Written by Gary North on February 6, 2016

exemption

The fat is now in the fire. A group has taken the Catholic Church into Federal court to protest its tax exemption. The reason? The Church has taken a public stand against abortion. The abortion issue is political, and therefore involves legislation, the plaintiffs assert. The Internal Revenue Code says that tax-exempt organizations that are […]

Written by Gary North on January 30, 2016

biblical-blueprints

Does the Bible have answers for the challenges of Keynesianism, socialism, liberation theology, and Jim Wallis? Yes. Desperate cries for liberation sound around the globe. Oppression, injustice, and abject need pockmark every continent and every nation. Quite naturally, the Leftists rush in to exploit the discontent with promises of liberty and justice for all. Sadly, […]

This essay describes a clash between two religions, with believers in a third religion standing on the sidelines, waiting to see the outcome of the clash. The Bible presents it as the archetypal clash in history between these two religions. This confrontation has been going on since the Garden of Eden. The first of the […]

I teach four years of literature courses for the high school program of the Ron Paul Curriculum. I also teach six weeks of literature for the eighth grade. For these lessons, I analyze two novels: Edward Bellamy’s Looking Backward: 2000–1887 (1888) and Charles Sheldon’s In His Steps (1896). Bellamy’s book is occasionally assigned to college […]

Written by Gary North on September 26, 2015

Rev. Jim Wallis is ecstatic about the Pope’s visit to America. This is bad news for traditional Catholics. Having Jim Wallis on your side is comparable to getting full support from the Italian army. Who is Jim Wallis? He is this century’s #1 spokesman for Progressivism’s social gospel to the evangelical-fundamentalist Right. America’s Leftist media […]

Jonah and Nahum: Prophets to the Gentiles

Jonah and Nahum brought covenant lawsuits against Nineveh/Assyria. Nineveh accepted Jonah’s message and repented. The result: positive national sanctions. Nahum came over a century later. He said that time had run out for Nineveh. It had. The Babylonians conquered Assyria in the next generation. Conclusion: Assyria was under God’s law and therefore under the law’s […]

Online: Calvin’s Lost Sermons on Deuteronomy

Written by Gary North on February 23, 2015

john-calvin

John Calvin preached 200 sermons on Deuteronomy. They have been dropped down the memory hole. Calvinist seminary professors have never heard of them, let alone read them. Until today, they had an excuse. Not any longer. In 1583, a translation of them appeared in English. This was ignored, then forgotten. Over four centuries later (1987), […]
