Following the Church To the World

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Christendom's Dishonest Credentials

The Pied Piper of the 21st Century “Justification” is a word that we Christians love and rightly so, it is fundamental to our belief.

Christendom’s Dishonest Credentials

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Christendom's Dishonest Credentials

Introduction The Church, from its birth, began a noticeable downward slide of devolution and transmutation to the eventual effect that its nature was no longer unified nor spiritual. From the 3rd Century forward, it began to pass through numerous distortions in doctrine and appearance which repeatedly divided and disjointed the Body. (Bear in mind that […]

Understanding the Time

It is interesting to watch how Christians react to information inspired and animated by the world. I am not pointing a finger at anyone else because I have been caught up in the hysteria myself. But, it is still interesting to analyze and to weigh where we ourselves are positioned in this pre-tribulation test. Do […]

How the Church Justifies the World

Man is justified by grace, that we all know, and that is not the issue here. But, the issue is that there are errors in the thinking of conventional Christianity, by conventional Christianity I mean that which is recognized in the Church as the highest spiritual example, the standard for everything else. Today’s Christians, in […]

Blistering Heat and A Boiling Caldron

“He makes the depths seethe like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like blistering oil” The world is fighting evil on every front and every nation sees its neighbor as evil. Man has not fought his most difficult battle because it is the battle he must fight with himself, his own flesh. The […]

Jerusalem

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were unwilling! Look, your house is left to you desolate.” Do these words have any meaning for Christians today? Who is […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Happy Reformation Day!

Trick or Treat? Many will recognize October 31st as Reformation Day. Although very few Protestants can tell you what happened on this day in 1517, those who suffered most at the hands of the Reformers can tell you clearly. On October 31st, 1517 Martin Luther, supposedly, nailed his proposal to reform the Catholic Church, better known […]
