Six Centuries from Agincourt by Rod D. Martin

Posted By Max Lyons, Monday, October 26, 2015

Today in 1415 on this, St. Crispin’s Day, King Henry V triumphed at Agincourt. The battle is one of the defining moments in the history of the English-speaking peoples. It is a victory like unto Marathon or Arbela; or for Christians, and certainly for the devout King Henry, a postcanonical deliverance comparable to the victory of Gideon, or to the parting of the Red Sea.


Historians speak of the First British Empire, which began in Jamestown and ended at Yorktown, and of the Second British Empire, of which India became the keystone and which died very quickly once its heart was removed.


But eight decades before Columbus and..

Happy Columbus Day 2015

Columbus Advanced the Gospel Westward

By Max Lyons, Ph.D.


One man or woman, in obedience to God, can do great things, and make a profound difference in the world.  Annually we honor such a man, Christopher Columbus.  October 12th is Columbus Day because on October 12, 1492, land was first sighted from the deck of the Pinta.  The island soon reached was to be named San Salvador, or Holy Savior.  All Americans should know that Columbus was a man who was used by God to move the Gospel westward, and his efforts, and those after him, led to the establishment of a nation that embraced God as its Lord. This of course is The United States of America, a land of freedom for all.


Christopher (which means light bearer) Columbus kept journals, and one of the things that he wrote was what has been published as the Book of Prophecies.  We know from his writings that one of his primary motivations was a passion to see the world evangelized.  Here is a portion of his letter to Ferdinand and Isabella, monarchs of Spain:


At this time I have seen and put in study to look into the Scriptures, cosmography, histories, chronicles and philosophy and other arts, which our Lord opened to my understanding (I could sense His hand upon me), so that it became clear to me that it was feasible to navigate from here to the Indies; and He unlocked within me the determination to execute the idea. All those who heard about my enterprise rejected it with laughter, scoffing at me.  Neither the sciences which I mentioned above, nor the authoritative citations from them, were of any avail.  Who doubts that this illumination was from the Holy Spirit?  I attest that He (The Spirit), with marvelous rays of light consoled me through the holy and sacred Scriptures, a strong and clear testimony, with the forty four books of the Old Testament and four Gospels with twenty three Epistles of those blessed Apostles, encouraging me to proceed, and, continually, without ceasing for a moment, they inflame me with a sense of great urgency.


In God’s Providence, Columbus opened the door for further exploration and eventual colonization of the American continents. Columbus’ vision was fulfilled, the gospel advanced westward. In God’s providence America was colonized by Protestant England rather than Catholic Spain or France. As a result Biblically reasoning Americans produced a form of government based upon the Scriptures, ensuring a liberty for the individual that was unprecedented in human history.


This Columbus Day, I pray that I will have the spirit of Columbus, to be a light bearer to our world!

There Should be a Law About That

Posted By Max Lyons, Monday, June 8, 2015

There should be a law about that!

Max Lyons


Something bad happens- someone is hurt, has a loss, or is offended. The first reaction, in our times, often is, “There should be a law against that” or (worse) “government needs to do something.” Not always. Be skeptical when you are told that a new law is needed. Why?

First, not every problem is political. Most problems have a moral root and are best addressed by parents, teachers, pastors, etc. Examples include sexual sins, greed, covetousness, hate, racism, drugs/alcohol abuse. Not all sins are crimes and not all crimes are sins. It is not a sin to fail to stop at a stop sign. It is a civil offense because of traffic laws that maintain order on highways and roads. It is not a crime to lust, but it most certainly is a serious sin (Matthew 5). To act on lust, and commit adultery, rape, or produce pornography is a crime. As a society, we need to very careful about elevating what the Bible calls sin to the level of a crime. Making some crimes “hate crimes” is a slippery slope indeed.

Many problems are issues of the heart. Fornication, idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies (Galatians 5:19-21) are heart matters, and need to be dealt with differently than civil crimes. God has jurisdiction over the heart, while man has jurisdiction over actions, especially ones that violate the life, liberty or property of fellow man. Therefore God judges lust but societies have laws against adultery; God judges hatefulness but man has laws against acts to harm someone you don’t like; God judges selfishness and envy but man punishes theft of any kind; God judges drunkenness but we have laws against drunk driving or public drunkenness.

Be careful- every insult, hurt or offense does not constitute a crime and call for direct repercussions. Sometimes we need to turn the other cheek. Can you conceive of a society where every wrong is met with a penalty? This is not remotely advocated by the Bible! Even the Creator of the Universe does not punish every sinful act with an immediate consequence. Jesus suffered much at the hands of sinful man while not protesting, and praying for those who treated him so unjustly.

Secondly, civil government does not have unlimited jurisdiction. Render to civil government authority to punish evildoers and ensure justice but render unto other spheres of authority (individual, family, church, voluntary associations) authority to carry out their proper responsibilities as well. Remember every power ceded to civil government through a new law is necessarily a power that will no longer be exercised by one of the other spheres of authority. God’s order is for limited, decentralized civil government.

We need to ask, is this problem an issue of internal self-government or external civil government. If a man will not be governed by the Ten Commandments, he will be governed by ten thousand commandments (G.K. Chesterton). God originally had only one law (Genesis 2:17). Then through Moses, He gave ten laws (Exodus 20). To the nation of Israel, He gave 613 laws. Civil penalties were limited to a relatively few actions. Most of life was under self-government, family government, business government and religious government. By way of contrast, our nation has a virtually unlimited number of laws, growing as we speak. In 2010 over 40,000 federal laws were added, not counting state and local laws. How many laws are there in the United States? So many, that no knows! In 1982 the Justice Department tried to determine the total number of criminal laws. In two years, Ronald Gainor, former Justice Department official, gave up, stating, “you will have died and been resurrected three times” and not have an answer to this question. These do not include the “crime” of not heeding a federal regulation, of which there are hundreds of thousands.

Of great importance in this discussion is the fact that every law restricts liberty. Every law proclaims, “You must do this or you cannot do that.” When considering the merits of creating a new law, consider that there needs to be a benefit that is greater than the cost of the lost liberty. Our liberty is under assault. Americans need to once again fight to preserve liberty and perhaps that means repealing many unbiblical laws rather than creating new ones.

Let me offer the Bible’s alternative to more laws: more Christian self-government, which stems from a relationship with the Supreme Judge of the world-Jesus Christ.

Dr Paul Jehle presents:The Great Charter of Liberty: 800 years of Significance

Posted By Max Lyons, Wednesday, June 3, 2015

The Foundation for American Christian Education is pleased to announce

a lecture in a series of 

Lessons in Liberty 

Dr. Paul Jehle will present: 

The Great Charter of Liberty: 800 years of Significance 

Live, via streaming, on Tuesday, June 9th (6:30-8:30 pm EST) 

The Magna Charta was signed on June 15, 1215, so now celebrating its 800th anniversary! The founders of our Republic based their stand for independence on the written law.  At numerous times they referenced Magna Charta as the fountain of English law and liberty.  Why did they do this?  What might they have known about its history and content that we do not?  Join us to hear the true story of how Magna Charta came to be written and why it is significant for us to remember it on its 800th anniversary." 

Dr. Paul Jehle became Plymouth Rock Foundation's third Executive Director in 2006, having been the Foundation's Education Director since 1988.  Paul began traveling across the nation teaching on America's Pilgrim and Patriot heritage, holding 20 seminars a year in 35 States and 6 foreign countries.  Paul Jehle has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics from Barrington College, and a Doctorate degree in Education from Whitefield Theological Seminary.  Paul began giving walking tours of Plymouth and its monuments in 1978.  He published "Plymouth in the Words of Her Founders" for tourists and interested visitors to Plymouth and Cape Cod, letting the Pilgrims interpret the monuments erected in their honor through their own words in 2004.   Dr. Jehle founded The New Testament Christian School in 1980, a private Christian academy offering grades K-12.  He became the Senior Pastor of The New Testament Church in 1987 where he and his wife began attending in 1975 and where they still serve today.  Paul and Charlene have two grown children.
