Can We Bring Real CHANGE to Government?

By Editorial Staff
Published May 2, 2008

By Graham Dugas

Why is it so hard to have real and effective change in the laws that come out of Washington? Consider, for example, the National Endowment of Arts (NEA), you know, the folks who brought us the infamous Maplethorpe exhibit of homosexual pornography – all funded by you through your hard earned tax dollars.

It is horrifying that some in our Capitol believe that the only way it is proper to display the Cross at government expense is if it is submerged in a vat of urine, as did another NEA funded “project.” Decent people work too hard to be coerced into subsidizing a degenerate “artist” to produce such trash.

You may wonder: Why am I repeating this old news that most of us are all to familiar with? For this reason – people wanted to abolish the NEA and they wanted it done fast. So what did our fine elected representatives do? They compromised of course!

These brave stalwarts cut a whopping 15 percent of the NEA’s funding. Why can’t we see some real results from our elevcted representatives? I believe it is because of a flawed approach. There is a prevailing philosophy that goes like this – “It is better to get half of a loaf than none at all.” That is to say after the negotiations you come away with a little rather than nothing at all.

“Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk likewise as ye have us for an ensample” (Phil 3:17). “And if any man obey not our word by this epistle note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed” (2 Thes. 3:14). By weakening proposed legislation with watered-down language until enough of our foes will sign the bill we can get “half a loaf,” or so we are told. This is done because legislators know before hand who will vote for what and where others stand on the issues. With the passage of time we are finding out the “half a loaf” is no loaf at all.

We must aim higher, even at the risk of losing. I would rather have no loaf, find out publicly who stands where, put them on record and thus “mark” our allies and “note” our foes. If we lose in going for the whole loaf we don’t come away with nothing, rather we come away with great riches. We now have the names of those who oppose us.

With the half a loaf approach, we allow our enemies to hide behind a watered-down bill. We really don’t know who wants to retain funding for the NEA and who wants to abolish it because the compromise bill allows those who support perversion to hide out. Righteous politicians are not afraid of being on the record, but the wicked are. Lets not give them a place to hide.

John 3:20 states, “For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest hid deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”

By putting these sly foxes on record it will be clear at voting time who is for Christ and who is against Him. This strategy will give us better legislators, which is what we really want.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

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.

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.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

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). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

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)
