The following are links to other Internet sites that you might find interesting . . .
Please note: While we list links to organizations that we believe share at least some of the goals of The American Night Watch, the listing of a link on this page does not mean blanket approval of the views of an organization or the information found at their web site. In other words, the views expressed by the organizations represented by the links below are not necessarily the views of The American Night Watch.
Also, there are many fine Christian organizations on the Internet that are not listed here. The absence of a listing is not meant to imply anything negative about those organizations.
Finally, sites coming and going and sites changing address (URL) seems to be a fact of life on the world wide web. We try to keep our links up to date, but sometimes things change without our knowledge. If you find a link that doesn't work we'd appreciate knowing about it for the sake of others trying to "surf" from this page (you may e-mail: email@example.com). Thanks and God bless!

Woodson, Sr.'s 1776 Unites Project is "an assembly of independent voices who uphold our country’s authentic founding virtues and values and challenge those who assert America is forever defined by its past failures, such as slavery. We seek to offer alternative perspectives that celebrate the progress America has made on delivering its promise of equality and opportunity and highlight the resilience of its people. Our focus is on solving problems. We do this in the spirit of 1776, the date of America’s true founding."
- Horace Cooper's Project 21 "is an initiative of The National Center for Public Policy Research to promote the views of African-Americans whose entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to family and commitment to individual responsibility have not traditionally been echoed by the nation’s civil rights establishment."
- Larry Elder's Uncle Tom” movie is an "eye-opening film from Director Justin Malone and Executive Producer Larry Elder, Uncle Tom examines self-empowerment, individualism and rejecting the victim narrative.

Sites that Explore the Relationship Between Scripture and Science:
- Resources that present an argument for Intelligent Design may be found at the Center for Science and Culture and Access Research Network.
- Findings of science that support the Christian world view may be explored at Reasons to Believe. Hugh Ross has valuable insights to share in the relationship between science, Scripture, and origins from and "old-earth" point of view. However, readers should know that his theology, especially regarding the multi-dimensionality of God, is not fully orthodox; and Dr. Ross has, to date, resisted attempts to bring these beliefs in line with a more traditional interpretation of Scripture. At times, Dr. Ross seems to think that doctrines such as the Trinity have no validity unless a scientific explanation is provided for them. See the article by William Lane Craig, "Hugh Ross's Extra-Dimensional Deity: A Review Article," Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, vol. 42, no. 2 (June 1999), 293-304 (see link to ETS on this page). Even with this caveat, however, Dr. Ross is a committed Christian who has significant insights to share.
- The best ministry that supports a literal, seven-day interpretation of Genesis is Ken Ham's Answers from Genesis ministry. Even those who do not believe in a young-earth will profit from many of the resources this ministry provides.
More Serious Reading for Today's Christians:
- Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Ph.D. is the president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He regularly provides some of the most insightful and challenging writing on contemporary issues from the standpoint of orthodox, traditional Christianity. You can find his writings at his web site: https://www.albertmohler.com/.
- The "Cambridge Confession," located at the web site of The Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, is a statement by those in the Calvinistic, Reformed tradition calling for a reformation in American evangelicalism. One of the signers is David F. Wells, professor of systematic and historic theology at Gordon-Conwell theological seminary. Dr. Wells is the author of No Place for Truth: Or Whatever Happened to Evangelical Theology? (Grand Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1993), which is one of the best studies of evangelicalism in contemporary society. We highly recommend this book to those seeking to understand the forces at play in contemporary society to which the church is not immune.
- For a helpful outline of how postmodernism affects Christianity and our culture, read "Deconstructionism: The Postmodern Cult of Hermes" at the Christian Information Ministries site, which is part of The Family Network.
The following organizations are worthy of your support:
