A Description of a Good Pastor

Posted on 11 Sept., 2017 Canterbury Tales Geoffrey Chaucer was born, the son of a vintner, in London in about 1342.  His value as an Englishman was such that Edward III paid a part of his ransom in 1360 after he had been captured while fighting the French. He was well versed in the doctrines […]

Y’all Do the Right Thing!

5 Sept., 2017 A brief Apology for the Faith ποιεῖτε ὃ ἔξεστιν  “Do what is lawful” (cf. Luke 6:2) Why?  What is the motivation?  Instinctually, the “right thing,” from a materialistic, even evolutionary point of view, is equivalent that which facilitates my well being, safety, and survival.  Quite bluntly, this view would permit murder, cannibalism, robbery, lying  […]

Judge Orrick (or is it Ork?)

21 July, 2017 On 8 June, 2017, the Associated Press reported: “The leader of an anti-abortion group who is being sued wants to disqualify a U.S. judge who barred him from releasing videos recorded at meetings of an association of abortion providers.” Judge William Orrick held David Daleiden in civil contempt for violating a court […]

Slaying Abortion’s Goliath (7 January, 1997)

Posted 27 June, 2017 in remembrance of Paul Hill 20 years after his execution. The essay by Paul Hill (7 January, 1997), “Slaying Abortion’s Goliath”  is transcribed with abridgments below.  Here is my introduction: On 29 July, 1994, Paul Hill terminated Abortionist John Britton, 69, and his collaborator, one James H. Barrett, a 74-year-old retired Air […]

What is a Repentant Church in a Holocaust? (1989)

Posted 23 June, 2017 The following was published 28 years ago.  1989.   It  was 16 years after the SCOTUS defiled the land with Roe v. Wade.  It was the same year that I was released from jail following completion of four years imprisonment on a six-year sentence in connection with the destruction of abortuaries along […]

Portrait of Betrayal

Michael Bray, 1988 De Tocqueville’s alacritous 19th century account of American society draws the affections of Christian Patriots hither. In an age of license and decadence, his account of public civility and community spirit is attractive.  In our time of convoluted “pluralism” (read: polytheism), his commendation of the explicitly Christian foundations of American society provides […]

Wrestling: A Personal Tribute

31 March, 2017 Revised 22 July, 2017 Distinctive Features of the Sport One of the great blessing of wrestling is instruction in humility.  Everyone takes a beating sometime. Thinking back,  I believe I also learned through wrestling about the value of volunteer work: those coaches who put so much time and patience into my efforts […]

The Local Church(es) of Wilmington

Michael Bray 28 Feb., 2017 I am grateful for the article in the Journal featuring pastors of three churches in town (“Keys to a Thriving Congregation,” 28 February,  by Gary Huffenberger).  There was no definition of  a Christian “church” supplied, but based upon the fact that all three were by their implied affirmation of the […]

Bogus SCOTUS

Michael Bray 20 Feb., 2017 Why do we allow the trendy opinions of a couple Jews and apostate Gentile Christians rule the land – overthrowing the laws of God, the nation, and our cities? The evanescent feelings, mindset, or “opinions” of “the Court” – like the afflatus of an ass – will pass.  Law, however, must – […]

Snarr, Civil Rights, and THE Issue at Hand

22 Feb., 2017 As reported by Neil Snarr in the Journal (21 Feb., 2017) there was in Wilmington an  anti-slavery newspaper published from 1851-1855, The Herald of Freedom, edited  one John W. Chaffin.  I was delighted to read about it. To the glory of Biblical truths and justice and to the credit of these Christian […]
