I am Pro-Life. I have embraced Christianity and all that Jesus taught on the subject; as a consequence I am “pro” or – in favor of – “life.” As a follower of Jesus, I find that the word “life” is the essence of His message: eternal life, abundant life, and the preservation or salvation of […]

Although Charles Spurgeon was a professed Calvinist he steadfastly rejected the use of weapons and violence, as did others like, D.L. Moody, Leonard Ravenhill, and Reinhold Neibuhr. Spurgeon plainly and forthrightly spoke to the issue, as in the following quote. “If there be anything clear in scripture, it does seem to me that it is […]

God, in all of His glory, rules supreme in every realm of existence, and is the ultimate Authority, and this fact is a truth, to which we do not sufficiently pay heed, either in our approach to issues and problems, or in our customary practice of living life.

Violence is an issue that has created quite a lot of heat, but very little light amongst Christians. There is uncertainty and uneasiness when the question is brought up, and nearly always ends in a great display of patriotic fervor, excessive loyalty to one’s own point of view, or a prideful display of arrogance on […]

Some things are worth repeating. Dave Hunt wrote a book twenty years ago called A Woman Rides the Beast that needs to be revisited.
