    A man's faith governs the totality of his life, or else his professed faith is not his real faith.

  2. 9

    The matriarchal society is thus the decadent and broken. The strongly matriarchal character of Negro life is due to the moral failure of Negro men, their failure to be responsible, to support the family, or to provide authority. The same is true of American Indian tribes which are also matriarchal today.

  3. 8

    The Bible identifies 15 crimes against the family worthy of the death penalty. Abortion is treason against the family and deserves the death penalty. Adultery is treason to the family; adulterers should be put to death. Homosexuality is treason to the family, and it too, is worthy of death.

  4. 7

    All men are NOT created equal before God; the facts of heaven and hell, election and reprobation make clear that they are not equal. Moreover, an employer has aproperty rights to prefer whom he will in terms of "color" creed, race or national origin.

    To be fearless in the Lord does not require us to be great and powerful men, but only to believe in the great and powerful God.

    The state is a bankrupt institution. The only alternative to this bankrupt 'humanistic' system is a God-centered government.

  8. 3

    There can be no tolerance in a law-system for another religion. Toleration is a device used to introduce a new law-system as a prelude to a new intolerance... Every law-system must maintain its existence by hostility to every other law-system and to alien religious foundations or else it commits suicide

  9. 2

    There can be no good character in civil government if there is none in the people. You cannot make a good omelet with bad eggs.

  10. 1

    To control the future requires the control of education and of the child. Hence, for Christians to tolerate statist education, or to allow their children to be trained thereby, means to renounce power in society, to renounce their children, and to deny Christ's Lordship over all of life.
