I am a Pastor of a small Church in Mid-Michigan who delights in my family, my congregation and my calling.
I am postmillennial in my eschatology.
Paedo-Calvinist Covenantal in my Christianity
Reformed in my Soteriology
Presuppositional in my apologetics
Familialist in my family theology
Agrarian in my regional community social order belief
Christianity creates culture and so Christendom in my national social order belief
Mythic-Poetic / Grammatical Historical in my Hermeneutic
Pre-modern, Medieval, & Feudal before Enlightenment, modernity, & postmodern
Reconstructionist / Theonomic in my Worldview
One part paleo-conservative / one part micro Libertarian in my politics
Systematic and Biblical theology need one another but Systematics has pride of place
Some of my favorite authors,
Augustine, Turretin, Calvin, Tolkien, Chesterton, Nock, Tozer, Dabney, Bavinck, Wodehouse, Rushdoony, Bahnsen, Schaeffer, C. Van Til, H. Van Til, G. H. Clark, C. Dawson, H. Berman, R. Nash, C. G. Singer, R. Kipling, G. North, J. Edwards, S. Foote, F. Hayek, O. Guiness, J. Witte, M. Rothbard, Clyde Wilson, Mencken, Lasch, Postman, Gatto, T. Boston, Thomas Brooks, Terry Brooks, C. Hodge, J. Calhoun, Llyod-Jones, T. Sowell, A. McClaren, M. Muggeridge, C. F. H. Henry, F. Swarz, M. Henry, G. Marten, P. Schaff, T. S. Elliott, K. Van Hoozer, K. Gentry, etc.
My passion is to write in such a way that the Lord Christ might be pleased. 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.

Bret, wow! You came out of the box for the new year charging hard. Glad to see you back. Its been a while. It will take a little while to catch up on all you have posted. Like the Buchanan post. One of my peeves is all the WWII supporters. Have been doing some study on the subject and come to think like you seem to. Have you read Defend America first by Garet Garrett? Highly recommend. Gray
The only thing that I’ve read by Garet Garrett is “The Revolution that Was,” and “The People’s Pottage.” I’ve read Buchanan’s “Unnecessary War,” and my Mentor in undergrad clued me in young about the nature of WW II. I’ve done other reading since then that has reinforced my Mentor’s take.
A great number of tissue of lies surrounding that event.
For some reason, your links are not showing up as hypertext. Is it my web browser???
Did you remove the option for different skin themes?
I’ll ask around. I don’t know the answer to your questions but people who are helping me with this will.
