A Brotherhood of Peace

There are not many voices in the room when it comes time to exult Christ in His doctrine and lifestyle of non-resistance to evil. There are not many men who will take part in the battle on this front. The odds in this world are overwhelmingly against those who choose to believe this teaching from […]

Gotta Catch-up

The back-end of IndyWatchman has been down for quite sometime but is now back up. I was unable to repair it myself so I had to bring in the big-guns. All is well on the home front now. Your patience is appreciated. In the mean time I have attended a few Anabaptist conferences and gathered […]

IndyWatchman ~ Something for my friends from my secret garden. I suppose we all have that place where we go to get away and think and pray and mediate on where we’re at and where we’re going. Sometimes we go alone and sometimes we get swept along with the tide and we find ourselves in […]

The Way of The Genius

Men want to express themselves so they communicate; they use words, writing, sound, painting, drawing, and photography. The creative soul sees a thing in its mind or in its eye and translates visions into symbols with meaning. He pronounces a sound a certain way  and charges the airway with reverberations conveying a feeling of fear, […]

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 […]

The second law of thermodynamics “entropy” simply stated says all things slowly reduce from order to disorder. In other words, what was once new becomes old, what once was hot becomes cold, todays bread will soon gather mold, and when we think we are rich it is only fools gold. We go to Church and […]

A Biblical View Of Political Involvement
