Papers Please

If you can register it with government, it may be good, it’s probably legal, and I might even give money to it… but it is NOT Christianity.

The Kingdom of God is above the earth and Christians believe that Christianity is the Kingdom of God come down to earth. Actions on the earth register with God—God doesn’t need to register with the earth.

I’m not suggesting any kind of rebellion against the earthly governments on the earth God created, mostly because Jesus didn’t either. In fact, quite the opposite: You don’t rebel against something lower than yourself… that wouldn’t make sense. If governments attack Christians, Christians get martyred because Jesus will bring us back to life—martyrdom verdicts from anti-god governments are rejected by the Courts of the Kingdom of Heaven, thus, we’re resurrected. Beat that. Why rebel against a lower court than yourself? America says it’s UNDER God, so, Christians don’t plan military revolt… well, unless they are in bed with the State.  · · · →

China on Missionaries

China, I’m an American Christian in Asia. Please put a stop to Western missionaries in your country. Their religion has not helped our divorce rate nor our family values. However, Watchman Nee’s Local Church (召會) has helped greatly. They don’t want large religious establishments or organized movements, they only want Jesus Christ Himself. You can trust them, but don’t take my word for it. You have the evidence there, in China, with you. They obey your laws and respect you. They are your Church and I want America to learn from them.  · · · →

Credibility Check

The Point

OPINION—Much of what we know from long history is anecdotal at best, coming from tradition. But could that actually be more credible than the academic obsession we have today?

General Eisenhower insisted that as many photographs as possible be taken of the Jewish Holocaust aftermath because, some day, so he claimed, someone would try to deny that any of it ever happened. Now, not even a century later, accredited academians and even Middle-East governments are making the denial Eisenhower predicted. What’s the point in certification if it doesn’t stop such obtuse lies? Perhaps, certifying the lies was Satan’s intention all along.

Tradition tells us that there were two zodiacs. Yes, TWO! The first was held by Noah (the guy with the ark) and his ancestors. Supposedly, Noah believed that the stars told a story of a loving Creator God who would redeem humanity through a suffering messiah borne of a virgin.  · · · →
