1. Who Are We?
Hello, my name is Kevin Craig. I'm the Founder of Vine & Fig Tree, a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt educational organization, sponsor of The Anarchist Bible Bet Online Home Bible Study Program.
When today's Americans hear the word "salvation," they usually think about going to heaven when they die. When the writers of the Bible used the word "salvation," they wanted you to be thinking about dwelling safely under your own Vine & Fig Tree during this life -- much more often than they wanted you to be thinking about what you'll be doing in the afterlife.
Sometimes people say we're "un-American" because we're anarchists. We reply by saying our organization is dedicated to promoting the original "American Dream." According to the Library of Congress Website, George Washington was motivated by the Vine & Fig Tree vision revealed in the Bible:
2. Why You Are Going To Lose This Bet.
There are two reasons why you're going to lose this wager.
First, Every single person who signed the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution would say this about you:
You are a victim of Educational Malpractice.
The men who who signed the Declaration of Independence and risked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to make America the most prosperous and most admired nation in history would say:
We will change that for you. By transforming you into a Bible-believing Christian anarchist, America's Founders would agree you have become
Even though this is a "wager," what we really want is for you to experience the most profound, massive personal transformation of your entire life. We're really on your side.
We are here to transform you.
We're going to make sure you read the Bible, understand the Bible, and become a Bible-believing Christian anarchist.
Colonial American One-Room Schoolhouse 2.0
We're selling the education that government required in public schools 400 years ago.
I probably would have been put to death 400 years ago because I'm an anarchist. My brand of non-coercion and proposed abolition of the machinery of compulsion ("the State") would have been anathema in centuries past. It is still controversial enough to bar me from any government job, including public school teacher. (If you checked out my rιsumι below, you read how I was denied a license to practice law in California because my allegiance to God is greater than my allegiance to the government.) Today I would not be allowed to become a Naturalized American Citizen had I been born in a foreign country.
Plus, America's Founding Fathers were under the mistaken impression that the Bible requires human beings to form governments.
But there is a core similarity between my program and the one compelled by every government in North America 400 years ago.
My education program is based on the Bible.
The entire concept of "public schools" was created by Bible-believing Christians following the Protestant Reformation in order to make sure every citizen could read the Bible. [If you already know this, skip the evidence that follows.]
One of the first public school laws in America is known today as "The Old Deluder Satan Act" because it began with these words:
The 1636 rules of Harvard declared:
That's our Program. Read the Bible twice a day. Get a Harvard education like Samuel Adams.
The 1690 Connecticut law declared:
This [legislature] observing that... there are many persons unable to read the English tongue and thereby incapable to read the holy Word of God or the good laws of this colony... it is ordered that all parents and masters shall cause their respective children and servants, as they are capable, to be taught to read distinctly the English tongue.
You were denied this kind of Bible-centered Education. In the early 1960's, the U.S. Supreme Court banned the Bible* from public schools, along with voluntary prayer. One of the Justices who concurred in this secularization was honest enough to admit that removing religion from public schools was directly contrary to the intentions of America's Founders:
Many territories, when they applied for admission to the union. repeated those words verbatim in their state constitutions. Nebraska in 1875 was the last state to copy these words into their constitution.
The Government today prevents students from being taught the Bible, "religion, morality, and knowledge." Every single person who signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution would say that secular schools are a threat to "good government and the happiness of mankind," and a government that imposes secularism on the people should be "abolished," just as they abolished the British government over the colonies for offenses far less serious.
Samuel Adams, the "Anti-Federalist," did not always agree with his cousin John Adams, the "Federalist." Sam wrote:
This is exactly what The Anarchist Bible Bet will do for you. You can compensate for what the federal government denied you as a little boy or girl by enrolling in our year-long online Home-Study program.
If America's Founding Fathers could travel through time, what would they say is America's Most Pressing Problem?
I think they would say it is the fact that America is no longer a nation "Under God," but is an atheistic nation ("secular" sounds so much nicer than "atheistic"). The nation that once sent missionaries and Bibles around the world is now the world's greatest exporter of weapons and pornography.
And the root of this problem is a national system of compulsory atheistic education for all children 5-17 years of age. America's Founders would be horrified, outraged, apoplectic. Princeton professor Archibald Hodge saw the trend back in 1887, and sounded this alarm:
He was right. If our Godly and virtuous ancestors could see schools and culture today, they would be screaming: "What are you doing about this!?!?"
What are you doing about this? Of course, you are paying for this propagation of atheism and immorality. Are you doing as much to stop it or counter it as the danger warrants?
Then you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
Have you taken your own kids out of public schools? Terrific. But you yourself are still a victim of educational malpractice.
Because of their Biblical education, America's Founding Fathers realized that "the Divine Right of Kings" was not a Biblical doctrine. You have been denied this education by an imperialist regime that can only be described as "the enemy of mankind." You don't see half of what America's Founders saw. If they were here today, they would see not only that the "divine right of kings" is an unChristian concept, but the entire concept of "the nation-state" is a complete failure, having been invented by rebels and nowhere commanded or endorsed in the Bible.
By skipping "the 3 R's," twelve years of colonial American worldview education, covering "religion, morality, and knowledge" can be covered in just 12 months by reading through the entire Bible and four other works which are among the most important works in the history of western civilization, listening to audio lessons on the commute to work and back home in the evening, 20 minutes each way. Then each week attend a live Q&A webinar for laser coaching and clarification.
That's our Program. If you complete our assignments, you will be a Bible-believing Christian Anarchist, or we'll pay you $1,000.00.
YOU HAVE A PROBLEM
Imagine having a conversation with one of those who risked "our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor" against a limited, Christian government like Great Britain in 1776. They travel through time and discover a New United States, which can only be described as "the enemy of mankind."
What would they say about you? What would they say about the risks you take against this atheistic tyranny?
They would say you are:
You are one of the wealthiest human beings in the history of the human race, richer than billions of human beings both now and in centuries past.
But you are self-indulgent and ungrateful.
America's Founders would say you are not "the salt of the earth," and a "light to the world." You are not a "City upon a Hill." This is because you haven't connected the dots and become a Bible-believing Christian Anarchist.
If you're like most Americans, you believe the Old Testament is filled with violence and slavery, and cannot be a model for any civilized society today.
The Second Reason You're Going to Lose this Bet.
You are shocked and offended at "anarchism" - the idea of abolishing "the government." Many great minds were shocked and offended by men like Thomas Jefferson, who repudiated the widely-held doctrine of "the Divine Right of Kings."
How could a nation survive without a king? Who would lead the nation? It would be like a headless horseman!
Even some of America's Founding Fathers were scandalized by the idea of a government with no king. Benjamin Rush, who signed the Declaration of Independence, spoke of his own "Copernican revolution":
But in 200 years, no more progress has been made. In fact, no serious student of Christianity and American history can deny that we have regressed. We have suffered a significant loss in liberty and virtue. America's Founders would be shocked. Horrified.
It's time for another copernican revolution.
Not only can we have a virtuous, orderly, peaceful, and prosperous society without a king, we can have one without "the State" in any form.
You're shocked at that suggestion, because you have fallen hook, line and sinker for The Biggest Government Lie in the history of the human race. The Big Lie is this:
"Anarchists" are the bad guys.
Logically (or etymologically), those who oppose an-archists are "archists."
You've never heard the word "archist" before.
Put on your thinking cap.
What is an "archist?"
It's a simple concept. But revolutionary.
We want to convince you that "archists" are the bad guys, and "anarchists" are the good guys, .
This may be an insurmountable hurdle, because you've been brainwashed by compulsory "archist" mis-education.
Like all Americans, you have been trained in government-approved schools to believe that an "anarchist" is a bad person:
We are 100% opposed to such things. We hope you are too. The man above believes in using force to impose his will on others.
We believe this is the definition of an archist, not an anarchist.
You might be saying,
Answer: From the Bible.
I try to get everything from the Bible.
In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 10, Jesus discovers His disciples arguing about who is going to be the "greatest" in the Kingdom of God.
They didn't understand that Jesus' Kingdom was quite unlike the kingdoms of the world.
The word translated "rulers" comes from the Greek word from which we derive our English word "anarchist."
"Lords," "rulers" and "great ones" are "archists."
Jesus clearly says His followers are not to be "archists." They are to be "servants."
Jesus did not tell His disciples to impose Christianity on the world by force.
Jesus says "archists" are not to be looked up to. We are to be "servants." We are to be pacifists. We are to be non-archists. If you go "back to school" with us for one year, you'll agree, or we'll pay you $1,000.00
3. Why You Will Fall All Over Yourself to Pay us $1,000.00 -- or more! -- to transform you into a Bible-Believing Christian Anarchist
Once you realize that Jesus prohibits Christians from being "archists," your whole world changes.
What are the benefits to you of becoming a Christian Anarchist?
The Marketing Department has told me to
I told The Marketing Dept. that nobody who has read this far would fall for any of that.
Quite the contrary, by becoming a follower of Christ the executed anarchist, you may lose everything. In our day the "Bill of Rights" means nothing. You may become the object of government surveillance. The FBI or other government intelligence agencies may open a dossier on you and members of your family. Your participation and public affiliation with an "anarchist" website may lead to IRS harassment in the form of an audit or other legal inconveniences. You may be deemed an "enemy combatant." If your job required you to take an oath or sign a statement indicating your support of the U.S. Constitution, you may lose your job because you visit "anarchist" websites. I lost my chance to be an attorney. Your house or place of business may be searched and your assets "forfeited." You may become targeted for assassination by one of 30,000 drones over U.S. skies. We cannot be responsible for these eventualities. You have to make the decision: will you be approved by the government, or will you be approved by God?
The Bible promises that if you meditate on God's Commandments (the basis for the anarchist character traits you will be gaining in our program) you will prosper:
Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This book of the Law shall not depart out of thy mouth: but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

America is a unique "laboratory experiment" that proves the benefits of our program of Christian Anarchism. Imagine a political spectrum with "Christian Anarchism" on one side and "archism" on the other:
Just like America, you may become prosperous and admired as employers, clients, or others see your non-archist character. Conversely, just like America, a person could become bankrupt and despised as one becomes less anarchist and more archist.

|Theocracy: "Liberty Under God"||Lukewarm||Atheism|
The Bible promises benefits for those who engage in this kind of "iron-sharpening":
Just as iron sharpens iron, friends sharpen the minds of each other.
Even if you don't become a Christian Anarchist, going through our program will be a mind-expanding discipline. Even if you don't want to wear our official "I Lost the Anarchist Bible Bet" T-Shirt, you'll still be grateful that you completed our daily assignments.
There is further benefit in the daily study of the Bible.
Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica,
George Washington, who struggled with archism, yearned for the Vine & Fig Tree society and studied the Bible an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening. Your whole life will be transformed by committing to a daily program to read the Bible as an "anarchist manifesto" in preparation for global change -- not just a "daily devotional" where you flip open the Bible to a page at random to get "inspiration" like a Hallmark Card. We're talking about a systematic putting-on of the Armor of God to do battle with the forces of totalitarian darkness.
A final benefit: Jesus will not vomit you out of His mouth if you become an anarchist and repudiate the imposing of your will on others by force. Jesus said we must be "extremists." There is no "moderate" or "neutrality" on this issue.
Total opposition to "the State" is the fruit of total commitment to God.
|The idea that "anarchists" are the bad guys and those who oppose anarchists (logically, "archists") are the good guys is
not want to be an archist, then you want to be an "an-archist," that is, "not an archist."
You may have heard the saying, "Power corrupts." The man who wrote this, Lord Acton, was a Christian anarchist. (Or pretty close.)(We think he would be if he were here today.) Most people who have heard that "power corrupts" have not heard the rest of the paragraph. Compare what Lord Acton said with what Jesus said:
Why does power corrupt? Because "power" -- being a legal "archist" -- is a license to do harm to others without doing any time. With no consequences, there is no reason not to be an archist. From being an archist over one's neighbor, it becomes easier to become an archist over millions.
"Great" men want this power.
The Biggest Government Lie of All Time is that "anarchists" are bad, while those who oppose "anarchists" are good.
Are you an Archist?
You are an "archist" if
You are also an "archist" if you "vote" for "The Candidate"
The initiation of "force" includes:
The myth that archists are the good guys pervades every area of our lives.
And most of us end up thinking, "If 'they' can use force to accomplish their 'public' goals, why can't I use force to accomplish my private goals?"
It isn't just "criminals" who think that way. "White-collar" criminals think the same way. Voters think the same way. Breaking that myth ("anarchists = bad; archists = good") will transform you, no matter who you are, or what you do in life:
We have all been infected -- to one degree or another -- by the idea that it's OK to impose our will on others by force.
For Candidates and Politicians, Bureaucrats and Tyrants, the "initiation of force" usually takes the form of
This is what "archists" do.
An "archist" is someone who believes he has a right to
Seeing through the anti-anarchist propaganda of the government-controlled media will transform every area of your life. You will be amazed.
This website doesn't exist to pass out thousand-dollar bills to every Tom, Dick, and Harriet that comes along saying, "Yeah, I read the Bible, but I didn't become an anarchist, and I want my thousand bucks." You will have to go through hoops to get there, and we're betting that our hoops will persuade you to pay us to join our cause.
At the very least, our hoops will transform you to some degree, and that's what our donors want.
We offer a one-year "Life Coaching" Program. We want to sell you on that program. This "Bible Bet" is a marketing gimmick. In effect, we're offering a double-your-money-back guarantee on the program.
This Program Solves the Most Pressing Problem in Your Life.
In order to get started, we want to screen out trouble-makers and riff-raff, so there's a lengthy application process. The application process is free. No obligation.
About Kevin Craig - Personal History

* Did the Supreme Court really "ban the Bible" from public schools?
Public school students can certainly be taught that the Bible exists. But they cannot be taught that it is true, and that it is a "sacred" book because it is the Word of God. In other words, the Court banned the teaching of the Bible as the Bible would be taught by those who wrote it. The Court also banned the Bible as the Supreme Court ruled 150 years earlier it "must" be taught.
An 1844 U.S. Supreme Court case involved a wealthy Frenchman who left a large sum of money in his will to the City of Philadelphia to build a school in which no clergy would teach. (Virtually all schools back then were run by churches or Christian organizations and clergy often taught the classes Mon-Fri.) There was a great controversy over whether the will of this obviously deistic Frenchman should be enforced. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that just because clergy couldn't teach, didn't mean that lay teachers could not continue to teach the Bible as the Word of God in a school administered by the city government. In fact, the Court said -- and the City of Philadelphia enthusiastically agreed -- that teachers "must" teach Christianity and the Bible as a "divine revelation" and a "sacred volume." Here are the words of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1844:
There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution which forced the Supreme Court in the early 1960's to repudiate Christianity and remove the Bible "as a divine revelation" from public schools.
