Two Minute Rushdoony Video

Please enjoy this short video by J.R. Rushdoony, probably my favourite theologian from the 20th century.

Excellent, excellent video! Real wisdom in that short piece. But quite funny with Charlie Daniels and "Orange Blossom Special" in the background! (BTW, RG, you got just as good a touch on that fiddle as Mr. Daniels!)

Hope you’ll take some time, please, to visit our Rushdoony-admiring site (he was/is my theological mentor), read some articles, listen to some radio shows, give me some feedback. We are Christians FIRST and not Republican Party cheerleaders. God bless you, your family, your work.

PS -- And do tell me, please, your specific areas of interest so I might direct you to some helpful information. My desire is to equip saints to be effective in the spiritual war we are in, the war against the Christ, which, alas, in America, especially in the church, has never been more intense.

Sample radio show: My interview with Ken Ham of "Answers In Genesis." Comments welcome:

* Note, lest I be misunderstood: Being a Republican is not a disease; it is a choice – a very bad choice, but a choice nonetheless.
