How was the 1992 election decided?
The electoral college landslide that put Bill Clinton into office – 370 votes to President George Bush’s 168 – was the largest Democratic victory since 1964. Looking at the popular vote, however, the election was decided by a closer margin – 5.5 million votes – or five percent. It was the closest election since 1976.
Essentially, the 1992 presidential election was decided by 45
percent of the self-identified Christian community, who voted in favor of abortion and special privileges for homosexuals.
The Clinton victory is particularly sour to those who supported Bush’s pro-life, pro-family stances. According to a Christian Coalition exit survey, 25 percent of all voters in 1992 identified themselves as white evangelical Christians – or 25 million voters. Only 55 percent of these voters supported George Bush. The rest were divided: 28 percent supported Clinton; and 17 percent, Perot.
This election stood in stark contrast to 1988, when Bush received 88 percent of the Christian vote. This year over eight million Christians switched over to Clinton or Perot, candidates who support abortion on demand and homosexual rights. If this same group had supported Bush in 1992, he would have won by three million votes.
Looking at the electoral college, there were 10 states that supported Clinton with a margin of less than five percent. If the Christian/conservative voters in these states had supported Bush the way they did in 1988, and he had galvanized stronger support in his home state of Maine (where Perot almost surpassed Bush), the president would have eked out a narrow electoral college victory.
Before the Christian/conservative coalition congratulates itself for remaining the strongest force in the Republican Party, we should recognize that we, the people of God, may have brought the curses of Deuteronomy 28 on our nation. These scriptures deplore sodomy and infant sacrifice as abominations in the eyes of God, and assure the nation of Israel that they would be annihilated if they practiced this type of idolatry.
For the so-called evangelicals who voted for Clinton or Perot, this is extraordinarily bad.
“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God and if it first begin at us, what shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (1 Peter 4:17,18).

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

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).

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.
