Paul Axton Preaches - The God of the philosophers, the God of the law, the God of Christendom, and scientism is dead and to desire to return through fascism, right-wing fundamentalism, or nationalism is on the order of Israel desiring to return to Egypt, or a fall back into idolatry and law. In Christ we can face the desert of a world of lost meaning.

Paul Axton Preaches - The parameters of philosophy can be laid out along the lines of Paul's depiction of the subject. In the subject focused on the "law of the mind," the legal, philosophical order holds out life. With the focus on the ego there is a questioning of philosophy and law and the pointer to fullness in Christ alone.

In this lecture on Romans 12-13 Paul Axton sets chapter 13's picture of being subordinate to the government in the context of chapter 12, of not being conformed to the world but being transformed. Subordinance is not compliance or conformity but a means of disempowering the weapon of death deployed by the state.

Paul Axton Preaches - Friedrich Nietzsche misreads Paul in the standard Lutheran contractual theological manner as suffering from guilt and resentment against God and the law. His pronouncement of the death of God is a prophetic pointer to the demise of western philosophical foundations which a correct, apocalyptic, reading of Paul and Christianity already address.

Paul Axton Preaches - Hebrews is a case in point of how a figurative reading of Scripture and history is existentially now and not yet. It is not Nietzsche's Platonic - not yet Christianity nor is it Hegel's immanent - now Christianity, thus it counters both fascism and Marxism.
