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 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 […]

Degeneration or Regeneration: Your choice

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

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 […]

Getting Engaged

No! I am not looking for a wife, I am perfectly content with the one I’ve had for the last fifty years. But, what I have experienced of Christianity and the Church for the last forty-five years has not prepared me for adequately engaging the world creatively or constructively, and for this I need to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Am I My Brother’s Keeper?

Am I My Brother’s Keeper? Today, as never before, the whole world is preparing for war, and as never before, Christians are united behind the effort to kill their fellow man. The blood of endless wars cry out from the ground yet the only response from today’s Christians is “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Where […]

Will You Be Seed or Will You Be Safe?

Most people who call themselves “Christian” are Christians by default and not by decision; they are Christians by birth or they have caught their belief the same way a person might catch a cold, by contact. Muslims are Muslims the same way, because they were born into a Muslim family or nation, and very few […]
