In early June 2021, Victor Porlier went to be with the Lord as a result of a house explosion that took his life and that of his wife, Lois. Many are not familiar with him, but in the 1980s he participated in a series of videos with R.J. Rushdoony and a number of Christian scholars and people of influence. The following short audio excerpt is Victor introducing Dr. Rushdoony at a conference in Seattle, Washington. As he recounts how he first learned of Rush and Chalcedon, and the profound influence it had on his life, you will hear a man who was energized by a Biblical vision of victory and went on to share it with others for decades thereafter.
