The Devil Adores the Christian Soldier

There are no Christian Patriots, a lie that’s everywhere believed, And as far as enduring suffering, God has closed His ears to thee. Your faith and life are based upon, a flag and sophistry, That you display with foolish pride, and think it sets you free. You have walked into harm’s way, and accepted the […]

Who is My Neighbor? Who is My Enemy?

Matthew 5:43-48 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain […]

The Dirty Little SECRET that Christians do not want to Acknowledge

What could that secret be? Well, it isn’t really a secret and can be seen openly in their conversations and even taught in their Churches, and celebrated each year with great fanfare, fireworks, and parades on The 4th of July.

License to Kill

The great foundation stone, universally used, by the Protestant and Catholic Church to justify the killing of their enemies, in concert with the state, is Romans 13. I have heard this chorus sung so often from the pulpit that there is virtually no Christian who can read this passage without filtering it through their favorite […]

Practical Holiness

Is there such a thing as practical holiness? Is there a Biblical holiness that is actually displayed in the lives of Christians? Or, is the holiness mentioned in Scriptures only theoretical? Are Christians only to be concerned with knowing the fundamental principles of holiness and not the application and implementation of these principles? Holiness is […]

The Most Powerful Weapon on Earth

The most unpleasant, and I must say stupid situation, I have ever found myself in is to have ownership of the most powerful weapon ever, without much caring about it or concern for its use. I can not say I was ignorant of this weapon because it was everywhere portrayed, illustrated, and exemplified by eyewitness […]

Love is Prophetic

Love is Prophetic Love is a prophecy, hidden deep within desire. Men ignore love’s potential, and the lateness of the hour. Love is moving earth below us, and the heaven up still higher, Yet men slumber in their apathy, ignorant of love’s great power. Love has forever in the past, and still now does exist, […]

The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War: Part 7

This entry is part 7 of 8 in the series The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War

In my refutation of Dr. Robert L. Moyer’s pamphlet, “The Christian and War” we have finally come to his objective of answering these two questions: 1. Can a Man Scripturally Be a Conscientious Objector? and 2. Shall a Christian Go to War? Can a Man Scripturally Be a Conscientious Objector? To the first  ques tion […]
