Creating a more peaceful and just world
President George Bush has turned the Persian Gulf crisis into a triumph of American leadership. From the day he first mobilized an unprecedented coalition of nations against Saddam Hussein last fall until his surprising statement in February throwing down an ultimatum for withdrawal, Bush has seized the initiative to create a more peaceful and just world.
For years, other countries have wondered whether the United States could be a faithful friend or would cut and run in an hour of trouble. For years, many have wondered whether Bush had enough inner steel to be unbending in crisis. He has now answered both questions and the world is safer for it.
Had the United States and its allies not sent their young men and women into the breach, Hussein would now have his hand at the jugular of every nation that runs on oil. His Army would have savaged and pillaged thousands of additional innocents in Kuwait. And every dictator in the world would have an engraved invitation to rape and steal from his neighbors.
The United States today enjoys greater respect than at any time since an American first stepped onto the moon
The American led coalition has rewritten that story: The liberation of Kuwait, the dismantling of the Iraqi Army, the humiliation of Saddam Hussein. Would be aggressors must shudder at the thought that if they invade another country, a Tomahawk cruise missile could come whizzing around the corner and down their ventilation shaft.
The United States today enjoys greater respect around the world than at any time since an American stepped onto the moon. Its men and women in uniform serve with renewed pride. The prospects for peace and justice are rising again.
Today, while in need of much repair and reform from within, the United States is still the world’s last and best hope for freedom. The Free World looks to us for leadership. And as is the case many times, leadership calls for foresight, courage, and strength, even in the face of the shortsighted and temporary opposition of those who are overwhelmed by fear and greed. We cannot shrink from this role.
It is one thing to grasp for leadership before you are mature enough to handle it. It is another thing to shrink back from the responsibility of leadership once maturity for leadership has come.

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.

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.

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.
