World War II and the Conscientious Objector Overseas

World War II and the Conscientious Objector Overseas The Gestapo, Nazi Germany’s feared secret police force, was created by Hermann Goring, and controlled during World War II by Heinrich Himmler.

The Larger Issues (Baking Cake for Homosexuals)

The Larger Issues (Baking Cake for Homosexuals)

The Larger Issues I fully endorse the letter, “Religious Freedom vs. Discrimination” by Thomas F. Harkins, Jr. It is unreasonable, coercive, and unkind for those who believe in any form of sexual immorality (including homosexuality) to force a sincere person to choose between his “sincerely held religious convictions” (on the one hand) and keeping his business operative (on the other […]

How were the Early Communities of Christ Organized? Did the body of Christ in the first century have popes, cardinals, bishops, pastors, ministers,monks, nuns, priests, ruling elders, clergymen, and other functionaries? What does Scripture say?

Whom Should We Address in Prayer?

Whom Should We Address in Prayer? QUESTION: “Whom should we address in prayer?” “Some of our friends seem to seldom pray to God the Father; they generally address the Lord Jesus when they pray.

“Calling on the Name of the Lord”

“Calling on the Name of the Lord”

“Calling on the Name of the Lord” Considering how many people within “Christendom” teach that an individual can be saved merely by professing a belief in Christ, it is not surprising that skeptics claim that the Bible contradicts itself in this regard. Although Peter and Paul declared, “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21; […]

Does Mary Intercede for Christians?

Does Mary Intercede for Christians?
