Wall Street Fat Cats And Greedy CEOs Are Not What Is Wrong With America
Many people today blame corporate CEOs and fat cats on wall street for the problems America is facing. The reality is that America's problems will not be solved through such false generalizations. It is only when individual responsibility and personal morality is renewed in America that we will see the economic recovery we are desperately looking for.

The State Establishes Religion Through Public Schools
One of the protections to American liberty and prosperity our founding fathers set in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution is the establishment clause. Today, many people who misunderstand the purpose and intent of the establishment clause unfortunately define it in a way which is exactly the opposite of its original intent.

What Many Politicians Have in Common With Drug Dealers
Most people believe that we have a moral responsibility to rid our society of drug dealers, a profession that gets wealthy off of ruining other people's lives. Yet, it is a very difficult endeavor to get rid of drug dealers because there is a great market for illegal drugs.

Theonomy Is the Solution to Restore Honor to America
If we are going to see a clear vision set to restore honor to America, into uphold liberty and justice for all, we need a way to clearly describe our mission. Because the term "republican values" no longer refers to the founding principles of our nation, but rather a political party, I suggest that we adopt the term "Theonomy" in its place. The goal is not to enforce religious faith, but to implement social and moral structures which will be a blessing to all people; values which encourage human dignity, freedom, liberty, happiness and prosperity. Such values will keep the dream of our founding fathers alive in our generation.

Those Without Biblical Values Are the True Underprivileged
There are certain values which naturally lead to success and, as a byproduct, will naturally lead to wealth. The values which naturally lead to success are biblical values. When people are taught not to steal, not to bear false witness, to be just, to be respectful of others, to be industrious, creative and all of the other values which are taught in Scriptures, they will naturally develop successful lives.

The Biblical Sabbath Inspires Us to Excellence
Understanding the principle of working for six days and setting the seventh day aside for Sabbath is the key to humanity experiencing the deep satisfaction that so many are searching for. There is a great satisfaction in accomplishment which is ordained by God. Many people seek satisfaction without striving for accomplishment. The satisfaction that they are often seeking is a natural product of godly accomplishment.

Christianity Is for the Successful
Biblical religion has the power to inspire and captivate people of every class and situation in life. There is an incredible beauty to the vision for society which is revealed in the word of God, which when clearly presented, has the power to inspire people and create in them a longing for the kingdom of God. If we truly want to make a positive impact in the world, and see people come to saving faith in Christ, we need to clearly present the beauty and wonders of biblical religion before their eyes.

Biblical Social Architecture Is What Made America Great
Our founding fathers set us on a course which, if maintained leads to great prosperity, blessing and good in the Earth. We were set on the trajectory to be a powerful force against tyranny and for liberty in the world. Unfortunately, through ignorance of the truths of God's word we have failed to maintain that direction, and set out on a course that leads to a different destiny than our founding fathers desired for their posterity. Today we stand at a crossroads and have to choose a destiny for our society which will influence our posterity. We can choose to forsake a biblical social architecture which will lead to more corruption and injustice, or we can return to the values which made America great and leave for our children's children a society founded upon justice and liberty.

Theonomy Prepares The Way For Theocracy
Having a clear understanding of theocracy is important is because many people today who are seeking to bring modern social architecture in line with biblical law are being accused of trying to establish a theocracy. There is incredible awakening happening right now that seeks not to establish a theocracy politically, but rather a theonomy. A theonomy is the rule of God's law. It is important that we define the distinction between theocracy and theonomy so that we can make the vision which we are seeking to establish clear.

John Adams Teaches Us How to Overcome
Today we are facing so many social, political and economic difficulties that many people wonder whether we will be able to overcome them. Questioning whether we are able to turn around a failing system is a pertinent question because, when honestly asked, it confronts reality. A message of hope, without a realistic solution which has the power to bring positive change, is worthless.

How Glenn Beck Has Inspired Me
We are living in a time where we desperately need leaders to arise who can lead the nations out of spiritual, moral and economic bondage into the liberty which is fit for those created in the image of God. The only way that this can happen is if the good seed of God's word can be sown into the lives of people who so desperately need it. This is why people like Glenn Beck and others who have risen in the industry of television, radio and entertainment industries are in a position to affect such positive change if they were all to sow good seed.

Biblical Redistribution of Wealth
Many people will be surprised to discover that the Bible has a strategy for the redistribution of wealth. It is God's desire that wealth be used to benefit humanity, rather than to oppress it. At the very heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ is a proclamation of good news of deliverance for those who are oppressed, in bondage, sick or enslaved.
