DavidCalhounAncient and Medieval Church History  (35 lectures)★★★★ and Reformation and Modern Church History (37 lectures) ★★★★★, by Dr. David Calhoun

These lectures were downloaded off of the Covenant Seminary website, and can be obtained for free. The series is excellent, and taught by one of the giants of church history, David Calhoun. Ancient and Medieval church history was excellent, but a bit too brief. The Reformation and Modern church history lectures also could have been much longer, yet were delightfully informative, even for someone quite aware of history of the church. David is a masterful lecturer, and holds one’s attention without difficulty. He does take some interesting viewpoints, such as coming down a bit soft on Kierkegaard and Karl Barth. This is in spite him admitting that he felt that Francis Schaeffer (who was one of his teachers at L’Abri) was one of the greatest theologians of all time. Dr. Calhoun is known as the historian of Princeton Seminary, having written the definitive history of that institution. His insights on American Christianity are fascinating and instructive. He will take you through the most interesting vignettes of church history, including recommending fishing books. For being free, there is no reason to not download and listen to Dr. Calhoun lectures—you will be ably instructed by a true master theologian, historian, and teacher.

New World Order

By Kenneth Feucht books 4 Comments »

DiceNWOThe New World Order, Facts and Fiction, by Mark Dice ★★★★★

Mark Dice is the guy you see on uTube interviewing people on the beach in San Diego. Typically, he will have them sign some sort of crazy petition, or ask them something quite obvious which they get wrong, such as whether Obama is a Republican or a Democrat. This book is one of his works of passion. It is an easy to read text, and displays Mark as a sensible person, and not a looney tune fearing the end of the world. It is sad that this book was published in 2010, and much of the more fearful concerns he had at that time, such as government surveillance of citizens, has really been shown to be true. It was the work of Snowden and others that left us all realizing that much of the doomsayers cries were true.

Mark uses the term “New World Order”, yet there is no such thing as a new world order. What he complains about in this book has been going on since the dawn of time. Today, we see events happening before our eyes, that often have had no good explanation. The news, which is supposed to be critical and investigatory, tends to be superficial, contrived, and predictable in their reporting. Is it any wonder that we are left in a quandary regarding figuring out what really is happening. Is is sad that the more critical Christian news agencies such as World Magazine lapse into the same errors as their secular counterparts, and offer no real alternative to the mainstream news media. Mark shows no evidence of having smoked odd substances in the past, or having his brain overheated in the sun of San Diego. He doesn’t believe in space aliens, and supra normal phenomena.

The brief outline of his book is as follows…

1. The idea of the New World Order – actually old world order, with some new intentions

2. Secret societies that tend to promote the idea of a “new world order”

3. How the “rulers” remain above the law

4. The unreliability of mainstream media in reporting what is really going on

5. The moral decline of society, seemingly encouraged from above

6. Banking

7. One world currency

8. Population control

9. Single world religion, the rise of atheistic satanism

10. Singe world dictator

11. Global police state

12. Global surveillance

13. Elimination of the right to bear arms

14. Elimination of US national sovereignty

15. Population monitoring in big brother fashion

16. Medicating the public

17. Science issues, including MK-ULTRA,  means of mind control and placing thoughts in ones’ mind

18. Global warming

He ends with the conclusion that our best defense is to start by keeping our eyes open, and knowing what’s going on. The book is brief, but believable, since much has come true since Mark wrote the book. It is not a call to escape or run in fear, but to rise and fight, and to be prepared. It is a book worth reading.
