Blowin’ In The Wind

Bob Dylan asks a simple question in his song Blowin’ in the Wind, and it is this, “How many times must a man look up before he sees the sky.” Now Bob Dylan may not be a Christian, but maybe he is, I don’t know; but I do know he asks a lot of the […]

Do Christians Really Obey Christ’s Commands?

The Western World’s constitutions have equally drawn their inspiration from this set of Christ’s teachings, which we will correctly refer to as the commands of Christ. These commands have become so embedded in our society that they are now mere metaphors for “doing your best”: Do unto others…Turn the other cheek…Go the extra mile…are all […]

The Struggle between Darkness and Light

Where are we to look for truth, in a smoking mountain, an earthquake, a hurricane, the explosive force of a blazing fire or the rising tide of a grand tsunami, a swarm of locust or a plague of disease, or the suffocating death of the Mosaic Law? Many of us have been lead to truth […]

“And the disciples came and said to Him, ‘Why do You speak to them in parables?’ Jesus answered them, ‘To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted. ‘For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he will have […]

The War Prayer

by Mark Twain It was a time of great and exalting excitement.  The country was up in arms, the war was on, in every breast burned the holy fire of patriotism; the drums were beating, the bands playing, the toy pistols popping, the bunched firecrackers hissing and spluttering; on every hand and far down the […]

In my refutation of Dr. Robert L. Moyer’s pamphlet, “The Christian and War” we have finally come to his objective of answering these two questions: 1. Can a Man Scripturally Be a Conscientious Objector? and 2. Shall a Christian Go to War? Can a Man Scripturally Be a Conscientious Objector? To the first  ques tion […]

It is a strange phenomenon how, over a period of time, things can become flip-flopped, and how once the flip occurs it takes on the appearance that it has always been that way.

A Conspiracy of Silence

The 60’s era was a time when war and violence became personal. The images streaming in via television and magazine of cargo planes filled with body bags, F4 Phantom jets delivering payloads of napalm incinerating jungle and humans, B52 bombers converting landscape into moonscape, Cobra gunships pouring out lead like neon pencils delivering letters of […]
