Psychology’s Fight Against the Word of God

In the Evangelical Protestant Church of the world a “Creeping mold” has presented itself and barely an eyebrow is lifted or anyone taken noticed. This creeping mold is humanistic Christian Psychology. In less than a century it has taken over the Christian counseling ministry of the Church. For two-thousand years the Church didn’t need it, […]

A Timely Message About Peace

Peace, who has even heard of such a thing in our times, is it something new? The Catholics and Evangelicals know nothing of peace, confusing it with a militaristic state of control; and the Anabaptists confuse it with a physiological state of rest. Then, what is Peace? The earliest prophets anticipated peace as one of […]

A Look at Modern Anabaptism by a Resent Disciple to Its Older Ideals of Non-Resistance.

The traditional importance of non-resistance has shaped a distinctive Anabaptist personality. Early Anabaptists spoke of Gelassenheit, a yieldingness and surrender to God’s will in the face of persecution and martyrdom. Over an extended period of time, however, the Anabaptist’s radical appeal and challenge to the existing Christian society became transformed into a message which cultivated […]

A Thanksgiving Something

I recently shared an image on Facebook that pictures a man holding five umbrellas over his head with a poor person walking by getting wet and below the image is the caption that reads simply “Capitalism.” I have been an avid lover of photographer for very many years and I understand how taking a picture […]

Some Roads are More Lonely than Others

The road beneath is dark and dead, Visions and memories invade our sick heads. Where hope once lived and flowers grew; Where butterflies flittered and birds flew. Now, little other care have we; Now, the road and blackness are all we see. Away, to nowhere, a place to hide, No color, no feeling, just yellow […]

Where We Are At Today

In the national life of our country, the prevailing Christian thought is that of Protestantism while the Anabaptist have sought out safety, security, and isolation from persecution. Consequently, since the 1920’s general societal shift to liberalism, we are today left with the collapses of Christianity. What we now see is an image of a building […]

Who is My Neighbor? Who is My Enemy?

Matthew 5:43-48 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain […]

The End and the Means

“Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” Lk. 18:8 As we see the storm clouds approaching and time drawing to an end, verses like the one above should get our undivided attention.

Tension!!

After being associated with the Anabaptist for a little while now the question for me arises: What is the most apparent difference between my experience with the Protestant Church and the Anabaptist Church? Both the Protestants and Anabaptist claim to preach the Gospel of Jesus, but the effect that that message has had in the […]

The Garden of Eden and the Garden of Evil

Man has been separated from God for well nigh seven thousand years and today little thought is given to the idea that maybe what we witness with our eyes and in our thoughts is not normal. Most men and even Christian men will indulge their propensity toward evil. They will watch the theatrics of evil […]
