At YouTube the same content is on the God’s Law and Society Channel.
I had all of these in RealPlayer streaming format for many years. But it was low bandwidth dial-up quality. With the higher bandwidth videos, it would likely cost hundreds of dollars per month to store and stream files of this size. The purpose of using YouTube was to take advantage of free server space and expose the many people who just mindlessly surf YouTube to the tenets of Reformed theology and Christian Reconstruction (otherwise known as Neo-Puritan social theory). I also hope to get a larger audience and sell a few more DVDs by advertising some of the content.
It was an incredibly time consuming task. I still have to upload about twenty more. The main problem of course will be that once I start getting tens of thousands of views per month, it will be hard to keep up with the comments. It will be a good problem to have. I set each video podcast up for me to approve comments before they are posted. Some of the comments can be extremely profane and blasphemous. I am somewhat liberal though in allowing for free expression of thought and even some mild profanity. My thinking is that it exposes the true spirit of my opponents.
I now have a total of about 50 short videos on YouTube all with a Christian theme. The videos I uploaded over a month ago have anywhere from 1000 to 2000 views. So I am expecting to have a larger audience of tens of thousands of people within a few months.
I have a few video projects in the works that are absolutely sensational. I’ll write more on that in upcoming blog entries. It will be interesting to see where the tally will be in a few months. I think I’ll have anywhere between 50,000 to 100,000 total views by the next two months. And the amazing thing to me is that this is free. Google actually makes money off me through advertising.
YouTube comments are a great way of getting feedback from an audience. Of course, my videos are a little bit esoteric and designed for a specific audience. I wrote in an earlier blog entry that I was interested to find out that my YouTube videos are extremely polarizing. They love me and they hate me. But what amazes me is the low level thinking of the average skeptic. Just to give an example, here is one response to a George Grant interview on Grace vs. The Law. This person obviously thinks he is clever, but is mistaken:
“Paul” was Shaul”. All the rest written there is based on a bad translation of a man who spoke Hewbrew and his words were more or less correctly translated and viola, the Christian religon which has changed forms until its not, and never was. How did you expect a bunch of Gauls and Celts to stop tearing bites out of an uncooked rabbit? Not only could they not sit and learn the Law, but they would not follow it either. Christianity is all based on bad translations. Ask King James.
Let alone the fact that this is a syntactical train wreck, it shows that the average non-Christian has been fed objections based on false knowledge. Even a cursory reading of the New Testament tells us that “Saul” was born in Tarsus in Asia Minor and was a Greek speaking Jew. As a Roman citizen he also bore the Latin name of Paul. It was usual for the Jews of that time to have two names, one Hebrew, the other Latin or Greek. All of Paul’s letters were written to Greek speaking people.
But if you read your Bible, you already know that. The point is that the average person has no knowledge of scripture and rejects Christ based on foolish lies as in the example above. It is amazing how ignorant people are. (One of my blog friends tells me that I need to be more gracious and stop calling these people “stupid.” I’ll admit it’s a hard habit to break.)
I had another comment to the Abortion 911 Emergency Calls videos that claimed that an unborn child was no different than a mass of cancerous cells. I get frequent comments from people who have been fed the lies of Planned Parenthood that abortion is “ten times safer than childbirth and seven times safer than having your tonsils removed.” That we show statistics to the otherwise infuriates them. These just have to be lies. Having owned a house and lived across the street from an abortion clinic for seven years, I saw the injured women being taken out in ambulances.
See the video Abortion Clinic 911 Emergency Calls (1 of 4). You can always argue with our statistics, but seeing is believing. It’s interesting that I haven’t had anyone try to refute this video, because it is just 911 Calls overlaid with video footage of the ambulances arriving at the abortion clinic to take away the injured women.
Perhaps people are so stupid (Oops! There I go again!) because the television media has been controlled by the liberal elite for the past 50 years. The good news is that Christians have it within their power to take it back. Let truth contend with the lies hand to hand on the battlefield of ideas. If God is truly God in a short time we will win.

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.

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).

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.

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.
