When Swords Heal - A Screenplay
How should Christians respond to tyranny? That we are bound to suffer is evident in Scripture, but do we suffer through unconditional submission to tyranny, through peacefully resisting tyranny, through armed resistance to tyranny, or are there other biblical options? These are very important questions for God's people.
The biblical doctrine of the lesser magistrates is the belief that lesser civil authorities have the duty to protect the innocent within their lawful jurisdiction, even if they must interpose between tyrannical higher magistrates and the people. This doctrine is defended in the historical context of the Roman Emperor's attempt to violently stamp out the Reformation in the sixteenth century, and the successful resistance of the Christian city of Magdeburg, Germany. The tension between the biblical obligation to submit to the authorities and the duty of lesser magistrates to resist tyranny is displayed in a dramatic conflict between a Magdeburg pastor and his eldest son when they take opposing views on submission to the Emperor.
The present-day crises of the vacuum of fatherly authority in the home, and of increasing socialism and immorality in government demand practical, biblical answers. This riveting true story sets forth the biblical answers in a winsome fashion.
As the burgeoning freedom movement grows in the West, many conservative leaders have attempted to fortify this movement on the foundation of humanism - the same foundation upon which the present threats to our freedom are erected.

Prosperity through Obedience
The following article was written from my 14-year-old daughter Charity, about a novel she read Uncle Tom's Cabin.
When Americans owned slaves, a popular fallacy was, without slavery, our nation will fail. In Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, we see a complete failure of Americans to protect life and liberty, and a lack of trust in God to care for them when they submit to Him. History and scripture have deemed it obvious that only when nations follow God's law and obey Him, will He bless them.
God will not allow a nation to prosper when they reject Him. God clearly states in his word, "If ye turn away, and forsake My statutes and My commandments, which I have set before you and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them; Then will I pluck them out by the roots out of My land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for My name, will I cast out of My sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations." George Washington said, "The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained."
