History and Destiny

From Gary North’s Historiography and Destiny:

“History is written by the victors.”

You probably have read this statement. It’s true as far as it goes. But it misses the point. What is the point? The final victor. Who will be the final victor?

This is the issue of eschatology: the doctrine of the last things. Everyone has an eschatology, but most people don’t give it much thought.

Cosmic evolutionists have an eschatology: the heat death of the universe. In one phrase: “Eventually, everything will run out of gas.” Entropy is a one-way street to oblivion. The triumph of absolute zero will kill all life.

Then who will write history? No one. There will be no further history to write.

Then what is the meaning of life? There is none.

If you want more on this, read Chapter 2 of my book, Is the World Running Down? You can download the PDF for free here.

Conclusion: your concept of destiny shapes your concept of history: past, present, and future. Secondary conclusion: a society’s concept of destiny shapes its view of history: past, present, and future.

Reasonable so far? Let us continue.

The vast majority of Christians cringe and beg before Properly Credentialed Experts.

Seeing that these evolutionists have no goal, no vision, nothing but death as their desired goal, I see no reason why any believer should fear these dedicated losers. Or the dying society of losers they have chosen to create.The future does not belong to the antichrists… if only because they are so eager to jump into the grave!

The victors write the textbooks, but these offer ideal targets. A historian who believes that the prevailing Establishment will not maintain its control over the textbooks and media in the future has a chance to write a revisionist history of the nation. A revisionist history can serve as a weapon against the Establishment.

Indeed, without such pre-replacement histories, it is hard to recruit dedicated people who will commit to undermining the prevailing order.

Textbooks let the revolutionary identify the mistakes made by the defenders of the once-lost cause.

If you want to win, you have to learn, as well as work.

You also have to believe that victory is actually possible: that God will conquer; that — kicking and screaming all the way — the world will get better, as will the character of men.

(Yes, even uncompromising unbelievers. Sure, they loathe God in their heart of hearts, but they will suppress their murderous instincts and act the Christian, in order to get what the Christian gets, in time and on earth.

I’d much prefer the damned try to act Christian, then fully act Satanic. This keeps the level of theft and murder down, and God is even happy to bless those who secretly hate him, but officially obey his commands (while they carefully avoiding directly glorifying Jesus in any way or form).

Temporary blessings, yes.

Just for this life, yes.

But real blessings, all the same.)

If you think that men will only get worse and worse, then you definitely don’t know how most men on Earth behave and lived…

  • in 1950 (massive Communist tyrannies, anyone?),
  • or in 1900 (huge racist empires covering the entire world),
  • or in 1850 (actual slavery in America and much of the world, few children surviving infancy, incredible spiritual ignorance)

When claims are refuted by reality, ditch the claims!

History textbooks are written by victors. But they are also written by wanna-be victors.

If you expect your cause to win, you need textbooks that reflect and reinforce this expectation. You need to understand the way the world works in terms of your concept of cause and effect. You need evidence of the following: sovereignty, authority, law, historical sanctions, and time.

If you do not expect your cause to win, you will not read, let alone write, textbooks that reflect and reinforce your views. What is the use? The cost-benefit analysis comes down on the side of this dictum: “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.” This is the outlook of losers.

One thing about postmillenialists: they read books, they write books (and blogs, and make podcasts).

That’s because they expect to win. They plan to be the head, and not the tail.

“Has not God promised it? Therefore, it will happen!”

Postmillenialists expect that God-fearers and Covenant-keepers will rule, and Satan’s men will pretend to be Christians, and cower in ghettos, and struggle to bear children, and labour to pretend to be good within he numerous, expanding societies shaped and directed by God’s law and God’s will.

I have offered lists of revisionist history books we need. But we will not get them until a hard core of self-disciplined, self-funded historians gain a sense of destiny.

Wherever God has placed you, it’s time to get to work in completing the work He has set before you, to bring more and more (and more!) of the world under His dominion.

It’s time to work, and time to win.

MacArthur: Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

From MacArthur: wrong on politics, wrong on America, wrong on the Kingdom of God

Here’s the message from MacArthur, related through Friel’s show:

What happens in America politically has absolutely nothing to do with the kingdom of God. Whether America is Republican or Democrat, whether it is libertarian or socialist, whether it becomes a communist country or whether it becomes a dictatorship—what happens in America has absolutely nothing to do with the kingdom of God [his emphasis].

Note the stark dichotomy marked by the word “absolutely.”

Friel splices himself in to concur with this view: “No earthly kingdom has anything to do with the kingdom work that Jesus is doing.”

What is their rationalization for this view? Here’s is MacArthur’s scriptural support:

Jesus said to Pilate, ‘My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world my servants would fight.” We don’t fight on that level. I’ve got a lot of battles. None of them are political.

This verse is to Dispensational, premil, fundamentalists what “judge not” (Matt. 7:1) is to the unbeliever—that is, it is the most frequently abused verse related to the issue of the nature and scope of the kingdom of God. Thankfully, there is no need to write a new dissertation on it: Christian Reconstructionists already did this long ago, notably in a 1991 essay in the book Christian Reconstruction: What It Is and What It Isn’t (see p. 27 ff.).

I gave a lecture on this very topic, on this very essay actually, at GGC15. Listen to it, or read Gary North’s original version reproduced below. However you imbibe this, please learn it so that you will not be deceived and ruined by the misapplications of men like MacArthur and Friel.

(For more on what I mean about the danger of these guys’ position, see “Driscoll, MacArthur, Trump: who’s really to blame?”)

More misty-magic, pieistic Retreat from Reality….

And, Retreat from the Sacrifices Needed to OBEY JESUS CHRIST.

(One gets weary of these con artists.)

The article quotes North, below:

In sharp contrast, the Protestant Reformation was based on the idea that the institutional church must be defined much more narrowly than God’s world-encompassing kingdom. Protestants always argued that God’s kingdom is far wider in scope than the institutional church. So, from the Protestant viewpoint:

1) The kingdom is more than the church.

2) The church is less than the kingdom.

The Protestant doctrine, “every man a priest”—as Protestant an idea as there is—rests on the assumption that each Chris­ tian’s service is a holy calling, not just the ordained priest’s calling. Each Christian is supposed to serve as a full-time worker in God’s kingdom (Romans 12:1). What is this kingdom? It is the whole world of Christian service, and not just the institutional church.


This same definition of the church can also lead to the ghetto mentality and cultural isolation: it places nothing under Christianity, because the kingdom is narrowly defined as merely the institutional church. Because the institutional church is not authorized to control the State (correct), and because the kingdom is said to be identical to the church (incorrect), the kingdom of God is then redefined as having nothing to do with any­ thing that is not strictly ecclesiastical. This is our critic’s view of the kingdom.

And the Christian flees to his tiny, irrelevant ghetto…

So, pietists have sharply separated the kingdom of God (narrowly defined) from the world. Separating the institutional church from the world is necessary, but separating God’s kingdom from this world leads to the surrender of the world to Satan’s kingdom. Thus, it is never a question of “earthly kingdom vs. no earthly kingdom”; it is always a question of whose earthly kingdom, God’s or Satan’s?


To deny that God’s kingdom extends to the earth in history—the here and now—is necessarily to assert that Satan’s kingdom is legitimate, at least until Jesus comes again. But Satan’s kingdom is not legitimate, and Christians should do whatever they can to roll it back. Rolling back Satan’s earthly kingdom means rolling forward Christ’s earthly kingdom.

Satan rightfully owns nothing.

Jesus Christ and His Crown Rights covers Everything, so King Jesus Rightfully Owns ALL

Not in some distant, far away future, but Right Here, Right Now.

All Christians admit that God’s principles can be used to reform the individual. They also understand that if this is the case, then the family can be reformed according to God’s Word. Next, the church is capable of restoration. But then they stop. Mention the State, and they say, “No; nothing can be done to restore the State. The State is inherently, permanently satanic. It is a waste of time to work to heal the State.” The Christian Reconstructionist asks: Why not?

They never tell you why not. They never point to a passage in the Bible that tells you why the church and family can be healed by God’s Word and Spirit, but the State can’t be. Today, it is the unique message of Christian Reconstruction that civil government, like family government and church government, is under the Bible-revealed law of God and therefore is capable in principle of being reformed according to God’s law.

This means that God has given to the Christian community as a whole enormous responsibility throughout history. This God­given responsibility is far greater than merely preaching a gospel of exclusively personal salvation. The gospel we preach must apply to every area of life that has been fouled by sin and its effects. The church and individual Christian evangelists must preach the biblical gospel of comprehensive redemption, not just personal soul-winning.3 Wherever sin reigns, there the gospel must be at work, transforming and restoring. The only area of life outside of the reach of Spirit-empowered restoration is an area that was not affected by the fall of man. This, of course, means no area at all.

It’s long past time that Christians grabbed the Sword of Truth, and started driving these God-hating, credentialed, delusional half-wits back under the rocks they crawled from.

Denying Responsibility

There are millions of Christians today (and in the past) who have denied the obvious implications of such a view of God’s earthly kingdom. Nevertheless, very few of them have been ready to deny its theological premises. If you ask them this question—”What area of life today is not under the effects of sin?”—they give the proper answer: none. They give the same answer to the next question: “What area of sin-filled life will be outside of the comprehensive judgment of God at the final judgment?”

But when you ask them the obvious third question, they start squirming: “What area of life today is outside of the legitimate effects of the gospel in transforming evil into good, or spiritual death into life?” The answer is obviously the same—none—but to admit this, modern pietistic Christians would have to abandon their pietism.

What is pietism? Pietism preaches a limited salvation: “individual soul-only, family-only, church-only.” It rejects the very idea of the comprehensive redeeming power of the gospel, the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, and the comprehensive responsibility of Christians in history. In this rejection of the gospel’s political and judicial effects in history, the pietists agree entirely with modern humanists. There is a secret alliance be­tween them. Christian Reconstruction challenges this alliance.

This is why both Christians and humanists despise it.

I strongly advise Christian believers to avoid personally discovering for themselves the penalty for out-and-out treason against Christ Jesus and His Kingdom.

Or for secret alliances with Satan and his repugnant, repulsive, demonic representatives.

All faithful Christians must expand the Kingdom Jesus Christ came to establish. The Holy and Everlasting Kingdom of God, which we can, should, and must push forward with all of our body, soul, and spirit.

Until it, inescapably, covers the entire earth.

(This blog, Across the Stars, suggests that the Kingdom of God will cover the very stars as well! But even if the stars are forever out of reach of the Church in general, it is certainly under the authority of Christ the Creator, for He made the stars also!)

An Abbreviated Christian Reconstruction Reading List

From A Christian Reconstruction reading list:

A Christian leader recently approached me. He has grown acquainted for some time with Christian Reconstruction and Postmillennialism. He wants to know more. He is a pastor and teacher, and leader of a small Christian college. He asked me to provide him a reading list of Reconstructionist literature. I agreed to provide a sort of guided reading list.

Once I had written him back, finally, I realized this may be helpful to a good number of people—leaders and laymen, moms and homeschoolers alike. So, I am going to share a considerable part of what I wrote him.

(Keep in mind, a guided reading list of Christian Reconstruction is a different animal that the listing of “books that have most influenced me”—although some of the books on each list will be the same.)

I’m not going to cut-n-paste the entire webpage, much as I would like to.

But I will give some of the introductory books for my readers, right here and right now:

Special Grace, Common Grace

From Bojidar Marinov’s Special Grace, Common Grace, and the “Decay of Culture”
{My words in square brackets.]

The postmillennialist sees the decay of culture around him and is deeply disturbed, but feels it can and will ultimately turn around for the better.

I found these words in an Internet forum. I understand why they were said; I can see the motivation behind them. […]

But his statement about the “decay of culture” around us is unfortunately wrong. I say “unfortunately” not because I want to see “decay of culture” and am disappointed that there is none. To the contrary, I rejoice in the fact that in our day we are not experiencing a “decay of culture.” I say “unfortunately” because his correct eschatology is in conflict with his theology and his social theory and, specifically, with his view of culture and his definition of decay and growth. And this is because of his lack of understanding of a deeper theological issue that has seldom been discussed in Christian circles and remains largely an obscure issue to most Christian pastors and laymen. […]

The issue I am talking about is special grace v. common grace and the implications of this issue to our interpretation of history, of society, and of our modern culture. Quite a few of us are familiar with the idea of special grace; after all, that’s what all the sermons in our more conservative churches are all about: the special grace of God to His elect. However, not so many are aware of the concept of “common grace,” at least not of the term. […]

In general, though, there is misunderstanding about common grace and its function and nature. And there is misunderstanding about the relationship between special grace and common grace. And there is misunderstanding about the cultural implications of special grace and common grace. And consequently, there is misunderstanding about the growth of the Kingdom of God in history. And the above comment, I believe, about the “decay of culture,” is an example of this misunderstanding.

This article will try to explain the problem and its solutions. I rely heavily on Gary North’s Dominion and Common Grace: The Biblical Basis of Progress.1 The other book that is helpful in understanding my position is R. J. Rushdoony, The Biblical Philosophy of History.2 For other reading on the subject, readers can follow the bibliographies in these two books.

[A good discussion of special grace is snipped from the original, for interest of brevity. – AP]

Common Grace

But what about common grace? Does God give grace to the sinners as well?

The modern truncated version of the Gospel refuses to accept that the word “salvation” in the Bible applies to much more to just “getting to heaven.” Thus, common grace is seldom spoken about, and most theologians don’t even have such a concept in their vocabulary. But the Bible has a much broader view of God’s salvation:

For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers (1 Tim. 4:10).

It should be obvious why this verse requires that we expand our definition of salvation: There is no way that we call God a “Savior of all men,” which will include the unbelievers, if salvation is only “getting to heaven.” The verse agrees with other verses which call God the “Savior of the world” (John 3:16-17; 4:42; and others). Unless we want to fall into the heresy of unversalism (all men are saved irrespective of their faith), our definition of “salvation” must be broadened – not to make unsaved people saved but to include in “salvation” something of God’s work in history and on earth. God gives undeserved gifts to people (Is. 42:5), and those gifts are not the same as the gift of eternal salvation, nor the same as the gift of special favor and special revelation. God gives grace to all people, and this grace is called common grace. It is a gift which the unregenerate people receive, even if by the Law, God should send them directly to hell before they even receive their breathing, given the fact that all men are condemned in Adam. Human beings live, eat, breathe, love, work, make profit, have emotions, have property, experience aesthetic pleasures, do good works, etc. only because of God’s common grace to them. Men are not entitled to anything they have; it is all a gift from God.

Now, to make sure there is no misunderstanding, while the special grace of God is a sign of His favor to His elect, His common grace is not a grace given because of His favor. To the contrary, God’s common grace is given to unbelievers only for the purpose of condemning them even more in their rebellion. Similarly to the commandment in Prov. 25:21-22 to give food and water to your enemy, and this will be like “burning coals on his head,” God gives grace to the unbelievers for the same purpose. The Canaanites were given several extra generations of peaceful existence in the land not because God had any favor to them but only to allow them to fill their iniquity (Gen. 15:16). God gives the unregenerate enough rope to hang themselves.

[People think that God is kidding when He says in His word:

God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day. — Psalm 7:11, and
The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God. — Psalm 9:17

God isn’t kidding.]

But there is more. We saw above that special grace is not limited to individual salvation, that part of special grace is also special revelation – the Law of God – by which the regenerate are expected to live and build societies and cultures. In the same way, common grace is not limited to a person’s breathing and living and enjoying life; it includes implications for the civilization, just as special grace does. Special grace can build a civilization which is specifically based on God’s special revelation; common grace can build and preserve a civilization – for a while – based on God’s restraining hand. God restrains unbelievers in their sin, not letting them go to the logical end of their rebellion against Him. When fallen man is left to follow the dictates of his fallen heart, he and his society gradually lose all self-control and completely give themselves over to immorality, debauchery, laziness, passiveness, ignorance.

[And yes, such is the West today. It is increasingly a Satanic kingdom, due directly to the corruption of the Church.

But consider this: do lazy, brutal, immoral, passive, ignorant, cowardly, boring, and faithless societies inherit the earth? Are such cultures feared and dreaded?

Of course not! Satanic societies are failures! Sterile failures… bankrupt failures… defeated failures!

Why do Christians, filled with the Spirit of the Living God, fear dead men?]

Indeed, there are societies and people like that today. Modern anthropologists and sociologists call them “primitive” but in reality there is nothing “primitive” about them; to the contrary, these societies have developed their religious commitment against God to its logical end. But we also know that there are non-Christian societies today, and have been in the future, who build civilizations with all their good characteristics: law, order, industry, agriculture, commerce, technologies, art, literature, construction, roads, protection of property, families, etc. For a society to be able to develop these characteristics of a civilization, men in that society must be able to suppress the murderous instincts of their sinful hearts and cooperate with other people. This means they need to suppress their selfishness and serve others. But the sinful heart of man cannot produce willingness to such self-restraint. It is only the restraining hand of God which is responsible for the rise of the great civilizations in history. God gives common grace to cultures by making it impossible for the unregenerate to go to the logical end of their rebellion against Him, and thus they are able to do some good. Special grace builds a Christian civilization; common grace also builds civilizations that are better than the barbarism of the unrestrained human heart.

[More enlightening thoughts on common grace… and it’s dependence on special grace… snipped.]

[Here, the bolded words are stressed by me, not Marinov.]

While from the emotional standpoint of a modern Christian it may look as if it is disintegrating, or going down the drain economically, or being led to statism and socialism, the reality is that common grace is increasing in the United States and in the West in general. And it is increasing in the world in general. Economically, we live better and more prosperous lives than ever before, even if the economic growth is slowed down. In terms of safety, we are safer than ever before. Crime rates have gone down in both the US and Europe since the 1970s. Communism is dead meat, ideologically, and anyone who wants to promote it these days must use all kinds of verbal acrobatics in order to not sound hopelessly old-fashioned and irrelevant. The ideas of liberty are catching fire among the younger generation. The electronic media have slipped out of the control of the establishment gate-keepers. More and more, society is moving in favor of Biblical principles in every area of life, even if there is no significant religious revival in our modern world.5

This has all the characteristics of an increase in common grace. The world is not going back to barbarism and savagery. Yes, certain aspects of it may be. Or certain populations. Or certain regions. But in general, innovation, industry, future-orientation, technologies, law-abiding, liberty are increasingly accepted as prevalent social norms in the culture.

When there is increasing common grace, there can only be one reason: there is increasing special grace. We may not see it, but it is there. For the crumbs under the table to increase, there must be increasing loaves on the table. A spillover is possible only if there is increased quantity which spills over the brim. We have more converts. We have more knowledge about the Bible and what it says about righteousness and justice. We have more preaching, and it is more faithful to the Bible.

[So the Glorious Christian Leadership that has led us into these irreverent and powerless ghettos are being slowly squeezed out? Praise God Most High!

Now, let’s have some of those seminaries close.
And by “some”, I mean “all”: such unbiblical institutions need to be replaced by apprenticeships under the current pastor, just as the Biblical model demands!]

We have more Christian knowledge in every area of life than before – explicitly Christian, not baptized paganism supported by Biblical verses. We have more evangelism, and more missions. While there is a legitimate area for complaining about the current state of Christendom, God is still increasing His special grace to mankind, and as a result, we see increased common grace. When common grace increases, that is because special grace has increased. When special grace increases, there is no legitimate way to say that we see a “decay of culture.”

So stop whining. We haven’t got the foggiest idea what a “decay of culture” is. We, I mean, we in America.

The question then is: Don’t we see increased opposition from the unregenerate to our Christian faith, to the institutional churches; don’t we see increased opposition to family values, or to any kind of Christian values in the society? And isn’t this opposition a sign of the decay of our culture? In the past, there was no such opposition. Today, there is. It is becoming harder and harder to be a Christian these days.

In a previous article, A “Post-Christian World” and a “Post-Mom Home”, I explained why the challenges we are facing today cannot be taken to mean that the world is becoming post-Christian, or that there is some kind of decay in the culture. The world is actually getting better and better, because of God’s increased special grace, and therefore God’s increased common grace. The world is much safer, much more prosperous, and much more open to Christianity today than it was 40 years ago. There are many more resources today – produced by the increased special grace and the increased common grace – that we can use to advance the Gospel and build the Christendom. Any of us who goes back 40 or 100 years, will feel miserable in a world where he has to spend much of his time struggling to survive, without much time to learn and grow spiritually and intellectually. And the world was much worse back then ethically as well. It was full of many more thieves, brigands, tyrants, etc., than there are today.

But increased common grace in a culture will lead to increased resources and prosperity; and we should expect that increased resources and prosperity will eventually spill over into the hands of the enemies of God as well. The enemies of God are not able of themselves, based on their religious commitments, to produce such abundance of resources; abundance is the specific product of spreading of the Gospel around the world. But once they have access to more resources through the common grace of God, we should expect them to use those resources against God, or since God is not reachable, against the people of God. The classic example in the Bible is the Assyrian Empire which became mighty only because of Jonah: Jonah’s message gave them special revelation and special grace; that special grace produced common grace in the following generations which helped them build a successful empire, even if most people were unregenerate; and at the end, the successful empire fought against the people of God who had apostatized. (And at the end, God put an end to the common grace, but that’s a topic for another article.) Ultimately, it was Jonah’s missionary success which spelled the end of the Northern Kingdom of Israel by putting in the hands of Nineveh the religious tools which would make them powerful enough to defeat Israel. The same thing can be said about Rome: it was the common grace crumbs, the influence of the Law of Moses, which set Rome on the way to becoming a great civilization, later to building all the roads which spread the Gospel throughout the inhabited world; but that empire also used these resources to strike against Christianity. In the recent history of the world, the old pagan India was content to remain under the British dominion. It was the influence of European education, with its Christian worldview, which inspired a generation of young educated Indians to rebel against the British. The old pagan India was never defeated so decisively as when the British gave India independence: for the very notions of liberty and independence could not have come from the pagan religions in India. And today, in America, the only reason the enemies of Christianity have the resources to kick against the pricks is because of the Christendom which produced these resources in the first place. Van Til said that an unbeliever who rebels against God is like a child who has to sit in his father’s lap in order to slap him on the face. In the same way, to be successful against God, unbelievers are forced to accept God’s common grace and more and more imitate Christian ethics and wisdom. God must be laughing really hard at the scene. And we should be too.

The increased resistance of the enemies of Christianity is only proof that we are winning the cultural war. The success of the Gospel will inevitably make some unbelievers accept at least some of the truths of the Gospel only to become stronger and better prepared to oppose us. Such challenge is not a sign of the “decay of culture” but exactly the opposite: it is a sign that we are more successful in teaching and preaching God’s special revelation to the world.

The “decay of culture” is not decay. There is no decay; there is increased common grace which makes unbelievers better able to rebel. And there is a church that is lagging behind in its understanding of Christ’s Kingdom, of His special grace, of His common grace, and of the connection between the two. More maturity brings more responsibility: and more challenges. And more challenges is not decay.

It’s called growth.

May I add that half-hearted pseudo-conversions only mean a greater fall of the enemy, from a greater height.

Every empire of man will lie, broken and quiet, before the everlasting Kingdom of God.

And we won’t have to wait till some pie-in-the-sky future to see it happen.

Au contraire , we have seen it happen already before our eyes, in time and on earth.

Lawlessness… and the Remedy

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
— Matthew 7:15-23, NKJV

The entire Western Church has born a repulsive series of bad fruits, for at least a century, if not a good deal longer.

Look at all of the White Protestant nations: is there even one that is not fit for burning?

Not that I think that’s God’s way, today: “Population Replacement” is His actual approach. Much like the Canaanites, but with the rebellious population putting their own children to the sword, instead of a dangerous invader doing the deed.

Note to self:
God makes an exceedingly dangerous enemy.
Stay off of His enemy list!

But unlike the Canaanites, all these nations had genuinely Christian origins, and had actual churches that professed Christ.

And naturally, it is in the churches – not the academic colleges, not the labs, not the banks, not even the conspiratorial atheistic circles, but the churches – that is the source of the rot.

Who else backed Darwin, when even most scientists were brushing him off?

Who else led the Endless Retreat of the Kingdom of Christ, due to some “Two Kingdom” pietistic nonsense. As if God could redeem men and families, but tribes, nations, laws, and governments were somehow Just Too HARD!

And then came the innovation of Immanent Rapture. A great way to freeze the Church into impotence, fearful of the Antichrist and the Coming Tribulation, instead of actually doing the work assigned to her: filled with the Holy Spirit, fearing none but her Rightful Master, conquering the world by the powerful word of Christ.

Just as the early Christians tamed the Roman Empire, we should be taming the world!

“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” — Matthew 7:19, NKJV

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” — Matthew 7:21, NKJV

And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.” — Luke 12:47-48, NKJV

When I read these verses, I am struck with the Fear of the Lord.

I know that I must do more, and be more: not because of the loss of salvation (for that is guaranteed by Christ Himself), but by the rightful fear of wasting my life, wasting my time, in what does not profit Christ!

Christ does not look favourably, on those who waste His time; His resources; the power of His Name…

How does Christ see those who take His hard-won victories… and relentlessly labour to twist them into abject, craven, hollow defeats?

That’s something that I have no intention of finding out personally: and I hope you don’t care to find out, either!

I look at all the works of these highly educated pastors and priests and theologians… and I look at my society, and know how God has seen, weighed, judged the works and the words of these men.

Generations of these men.

By their fruits shall ye know them... and their rotten fruits foul the earth, and stink to heaven.


Once again, to Bojidar Marinov:

The revolution has already happened, in the last one century. It was the revolution that killed the real church – the church that was a covenant community, and was taking the world by storm. That was the revolution that brought to power in the church the same ministry-industrial complex of celebrities and professional fund-raisers that DeYoung is now part of. That ministry-industrial complex is the usurper; and DeYoung, as a part of it, is a usurper too. He needs to go. All of his buddies need to go. The pulpits must be purged of this illegal brood of vipers which has kept the church on milk and hot air – mostly hot air – for over 50 years. The fruit of that ministry-industrial complex is obvious in America in the last several decades: there’s barely an aspect of the American society that hasn’t been affected by the victorious march of neo-paganism. And that’s not because paganism is powerful. It is because the church members have been passive and incompetent and pessimistic and immature. And why are they so? Because of DeYoung’s institutional system. The fruit clearly reveals the root. There is no way that a true church would turn a previously Christian culture into a pagan culture. The true church does the other way around. When a system – like the one DeYoung defends – has absorbed billions of dollars only to produce defeat, then this system is a counterfeit church. It’s time for it to go. The people leaving it are only trying to stop the breakdown, not to cause one.

DeYoung’s system has only preached milk for decades. Yes, the same milk that the author of Hebrews tells us to leave behind and move on (Heb. 5:11-6:2). And what is DeYoung’s solution to the problems with people leaving his so-called “church”? More appreciation of the same milk.

It’s possible we no longer find joy in so great a salvation. It’s possible that our boredom has less to do with the church, its doctrines, or its poor leadership and more to do with our unwillingness to tolerate imperfection in others and our own coldness to the same old message about Christ’s death and resurrection.

In other words, people are leaving because they do not appreciate their milk anymore. No wonder. Those who have the Holy Spirit want to move on from being permanently excited about childish things to working as mature men. May be they want to do something about that message, not just hear about it from the pulpit and experience sweet meltdowns over it. When an institution continues offering only milk – in opposition to Hebrews 6:1-2 – it is clear that institution is not a church.

The fact that DeYoung only mentions in passim the need – possibly – for the “church” to change, shows very clearly he is not serious about anything. The judgment starts from the House of God (1 Pet. 4:17); and the teachers in the church receive a greater judgment (James 3:1). This clearly shows where God’s priorities are when we talk about change, correction, or judgment.

The lawless, diseased filth that now covered the West has its source in the Church.

The corrupt acts of the corrupt church leadership across the West has corrupted and poisoned this entire civilization.

But God will purge and clean His Bride.

Fear the Lord.

Bear the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Do the Will of God in Heaven, to Expand His Kingdom on Earth.

God has given you much: therefore, much is required of you. Do not shun this burden: take up your cross, as Christ commands. “No servant is higher than his Master.”

Let nothing hinder your obedience to Christ the King — who reigns and rules at this very moment, over the entirety of Earth and Heaven.

Fear the Lord, and not mere men.

Fear and obey the Lord… and so live!

Creationism Invades Europe

Creationism Invades Europe

An antiscience movement once limited mostly to the U.S.
is gaining ground on the eastern side of the Atlantic

I can hardly wait until creationism – which, as the basis of all scientific progress, insists that

  1. The universe is intelligently ordered, and
  2. Humanity is meant to uncover many (but not all) of the universe’s secrets

Is again the default position of all educated men.

Some feel that this is the work of centuries: while I respect that viewpoint, I suggest that it is too pessimistic. Take away the government funding, the public schools, and the official certification boards, and it won’t last a century.

(“Won’t last 75 years”, if you throw in the end of 95% of today’s guild-ridden, clique-dominated university system, replaced by various internet knowledge associations & networks.)

The enemy is being pressed back to his gates: let’s smash the gates of hell, and finish the job!

Covenant Media Foundation

Covenant Media Foundation is a distribution centre for a host of materials published by Dr. Greg Bahnsen, one of the ablest proponents of Christian Reconstruction and the return of Christendom.

As opposed to the evil incompetents we have placed over our civilization, in return for Free Stuff… to our loss, and our shame.

(Talk about “Selling your birthright for a mess of pottage!”)

Now, Covenant Media not only provides the books and mp3s of Bahnsen, but also a great range of educational material suitable for groups (the “Always Ready” series), more recent philosophical works (“How to be an Atheist”, Mitch Stokes), and the classics (The “Defense of the Faith” series by Van Til).

Good reading…

…but make sure that it is followed by good action!
