Missions in the Big Cities (2)

(Continued from here.) The Nuclear Family The Biblical model for the family is the nuclear family: a man, his wife, and their dependent children. No matter what situation the family is in, the Bible does not prescribe any additional covenantal authority over the husband; there is no concept of extended family, or a clan, as […]
