Christian Nationalism: The False View of Civil Government on Which It Rests

Jan 13, 2023

Christian nationalism arises out of justification for civil government and civil liberty grounded in bad theology. David uses Scripture and Abraham Kuyper to explain how a current Christian publication on this subject rests more on Rousseau’s contract theory of just government than on what the Bible says about God.

Christian Nationalism—What Gave Rise to It?

Jan 6, 2023

David begins a new series looking at the intersection of Christianity and the love of one’s country (nation). In this introduction to the series, David posits that ‘Christian nationalism’ and cancel culture are two sides of the same coin—the non-Christian contract theory of civil government espoused by Jean Jacque Rousseau in “The Social Contract” (1762). Beginning today you will begin to learn how Rousseau replaced Christianity in both church and culture and the disastrous fruit is has produced in our nation.

Bad Theology Applied to Pulpit and Politics

Dec 30, 2022

David ends the year with a little help from Alister Begg, Choc Knox Unplugged, and Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance. With their aid, David explains how subjective theology neuters the gospel and brings about a “Christian politic” that smacks more of polytheism than Christianity.

Why Christianity Has Rendered Itself Irrelevant

Dec 16, 2022

Christianity is no longer relevant to civil law and government. Many Christians want it to be or become relevant again. Today David uses Abraham Kuyper to explain why Christianity has made itself irrelevant. Without that understanding, we will have no clue why it will remain irrelevant despite all our Christian political action.

Christians Who Destroy Christianity Trying to Protect It

Dec 8, 2022

In today’s episode David will explain why leading evangelicals, in the name of protecting religion, presumably Christianity, are instead destroying it. The distinction between objective and subjective Christianity was on full display in the letter submitted to two United States Senators by Presbyterian minister, Dr. Kim Park, president of the National Association of Evangelicals regarding the Respect for Marriage Act.

Is Your Politics “Theocentric”?

Dec 2, 2022

What is a theocentric worldview? What is a theocentric view of law and civil government? Today David will explain what it is, what happened last week that exposed some of his non-Theocentric thinking, and what effect theocentric thinking should have on the way we look at politics.

Building Blocks—A Necessary Perspective

Nov 25, 2022

Today David explains how Psalm 37:1-5 applies when things are going wrong all around us. It provides the necessary perspective for those who see the need to restore what few people even know they have lost, the Western Legal Tradition.

Building Blocks—Are Christians Allying Themselves with ‘Deeds of Darkness’?

Nov 17, 2022

The Apostle Paul says Christians are not to “have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness,” but are to “expose them.” Yet, when it comes to legislation being filed around the country opposing “gender affirming care” for minors, many Christians are being tempted to join those whose worldview is darkness and, therefore, ultimately unfruitful. David exposes the “dark” worldview to which many are falling prey by using observations by J. Gresham Machen taken from Christianity and Liberalism.

Building Blocks—Where Does Science “Fit” Today in Law and Policy

Nov 11, 2022

Last week we learned how common law is rooted in a Biblical cosmology. Today David uses excerpts from interviews with Jeff Shafer and legislation being filed around the country pertaining to transgenderism to explain why science not only can be of no real help on this legal issue, but how its current use is undermining law and parental rights in particular.

Building Blocks—The ‘Nature of Law’ We Once Believed

Nov 4, 2022

In June, the United States Supreme Court decided a 2nd Amendment controversy and reversed Roe v. Wade citing William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England as authority. After you listen, you will be astounded to learn how much the cosmology of Genesis Chapters 1 through 3 informed Blackstone’s description of the nature of law. You will know what even most Christian lawyers don’t know about law.
