False teachers are notoriously slippery. They will rarely answer direct questions with direct answers. They will often respond to exegesis and clear arguments with equivocations, emotionalism, and deflections. They will keep their teachings purposely vague in order to fool the gullible and naive. When their particular heresy is denounced by name, in a public relations […]Read more "A Brief Note on Defining Kinism"
There are anarchists (or voluntarists), such as myself, that hold to a voluntary view of civil government based off of Theonomic Law, reason, and utility. I, as an voluntarist and Theonomist (sometimes the same people but certainly not always), however, am not opposed to using and participating in institutions that currently do not match our […]Read more "Is Working With The State Serving Two Masters?"

We should consider first things first. Above all other things, we should be for Christ and His Kingdom.

Overly-simplistic statements such as “this angry person rejects authority” or “those ornery neo-Recons hate elders” are not only fallacious and […]Read more "Biblical Authority and the Negative Concept of Law"
There is an intense debate on ecclesiology going on in Reconstructionist circles, but the rhetoric seems more intense than the substance in many cases. In some ways this debate is similar to previous intramural debates within the community. In other ways it is not. One difference is that this time around we have platforms such […]Read more "Flaming Ecclesiological Straw Men"
Our first duty before God is the governance of our own selves. Our first duty is repentance of personal sins and to live holy in our daily lives. No amount of good parenting, discipling others in your local fellowship, or social activism makes up for secret personal sin, nor can we reasonably expect God to […]Read more "Foundations Are Laid First"
