A Great Opportunity for Cultural Revitalization

“And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.”  Mark 12:42-44

Christianity, America and the whole of Western civilization is at a cross-roads. If we are to lay a foundation of applied Biblical Scholarship for the express purpose of cultural renovation for the next generation the time is NOW. If we miss this opportunity it may very well be too late for any progress in the years to come.

The New Geneva Academy in conjunction with its parent non-profit Theological Institution the ITR has been given a tremendous opportunity by the merciful providence of God. The ITR has just secured a substantial piece of property across from its already existing library of more than 100,000 books, pdf and microfiche documents in downtown Appomattox, Virginia.

The purpose of this purchase is to build a small conference center with additional library

space which will house the R.J. Rushdoony Library of 48,000 books, making New Geneva and the ITR one of the largest libraries in Virginia, if not the largest to date.

The facility will be used as a research and resource center to train cultural leaders, ministers, evangelists, gospel ambassadors and statesmen. It will be like the Geneva of Calvin’s day where Knox once commented that the school at Geneva was "The most perfect school of Christ that ever was on earth since the days of the Apostles". We want to realize this once again as we embark on a new reformation.

While we have the property we do not have the funds to build the building. Wonderfully, however, new construction prices in Appomattox are relatively low compared to other U.S. cities. Moreover, Appomattox is located in the heart of Virginia, easily accessible from several of the East Coast States and developing quickly.

In order to realize this we need others to share both the vision and the passion that we have for this project. We are asking you to give like the widow gave in Mark 12. We need to raise approximately $200,000 - $225,000 for this to become a much needed reality.

This building will not only house the conference center and the library, it will be coupled with our existing building to provide a campus like atmosphere for both our students and the entire community.

Will you please consider being part of this project?

All donations are tax deductible and checks should be made out to the ITR.

The Hamster Wheel

One of the strategies of the Monolithic State is "Time Appropriation." If the State can commandeer the Christian's time by forcing him to devote all of his time to mere survival via making just enough money to live, the State then can thwart any move for Christian Reconstruction from being realized.

If all your time is taken up with work just to survive and pay bills you cannot redeem any time for the things of the Kingdom unless your work is being used specifically for Kingdom advancement. Without a targeted plan that situation, however, is not usually the norm. Too may Christians have failed to use their careers in such a way as to advance the Kingdom and have thereby set themselves up to run the "Hamster Wheel" just to make ends meet,l or in some cases to buy more stuff.

In order to keep Godly men and their families on the hamster wheel the State continues to impose every type of taxation upon them. This is the theology of unlawful taxation; feed the State so that it can continue to perpetuate its religion of secular humanism on its people and its demands of its monolithic ideology through legislation and coercion, to be as God.

In this way time is appropriated by the demands of the State. They not only own your time, they own you. But if that is not enough to make you furious they also own your future and if this pattern is not broken they will also own your children's future.

Redeeming the Time

Time is more important than money. Flexibility is more important than money. Your family cf Deuteronomy 8:18 This is precisely why the Scripture commands us to redeem time and not money per se, for the days are evil. Ephesians 5:16 and its future is more important than money. And of course the advancement of the Kingdom of Heaven is more important everything. Money is important only if it is used Biblically.

The Christian that finds him or herself on the State's hamster wheel must make a conscience decision to be liberated from its cyclical prison. The question is not how much money can we make, or how many things we can buy, but how many things have we done for the Kingdom. How productive were we in our lifetime for the Glory of God and the Gospel's advance? It's never a question of how much money do we want but rather how much money do we really need, and to what purpose do we use our finances. It is a fact that the blind quest for cash is a fools errand. Working for mere wages without a Kingdom plan is folly and vexation of spirit.

Define Your Purpose

Too many within the Christian community go through life without a clear definition of its meaning. Too may do not really have an active life plan based upon Scriptural mandates. For them life is passive. There is no real life's design God-ward. What is more discouraging is too many Christians fail to realize that they are commissioned to make an impact in the world for the Glory of God and not merely for the glory and financial success of themselves. The question that each of us must ask is "What is our contribution to the Kingdom's advance?" If we cannot answer this then we have not contributed to its advancement and we must then rethink our entire life's purpose and whether or not Christ is the central hub or life.

“Someday” is a disease that strips the individual from his or her ultimate potential. To say “ I will do that Someday” or “I will embark on that all important life-altering direction in my life Someday” is actually admitting “that day will never come.” Someday is an excuse not to begin something but to have it always there just in case Someday comes. Someday is the disease of eternal procrastination especially when it concerns the work of advancing the Kingdom of Christ and His Crown Rights over all the earth.

The reasons for appealing to “Someday” are many. At times fear uses the “Someday” excuse while knowing deep down that “Someday” will never come.  Sometimes a lack of conviction that the project desired for “Someday” is the right thing. In this case it is better that “Someday” never comes. However, if the project is justifiable, neglecting its execution may simply be the result of sloth. At other times lack of faith or opportunity moves that “Someday” further and further into the future until there is no longer any future to move it to. In this case the old adage is true; “Someday never comes.”

The Time Is Now

If what is proposed for “Someday” is right and good, then the time to act is now. When the “Someday Proposition” is for the service and advancement of the Kingdom of Christ the time to act is not only now, it is overdue. Yesterday is no longer an option to begin since that day is gone, never to be redeemed again. Nor is tomorrow and option since tomorrow never really comes. The time to act is now. The time to make that move is now.

"Now" is attainable – “Someday” is not.

The Metaphorical Shedding of Innocent Blood by the State

Innocence Sacrificed to Government Schools

Man, by being created in the image of God has an a priori knowledge of God. He begins with a conscience whereby he intuitively knows right from wrong, good from evil. In his natural state, however, he suppresses that knowledge in unrighteousness. Now two things can happen to that individual especially when it is in its innocence as a child: Its rebellious nature can be enforced or it can be mortified.

Since all educational constructs hold to a particular set of worldviews, either God-centered or man-centered, it cannot be neutral. It will either affirm God or deny Him.
Children are susceptible to outside influences either good or evil.Education will either reinforce one or the other. While children are prone to evil by the fall, that evil can be mortified by a Godly environment. Even within an environment of moralism, and their education based upon traditional standards of right and wrong, the child is better off since an ethical upbringing resonates with the child in later years.

What is Actually Taught In Government Schools?

● Man is the source of all knowledge – Not God. Man is the measure of all things.
● There is no such thing as sin. Man simply makes mistakes.|
● Divine revelation is a religious myth and Biblical infallibility is impossible.
● Jesus was a good man and a moral teacher like Gandhi, Buddha, Confucius and others but not God incarnate.
● It is man that decides what is right and wrong, good and evil, culturally acceptable or unacceptable.
● The child is taught that there is no such thing as absolutes and that empirical reality (those things that can been seen or scientifically proven) is the only reality. God is not the source of truth, wisdom or ethics. Epistemologically, everything is relative.
● The impact of secular humanism via modernism and postmodernism has all but destroyed any hope of a moral society outside the intervention of God.

Replacement, Not Reform

The government schools do not need reform, they need to be replaced. From the beginning they have sworn to educate from a humanist, Marxists, Socialistic platform, and they have been very successful. Reform is not the answer. Replacement is.

The agenda of Statist education, however, is not complete. Now the captains of the culture's re-alignment downward are implementing curricular which applauds alternate lifestyles and sexual perversions which God has condemned and which history shows to be the final leg of destruction for a nation.

Christians everywhere must object with action. Words are not effective. To do this there needs to be alternative Christian-based home education which is supported by the church and para-church organizations. If your church refuses to implement support it is time to depart from that church. Those churches are part of the problem since they have rejected God's commission to be part of the solution.

It is time to exodus from Egypt so that the saints may enter into the promised land of true liberty and spare the nation from utter calamity.

Why are so many individuals, especially Christians vague as to their life's purpose?
Why are so many wasting precious time, the majority of which don't even know they are wasting it?

What distinguishes the dreamers from the doers; the arm chair warriors from the ones who are actually on the front lines of cultural dominion change God-ward?

The answer is simple: Definition!

Defining ones direction and purpose is the key to being effective in life.Without definition an individual remains misguided, tossed by every emotional whim and situation that presents itself. Once an individual defines his life's directions and purpose, he (or she) becomes focused and productive. Definition introduces objectives perhaps never before realized. It is the foundation of every strategy and tactic.Once goals are defined and objectives are isolated productivity results.

The Rat Race is only for Rats

Those who run the rat race have failed to see the big picture. They have failed to look into the Word of God in order to identify that they are like the man whom Christ condemns for building barn after barn after barn, only to find himself loosing his own soul in the end; his goods distributed among strangers.

Define Your Life

Life is more than working the 40-50 hour work-week only to be emotionally, spiritually and intellectually drained of all stamina for the Kingdom's work. Work cannot be the beginning and the end of life. While it is needful for mankind to work, even commanded, the end of the Christian life is not simply work, it is vocation within and apart from that 9 to 5 work-day.


If the Kingdom of God is going to advance, and the culture reversing itself from its grave yard spiral downward into total degeneracy, Christians must being to sacrifice the security of a big paycheck and a retirement pension for the building of The Kingdom.

That sacrifice is the True Liberation.
