Twenty-six lead soldiers

By Editorial Staff
Published April 3, 2008

WHAT FAMOUS AMERICAN MADE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT?

“Give me 26 lead soldiers and I will conquer the world.”

A) Andrew Jackson
B) George C. Patton
C) Douglas MacArthur
D) Benjamin Franklin

The Answer: Benjamin Franklin!

Franklin knew that a printing press loaded with the 26 letters of the alphabet had more power than loaded guns when it came to revolution. So did Karl Marx. The world hasn’t yet recovered from the changes he began with only ink and paper.

The printed word is a powerful medium; a God-given invention designed to fuel a different type of revolution. Centuries after Gutenburg invented the moveable type to produce the Bible, the printing press is still one of the most strategic, front-line weapons ever created for dispersing truth in a deep and enduring way. Christian literature still helps to fuel revolution all over the world.

Today we are on the brink of a new revolution: one that will involve cutting-edge technologies such as the personal computer, fiber-optics networks, digitalized sound and video, satellite transmissions and even holographic images.

In the days of America’s First Great Awakening to the time of the American Revolution to today, the written word has remained all important. It is the foundation for every form of transmitted knowledge. The literature that is about to emerge will not be persuasive words of wisdom, but words that demonstrate the power of the Holy Spirit – God’s writing fire!

We will soon witness the emergence of the world’s greatest and most influential literature – literature that will captivate the heart of the common people and confront them with the reality of Jesus Christ. The ungodly philosophies of men like Marx, Darwin and Nietzsche will be driven off the face of the earth.

The Bible declares that Christian ideology will ultimately rule the whole world … but this conquest will not be forced on people as in the manner of political systems. This ideology will come by being expounded in written words. As it was said in the time of Israel’s King David, it will be said of our generation:

“The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.”

- Psalms 68:11, KJV

I thought it was Karl Marx that said that. It does not matter because God will have the last word.

This quote is wrongly attributed to many people and indeed those people may have said the words but the original is much older. So old that the first recorded version stated ‘25’ lead soldiers because the letter J hadn’t become an offical letter yet. Also, it’s probably french in origin.

It was actually Johannes Gutenberg that said that

In the Days of These Kings (Book)

Perfect-bound Paperback — 740 pages

The Book of Daniel in Preterist Perspective

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).

The overarching message of Daniel is that Jesus the Messiah is even now ruling over the nations. He is the King of kings. Daniel tells us that Messiah’s kingdom will advance in the whole world from “generation to generation” (Daniel 4:4,34). Christ’s dominion is “given to the people of the saints of the most High” (Daniel 7:22). Our purpose then is to see “all people, nations, and languages … serve and obey him” (Daniel 7:14,27).

This comprehensive work offers a fascinating look at the book of Daniel in preterist perspective. Great attention is paid to the writings of ancient and modern historians and scholars to connect the dots and demonstrate the continuity of Daniel’s prophecy with all of Scripture.

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

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.

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.
