How Does the Cross Offend?

For the better part of my thirty plus years of calling myself a Christian I never comprehended or understood what was meant by the “offence of the Cross.” it seemed to me that this “offence” was an overstatement.

Well, the conference is over now and the Reverend Rick, true to form, presented a man-centred pelagian message of Catholic lite heresy. Some have done a good […]

Redefining the Redefined Church

To redefine something we must first know the correct definition. That would be a reasonable assumption, wouldn’t you think? Yet, the organized church, which has been redefined many, many, times, and has given birth to many more sects, of which have, likewise, been redefined, is in a death struggle to maintain its present definition as […]
