Election 1992: A Series on the Presidential Candidates

By Editorial Staff
Published March 1, 1992

One year ago last month, President George Bush stood high above the political landscape surveying the spoils of victory from the Gulf War. At his feet stood an adoring multitude of American patriots thrilled by this long-waited demonstration of our nation’s strength and conviction, and awed by the man who had so skillfully orchestrated it. Under his feet lay a subservient Republican Party and a devastated Democratic Party cowed into silence by Bush’s 89% approval rating and the fear of being labeled unpatriotic for any opposition to the triumphant Commander-in-chief.

Bush’s post-Gulf War popularity was powerful enough to convince the most disillusioned Republican conservatives that any attempt to oppose his re-election would be ludicrous. It was powerful enough to frighten away all the major democratic presidential aspirants: Jackson, Gephardt, Gore, Bentsen, Nunn, Rockefeller and Cuomo. Bush’s international bravado was sufficient to send nearly all of his political opponents fleeing to their foxholes to lick their wounds for another four years.

But oh, how seasons change! Just one year later, despite the nearly comatose state of almost all his “loyal” opposition across the political spectrum, President Bush seems ready to snatch a dramatic defeat from the jaws of certain victory. The same George Bush who drew a line in the sands of Saudi Arabia in August 1990, betrayed his famous “read my lips” promise just weeks later by signing the largest tax increase in history.

And with every percentage drop in sales, salaries and home values, and every sharp increase in the unemployment rate, personal bankruptcies and home foreclosures, Bush’s once stratospheric approval rating has sunk lower and lower. This once unthinkable cave-in has inspired one irresistible Republican and five second-string Democrats to enter the presidential derby trumpeting the common theme that the emperor has no clothes.

As the sitting president, George Bush’s character and ideals are well known. We have all had ample opportunity to see him in action and evaluate his merits. Unfortunately, his six major opponents (Buchanan, Brown, Clinton, Harkin, Kerrey and Tsongas) are largely unknown quantities for most voters outside the candidates’ home states, or in Pat Buchanan’s case, for those who are not aficionados of Crossfire, The Capitol Gang, or the McLaughlin Group.

To bridge this early familiarity gap, The Forerunner will run a special Election 1992 series highlighting each one of the major party candidates. We’ll also take a look at one serious third party candidate, Howard Phillips of the U.S. Taxpayers Alliance, and one perhaps too well known fringe candidate, David Duke.

We will not to examine every item in the candidate’s laundry list of opinions and proposals. Rather, we will focus on the character of these men, and will attempt to distill and critique the quintessential principles that motivate them, comparing their worldviews against biblical standards.

This month the spotlight is on Pat Buchanan and Howard Phillips.

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)

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

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.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

Running Time: 130 minutes
