Defining Morals and Values

Not everybody has the same definition for morals and values. George Barna (Executive Director of American Culture and Faith Institute) is asked to define what he means by the terms morals and values.

Chalcedon

Established in 1965, Chalcedon (kal-SEE-dun) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and Christian educational organization devoted to research, publishing, and promoting Christian reconstruction in all areas of life.

Chalcedon is geared to all who understand that Jesus Christ speaks to the mind as well as to the heart.

We believe that the whole Word of God must be applied to all of life. It is not only our duty as individuals, families and churches to be Christian, but it is also the duty of the state, the school, the arts and sciences, law, economics, and every other sphere to be under Christ the King. Nothing is exempt from His dominion. We must live by His Word, not our own.

Chalcedon is premised on the belief that ideas have consequences. It takes seriously the words of Professor F. A. Hayek:

“It may well be that scholars tend to overestimate the influence which we can exercise on contemporary affairs. But I doubt whether it is possible to overestimate the influence which ideas have in the long run.”

Chalcedon’s resources are being used to remind Christians of this basic truth: What men believe makes a difference.

“Therefore men should not believe lies, for it is the truth that sets them free” (John 8:32).

Chalcedon’s activities include foundational and leadership roles in Christian reconstruction. Our emphasis on the Cultural or Dominion Mandate (Genesis 1:28) and the necessity of a return to Biblical Law has been a crucial factor in the challenge to Humanism by Christians in this country and elsewhere. Chalcedon’s involvement in and commitment to Christian education began with its inception when founder Rousas John Rushdoony pinpointed the Christian and home schools as the most important institutions in reversing the influence of secular Humanism.

Our scholars speak regularly at conferences in America and overseas for various churches, schools, and private organizations. Chalcedon also hosts its own regional conferences across America.

In an era of uncertainty and fear of doom, Chalcedon presents a message of victory and envisions our age as a great opportunity for the consistent Biblical believer. A world that is increasingly pessimistic and disillusioned with the failure of secular Humanism is now feeling the impact of Christians who are exercising dominion and reclaiming lost spheres of authority for Christ the King.

Saturday Cinema – The Little Theater with the Big Picture

Saturday Cinema is a non-profit, independent, educational movie theater in central Pennsylvania showing cutting-edge documentary films to the community for the purpose of promoting a “Biblical World View” and lauding our Judeo-Christian heritage and it’s legacy of freedom and capitalism.

Each week’s showing includes a double feature highlighting a particular theme.

Film categories include: Christ, The Bible, Apologetics, Doctrine, History&Culture, Liberty/Tyranny, The Culture War, Education, The Environment, Economics, Islam, and Creation/Evolution.

Reservations may be made for private showings and special events by church, tea party, or pro-life groups etc.

Films are selected which challenge the common presuppositions of the viewer while exposing the prevailing narratives of academia, the culture, and the media, thus earning the title “The Home of Politically Incorrect Pictures”.

We do not necessarily endorse every aspect of every film, but we believe every film contains important and relevant components to a biblical understanding of our fallen world.

Saturday Cinema provides an opportunity for the audience to understand and apply biblical principles to all areas of life, and a vision to reclaim our heritage, reform the culture, and restore the American republic.

A book and video lending library serves to reinforce themes and address questions raised within the various film presentations. Over 300 titles on DVD are available at no rental fee to members of the “Video Lending Library”.

Many of the DVD’s featured on the PPN website are included and are accessed by pastors, homeschoolers, as well as individuals.

A special thank you to our film producers and studios who have graciously granted permission for public performances so Saturday Cinema movie-goers may attend the theater for free. Saturday Cinema is maintained through the free-will donations of attendees as well as purchases of snacks and drinks from the refreshment counter.

Saturday Cinema offers continuous showings from 8:00 AM ’till 4:00 PM every Saturday. The mini-theater has an art decor flavor, seats 25 and is uniquely located inside the West Annex of Saturday’s Market near Middletown, Pa.
