California Senator Richardson Report

By Editorial Staff
Published April 1, 1988

When a president is sworn into office, he places his hand on the Bible and swears before Almighty God to uphold the duties of that office.

It is reported that when the first four presidents of the United States were sworn into office, the Bible was opened to Deuteronomy 28. Very significant. The first 14 verses tell of the blessings that will accrue to a nation that honors God’s laws. Then, from verse 15 to 68, we are told, in no uncertain terms, of the punishment that will befall nations that ignore God’s commandments; 14 verses of good tidings, then 54 verses of pain!

It is quite obvious that the vast majority of American politicians give nothing but lip service to the laws which governed our forefathers’ actions. God, for all practical political purposes, is extinct. Reference to Scripture is literally nonexistent, and when someone does broach the subject of religious morals, their comments are politely or humorously ignored.

During a recent discussion with my colleagues regarding billions of dollars of bonded indebtedness the California Legislature intends to offer the public, I asked if someone would comment on the moral justification for saddling future generations with a debt of such monstrous proportions. One of my colleagues jocularly responded, “I can’t give you a moral reason, but I can give you an immoral one.”

Everyone laughed and that ended the subject. No one felt an obligation to address the moral implications of spending borrowed money now and placing the cost upon our children and grandchildren.

Morals are laughed at, not only by those in office but by those who elect them. We are a nation that has turned away from God, and it is manifested in our every action from the office of the President on down. We cavort with our deadly enemies while we ridicule our friends. We treat Gorbachev, one of the world’s great criminals, as a respected leader and fawn over brutal Marxist dictators, while ignoring the blood that drips from their hands.

Proverbs 17:15 states, “He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the righteous, both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.”

Scripture also tells us that God is “slow to anger,” but, to paraphrase, when pushed too far, His wrath is awesome. Also, those who He has favored He holds especially accountable, and to them His anger should be terrifying. America, take note!

Why is this politician sounding like a preacher delivering a sermon? Because I believe in the Lord and I’m trying to do what Scripture commands me to do. Ezekiel 33 instructs me to warn the people even though the warning may fall on deaf ears. My duty is to obey the Lord, and to the best of my limited ability, I intend to do so.

America is in for terrible judgment … and nothing less than national repentance can save this nation from the trouble that is just over the horizon. We are destined to wallow in our foolishness and pay the price for our stupidity. We have been given signs, but the warnings have gone unheeded. Sackcloth and ashes most assuredly are not a part of our national policy agenda!

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 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.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

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)

Running Time: 145 minutes
