||Vine & Fig Tree
is a non-profit educational organization with both a positive and a
- Positively, we
seek to bring about the fulfillment of the "Vine
& Fig Tree" prophecy of the Prophet Micah --
in our lifetime.
- We somewhat-humorously call this positive agenda The
- We understand this prophecy to describe the Christianization
of the entire world.
- Micah's prophecy envisions the spread of a traditional,
conservative morality, in a decentralized, family-centered
- We do not believe in the "separation
of church and state," but the
complete elimination of both of
these corrupt and corrupting institutions.
- This viewpoint has been called everything from "Patriarchy"
(Feel free to add your own label. We like being labeled more than
we like being ignored!)
- We know of no similar agenda on
the entire Internet.
- Negatively, we seek to
battle the most important and destructive Supreme Court-approved
trends of our day, some of which are set forth here.
- Some people think we are "negative," "judgmental"
and complain too much. We love these people. Being called
"judgmental" is a whole lot more fun than being ignored.

This is not an easy website. Not only are there more than 1,000
webpages, some of them are very controversial. They really make you think.
It's like being on an athletic team and the coach ordering you to do 1,000
push-ups. It's not like the coach thinks that at the big game this weekend
the teams are going to decide the championship by seeing who can do the
most push-ups. The coach just knows that it will be easier to hit a ball
over the wall in deep centerfield if you do your exercises
before the big game.
You don't have to agree with everything on this website to benefit from
it. Check everything you read here by the Scriptures; test the spirits (Acts
17:11; 1 John 4:1). But if you stretch your spiritual muscles it will
be easier to carry the Cross Christ asks you to carry. There's a lot of
spiritual muscle-building here, and it's more entertaining than a Jane
Fonda workout video.
- Although millions of Americans go to church every Sunday, more and
more Christians are disenchanted with the liturgies and rituals of
only-on-Sunday religion. If you fall in love with Micah's Vine
& Fig Tree vision you may be tempted to pull up
stakes and leave your church. That may
not be the best idea. On the other hand, if you feel that you're
entitled to go to heaven just because you planted yourself in a pew
every Sunday, you may be in need of some spiritual exercises:
- Should A Christian "Attend
- The Home-Church Debate
- Every Christian is a priest, every
Christian a pastor
- A World Without
- Most Americans believe that living in America is better than living
in any communist dictatorship, and most Americans believe that
capitalism is better than socialism, but few can explain why. As a
result, America is becoming more socialist. The Vine
& Fig Tree defense of laissez-faire capitalism will
make it easier for you defend the American idea of "limited
government," even if you choose not to go as far as we do. Ready
for some push-ups?
- Laissez-faire Capitalism
- A World without
- The Christian Anarchist
- America is the land of "Liberty
Under God." Our official national motto is "In
God We Trust." But a vocal minority of atheists have
convinced the Supreme Court that America's Founding Fathers intended
to create a secular nation with a wall
of separation between God and Government. Anyone who says religion
should be accommodated by the government is accused of trying to
"impose a theocracy." You're looking kinda flabby -- time
for some exercises:
- America was a Theocracy
- America should be a
- Atheists should not be allowed
to hold political office
- America's Laws were
Based on the Ten Commandments
- Court Decisions Banning the Ten
Commandments Should be Resisted
- But should we resist the increasingly anti-Christian federal
government with guns and bombs? If you even thought that for a second,
you need to do some spiritual sit-ups.
- Christians should be
- America's War for
Independence (1776) was unBiblical
- Deciding how "realistic" or "practical" the
"Vine & Fig Tree"
vision is depends on how big your God is. Many Christians pay
lip-service to the idea of God being "sovereign," but their
God just isn't powerful enough to bring about Micah's "Vine
& Fig Tree" vision without coming back to
earth, destroying everything and starting over. Besides, the ACLU
might be offended if God started fulfilling prophecies like Micah's.
How sovereign is your God? Is there a wall of separation between God
and society called "free will?" Is Man able to tell God to
back off and leave us alone? Push-ups, push-ups, push-ups!!
- God Interferes in Human
- God has predestined every molecule in the universe, including the
electrical impulses in your brain that you call "thoughts."
I dare you to use
your "free will" to click here.
- But even if God is sovereign, hasn't He predestined everything to
get worse and worse before the Second Coming of Christ? If we work for
the Christian Reconstruction of society, won't that just delay the
Second Coming? Wouldn't it be sinful, in fact, to try to
"bring in the Kingdom" by our own works?
This is going to take a lot of push-ups. Check
with your Physician.
Don't try all these exercises alone all at once. Please go through
them in order.
- The Second Coming has already taken place.
- We are already in The Kingdom.
- In fact, we're
already in heaven.
Again, you don't have to agree that we're already in heaven, but if you
work through those exercises, you'll find it a lot easier to believe what
the Bible says, and you'll agree that after doing these exercises, you'll
be strong enough to believe a lot more of what the Bible says than you
And isn't it your goal to believe as much of the Bible as you possibly
can? That's our goal as well.
We have worked hard to create this website, and we're
still working on it. If you feel you have been helped by our work,
