Thoughts on Kinism

This piece I wrote after meeting with a young man and his wife who have endeared themselves to us. Joshua will presently disagree with my argument here but possesses a very fine spirit. Moreover, he’s young and very courageous! The spirit of ‘political globalism’ much associated with ultra left wing progressivism has no place within […]

An Indictment against the Contemporary Evangelical & Reformed Churches

Notwithstanding much time and effort made over decades, Theonomists have failed to adjust the thinking of their brethren within the mainstream evangelical constituency.  They have generally rather, been scorned for having sought to ‘rock the boat’ and to ‘introduce disquiet’ into the various flocks. The time has come for a reluctant but necessary indictment of […]

That Pesky Reconstructionist

That pesky reconstructionist is quite a trial to me He sees within the Bible many things that I don’t see; He notices the slightest thing my Pastor overlooks And treasures like an antique vase his North and Bahnsen books. That pesky reconstructionist is getting on my nerves Too easily he spurns the idols modern Christians […]

A Catechism for Children – PPT

A Musical Catechism PowerPoint It’s big so it might take a moment to download! A few summers ago I crafted a Musical Catechism for Children.  I’ve had no reaction nor response.  But there is an urgent need for children to learn a ‘reformed’ catechism in order for them to comprehend the general outline of covenant […]

Summertime Musings

As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.” [Isaiah 3:12] “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his […]

Jesus’ hand is subduing Great and small; Earthly plans and all rulers Under His sway shall fall. One day we’ll look and see no more The crooked and deceitful Whore of […]
