Another Look at the Catholic Church

Some things are worth repeating. Dave Hunt wrote a book twenty years ago called A Woman Rides the Beast that needs to be revisited. I have friends who have joined the Catholic Church because they were seeking religion, and they have, without a doubt, found the ultimate religion. In Dave’s book he shows accurately with […]

Are the Teachings of Jesus Credible? : A Call to Fidelity

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.

The last article in my refutation of Dr. Robert Moyer’s pamphlet, The Christian and War, left off by answering his question, “Does God Ever Authorize Human Governments to Take Life?”. Now we will continue to unravel his web by probing his next question. “Should Nations Ever Declare War?” As is his normal way of proceeding […]

It is a strange phenomenon how, over a period of time, things can become flip-flopped, and how once the flip occurs it takes on the appearance that it has always been that way. This is precisely the case pertaining to the Christian’s involvement in war and politics. It is also amazing how the very verses […]
