Modern Prophets

Looking at the old testament of the Bible, it seems like there were a lot more prophets among the people than in modern times. Such an observation begs the question of whether God is withholding such gifts in our own times. If you consider that the events of the old testament played out over several... Continue Reading →

Christians as the Soul of the World

Sometime in the second century after Christ, a letter to Diognetus was written explaining Christianity. The author is unknown, and it is not known if the Diognetus that it was addressed to was the Diognetus that tutored Marcus Aurelius - but those details are unrelated to the importance of the letter, now known as the...

How to Defeat Fear

  We are called as Christians to be fearless, and to not fear men, the world, or evil. And yet we are still afraid of many things. How do we conquer our fears? That's probably the wrong question.

It's a phrase that appears throughout the site here at Eternal Revolution and there is even a shirt design using the phrase. I realized I never explained the source anywhere on this site. I admit, it is an... Continue Reading →

Why Are You Here?

What makes less ‘sense’:  A Christian Pirate  A Christian Samurai  or a Christian Financial Planner? G.K.

The mere minimum of the Church would be a deadly ultimatum to the world.”  Obviously that isn’t true of Anne Rice’s ‘Christianity,’ but is it... Continue Reading →

Called to be Faithful, not Successful

Although legendary and oft repeated quotes on the internet are sometimes inaccurate, and I have not been able to verify this one, the statement itself is very true:   God has not called me to be successful; He has called me to be faithful. -Mother Teresa of Calcutta   As you carry Christ's message to...
