Above: The Personhood NOW Team in Florida
I recently talked to a nationally known Christian leader who opposes the Personhood Amendment in the state of Florida. His reasoning was that with the current make-up of the Supreme Court, that it is “bad timing.” I then asked him what was his organization’s plan to finally end all child killing in Florida. He said, “We want a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution. No question!” But as for right now, he opposes any attempt at it. He is also weighing if he should publicly make a statement against Personhood.
Then I thought about the oddity of making such a statement. These “pro-life” organizations publicly ally themselves with the pro-abortion advocates who oppose Personhood, but they secretly hope to switch sides once they will see that Personhood Amendments are gaining ground. They even agree that we will win eventually. It reminds me of the Italians in World War Two. No one today remembers that the nation of Italy eventually helped defeat Hitler. They only remember Mussolini. They remember that Christian leaders in Italy did not do enough to oppose Hitler. That is how the “Christian” enemies of Personhood will be remembered too.
I can understand the “timing” issue. There is a time when a frontal assault may not be wise. American troops didn’t enter the front against Hitler until we thought we could win. But we did what we could in the meantime to show our support for nations such as Great Britain who were already in the thick of the battle. In any case, I can’t understand working against a strategy that we think must eventually win.
What we need to say to the “pro-life” enemies of the state Personhood Amendments, is that this is a battle for “right now.” This is not a political or social battle. It is a covenantal battle. Pro-abortion laws are not fought against because of political expediency. Child murder is a gross act of rebellion and idolatry against God.
We will be judged by God and by history as to whether we obeyed from the beginning. Partial obedience is disobedience. Delayed obedience is disobedience. Incremental obedience is disobedience. God requires total obedience to the best of our knowledge and ability.
The war isn’t going to be won by a clever or pragmatic approach. It is going to be won because God sees full repentance among a remnant of His people. I submit that the remnant is here, but simply needs to be activated with this knowledge that we are in a covenantal battle and that we will inevitably win the war if we obey. If we work toward Personhood NOW, we will eventually get there. If we delay our obedience, then we will be counted among those who opposed Personhood when our support was needed the most.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification
In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.
By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).

“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.
The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).
