My name is Kevin Craig and I am the author of the "LibertyUnderGod.com" and The Christmas Conspiracy! websites.
Before I graduated from USC I was contributing to The Chalcedon Report and became a Chalcedon Scholar. My first article is here. While writing for Chalcedon I shared the pulpit at Reformation Bible Church in Anaheim, California, with David Chilton, and occasionally substituted for R.J. Rushdoony at his Sunday services in Westwood, Calif.
During this time I formed Vine & Fig Tree, a non-profit tax-exempt publishing corporation.
I then began studying law (along with a handful of other students) under John Warwick Montgomery (and a handful of other attorneys) in the Sunday School rooms of Trinity Lutheran Church in Anaheim, CA. This soon became known as the Simon Greenleaf School of Law, named after the Harvard Law School Professor of Evidence whose treatise on the Law of Evidence was the greatest work on the subject in the 19th century, and who wrote a book showing that if the Gospels were examined in a court of law under the rules of evidence, the resurrection of Christ must be regarded as a credible fact. I passed the California Bar Exam, and was completely qualified for admission to the Bar, but the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals concluded that I should not be given a license to practice law because I believe America should be a nation "under God." Full story here.
While a member of an Orthodox Presbyterian Church pastored by Greg L. Bahnsen, I was excommunicated.
I spent the next decade at "Isaiah House" in Santa Ana, Calif., part of the Catholic Worker movement. I lived in this turn-of-the-century 12-room house with 3 or 4 other "extremists" like me, and over the years we invited thousands of people to lunch in our dining room and hundreds of people for shelter of at least one night. I was attracted to this lifestyle by the model of Francis and Edith Schaeffer. The work at Isaiah House inspired the creation of Colette's Children's Home, and I continue to serve on its Board of Directors.
I am now (September, 2003) relocating to the Branson, Missouri area, where I hope to convert Vine & Fig Tree webpages into a number of books.
