Our Magnum Opus:
Micah's radical vision of Vine & Fig Tree is set forth in great detail in this work, which spans the Bible from Genesis to Revelation:
These seven themes are the foundation for these soon-to-appear Internet Books:
The Patriarchal Society set forth in the Bible and exemplied by Micah's Vine & Fig Tree vision may be described by the Hebrew word "Shalom." Peace, wholeness, Christian conciliation. It can happen; it must happen; it is going to happen.
Vine & Fig Treestands for the proposition that the Bible advocates the elimination of the institutions of Church and State. These publications help show the Biblical basis for a radically decentralized personalist communitarian society.
Micah's vision, from the perspective of an arbitrator/peacemaker.
Vine & Fig Treeadvocates the elimination of the State and its "system" of "justice." This is a book-length exposition of 1 Corinthians 6:1-11, which incorporates the exegesis and insights of over 35 respected Christian commentators on the passage. It argues that the Vine & Fig Tree Vision underlies Paul's command to Christians not to resort to pagan courts.
The idea of eliminating all political systems is met with alarm, even by "tax-protesting" "Christian Patriots." In their crusade against "commerce," they have demonized the Lex Mercatoria, or Law Merchant.
The Law Merchant was a system of non-political, voluntary arbitration of commercial disputes which existed in the Middle Ages. It is evidence that a global obedience to I Corinthians 6 is possible. This book examines the history of commerce before the rise of nation-states and shows that decentralized, patriarchal societies can more efficiently and peacefully carry out the Dominion Mandate than a world dominated by "archist" structures such as the State.
The Harvard University Negotiation Project studied techniques of conflict resolution and entitled their study Getting to Yes. While their techniques and insights are valuable, they are but vague shadows of a full-orbed Christian concept of conflict resolution. That concept is presented here. In a nutshell, peaceful co-existence of human beings does not depend on the existence of a well-armed Nation-State or global government.
The publications above are somewhat "theoretical." The publications below are more "practical."
Christian Conciliation finds its greatest obstacle in the institutions of church and State. Would-be patriarchs are intimidated into servicelessness by claims of authority and professionalism by agents of church and State. All the responsibilities of the Ministry of Reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:17-21) are given to "laymen."
Beginning where the volume above leaves off, those who occupy ecclesiastical positions are given suggestions as to how to equip "laymen" for their task as conciliators, and how "Priests" and "Pastors" can then themselves move up to the position of "laymen" and Godly Patriarch.
Also beginning where we left off with the "layman," the Attorney is shown that he is a king under Christ, with a call to justice. This publication shows how to turn an ordinary law-practice into a Christian Patriarchy.
Biblical critique of such concepts as Prison, Capital Punishment, and how the Patriarch should bring the message of Reconciliation to those who commit crimes. Theories tested by nearly 10 years of experience with violent and non-violent criminals in a Catholic Worker House of Hospitality.
A practical introduction to Christian Patriarchy. How an average, low-grade American can raise grandsons to be Patriarchs like Abraham, who was respected by kings of nations, was "rich in cattle and gold," and exercised evangelistic hospitality to over 1,000 homeless people at a time.
A program of Scripture Meditations designed to enhance patriarchal Godliness and begin the process of personal transformation which will result in a generation of society-shaping Christian Patriarchs.
An Historical and Theological Examination of the "12 Steps" of Alcoholics Anonymous, their compatibility with radical Patriarchal Christianity, and the crippling dilution of the program by demonic "new age" mythology and trendy pop-psychology.
Most Christians today are addicted to "church membership." A Biblical Critique of the institutional "church" is integrated with a 12-Step program which moves people out of churches, back to their homes, and into God's world.
A 12-Step program for "adult children of the State" -- people who were taught that the State is a "divine institution" and are recovering from its destructive model of violence, vengeance, and domination from which we have all learned so much, and have become "co-dependent."
The incredible violent and fascist origins of "The Sexual Revolution," exposing how we have all been influenced by the "New Morality," how Playboy has shaped how even Christians think about sex, and a 12-step program to overcome lust and addictive fornication.
Premillennialism -- the eschatological perspective which holds that Jesus could come at any moment to set up a hierarchical rule in Jerusalem -- is held to by as many as 50- to 80-million Fundamentalists and Evangelicals. The view has infected many mainline Protestants and Catholics as well.
Following J. Stuart Russell, this work argues against the notion of a re-incarnation or "second coming" of Christ and establishment of hierarchical "Christian" kingdom based in Jerusalem. Shows that "Second Coming" texts which have been misused throughout church history were intended to strengthen the Apostolic Church by promising the imminent "coming" of Christ in judgment against statist pharisaism, freeing the Church to re-create Edenic Patriarchy.
Building on the volume above, this publication shows that modern pre-millennialism, ritualism, ecclesiocentrism, etc., are holdovers from Judaism (specifically, Pharisaism, or Talmudism), and how Jesus destroyed this religion in A.D. 70. This work has nothing to do with any Semitic people as such.
Judaism is not the only ancient religion which haunts us today. This publication shows how so-called "new age" concepts were invented by ancient opponents of Biblical Faith who sought to cripple and enslave the masses in the service of archist political and ecclesiastical systems. Modern "new-agers," such as Maurice Strong, are again attempting to enslave Christians to the corporate-political machines of the "New World Order." Christ inaugurated the true New Age, and is overthrowing the old world order which the "new agers" are vainly attempting to resuscitate.
Numerous smaller Bible studies on various subjects are available.

Radical Predestination is the basis for radical personal and social change.
We trust the State because we do not trust God.
We are addicted to the promises of men because we do not believe the Word of God.
There really is a God.
Not a "force." God.
The God of Moses, Isaiah, and Jesus is the One, True God.
Man is not God.
