Restore the Law: Responding to Lawlessness God's Way Part 3-The Magdeburg Confession
November 5, 2020
APN presents "Restore the Law: Responding to Lawlessness God's Way- The Magdeburg Confession".

Here's what one writer had to say about this document: "If there is one positive to be taken from the tyrannical and anti-Christian government policies that characterize the times we live in, it is perhaps the fact that it forces Christians to delve deeper into historical sources for enlightenment on properly reacting to evil government. When pastor Matthew Trewhella of Mercy Seat Christian Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was researching the historic Christian doctrine of the lesser magistrate, he read references to the 1550 Magdeburg Confession in his sources and literature, but was unable to locate an English translation of it. The reason for this was, as he would find out, and perhaps shockingly, that this important doctrinal confession had never been translated into English.1 He combined forces with classicist scholar Dr. Matthew Colvin and Presbyterian minister Rev.

Restoring the Law-Part 2: Responding to Lawlessness God's Way: The Fiction of Judicial Supremacy
October 22, 2020
On Oct. 22, the American Pastors Network invited Pastor Matt Trewhella to join us for another conference call on our "Restore the Law" initiative. During this second call, he discussed the fiction of Judicial Supremacy. He explained the history of the Supreme Court and shared information about how "the federal judiciary and the Supreme Court have brought ‘societal transformation without representation’ to America. They are the tyrant. And the other branches of government have foolishly allowed them to get away with it." -Pastor Matt Trewhella
