The Church: What it Is, and What it Ain’t, Part 1

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series The Church: What it Is, and What it Ain't

Looking for the real Church may not be as easy as it sounds. It may be more akin to looking for buried treasure, or at least the finding of it would be. Some have found it when they weren’t even looking for it; others have tripped over it and never appreciated its true value, kicking […]

My conclusion to Dr. Robert Moyer’s pamphlet could have very easily been the introduction, because I am not as interested in proving Moyer wrong as I am in getting at the truth. It is not the refutation of Dr. Moyer that I am primarily interested in; he is just one of the overwhelmingly large numbers […]

This entry is part 1 of 8 in the series The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War

I have been a frequent visitor to the VA Hospital in Indianapolis lately. There is a lot of complaining that goes on there by the vets, mostly about the wait time and secondly about the quality of care. Neither of these greatly alarms me; I think they do a commendable job. I also think that […]

A Conspiracy of Silence

The 60’s era was a time when war and violence became personal. The images streaming in via television and magazine of cargo planes filled with body bags, F4 Phantom jets delivering payloads of napalm incinerating jungle and humans, B52 bombers converting landscape into moonscape, Cobra gunships pouring out lead like neon pencils delivering letters of […]

Tony Jones Says “Death to Homeschooling!”

This article by Tony Jones caught my attention because of the title. Why would someone write an article entitled Death to Homeschooling!? The article itself simply states the reason he doesn’t send his kid to public French immersion, charter school, or private school, or homeschool; but he doesn’t condemn any of the others, only homeschool.

Setting Aside the Power of the Gospel for a Powerless Substitute

David Dombrowski of Lighthouse Trails Research has written the following article showing that what we are experiencing in the Church today, in nearly every instance, and advertised as authentic, is not the “power of God” at all. Rather, the pure Word of God has been substituted or replaced with pop psychology, new age teachings, and […]

Religion: Satan’s Greatest Deception (A Repost)

Religion is a curious and fascinating thing. I haven't done a study on the number of religions that exist in the world: main line religions, their various branches, sects, cults, and spin offs, but the vastness has to be mind boggling, all claiming to be the truth, lead to the truth, or be a variant […]

Keep Thy Heart with All Diligence

By David Dombrowski Used With Permission From Lighthouse Trails A growing and subtle tactic that is actually producing more “bridges” is to invite speakers of differing values, perspectives, and doctrines to the same conference and thereby make the speaker of compromised or apostate teachings appear more credible. It is all too easy in the busy […]
