To mobilize Christians to Oppose civil tyranny through the proclamation, implementation, and defense of Christ's perfect law of liberty (James 1:25)
Feature P.L.I. Publication
The Church has many enemies, and they all have a vision for the future that drives them in their conquests for power; could they be any happier to know that most Christians currently expect to be defeated by them? In this exposé on prominent evangelical eschatology, Chris Carter and Richard attempt to shed light on the gravity of the Church's eschatological beliefs and how they are essential in determining the success, or failure, of the Church in pushing back the darkness of the day and advancing Christendom on Earth, as Christ has commanded that we do.
A P.L.I. designated must read, this book takes the reader through a detailed and comprehensive overview of the biblical authenticity of Christian arguments present during the pre-revolutionary period. The author, Gary Stewards, produces concrete evidence that the American clergy's argumentation was rooted in a, at the time, long standing tradition of biblical civil resistance known as Protestant Resistance Theory (or Theology), and not that of secular enlightenment thinking from persons such as John Locke. Though many Christians and clergy were indeed influenced by such secular thinking, the evidence which Gary Steward provides shows that the bulk of clergy, on both the American and British sides, relied on their own biblical theological traditions to argue for the justice in physically resisting the civil tyrannies of the British. Many readers will likely be surprised to read names and statements from clergy such as Johnathan Edwards, George Whitfield, and John Witherspoon, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, who were all rigorously committed theologians, and who supported the right of resistance against civil authorities.
