Ecumenism in the Trenches

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

Christian men exist in two kingdoms (the right and the left ‘hands’ of Christ) and three estates (family, Church, and State). Many modern men neglect the fullness of this reality via excessive focus on the Kingdom of the right hand of Christ (i.e., the Church). Further, and perhaps worse, many pastors believe that their role in the right-hand Kingdom entitles them to honors, respect, or other deference with regard to the left-hand kingdom — it does not.

The domain of the pastor is the preaching of the Word and the administration of the Sacraments. The domain of Christian men is all three of the estates of life — family, Church, and State. With regard to family and State, Christian men have many duties, but pastors have only one — silence. The role of the pastor is local and circumscribed; the role of Christian men is not exclusively so. The pastor qua pastor has nothing to say with regard to the State, to the kingdom of the left hand of Christ — that is the domain of Christian men.

As Christian men, we must work together on the issues facing us, and that regardless of which kingdom or which estate. Pastors have their role and we have ours; the former must learn their limitations and the latter must do their duty.

The Sword of Christ by Giles Corey

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

Modern churches, by and large, have been subverted — we all know this. Is the subversion of the churches an argument against Christianity? Of course not. The Church fought for decades against the very sort of infiltration and subversion that is, today, destroying our churches before our very eyes.

Further, the Christian faith is the foundation of the West — the West is Christendom and Christendom is the West. Without a restoration of the Christian faith, there will be no revival in the West. As Christians, we must know both where the battle is joined and how we are to fight.

In today’s episode, we are joined by an editor from Antelope Hill Publishing to review the book The Sword of Christ by Giles Corey and discuss the issues raised in the book (and maybe a tangent or two).

Christian Nationalism Is Submission to God

Hosts

Woe

aka Eschatologuy

You may have heard of the ‘two kingdoms’ doctrine and have certainly heard of the ‘separation of Church and State’, but is either of these a truly Christian position? Is God Lord only of His Church or does He also rule the kingdoms of this world? As Christians, what are our duties in the context of the State?

The Media, and many others, have spent years, now, shouting about “Christian Nationalism”, but few could even define either term. This episode is both a primer on Christian Nationalism from a Christian perspective and the definitive statement of its core nature. Christian Nationalism is simply Christianity lived out in the left-hand kingdom, for both kingdoms belong to Christ.
