75 Questions Your Instructors Pray You Won’t Ask

By Gary North

Unless you’re “one in ten thousand” as Christians go, you’ve been misled. Maybe it hasn’t been deliberate on the part of your Bible teachers, but it’s true. In Christian college classrooms, pulpits, and Sunday schools throughout the land, people are being misinformed about Christianity, year after year.

What I’m talking about is humanism. People who think they are hearing “the good, old-time religion” are being indoctrinated by well-meaning (and sometimes not so well-meaning) teachers who are either outright humanists or who have been compromised by some of humanism’s most important doctrines.

The trouble is, very few people are willing to put their faith to the test. They really don’t want to think about the possibility that they’ve been misled. They don’t want to sit down and examine their beliefs in the light of what the Bible has to say. Christians pretend that they know what the Bible has to say, but they absolutely refuse to ask themselves (or anyone else) the key questions, and then search for the Bible’s answers.

What are these key questions? There are at least 75 of them. Actually, that’s only a beginning, but 75 are enough to prove to almost anyone who really believes that the Bible is God’s inspired Word that what he has been told the Bible teaches is false.

America’s Providential History

by Mark Beliles and Stephen McDowell

An examination of the the history of America from a Christian perspective. Since God is the author of history and He is Carrying out His plan in the earth through history, any view of the history of America, or any country, that ignores God is not true history. He is sovereign over His creation and “His Story” in the earth, and is at work in significant, and seemingly insignificant, events to accomplish His purposes for mankind. This is a providential view of history and was held by the vast majority of those people who founded the nation.

Backward Christian Soldiers

by Gary North

Are you tired of sitting in the back of humanism’s bus?

Jesus said to “Occupy till I come.” But if Christians don’t control the territory, they can’t occupy it. They get tossed out into cultural “outer darkness,” which is exactly what the secular humanists have done to Christians in the 20th century: in education, in the arts, in entertainment, in politics, and certainly in the mainline churches and seminaries. Today the humanists are “occupying.” But they won’t be for long. This book shows why.

Covenant Sequence in Leviticus and Deuteronomy

by James B. Jordan

In this path-breaking study, Jordan investigates the literary and theological structure of the books of Leiviticus and Deuteronomy. He shows that the organization of these two books, far from being random, is intimately related to the covenant God made with Israel at Mt. Sinai. The sacrifices and laws of uncleanness in Leviticus, for instance, form an extended commentary on the creation and fall of man, while the law section of Deuteronomy is a commentary on the Ten Commandments. A separate study of Leviticus 19 finds that chapter to consist of seventy laws, carefully arranged in a theological pattern. Presented as outlines studies, these essays are both an important contribution to the ongoing discussion of the covenant, and also useful Bible study aids for any serious Bible student.

Explicitly Christian Politics

edited by William O. Einwechter

Century-Old Principles for a New Century Since 1864 the National Reform Association has advocated an explicitly Christian approach to politics. In this book the grand vision of politics of the National Reform Association is explained for a new generation of Christian activists. It is a grand vision because it is based on the truth of the mediatorial reign of Jesus Christ over the nations of the earth, and it seeks to implement the will of Christ for civil government as revealed in Scripture.

Christians who are tired of the compromise of evangelicals in the political sphere will find this book to be a wonderful breath of fresh air. Here is a vision for politics that the faithful servant of our Lord Jesus Christ can get excited about. The days of retreat for Christians in the political sphere are about to end, and Explicitly Christian Politics points the way!

The subjects addressed in the book are:

A Background of the National Reform Association, The Failure of Retreatist Strategies, The Crown Rights of Jesus Christ, The Judgment Is God’s, Christ’s Kingship in Contemporary Politics, National Confession Primer, The Orthodox Foundations of Liberty, The Great Law-Book of the Nation, The Free Market, Educational Reform in America, Sentimentalism in Politics, Making this Political Mess Right.

In His providence, the Lord has preserved the National Reform Association for the last 133 years so that it may unfurl once again in these dark days the banner of Christ the King, and under that banner point the way to the blessings of liberty, peace, and prosperity that are found in national submission to Jesus Christ.

Kinsey, Sex and Fraud

by Judith Reisman et al.

This book describes the allegedly scientific research of Alfred Kinsey and colleagues, which shaped western society’s beliefs and understanding of the nature of human sexuality. Kinsey’s unchallenged conclusions are taught at every level of education– elementary school, high school, and college–and quoted in textbooks as undisputed truth.

Kinsey’s research involved illegal experimentation on several hundred children. The survey was based on a non-representative group of Americans, including hundreds of sex offenders, prostitutes, prison inmates, and exhibitionists. Because of this fraudulent research, Kinsey’s brand of social “science” has led to one of the greatest hypocrisies of all time: the pretense of providing safe-sex instructions to children while in reality advancing Kinsey’s agenda, including indulgence in high-risk lifestyles and behaviors.

This Book Reveals:

* How the most famous sex research project in history was fraudulent.
* How official sex education doctrine in the United States is based on that research.
* How Kinsey’s data came from pedophiles and sex offenders stimulating children (as young as 2 months) orally and manually for up to 24 hours at a time This rivals the Nazi experiments described at Nuremberg.

Millenialism And Social Theory

by Gary North

This book presents the case for the Bible as the sole foundation of valid social theory. Every social theory has a theory of sovereignty, authority, law, rewards and punishments. The Bible offers a unique version of such a theory. But modern Christians have rejected the idea of cultural progress. They also reject the idea of God’s sanctions in history. Finally they reject biblical law. They have therefore been forced to import humanist substitutes for these three crucial concepts. Very few of them have recognized what they have done, or had done to them, in the name of Christianity. This book shows exactly what has to be done, and why it has distorted the Church’s efforts of evangelism.

Political Polytheism: The Myth Of Neutrality

by Gary North

No political order can be religiously neutral, and the modern political order in the United States and other Western nations, called “pluralism,” is in reality polytheism. As in the ancient world, polytheists are offended at those who claim that there is only one God, and this is why orthodox Christianity is increasingly under assault in the United States and throughout the Western world. In this book, Gary North brings his many years of theological and historical research to bear on the question of how this polytheistic state of affairs came about, and what must be done about it. In a powerful argument, sure to be controversial, North points a finger at the framers of the Constitution of the United States, who self-consciously broke with 1000 + years of Western heritage by not referring to the Trinity and to Christ as King. This was the hole in the dike, North contends, through which modern secularism has poured. No one concerned about the state of the American nations can afford to ignore this book.

The Blood Of The Moon

by George Grant.

The conflict between Islam and the West existed long before the destruction of the World Trade Center and the other events that recently touched America. It goes back hundreds, even thousands, of years. Yet the struggle is upon us now as never before. In this well-reasoned, accessible book, Middle East expert George Grant answers the troubling questions on many believers’ minds. Who are the followers of Islam, and what do they believe? What could have motivated those who carried out the acts of terror on September 11? Why has there been tension between Islam and the West for centuries? What are the true meanings of terms such as Ji’had, Intifada, and Dhimma? And is there any hope for peace? The call upon believers now-as always-is to prepare and equip ourselves so that we may stand fast. The Blood of the Moon will help readers better understand the history of Islam and its struggle with the Western world, as well as how Christians can share the message of salvation through Jesus Christ with the followers of Allah.

The Calvinistic Concept Of Culture

by Henry Van Til

How should a Christian Live in a secular world?

This classic looks at the relationship between religion and culture from a Reformed perspective.

Van Til uses the term culture to designate “that activity of man, the image beare of God, by which he fulfills the creation mandate to cultivate the earth, to have dominion over it, and to subdue it.” Culture, therefore, is removed from a totally secular context, is placed in the arena of Christian activity and influence, and is constructively viewed from a biblical perspective. The text explores both the historic development and the contemporary implications of the Calvinistic framework of culture and theology.

The Dominion Covenant Vol. I Genesis

by Gary North

What does the Bible require of men in the area of economics and business? What does the Bible have to say about economic theory? Does it teach the free market, or socialism, or a mixture of the two, or something completely different? Is there rally an exclusively Christian approach to economics? Modern economic thought is humanistic to the core, whether conservative, libertarian, Keynesian, Marxist, or whatever.

All schools of thought begin with the presupposition that man is the measure of all things, and man’s mind is capable, apart from biblical revelation to interpret the world correctly. This is why modern economic theory is in the process of disintegration.

This book sets forth the biblical foundations of economics. It offers the basis of total reconstruction of economic theory and practice. It specifically abandons the universal presupposition of all modern schools of economics: Darwinian evolution. Economics must begin with the doctrine of creation. The Dominion Covenant: Genesis represents a self-conscious effort to re-think the oldest and most rigorous social science in terms of the doctrine of creation. Every social science requires such a reconstruction. The “baptized humanism” of the modern Christian college classroom must be abandoned by all those who take seriously God’s command that Christians go forth and subdue the earth (Genesis 1:28).

The Hoax Of Higher Criticism

by Gary North

The two most successful attacks on Christianity in the modern world have been biblical higher criticism and Darwinism. Both views stem from the same source: a view of man as a social creature who lives in an evolving society. Both views substitute a philosophy of autonomous historical process for the biblical philosophy of creation, fall, redemption, and final judgment.

Biblical higher criticism affects men’s choice of ethics. It especially affects their social ethics. What is seldom understood is that biblical higher criticism arose in England in the late seventeenth century as a reaction to the use of the Old Testament as a guide for civil law. Higher criticism was an important tool in the humanists’ war against Christian civilization. They won that phase of the battle. It has taken three centuries for even a handful of Christians to return once again to the Old Testament in search of social guidelines. This quest necessitates a rejection of the techniques of biblical higher criticism. Until Christians abandon higher criticism and its evolutionary social presuppositions (disguised as conclusions), they will remain in cultural bondage.

The Messianic Character Of American Education

by Rousas J. Rushdooney

Rushdoony’s study tells us an important part of American history: exactly what has public education been trying to accomplish? Before the 1830s and Horace Mann, no schools in the U.S. were state supported or state controlled. They were local, parent-teacher enterprises, supported without taxes, and taking care of all children. They were remarkably high in standard and were Christian. From Mann to the present, the state has used education to socialize the child. The school’s basic purpose, according to its own philosophers, is not education in the traditional sense of the 3 R’s. Instead, it is to promote ‘democracy’ and ‘equality,’ not in their legal or civic sense, but in terms of the engineering of a socialized citizenry. Public education became the means of creating a social order of the educator’s design. Such men saw themselves and the school in messianic terms. This book was instrumental in launching the Christian school and homeschool movements.

The Nature Of The American System

by Rousas J. Rushdooney

Originally published in 1965, these essays were a continuation of the author’s previous work, This Independent Republic, and examine the interpretations and concepts which have attempted to remake and rewrite America’s past and present. ‘The writing of history then, because man is neither autonomous, objective nor ultimately creative, is always in terms of a framework, a philosophical and ultimately religious framework in the mind of the historian. To the orthodox Christian, the shabby incarnations of the reigning historiographies are both absurd and offensive. They are idols, and he is forbidden to bow down to them and must indeed wage war against them.’

The Sensate Culture: Western Civilization; Between Chaos And Transformation

By Harold O.J. Brown

This book is a probing work grappling with the reasons so many moderns worship the sensuous, the material, the merely colossal — but still feel empty and shallow. Building on the work of the late Pitirim Sorokin, Harold Brown finds the roots of cultural disintegration in the abandonment of the spiritual dimension. The author shows how most societies have descended from spiritual values to a period like our own, when materialism and sensuality rule. The result will be not just apostasy, but revolution, and the collapse of civilization. However, this need not be inevitable. The profound connections The Sensate Culture makes between Christianity and culture are accessible to every thoughtful person who takes seriously the crises faced by a world spinning out of control.

Trial And Error

by George Grant

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is having a profound impact on America’s legal system. And because of that, the influence of the ACLU is being felt in every corner of our culture. Many of the battles this organization is fighting should be cause for alarm for anyone with a sense of national morality and justice. What is most sobering, however, is the ACLU’s stand on issues that effect you and your family.

Trial And Error contains true stories which chroniclethe way the ACLU has carried out these policies. True accounts that tell the real story.

In his familiar, thorough style, George Grant methodically uncovers the ACLU’s founding, strategy, and undeniable track record.

You may already think that you know something about this powerful organization. This book is guaranteed to reveal that you probably don’t know enough.

Unconditional Surrender

by Gary North

What does the Bible really say about God? About creation? About sin and judgment? About home and family? About politics and government? About wealth and poverty? About the last days? About the mission of the Church? Sadly, most Christians today cannot give anything better than fuzzy, imprecise answers to such questions. Neither can most pastors or theologians. Unconditional Surrender is designed to remedy that grave dilemma. It is a basic primer of the faith. In it, Dr. Gary North tells us what the Bible really says.

After reading this simple, yet profound, lively, yet, meaty book, perhaps the only questions left unanswered in your mind will be, “Am I willing to surrender to the claims of Christ and the commands of Christ? Will I follow Him unconditionally?”

Victory In Jesus: The Bright Hope of Postmillenialism

by Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen

We have just ended a century dominated by a multitude of failed prophecies from thise who looked to be raptured out of a collapsing world at any moment. The dawning of a new millenium is causing many in the church to pause and consider whether these discredited “prophets” should be hooted off the stage.

This book offers a sober and faithful examination of Scripture while clearly demonstrating that Christians have every reason to expect the victory of Jesus and the triumph of the Gospel as The Great Commission is fulfilled on earth.
