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.

The Two-Kingdoms Doctrine’s Schizophrenic Philosophy of History

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision on sodomite “marriage” my Facebook news feed was filled with quite a few statements by known and unknown, important and unimportant persons and institutions who wanted to inform the world what they thought of it.

“You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel” (Matt. 23:24). The common saying, “Best is the enemy of better,” has its inverted version in the mission field, known by heart by all who have ever attempted to do the work of a missionary: “Better is the enemy of best.” Translated in […]
