Religious Toleration & the End of Morality

Nearly every social commentator appeals to the conservative Christian community to be tolerant of other religious traditions. After all, we live in a religiously pluralistic society. The assumption is that religion is a benign choice, little different from picking one car model over another.

The Californication of the ObamaNation

While most people think they were casting their vote on Tuesday for political reasons, they were actually voting for cultural reasons. Although election seasons always spawn heavy words and light action, rarely have both campaigns offered so very little policy and so very much empty rhetoric. It goes to show that every rule has an […]

Life on the Reservation

While I was eating lunch on Election Day 2008, I was reading an article written by Michael McVicar titled “‘First Owyhee and Then the World’: The Early Ministry of R. J. Rushdoony” that was published in the November/December 2008 issue of Faith for All of Life, a publication of the Chalcedon Foundation. As the title […]

Barack Obama, Fabian Socialist

Barack Obama is a Fabian socialist. I should know; I was raised by one. My Grandfather worked as a union machinist for Ingersoll Rand during the day. In the evenings he tended bar and read books. After his funeral, I went back home and started working my way through his library, starting with T.W. Arnold’s […]

Don’t Pay Attention to Newspaper Headlines

The newspaper and news sources in general can be depressing reading these days. No matter who wins tomorrow’s election, America and the world are in for uncertain times. Instead of ruminating over the negative possibilities, Christians should see what will come as opportunities. It’s in uncertain times that Jesus entered the world. Israel was a captive nation with no political power.

Postmillennial Suffering

To defeat Satan is to expose his lies to the truth—to unmask him. We see lots of unmaskings in the Bible. Many of these use the saints as bait. The true natures of Pharaoh, of Job’s accusers, and of Haman and the enemies of God in Esther were all exposed when God’s people became weak.

The Word Became Flesh

As promised, we are continuing our look at Andy Crouch’s new book, Culture Making. Although I made the statement last week that I believe Crouch’s book is probably the most important contribution to the cultural debate from a Christian perspective in a long time, this does not mean that it is without its weaknesses.

AV Says, Apples. Are You Saying Oranges?

The newness of blogging means it’s still a novelty. Newcomers like it for many reasons and that’s fine. But, it’s also worth questioning what the long-range potential of blogs will be when it comes to advancing the Christian culture transformation strategy that motivates American Vision. In lives already over-clogged with internet info, digesting boatloads of blogs (and comments) can be daunting, so part of my purpose here is a plea to readers to ponder before commenting—please!
