Music

Just one look at the cover of Metallica’s album Kill’em All should be enough for any reasonable person to know a true Christian wouldn’t listen to their music. I’m a former fan who no longer listens to their music for moral reasons. Many others quit listening to Metallica when they released their album Load, because…

Justice in This Life and the Next

My 13-year stay in prison gave me a lot of time to think about the bad decisions I had made. I remember only bits and pieces from my last night of freedom that preceded prison, and the two people I was with were dead soon after. I’ll never know exactly what happened when I was…

Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

Pastors and other elders are under-shepherds for a congregation of Christians, though they themselves are under a Shepherd: the LORD. They too are sheep, some of which are actually wolves in disguise. “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their…

A Dark Secret

Before revealing a dark secret of mine to anyone and everyone who reads my blog, I want to say there aren’t words to express how grateful I am to be alive. Many things could have killed me, though two events in particular stand out in my mind. One night I got stabbed in the chest…

Artificial Christianity

Oxygen’s attraction to iron causes the formation of iron oxide (FeO), better known as rust, and while that’s a problem, this attraction between the two elements is needed for our survival. It’s iron in the hemoglobin of red blood cells that attracts oxygen we inhale. We’re in trouble if we inhale carbon monoxide (CO), a…

Interfaithism

The ancient Romans built roads that branched out from Rome to all parts the empire, giving rise to the saying, “All roads lead to Rome.” The saying later came to mean all ways of doing something will lead to the same result. It’s also a saying used by apostates who claim all religions lead to…

Hair Length

Though it’s preached by few churches, God wants men to have short hair and women to have long hair. I Corinthians 11 teaches that women shouldn’t cut their hair, and also that it’s shameful for men to have long hair. Much is said about this issue, and then verse 16 in that chapter seems to…

Killing Babies

In the fifth century B.C. soldiers in the Greek city-state of Sparta checked on newborn babies to see if they looked healthy. Only the strong were valued in their warrior society, so they took unhealthy babies to a mountainside where they were left to die. Horrible, right? What if they “humanely” killed the babies by…
