An open BIble, Christians don't actually read it, though

The Ten Commandments – TRUTH

Yes, I am a theologian and a Bible scholar, but I don’t want to spend this blog explaining the arguments on both sides, I’m just pointing out that millions of Christians would consider someone telling you that you must obey the Ten Commandments to be un-Christian.

The Killers – No, Not The Band

Abstract Impressionist painting, art about America’s human sacrifice cult, it’s still in the shadows but it is working on taking over American fundamentalist Christianity.

Power of Faith, The Greater Power of Falsehood

Awaken, sleepers … I’m talking about those who have always considered themselves to be people of faith but who never think of themselves as worthy to speak out in defense of that faith. That’s FAITH, not legalism!

Religion – Christianity’s False Prophets

For years now, I’ve been warning you that false prophets disguised as angels of light have invaded and taken over the church in the form of televangelists and megachurch ‘pastors’ and now the church is finally starting to wake up – or so I hope.

Death and Dying Truth, All Of It

This article is about the process of dying from a purely scientific perspective. It is not about Heaven and Hell -those are theological topics.

Before that, most people – at least most educated people – understood that the Bible was a collection of stories people wrote about their own searches for God and meaning.

And I have warned you that this can and will degenerate into a killing and or a human sacrifice cult unless true Christians rise up as one to stop these people. This warning must be taken with the utmost seriousness or we are all doomed.
