Jesus Christ's death was itself an exaltation and victory the Son of Man lifted up to draw the sinful world to him, and victory over the forces of Satan and sin and hell.

Jeffery Ventrella explains how Christians should live in the midst of a distinctly antichristian culture. With special reference to law and the family, we can have confidence that every act of faithfulness is meaningful in the activity of building godly culture.
On this special field episode of the podcast, Joe Boot visits with the Holy Political Podcast to talk about sphere sovereignty, a reminder that family, church, state, and much more besides have been distinctly ordained by God with their own jurisdiction, hierarchy and government.
Joe Boot spoke with the good men at the Rebel Alliance Podcast about the various interpretations of Two Kingdom theology and the differences between 2K and the historic Reformed faith. Click to listen to more from the Rebel Alliance.
Pierre Viret's vision, as derived from his Christian Instruction and faithful to the spirit of the Reformation, was to recover biblical foundations for our time, to help further the church in its task of advancing God's kingdom on earth and proclaiming the total sovereignty of God's Word.
The Reformation was a developing movement that strove to be faithful to the constant touchpoint of Scripture, in our own time we should be mindful of the constant need to submit our doctrines, beliefs, and experiences to the inspired, authoritative Word of God, and to interpret all of life and history in light of that Word.
At root, the Two Kingdoms controversy is a question of how we ought to live in a world that refuses to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord. In The World is Christ's, Willem J. Ouweneel details a number of historical, logical, and exegetical considerations surrounding this question, and helps readers understand that everything we do is an act of worship - the issue is whether our worship is directed towards God or away from him.
