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 […]

The Social Club and Society

The social club that many people belong to, known as the “Church,” has a few unwritten rules. The top rule and most important to remember, if you want to keep your membership active, is to never touch on the sins of other members, even incidentally. It is quite okay to enumerate the sins of those […]

Christians Voting???

For me, leaving the political arena, many years ago, was a hard won battle. I just felt sure that I needed to cast my vote to hold back the veil of darkness and to be a legitimate Christian, along with persuading many others to vote my way. What I discovered was that the veil of […]

The Great American Myth: American History, Part 2

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series The Great American Myth: American History

Are people who talk and write about history necessarily history scholars? No! Just because a person is new to the investigation of American history doesn’t mean that they cannot share what they have discovered. What they don’t know about American history does not negate or discredit what they do know. If I discover a buried […]

Military Courts and Bible Verses

I have written extensively concerning Christian involvement in politics, at any level, and that the involvement in this process is forbidden to Christians. I find it very easy, personally, to understand the New Testament’s teaching in this regard, but for most Christians this understanding is not so apparent. Patriotism and its associated emotions run very […]

Christians Who Lean on the Arm of Flesh

It will always be necessary in this life to plead with the hearts and minds of men, even Christian men, to understand the message of the Gospel. Men need to be convinced. It is not enough that something be said only once; the truth needs to be repeated over and over again. When dealing with […]

A Critique of Some of the False Teachings of the Catholic Church: Introduction

This entry is part 1 of 7 in the series Some of the False Teachings of the Catholic Church

Introduction Some Background Before getting into the actual critique it is necessary that I make a statement about my position in this argument.

But This is Your Hour–When Darkness Reigns

Luke 22:53b When I completed the last articles I considered being finished with the idea of non-resistance as prescribed by Jesus. I left writing on the subject and thought I would pursue some new avenue thinking that I had exhausted the subject and that no one really wanted to hear any more on the matter, […]

The Church: What it Is and What it Ain’t, Part 4

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series The Church: What it Is, and What it Ain't

The thief on the cross believed Jesus and was saved. Having been released from all that bound him to his former life he was ready to believe with all his heart and strength the simple truth of what he was now confronted. But, what was it that he believed? Was it dogma, homiletics, patristics, liturgies, […]

The Church: What it Is, and What it Ain’t, Part 1

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series The Church: What it Is, and What it Ain't

Looking for the real Church may not be as easy as it sounds. It may be more akin to looking for buried treasure, or at least the finding of it would be. Some have found it when they weren’t even looking for it; others have tripped over it and never appreciated its true value, kicking […]
