Victims of
Educational Malpractice

If you feel like your unalienable rights to
    life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness
    are under attack,
If you feel that immorality is on the rise,
    America is headed over a cliff,
    Civilization is crumbling,

       And you are powerless to stop it...       

This website is for you!

You know that dropping your  kids off at an atheistic school is a dereliction of your duties as a parent.

But what about you?

If America's Founding Fathers could travel through time, they would say you are a victim of Educational Malpractice.

George Washington was a lifelong learner who homeschooled himself while he ran a home business and led the Continental Army in a War for Independence. In his library, he studied for an hour every morning, and an hour before bed.

What does this program cost?

The average cost of a public school education in 2013 is nearly $13,000 per year per student. By skipping "the 3 R's" (which you can quickly learn through the Ron Paul Curriculum or the Kahn Academy), twelve years of a colonial American worldview education, covering the core subjects banned by the government, can be covered in just 12 months by reading through the entire Bible and four other works which are among the most important works in the history of western civilization, listening to audio lessons on the commute to work and back home in the evening, 20 minutes each way. Then each week attend a live Q&A webinar for laser coaching and clarification.

We think this program is worth $97/month.

We are a non-profit organization. We request a monthly commitment of at least one dollar per month. But you can get started for free. Just sign up at the top of this page. Here's what we will send you. When you feel it's "worth it," you can make a tax-deductible donation.

The Three Things
George Washington Learned in School
You Did NOT

Why is it that you are not
    • an extraordinary American
    • an extraordinary Christian
    • an extraordinary Human Being?

You are a victim of Educational Malpractice.

Compared to colonial Americans, you are an ignorant barbarian. Sure, you know how to use your smartphone. But bring a 9-year-old into the 21st century from 1776, and the kid would be able to figure out how to use your computer and remote control as fast as you did. But Colonial Americans could read the Federalist Papers and debate the issues intelligently. You can't. They had the moral courage to fight against tyranny. You don't.

There were three things that America's Founding Fathers believed schools should teach, and you were deprived of all three -- by law. These three things are prescribed in America's "Organic Law," and even today can still be found in many state constitutions -- but you probably don't even know what "organic law" means.

What were the three things that every school in America was supposed to teach?

What are the three things that made America the most prosperous and admired nation in history?

What are the three things that were taken out of government-run schools in the 20th century, crippling Americans like you and me, leaving America a bankrupt and despised nation?

Colonial American One-Room Schoolhouse 2.0

Our Program is a colonial American one-room schoolhouse on the internet. Twelve years of colonial American education -- that produced people like Samuel Adams and George Washington -- distilled into a 12-month program, updated for the Internet, and ready to confront today's "post-Christian" secular world.

Religion was once deemed to be a function of the public school system. The Northwest Ordinance, which antedated the First Amendment, provided in Article III that
Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.

Incredibly, those words were written by one of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices who then went ahead and approved the removal of religion from public schools. The words are found in the 1962 case of Engel v. Vitale, in the concurring opinion of Justice William O. Douglas. The Northwest Ordinance, along with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, is part of what legal scholars call "the Organic Law" of America. The Northwest Ordinance was the blueprint for the constitutions of states admitted to the union. Many states quoted this passage verbatim, and their state constitutions acknowledge the three things that America's Founding Fathers believed were essential to a good education:

Intelligent and well-informed people know that the federal government prohibits your local public school from teaching the Bible in the way Jesus and the authors of the Bible would teach it. For the same reason, public school teachers are prohibited from teaching students that the Declaration of Independence is really true. Both documents can only be taught as archaic, irrelevant, dusty artifacts of history which people in the distant past believed were true.

Because religion and Christian morality have been banned from public schools by the government, knowledge has also been banned.

Students cannot gain "knowledge" in a chaotic, noisy, disruptive classroom. But students who do not know Christian religion and morality think they are their own god. They don't have to obey school authorities, and they don't have to respect the learning environment of fellow students. So when the U.S. Supreme Court removed religion from public schools, it removed morality (because morality is religion externalized), and thereby removed knowledge. In a class full of would-be gods, the presence of one student who knows more than the others is an offence. It hurts the fragile "self-esteem" of a wanna-be god, and so all students must be equally stupid.

Knowledge depends on religion and morality.

This is why the HomeschoolingforAdults program will give you a complete worldview makeover by building on a Christian foundation: "religion, morality, and knowledge."

If America's Founding Fathers could travel through time and study these three things, they would be horrified:

  • Our Government
  • Our Schools
  • You

America's Founders would say

  • Our government is a tyranny, and you have a duty to abolish it (according to the Declaration of Independence). America's Founders would say Washington D.C. is the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of mankind. Seriously. It's that bad.
  • Our schools are an abomination. The central purpose for which public schools were created 400 years ago has been banned by the government.
  • You are not a real American. The average colonial American 17-year old in 1776 knew more about what it takes to make America a prosperous and virtuous nation than the average American adult in 2015. The average colonial American teenager would be horrified at the things American adults tolerate in 2015: Tyrannypublic immoralityidiocyUnbelievable.

They would say there are five books you need to read if you wish to become

  •  an extraordinary American
  •  an extraordinary Christian
  •  an extraordinary Human Being

These five subjects were taught in America's public schools 300 years ago:
  1. The Bible
  2. Religion
  3. Morality
  4. "Knowledge" -- The Spirit of Liberty; Providence; the way the world works
  5. "Novus Ordo Seclorum" (this is the motto on the official United States Seal. You probably don't know what the Latin means, and you certainly don't know why it is such a practical concept that you should think about it every day.)

Here are the five textbooks that you will read in the 365-day HomeschoolingforAdults program:

  1. The Bible
  2. The Westminster Standards
  3. The best textbook on Capitalism: How to conduct business in an ethical manner.
  4. The most important documents on the connection between religion and government
    • "where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty"
      2 Corinthians 3:17
    • "proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof"
      Leviticus 25:10, inscribed on "The Liberty Bell"
  5. The Biblical basis for optimism: the future of peace, progress and prosperity.

 George Washington's Study

Here's what you need to know:

George Washington spent an hour each morning and an hour each evening in "private devotions," as his daughter Nelly Parke Custis testified. These were not fluffy, syrupy, or escapist "devotionals." George Washington was prayerfully discerning the blueprints for the creation of a new nation. His devotionals were not in a chapel, but in a library. 

Jared Sparks was President of Harvard University. He also assembled the definitive collection of George Washington's papers. In Volume XII of these writings, Sparks delved into the religious character of George Washington, and included numerous letters written by the friends, associates, and family of Washington which testified of his religious character. Nelly Custis' letter, which Sparks requested, gave these details:

It was his custom to retire to his library at nine or ten o'clock where he remained an hour before he went to his chamber. He always rose before the sun and remained in his library until called to breakfast.

According to the Library of Congress Website, George Washington was motivated by the Vine & Fig Tree vision revealed in the Bible:

No theme appears more frequently in the writings of Washington than his love for his land. The diaries are a monument to that concern. In his letters he referred often, as an expression of this devotion and its resulting contentment, to an Old Testament passage. After the Revolution, when he had returned to Mount Vernon, he wrote the Marquis de Lafayette on Feb. 1, 1784:

"At length my Dear Marquis I am become a private citizen on the banks of the Potomac, & under the shadow of my own Vine & my own Fig-tree."

This phrase occurs at least 11 times in Washington's letters.

"And Judah and Israel dwelt safely, every man under his vine and under his fig tree" (2 Kings 18:31).

Peter Lillback, author of a 1,000-page study of Washington's life and thought, has found more than 40 references to the  “Vine and Fig Tree” vision in Washington's Papers.

Many other American Founders
wrote of this ideal. "Vine & Fig Tree" is the original "American Dream."

Our home page features an audio introduction.

It is also a phrase from the prophet Micah, the idea of everyone owning property and enjoying the fruits of their labor without fear of theft or political oppression, of sitting peacefully under your "Vine & Fig Tree."

The heart of the HomeschoolingforAdults program is the daily reading of the five most important works in the history of Western Civilization, in a prayerful quest for the blueprints of a "Vine & Fig Tree" society.

Public schools in America were the product of the Protestant Reformation.
Their purpose was to teach the Bible.
Teaching the Bible would inculcate three things:

  • Religion
  • Morality
  • The "Spirit of Liberty."

If you see America crumbling, but feel powerless to stop it, the feeling of powerlessness you feel is your inability to diagnose America's problem correctly.
The doctor cannot write the correct prescription without an accurate diagnosis.

The reason you don't understand what's really wrong with America
and the reason why you are not equipped to be an effective agent for change is because you are

A Victim of
Educational Malpractice.

The U.S. Federal Government has banned the core curriculum prescribed by America's Founding Fathers for America's public schools. Education was primarily religious, not secular. America was a Christian nation, not a "secular" nation. If America's Founders could travel through time and have a conversation with you, they would say you are

  • not a Real American
  • not a Genuine Christian
  • A Pathetic Human Being

We're providing a homeschooling program for adult victims of educational malpractice.
We don't teach "the 3 R's" (reading, writing, arithmetic). If you can't read, we will read the lessons to you. Just listen to the MP3.
We teach the Christian Worldview that America's Founding Fathers were taught in America's Public Schools.

Using the internet, twelve years of a colonial American one-room schoolhouse can be compressed into a twelve-month program. Twenty minutes in the morning, twenty minutes in the evening, while you commute to work. Or exercise. Or wash the dishes.

Our guarantee is simple. If you complete our assignments,

you will experience

 Extraordinary  Christian Coaching

Being a Christian is extraordinary.

Being a Christian means two things:

  1. Loving, obeying, worshiping Christ
  2. With all your heart, mind, soul, and strength.

No human being can do this. Only God can take a descendant of Adam and Eve and make that rebel a Christian. Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden in the very presence of God, and they flipped Him the bird. As a result, all their descendants were born rebels.
Except for Jesus.
His Father in Heaven is in the business of adopting descendants of Adam and Eve into the Holy Family.

3Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ for the spiritual blessings that Christ has brought us from heaven! 4Before the world was created, God had Christ choose us to live with Him and to be His holy and innocent and loving people. 5God was loving and kind and decided that Christ would choose us to be God's own adopted children. 6God was very kind to us because of the Son He dearly loves, and so we should praise God.
Ephesians 1:3-6 CEV

This is extraordinary.

Further, in order to adopt us, God kills us and then we are born a second time.

Many people who call themselves Christians were never predestined to love Jesus with all their heart. They're just faking it. Being chosen by God for a second birth is extraordinary.

This means being ordinary is a sin.

You need to become extraordinary.

The command to love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength means being moderate, ordinary, or lukewarm is a sin.

• Ordinary "Christians" love other things with all their heart.
• They study other things with their mind, or they disengage their minds in front of the TV.
• They're too tired to get up a little earlier in the morning -- like George Washington did -- before he dodged bullets all day.

A True Christian is an "extremist."

If the Apostles and other great saints were to follow you around for a week, what would they think of the decisions you make, the candidates you vote for, and the people and actions you tolerate?

Matthew 7:21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.
22 On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name?'
23 Then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.'

How can Jesus justifiably call someone an "evildoer" if he prophesies, casts out demons, and maybe even heals a few people? And he does all this in the name of the Lord??

Have YOU ever cast out a demon or healed anyone? What have YOU done that makes you think you're a Christian?

Do your friends, neighbors, and co-workers think of you as an "extremist," or just an average, normal ordinary person?

Extraordinary American | Extraordinary Christian | Extraordinary Human Being

Jesus said "average," "moderate," and "normal" makes Him sick:

"I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth."
Revelation 3:15-16

If you consider yourself a "moderate" rather than an "extremist," then you would place yourself at point "M" on the chart below:


Middle of the Road


Capitalism, Free Enterprise, Prosperity Apathy Tyranny, socialism, poverty and mass death
Theocracy "Secular" Atheism
Love Indifference Hate

Does being "middle of the road" sound like something that pleases God?

While there's something superficially impressive about our computers, televisions, microwave ovens, and other technology, our pursuit of these trinkets reeks of a fundamental self-centeredness, not necessarily a God-centeredness.

Do you recall Jesus saying this:

Matthew 25:41 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave Me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took Me not in: naked, and ye clothed Me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited Me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall He answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

When was the last time you visited someone in prison?

Jesus said many things like this that offended even those who were His closest disciples:

John 6:66 From that time many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with Him.

And of course, the religious leaders of His day wanted Jesus -- "the Great Teacher and Healer" -- put to death!

Are you sure that you would be a follower of Jesus if He were here today? Are you sure you wouldn't side with the authorities and experts who denounced Jesus and His followers? Are you willing to be a part of a small minority, rather than the vast majority?

In 1892 the United States Supreme Court declared that America was a Christian nation.


If George Washington and other signers of the Constitution were to follow you around for a week, what would they think of the decisions you make, the candidates you vote for, and the people and actions you tolerate?

And for the support of this Declaration,
with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence,
we mutually pledge to each other
our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

What have you pledged of your substance to preserve the things that made America great: "Liberty Under God."

What material things have you sacrificed to preserve the spiritual foundations of America?

What "Valley Forge" have you endured, or are you prepared to endure?

Luke 9
61 Another also said, "I will follow You, Lord; but first permit me to say good-bye to those at home."
62 But Jesus said to him, "No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."

Are you a good Christian?

Are you "fit for the Kingdom?”

Not everyone is called to endure what the Apostle Paul endured, but what are you willing to endure?

2 Corinthians 11:24 Five times I have received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one.
25 Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I received a stoning. Three times I was shipwrecked; for a night and a day I was adrift at sea;
26 on frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from bandits, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers and sisters;
27 in toil and hardship, through many a sleepless night, hungry and thirsty, often without food, cold and naked.

Would you be willing to lose your microwave oven, or your television, if that were necessary to follow Christ?

Would you LIKE to be the kind of American that George Washington would be proud of?

Would you LIKE to be the kind of Christian that would please God? Hebrews 13:16, 21

Surprisingly, it really doesn't take much to follow Christ. Jesus says His burden is light, and His yoke is easy (Matthew 11:30). John says His commandments are not grievous (1 John 5:3).

We have to work against the voice of our conscience in order to keep up with the Joneses instead of following Christ. (Acts 26:14)

Many Americans say they are "independent" and don't believe in "yokes." But the question is not WHETHER we will be under a yoke, but WHOSE yoke we will be under. Wouldn't you rather be under a yoke that's easy? Wouldn't you rather be the slave of a Master who desires only your best? Why accept being an illiterate and dependent slave of a "fearful master?"

What it takes is allegiance. Total commitment. You must be willing to renounce the old country and declare your allegiance to a new Kingdom.

It’s astonishing how many people today are unwilling to make this commitment.

It’s unbelievable how many people prefer the "security" of dictatorship and poverty over the "animating contest" of liberty and prosperity.

I'm willing to bet you $5,000 that the Apostles and America's Founding Fathers would not be impressed with you.

In fact, I think I can prove from the pages of the Bible that you're a wimp and a disgrace to the ideals they bravely fought to protect. They wouldn't consider you a good Christian at all.

I'll bet you.

Hebrews 11:32 And what more should I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets--
33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions,
34 quenched raging fire, escaped the edge of the sword, won strength out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.
35 Women received their dead by resurrection. Others were tortured, refusing to accept release, in order to obtain a better resurrection.
36 Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment.
37 They were stoned to death, they were sawn in two, they were killed by the sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, persecuted, tormented--
38 of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground.

Just thinking about these great Christians makes you realize I'm right, doesn't it?

You don't realize how right you are. You're a disgrace as a Christian. And I can prove it from page after page of Scriptures that haven't been heard in government schools for over 100 years.

Let me win this bet.

Answer these questions in privacy. Pray about it. I will prove that you're you're a rotten Christian. I will prove that you've been dumbed-down by government-regulated schools, and know less about what it means to be a great Christian than the average third-grader knew 100 years ago.

You'll admit that I've proven my theory, and you'll admit that you lost the bet -- but won a great deal of knowledge about what it means to be a great Christian.

Then I'll show you how to be a great Christian. Practical steps you can take every day, just a few minutes a day, to make you a truly great Christian. One that would have been applauded by great Christians of the past, and that will be admired by your children and great-grandchildren. You'll gladly pay me minimum wage for this program.

Is $5,000 too much to pay for a program like this?

Let's look at the costs:

Suppose you make $20.00 an hour. Chances are you make more than this, or you wouldn't have read this far. You're highly educated. You're a professional. If you're a lawyer you bill your time at more than $100/hr.

At $20.00/hr, one hour a day comes to more than $7000/yr.

This is truly the most expensive program you can enroll in.

But you'll think it's worth it.

If you're like most superficial Christians these days, you wouldn't value this program if it were free. But if you pay big bucks for it, you'll value it more. You'll have an incentive to take the time, and develop the discipline to use this program like it's meant to be used.

And if you're smart (unlike most Christians), you'll realize that even if it were free, the newsletter is still costing you -- in time.

"I sacrificed $7,000 this year and paid $5,000 more to enroll in this program and follow its recommendations" you'll tell your friends. "But it was worth every penny."

I'm confident you're going to get your friends to enroll too.

You'll start working on its recommendations with them.

During lunch at work, over coffee and doughnuts after church, maybe on a weekend retreat.

$13./hr from you and your friends will help me pay my rent, and my children will live in a better America.

You are a victim of
Educational Malpractice.

You have been systematically deprived of the three things that every single person who signed the Constitution would say are a necessary part of a basic American education. These three things are specifically mentioned in America's Organic Law. But you were never taught that America's Organic Law consists of the most fundamental charters of America's government. Now that you know what the "Organic Law" is, you still don't know what fundamental documents it contains. Article III of one of them says this:

Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged. The utmost good faith shall always be observed towards the Indians; their lands and property shall never be taken from them without their consent . . . .

The Organic Law of America not only recognizes our dependence on and duty towards God, but specifies where we should learn about our Creator (religion), the rights with which He has endowed us, and our duties toward Him and our fellow man (morality).

Today, our schools and government are "secular" (atheistic) and confiscating property from others without their consent -- armed robbery -- is the heart and soul of our vast "entitlement" social programs. You were cheated out of an education which began with "Thou shalt not steal" and "Thou shalt not kill."

The Christian Religion and Christian morality were to be taught in public schools.

Even though Justice Douglas concurred in Engel v. Vitale, the case which removed Christianity from public schools in the early 1960's, he was honest enough to admit that

Religion was once deemed to be a function of the public school system.

Justice Douglas then quoted the Article above. Then he proceeded to ignore the law he swore to uphold, and removed "religion and morality" from public schools.

Soon after that, knowledge was removed from public schools, because when some kids have knowledge, that hurts the "self-esteem" of those who don't. Away with grades, away with knowledge! America's youth no longer score #1 on international tests.

The average teenager in 1776 knew more about what it means to be a great American, a great Christian, and a great Human Being than you do. Transport the average teenager from 1776 to our time and that teenager could figure out how to use your Blackberry, your remote control, and drive your SUV in a matter of days, but it would take you months, maybe years, to learn as much about geography, morality, history, religion, political science, virtue, and develop the habits of character which the average American possessed in 1776.

Reading the Bible is the first step in our year-long program to impose a colonial American education on you. If you already know how to read and write, the Internet now makes it possible for you to experience the same childhood education that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock experienced. Their education made it inevitable that they would abolish the government -- a government which they described as a "tyranny."

  • "Public schools" were created to teach everyone the Bible. Public schools were the product of the Protestant Reformation, and its banner, "Sola Scriptura" -- "Scripture Alone." [Proof]
  • The Bible has been banned from public schools by the U.S. Federal Government. The feds now prohibit public schools from teaching the Bible as its authors would have taught it and as America's Founders taught it: as the Word of God.
  • The Federal Government prohibits your local public school teachers from teaching students that the Declaration of Independence (1776) is really true. Students can only be taught that it is an archaic historical artifact, and that those who wrote it believed it was true. [Proof]
  • The reason the Declaration cannot be taught as truth is because it is based on a Biblical worldview.
  • As a result of banning the Declaration of Independence from government-run schools, and ever since banning the Bible, the U.S. federal government has become the most evil and most dangerous entity on planet earth. In my lifetime, the U.S. federal government has killed, crippled, or made homeless tens of millions of innocent non-combatant civilians around the world. The U.S. federal government imposes pro-abortion and pro-homosexual policies on weaker nations. The United States Federal Government is the enemy of Mankind. Sound crazy?
  • Every single person who signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution would say that the U.S. federal government is a greater and more evil "tyranny" than the one they saw governing the American colonies. The tyranny which they abolished.
  • The Bible prohibits the violent, armed overthrow of governments. The American Revolution was a violation of these Biblical prohibitions (e.g., Romans 13:1-7).
  • America is not a "City upon a Hill." Americans -- individuals like you -- must be that "City upon a Hill." Jesus was not talking to nations, but to individuals like you (Matthew 5:13-16).

These truths are life-changing.
These truths are nation-changing.
These truths are world-changing.

An "Irresistible" Paradigm Shift

You hear that phrase (“paradigm shift”) thrown around a lot these days. Everybody wants their idea to be the next "paradigm shift." Paradigm-shifters are now mainstream. Vine & Fig Tree represents a true break with the status quo, a change as momentous as that described by Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, upon hearing of Locke's rejection of the doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings: 

Never before had I heard the authority of kings called in question. I had been taught to consider them nearly as essential to political order as the sun is to the order of our solar system.

Vine & Fig Tree really is a new "paradigm," a "Copernican revolution," a radical way of looking at politics and society. It is one step beyond the radical vision that motivated America's Founding Fathers. It is a vision so old that it appears to be utterly unprecedented.

The vision of Vine & Fig Tree gives energy and hope to those who work for it. It inspires dedicated action. 

Lawrence Cremin writes:

American Education: The National Experience, 1783-1876
NY: Harper & Row, 1980, p. 114-15.

For Rush, who was present in the Congress as a representative of Pennsylvania, the events surrounding the creation of the Republic marked nothing less than a turning point in the course of human history. "I was animated constantly," he reflected in later years, "by a belief that I was acting for the benefit of the whole world, and of future ages, by assisting in the formation of new means of political order and general happiness."11
         11. The Autobiography of Benjamin Rush, edited by George W. Corner (Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1948), p.161.

Vine & Fig Tree's mission is to contribute to the Glory of God and the greater happiness of mankind. The vision of Vine & Fig Tree will animate future leaders and captivate the hearts and minds of many.

Dr. Rush speaks of "a turning point," which is to speak of a turning  from something to something else. From what should we turn? To what should we aspire? 

I believe we must move

  • From a world of priests and princes ruling over the immature and irresponsible, a world which is simultaneously "secular" and suffused with a host of pagan faiths
  • To a world of self-governing families in which all believers are priests and kings under Christ, where the knowledge of the LORD covers the earth as the waters cover the sea.

Many people balked at the "turning point" which the Declaration of Independence represented. Many will balk at Vine & Fig Tree -- it is the overthrowing of ideas which many have believed are as essential to social order or the Christian faith "as the sun is to the order of our solar system."

The marketing challenge is to make this vision a "turning point" in the history of mankind. We want to make this vision "irresistible."

But what one person finds "irresistible," another finds repugnant. A member of ISIS does not find anything "irresistible" in the message of Jesus Christ: "Love your enemies." Can any marketing guru re-work the "copy" to make the message "irresistible" to a violent barbarian without changing the meaning of the message?

Our goal is to remove language which is unnecessarily offensive and to state the message clearly in a way that appeals to the "Image of God" in every human being, and to "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" which are written on the stoniest of hearts.
