Serpent Seed of Satan

(Originally printed in the Winter/Spring 2016 Issue of the MCOI Journal Page 8) By Ken Ammi Behold, I shew you a mystery; … .” Thus wrote the Apos­tle Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:51, and it is the view of what this mystery is which fuels the alleged Serpent Seed of Satan Theory. It fuels both its identification and revela­tion for “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the hon­our of kings … Continue reading

Playing the Trump Card

I get it. I really do. Americans are sick of career politicians with half-answers and more flip-flopping than Waffle House on a Friday night. Trump doesn’t give half answers and when he flips, he somehow makes you think it was only an oversight and really not a deeply held conviction that he’s reneging on. I get it. He’s not the establishment. He’s a successful businessman. When our country has been messed up by a bunch … Continue reading

Many have claimed the real story of Jesus is different from the records of the New Testament. As early as the second century different cults were claiming to have found new information. All claimed the lost years of Jesus’ childhood as their basis. In Part 1 of this series we discussed the new form this has taken in recent years where Jesus is claimed to have travelled to India to become a Buddhist. The article … Continue reading
