Turning the World Upside Down

Turning the World Upside Down

Gary discusses the Christian worldview, how we got where we are today, and how we get back to being world-changers on today’s podcast. Christians are not told to take up arms to defend or advance the Christian faith. We are engaged in a war of ideas. The biblical image of war is designed to remind us that defending the faith is serious business (Acts 7:54-60; 12:2). We should not shy away fr [...]

Animal Behavior Is Not Our Moral Standard

Animal Behavior Is Not Our Moral Standard

President Joe Biden nominated a man to be his assistant secretary of Health and Human Services who thinks, dresses, goes by the name Rachel Levine and acts like he’s a real woman. Now USA Today has nominated him/her as “Woman of the Year.” The party of science is willing to ignore science when it needs to satisfy a voting contingency—the Alphabet People—and work to upend the moral world order. Whe [...]

Presuppositional Apologetics in Action

Presuppositional Apologetics in Action

Gary discusses the film Collision, the lead up to the event, and new video podcasts featuring much unused footage on today’s podcast. The difference between Douglas Wilson and Christopher Hitchens, despite any particular agreements on morality or art, puts them in irreconcilable positions which must be at war with the other. The positions that “God exists, and God governs nature,” and “There [...]

"Human Life Has Absolutely No Meaning"

"Human Life Has Absolutely No Meaning"

If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at the moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. — Attributed to Martin Luther Yuval Noah Harari is Jewish, an atheist, and a homosexual (these are relevant for what follows). He is an Isra [...]

Working for Earthly Objects Distant in Time

Working for Earthly Objects Distant in Time

John Nelson Darby, one of the founders of dispensational premillennialism and the pre-tribulational “rapture” of the church doctrine, the basis of The Late Great Planet Earth (1970) and the multi-volume Left Behind series, taught that “the imminent return of Christ ‘totally forbids all working for earthly objects distant in time.’”[1] Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths take [...]

Kuyper, North, and the Calvinistic Worldview

Kuyper, North, and the Calvinistic Worldview

Guest article by Uri Brito Gary North’s recent passing reminded me of the enormous capacity of certain men to produce so much in a lifetime. Of course, men can be productive beings on many fronts, but that productivity often stems from foundational theological stimuli that allow him to conform his thoughts after it. If such roots are stable and coherent, they can provide a rich motivation for crea [...]

The Bahnsen Trilogy

The Bahnsen Trilogy

On today’s podcast, Gary discuss presuppositional apologetics and Dr. Greg Bahnsen and the trio of his books recently published by American Vision. Biblical apologetics means “to offer a defense” and is practiced in different ways by Christians. Some Christian apologists try to appeal to skeptics by presenting a boatload of facts. With this evidential method, the claim is made that facts are [...]

We Must Do Our Own Homework

We Must Do Our Own Homework

When error comes, it always rides in on the wings of truth.[1] Nikita Khrushchev (1894–1971), the late Premier of the former Soviet Union, described a time in the Communist republic’s history when a wave of petty theft was sweeping through the government-owned plants. To curtail the stealing, guards were placed at factory entrances to watch the laborers as they entered and departed. At the Leningr [...]

The 1980 National Affairs Briefing Revisited

The 1980 National Affairs Briefing Revisited

The National Affairs Briefing Conference was held in Dallas, Texas, in August of 1980. Then-candidate Ronald Reagan was in attendance and delivered a speech. You can view and listen to Reagan’s speech here. Dr. North also spoke. The following article was written by Dr. North about the NABC. As you will see, little has changed… _____________________________ Guest article by Dr. Gary North [I [...]

The Thief and the Tyrant

The Thief and the Tyrant

A brief survey of the Bible and its principles will show that it has directives for all areas of life. Does this include civil govern­ment? Is God as concerned about the structure and principles of political systems as He is about families? Or has God left the area of political sys­tems for man to develop according to the needs of a particular era or to satisfy the desires of a particular people? [...]

The Bible is a Textbook on Life

The Bible is a Textbook on Life

You’ve heard people claim that the Bible is not a textbook on particular topics. While that’s generally true, it also depends on what is meant by “textbook.” The Bible is a book about all of life. Everything that it speaks of is useful and true for all times and all people. Humanity needs special revelation in order to see life from God’s perspective, rather than thro [...]

Grape Juice Christianity

Grape Juice Christianity

Over the weekend, I spoke at two churches on Christian worldview issues. Friday and Saturday Andrew Sandlin and I spoke at Church of the King on the topic “Kingdom Culture: Far as the Curse is Found.” On Sunday morning I spoke at Christian Fellowship Church on what I have titled “Exposing Grape Juice Christianity.” The title of Sunday’s message came to me after celebrating the Lord’s Supper with a [...]

The Bible’s Impact on Our World

The Bible’s Impact on Our World

An article in GQ magazine written by the editors declared that the Bible is one of 21 books that you don’t need to read. It’s 12th on the list and the description by Jesse Ball begins with the following comment: The Holy Bible is rated very highly by all the people who supposedly live by it but who in actuality have not read it. More people live by it that have not read it, and that’s the main r [...]

Revealing the Magic Tricks

Revealing the Magic Tricks

Were the miracles in the Bible tricks? Was Jesus an extraordinary stage magician? Did He pretend to raise people from the dead, walk on water, and feed thousands? Was Jesus like Jim Jones, using some of His followers to concoct an elaborate deception on the people to build a following of nationalist zealots to overthrow the Romans? Some people believe this, even though Jesus rejected any notion of [...]

Using ‘Democracy’ as a Political Weapon

Using ‘Democracy’ as a Political Weapon

Michael Tomasky, writing for the New Republic (January 10, 2022), called for bold political action: “In 2022, Democrats Must Put the GOP’s Threats to Democracy on the Ballot.” “Threats to Democracy”? Does he mean stacking the Supreme Court by adding more Leftist Justices because he does not like the conservatives on the court and allowing non-Citizens to vote? Does he mean canceling and censoring [...]

Do Christians Deny Science?

Do Christians Deny Science?

If a person rejects Christianity, he has not set himself free from the concept of faith. He has only transferred his faith to something or someone else. For Carl Sagan, the cosmos is god, a glorious accidental substitute for what he believed were ancient, pre-scientific beliefs about the deity and the origin and nature of the universe. The very idea of a personal God, in Sagan’s worldview, is simp [...]

The Conflict of Religions

The Conflict of Religions

God assures believers He will “abolish all rule and all authority and power” in opposition to His kingdom (1 Corinthians 15:24). While Satan rails against the church, God promises “the gates of Hades shall not overpower” it (Matthew 16:18). Jesus describes the church as a marching army, ready and able to move against the stationary gates of Hades. Satan and his minions are on the defensive as the [...]

The Kingdom is Growing

The Kingdom is Growing

2021 is about to end. It’s been interesting and productive. I had two bouts of cancer. My left kidney was removed in January and my prostate was removed in May. I’m not experiencing any ill effects. In fact, I participated in a Masters Track and Field meet in July in the shot put and won my age group in Georgia. Of course, it’s not that hard to do since there aren’t that many 70-year-olds who can [...]

The Rich Young Ruler and Social Justice

The Rich Young Ruler and Social Justice

Theologians virtually ignore the economic commentary in the Bible. In the few cases where it gets any attention, economic commentary in the Gospels and other New Testament writings tend to lapse into simplistic class warfare nostrums. Liberation theologians import Marxism wholesale (but they try to sell it retail) into theology. Academic historians of first Century Palestine/Judea have been pushin [...]

The Dark Night of the Soul

The Dark Night of the Soul

Most evangelicals tend to think in “words.” This is certainly understandable because of the Protestant focus on the Bible as the sole authority (sola Scriptura) and the Lutheran concept of the “priesthood of all believers.” When this is applied to storytelling and film, this primary focus on word over image ends up killing the spirit of the message in favor of trying too hard to make sure the mess [...]
