The Insanity of Our Sanity

“I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.” William Tecumseh Sherman War is truly hell and violence is sadistic, yet […]

The Devil Adores the Christian Soldier

There are no Christian Patriots, a lie that’s everywhere believed, And as far as enduring suffering, God has closed His ears to thee. Your faith and life are based upon, a flag and sophistry, That you display with foolish pride, and think it sets you free. You have walked into harm’s way, and accepted the […]

License to Kill

The great foundation stone, universally used, by the Protestant and Catholic Church to justify the killing of their enemies, in concert with the state, is Romans 13. I have heard this chorus sung so often from the pulpit that there is virtually no Christian who can read this passage without filtering it through their favorite […]

The State of Professional Preachers

My experience in the commercial Church with the commercial pastor is that for him individuals are merely for his own self-stimulation; he discards them as a tree shakes off and forgets its leaves and then is rejuvenated by a new Spring collection, leaving the old foliage withered and forgotten. He comes from the unknown and […]

The Unprofitable Servant

So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. Luke 17:10 We have all probably read these words and may have acknowledged that Solomon was right when he said, “Vanity of vanity all is […]

DRESS REHEARSAL FOR A FALSE REVIVAL?

It never ceases to amaze me how supposedly intelligent Christians can so miss understanding Biblical prophecy; they have either missed it, they don’t care, or they are afraid. While Biblical end-times prophecy is unfolding like yesterday’s newspaper and foretells the very thing they are producing, they practice their religious hobbycraft in a cloud of delusion. […]

The Fourth of July, a Christian Holiday?

Tonight as I lay in my bed I am reminded of sounds I experienced 47 years ago, only then they were the sounds of death, pain, and suffering. Tonight while Christians across this land, those who say they celebrate life, celebrate death. Solomon once said, speaking of Wisdom, Whoever fails to find Me harms himself; […]

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 […]

Touch Not the Unclean Thing (a re-post)

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of […]

The Church: What it Is and What it Ain’t, Part 3

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series The Church: What it Is, and What it Ain't

“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 […]
