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?

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?

Andrew Sandlin 2:35
Randall Terry 3:32
Phil Vollman 4:10

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

R.J. Rushdoony 3:09
Andrew Sandlin 2:06
Steve Schlissel 4:16
Randall Terry 1:54

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

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

R.J. Rushdoony 2:12
Andrew Sandlin 2:26
Steve Schlissel 1:57
Randall Terry 2:03
Monte Wilson 3:44

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?

Jay Grimstead 3:03
R.J. Rushdoony 1:57
Randall Terry 2:43

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)

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!

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.

Running Time: 257 minutes
