Религиозные события 1997 года

Редакционная статья
Published May 1998

В ушедшем году, религия показала свою возрастающую роль в жизни всего мира. Так по мнению американских журналистов, многие события так или иначе связанные с религиозной жизнью представляли интерес не только для журналистов и читателей духовной периодики, но и для их коллег-репортеров и наблюдателей светских масс-медиа.

“Сегодня люди все чаще представляют себя в роли духовных искателей, это приводит к тому, что само понятие религии трактуется шире,” – говорит Дэвид Хейм, редактор христианского журнала “Крисчен Сенчури”, издающемся в Чикаго, – “также, такие вопросы как клонирование и «право на смерть», которые не принято было обсуждать, теперь заставляют задумываться многих о фундаментальных моральных и религиозных материях.”

Ассоциация религиозных репортеров назвала историей года материал о жизни и смерти матери Терезы, за ней следует марш мужчин “Промис Киперс” в Вашингтоне.

В то же время редакция “Крисчен Сенчури” назвала самоубийство 39 членов секты “Небесные врата” религиозным событием года, а также протесты Госдепартамента США против законов ограничивающих свободу вероисповедания (здесь, конечно же имеется в виду “Закон о свободе совести и религиозных объединениях”, принятый Госдумой России).

Среди прочих событий 1997 года называются также генетические эксперименты, такие как клонирование овечки Долли в Шотландии и дискуссия о возможности и последствиях клонирования человека. Кроме этого немалый резонанс вызвало бойкотирование Конвенцией Южных баптистов компании “Уолт Дисней”, конфликт между ортодоксами и светски настроенными евреями в Израиле, наступление на “домашние церкви” в Китае. Однако, конечно же, основной головной болью блюстителей прав человека с Капитолийского холма является вышеупомянутый российский “Закон о свободе совести”, ограничивающий деятельность сект нетрадиционных для русской культуры.

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.

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 United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).
