The name of the Thomas Nation homeschool is called “The University of Righteousness.” The vision encompasses our girls being trained to become Proverbs 31 and Titus 2 women of God. Our boys, however, are being trained to be poet, warrior, statesmen for the Kingdom of God. Notions of duty, nobility, honor, responsibility, courage, and chivalry are their daily lessons.
In times past, I’ve asked the question, “Where are the George Pattons and Winston Churchills of this generation?” For Britain, they need to look no further than Mr. Hannan. May God protect this man, for he is indeed, a leader a time like this demands. This is the kind of leadership that is needed in America. We need principled men to stare Obama in the eye and declare the same self-evident truth.

ONE MILLION WOMEN’S VOICES
IN THE BATTLE AGAINST ROE V. WADE
“The pain I suffered was the worst physical and psychological pain I have ever experienced. I felt deceived and violated. I had no idea what abortion would do to me.” declares Lisa from Texas. Click here to read more of Lisa’s story
“As I left the abortion facility, I was told, “Everything will be alright. You can go on with your life. … My life was never the same. … I immediately went into a deep depression,” declares Cindy from Louisiana. Click here to read more of Cindy’s story
“I want women and men to know that you can never imagine the pain unless you’ve gone through it yourself. … I don’t want other women to experience the pain that I have had.” declares Rebecca from Florida. Click here to read more of Rebecca’s story

The Supreme Court is listening! Citing sworn testimony presented by The Justice Foundation, the Court upheld the federal ban on the gruesome, “partial-birth abortion”, procedure. The Court stated, “Whether to have an abortion requires a difficult and painful moral decision” and is “fraught with emotional consequence.”
The Court was right. Abortion has devastated us and millions of other women. The Supreme Court declared that abortion can cause “severe depression and loss of self-esteem,” but the Court also said there is no reliable data on the size of the problem at this time. That’s why we need your help to collect ONE MILLION VOICES.
Operation Outcry (www.operationoutcry.org), The Justice Foundation’s project to reverse Roe v. Wade, has already collected over 2,300 legally admissible testimonies. If you have had an abortion, join ONE MILLION VOICES by filling out the Declaration form. Click here to share your story.
Operation Outcry is calling forth ONE MILLION VOICES to demonstrate the magnitude of the harm from abortion. This legal evidence (Declarations) will be taken to the Supreme Court when it considers abortion again. You can choose to use your full name, first name or initials only. Your personal contact information will always be kept confidential.
“Join with us, as together we are…Touching Hearts, Changing Lives, and Restoring Justice.”

KLI MEDIA QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What are the three marks of Kingdom leadership?
The three marks are as follows: courage, biblical worldview, and vision. When it comes to courage, I remind the reader of two important truths. First, “Courage is not the absence of fear, but doing what is right in spite of our fears.” Second, “Courage, as a Christian virtue in its rawest form, is a willingness to die if necessary for the cause of Christ. In other words, if forced to choose between one’s life and one’s faith, true courage would inspire the choice of faith.” Christians must get over the suffering and death issues in order to effectually advance the cause of Christ in our poor-fallen world.
The second attribute for a Kingdom leader is Biblical worldview. In other words, a leader must view the burning issues of the day through the grid of God’s word, rather than a humanistic standard. Many Christians in America are more influenced in their worldview by their family background, ethnicity, education, political party system, or other profound influences in their lives. The challenge is to hold up those influences to God’s word, if they agree, honor and cherish them, if they don’t, they must be disregarded. Only a Biblical worldview can help a leader successfully navigate through the challenges of life by fitting into God’s reality, rather than hurling themselves against it.
The third virtue is vision. God’s word warns, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he” (Proverbs 29:18). Without vision from inspired leaders, people cast off restraint. They wander from God’s protective covering and end up in a moral freefall. They become spiritually and morally naked, which makes them vulnerable to enemies from within and from without. Jesus warned that a person can have perfectly functional eyes and yet not perceive reality. Leaders afflicted by this state, end up becoming the blind leading the blind. Thus both leader and follower will fall into a ditch.
What was your primary goal in writing your book?
First, I felt an obligation to pass on to the next generation all the precious truths that I had learned fighting the battle for the souls of men, the lives of children, and the future of our nation. Secondly, the book was written to reform the church to restore America to its righteous foundations. The premise being: you cannot have a tyrannical state, without the church first veering from the truth and thus fail in its mission.
Why did you choose the theme of Christian chivalry and knighthood?
Authentic manhood has been greatly damaged by the rise of feminism in America. It has helped to reinforce in the inherent weakness of men, which are passivity and irresponsibility. I chose the knighthood model to hopefully help men reclaim their masculine identity, manly responsibilities, and return to the male Christian ethic, which places women and children first. In other words, men are at their best laying down their lives for God, family, and country. The goal is to inspire men to move from being predators to becoming protectors, defenders, and proper coverings of women and children once again.
In your book you mention, “The crisis of our time is one of leadership.” Explain.
The underlying premise of the book is established upon this fundamental truth: God judges and restores nations based upon leadership. When the sayings and doings of a nation are against the Lord, the consequence is the nation is turned over to weak, inept, and wicked rulers. The culmination of this travesty is discovered in Isaiah 3:12, which states, “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.”
How would you describe President Obama’s leadership?
Obama is God’s man. The Lord placed him as President of the United States. Unfortunately, it is not for America’s welfare. He is a sign of God’s judgment and displeasure upon a nation that is gone a whoring after other gods and the vain philosophies of men. Obama is God’s ex-ray into the heart of our nation. He personifies the condition of our civil government that has betrayed their sacred truth by codifying evil into law and defending the indefensible, such as, the evil practices of abortion and homosexuality. He is also the Lord’s rebuke to His church that has drawn nigh to God with their lips, but their heart and obedience is far from Him.
Obama claims to be a Christian and yet supports policies that violate the commandments of God. It is the height of hypocrisy and our Lord reserved his hottest anger and most biting criticism against it. America is being subject to tyranny and unjust laws as a consequence of our idolatry. Thus, Obama has become the head of a new idolatrous cult, otherwise known as the federal government.
NEW MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY
Rebuilding the Altars and Relaying the Foundations
“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein (Jeremiah 6:16).”
As of late, many have contacted Elijah Ministries struggling within the Church with the fallout of our American culture taking its toll upon Christian homes, families, and children. Fatherlessness, single moms, wayward children, and host of other ills have devastated many in the Body of Christ. Many pastors feel helpless as they struggle to deal with a system that they have inherited that has produced such terrible fruit in the lives of believers
Precious brothers and sisters with tears in their eyes have asked “what can be done to undo the harm.” In response, Elijah Ministries has created a Reformation Weekend opportunity. For those Churches interested, Elijah Ministries will hold 4 sessions to deal with the roots of what has caused this evil and what we must do to rebuild the altars and relay the foundations that have crumbled within this generation.
The topics will cover authentic Biblical manhood, womanhood, educating our young, and creating the platform to launch an effective Christian antidote to help extract the poison destroying America. We must have a new wine skin to handle the new wine of change that is desperately needed to change the course of our beleaguered nation.
To those interested in scheduling a Reformation Weekend at your Church, feel free to contact us with the information below. There are no fees for the Reformation Weekend. It is based upon a love offering.
