Questions and Answers

By Jay Rogers
Published February 2009

We interviewed twelve leaders of Christian ministries who are involved with the work of Revival, Reformation and Reconstruction. We culled the best “sound bites” into video files of between 2 to 5 minutes. Each question is to be thought of as a separate “program” to which several speakers respond. It will take you about 20 minutes to view each program. We suggest that you systematically study each of the ten programs at different times. You are encouraged to take notes as though it were a live seminar. Then take the time to read the interviews with each leader. To read the text of the following answers go to the Second American Revolution home page and follow the links of the names of the featured speakers.

Question #1:— Didn’t the Apostle Paul say that we are no longer under law but under grace? If so, then what is the use of the Old Testament Law of God under the New Covenant? What is the role of the New Testament Christian in society?

George Grant 4:53
R.J. Rushdoony 2:38
Randall Terry 3:38
Monte Wilson 4:01
Jeff Ziegler 4:07

Question #2:— Was the New Testament Church really a “New Testament” Church as we think of it today? In what ways was their life and world view different from ours?

Jay Grimstead 2:12
R.J. Rushdoony 3:55
Steve Schlissel 4:40
Randall Terry 2:49
Phil Vollman 3:06
Jeff Ziegler 3:29

Question #3:— Can we really legislate the biblical standards of morality on non-Christians? The non-Christian doesn’t even believe in the Bible, so how can we even talk about building a society based on the Law of God?

George Grant 3:55
R.J. Rushdoony 3:35
Andrew Sandlin 2:35
Randall Terry 3:32
Phil Vollman 4:10

George Grant 4:27
Howard Phillips 3:39
R.J. Rushdoony 3:09
Phil Vollman 3:58
Jeff Ziegler 2:52

Question #5:— Were the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution drafted to uphold the moral laws of God — or were they Deistic humanist documents? If they were Christian documents, where have we gone so far off track?

George Grant 4:47
Howard Phillips 3:02
Steve Schlissel 2:41
Jeff Ziegler 4:07
Randall Terry 3:32

Question #6:— What about the “establishment of religion” clause in the U.S. Constitution? Doesn’t the U.S. Constitution forbid the display of religion in the civil sphere?

George Grant 4:09
Howard Phillips 3:15
R.J. Rushdoony 3:09
Andrew Sandlin 2:06
Steve Schlissel 4:16
Randall Terry 1:54
Monte Wilson 2:03
Jeff Ziegler 3:06

Question #7:— What about the idea that the government should be neutral and should recognize that we live in a democratic, pluralistic society?

George Grant 2:52
Jay Grimstead 1:44
Howard Phillips 2:40
R.J. Rushdoony 2:49
Steve Schlissel 3:15
Randall Terry 4:09
Phil Vollman 2:58
Jeff Ziegler 2:23

Question #8:— In a Christian republic based on biblical law, would non-Christian religions be banned or would they have as much freedom as they have now?

George Grant 4:38
Howard Phillips 4:36
R.J. Rushdoony 3:35
Andrew Sandlin 3:01
Steve Schlissel 2:25
Randall Terry 2:58
Monte Wilson 4:18

Question #9:— But wouldn’t a Christian Republic run according to God’s Law become oppressive to non-Christians?

George Grant 2:49
Jay Grimstead 2:04
R.J. Rushdoony 2:12
Andrew Sandlin 2:26
Steve Schlissel 1:57
Randall Terry 2:03
Monte Wilson 3:44
Jeff Ziegler 3:06

Question #10:— What can Christians begin to do from a practical standpoint to begin to rebuild our nation according to the standard of the Law of God? What would a Christian America look like?

George Grant 4:09
Jay Grimstead 3:03
R.J. Rushdoony 1:57
Randall Terry 2:43
Phil Vollman 4:18
Monte Wilson 2:38
Jeff Ziegler 3:52

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.

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

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.
