The Growth of Human Capital

Written by Gary North on December 19, 2015

And he [God] brought him [Abram] forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness (Gen. 1 5:5-6). The word of […]

The New Testament’s Tithe

Posted on December 19, 2015

By James Jordan In 1979, Ross House Books (P. O. Box 67, Vailecito, CA 95251) brought out a book by R. J. Rushdoony and E. A. Powell entitled Tithing and Dominion.

Private Property Rights

Written by Gary North on December 12, 2015

Thou shalt not steal (Ex. 20:15). God, as the Creator, possesses absolute sovereignty over every aspect of the creation, including property. God is the owner of the world (Ps. 50:10-12). Christ’s parable of the talents presents the sovereignty of God in terms of the analogy of a loan from a lord to his servants. They […]

Political Masochism

Written by Gary North on December 12, 2015

“There are two kinds of income recipients in the world,” H. L. Mencken once quipped, “people who work for a living, and people who vote for a living.” It’s a good line. I wish I’d said it. Yet the grim reality of contemporary political life is that it really is not that significant when the […]

The Cultural Mandate

Written by Gary North on December 12, 2015

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth” (Gen. 1:28). Inescapably, the first […]

Freedom, Productivity, and Progress

Posted on December 12, 2015

By Edward Coleson Emerson once remarked that if a man made a better mousetrap the world would beat a path to his door, but he neglected to mention what some of the folks would do when they got there. It is to be expected that the Amalgamated Mice of America would mouse-cott the new arrangement, […]

Separation and Dominion

Written by Gary North on December 12, 2015

But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast that you may know how the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel (Ex. 11:7). Basic to many of the ancient cultures was the distinction between “the people,” the group to which a […]

Compound Economic Growth

Written by Gary North on December 5, 2015

Economic development is one of the most popular topics among economists today. Since the end of World War II, economists have become convinced that linear economic growth is both possible and desirable. They have almost universally concluded that one of the primary functions of the State is to promote economic development, not only in the […]

Isaiah’s Critique of Inflation

Written by Gary North on December 5, 2015

The prophets of Israel were seldom popular men. They had a habit–a nasty habit, in the eyes of the political and religious authorities–of speaking God’s mind in front of the people. They did not hesitate to spell out the nature of the sins of the people, the government, and the “opinion setters” of their day. […]

The Society of Satan

Posted on December 5, 2015

by R. J. Rushdoony Man is inescapably religious. He may deny God, but all the categories of his life remain religious, and all are categories borrowed from the Triune God. Since the only world man lives in is the world God created, his thinking even in apostasy is inevitably conditioned and governed by a God-given […]
