The Mandate: The Chinese Forerunner

By Editorial Staff
Published April 3, 2008

I have been very grateful to our Lord beyond my ability to express for what He has done through you with The Forerunner. And now we have the Russian and Chinese versions! Only when we are in “our Life Hereafter” will we as parts of the “cloud of witnesses” come to know what an enormous uplifting effect those great periodicals (Predvestnik and The Mandate) have had and will be having on our world.

Champions for Christ in the Amazon

I am writing this note from the Amazons of Peru. My family and I are here for a two month span. I am holding a school of evangelism for 60 Christian leaders, as well as going into the schools and university campuses. The group here who invited us to come have a real vision to reach the Indian tribes throughout the jungles, as well as start Bible studies in the many villages which grow cocaine for U.S. consumption – The best way to curb the drug problem (U.S.) is to get the growers saved and under the Lordship of Jesus! I’m teaching new strategies for evangelism in the ’90s. All are multi-media evangelistic tools that attract huge crowds of non- believers in Latin America. I’m teaching them also how to preach Lordship, lay foundations, of true repentance, etc. It’s exciting! Thanks for the wonderful article you ran on Campeones para Cristo (Champions for Christ). Could you send us all the back issues of The Forerunner to help us as missionaries? We’d love to keep up on what’s happening. The cutting-edge articles will also help us to help others.

Freedom for former USSR permanent?

Some time ago, two ministries I have respect for both warned about the freedom in the C.I.S. being not permanent. A number of pastors in the C.I.S. told that the Holy Spirt had impressed upon them that the freedom of religion would not go on indefinitely. There was a vision of a wheel which rolled in one direction and the more it rolled the more freedoms the Russian people experienced. But by and by the wheel began to slow down. Eventually the wheel came to a stop. After hesitating a bit, the wheel began to roll back in the direction from whence it came, and as it rolled back, the freedoms the people had enjoyed began to be taken away one after another. I don’t know whether this will occur soon or not, but this is from respectable men with good ministries.

Editor’s response: Our strategy for reaching nations in the former USSR and now communist China is to act urgently not knowing how long the opportunity of openness may exist. However, we are not driven by prophecies, visions and dreams predicting the failure of the progress of liberty in the world. This is not consistent with what Jesus Christ himself prophesied: “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then the end shall come” (Matthew 24: 14). It is possible that freedoms in the former USSR may be short lived, but we are driven by a gospel of victory not of defeat.

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

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.

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

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.
