Americas Salvation Story

I just finished a great book, Christianity, War and America’s Salvation Story by Michael E. Lewis. The book can be purchased at Sermon on the Mount Publishing in print or PDF format. The greater part of Christendom lives in denial of what Jesus came to accomplish during His time here and that denial is lived […]

Did Jesus Die So That You Could Remain Blind?

In 1967 I was seventeen years old and the Viet Nam war was hot. Radio, newspapers, and television were filled with real, live, action and everyone knew or had heard of someone who was wounded or killed in the fighting. The country was divided then between those who were patriots and would die for their […]

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 […]

How the Church Justifies the World

Man is justified by grace, that we all know, and that is not the issue here. But, the issue is that there are errors in the thinking of conventional Christianity, by conventional Christianity I mean that which is recognized in the Church as the highest spiritual example, the standard for everything else.

Blistering Heat and A Boiling Caldron

“He makes the depths seethe like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like blistering oil” The world is fighting evil on every front and every nation sees its neighbor as evil. Man has not fought his most difficult battle because it is the battle he must fight with himself, his own flesh. The […]

While It Is Called TODAY

Is it possible that so many of my Protestant friends have rejected the clear teachings, of not only history, but the New Testament, concerning the use of violence against his fellowman? Yes, it is not only possible but it is actually the case. That same New Testament also confirms that in these last days that […]

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 Christianization of War and Violence Pt. 3

This entry is part 3 of 5 in the series Christianization of war and violence

The Christians’ Justification for War and Violence As I stated in the first article, it is virtually impossible to find any support for Christians taking up arms against their enemy or for self-defense during the first 300 years of Church history. Today Christians proudly justify patriotism, involvement in politics, personal defense, capital punishment, and “just […]
