Christianity On Your Terms

At first glance you may think I mean that Christ needs to accept our way of worshiping Him; not at all! What I do mean is that our presentation of the Gospel to the world at large needs to be on our terms, the terms of Truth, and not the world’s terms. But, the world […]

The Instrument of Our Own Undoing

We have all heard preachers talk about the Cross? What did you think of that? How was it delivered and how was it received? What is a “daily Cross”? Looking from the inside of the Protestant Church, and I would dare say all of today’s Churches, of which I was a part of for more […]

Will You Be Seed or Will You Be Safe?

Most people who call themselves “Christian” are Christians by default and not by decision; they are Christians by birth or they have caught their belief the same way a person might catch a cold, by contact. Muslims are Muslims the same way, because they were born into a Muslim family or nation, and very few […]

Christians and Independence Day?

Does it even matter to the majority of “Christians” that they thumb their noses at the words of God that declare that we “can not serve two masters” or that we should “not swear at all” or that “our citizenship is in heaven”? It does not bother me in the least that Americans celebrate the […]

And The World Turns

As we watch the world tumble and turn, and the organized church slips into apostasy, words start taking on new value, meaning, and understanding, both for the worldly Christian and for those enlightened souls who recognize the fulfillment of end-time prophecy. We have witnessed, in our generation, the grand sermons of talented preachers, with their […]

Did Jesus Die So That You Could Remain Blind?

In 1967 I was seventeen years old and the Viet Nam war was hot. Radio, newspapers, and television were filled with real, live, action and everyone knew or had heard of someone who was wounded or killed in the fighting. The country was divided then between those who were patriots and would die for their […]

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. The justification, as historically validated by Christ and preached by the Apostles, is not the Justification at issue in this article. The issue here is a fault that has been weaved […]

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 […]

Beware of Snake-Oil Salesmen

A relatively new kid has come to town and is turning out to be a bully, but a bully of a different sort, who uses the power of the printed word. You have probably seen the type, they come in with their new flashy toys and win a following through intimidation, class status, and salesmanship. […]

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 […]
