‘For His Mercy Endureth Forever’ (Rushdoony) — Lee Duigon

This is such an encouraging post by Lee Duigon!

“O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” — Psalms 136:1


Do we need God’s mercy? We wouldn’t last five minutes without it! Psalm 136, “For His mercy endureth forever,” inspired this essay by R.J. Rushdoony, published in the Chalcedon Magazine 20 years ago. God’s mercy lasts forever, he asked; how long does our mercy last? https://chalcedon.edu/magazine/for-his-mercy-endureth-forever Too many Christians think of God as if He […]

Sorry, I Can’t Give You Final Victory — Lee Duigon

The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit Thou at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.

– Psalm 110:1

“Final victory can only be achieved, and will be achieved, by Jesus Christ.”-Lee Duigon


 

The Lord of the Rings ends with all the bad guys destroyed and only good guys left. Why can’t my Bell Mountain series end that way? At least one reader has called for me to stop the series and cap it with some kind of “final victory.” Sorry, but I just can’t do it. My […]

‘Be Thou My Vision’ — Lee Duigon

 

“2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:2 KJV 

This is my favorite hymn! This post is from Lee Duigon’s blog.


This is probably the oldest hymn on our list, dating back to the 8th century and still beloved today–Be Thou My Vision, from Ireland. Sung by the Lebanon Youth Chorus.

There’s too much defeatism out there. Too many Christians carrying on like the battle’s lost already, bad guys win, nothing we can do about it, etc. 347 more words

Quick Devotional from Matthew 5:18 (Observation from the Greek) – The Domain For Truth

The Domain for Truth

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some time ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 5:18.  Here is my translation:

“ἀμὴν γὰρ λέγω ὑμῖν· ἕως ἂν παρέλθῃ ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ, ἰῶτα ἓν ἢ μία κεραία οὐ μὴ
Truly I say to you until the heaven and the earth will go away, not an iota nor one stroke

παρέλθῃ ἀπὸ τοῦ νόμου , ἕως ἂν πάντα γένηται. ”
will go away from the law, until everything is fulfilled

The Spirit of Caleb — Lee Duigon

Caleb was a man who trusted in God in spite of the odds that met him and the Israelites when approaching the Promised Land (Numbers 13). We need more people like Caleb who will stand up for the Lord in the cause of Jesus Christ!

Read this post by author Lee Duigon! Please pray that our faith in Christ will grow more and more each day through the help of the Holy Spirit!

It’s not too late to put our trust in God and get to work like we mean it. Repent of our sins and get busy! – Lee Duigon


Are we really just grasshoppers? You’ll remember from the Bible how the children of Israel, having reached the border of the Promised Land, sent spies to find out what it was like (Numbers, Chapter 13). The spies came back loaded with fruit and other good things. It’s a land flowing with milk and honey, all […]

Monday Q&A 6: God and Man — Elisha McFarland

In this post, Elisha McFarland explains the center of Christianity: God and man.

“In dying for the scum of the universe, Jesus bridged the gap between holiness and evil and brought us back into the company of His Father.” – Elisha McFarland


In our past three Q&A’s, we have discussed three highly important topics: the character of God, foundations of Christianity, and Scripture. Yet so far, none of these topics have been as important as the one to be discussed today. God and man. Deo et hominibus. Theós kai ánthropos. The center of Christianity.
