Early Christians were called "heretics" and "atheists" when they denied the gods of Rome, in particular the divinity of the emperor and the statism he embodied in his personality cult. These Christians knew that Jesus Christ, not the state, was their Lord and that this faith required a different kind of relationship to the state than the state demanded. Because Jesus Christ was their acknowledged Sovereign, they consciously denied such esteem to all other claimants. Today the church must take a similar stand before the modern state.

Chalcedon operates on a modest budget made possible when our supporters make online donations or use the return envelope we enclose in each publication. As donations may fluctuate widely from month to month, long-term planning can be a challenge. That's where our Underwriters come in. With their monthly pledges, this "Gideon's Band of 300" underwrites our operating expenses, allowing us to plan future ministerial efforts responsibly.
