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 Instrument of Our Own Undoing

We have all heard preachers talk about the Cross? What did you think of that? How was it delivered and how was it received? What is a “daily Cross”? Looking from the inside of the Protestant Church, and I would dare say all of today’s Churches, of which I was a part of for more […]

Following the Church To the World

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Christendom's Dishonest Credentials

The Pied Piper of the 21st Century “Justification” is a word that we Christians love and rightly so, it is fundamental to our belief. The justification, as historically validated by Christ and preached by the Apostles, is not the Justification at issue in this article. The issue here is a fault that has been weaved […]

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 […]

Sin and The Virus

Is there anyone today who is not aware of the outbreak of the Corona Virus? All humans are susceptible to plagues. Just as deadly flues can infect every nation and people so is the nature of sin. No longer a resident of The Garden of Eden mankind now lives in the Garden of Evil, an […]

A Timely Message About Peace

Peace, who has even heard of such a thing in our times, is it something new? The Catholics and Evangelicals know nothing of peace, confusing it with a militaristic state of control; and the Anabaptists confuse it with a physiological state of rest. Then, what is Peace? The earliest prophets anticipated peace as one of […]

A Look at Modern Anabaptism by a Resent Disciple to Its Older Ideals of Non-Resistance.

The traditional importance of non-resistance has shaped a distinctive Anabaptist personality. Early Anabaptists spoke of Gelassenheit, a yieldingness and surrender to God’s will in the face of persecution and martyrdom. Over an extended period of time, however, the Anabaptist’s radical appeal and challenge to the existing Christian society became transformed into a message which cultivated […]

Some Roads are More Lonely than Others

The road beneath is dark and dead, Visions and memories invade our sick heads. Where hope once lived and flowers grew; Where butterflies flittered and birds flew. Now, little other care have we; Now, the road and blackness are all we see. Away, to nowhere, a place to hide, No color, no feeling, just yellow […]

Tension!!

After being associated with the Anabaptist for a little while now the question for me arises: What is the most apparent difference between my experience with the Protestant Church and the Anabaptist Church? Both the Protestants and Anabaptist claim to preach the Gospel of Jesus, but the effect that that message has had in the […]

The Christian as a Sign In the World

It is clear that the Christian is in the world and that in the world he must remain like a uniformed soldier that is “on-duty” in a hostile land. When his job is done it will be God’s calling that will bring him home and not his own doing. Similarly, Christians are to return to, […]
