Recommending the work of E. Michael Jones...

Just now I added links for a number of periodicals David and I suscribe to. One is Fidelity/Culture Wars, a magazine edited by E. Michael Jones whom I met about thirty years ago at an Allies for Faith and Renewal conference in Ann Arbor. For years the magazine was called Fidelity, but it's been renamed Culture Wars. Mike's published a number of books out of the articles he first wrote for the magazine and I recommend most of them to you.

You should know that Mike is an orthodox Roman Catholic of a rather unique stripe. He believes that Biblical doctrine and faith in Jesus Christ often suffer at the hands of false apparitions like Medjugorje and false shepherds like any number of Roman Catholic hiercharchy including bishops, archbishops, cardinals, and...

Mike is no Protestant and denies the five solas of the Reformation as well as that doctrine by which the church stands or falls, justification by faith alone. Sad it is.

Yet Mike has taught me (and friends like the Liverpudlian Peter Jones and Muscovite Doug Wilson) very much about the culture and politics of our age we would never have learned had we made the mistake of so many Reformed men today who... limit their reading, writing, and talking to the Reformed Protestant ghetto.

To whet your appetite, here's a review Mike ran a few years ago of Randy Engel's book, The Rite of Sodomy: Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church. The review is long and stunning. Can you think of any other publication that would bring up the question whether or not the sodomite network of the Roman Catholic hierarchy managed to get one of its own onto the Seat of Peter?

Don't read this review if you make it a principle not "to analyze this present time" (Luke 12:54-56). Being unaccustomed to the burden that goes with discernment, you may find yourself unequal to the task and be disheartened by the demands made upon you, spiritually. The young shouldn't read it, either.

But if you aspire to church office or Titus 2 womanhood, considering that the whole world is out and about making nice about sodomy, it's quite right to balance your diet with a piece that makes ugly about sodomy. Truth is never the enemy of faith and repentance—of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I try to work in an E. Michael Jones' books twice a year. I highly recommend starting with Degenerate Moderns or Monsters from the Id. No one feeds the fire of discernment quite like Jones does. 

From that review:

...the solid allegations that 1.) Paul VI was the first active homosexual to ascend to the Chair of Peter...

The same pope who wrote Humanae Vitae?

>>The young shouldn't read it, either.

When you say young...?

That might be unclear.  I should just complete the question.  When you say young, how young do you mean, exactly?

Dear Malorie,

I wouldn't read it if I were you.

Love,

Reading Libido Dominandi right now, as are my students at Reformation Bible College.

RC, Jr., I wonder if you would be willing to share your RBC reading lists with me. I'm sure they would be very helpful as we continue to develop the curriculum at Athanasius College.

You all can probably press that I need another book about as much as I need another pair of shoes, but would you mind posting (even part) of the last publicly?

I read Libido Dominandi last year. Excellent. Changed my mind.
