“No Trespassing”: The Bible’s Principle of Ownership

Written by Gary North on January 30, 2016

Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour’s landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the Lord thy God giveth thee to possess it (Deuteronomy 19:14). The first principle of a Biblical covenant is transcendence. God is the Creator. How does this apply to man […]

The Home Business as a Christian Calling

Written by Gary North on January 30, 2016

In every person’s life there are key turning points. I believe this is also true of nations and civilizations. These turning points have meaning only in reference to long, uneventful periods of conventional day-to-day activities. That is the whole meaning of a turning point.

Why I Was Inoculated Against Powerball Fever

Written by Gary North on January 16, 2016

As a matter of principle, I do not gamble. There is a theological reason for this. It is the doctrine of the sovereignty of God. Calvinists have opposed gambling for centuries. Gambling assumes that God is not sovereign; rather, either chance is sovereign or the law of large numbers is sovereign. Neither is sovereign. So, […]

Christ’s Mind and Economic Reconstruction

Written by Gary North on January 9, 2016

The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment: For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:15-16). Good judgment. What would a wise man pay to buy good judgment? If […]

Unprofitable Servants

Written by Gary North on January 2, 2016

So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do (Luke 17:10). The words of Jesus are not palatable to the self-proclaimed autonomous man. Jesus, to use the vernacular, never gave man a lot of […]

Squeezing Through the Eye of a Needle

Written by Gary North on December 26, 2015

And again I say unto you, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying: “Who then can be saved?” But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, […]
