‘Does It Matter If “Christian Fiction” Is Badly Written?’ (2015)

We want Christian fiction–if there is even such a thing. Maybe we should be talking about “fiction written by Christians which just naturally displays a Christian sensibility.”

Does It Matter If ‘Christian Fiction’ Is Badly Written?

Calling any kind of work of art–stories, music, architecture, painting–“Christian” doesn’t make it so. And if it’s of inferior quality, that’s worse than no “Christian” art at all.

Too much culture ground has been surrendered to the ungodly–way too much. I don’t see how any rational person could deny it. We need Christian fiction. Just like we need Christian music, TV shows produced and written by Christians, Christian men and women in government, Christian schools and universities… Good grief, what were we thinking when we turned all of that over to the antichrists?

‘The Path Forward’

1960s - Wikipedia

We’ve had crazy times in our country before. When the Chalcedon Foundation was founded in 1965, we were only halfway through those crazy Sixties and it was going to get much worse before it got better.

But we, as Christian reconstructionists, take the long view.


In Mark Rushdoony’s new essay, The Path Forward, we see there are no quick fixes, no short-term answers. We have to rebuild Christian civilization and culture even as the bad guys are doing everything they can to tear it down.

The belief that must sustain us is this: Jesus Christ is Lord of heaven and earth now. Not tomorrow, not next year, not a hundred years hence–but now. He is Lord now. And as such His victory is certain.

And we want to be in that number, when the saints go marching in!
