The Chalcedon Foundation® is a think tank for the self-governing Christian, devoted to the research, publishing, and promotion of Christian Reconstruction. We believe that the Christian faith is applicable to every area of life and thought and that all things are to be “reconstructed” according to God’s revealed will in Scripture.

This podcast is a collection of articles and essays narrated by volunteers from Reconstructionist Radio on behalf of Chalcedon. The authors include R.J. Rushdoony, Martin Selbrede, Mark Rushdoony, Andrea Schwartz, and more.

This week we interviewed Matt Trewhella, a pastor from Wisconsin that is a well-known proponent of the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate.

Here are some recommended links for further study:

What can you do now? Contact your lesser magistrates! Write to them. Keep it short, make your point, don’t go over 1 page. You could even meet with your local officials!

“We need to urge our local officials to honor God, and support them in that endeavor.”

14: Philosophy of Voting & 9 Marks On The Gospel And Culture

This week we had a great discussion on voting. It’s a timely issue and needs to be seriously thought about by all Christians. How should we support the existing government? Should we dissent? Is there such thing as a wasted vote? We covered the RPCNA’s voting stance, mostly focusing on the supremacy clause of the US Constitution (stating that the supreme authority is itself and the laws made) and the religious pluralism upheld by the First Amendment (explicitly denying the First Commandment). Then we discussed an article on the 9Mark website (see link below) regarding the Gospel and Culture. We encourage you all to visit the page and engage them in the comment section! Cheers folks!

The Great Tribulation

In this book, Chilton confidently and simply proposes that the Great Tribulation, which many expect to arrive in the near future, is actually a past event. To substantiate his argument, he gives an honest hermeneutical appraisal of Christ’s teaching in the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24; Lk. 21; Mk. 13) as well as other places in the Gospels, and gives a topical commentary on the book of Revelation – all this to successfully demonstrate that these events find their fulfillment in our past, not in our future. Perhaps you disagree – you chuckle as you read this and asseverate in your mind that such a teaching is manifestly impossible. Yet, have you ever read the arguments? Challenged your own? Don’t shy away from this great book! Let it challenge you! If, after reading, you still disagree… fine. But don’t fail to give a little attention to one of the most quickly advancing eschatological positions today!

Are we living in the Last Days? Are the signs of our times the Signs of the End? Is the Great Tribulation just around the corner?

For almost three generations evangelical Christians have answered these questions with an unequivocal “YES”!

In this challenging new book by David Chilton, all the prophetic passages of Scripture dealing with the End Times are re-examined with careful attention to every revealing detail. And his conclusions are nearly as startling as the prophesies themselves.

The Great Tribulation is the kind of sane, balanced, and easy to understand introduction to End Times theology that Christians have needed from a long, long time.

  1. The Terminal Generation
