                with fiction


But are terrified


                about truth.

We’re all traveling a road of no return.

We all need wisdom to discern

The right from the left, the wrong from the right;

To avoid tripping in the gathering night.

“Jesus is the Word, the Bible is words about the Word, theology is words about the words about the Word, and all the time your’re getting further from Christ.” [1]

  – Recorded in Edgar A. Bryan, Glimpses of Greatness, (Shoals, IN: Old Paths, 2009), 93.

Richard Wurmbrand on 2/29/1948, was arrested by Communist authorities in Romania.  On morning of this last Lord’s Day in February, pastor Wurmbrand was walking down the street.  A black four-door sedan pulled up beside him.  A man emerged from each door forced him into the sedan.  He spent fourteen years in prison. 

I was privilege to hear him at IHC (then held at God’s Bible School) in person.  Later he  founded Voice of the Martyrs.  He was born 3/24/1909 in Bucharest Romania – and passed from this life 2/17/2001 in Torrance, California.

When you see a puddle that’s ruddy,    

Don’t contemptuously call it “muddy,”

Unless its near-by-buddy

Is clear.

It may be the “ruddy season,”

Or have another reason,

Why to your eye it’s not pleasin’

My dear.      [1]

Broadway has the sound

Of lots and lots of room.

But it does not advertise

Its end is always doom.

“…We have in the holiness Movement the practice of such things as mixed-bathing, wearing of all sorts of brief attire, movie viewing (at home and in theaters), public sports participation, etc. and no one is supposed to utter a protest…” [1]

“Trying to find where some holiness preachers stand on some issues it like trying to hold down an eel on a slippery rock.” [2]

“…Many are fooled by the liberal holiness preacher’s terminology…‘worldliness’…he in no real sense means…”  [3]

Some have the “ability,”


To say “what they think,”


WITHOUT thinking!
