been a former reconstructionist, who knew Jim Jordan, Ray Sutton, has read
almost all of both, including North, Rushdoony DeMar, Grant, etc., I can say
firmly, that Reconstructionist do think its ok to lie in certain
circumstances. In fact so did the Puritans, who called it "holy deception"
and justified the practice in the context of saving innocent life during
typical Reconstructionist argument would be, "what would you do as a Dutch
Christian, if a Jew was hiding in your attic, and an Nazi officer asked you,
"are you hiding any Jews?"
As usual, the theonomy/reconstruc tion topic is a lively
I have a question about reconstructionists. I was once in a room
some people who were talking about a particular reconstructionist
don't want to say the name, as I do not want to cause slander
this end up not being true). One guy said that this
reconstructionist said it would be ok to lie about something if
would help them get into public office so that the work
reconstruction could begin. My question is, can anyone
confirm this story? Or is it just hogwash (I hope)? There
reconstructionists that think it's ok to lie, are there?
