From Religion to the Only Gospel

The series, The Truth about Sin has been about discovering the prevalence of religious attitudes in mainstream Christianity.  Insofar as we focus on immorality/morality instead of sin, we function outside living spirituality. And what we need is power.  The goal of this blog is to that end, but we have some ground to cover before […]

Homosexuality the Scapegoat

“Sixty-one percent of self-identified Christian singles who answered a recent ChristianMingle survey said they are willing to have casual sex…” –EX Ministries “80 percent of unmarried evangelical young adults (18-29) said that they have had sex – slightly less than 88 percent of unmarried adults, according to the teen pregnancy prevention organisation.” -CNN Belief Blog Is it […]

Homosexuality & Sin

Posted by on Mar 18, 2019 in The Truth about Sin | No Comments

If you do not identify as a Christian, Christians cannot judge your moral actions. If you have ever wanted a Christian to answer the question:  “Is homosexuality a sin?”  The answer is:  “That is between you and God.” Here is what our Scriptures say: “But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother or […]

Three Kinds of Christian

Posted by on Mar 15, 2019 in The Truth about Sin | No Comments

“And I, brothers & sisters, could not speak to you as to spiritual people, but as to people of flesh, as to infants in Christ.” – I Cor. 3:1 There are three kinds of Christianity  – despite the thousands of Christian denominations.  The first is Spiritual Christianity.  This is the narrow path, the real thing.  A Spiritual Christian is […]

Sin & The Blind

Posted by on Feb 20, 2019 in The Truth about Sin | No Comments

In the last post, I basically said that sin is gangrene, but how do we get a knowledge of sin that we grasp in our souls?  Have scholars, academic theologians, the church fathers or the creeds accomplished this for us?  Can man’s highest reasoning lead us to spiritual knowledge? Here is what Jesus says: “I praise […]

Sin began…

Posted by on Feb 7, 2019 in The Truth about Sin | No Comments

I did not set out to write a novel that would correct Christianity.  I set out to write a book that would embody Christianity in symbolism, but when I began that undertaking, I knew it had to be fresh.   Rather than transcribe a metaphor from tradition, I prayed for inspiration.  Five years later I was looking […]

From Symbolism to the Truth about Sin

Harry Potter, Absolute Truth, The Book of Ruth, Witchcraft, and Homosexuality all tied into a conversation on Symbolism & Spirituality? The goal was to provide a multi-faceted understanding of the spiritual value of symbols.  It was a lot to bite off for one series, but its just the beginning!  We’ll be circling back over some […]

Witches & Materialists (Pt. V of VI)

This is the fifth installment of the series Symbolism & Spirituality and its a good time to recap the broad strokes: In Part I we suggested the Harry Potter Series is wrought with the symbolism of alchemy.  We discussed the series’ universal influence and its achievement of becoming a shared text.  Thus, in Part I […]

Symbolism & Prophecy (Pt. IV of VI)

Prophecy is often thought of as foretelling the future, but I prefer to define it as outside the bounds of time.  Prophecy is mainly about truth, and it is poignant.  Let’s orient around some Biblical symbols that are easily recognised. The tabernacle on earth was a copy of the one in Heaven, which Jesus cleansed […]

The New Absolute Truth (Pt. III of VI)

The world is rejecting absolute truth and turning to relativity. Is it? In many senses we are unravelling moral absolutes and promoting tolerance. Does this mean we’ve altogether thrown away absolutes in exchange for compassion?  Does this mean we reject absolute truth? I propose that logic is not dead, but that the path to finding […]
