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.(We accept PayPal and all major credit cards.)

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.

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.(We accept PayPal and all major credit cards.)
