Episode 381: Year End Assessment and What Next

Year End Assessment Video at Rumble or YouTube  

My Year End Assessment is totally free forms. I have limited the notes here to highlights ofJanuary 6th Not what History Proves programs I have done over these 52 weeks of programing. Yet, generally speaking, I am focussing on the theme of Political Theology for this week.

Before I go further, there have been a couple individuals who have been faithful financial supporters of the program, as well as, a couple others that joined in with one time gifts. A warm Thank You.

Now, Let me summarize the past year and the one going forward:

Everything is theological. The question is what theology as ascribed to what god?

Murder Before Your EyesWith my summarization, I want to re-quote what I mentioned in the Christmas greeting from a Rev. Jasper Adams:

‘We find by examining its (Christianity’s) history, that, in rude ages, its influence has softened the savage and civilized the barbarian; while in polished ages and communities, it has accomplished the no less important end of communicating and preserving the moral and religious principle, which, among a cultivated people, is in peculiar danger of being extinguished amid the refinements, the gaiety, and the frivolous amusements incident to such a state of society.’ – 1833

As I always say: The Anti-federalists Got It Right, and they clearly predicted our present especially in their full understanding of the ramifications of those American sons of the enlightenment who argued for the Constitution of 1787. The Anti-federalists expected the pulpits to hold true to Christian Orthodoxy but knew full well that the humanism of the enlightenment and the theological shift to Universalism and Unitarianism would be the demise of Constitutionalism.

Episode 379: De Tocqueville On Christian Nationalism

De Tocqueville On Christian NationalismDe Tocqueville on Christian Nationalism

Video of De Tocqueville On Christian Nationalism at Rumble or YouTube

In so many ways, ‘Democracy in America was clearly De Tocqueville’s views regarding the principles of America and he makes many references to what many are debating what is called Christian Nationalism. For me, there is no debate but only ignorance of our history and a corruption of theology.

Keep It Simple

Read De Tocqueville for yourself but to help you this week I will begin with this De Tocqueville quote from Book 1, Chapter 2:

‘It must not be imagined that the piety of the Puritans was of a merely speculative kind, or that it took no cognizance of the course of worldly affairs. Puritanism, as I have already remarked, was scarcely less a political than a religious doctrine. No sooner had the emigrants landed on the barren coast described by Nathaniel Morton than it was their first care to constitute a society, by passing the following Act:

“In the name of God. Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, etc., etc., Having undertaken for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian Faith, and the honour of our King and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; Do by these presents solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politick, for our better ordering and preservation, and furtherance of the ends aforesaid: and by virtue hereof do enact, constitute and frame such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the Colony: unto which we promise all due submission and obedience,” etc.

Episode 369: Economics 101 in Christian Nationalism

Video available at Rumble or YouTube.

Economics 101 in Christian Nationalism is not in the sphere of conversation for most individualsEconomics_101_Christian_Nationalism who call themselves Christians. How can a Christian think about or react to the nuances of economics? Well, in the 20th and now the 21st centuries, it has been what the experts from major institutions or think tanks have to say?

Constitution Economics Chair

A number of years ago I was the Chairperson of the Constitutional Economics group in a small think tank. My challenge was to look at U. S. economics from a foundational and Constitutional perspective. This required more than understanding the historical theories of 18th Century economics. This required looking at the personal lives of the various Founders from the pre-revolution period through the ratification of the Constitution and into the first fifty years of the Constitution being in effect.

The intent of this Constitutional Economics group was to compare modern economic policy to that which demanded the Constitutional Convention from the Annapolis Convention of 1786. With the development of a new nation, the mechanisms of commerce were critical not only at the States inter-relational needs but also from a local to international inter-relational needs.

One consideration that was already a failure at the inception of our new nation is what I missed at as a member of that think tank: What was a Biblical view of economics? Although there was much pulpit peaching and discussions considering the question of ‘what was Liberty?’ – very little has been paid attention to the moral questions surrounding economics and business in general.

Episode 368: Christian Nationalism 7.0

Video for Christian Nationalism 7.0 at Rumble and YouTube 

Many articles and references have been showing up in my email regarding Christian Nationalism. IChristian Nationalism7.0 thought the article by John D. Wilsey titled ‘The Many Faces of Christian Nationalism’ is a nice walk through history on this area of Political Theology.

I titled this program Christian Nationalism 7.0 in consideration of the seven distinct sections that are time stamps in the American story of Christianity being the influencer in governing the nation as well as the source of Patriotism – love of country.

I do a quick analysis of the paper by Wilsey. I have two areas where I have some disagreement with him. Those being his analysis of Lincolnian Unionism and Wilsonian Idealism. I do not consider either of these to be representative of positive eras of Christian Nationalism but more of the sort that used Christian references to justify their progressivism. This is especially true with Woodrow Wilson and his side kick John Foster Dulles.

Italy – A Return to Christian Nationalism?

Just a side note, If you want to hear Christian Nationalism bubbling, go and read the speeches of the new Italian Prime Minister. She nails it. See the analysis by Doug Wilson and Tucker Carlson.

Episode 366: Reviewing Doug Wilson’s Primer on Christian Nationalism From the Mirrors of History

In preparation for this week, I was rereading ‘The Pulpit Of The American Revolution: Or, The Sermons Of The Period Of 1776, With A Historical Introduction, Notes, And Illustrations. By John Wingate Thornton, A.M.,’ and the Vlog of DougChristian Nationalism Wilson’s Primer on Christian Nationalism popped up on my video feed. Well, this really got my hair curled as I listened to Pastor Wilson echo the words of John Wingate Thornton’s Preface and Introduction to his work on these founding sermons.

I do not intend to do a frame by frame review of Doug Wilson’s Primer on Christian Nationalism but I do intend to take you through the mirrors of history regarding those reflections of then for the solutions of our present. I do expect that you shall review the Vlog of the Primer on Christian Nationalism after either listening to this programs podcast or watching the video.

Confessions and the Loss Guidance of Continuity

I had to take a short moment to comment on the references that were made in the Primer on Christian Nationalism regarding the American changes in the Westminster Confession. What I can attest to from having participated in various denominations, including charismatic ones, is that there is a loss of guiding continuity in what was Christian participation in government.

To me, after a deep study of the Reformation, the comparison of the Westminster Confession by Pastor Wilson hits the nail on the head for bureaucrats and elected persons at any level of government. The following is what I believe is a very important, the missing principles that once were inculcated in our Founding era where in the Westminster Confession. For the greater part of modern Christianity — This is not taught or for that matter, any of the foundational Confessions are not taught. Continue reading

8-17-19 Samuel Langdon – Government Corrupted By Vice (1775)

Government Corrupted by Vice: Classmates

Samuel Langdon’s sermon Government Corrupted By Vice should be preached this very week. Sadly there are but very few in our modern times who have the courage or Orthodox Theology of a Samuel Langdon. Additionally, there is not the political, cultural support of a Johnathan Belcher to encourage such sermons.

No, instead of delivering Government Corrupted By Vice, the likes of leftists denominations in the National Council of Churches and those influential pastors in the Gospel Coalition are intent of accepting the national religion of ‘humanism’. The majority of the pulpits are reminiscent of the Tory pulpits during the Revolution. Continue reading
