This Initiative – the “CCC” – is, in the words of James Madison, dedicated to “arming our people to be their own governors with the power that knowledge gives.” Thus, the CCC reveals, analyzes, and critiques the most controversial and dangerous battles ripping apart contemporary American law and society. Particular emphasis is placed on the leadership role of American law and judges in this Culture War. When widely distributed, this knowledge translates into immense power as CCC’s tools demonstrate the superiority of the Judeo-Christian worldview over the Humanistic worldview and reveal strategies for Judeo-Christian victories.
"Academics without action is dead; action without academics is deadly.” The Christianity Confronting the Culture Initiative overcomes this deadly dichotomy by joining the resources of three leading academic and activist enterprises in a collaborative battle for truth and the constitutionalist position, advocating the originalist approach to the Constitution and its Judeo-Christian foundation. This joint initiative includes Houston Christian University (academics), the Eagle Forum (activism) and the Blackstone Institute for Law and Worldview (the creator and coordinator of the CCC). Uniquely effective synergistic power is generated by this partnership.
The CCC offers a program that is streamlined and simple, yet strong, including tools that may vary as national needs change. But the foundational truths of the Judeo-Christian worldview are always basic. Four issues are a top priority: religious liberties, abortion and life issues, evolutionism v. creationism, and the new sexualism.
CCC’s current educational program focuses on the "Taproot of Truth" study series and includes the following components:
