Five World Changing DVDs

The greatest revolutionaries and reformers in history have understood that you cannot change the world by rule of force, you must first change the culture by changing the worldview of the people – their beliefs, ideas and ethics.

Benjamin Franklin on the printing press: “Give me 26 lead soldiers and I will conquer the world.”


Benjamin Franklin once said, “Give me 26 lead soldiers and I will conquer the world.” Franklin knew that a printing press loaded with the 26 letters of the alphabet had more power than loaded guns when it came to revolution. So did Karl Marx and many other socialist revolutionaries. The world hasn’t yet recovered from the changes they began with only ink and paper.

Ideas have consequences. This is a foundational truth. The arts, media and education have more to do with social reform than politics, which is merely a reflection of the worldview of the prevailing culture.

We hear Christians in our day complain about the “lame stream media” and “liberal Hollywood.” Of course, this outcry doesn’t stop the media and entertainment industries from generating billions of dollars of profit. In turn, these social juggernauts subtly impact the values and belief systems of the people and influence the political process as well.

Today, we are in the midst of a media revolution. As in Franklin’s day, the written word is the key to power. Although the literate are more likely to be found writing the script to a film or new media broadcast than the political tracts that fueled the American Revolution. At the same time, we see more and more Christians reengaging the culture and getting involved in the political process. However, without a consistent biblical worldview, we are prone to reform efforts that look good on the surface, but ultimately conform to world’s patterns. If we don’t have a total biblical worldview, we will ultimately fail to please God in our efforts.

The Bible declares that Christian ideology will ultimately rule the whole world, but this conquest will not be forced on people as in the manner of political systems. This ideology will come by being expounded in the written word and other resulting media. As it was said in the time of Israel’s King David, it will be said of our generation, “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it” (Psalms 68:11).

A Biblical Blueprint for Restoring Our Fallen Culture

The following is a primer for Christians to be trained to the battle. Here are five video seminars that are truly word changers. Each one of these presentations is just as relevant today as when first released. See any of the following presentations, as well as related video clips and articles, at: www.Forerunner.com.

A Christian Manifesto and How Should We Then Live? are a great introduction to Dr. Francis Schaeffer, one of the most influential Christian thinkers of the twentieth century. These two DVDs, along with Schaeffer’s many writings, are responsible for countless Christians being launched into political and social activism.

God’s Law and Society is a four-hour, ten-part seminar composed of programs of about 20 minutes each. We asked 16 experts in Christian ethics to answer ten of the most common objections and questions that Christians have regarding biblical Law as it relates to civil politics and culture. This has had a great impact among Christian leaders ever since it first appeared as you will see on the testimonial page.

The Beast of Revelation: Identified challenges the prevailing defeatist eschatology of most evangelical Christians. Does the world belong to King Jesus and His faithful stewards? Or does the earth belong to the devil and the Antichrist? Based on Ken Gentry’s lecture at the national Ligonier conference, this presentation gives a little considered, but historically valid interpretation of the book of Revelation, keeping audience relevance and historical context in the forefront.

The Real Jesus is a video I produced in response to the countless “Jesus” specials we see in television that call into question all the vital components of the Gospel. One of the greatest challenges to the Gospel, in fact, is equipping Christians to be able to give an answer to the distortions of liberal theology that are presented by the popular media.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer – A Christian Manifesto DVD

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

“Where have the Bible-believing Christians been in the last 40 years?” asks Schaeffer. “Where have we been as we have changed to this other consensus and all the horrors and stupidity of the present moment have come down on our culture?”

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Ten parts, over four hours of instruction!

King David exulted in Psalm 119: “Oh, how I love Thy law! It is my meditation day and night!” Tragically, the testimony of most Christians today is: “How I ignore Thy law because I am under grace!” The result? An America where over 40 percent of the population (including the President) claim to be born-again, where babies are being sacrificed in the name of “choice,” homosexuality is protected, even celebrated, where good is called evil and evil good.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified DVD

Features Dr. Kenneth L. Gentry’s teaching at the 1999 Ligonier conference

This presentation features Dr. Kenneth L. Gentry’s one-hour teaching on the book of Revelation from the 1999 Ligonier conference in Orlando, Florida. An introduction hosted by Eric Holmberg sets the stage with dramatic vignettes and a critique of the dispensational view of the end-times prevalent in American pop culture. An additional one-hour question and answer session follows as Dr. Gentry attempts to answer the question:

Who is the beast of Revelation?

Numerous candidates have been advanced throughout the years by noted Bible experts. These have included Pope Leo, Napolean, Lenin, Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mussolini, Henry Kissinger, Mikhail Gorbachev, and even Ronald Reagan. Theories and predictions about the Beast go on and on.

According to NEWSWEEK (11/1/99), 19 percent of all Americans and nearly half of all evangelical Christians “believe that the Antichrist is on the earth now.” The popularity of this theorizing on the identity of the Beast is seen in the many books on the market which have sold tens of millions of copies. One title, Left Behind by Tim LaHaye, became the New York Times number one best seller in 1999.

The Beast of Revelation is the main character in many films which paint him as a diabolical world dictator who will bring about a New World Order, who will unite all world religions in order to worship him. According to some Bible prophecy experts, the Beast will control the destiny of every individual on the planet through hand-implanted computer chips with personal identification numbers. And finally, it is believed that the Beast will seal his own destruction by bringing the late great planet earth to the brink of Armageddon through a nuclear holocaust.

Now at last, a plausible candidate for the identity of the dreaded Beast has been identified. If you will consider Dr. Gentry’s case with an open Bible and an open mind, this teaching is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation and even more importantly – to radically alter your entire Christian worldview as well!

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus DVD

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archaeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views.

Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified).

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)
