Paradigm Shift 2016: Brexit Times 50

Tank Man is the nickname of an unidentified man who stood in front of a column of tanks on June 5, 1989, the morning after the Chinese military had suppressed the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 by force. As the lead tank maneuvered to pass by the man, he repeatedly shifted his position in order to obstruct the tank’s attempted path around him. The incident was filmed and seen worldwide. More than 25 years after the incident, there is no reliable information about the identity or fate of the man.

11/8/16 began a new era in western history.

That date will live in notoriety similar to 9/11/2001 — the fall of the Berlin Wall and Tiananmen Square in 1989 — 11/22/63 — 12/7/41.

And so on.

Donald Trump predicted the 2016 election would be “Brexit times ten.”

I agree with that. Only this national populist phenomenon ought to be called, “Brexit times 50.”

These paradigm shifts take place exactly when they are meant to happen. It’s part of God’s plan for the progress of the Gospel in history. God brings the actual collapse of an order often with the destruction of a symbol in order to pave the way for His kingdom.

Think of the Handwriting on the Wall in Babylon 539 BC, the destruction of the Jewish Temple in AD 70, the Fall of the Roman Empire in AD 476, Luther’s 95 Theses in 1517. This shift might not seem as dramatic as any of those, but the 2016 election represents a destruction of a worldview that is the foundation of a political order. The overthrow of this worldview is still unfolding, but it is inevitable.

No one saw President Trump coming a year ago. No one foresaw the Twin Towers’ bombing, the Berlin Wall collapsing, the JFK assassination, Pearl Harbor … and on and on.

But it’s not Trump’s revolution. He was just the harbinger of judgment. The anger on the left is the same as the anger on the right. Feel the Bern? Sanders might have beaten Trump in the general election if the DNC had not fixed the primaries.

What’s the paradigm shift in 2016?

It’s no longer a divide between left and right. It’s now populism vs. the establishment.

Trump is the symbol.

If you know me at all, you know I am not a Trump supporter. But I do support what Trump symbolizes to a lot of people.

What does Trump symbolize and what is collapsing?

Western egalitarian humanism became the new religion of Europe and America in the past 30 years. It is now collapsing. Trump is the antithesis of that. Think about it.

Trump is Tank Man.

He had the audacity to stand up to both the Republican and Democrat machines. He foiled the experts by doing the opposite of how everyone around him thought a campaign should be run. But it could have been Sanders or any symbol of the populist rage against the establishment. In fact, the anti-Trump riots occurring in the wake of the election are a mirror image of the rage that got Trump elected.

I subscribe to the emails of several pro-abortion advocacy groups. A few weeks before the election they were saying that the Republicans might keep the Senate unless people donated to their organization. Trump was not even on their radar. They had no idea. Now Cecile Richards and all of the witches and pro-aborts are freaking out.

It doesn’t mean that we are going to end abortion in the next election cycle or even two. However, their religion is collapsing. Western collectivism is the foundation for the modern version of the ritual of human sacrifice. The individual is sacrificed for the collective. I believe it is a demonic force that hates the image of God in the Person in the womb, the weak and the elderly. And most of all, it hates the individuality that expresses the unique gifts, the light and truth of God in human beings.

When communism first entered Europe in 1917, one of the first laws that was passed was to liberalize abortion in the Soviet Union. Ever since then, socialism and communism has led to not only hundreds of millions of abortions but also the genocide of whole people groups and the oppression of Christians or anyone who would recognize a God who is greater than the state.

Soviet communism’s twin cousin is western egalitarian humanism. It is collapsing. The riots and hysteria you will see in the streets over the next few days, weeks and months is the evidence of that. God has robbed their faith. All they have ever had is their religious faith and it has been broken.

Into such unlikely upheavals, Revival and Spiritual Awakening takes place.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

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).

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“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).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

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.

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.
