  1. I would like to know if there are any books with Idealist Postmillennialism that you and Dr. Rushdooney hold. I was a Pretribulational Premillennialist, a view that I no longer adhere to.

  2. Pastor Sandlin, I really like your article on “What you owe your Pastor” I am a missionary in Africa Zambia and am putting together a small book for Pastors and their wives to encourage them and would love to get permission to use your article. I would endorse your name on it.

    1. My friend,

      It’s great to hear about the article and your book. Feel free to use anything I’ve written as long as it is not revised. You may simply put that I am president of the Center for Cultural Leadership.

  3. Pastor Sandlin you gave me permission to use your article some 6 months ago in my book that I was writing and compiling. The book has been well embraced in Africa and so has your article. Should I get the opportunity to put this book on Amazin.com, may I still use your article ? If yes, what else would you like me to add to your name? Warm regards Gisela (missionary pastor) in Zambia

  4. Mr. Sandlin,
    Am trying to contact you but don’t see a form on your site.
    Can we chat via email? I have a couple follow-up questions.
    Thank you.

  5. I discovered your site on accident when I googled “Cultural Hegemony and Democrats”. Your site and efforts are indispensable and should be required reading for all Christians. Thank you for your work and may God bless it and expand it’s borders!

  6. I blog quite often and I really appreciate your
    content. The article has really peaked my interest. I will take
    a note of your blog and keep checking for new information about once per week.
    I opted in for your Feed too.

  7. Good afternoon;
    This comment is for Dr. P. Andrew Sandlin, concerning his interview with Dan Elmendorf of Redeemer Broadcasting on December 5th. Frist, Harry Truman was a Baptist. I don’t have the authority to judge the sincerity of his confession or the orthodoxy of the Baptist “religion”, but historically, he is considered to be a Baptist. Small inaccuracies like that, without qualification, disturb me. Second, regarding the conversation that you overheard in the men’s room, I’m not certain that you grasp the overarching notion of what was being conveyed. Words like “religion” can, and perhaps rightfully so, go out of fashion. In the 19th cen. preachers like Spurgeon used the word frequently, with a particular understanding associated to it. Today the word implies dry, lifeless, ritualistic, practice which is only meaningful to a small community of those who are stealth in the language and practice. These “men’s room” conversations are intended, by those enthusiastic about sharing their faith, to draw people out who have either been hurt by “religion” or have no association other than their own subjective world view and imagination. I commend the guy (I assume it was a guy) in the men’s room for broaching the subject and for attempting to find some common ground. As far as your condemnation of the, “best buddy” relationship we may have with the sovereign God, it grieves me that you don’t understand that. Where would anyone get such a crazy idea? Perhaps from John 15:14. I wouldn’t expect you to understand this, coming from an intellectual perspective, or for perhaps never having experienced that dynamic of intimacy with God, but this is the very sort of “relationship” that God is drawing us into, as expressed in His word. Now I understand that this notion can be trivialized substantially, and the pendulum can fly off way to far in that direction, but can you likewise concede that the opposite, stale, lifeless notions of orthodox faith can be, and in fact are equally contrary to what Christ’s passion has gained for us. If I understand the gospel, Christ is not only calling me into a friendship, but into a love relationship with all it’s dynamics exclusive of sex, which we obviously don’t fully understand. I do agree, if this be you implication, that our present day cultural experiment has largely erased the distinction between sex and love, but to push back by erasing the beauty could be equally deteriorating. I don’t think that you waited around in the men’s room long enough to hear the end of that conversation, and in fact we may never know it until in glory, but doesn’t the meager effort have any merit? After all, we don’t believe that it’s our perky effort of convincing that rescues anybody…do we?? There is a deeper principle being sacrificed here that I lack the time, energy or subtilty to express right now. It would genuinely grieve me, though, if you would fail to recognize it.
    Call me. Or even better, come to Hudson, NY. We’ll have coffee at Cascades and arm wrestle each other toward enlightenment – haha – just kidding. Afterwards you can go have coffee with Dan and tell him about this screwball cabinetmaker that you met. He’ll already know but it will be worth the laugh. Did you know that, “laughter is as a medicine”?

    1. Dear Arthur, thank you so much for taking the time to write. I appreciate your interaction.

      In a short interview, no interviewee can qualify everything, just as you cannot say everything in your response. But note the following:

      If memory serves, I said Truman did not have a *credible* profession of faith. Unless you believe that a man notorious for filthy, godless language can also be credibly Christian, I think you might agree with my qualification.

      Second, I was using the term “religion” in terms of its etymology and as it used in the Bible which, after all, is alone normative.

      Third, I am certain that I did not state that an individual, subjective relationship with Jesus Christ is unnecessary. All to the contrary. I strongly stressed relationship defined as covenant which, in my view, the Bible plainly does.

      Thank you again for writing, and for listening to that program. It means a great deal to me.

    2. Can you supply a link to this interview/podcast? I can’t find it doing a Google search.

      Thanks,

      Brian
