Happy 100th Birthday To Indiana Wesleyan University (aka — Marion College) Part IV

I’ve been doing my bit to help Indiana Wesleyan University celebrate their 100th Anniversary. When I attended what was then named “Marion College” the ramshackle of a campus was a mere 57 years old. The campus in the 43 years since has had a massive facelift so that when I returned my one and only time in 2010 the campus was a complete maze to me of new everything. When I attended we had one decent building (The Science Hall). Everything else found me meeting for classes in the basements of an old chapel, and a falling down women’s dorm, or in a room the size of a closet in the Library. However, I was 18 years old and having never been to a real campus I didn’t realize how much I was missing.

Those years are so far removed now but the memories remain fresh. I think I’ll provide a few vignettes in this entry in no particular order. Before I do, I would like to remind the reader that I’ve already confessed that I was hardly the model student my first 5 semesters there. I probably failed more classes than I passed in that time and was always connected to campus hijinks, even when not guilty.

** When finally on the cusp of graduating the Assistant Registrar was so in shock that I was actually graduating she decided to vociferously argue with me about my credits when filing my paperwork. Looking back, I can’t say as I blame her as I was just as shocked. She was a close relative of one of the chaps I hung with at Marion and I had been in her home on several occasions through the years. She probably rightly assessed over the years that I had been a bad influence on her relative and so may have been put out that she was going to be wrong about me being a bad boy who would never graduate. She was most upset that I was graduating with three majors and was quite insistent that my graduating with three majors was not possible. Now, in this case I was merely the messenger boy giving to her what my academic advisor had given me to give to her but she was having none of it. She kept yelling at me saying some version of, “This isn’t possible.” Now normally, I would have risen to such argumentative female baiting but being a Senior on the cusp of graduating I was now mature (sarcasm) and I held my fire and just kept saying, “You’ll have to take that up with Dr. Martin.” This only infuriated the poor gal even more and worked like stoking the engine on an old locomotive. We sat there conversing for 15 minutes exchanging those set of ideas back and forth. She would stutter and spit our that my credits couldn’t give me three majors and my response in every new round was “You’ll have to take that up with Dr. Martin.” Finally she took what my academic advisor had given me to give to her and hurled her parting shot on my way out the door, “We’ll see about this.”

I never heard another word and graduated with my disputed three majors until a few years later when having to secure my college records to ship off in my grad school application. Then I noticed the old gal had gotten the last word as she defiantly scrawled on my academic record which dutifully recorded my three majors the word “unique.” Three years later I got quite the chuckle over that realizing that though she had the satisfaction of putting her mark on my academic record that nobody would ever care about her scrawling the word “unique,” over the record. I had my three majors and all she could do was raise a protest nobody would ever care about.

** While at Marion I managed to make a Brit named Bernie very angry with me. Bernie was probably 7 years or so older than most college students and Bernie was at Marion only one year. Bernie was like Melchizedek inasmuch as he showed up and left without much of a trace. I don’t even remember his last name now. His look was very distinct though. He was about 5’8 and slight in build. He sported a handlebar mustache and with a receding hairline still managed to wear his auburn hair down to his shoulder with a curly perm type style. Add to that that Bernie was in need of dentistry work on his front teeth and a very distinct accent and Bernie cut a sui generis swath among us Yanks.

Anyways, Bernie got royally put out with me as he became convinced I was guilty of getting water on a major term paper of his. (This was before the days when you could just print out another copy. If you dog ate your paper you had to re-type the whole thing.) As a result Bernie demanded reparations and his idea of reparations was a 3 round 3 minute a round boxing match. It seemed Bernie was a trained boxer. I tried to beg out with the excuse that I didn’t own a set of boxing gloves but Bernie comforted me with the observation that he had an extra pair that would fit me just fine. Bernie wouldn’t take “no” for an answer and it got to the point that my 18 year old machismo was being called into question if I would not give him satisfaction in this manner.

Now, keep in mind I had never strapped on a pair of boxing gloves in my life (and haven’t since) and knew nothing about boxing accept what I had seen on TV. I was fit though and at 18 I was slight and so quick enough. So, I finally acquiesced in order to provide satisfaction to Bernie’s injured honor and so as to avoid having my manhood called into question. The date was set and it was decided the venue would take place in the 2nd floor of the Williams Hall dorm in the all purpose TV room.

I don’t mind telling you that I was unsettled. I was convinced that this Brit Boxer was going to beat my head below my shoulders. Word began to spread on campus and the next thing I know this boxing match was being billed on campus as the second coming of Ali vs. Frazier. People were coming up to me and patting me on the back saying, “I can’t wait to watch this.” (Which translated meant; “I can’t wait to watch you get beat to a bloody pulp.”) A betting pool had been established and the wise money was not on McAtee. The smart money was on Bernie in a KO in the first round. Another chap who had a background in boxing was found to be the Referee.

Finally the evening arrived. A friend, at the last second volunteered to be my corner man. He figured out that since I didn’t have a mouth guard (like Bernie did) I should use some duct tape for a mouth guard. Another chap named Kelly (a midget) somehow also ended up working my corner. Even now looking back there is a certain surreal quality to it all. A guy who had never worn a pair of boxing gloves in his life with a midget cheering him on in is corner going out to fight this 25 year old boxing aficionado with duct tape in his mouth as a mouth guard. I felt like the swimmer in Jaws about to be introduced to the Great White Shark.

Bernie never laid a glove on me. Over three rounds he kept expecting me to wear out and to quit dancing in the ring. I didn’t. He kept advancing and I kept retreating but jabbing. I was so tired at one point that people, including Larry Goins (he was affectionately known to his classmates as “Harry Groins”), were yelling at me to make a fist — I was so tired that my hands were just limp in the gloves. There was one point when Bernie finally had me cornered but I was quicker with the left hook (I’m a southpaw) than he was with his roundhouse and he was staggered as I connected … and I was staggered that I had staggered him. The crowded room was in bedlam calling on me to finish him off but I just wanted to survive and after the 8 count just waited for the bell.

When the three rounds were over Bernie wanted to go three more but I had met my obligation and I was already taking the gloves off. The judges called the fight “a draw,” but I wasn’t the one who sported a closed black -n- blue eye for the next three weeks.

** A bit of irony to close this entry.

In 1980-1981 Marion College Basketball was a force. It was a delight to the student body because Marion had seldom been good at much of anything in terms of sports the years I attended. The student body really got into the ballgames spending hours making confetti to throw at the games while listening to Lynyrd Skynryd or Molly Hatchet or whoever found their way on the turntable. The Basketball team cruised through the season piling up wins. The fan antics in the stands were crazy. There was this one chap on the Basketball team who had obtained the nick-name “Twinky.” He was the first guy of the bench as a sub and so a valuable player. He was an inside – outside guy at 6’7. At one game he was introduced as checking into the game and suddenly from the stands came a barrage of unwrapped Hostess Twinkies flying though the air in honor of “Twinky.” They had to take a delay in order to clean all the cream filling off the court.

Halftimes could be a riot as well. We had a student who worked the halftime shows and would play Eric Clapton’s hit song “Cocaine.” Every time Clapton would sing the word “Cocaine” the student body would belt out COCAINE. I doubt that very many of those students had ever seen a line of cocaine. However, that habit earned a letter to the editor in the Newspaper from one of the Welseyan adults writing how shocked she was to hear the student body shouting out COCAINE. It was a defiant youth thing themselves enjoying the acerbity of a Wesleyan College student body belting out the lyrics to Eric Clapton’s “Cocaine.”

Anyway… here’s the irony. Two of the star players lived as roommates in the dorms. From their room their consistently emanated the sweet and pungent aroma of Mary Jane. Everyone knew that they were “toking in the boys room.” It was an open secret. This would have been rather insignificant except that at the very end of this championship caliber year nearly the whole team was kicked off the team because the team was found out to have attended a rather raucous party. The irony was of the four players who weren’t kicked off the team two of them were the chaps who were partying every night in the student dorm with their sweet doobies.

There is an epilogue to this story. One of the guys kicked off the team — a Senior who was a league all-star didn’t forget. Upon graduation, when given his degree he paused right their on the stage, took his mortarboard cap off and winged it into the audience. By that time his out of town girlfriend had climbed on the stage and was giving him a huge smooch to the chagrin of the gathered Wesleyans.

I never heard anything of my friend Dick ever again.

But that man was magic on a Basketball court.




Skousen & McAtee on the New Communist Man

“He (Marx) visualized a regimented breed of Pavolovian men whose minds could be triggered into immediate action by signals from their Masters. He wanted a race of men who would no longer depend upon free will, ethics, morals or conscience for guidance. Perhaps w/o quite realizing it he was setting out to create a race of human beings conditioned to think like criminals.”

W. Cleon Skousen
The Naked Communist — pg. 1-2


** I read this book about a decade ago but one of the folks in the Church wanted to do a book study on it so I will be skimming it again for the book study. One can never be too familiar with this content.

Note that in order to do this Marx had to believe with the behaviorist psychologist Pavlov that man’s nature was moldable and so did not have a set nature. Marx believed that man was plastic and could be molded into any image he desired. This lack of belief in man having a set nature explains why he believed he could mold what later became called, “The New Communist Man.” This all is contrary to Christianity which teaches that man does indeed have a set nature and in Christianity that is called the “sin nature.”

We should note though that if man refuses Christianity and the ability to have one’s sin nature redeemed then we must say that Marx is absolutely correct. Man without Christ has a sin nature and the Marxist (or any one else) can indeed social engineer fallen man in any direction he desires. Man apart from Christ is a being that is just waiting to either social engineer or to be socially engineered. Only the Biblical Christian can resist this opting to engineered by God’s inspired and inerrant Word.

Consider also that if man no longer has ethics or morals then by definition that man is a criminal. Man who does not believe in transcendent ethics or morals is a man who has no category for right and wrong. This is the definition of a sociopathic criminal. This is also why Marxists are NEVER to be trusted. You simply cannot trust someone who really believes that there are no absolutes. You cannot enter into treaties with them. You cannot trust them “man to man.” You can not think of “the better angels of their nature.” The committed (and even uncommitted) are utter moral reprobates. This is a point that Dr. Fred Schwarz teases out in his book, “You Can Trust the Communists to be Communists.”

Don’t miss the idea of “regimented race of men.” What this means is that Marx desired a race of men who were all the same. He wanted all men absolutely leveled. All distinctions would be wiped out. That is what “regimented” means in the quote above.

Finally, Skousen is far to generous to suggest that Marx didn’t realize what he was doing. If Marx was anything Marx was epistemologically self-conscious. He knew what kind of man he was creating.

Wuhan Virus As Religion



Man is a hopelessly religious creature who, even when in denial of owning a religion or even when damning all religions, betrays an violent allegiance to religion. This is no different with the Wuhan Virus mythic narrative. The ChiCom virus has become a religion that is being wildly embraced by the West in order to provide meaning, ritual, and protection from the animistic cosmic forces that seek to cast the viral evil eye on people who don’t fall in line with the Covid narrative religion.

In Animistic cultures people seek to satisfy the gods by offering up the proper attitude of respect and deference to the gods. Animists live in constant mortal fear of what the assorted gods of forests, streams, and animals can do to them and in order to ward off evil it is characteristic for the true believer to carry with them a totem to ward off the evil that would otherwise be done to them without the totem.

Usually totems are tribe or clan unique. However, as the great effort is to congeal the whole globe into one giant tribe the result is that all men across the globe have been given a new totem to ward off evil. That new totem, embraced by all men as a symbol that is believed to ward of evil is the mask. And just as the non-animistic world understood that the totem had no inherent power so the non-animist today realizes that the mask is total pagan gibberish even while understanding at the same time that the totem serves as a psychological crutch that is seen as life saving by the animist trusting in it. So, the mask has become nothing but a animistic totem that has no objective power in it but nonetheless is seen as having great power because it is connected to the great god of science who has promised that if the mask is always kept on evil can be kept at bay. We notice here the irony that Science has become melded with animism. Who could have guessed?

Also consider that the temporal purpose of all religions is control. In the Christian religion control is needed because man is by nature a sinner. As such the Christian religion turns to God’s Word to teach man how to control himself in a God-honoring manner. Indeed, control is so much a part of the Christian religion that all Christians as those who have the Spirit of God as marked by “self-control.” This new form of religio-Scientifc Animism likewise exists to the end of controlling men. The difference between Christianity and all other religions is that Christianity teaches a control that is internal before external while all other religions including our current “Maskianity” exerts external control by the machinations of some agency outside of man, most normally the State. The mask is not only the new totem of NWO man it is also the sign of control as exercised by the witch-doctors of the New World Order. Just as Muslim women are controlled by Muslim men via the wearing of the burqua so the Globalist elite will control the New World Order man by the mask.

With the requirement of the mask the God-State is demonstrating its sovereignty and absolute control over the masses. This control will eventually morph into other areas. Eventually the NWO man will be told by the Globalist elites they can remove their totems as long as they take the NWO witch-doctor’s magic potion vaccine. This control will extend to NWO man being convinced that he must accept a guaranteed income as coming from the state since it is so Wuhan dangerous in the outside world. The mask is the first step in turning Western man into absolute grass feeding sheep. |

Of course when the personal God of the Bible is surrendered for impersonal gods the result is always the elimination of the mannishness of man. Man himself becomes an impersonal being who has no meaning. This has been typical wherever we find the rise of Revolution. In France it was the ubiquitous “citoyen.” Among the Bolsheviks it was “comrade.” Among the Maoists it was the ominpresent “Mao suit.” All of these were Revolutionary techniques to level man into a impersonal polyglot thus more easily controlled. The same is happening with the mask. In a crowd of mask-wearers one person is much the same as every other person. Now add to this the fact that the RNA alteration intended for us in the vaccines which has the hoped for result of homogenizing the human herd and the NWO inches ever more forward in achieving the Revolutionary dream of absolute leveling.

Of course a impersonal humankind means the loss of familial love, the loss of the ties that bind among kith and kin, and the loss of our humanity. However, that is the effect of all religions besides the Christian religions. All religions, besides Christianity ends up losing the many for the sake of the one undifferentiated mass with the consequence that genuine love is lost and replaced with the power that bespeaks control.

If we desire to continue to tease out the religion that is the ChiCom virus we find that the chief sin in this religion is fellowship. Note the absolute frenzy that is being pursued by the elite to keep people apart. The mask is obvious. There is also social distancing. There are the recent orders coming from some states to limit family gatherings during the Christian holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. There is the insistence on washing hands – a habit often typical of people who are social misfits (Think Howard Hughes). There is the strict limitations in many states of gathering for worship. None of this bunkum has anything to do with the “disease” but it sure is handy in alienating people one from another. Clearly the god-state is communicating that human contact is sin.

The sad thing is that so many churches and clergy have exchanged the truth of serving God for the lie of serving the God state and so have themselves become agents of control for this new Covid religion. “Christian” Clergy have genuinely become the enemy of Christianity and Biblical Christians and they are enemies of God by invoking God’s word for their aberrant and bastardized faith. They are rabbits bowing to the God-states demand that they cancel worship of the thrice Holy God. They are withholding the bread and wine – body and blood – of Christ from their flock. They are silencing the voices of God’s saints raising praise to Him in song. They are keeping their thirsty saints away from the proclamation of God’s Word. They may be genuinely deceived but that does not make them any less wolves in sheep’s clothing. I would not want to be them when the day of the great assize arrives.

The Wuhan Virus is the new religion of the New World Order man and this religion is the wedge that will open the door for every black as Luciferian night reality that these sons of Belial have in store for us.

But keep in mind saints of God and so be of good cheer… throughout the centuries many a hammer of evil has worn itself out on the anvil of Biblical Christianity. God is not mocked and He will not allow His Kingdom to be conquered.

Dr. P. J. Hoedemaker; The First Step on the Road to Reformation

“The first step on the road to Reformation is the recovery of the normal relations of Church and State. As soon as one realizes this, there awakens in him the zeal that otherwise slumbers.”

Dr. P. J. Hoedemaker (1839-1910)
Dutch Theologian
Opponent to Abraham Kuyper in Kuyper’s gutting BCF Article 36


The FIRST step on the road to Reformation!

Catch what Hoedemaker is saying. Hoedemaker is saying there will be no Reformation that does not start with getting the relation between Church and State right. Why is this the case? Because a State not pinioned on Christian principles with Magistrates who rule consistent with God’s law is a State that is seeking to undermine every Christian principle in the social-order as a whole. One cannot have a Christian social-order while at the same time having a State that is operating upon the basis of some other religion. (And if the State is not operating upon the foundation of a Christian world and life view then it is operating upon the foundation of a anti-Christ world and life view.)

Another aspect of this to consider is that when the “normal relations of Church and State” are askew what this by necessity means is that the State is going to have a disproportionate negative influence on the behalf of some false god. This is especially true in a social-order like ours where the civil state is in everything from our corn-flakes to our tampons to our schools to our colonoscopy. When the “normal relations of Church and State” are not proper in a social-order as top down as ours the result will be that the Church will eventually go as pagan as the State. This is because it remains true that crown and miter always walk together. My point here is heard in the mouth of A. A. Hodge when he wrote,

If the national life in general is organized upon non-Christian principles, the churches which are embraced within the universal assimilating power of that nation will not long be able to preserve their integrity.”

~ A. A. Hodge / 1823 – 1886

As the State here now is the agency which is most responsible for the organization of national life in general in is inevitable that if the “normal relations of Church and State” are out of whack so that the State is beholden to some other God than the God of the Bible the effect will be the paganization eventually of even the Church. We are seeing this today in spades as the visible Church today is increasingly a pale reflection of the theology that drives the State; to wit, Cultural Marxism.

So, Hoedemaker is exactly right. Until the Church and State relationship is once again founded on the absolute authority of Jesus Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords those desiring Reformation in their country are just pissing in the wind.

McAtee Exposes R. Scott Clark’s Recent Attack On Christian America, Theonomy, and Postmillennialism

Over here R2K aficionado and Cemetery Professor Dr. R. Scott Clark argues that America was never a Christian nation.

https://heidelblog.net/2020/11/the-strange-persistence-of-theocracy-in-america-1/?fbclid=IwAR3A3jsFujwuvozT5YJrwDh_s5ZJGRdsSEVgnpvYKyxWUUys4Wiwtzv3_uE

Now I will interact with this a wee bit but it should be noted that the position of R2K in general is that it is not possible for nations to be Christian. As such, we really are in “Captain Obvious” territory where we find a guy who holds that it is not possible for any nation to be Christian argues that these united States were never a Christian nation. What next Scott — an argument that water is wet?

1.) Clark argues that it is a myth that America was founded as a Christian nation. He also argues that it is a myth that America was founded as a non-Christian nation as is pushed by the ridiculous 1619 Project. So, Scott has argued here that America was founded as neither a Christian nation nor as a non-Christian nation. This may cause the poor person who doesn’t have a Ph.D to pop their eyes and ask, “Wait a minute. How can it be the case that America was founded as neither a Christian nor a non-Christian nation? What’s left?”

But of course such a person hasn’t learned the R2K dialectics where no nation is ever founded on any religion as all nations exist as entities who inhabit the common square that is swayed by no religion but rather all the folks of all the different religions in any set nation are governed by natural law. R2K is the perfect religion for multiculturalism since it requires that the religion of no religion be the national faith of the people as combined with a willingness for the multifaiths in the multicultural national environment to have their gods agree to play second fiddle to the no-god god of R2K. Really, what happens in this arrangement is that the State becomes the god of the nation as it ends up with the authority to autonomously define what Natural law teaches.

Scott mocks theonomists and theocrats on the left and on the right but the fact of the matter is that Scott practices his own kind of theonomy and theocracy. In Scott’s theocracy the God is the State and in Scott’s theonomy is autonomous humanist law. Now, of course Scott will jump up and down insisting that is not the case but the only people he is convincing by that are his fellow R2K travelers. Non-practitioners of R2k understand that all nations are bound by religion and understand that R2K is its own religion.

2.) Next Scott goes after another favorite R2K hate shibboleth next in attacking “fundamentalism.” Scott conveniently decides to give his own unique definition of fundamentalism (a trait practiced by all fundamentalists) and then attacks his sui generis definition of fundamentalism.

Scott’s definition of fundamentalism is anyone who believes the following doctrines; pre-tribulational premillennialism, Dispensationalism, abstinence from alcohol, 6-day-24-hour creation and the myth of Christian America. Now Clark doesn’t tell us if one has to believe all these markers to be a fundamentalist or if it only takes belief in one of these markers to be a fundamentalist. Personally, I excoriate the first three of Scott’s markers while holding to the last two. Maybe, in Scottie’s world that makes me 2/5’s a fundamentalist? On this score Scott’s lack of precision makes it difficult to know who he does and does not have in his cross-hairs. However, were I a poker playing man I’d be pushing all my chips in the middle of the table on the bet that Scott would label me a dreaded “fundamentalist.” (But that’s “ok” because if I’m allowed to make my own definition of fundamentalist like Scott does, you can be sure that I find Scott to be a R2K fundamentalist.)

3.) Along the way Scott takes to the woodshed some poor anonymous OPC pastor who once told Scott that he would not have voted to ordain Machen since Machen held to a day-age view of creation. What Scott doesn’t tell us is that he would not vote to ordain a candidate who holds with deep conviction a 24-7 view of creationism.

4.) Scott suggests that David Barton, the R2K bête noire author who supports the Christian America myth is the only chap that is looked to for guidance on the idea of Christian America. Personally, I really really don’t like David Barton but I still believe in the historical reality of Christian America. I don’t need to read Barton’s hagiography in order to come to that conclusion. I only need to read the original State Constitutions as they almost uniformly were constructed on a Christian basis. I only need to read the sabbath laws that were on the books of most of the original states. Beyond that I can read about the influence of Scripture on the Declaration of Independence by Gary T. Amos. I can read Benjamin F. Morris’ work on the influence of Christianity on America. I can read Presbyterian Minister David W. Hall’s “The Genevan Reformation and the American Founding.” I can read M. Stanton Evan’s work on the subject. I can read the election sermons of the Puritans and the Black Robed Regiment. There are numerous other authors out there besides the crackpot David Barton that one can turn to find the hard evidence that America was founded as a Christian Nation. In the end it is Scott’s R2K presupposition that will not allow him to get past his guiding mythos that it is impossible for a Nation to be Christian.

5.) To his credit Scott also disagrees with the notion curried among the left that there was no Christian influence on America. It seems that Scott wants to say on one hand that there were Christians in America’s founding but that the Laws, Institutions and documents were never Christian in an objective sense because if the founding Laws, Institutions and documents were Christian in an objective sense (that is that Christianity was instantiated in America’s Laws, Institutions, and Documents) then the R2K jig is up. So, Scott wants to concede that subjectively there were Christians who influenced our founding without stipulating that in an objective sense America was Christian. However, it is indisputable that America was founded as a Christian nation as a cursory look at the original State Constitutions by themselves would prove.

6.) Scott says his expertise and reading in the 16th and 17th century era moves him to conclude that the idea that America was founded as a Christian nation is “mostly false.” Besides, some guy named Mark Edwards agrees with him therefore it must be so. Again, though, dear reader, please understand that Scott’s reading is all through his R2K prism which invariably dictates that it is impossible for any nation to be Christian.

7.) It is true that these united States experienced a worldview shift as among its cultural gatekeepers with the rise, first of Unitarian Deism and then later with Emersonian Transcendentalism, but even with the rise of these anti-Christ worldviews an argument can be made that rank and file independent minded Americans with their family bibles remained deeply influenced by Biblical Christianity. (Will it disappoint Scott to know that I agree with him in the idea that the 1st great and 2nd great awakening, on the whole, were not beneficial to the Church or nation?)

8.) Scott, by listing notable Christians in America’s founding and by conceding that there was indeed faithful Christians associated with the founding demonstrates that he has a problem making a needed distinction between individuals in a nation being Christian and the nation itself having a Christian founding as evidenced by its Laws, Institutions, and Documents. It’s almost as if Scott is counting noses of all the Christian founders and the Enlightenment founders and then concluding that if there are more Enlightenment founders than Christian founders that proves America was not founded as a Christian nation. However, that is not the alone place to consider when seeking to answer the question; “Was America founded as a Christian nation.” The place to look is the colonial / state laws, the founding documents, charters, and state Constitutions, as well as the Institutions themselves. Doesn’t prayer to open up Court sessions count for anything? What about days called by Magistrates for prayer and fasting? What about placing one’s hand on the Bible to take a oath? These things indicate something about our founding Scott.

9.) At the end of his article Scott takes a swipe at postmillennialists. Of course he took a swipe earlier at theonomists and theocrats. We’ve already established above that Scott himself is a theonomist and a theocrat. It’s ok Scott… all people are. We should now speak to Scott’s swipe at postmillennialism. Keep in mind that Scott is a rabid amillennialist. (All R2K types are.) As a rabid amillennialist it is Scott’s expectation that the nations will not bow the knee to the Lord Christ in time and space. As such any call for any nation to become decidedly and definitively Christian violates Scott’s eschatology. It just can’t happen in an eschatology that anticipates disaster and defeat for the expansion of the Kingdom of God beyond the walls of the Church.

10.) Scott promises a part II where he will turn his tender caresses towards the theonomists and theocrats. When Scott fires that salvo we will be here to give as good as we get.
