The Political Economy of a Christian Society

Posted on April 5, 2020

Written by Stephen Perks

Contrary to much popular opinion, economics is not a subject that is religiously neutral. The way the economy works is intimately bound up with fundamental issues of right and wrong, and what one judges to be right or wrong is itself intimately bound up with one’s religious perspective. Furthermore, the Christian Scriptures give specific and abiding rules about how men are to behave economically. It is the calling and duty of the church to address all areas in which God has revealed ethical norms for human behaviour. God has given laws to mankind governing both realms of activity. It is necessary therefore that the church should bring the moral teaching of the Bible to bear on the economic issues that face modern society. If Christians are to do this effectively, however, they must be informed. Ignorance of the economic realities upon which so much of life depends will vitiate the church’s ability to speak prophetically in this area and call the present generation back to gaithfulness to God’s word.

The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to the subject of Christian economics. Its aim is twofold: first, to give a general overview of the field of economics; to elucidate the general principles of economic concepts and the basic structures of economic institutions, and to provide a perspective that will enable the reader to assimilate the details of our modern economic system into an overall understanding of how the economy has developed and currently functions. Secondly, the book aims to indicate in what respects the economy needs to be reformed if it is to conform to Christian standards and so point the way to what the political economy of a Christian society should be like.


Economic Nationalism and the Religion of Death

Economic Nationalism and the Religion of Death

And when the state intervenes to control and regulate man and his economic choices, it can only destroy life and destroy growth. That’s the religious root of economic nationalism: the religion of death. The farther we stay from it, the faster we will grow our economy.

Los Fundamentos del Orden Social

Posted on April 4, 2020

Written by R.J. Rushdoony

Este en impresionante libro basado sobre estudios del autor realizados sobre los credos y concilios de la Iglesia Primitiva, Rushdoony dice que «El cristianismo no puede ser reducido al nivel de una religión misterio pagana, a la que básicamente solo le concierne la vida después de la muerte y aquí en esta vida las cosas personales.

Los fundamentos del orden social son, en efecto, en el aquí y ahora, pero también en la fe y la vida, y en lo que creemos con respecto a las cosas finales. En tanto que los hombres se han apartado del evangelio cristiano, han terminado construyendo un evangelio social y como han cambiado la ley de Dios por el antinomianismo, han suplantado a la ley-palabra de Dios y se han volcado a la palabra del hombre, al pietismo y a la verborrea piadosa.

La música de la Iglesia ahora a menudo celebra los sentimientos del hombre en lugar de celebrar a la Santísima Trinidad».

En este libro el autor afirma que el fundamento del verdadero orden social sólo puede ser en el Dios Trino y Su verdad y en la palabra escritural.

Does the Bible have answers to the tough dilemmas that plague our nation’s schools?

The educational crisis in America has become so desperate that most “experts” agree we are “a nation at risk.” Academic standards are declining. SAT scores are declining. Teacher competency is declining. In fact, just about everything we do with our schools is declining . . .except the costs, the crime, the drug abuse and the immorality.

Tragically, most of the experts don’t have answers to these dilemmas.

But the Bible does.

In this volume of the groundbreaking Biblical Blueprints Series, Robert Thoburn outlines specifically what those answers are. He shows us just exactly what we can do to restore academic and moral excellence in our schools according to Scripture’s own plan.

The Bible tells us what to do: when, where, how, and why. It offers us a “blueprint” for educational reform. The Children Trap lays out that blueprint simply, practically, and understandably. It shows us how to reverse the decline and answer the dilemmas.

To make it simple, when God says “Widows’ – or any other weaker persons’ – lives, liberty, property, etc. matters,” you don’t dare talk back at Him with “All lives, liberty, property, etc. matters.” Because you talk back at Him like that, you are in trouble.
