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 […]

The Prosaic Character of Stupor

Very many Christians who live in America lack inspiration, they live in the world of the mundane and common. They are earthbound and unimaginative and only see in black-and-white and life as a matter-of-fact. Comfort and mediocrity grip the existence of those whose lives have been reduced to a generality and a purposeless conclusion. They […]

A Biblical View Of Political Involvement

This is a re-post of an article I wrote before the election in 2016. I get a lot of feedback on not voting and non-participation in government, and I love it; I love it because someone may be enlightened. Probably the most common question I get is, “If we as a nation did not have […]

Christianity On Your Terms

At first glance you may think I mean that Christ needs to accept our way of worshiping Him; not at all! What I do mean is that our presentation of the Gospel to the world at large needs to be on our terms, the terms of Truth, and not the world’s terms. But, the world […]

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 […]

Did Jesus Die So That You Could Remain Blind?

In 1967 I was seventeen years old and the Viet Nam war was hot. Radio, newspapers, and television were filled with real, live, action and everyone knew or had heard of someone who was wounded or killed in the fighting.

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 […]

Beware of Snake-Oil Salesmen

A relatively new kid has come to town and is turning out to be a bully, but a bully of a different sort, who uses the power of the printed word. You have probably seen the type, they come in with their new flashy toys and win a following through intimidation, class status, and salesmanship. […]

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 […]

How the Church Justifies the World

Man is justified by grace, that we all know, and that is not the issue here. But, the issue is that there are errors in the thinking of conventional Christianity, by conventional Christianity I mean that which is recognized in the Church as the highest spiritual example, the standard for everything else. Today’s Christians, in […]
