An Urgent Inquiry into the Nature of the Church

  I have written in the past how I came to understand that most of what we see exhibited as the “Church” in the world is not the Church the Holy Spirit has revealed through the pages of the New Testament. Any honest perusal of those pages will show plainly that there is no similarity between […]

The Garden of Eden, and After

His Word is His Bond

  In a time, not so long ago, a man of character would be referred to as a man of his word. It might be said of him, “His word is his bond”. This was the era, now gone, when it was a compliment to call some one God-fearing.  Now is the era of the likeable […]

Deception

Establishing the Fact Why is it that every "Christian" thinks he or she is going to go to Heaven? The Bible is very plain concerning the fact that that isn’t going to happen. Everyone who says "Lord, Lord" will not make it. But, it doesn’t matter, wherever you go, or who ever you talk to, […]

Hellbent On Sin

And the sheep shepherd themselves

  It just recently occurred to me through a comment by a sister on another blog. The sheep are shepherding themselves. To peruse the Christian blogosphere, by and large (there are some notable exceptions) the ones blowing the trumpet and warning the flock of danger are the uncredentialed, unordained but Holy Spirit- sensitized sheep.

Our Treasonous Heart

  There is a point of no return for believers when getting involved too heavily in matters of life in this world, especially where other people=s money is involved, or you have committed large amounts of other resources, like time and energy in things or opportunities, that you consider worthwhile.
