Christians and Violence

Having been born and raised in the inner-city of Indianapolis, weaned on violent T.V., serving in the Army with two years in Viet Nam, receiving Christ, and spending the next forty-or-so years in the flag-waving Church of Evangelicalism, it is only reasonable that violence would become acceptable to my way of thinking; but on the […]

Do You Smell Smoke?

An alarm has been sounding for some time now concerning the state of the Church but very few have paid attention. There is a small fire burning in the basement and the faint smell of smoke rises to those who are asleep. Nothing to be alarmed about! It is small and faint! Should I then […]

Getting Engaged

No! I am not looking for a wife, I am perfectly content with the one I’ve had for the last fifty years. But, what I have experienced of Christianity and the Church for the last forty-five years has not prepared me for adequately engaging the world creatively or constructively, and for this I need to […]

Am I My Brother’s Keeper?

Am I My Brother’s Keeper? Today, as never before, the whole world is preparing for war, and as never before, Christians are united behind the effort to kill their fellow man. The blood of endless wars cry out from the ground yet the only response from today’s Christians is “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Where […]

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 […]

A Well Fertilized Lie

When I speak out against the depravity of the human heart and its end result, war, my hope is not to change the minds of the corrupted world but to reach just a few. I do not have any illusions of reaching hearts that have been hardened from many generations of approval to destroy those […]

Americas Salvation Story

I just finished a great book, Christianity, War and America’s Salvation Story by Michael E. Lewis. The book can be purchased at Sermon on the Mount Publishing in print or PDF format. The greater part of Christendom lives in denial of what Jesus came to accomplish during His time here and that denial is lived […]

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 […]

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 […]
