The Gospel of the Kingdom: FORETOLD BY THE PROPHETS

This has turned out to be a very interesting little book. What has grabbed my interest, besides the obvious fact of it being about the Kingdom of God, is Mauro’s early grasp of how dangerous dispensationalism was, even at the early date in which this was written. He foresaw how, if not stopped, it would […]

This is an interesting book by Philip Mauro. After ordering it at Amazon I realized a condensed version was available online, so want to post a few portions from it’s contents, as I read it in paperback. Beginning with his intro you can sense by his tone how dangerous he believes this “new” fangled “modernistic” […]

The Centrality of the Cross

…Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.  For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  For it is written, […]

Remaining Silent: In Perilous Times

In the days when I was a police officer in Canada, the law was that it was a crime to do something that would cause harm to another person, but neglecting to do something that resulted in another person’s harm was equally criminal. Take a moment to think about that in light of the numbers of people […]

An Open Letter to those Who Do Not Know Jesus Christ….

It’s a fact that true Biblical Christianity is terribly misrepresented in America today by many of the loudest voices claiming to be Christians.

Charisma and Michael Brown “Missed the Boat”

Viewers who hear plenty of right-wing religious voices on cable TV might be surprised to know that the biggest problem facing America in the minds of many Religious Right leaders is that conservative preachers aren’t being sufficiently political or aggressive. That gripe is a major theme at Religious Right gatherings, and is repeated in a […]

Interview with Brother Andrew

Open Doors is a wonderful ministry. I first became involved with the work of Brother Andrew in the 1980’s while teaching sunday school.  A lot of topics are covered within the interview, all of them interesting, but I especially liked his response to this particular question asked by CP, CP:In my interview with Carl Moeller […]

The Muslims are Coming! Dust Off Your Bibles

Love the title of this post…and along with the mini-message below, it’s the quote of the day  From Resting in His Grace, This should serve as a wake up call for Christianity (Romans 13:11).

Boycotts – More Carnal Weapons

Great article by Rick Frueh at Following Judah’s Lion Men and women have risked their lives for Jesus Christ…Even today there are men and women whose lives are at risk daily… But in today’s evangelical paradise what makes the news are spurious little attempts to appear as if we are confronting evil. No longer will […]

Something to think about… quote, Before you read this, if you aren’t familiar with me, you need to know that I am a Christian who struggles with homosexuality.
