Veteran Conservative Leader Howard Phillips Dies at 72

Born in 1941 and raised in the Boston area, Howard Phillips (shown) graduated from Harvard University in 1962. Always a conservative activist, he won election twice as Harvard’s student council president. A Jewish convert to the Christian Reconstruction movement, he and wife Peggy (née Blanchard, a lifelong Catholic) raised six children and were fortunate to enjoy many grandchildren.

A lifelong activist for conservative causes, Phillips rose from precinct worker to campaign manager, congressional aide, chairman of the Boston-area GOP, and assistant to the GOP’s national chairman. A determined and knowledgeable student of the U.S. Constitution, he delivered many speeches about America’s “law of the land” to numerous groups, including The John Birch Society. ...

"When good men die the wicked should reflect that there is so much the less salt left to preserve society. There is one pleader less for the preservation of the barren tree. Every saint taken home brings the world so much nearer its end. Much as they may despise the godly, the deaths of righteous men ought to be solemn warnings to the thoughtless world, as they reflect upon what must happen to the world when those who are its light and its salt are taken away."
C. H. Spurgeon, Flowers From A Puritan's Garden

Thanks, Joe Lee, for a great quote and for getting the comment back on the subject of the article, Howard Phillips, and not on these various rabbit trails some here continue to run down. Can we show a little respect and civility? His son, Doug Phillips of Vision Forum in San Antonio, just might read these comments. Can we show some decency while he grieves the loss of his father?

Rest in Peace, Howard Phillips. You fought the good fight.

Oh yes, the Constitution Party, the one that has different names in different states, the one that has no one representing it in Congress or any of 50 State Legislatures, it received 120,000 votes in 2012 Presidential Election where Obama got nearly 66 million, Romney 61 million.
Right, I got it.
A very important but minor player in the overall US political scene.

Great Britain is an excellent example where theonomy hasn't worked! Especially if Scotland and Northern Ireland as looked upon as examples. I do like to remind some of you of your heritage as English Dissenters.

Gentlemen, there is an excellent book out called History of the Reformation in the Sixteenth Century, Vol 2 by J. H. Merle D'Aubigné (This is a site for an ebook, of the this series, and unfortunately I don't believe it is complete, but fortunately, I think you can get the parts for that cover Luther, and the English Reformation) take a look at it. Good stuff, and if you have a few pounds to spend you might want to pick up a printed copy of his works.

Very good point, John U.K., there have been many ideas about ecumenism, a bane to the present day church, e.g., Promise Keepers and the Rising Tide of Ecumenism. A theocracy will be established when Christ returns. The Inadequacy of Moralism which Mr. Phillips and other theonomists want just make Christians look like Muslims
Thomas Ice wrote:
Current postmillennialist Gary North admits:

Optimism is not enough! In fact, optimism alone is highly dangerous. The Communists have a doctrine of inevitable victory; so do most Muslims. So did a group of revolutionary communist murderers and polygamists, [Ah, so-called!] the Anabaptists who captured the German city of Munster from 1525- 35, before they were defeated militarily by Christian [?} forces. Optimism in the wrong hands is a dangerous weapon.

excerpt from, The Unscriptural Theologies Of Amillennialism And Postmillennialism.

So, theonopists such as Mr. Phillips are as negative to Christianity as the "Anabaptists," mentioned

Since the turn of the century, eighteen (and counting) western countries now recognize same gender marriage. For the first time in recorded history, the Devil and his minions have finally united.
In contrast, Christianity has never been so divided. One report suggests that there are upwards of 41,000 Christian denominations and independent churches.
Reference: Gordon-Conwell Center for the Study of Global Christianity.
Perhaps Christ is scourging Christiandom for its disobedience to his prayer that the church be one.
Phillips tried as best he could to pull it together, but thousands of Christian sheep who didn't perfectly agree with his conservative platform mainly bit and spat on him. Now look at how far we've fallen.
The scourge of the churches is bible ignorance and those you proudly parade it on boards like this one!

Since when did the Lords prayer in John 17 mean visible unity?

Hey SteveR, When I was in the CP the main topics were the sanctity of life and keeping the Sovereignty of the Lord in the platform. I left in 2005 and cannot comment on what the meetings are like now, but please know that it is an ecumenical organization and different religious beliefs caused much strife. My opinion is that while Mr. Phillips and others of his generation began the movement toward Christian political activism, it is our responsibility to continue what they began and learn from their mistakes. May the good Lord bless the work Mr. Phillips began - however He sees best.
It might be just my local chapter, but evident. I do agree we should continue in this work

Why do so many of you get off the topic at hand with these petty little comments? Howard Phillips was a great American who ran for President three different times on a party (US Taxpayers Party/ Constitution Party) platform that any God-fearing Christian could support with a clear conscience.
They should consider the platform, however have you ever been to one of their meetings? Few if any Christians, its a room full of people that have ONE interest

The unoffical motto I heard there was something like...if not at the ballot box, then on to the shell box

I don't even know what the comment about mixed fibers meant but it must have been serious.
Christopher, I believe what herman was referring to was the law of God found here:

Leviticus 19:19 KJV
19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.

and

Deuteronomy 22:11 KJV
11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

What point herman was making I am not sure, but maybe he thinks a theonomist should obey all the revealed laws of God throughout the scripture.

Why do so many of you get off the topic at hand with these petty little comments? Howard Phillips was a great American who ran for President three different times on a party (US Taxpayers Party/ Constitution Party) platform that any God-fearing Christian could support with a clear conscience. How different things would be now had more people been willing to vote for the best man in the race instead of as Howard put it " the evil of two lessers." I felt privileged to cast my vote for him every time he ran for President. Those who say his life was a waste know not of what they speak. He did more for this country than most of us ever will. "Blessed in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints."

Just what is wrong with following the plain spoken Word of God?
There you go again. Substituting the word "plain" for "simply" is playing a semantic game.

Angela Wittman wrote:
On what basis have I interpreted Scripture? On the basis of Scripture interpreting Scripture.
Everyone 'claims' to do that. It does not give a divine stamp of approval to your own (or borrowed) interpretive choices.

Angela Wittman wrote:
I'm not playing semantics with you -
You have made it very clear that you have been playing semantics for almost 20 years with many people. You have demonstrated that for almost 20 years you have been unteachable, and that your exasperation and anger rises up repeatedly, and how swiftly you turn to insults and false accusations as if there was no law at all.

I fear that you will continue in this manner, and so I will not respond to you further at this time as it seems to provoke the worst in you.

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
