While the lion’s share of the focus of the Corona (COVID-19) virus is on how to prevent it, contain it, survive it or cure it, the discussion also includes how it began. In other words, the entire focus is on the physical issues concerning it. Not many are discussing the real reason behind Corona. Pandemics have been part of human history for as long as human history has existed. As a result of the fall of man pandemics were going to [...]

Initiative

By |2020-02-12T23:11:31+00:00February 12th, 2020|Uncategorized|

Every initiative must be attached to a concrete plan of action. The plan must have clear goals including a way to measure whether or not those goals are met. Measurability is essential. The word “initiative” means "to begin something". Those individuals with initiative have the power to rightly assess a situation and then formulate a plan of action to address that situation. To have initiative lends itself to people who take active charge of a project in order to get the job [...]

The Mechanics of Recon Organization & Execution

The Action Item Method The Christian Reconstructionist must be a Biblical strategist. While thinking God’s thoughts after Him is essential, the Reconstructionist must be able to transfer his ideas into action. This is accomplished by adopting an “Action Item” methodology. Ideas on how to reconstruct any area of the culture must be transformed into measurable actions. This is done by breaking down the idea into specific concrete steps so that anyone can easily follow the plan to realize its end goal. Simply [...]

Tactical Recon: Kingdom Promotion

Once you have a clear understanding of the issues that face your community you can begin to promote yourself within your community. Promotion is one of the tactics that will position you in your community as a knowledgeable and influential individual. At the outset it is important that you understand that when we speak of seeking self-promotion, we are actually seeking to promote Christ and a Biblical world view and not ourselves. Consider yourself the vehicle, or tool, for the Kingdom’s promotion. [...]

Tactical Recon: Concreteness

By |2019-08-22T19:55:11+00:00December 4th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Most knowledge is abstract. Every thought begins in the mind as an abstract idea or notion. Abstract thinking is one of the unique characteristics of human beings created in God’s image and it is critical for the creation of concrete things.  Yet, when abstract thinking remains within the realm of the abstract world it loses its power. For example: When a child is taught that 2+2=4 he may understand the concept. He may even be able to add many numbers to one [...]

Tactical Recon: Making Ideas Happen

By |2019-08-22T19:55:28+00:00July 5th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Once we have developed a significant rapport with our community, and its leaders, by making ourselves visible and trustworthy, we can then begin to transition from the discussion of ideas to the implementation of those ideas. This is where the real work begins. It is far easier to discuss ideas and possibilities than it is to actually execute them. Once an idea “hits the street” the real vetting begins. IDEAS DON’T JUST HAPPENAn idea doesn’t become a reality all by itself. [...]

When we seek to build influential rapport in any community we must know the players of that community. A relationship with those that hold power and esteem in the community need to be developed.Know the players and you can structure your interaction with them accordingly for the best possible outcome. Knowing the influential people in your community is the key to positioning yourself as a “shaker and a mover” (i.e. someone that can be trusted, with insight and integrity to get a [...]

Tactical Recon: Credentials

By |2019-08-22T19:55:41+00:00June 13th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Credentials and InfluenceWe live in an age where credentials matter. Professional credentials are an indication that the individual holding those credentials has been educated, trained and tested as to their knowledge and proficiency in that particular discipline. Credentials say to the outside world, “I have studied, been tried and tested, and have been found by other professionals proficient in my area of study whereby I am now to be considered an expert.”If nothing else credentials prove that the individual has gone [...]

Tactical Recon: Listen & Convey

By |2019-08-22T19:55:45+00:00June 6th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Listen carefully; and then listen some more. No one likes to be preached to. As Christians we are naturally ready (or should be ready) to give an apologetical answer for every question that others may ask concerning Scripture, and its application to the real world. However, when seeking to build rapport with those in your community, you must suppress the urge to argue them into what you are proposing. The more you try to convince someone, if you have not developed [...]

Tactical Recon: Rapport & The Human Element

By |2019-08-22T19:55:50+00:00May 31st, 2018|Uncategorized|

It’s All about Human ContactChristian Reconstruction was never meant to be impersonal but rather relational. Institutions are not persons in the sense that they cannot be related to as one would relate to another human being. You cannot build rapport with institutions. Institutions are comprised of people. If an institution is to be transformed the people of that institution need to be transformed first. The way this is accomplished is by building a positive relationship with its administrators. For instance: The institution [...]
