Marriage and Return to Teaching (2001 to present)
I never joined a church the whole time I was in Pensacola because I saw my stay there as temporary. I attended several churches, but I wasn’t encouraged by what I saw there (including the Brownsville Revival). When the staff of Reel to Real moved to Nashville, I came back to Melbourne. I soon met a woman from Venezuela and got married three months later. I got a teaching job again, but once I moved to Kissimmee, Florida, most of my time and energy for ministry fell by the wayside. A bright spot has been the proximity of R.C. Sproul’s church. I don’t see this church as ever supporting my ministry, but the teaching of R.C. Sproul is an inspiration to me. He is a great preacher and it is the first church I have felt good about joining after a few years of uncertainty. Obviously, my views have become increasingly Reformed over the years and being a member of Sproul’s church has taken out of the loop of much of what is happening within the charismatic movement. I think that is a good trend and I hope more charismatics who are examining faith and doctrine will investigate Reformed theology. In fact, it is my goal to help people understand theology better through media productions.
As I already wrote, I have experienced a rebirthing of the vision for ministry in 2006. In the 1990s, I often operated under the presumption that “God told me to do this …” or “God gave me a vision to start media houses in all the nations of the world.” I haven’t received any “marching orders” like that in over six years. However, I believe more than ever that God is sovereign and directs our steps if we seek Him. I don’t blame anyone for hindering me because even those who worked against me and tried to destroy me only added to the victories God intended for me.
Today, I don’t have the same burning vision I once had. I just feel a necessity to take things one-step at a time until I can see where I am going. I also want to invite people to consider becoming to be part of the vision. I can see a time when there will be consistent support for part-time helpers. I am not looking for financial giving at this time for a ministry. I am rather looking for people of like vision who might feel called to produce Christian media or who may want to cooperate in some way. Right now, “we” at The Forerunner consist of a board of officers, a part-time website consultant and me.

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy
Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.
Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.
Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

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).

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.
