  • Bible Americas Source Of Law And Liberty

  • Monumental Study Guide Book Only


    America has undergone a radical shift in recent times, from an exceptional nation the most free, prosperous, and virtuous in history to a nation in decline.

    There are numerous signs of decay in the American culture: the breakdown of the family; the abandonment of sexual morals; the decline of education; the rampant killing of unborn children; the rise of big government; and the growing hostility to Christianity in schools, colleges, the military, business, and government.

    The good news is that we can do something to solve these problems and restore America. We can follow the blueprint that the Founders of the nation gave us to build a free nation.

    Order this book if you are in need of more Study Guides for a small group, bible study, etc.

  • Whats It Like To Be President


    There are very few books for homeschoolers that explain how the American government works. And there are even fewer that are entertaining, humorously illustrated, and written by someone who has worked in the White House.

    Your child will learn:

    How a bill becomes a law
    What role lobbyists play in legislation
    How leaks to the media shape politics
    How bureaucracy tries to control Congress…and the president!
    How parties can reconcile and act together
    The role that public opinion plays in legislation

  • Some Dare Call It Theocracy


    Many people have charged Christians with seeking to set up a theocracy in the United States, and imposing their narrow moral views – a from of Christian Sharia law – on the country. According to some, anyone who would dare to allow Biblical truths to inform their world- and life- views, and especially to mention this in context of politics, government and law, are the worst form of theocrats and the greatest danger to liberty in the world. But examining the history of liberty and the work of America’s founders tells a completely different story: the Christian religion and morality are the essential pillars of free, just, and prosperous nations.

  • 10 Commandments And Modern Society


    Jesus Reiterated what all the Bible teaches: that God’s Law/Word, which is summarized by the Ten Commandments, contains principles that, if obeyed, produce life-life for men and nations- but, if ignored, produce death. Americas laws were based upon God’s higher law. This higher law, as summarized in the Ten Commandments, used to be taught to all Americans, was greatly revered, and all looked to obey it. Today, few obey, revere or even know His commands. Many people are doing all they can to remove any vistige of His law from our nation, claiming they are a great detriment to society. In 1980 the Supreme Court ruled in Stone v. Graham that the public schools of Kentucky could not display the Ten Commandments on the walls. The court said: If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments. About 1.7 million Americans are behind bars today- 1 in every 155. To learn to not steal or murder might not be too bad an idea to help deal with this problem. Marriages ending in divorce have increased exponentially in the last three decades- to learn not to commit adultery seems a pretty good idea. But in order to apply the principles of life contained in the Commandments, we must first know them. If Christians do not thoroughly understand them, they will never be infused in the law and life of our nation.

  • Crime And Punishment A Biblical Perspective


    Crime is rampant throughout the world and affects everyone. Over 10 million crimes are committed every year in America. Every 3 seconds a crime occurs against someone’s property. Capital and other violent crimes occur about every 35 seconds. America’s response to crime (like most nations) has largely been to build prisons to keep criminals, and this at an annual cost exceeding $30,000 per inmate. These correctional institutions have done little to correct the problem and in many ways have helped develop more professional criminals.

    God has a better way to deal with law breakers. The Bible reveals to us the cause of crime and why crime flourishes, but more importantly how to deal with crime. It gives us both preventative and corrective measures. The emphasis of God’s Word in dealing with criminal acts is restitution to the victim and restoration of Godly order. This booklet examines Biblical restitution, the death penalty, theft by voting, and much more.

  • Defending The Declaration


    After ten years of research and four years of writing, Dr. Gary Amos reveals that the evidence from primary sources is irrefutable: underlying the Declaration of Independence is a foundation of Biblical principles and Christian influence. The Bible and Christianity-not deism and secularism-were the most important influences on the framers. Amos laments that America’s educational system denies or ignores almost all of this evidence; evidence he believes to be undeniable.
