Please Pause for This Post-Election by Lee Grady

After this bitterly divisive election, the Lord’s Prayer can reunite us. Please pray it often.Election 2012 was a bitter contest. As of Wednesday night—when my home state of Florida was still counting ballots—President Obama had 59.6 million votes compared to Mitt Romney’s 56.9 million. Democrats still control the Senate and Republicans still control the House. The political gridlock of the past four years is here to stay.We are a very, very divided nation. We are split on so many levels— … [Read more...]

Jesus Looks Beyond Politics by Lee Grady

 In today’s hot-headed presidential debate, it might be better for some of us to keep our mouths shut.People didn't vote in ancient Israel, nor did they put “KICK THE ROMANS OUT!” bumper stickers on their chariots. But there was plenty of political anger seething in Palestine, even without Fox News, CNN and MSNBC around to stir the pot.Jews especially abhorred tax-collectors, since (1) tax-collectors were usually thieves, and (2) they worked for the hated Roman Empire. Yet when … [Read more...]

The Political Illusion by R.J. Rushdoony

The Political IllusionBy Rev. R.J. Rushdoony – bioIt would be absurd to deny the importance of politics, but it is also very dangerous to over-rate it. one of the persistent problems of christendom has been the tendency to over-rate both church and state. In Numbers 18:21-26, we see that God orders the tithe to be paid, not to the priests but to the Levites, whose varied functions included education. Thus, worship per se received mainly a tithe of the tithe. At the same time, the civil t … [Read more...]

Wealth and Heirship and Envy by R.J. Rushdoony

By Rev. R.J. Rushdoony – bioOne of the most powerful, corrosive, and destructive forces in all of history is very much at work today in all the world: envy. Envy is, in terms of Biblical faith, very clearly a sin, but, in the modern age, it comes disguised as a virtue. The motive force in much of the equalitarianism of our day is not a sense of brotherhood but an envy which seeks to level all things. Envy also masks itself as a concern, very commonly, for social justice, and it lays claims to … [Read more...]

The Empire Has No Clothes by Richard Dahlstrom

The Empire Has No Clothes – raw truth precedes real hope –Pick your emperor: It's the same empireThe losses and damages characteristic of our present economy cannot be stopped, let alone restored, by “liberal” or “conservative” tweakings of corporate industrialism, against which the ancient imperatives of good care, homemaking, and frugality can have no standing. – Wendell BerryNow that Mitt Romney has effectively vanquished all other contenders, the real election posturing can … [Read more...]

The Changed Meaning of Liberty by Rev. R.J. Rushdoony

Words change their meanings, and people who assume that older meanings still prevail invite deception thereby. It is part of current Marxist ideology to give a new content and an alien meaning to such familiar words as peace, freedom, republic, law, and so on.New meanings precede revolutions, because the content of human hopes is altered dramatically, and the existing order finds that it cannot satisfy the new meanings. Before the French Revolution, the idea of liberty had taken on a new … [Read more...]

What the Debt Crisis Means for the American Church by Loren Sandford

By the time many of you receive this, Congress may have found a solution to the current debt-ceiling crisis. The immediate danger may be averted—temporarily.The real issue, however, isn't the budget, the debt ceiling or anything else, as much as it is a philosophical battle over the direction of the country. This is the root of the intransigence and increasing bitterness exhibited by both parties.People defend philosophies more vehemently than they do money. It's like defending one's r … [Read more...]
