I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

Here are two links to two articles written by men I consider friends. I consider these articles top flight and since they each deal with a theme I’m constantly returning to I post them here for your edification.

The first is by Darrell Dow on the subject of Nationalism. Darrell and another chap (Thomas Achord) recently released an Anthology on Kinism titled, “Who is my Neighbor; An Anthology In Natural Relations.” This book is nearly 700 pages long and it provides one quote after another culled from authors (both Christian and Pagan) from Ancient History to modern times, which demonstrate that the doctrines of Kinism have been what all men in all times and in all places have believed. This work is a spear through the heart of the Alienism promoted by the likes of Bojidar Marinov, Joel McDurmon, Gary North, Adam Brink, Steven Hallbrook, and most pastors in most pulpits across America on any given Sunday. I strongly encourage you to purchase this work.

Here is the link to Darrell’s article on Nationalism;


The second article I am linking to is from a friend named Stuart DiNenno. Stuart is a Southerner who needs to be listened to. We disagree on regulative principle types of issues (Stuart leans Covenanter) but on most issues we are quite compatible. In the article linked below Stuart takes aim at the worthlessness of the contemporary Reformed clergy arguing that most of these men don’t even know the dangers that their people and Christianity are facing in this zeitgeist. I could only wish I had written this piece. I agree with it 100%.


Happy Reading.

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture. Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.

One thought on “I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends”

  1. Thanks so much for these links! I just finished the piece by Stuart DiNenno and it seems to say everything I’ve been thinking for so long. I’m anxious to share it with both friends and enemies in the church. It put me in mind in many places of something Louis Marschalko (Hungarian nationalist) wrote in his book ‘The World Conquerors”:

    “National Socialism undertook to fulfill those tasks that ought to have been performed by Christianity. No doubt it would have been much better had the Christian Churches in the turbulent hours of 1919 declared war on Bolshevistic atheism, on the immorality infesting European societies, and on the corruption, defeatism, capitalistic exploitations, and Marxist class-liberation. But the Christian Churches had developed a glass-house Christianity restricted to empty prayers, [and] proved itself to be only a passive witness of historic events—backing on every occasion the actual holder of state power. During the period between the two World Wars prayers were said from both Catholic and Protestant pulpits, not so much for the living members of the Church community, as for the welfare of the ruling powers.” p. 65.
