Winston Churchill wrote in The Gathering Storm, the first of his six volume set dealing with World War II, of the dark, foreboding storm clouds that began gathering over Europe following the end of World War I and the Versailles Treaty that was supposed to protect Europe against Germany’s future rearming to again threaten Europe.

Churches Should Repudiate their Tax Exempt Status!

It is going to get bad when public officials demand that religious groups obey oppressive federal laws or go out of business. It may be the issue of providing health care for church workers; payment of federal taxes; zoning; licensing; accreditation; same-sex marriage; ordaining women; hiring homosexuals; ad infinitum. It is time for religious leaders […]

Christians Cave to a Confused, Corrupt Culture!

The early Christian churches captured and transformed the Roman Empire with the Gospel! Famous historian Will Durant wrote, “Caesar and Christ had met in the arena and Christ had won.” That would not be an accurate statement of contemporary Christianity in view of the major mischief of the U.S. Supreme Court recently, the Congress, and […]

Evangelical Jim Wallis Jumps into the Depths of Demagoguery: Proves His Racism!

Jim Wallis is a loosey-goosey religious leader who has been leading foolish followers out into left field in recent years. Jim used the tragedy in Sanford, Florida as an excuse to jump into the diseased depths of demagoguery where he is still trying to keep his head above the stinking, swirling water. If Jim would […]

Churches in China: Complex, Confusing, Convoluted!

China has a complex, confusing, and convoluted religious structure; however, there is no question that it is having one of the greatest revivals in history! There are more real Christians in China than in America! Chinese Christians have been crushed since the Reds took over (with the help of the U.S. State Department!) in 1949, […]

Church Conditions in China: A Little Compromise is Acceptable!

Many Christians in China attend an officially registered church and an illegal house church and there are even incidents of the government-approved Three Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM) churches permitting unregistered house churches to meet in their building! But not very often! The illegal house-church movement has about 100 million worshippers nationwide, experts agree, and the […]

I Will Not Obey the Law!

Each Wednesday I publish one of my earlier columns that I hope will be instructive, informative, inspiring, and maybe infuriating. The following column was first published in 2008: Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, “To thine own self be true, for it must follow as dost the night the day, that canst not then be false to […]

Should the American Flag be Displayed in Churches?

I can’t win with this issue, but I don’t have to. All Americans, especially Christians, should be thankful, thoughtful, and tireless patriots. We should love our country, pray for it, obey its constitutional laws (as long as they are not contrary to God’s Word), and pay our taxes. We should be excited and thrilled as […]

Baptist Preacher Agrees with Pope Benedict!

Each Wednesday I publish an earlier column that I hope will be instructive, informative, inspiring, and sometimes infuriating. The following column was first published in 2007.   No, I have not apostatized nor have I joined the “rush to Rome” as have some Anglicans, Lutherans, Evangelical groups, and Mennonites. However, I find myself agreeing with […]

Can Baptists Learn Something About Church Discipline From Medieval Church?

Each Wednesday I publish one of my old columns that I hope will be informative, instructive, and maybe inspiring. Sometimes they are infuriating! This column was published in 2007.   All major church denominations teach church discipline when members go astray or, more correctly, live ungodly lives. Roman Catholics have always taught that concept but […]
