The Church (Part 1): Trail of Blood

Most of us know the difference between The Christian Church and the local church. One is spiritual, and the other is physical. When COVID hit last year, I heard many Christians appeal to the Church as an excuse to abandon their church – because the “Church is not a building."

Dead Bodies and Evil Spirits

Our bodies are animated clumps of dead flesh. The second we are conceived we begin the dying process.

This is the very concept that we find in John 3:5 when Jesus says "Except a man… Continue reading Dead Bodies and Evil Spirits

Why I Write

“Under the governance of the printing press, discourse in America was different than it is now – generally coherent, serious, and rational”   -Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death  The value of the written word has been lost in our postmodern American culture.

“Why” Christianity

One phrase; two intentions.  The first is the question, why Christianity?  WHY CHRISTIANITY?  Because Christianity is valid in its internal consistency – the Bible does not contradict itself, and a “true believer” is a fundamentalist who follows the principles in the Book (at least as best as we can). When a believer follows the tenets of… Continue reading “Why” Christianity
