From Reconstructionist Radio’s Instagram service:

“When men come to conclusions that are also the conclusions of the Bible, we should use their discoveries. These discoveries are our property, not theirs. God owns the world; the devil owns nothing.” – Gary North


“…next time, when a sheriff claims he is pro second amendment, ask him if he believes the amendment allows the American peopleto to shoot cops who try o exercise tyrannical power. If he says ‘no’ or is unwilling to answer, he is a liar.” – Bojidar Marinov


For God will bring every act to judgment everything which is hidden, wheter it is good or evil. – Ecclesiastes 12:14


“If an idea, or a philosophy, or a political idea does not conform to scripture, it is therefore FALSE.” – Jason Garwood


“The whole system—in its conception, design, and practice—is corrupt and sinful. Christians should now be busy providing for their own futures, and creating private systems in their churches for those few who cannot really provide for themselves. The fact that they have not done so is testimony to their true faith: not faith in God, but the full faith and credit of the force of the U.S. government. ” – Dr. Joel McDurmon


” A younger generation of Chrstian activisits is in no mood to take seriously lame traditional excuses for not challenging humanist civilization in the name of biblical principles. These younger men are tired of being pushed around by God-haters.” – Gary North


“The real problem is, of course, the constituencies of these power-drunk maniacs have such emotional support for law enforcement that they will set aside every principle of limited government, localism, and true federalism, and rush headlong into further centralized power and money to support their pet issue. They’ll build a police state while calling it America. They’ll enslave us all while singing the land of the free. ”
– Dr. Joel McDurmon


“Do we have in our society men in uniforms who serve the government agaisnt a free state, men who have the executive power to enter our houses, or arrest us on the streets and seize our belongings?” – Bojidar Marinov


“We now live in a secular humanist theocracy. I want to change that to a government with God at it’s head.” – Gary Demar


This is obviously so: after all, Christians under secular rule are treated with a comparable level of contempt as Christians under Islamic rule.

Which means, there are idols that need toppling.


“The Law is given to the people saved by grace as their way of grace, to set forth the privilege and blessing of the covenant.” – R.J. Rushdoony


“Becausw God is God, the absolute lord and law-giver, fear of God is the essence of sanity and common sense.” – R.J. Rushdoony


Start where you are.
Use what you have.
Do what you can.


“The Primary Duty of Lesser Magistrates is Threefold: First, they are to oppose and resist any laws or edicts from the higher authority that contravene the law or Word of God. Second, they are to protect the person, liberty, and property of those who reside within their jurisdiction from any unjust or immoral actions by the higher authority. Third, they are not to implement any laws or decrees made by the higher authority that violate the Constitution, and if necessary, resist them.” – Matthew Trewhella


“The Law of God is a tool of dominion, a means of spiritual advancement, an the foundation of progress: personal, spiritual, intellectual, and cultural.” – Gary North


“No church “ghettos” are envisioned in the Bible, no passive expectations of the coming of Christ, no desperate spiritual defense to preserve one’s faith or church against the superior forces of the enemy besieging the church. An aggressive army of an advancing Kingdom, winning cultural victories for her King, is what history after the Incarnation is all about.” – Bojidar Marinov


“A man with God is always in the majority.” – John Knox


If your life is marked by a preoccupation with your advancement in this world rather than the advancement of the Kingdom of God, there is something terribly wrong.” – Paul Washer


Advancing yourself “rather than” the Kingdom of God is lunacy, and a road to hell.

Advancing the Kingdom of God “and then” advancing yourself, by tying your future with the Kingdom, is the way to go!

God will dominate THIS world: why not stand with Him, on the winning side… and reap the benefits, as Abraham and Joshua and David did?

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. — Mathew 6:33

It’s too bad that so few Christians are willing to take God at His word, as it regards His world!

Don’t think “retreat”, think “advance!”


“We have time on our side; our opponents don’t. We have a sovereign God on our side; our opponents don’t. We cannot afford to be complacent; we can, however afford to be confident…” – Gary North


“Is it for our own self seeking, selfish desires, making us idolaters, worshipping self? Or do we seek to take dominion in every area of our lives in order to worship and glorify God our Creator? In order to take dominion we must be against the worldly system and for its redemption.”
– Jason Sanchez


Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this. – Isaiah 9:7


God’s creation and recreation unaugurate history: man is given an objective and a purpose. The world is to be subjected to man; for this goal to be realized, man must first subject himself to God. – R.J. Rushdoony


Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your’s; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your’s; And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s. – I Corinthians 3:21-23


“The Gospel is much larger than the salvation of individual souls, and its greatness encompasses the whole world.” – Bojidar Marinov


“We always must remeber that as theonomists we are numerically insignificant. And so, we must redouble our energies as doers. The Kingdom of Christ will not be advanced by winning debates or arguements on Facebook.” – Bill Evans


Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. – Proverbs 14:34


“The future is as bright as the promises of God.” – Adoniram Judson


“Patriotism..especially for the christian has to do with honoring God’s law, His sovereign lordship and His purpose for a nation.” – Russell Traweek


“To control the future requires the control of education and of the child. Hence, for Christians to tolerate statist education, or to allow their children to be trained thereby, means to renounce power in society, to renounce their children, and to deny Christ’s Lordship over all of life.” – R.J. Rushdoony


Christians have proven quite good in renouncing their powering society, don’t you say?

If you don’t like it, if you weary of being spat upon, I suggest that you change it.

Starting with your children’s education.


“The public school system hasn’t failed, it has succeeded in it’s goal.”
– Bill Evans


“The Christian life is not about some religious experience that you have but, it’s about total life transformation. A life lived in submission to Almighty God.” – Paul Abshire


“They who love any thing better than Christ are not worthy of Him.”
– James Renwick


“The Book of Revelation is not about the Second Coming of Christ. It is about the destruction of Israel and Christ’s victory over his enemies in the establishment of The New Covenant Temple.” – David Chilton


“The Olivet Discourse is not about the second coming of Christ. It is a prophecy of the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70.” – David Chilton


“If the churches are lax in respect to The Law will not people follow suit?” – R.J. Rushdoony


The Kingdom of God

God’s creation managed by God’s people filled with God’s Spirit and led by God’s Word, faithfully porclaiming and applying the crown rights of King Jesus on His terms and on His schedule in every realm of His creation, all by His grace and all for His glory. – Scott Alan Buss


“One day America and all its presidents will be a footnote in history, but the kingdom of Jesus will never end.” – John Piper


And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. – Isaiah 2:4


Q: “How do we impact pietistic, apathetic, antinomian churches?”
– Bill Evans

A: “You don’t… you start new ones.”
– Paul MIchael Raymond


“It’s not that the attacks of Hell won’t prevail against the gates of The Church, it’s not that The Church is on defense, but it’s The Church on offense knocking down the gates of Hell.” – Joseph Randall Spurgeon


“The new name for racism is kinism… any denigrating, belittling The Image of God in a human being is a belittling and blaspheming of God.” – Dr. Joe Morecraft III


“This world is beautiful but badly broken… And like every good story, there willl be an ending. I love the world as it is because I love what it willl be.” – N.D. Wilson


As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. – Isaiah 3:12


If we begin with the premise that God is wise and just, even when we can not understand Him, we may do badly in the sight of men, but we will be blessed by God.” – Andrea Schwartz


“This is God’s world, not Satan’s. Christians are the lawful heirs, not non-Christians.” – Gary North


“All four of your tires can blow out by yourself, 20 miles out in the desert, and you still have an audience. How you respond to that moment is witnessed by the Triune audience. The God who spoke all of that scene and is now saying ‘Show me faithfulness’, because all of it comes from Him.” – N.D. Wilson


“Life is rarely easy, but, with Christ our King, it is always good.”
– R.J. Rushdonny


“Conversely, when couples eagerly antcipate God’s blessing of children and steward these lives into obedient service, they will receive the mercy unto thousands of them that keep the commandments of God. This is how the Kingdom is forwarded.” – Andrea Schwartz


“In regard to the Old Testament law, the New Covenant surpasses the Old Covenant in glory, power, and finality (thus reinforcing former duties). The New Covenant also supersedes the Old Covenant shadows, thereby changing the application of sacrificial, purity, and “separation” principles, redefining the people of God, and altering the significance of the promised land.” – Greg Bahnsen


“We rely on the Providence of God, not the pragmatism of man. Abolitionists do not trust in war-horses or chariots. We trust in the spiritual means and methods God has given to us in His Word.” – www.abolishhumanabortion.com


“Often we read history as atheists or Deists, rather than as Christians. To read of events without observing the hand of God in them, is to read as atheists: to read, and not observe how all events conduce to carry on the work of redemption, is to read as Deists.” – John Brown of Haddington


“We should presume that Old Testament standing laws continue to be morally binding in the New Testament, unless they are rescinded or modified by further revelation. ” – Greg Bahnsen


Woe to those who enact evil statutes And to those who constantly record unjust decisions – Isaiah 10:1


“We strive to bring the truth revealed in God’s Word into conflict with the worldly wisdom of man. Rather than leaving the Bible out of our engagements, we are determined to that it should be the foundation for everything that we do.”- www.abolishhumanabortion.com


“IV. Our obligation to keep the law of God cannot be judged by any extrascriptural standard, such as whether its specific re- quirements (when properly interpreted) are congenial to past tra- ditions or modern feelings and practices. ” – Greg Bahnsem


“Every abortion clinic should have a sign over the door that says ‘Open by permission of the churches in this area.'” – Francis Schaffer


“III. The word of the Lord is the sole, supreme, and unchallengeable standard for the actions and attitudes of all men in all areas of life; this word naturally includes God’s moral directives (law).” – Greg Bahsen


“II. Since the Fall it has always been unlawful to use the law of God in hopes of establishing one’s own personal merit and
justification, in contrast or complement to salvation by way of promise and faith; commitment to obedience is but the lifestyle of faith, a token ofgratitude for God’s redeeming grace.” – Greg Bahnsen


“l. The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are, in part and in whole, a verbal revelation from God through the words of men, being infallibly true regarding all that they teach on any subject.” – Greg Bahnsen


He shall have dominion also from sea to sea. And from the river unto the ends of the earth. – Psalm 72:8


“You can’t beat something with nothing.” – Gary North
