The Insanity of Our Sanity

“I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.” William Tecumseh Sherman War is truly hell and violence is sadistic, yet […]

In the Matrix But Not of the Matrix

Misery and woe to the peaceful and gentle religion of Jesus when the demon of war, hatred, and violence rides through the land on his inflamed stallion. It is unknown to […]

What Started as a Temptation Has Ended as a Lifestyle

It started with Jesus. The Devil offered Jesus power and authority, splendor and glory, fame and prestige, and gaudy costumes, and special collars, gold rings, and recognition with people bowing, and acknowledgement in public places, and names with initials, and he said, “It has been given to me, and I can give it to whomever […]

The Lesson of the Lamb

Christ’s example to us is richly illustrated, demonstrated, and exemplified by way of His many teachings and in His genius and spirit. He could have easily commanded armies and defeated every corrupt ruler and coercive power on earth, if it pleased Him. But He did not avail himself of such power. Christ yielded Himself, as […]

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.

Violence and the Christian Heart

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 […]

Another Look at the Catholic Church
