The Greatest Threat to the Church

By |2019-04-23T14:29:31-05:00April 23rd, 2019|Blog|

It's high time we deal with this. The greatest threat to the Church in America isn’t a political candidate for president, AOC, or even immigrants coming over the “border.” It's not Russia or climate control, or radical Islam. The greatest threat is, very simply, statism. But even that’s not the root, though we’re getting closer. The reason full-blown, fully metastasized Statism is the greatest threat is tied to the fact that it exists as a rival religion--a rival social order for all of life--because the Church has allowed its tentacles to grow and we've even perpetuated and participated in its growth. It's [...]

I am convinced that getting this paradigm right will absolutely equip you to tackle any issue you may face. The reason, of course, is because once we get a solid worldview in place, we can, as Paul says, “Destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey [...]

Understanding God’s Covenantal World

You can listen to this in podcast form over at Reconstructionist Radio. ------------ One of the most revolutionary ideas for me was understanding God’s covenants. What I don’t mean by that is doing fun little Sunday School studies on the Noahic Covenant, Abrahamic Covenant, Mosaic Covenant, Davidic Covenant and New Covenant. All of those, like a jigsaw puzzle, fit together to form what Reformed theologians have taught for centuries, the covenant of grace.
