By in Highlands Blog on

Fading Like Grass The years of our life are seventy or eighty if we have the strength. A president’s years are four or eight if he has the votes. A supreme court justice has served anywhere from one year to thirty-six years, half a lifetime at most.

Basement Tape #79: Vote Your Conscience

Should we vote by principle, or by pragmatism? Or, is pragmatism the principle? Does God’s Word have anything to say about how we vote? We discuss voting for the lesser of two evils, candidates, and more.

 

Basement Tape #52: Reformation and Revolution

By in on

Special guest speakers: Dr. R.C. Sproul Sr., Howard Phillips, and Douglas Phillips. You say you want a Reformation? Well, you know, we’re doing what we can.

Here we discuss the distinction between Reformation and Revolution, between rebuilding the walls, and tearing down the blessings our fathers have wrought. Joining us in this discussion are two heroes of Reformation, Howard Phillips, who has reformed the thinking of hundreds of thousands on issues of statecraft, and Dr. R.C. Sproul, who has reformed the thinking of hundreds of thousands on their understanding of the things of God. Also joining the conversation is Howard’s son Doug, as we seek to honor our fathers while building a better future for our children.
