Heard today...

... at the American Vision Midwest Conference at Providence Church in Morton, Illinois

"Your view of the future determines how you live in the present."

- Gary DeMar

"Your children were ordained by God to be born in your home."

- James McDonald

"You can't destroy a Christian civilization unless you destroy its economic power. You can't destroy its economic power unless you destroy the family."

- Bojidar Marinov

"The church has bought into the lie that government's resources are unlimited, and that God's resources are limited."

- James Lansberry

If you weren't there today, you missed Gary DeMar speaking on the importance of eschatology on how you live in the present and a biblical view of Ezekiel 38-39 and Matthew 24. James McDonald emphasized the importance of training our children by our words and our example to the end of establishing the next generation. Bojidar Marinov explained how socialists have been attacking the institution of the family in Europe for centuries, and defined what socialism can and cannot take away from us here in America. James Lansberry spoke on God's ability to work through his church, and the vision some believers have for wresting back from the government what belongs to God.

If you missed it, I'm sorry for you, but I guess you could try again next time.


  1. Hmm, the second quote is interesting. I must be more reformed than James. I would argue all things are ordained and ordered by God, whether children were born at home, in the family van, or in the nearby hospital! :)


  2. Bob -- I'll have to ask James if I got that quote right. He may have room in his belief structure for birth in a stable also.
