Jesus was a Hater

28 Feb., 2018 Yes, He was a “country boy,” said Clay Walker.  He liked to go “swimmin’ in the river, fishin’ for his dinner” and “livin’ with the sinners like me.”  And He “never had a million dollars,”nor “wore a lot of stylish fancy clothes.”  Just a good ol’ country boy.  Indeed, he  a nice […]

“Anger and Cowardice Fester Hate”

To the Wilmington News Journal Wilmington, Ohio Re:  (1 April, 2017) 3 April, 2017 Haters and Losers I think it was the curious title which drew my attention to the editorial: “Anger and Cowardice Fester Hate” (Wilmington News Journal, 1 April, 2017).   I am not sure of his meaning, but I infer from the rest […]

A Year of Achievement: A Look at the Trump Presidency

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/456168/donald-trump-first-year-conservative-success-story Writing for National Review in his excellent paean to President Trump (“The case for the Trump presidency,” February 7, 2018. See above link), Victor Davis Hanson gives us much for which to rejoice and give thanks for Trump’s succession to the Obamanation.  I do thank God every day for our national deliverance from Hitlery! He says: […]

A Christian Democrat?

30 January, 2018 It’s true i!  In times past that would have been a “narrow minded” and foolishly “partisan” slur. Not any more.   In 2018 it is Right On. As Micaiah Bilger writes in Lifenews (30 Jan, 2018): “Just three Democrats in the U.S. Senate supported a bill on Monday that would prohibit abortions after […]

The False Teaching of Evangelists

25 January, 2018 We are given the impression by the preaching of some “evangelists” that the Almighty is waiting for sinners to come to Him.  He is calling out, pleading, hoping anxiously,  anticipating the decision of the sinner to come to Him.  Oh, and how happy He is when a sinner chooses to turn from […]

U(P)SA and Sanctuary Cities

How might our United (Pagan) States of America resist continued paganization? How about by means of “Sanctuary Cities”? And, let it begin with Wilmington, Ohio. For how many generations have parents taught their children by means of a simple principle:  Do the right thing?   And there was always an unequivocal reply to the child who […]

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 […]

No Taxation without Cessation

. . . of Baby Murder 2 June, 2017 How does a legitimate government tolerate the murder of innocents? How does a legitimate government take tax money and pay for the murder of innocent without resistance from the citizens? Why do you continue to honor and support such authority? These are the questions that need […]

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 […]

Hitlery and Other Apostate United Methodists

27 Oct., 2016 It is not John or Charles Wesley or George Whitfield that I despise.  No, as a good Lutheran fellow, I appreciate any fellow Christian with a high (i.e. historic) view of the Scriptures and the defining Creeds of the Faith.  And that Faith is affirmed by historic Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Roman Catholics, […]
