David Rockefeller Is 101

Written by Gary North on August 6, 2016

David Rockefeller is arguably the longest-lived power behind the throne in American history. He received a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago in 1940. Yes, his grandfather had provided money to create the school, but the economics department was rigorous. He did not get a free ride academically. Yet he showed no signs […]

Critical Mass, Part 1: The Small Church

Written by Gary North on August 6, 2016

Recently, I drove from Tyler, Texas, to Houston and back. Driving down to Houston, which is about a four and a half hour drive by one route, you pass through a number of small towns whose populations are anywhere from two or three thousand to thirty thousand. The other route is about a three and […]

“Dear Dr. North: My Pastor Says . . .”

Written by Gary North on August 6, 2016

Laymen who care about theology are rare. They tend to hold theologies that differ from their pastors. Pastors rarely care about theology enough to read a theological book a month. Or six months. I mean read it: underline it, make marginal notes, and make notes in Evernote. About 20% of pastors care about church growth. […]

You Need a Long-Term Plan

Written by Gary North on August 1, 2016

Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth (Prov. 8:14-16). “By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.” This includes covenant-breaking kings and princes. As rulers, they necessarily imitate God. […]

Written by Gary North on July 30, 2016

This is my presentation at Mises University, the week-long conference for undergraduates. It is sponsored yearly by the Ludwig von Mises Institute. Here, I survey the remarkable legacy of Professor Mises. He hit many brick walls. None of them stopped him except death. He died on October 10, 1973. It seemed to be the low […]

Market Decentralization and Covenantal Organization

Written by Gary North on July 30, 2016

Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ (I Cor. 11:1).   The individual Christian has a model: Paul. He had a model: Jesus Christ. But this does not solve the institutional problem: What is the biblical model within each of these categories: Church, State, and family? For almost two millennia, […]

The Paralysis of Parachurch Ministries

Written by Gary North on July 30, 2016

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge […]

Torch and Compass

Written by Gary North on July 30, 2016

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the […]
