Because of the latest developments in Syria, prophecy prognosticators are coming out of the woodwork . . . again. The same thing happened in 2011 when prophecy hobbyists were claiming that Isaiah 17 was being fulfilled right before our eyes. Here’s an example from a video that was uploaded on July 21, 2011: Damascus in […]
Can We Please Get off the End of the World Kick
Jan 29, 2013
I’ve been following prophecy speculators for almost exactly 40 years. They all have one thing in common. They’ve been consistently wrong for nearly 2000 years. In the 1970s, Hal Lindsey’s The Late Great Planet Earth was a mega-best seller. It was the No. 1 non-fiction book of the decade. (Some would put it in the […]

In 2000, John MacArthur wrote a book with the title Why Government Can’t Save You.(1) When this book first appeared, I wrote that I didn’t know any Christians who believed government can or should save us.

If you tell someone he can’t do something, in most cases that person will stop before he even tries.

Is There a Kingdom Context to the Olivet Discourse?
Aug 13, 2012
, , , , ,
A friend sent me a video of John MacArthur preaching on Mark 13, the Olivet Discourse. There is no need for me to interact with it in detail since I’ve written a verse-by-verse commentary on Matthew’s version of the Olivet Discourse. Two items caught my attention. The first has to do with context. Here’s how […]
