Praying according to God’s will (1 John 5:14) simply means praying Scriptural prayers. It involves claiming God’s promises, pleading God’s attributes, aligning our prayers with God’s commandments and filling our adorations, confessions, thanksgivings and supplications with the text of the Bible. What a way to increase the faith of prayer warriors!
If one examines the prayers of Nehemiah, Daniel, Moses and other saints, one will discover that these prayer warriors confidently prayed because they filled their prayers with the promises of a God who cannot lie; they anchored their prayers in the character of a God who is faithful; and they aligned their desires with God’s revealed desires. It is our prayer that this booklet would teach us to do the same.
Covenantal, Historical Sanctions Defended in the Book of Job
Gordan Runyan, from Immanuel Baptist Church in Tucumcari, New Mexico, provides an overview of the book of Job, providing answers to sticky questions. He shows that modern evangelicalism still struggles along under the bad thinking exhibited by Job’s three friends, and by Job himself, and explains God’s enigmatic answer to the thematic question, “Why do the righteous suffer?” He manages to throw shade at Word of Faith, R2K, Dispensationalism, and Amillennialism along the way.
John Reasoner and Jay Rogers
John Andrew Reasoner and Jay Rogers join me in the War Room to weigh in on OSA’s Louisville action, and to discuss the tactic of rescue, creating an anti-death culture through theonomic discipleship, and the result of a merger of charismatic Christianity with Christian Reconstructionism.
Art must take the world as interpreted by God and represent it in a form that emphasizes either beauty or ugliness, and re-interpret them ethically/judicially after God’s interpretation of them.

049: How Does the Kingdom of God Expand?
In episode #49 of the Out of the Question Podcast, Steve Macias and Andrea Schwartz discuss what is the Kingdom of God and how we should measure its success.
What is the nature of Christianity? Is it a religion or a cult, i.e. a personal worship hobby? This question goes to the heart of the modern Church’s failure to exercise a world-transforming faith. The antidote to this failure is the rediscovery of Christianity as the true religion, i.e. as an overarching structure to human life that anchors both the individual and the society of which he is a part in God’s will for man in Christ. This religious structure the Bible calls the covenant, and it embraces the whole of human life including politics, education, science, art, welfare, health care, marriage, family life, Church, business, economy.
The Church and the Resurrection
In this episode of Setting the Record Straight we will discuss the Church’s role corporately/universally rather through an individualistic lens as we dive deep into Ephesians 2:1-9. We will see why most American churches and Christians are impotent when it comes to things of the Kingdom of God. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the victory of Christ’s Church revealed!

Reconstruction and the Pulpit
Pastor Gordan Runyan and his wife, Joyce, discuss preaching and sermons and how Christian Reconstruction might effect the preparation and delivery of Biblical messages.
For centuries skeptics and unbelievers have denied the veracity of the Bible. Today there are many denominations and many people who call themselves Christians that take a similar view. They say the Bible contains truth, or it teaches truth, or portions of it are true. But they deny the veracity of miracles, the resurrection, Mosaic authorship, patriarchal lineages, etc. What is the orthodox Christian to do? Toss in the towel? Leave it to the experts? NO! Christians need to talk to the doubters and explain why the Bible is TRUE—every jot and tittle of it. Indeed, the Bible is not only “True”, it is “Truth” (John 17:17).
