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 […]

Puzzled About the Plague of Coronavirus?

I’m a little puzzled! With all the “faith” healers that surround the President, and all the television charlatans who harp their healing abilities, and all the spiritual millionaires selling books and filling stadiums, and all the Kenneth Copeland’s, and Pat Robertson’s, and T. D. Jakes, Jimmy Swaggart’s, Peter Popoff’s, Jack Van Impe’s, and Jesse Duplantis’, […]

The Insanity of Our Sanity

“I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.” William Tecumseh Sherman War is truly hell and violence is sadistic, yet […]

The State of Professional Preachers

My experience in the commercial Church with the commercial pastor is that for him individuals are merely for his own self-stimulation; he discards them as a tree shakes off and forgets its leaves and then is rejuvenated by a new Spring collection, leaving the old foliage withered and forgotten. He comes from the unknown and […]

Celebrating the 500th Year of the Radical Reformation

We here at IndyWatchman are celebrating the 500th year of the Radical Reformation while others are celebrating just the regular Reformation which has given us the greater part of the apostasy we are witnessing today. While it was the Radicals who gave us “believers baptism” and “separation of Church and state” all the credit was […]

In the World But Not of It?

What does it mean to be in the world but not of it? I know it means different things to different Christian people, and that it has become the “Get Out of Jail Free Card” for all those who love the world and use this verse of Scripture to justify all of their dirty little […]

The Lesson of the Lamb

Christ’s example to us is richly illustrated, demonstrated, and exemplified by way of His many teachings and in His genius and spirit. He could have easily commanded armies and defeated every corrupt ruler and coercive power on earth, if it pleased Him. But He did not avail himself of such power. Christ yielded Himself, as […]

Military Courts and Bible Verses

I have written extensively concerning Christian involvement in politics, at any level, and that the involvement in this process is forbidden to Christians. I find it very easy, personally, to understand the New Testament’s teaching in this regard, but for most Christians this understanding is not so apparent. Patriotism and its associated emotions run very […]

Pray For Peace

http://youtu.be/i68Q8d4bpVg

  I listened to Reba McEntire’s new song Pray For Peace that was shared with me on Facebook. I, of course, agree that there needs to be much prayer for peace in the world, but a peace that is not of this world. We will not likely ever see the kind of peace the world prays […]
