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?

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?

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?

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

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?

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

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!

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

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.
