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. ...

Hey Herman,
Just what is wrong with following the plain spoken Word of God? On what basis have I interpreted Scripture? On the basis of Scripture interpreting Scripture. I'm not playing semantics with you - you'll have to play alone. May the good Lord open His people's eyes to the truth that all laws are based upon something and in order to live peaceful, happy lives, laws should be based upon His Word or the general equity found in it.
FYI - Here's a link to an article by RC Sproul Jr. on Mr. Phillips: Giving Honor to Whom Honor Is Due: http://highlandsministriesonline.org/kingdom-notes/giving-honor-to-whom-honor-is-due/

Agreed, your exasperation is self-evident.
The good news is that you can cure it!

If you stopped repeating the evident untruth that you "simply" follow the law of God, when you simply do not - then it would not be incumbent on a multitude of other people (for almost 20 years!) to continue to point out the obvious (e.g. mixed fibres) to show you your falsehood.

The fact is that nobody "simply" follows the law of God, not even pharisaic or hassidic Jews.

Whether someone is a biblical Christian holding to the Reformed Confessions of old, - or a theonomist, or a follower of new covenant theology, or dispensationalism, or charismaticism, or pentecostalism, - or whatever they all follow their own, highly nuanced, interpretation of the law.

The key issue is, on what basis have you interpreted?
And, having done so, do you represent the basis of your own nuanced interpretation honestly?

Hey Christopher,
I have a pet peeve about folks who try to take a serious discussion about the authority of Christ and His Word and turn it into a silly discussion about wearing clothes made out of mixed fibers. I have heard that lame comment for almost 20 years now and at my age I'm running out of patience. It also occurs to me that if Howard Phillips had sat around doing nothing regarding his beliefs, folks would be applauding him. But since the man motivated possibly thousands of Christians to get involved in government, folks think it is alright to express nonsense in the comment section of an article announcing the man's death. And for those reading this that do not live in the united States, please remember that being an American Christian is unique. We have a legacy from the War for Independence that is Biblical and we don't take kindly to folks making wise cracks about our Christian heritage.

Dear Angela...wow...taking into consideration all of the disagreements I have witnessed, especially before the past Presidential election, this is the first time I have seen you upset. I don't even know what the comment about mixed fibers meant but it must have been serious.
There's nothing wrong with it, of course, I'm just making the observation because I was surprised, given your very pleasant, soft history.
Theres really no point to this post, I guess...ha-ha...I just like when people stand up for themselves and dont take any grief.

Herman:
You don't advance much of a substantive conversation by simply saying you all and most people don't know anything. Tell us what you know. What theonomists claim you can't wear mixed threads today? How do you classify that prohibition...moral, civil or ceremonial injunction? If you don't view yourself as a theonomist, what are you...an autonomist? How do you describe yourself?

Herman, I really don't understand where you are coming from. There are different nuances of theonomy. Please don't lump as all together. My beliefs are shaped by the Westminster Confession and other historical reformed confessions. Perhaps we both jumped to conclusions? I try to help expose those in error or outright heresy.

Howard Phillips had a sound grasp on theonomy and I believe he was sound in the reformed faith.

May the good Lord raise up more men like him to help educate and motivate Americans to contend for God's righteous, good law to prevail in America.

Herman, my Theonomist friend:
Yes..I understand. While you consider theonomy to a strict enforcement of all OT laws to civil government, most folks, and certainly secularists, would describe you by this term. You and Howard Phillips and Angela would get along fine.

I am highlighting your deliberate dishonesty:-

You know, and I know, that's not true.
I am no fool and you do not dupe me.
No wonder you are throwing insults; there should be a law against that.

joe lee wrote:
Herman:
What do you think our laws should be based on since God's moral laws set out in Scripture apparently is not worthy in your mind?
You evidently do not understand theonomy. I do hold to God's moral law as the normative basis for laws in all human society. That is precisely why I am not a theonomist.

Dear Jim, I am trying to count to ten before I respond... Okay, I think I can calmly respond and point out that we all have different callings - mine is as a wife, mother and grandmother. If a Christian is called to be a legislator (or civil magistrate) then we as a nation (or people) are blessed. BTW - I am happy to admit of being a theonomist, which simply means I believe in following God's Law. Do you have a problem with this?

Let's hope that trail isn't one of Theonomy. Politics should be a hobby not a life calling for a Christian. This fellow could be a much better example, for Republicans anyway, Harold E. Stassen, Who Sought G.O.P. Nomination for President 9 Times, Dies at 93.

Mark 10
8 AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH; consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh.
9 "What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."---NASB

If the first story is true, Mr. Phillips failed miserably in his personal life.

Thanks Rufus... Your remarks about Mr. Phillips are correct. Here's a link to an interview Eric Holmberg did with Mr. Phillips: http://www.forerunner.com/revolution/howard.html
He was a trailblazer... May we continue the work he and others like Dr. Francis Schaeffer began. In Lord Jesus Name, I pray. Amen.

For a minute, I thought Philip Howard (very well know to all, I think) had died! Good to know he's still kicking.
Now, who is this guy? I've never heard anything about him. What college did he play football for? Or was he a tennis player at Wimbledon? Or won a few Master Tournaments knocking the little white ball into the holes?
Maybe I'm a little dense, OK, but I don't get it--why is this guy worth any mention at all?
But I like the input on loud worship. Too bad electric speakers and amplifiers had not been invented in the Old Testament.
Howard Phillips was a founder of the Constitution Party and Presidential Candidate. You have not heard of him as America has a controlled election process and the mainstream media has a biased towards the two-party/one-party system. One of his sons, Doug Phillips, is a leader of Vision Forum which is a very popular publication within Christian, particularly reformed Christian, circles. As best I can tell, in these times where there are so few, Howard Phillips was an honorable man, father, husband and patriot.

If you mean Philip Nicholas Charles Howard, former Literary Editor of The Times, You're right. The two men do indeed resemble each other as well as have similar names. I had to use search engines to find out who you were referring to. Before today I had never heard of either of these men.

For a Christian perspective on Mr. Phillips passing, check this out from Christian News Network:

Phillips was born into a Jewish family in 1941. In his adulthood, he later came to believe in Jesus as the messiah and converted to Christianity.

“I guess the thing I’m most thankful for is that Howard Phillips, by God’s grace, died a Christian. I remember talking to him from time-to-time over the years about this matter,” stated friend John Lofton in remembering Phillips’ life. “Sometimes I used humor telling him once something like, ‘C’mon, Howard, give it up. Everybody else in your family is a Christian! They’ve got you surrounded! So, come out with your hands up and nobody will get hurt.’”
