James Madison observed that, “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power that knowledge gives.” Surely this truth has never been so painfully obvious than in the last two year of America’s explosive history. “Arming our people with knowledge” is the central objective of the “Christens Confronting the Culture Initiative (“CCC”),” which has now officially launched its unique educational enterprise.
The Christians Confronting the Culture Initiative is sponsored by the National Eagle Forum and the Blackstone Institute. The Initiative is a multi-purpose, multi-functional Initiative designed to serve audiences running the gamut from heavily academic to heavily activist, and to all groups in between. But all CCC materials, services, and activities revolve around a unifying theme - the long-range goal of arming American patriots with the power of knowledge necessary to confront the culture with the Judeo-Christian worldview in America’s current life-threatening Culture War.
The CCC Initiative also pursues immediate-range goals as dictated by the course and state of the Culture War engulfing America. The current immediate-range goal is to mobilize a highly skilled army of Judeo-Christian adherents to prevail in the 2020 elections. This success would move America both back to its Judeo-Christian roots and forward to future strength and prosperity as a revitalized Judeo-Christian society and nation.
Whichever goals are being pursued, CCC studies combine in a uniquely powerful way, the elements of stability and flexibility. Stability results from Blackstone’s always teaching basic immutable truth in any study. Flexibility results from CCC’s extraordinary ability and commitment to adapt rapidly and efficiently with new studies needed to address sudden crises in our law and culture when they erupt.
The CCC launched its initial services and activities in January, 2019. A long-range plan foresees a panoramic array of culture-confronting tools for the Judeo-Christian American. But available now, or in process of becoming available in the near future, are the services/activities listed below in two groups.
