The Truth of the Flower

The Truth of the Flower Is science the truth of the flower? No, the truth of the flower is the image in the brain of the image-maker. Science? It is only a thing of ways and means–pixels on a sensor–binary code in a computer–in relation to the art in the heart of the creator. Mere […]

Words.!?#

Words.!?# I could write a hundred books and still be misunderstood. Even a poet only scratches the surface of full disclosure. Empires have crumbled because their words were taken the wrong way. Yet, God has chosen words, His words, to be recorded for all posterity and His own Son bore the title of Logos, the […]

A List of False Teachings in the Roman Catholic Church

  With the Catholic Church’s new Jesuit Pope pressing his agenda to engulf, not only all of Christendom, but all religion, it is necessary that concerned Christians repel this attack with the application of truth. In that regard I am presenting this list of false teachings by the Catholic Church. This is not a critique […]

The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War: Part 5

This entry is part 5 of 8 in the series The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War

As we have seen in the last article, the Book of Hebrews starts out with a definitive statement of the relationship and authority of Jesus regarding everything that was written, or said, before His arrival. But, the words from the author of Hebrews are only an intensification of the words spoken by Jesus Himself in […]

The Christianization of War and Violence Pt. 5 A Response to a Question

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Christianization of war and violence

Because of the articles I wrote about the “Christianization of War and Violence” I now find it necessary to go just a little further. The number one response to this controversial topic is the question of defending others from an evil person set on doing harm to a friend or family member. We can easily […]

The Christianization of War and Violence Pt. 3

This entry is part 3 of 5 in the series Christianization of war and violence

The Christians’ Justification for War and Violence As I stated in the first article, it is virtually impossible to find any support for Christians taking up arms against their enemy or for self-defense during the first 300 years of Church history. Today Christians proudly justify patriotism, involvement in politics, personal defense, capital punishment, and “just […]

The Christianization of War and Violence, Pt 2

This entry is part 2 of 5 in the series Christianization of war and violence

Part Two For 1700 years Christians have justified war and self-defense, but where did this notion come from, the Bible? There is a general rejection of the Kingdom teachings of Jesus, which are encapsulated in His Sermon on the Mount. Christ’s teachings on wealth, oaths, and divorce are offensive to most Christians and they spend […]

Religion: Satan’s Greatest Deception (A Repost)

Religion is a curious and fascinating thing. I haven't done a study on the number of religions that exist in the world: main line religions, their various branches, sects, cults, and spin offs, but the vastness has to be mind boggling, all claiming to be the truth, lead to the truth, or be a variant […]

An Urgent Inquiry into the Nature of the Church

  I have written in the past how I came to understand that most of what we see exhibited as the “Church” in the world is not the Church the Holy Spirit has revealed through the pages of the New Testament. Any honest perusal of those pages will show plainly that there is no similarity between […]
