Birth of the King R. J. Rushdoony
by R. J. Rushdoony

The birth of a king has lost most of its meaning in our day, because the few kings remaining are mainly figureheads. In earlier days, it was, however, a momentous event. Whenever a son was born to a king, the entire kingdom celebrated with a joy our holidays today do not have.

Why was the birth of a king's son so great an event to the poorest man of the realm, and so great a cause for rejoicing? It meant, very simply, that a protector and defender was born, someone who in the days ahead would provide the leadership, unifying force, and strength to repel all enemies, suppress criminals within the realm, and enforce justice. A kingdom without an heir to the throne had an uncertain future. Men being sinners, the kingdom would face internal and external troubles if no king reigned to enforce justice. The succession being uncertain, the kingdom would risk civil war.

The Increase of His Government and Peace
by R. J. Rushdoony

One of the most important prophecies concerning the birth of our Lord is in Isaiah 9:6-7. Christ, eight centuries before His coming, is hailed as the “Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace,” and it is declared that “the government shall be upon his shoulder.” This is the first great declaration concerning Christ and all government: the ultimate and absolute government of all things shall belong to Christ. The second great declaration is that “[o]f the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end.” Christ, coming into a sinful and rebellious world to establish His dominion as Lord and Savior, will in the face of all enmity and warfare increase His power, government, and peace.

Next, we are told exactly how this shall be done: He shall “establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever,” or, as the Berkeley Version translates it, “[I]t is firmly established and supported in justice and righteousness from now on and forever.”

Christ came into the world as the great prophet, priest, and king. As prophet, He speaks for God; as priest, He is man’s savior and advocate with the Father; as king, He rules over the world.

William J MurrayWilliam J Murray speaks on Sharia at Nashville Conference

It can't happen here — or can it?

As chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition I have been a part of numerous fact finding missions all over the world. Some of these have been with congressional staff, others with former congressmen and governors to witness religious persecution first hand. As part of my duties I once had dinner with President Omar Hassan Ahmad Al-Bashir, the mass murderer who has slaughtered tens of thousands of Christians in the Sudan. As I left his home I sensed that he would prefer to kill me later rather than then sooner.

Your Average Joe (Unplugged)Your Average Joe (Unplugged)
A Humorous and Insightful Christian Devotional

by Joseph D. Schneller 

The Christian journey is no easy path. Yet many believers suffer from false assumptions that Christians are supposed to have it all together, that the walk of faith should be one of comfort and ease, and that difficulties come solely from mistakes or unfaithfulness.

In Your Average Joe Unplugged, Joseph Schneller voices inner struggles of faith that resonate broadly among Christians. He writes for those tired of the canned answers, for everyday believers desiring to live in faith amidst the joys and pains, the responsibilities and tragedies of life. Through 30 daily devotionals and a half-dozen humor articles, he presents honest, often humorous encouragement for your Christian pilgrimage through the challenges of life. And all throughout he shows how, by Christ's grace, our everyday lives can have eternal impact.

Truth Standing On Its HeadTruth Standing On Its Head
Insight for an Extraordinary Christian Walk from The Sermon on the Mount
by John N. Day

Dr. John Day, Bible scholar and pastor, begins with the paradoxical Beatitudes and takes us through our Lord's greatest Sermon in depth, offering readers a "mind-expanding and life-transforming" experience.

How can the meek inherit the earth? How are the persecuted blessed? While these are not things that we naturally associate with happiness, this is Jesus' startling opposite-from-the-world way of bringing us into the most blessed and happy life— an extraordinary Christian walk.

"This provocative break with our own comfortable presuppositions ultimately drives us to the Cross where our own fail- ings can be exchanged for the righteous- ness of Christ."

We all enjoy those toys and gifts,
The Christmas trees , so bright.
We’re fond of dear old Santa’s
Bag of goodies. Such delight!

But I must ask this question
Midst this crass commercial joy:
“Whatever did become of
Our beloved Jewish Boy”?

I’m really all for happiness,
Love pleasure, like the rest,
But anything in-place-of
Always ends up second-best.

That tree will drop its needles,
And its cheer will disappear
As we pack away that “happiness”
In boxes, every year.

All that tinsel has its beauty,
But we’d better know it’s brief,
’Else that “failing fast felicity”
Is apt to turn to grief.

So, fill up Santa’s stockings,
Feast and fill those bellies tight.
But let His love fulfill you
So your joy won’t end that night.

It’s when Christmas lasts forever
That “our now” becomes sublime.
It’s the day when man first SAW HIS WORD,

(II Corinthians 5:19 “...God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself.”)

The American Dream: Jamestown and the Planting of the American Christian Republic The Governor's Story: The Book That Couldn't Stay Lost
by Dorothy Robbins

What is truly remarkable about "The Governor's Story" is it is an easy-to-read, exciting book that feels like a novel. It is a great read from an entertainment standpoint meeting the needs of the ordinary reader looking to be "swept away" for a few hours. But it also fills an important gap in American history. This is the fascinating story of the manuscript written about the founding of our country by the Pilgrims' governor: lost for 80 years and recovered through the providence of God in 1897. Bradford's manuscript is the only written history of the founding of a Christian nation (other than Israel) which makes it not only unique but valuable.

The Fight for Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion & Freedom of the Press in the New Millennium
by Joe King

These two authors take a close look at how God Directed Here in hundreds of examples of illustrated counterpoint is Joe King's ultimate editorial testimony—Battlestrip Galactica—an installment in the A.D.=Anno Domini—The Cure For The Common Era series.
For the mature, thoughtful Christian with a sense of humor, Battlestrip Galactica, by Pulitzer nominee Joe King, thoroughly documents the systematic anti-Christianity of today's editorial cartooning. Herein lies an opportunity to help redeem another sector of culture through media education, while enjoying Joe King's unique brand of graphic humor.
For the past decade, The Funny Paperz by Joe King has stood in the gap of newspaper journalism, a lone voice in the cartoon wilderness. This year the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC) erased the entire archive of his work from the national servers in a futile attempt to silence his ongoing statements of faith.

Viral on the Internet:
Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Praise for the Columbus Day Newsletter:
How refreshing to hear someone acknowledge and honor Columbus. Because I work in a public school setting, I think it is no surprise that his name is never mentioned, except in a spirit of mocking, in the public schools.
- Gail H. (Oxnard, CA)
