Dr. Morecraft presented three inter-connected lectures on the origins of Western Civilization, the forces that have undermined and are still seeking to destroy it, and finally, what God has revealed concerning the future the church and the world. The stroll down the memory lane of Christendom included St. Augustine, the growth of the Church in the Roman world, the Protestant Reformation, and the descendants of the Reformation Church, both faithful and unfaithful. The intellectual forces of counter-reformation, enlightenment, secular humanism, Marxism, and Darwinism eventually arrayed themselves against Christendom till we see today the results in our own nation’s denial of their past, and the state establishing itself as the god and lawgiver of the people. As an antidote to evangelical pessimism and defeatist attitudes, Pastor Morecraft preached a triumphal and encouraging message from Isaiah 2 on the final triumph of Christ over the nations when his kingdom will cover the earth “as the waters cover the sea.”
Colonel John Eidsmoe brought his encyclopedic knowledge of constitutional history and biblical understanding to evaluate some of the current depravities that have been unleashed upon America by a court system dominated by judicial activism and the unchecked powers of the Supreme Court. He cited current cases that could restore some of the powers granted by the Constitution to the states and answered questions from the audience regarding legal defenses, especially interposition.
