Bottom Line

  • Our God Loves to Work

    Our God Loves to Work


    “Our God Loves to Work” Work is not part of the curse. It preceded sin and the fall of man, and Jesus taught that work is eternal. Heaven is no retirement village in the sky; it is where God’s work will be done more efficiently because sin is gone. Like removing sand from the gears…

  • Wealth and the Family Unit

    Wealth and the Family Unit


    “Wealth and the Family Unit” God is a “Family Man.” He works through the family and is connected to the structure of the family. We are born again into relationship with Him as our Father and with fellow Christians as brothers and sisters who are being appren­ticed into co-running the family business. This apprenticeship is…

  • Godly Stewardship Produces Growth

    Godly Stewardship Produces Growth


    “Godly Stewardship Produces Growth” God has called us to be kings (rulers) and priests (intercessors), and anything that destroys or blunts either possibility is not from God. Without the responsible stewardship of private property, the ability for self-rule and productivity is lost. This is the practical effect of socialism—it destroys man’s rulership capacities and personal…

  • Becoming a Liberator

    Becoming a Liberator


    “Becoming a Liberator” How does one find what God wants them to become an expert in amidst a jungle of social problems? The answer is simple, and it employs two biblical principles. First, what issues have captured your heart? In Ephesians 3:1, the Apostle Paul says, “For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ…

  • Deceived by a False Heaven

    Deceived by a False Heaven


    In 2024, Dennis Peacocke’s monthly Bottom Line commentaries will feature excerpts from our catalogue of books. “Deceived by a False Heaven” Few deceptions have undermined the Church’s commitment to rule on earth as much as the strange notions many Christians have led us to believe about our future in heaven. Heaven, and the saints’ ultimate…

  • Where Will You Draw the Line?

    Where Will You Draw the Line?


    A coalescing of political, economic, medical, and spiritual forces has given our world a historic epoch yet to be defined. I foresaw this phenomenon (minus the COVID crisis) and wrote about it ten years ago in my book, On the Destiny of Nations. I referred to it as the “Great Reset” that would accompany a…

  • Is Western Civilization Worth Saving?

    Is Western Civilization Worth Saving?


    When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do? —Psalm 11:3 Thirty-seven years ago, I wrote my first book, Winning the Battle for the Minds of Men, to assure Christians that we could and would block the attacks coming against the church through the proper application of God’s principles. I wanted to turn…

  • Abortion: What Does It Mean to Be Alive?

    Abortion: What Does It Mean to Be Alive?


    Abortion: What Does It Mean to Be Alive? For in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, “For we also are His descendants.” —Acts 17:28 As a nation, the US remains divided over the issues surrounding abortion. There are massive amounts of literature and commentary on…

  • Principle Twelve: The Bridge of Trust

    Principle Twelve: The Bridge of Trust


    The last of our Twelve Master Principles is the Bridge of Trust. Next to Master Principle #1: Transcendence, it is perhaps the most important of the twelve. Ultimately, all human interaction is mediated across the “bridge of trust” that exists between people. Obviously, the greater the trust, the stronger the bridge. The stronger the bridge,…

  • Principle Eleven: Results-Based Reality

    Principle Eleven: Results-Based Reality


    In many ways, results-based reality is similar to what is commonly called, the “scientific method,” in that ideas are measured for their truth or effectiveness by the consistent results they produce when carefully applied to various situations or applications. The Scriptures, by the way, are the “father” or primary source of this methodology of truth…

  • Principle Ten: Justice-Equality

    Principle Ten: Justice-Equality


    This month’s Bottom Line is an excerpt from Dennis Peacocke’s contribution to Uli Kortsch’s book, The Next Money Crash and a Reconstruction Blueprint, available now on Amazon.  Humanity’s cry for justice and equality has been historic in virtually every people group. The establishment of social customs and laws everywhere attests to this reality. The challenges associated with…

  • Principle Nine: Limits

    Principle Nine: Limits


    The principle of limits cannot be overemphasized as an essential guide for successful living, both personally and socially. Limits protect us from destructive thoughts and actions. Properly applied, they spur us on to new levels of maturation and the excitement of challenge and change. The concept of limits is extraordinary because it carries opposite meanings…

  • Principle Eight: Localism–Centralization

    Principle Eight: Localism–Centralization


    As noted with Principle Three: Reciprocity of our series on the Twelve Master Principles, many major principles are counterbalanced by an opposite principle. The intertwined examination of the equal-opposite relationship between localism and centralization is one such reality. Human relations tend towards intense, close relationships and, conversely, the constant pull of merging these relationships with…

  • Principle Seven: Jurisdictional Government

    Principle Seven: Jurisdictional Government


    The Bible has not been written as a textbook. Even though it is full of principles, truths, their numerous applications, and the history of people, cultures, and events spanning thousands of years, it is written as a story with multiple plots. Yet there is one major theme that stands out: Our Creator wants to connect…

  • Fauci, Masks, and My Brave New Plane Ride

    Fauci, Masks, and My Brave New Plane Ride


    June 2021 – Special Edition Recently, I took my first airplane trip in sixteen months. I have usually flown between 70,000 to 115,000 miles per year since 1978. Needless to say, staying home this much has been a wonderfully strange but much needed time. Of course, getting on the airplane with masked people who clearly…

  • Principle Six: The Separation of Powers

    Principle Six: The Separation of Powers


    As we addressed in our April issue of The Bottom Line and study of the Twelve Master Principles, Principle Four: Service-Based Power is the conduit through which “love makes the exercise of power safe” because empowering others becomes one’s goal. Since government is the structure through which power is primarily exercised, this principle of love…
