    Papal Absolutism

    The key to understanding the political pretensions of the church of Rome lies in her understanding of herself as the one, holy, catholic and apostolic church headed by the pope who is not only the “Successor of Peter the Prince of the Apostles” and the “Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church”...

    Why a Monarchy is the best form of Government?

    In this short paper, I am going to give you my reason why I believe a monarchy is the best form of government over any other. In the Western world, we are taught that democracy is the best form of government and has in many ways been turned into an idol. If someone attacks the idea of democracy...

    New Reformed Translation on the Light of Nature

    The Westminster Confession speaks of “the light of nature” in several places (WCF 1.1; 1.6; 10.4; 20.4; 21.1).

    Reformed Resources on Political Theology

    How can politics be reformed according to the Word of God? Christians more than ever need to gain a more thorough understanding of what Christianity says about politics and law. To say that political theology has been neglected in modern times is an understatement. If it is of help, I have...

    What, if anything, should the state do about heresy?

    This is an issue which I have been wrestling with for quite a while. Obviously, no Reformed Protestant could possibly say that the government can make people Christians. Only God in His grace and mercy can do such a thing. Still, I'm wondering whether this precludes any role whatsoever for the...

    Christians, Politics, Voting, Oath of Office and Honesty

    Friends, For many years now I have been personally convicted that I could never, in good conscience, honestly take an oath of office and swear to uphold the laws of the land and the Constitution as they now stand. I shared this last week with a small group I lead on the gospel of Luke. I was...

    Evangelism Campaign

    Hello! As many of you know, our church has been doing little videos to bring attention to various Bible-related issues. It has been going fairly well. With our latest video, we are trying to get something bigger going; a nationwide push to evangelize our leaders, and call them to repentance...

    Isaiah 8 — Safe on a Rock

    This morning, my devotional reading landed in Isaiah 8, which promises that God is a sanctuary to those who fear him. The following is the fruit of my study today, and I hope it is of some use to you. Comments and questions are most welcome! The same post is more readably formated here. Safe on...

    Next Governor of Tennessee?

    As a Tennessee native I'm embarrassed about this! I guess I should at least take pride that anybody (and I MEAN ANYBODY) has a shot at the governor seat!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hvaeHllwtw

    Christianity and Anarchism: Compatible?

    First of all, I'm sorry my first post is such a long one. I know that there are some very smart people who contribute on this site - much smarter than myself. And as iron sharpens iron, I wanted to get a few shaves of iron against my political views of late. I have been a Republican, then...
