Halloween's Improbable Origin and Meaning for Christians

The original title of this article is “Concerning Halloween.” Since it was first published in 1996, it has made its way around the world and stirred up a lot of discussions. That’s a good thing. As you can imagine many Christians oppose Halloween for obvious reasons. It’s lost its original meaning. You can hear it […]

Why I Am a One-Issue Voter

The issue of abortion has barely come up in the debates of Election 2020. But for many of us, it is still the issue that matters most. I am a one issue voter, without apology, and that issue is abortion. I’m against it. If a politician thinks it is acceptable---whatever the rhetoric---to deliberately kill a […]

One of the Most Despicable Senate Speeches Ever Given

Since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in 2016, Democrats have said some very bad things about him, his supporters, and the United States. The nomination and confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett has driven these people to the lowest of low when it comes to disparaging people they disagree with. How many times […]

Who Is Defending Classic Dispensationalism Today?

Eschatology is the study of the “last things.” The more popular terminology is “Bible prophecy.” There are numerous schools of thought on the subject. The most popular version—dispensational premillennialism—teaches that particular prophetic events are on the horizon, that a “rapture” of the Church precedes a seven-year period that includes the rise of an antichrist, a […]

The Apostle Paul and the Lesser of Two Evils

Christians are still bringing up “I can’t vote for the lesser of two evils.” Somehow they believe it's wrong to vote for someone like Donald Trump who is doing a number of things to stop abortion but it's OK to sit back and let Joe Biden and Kamala Harris win in November knowing full well […]

My Response to John Piper's 'Paths to Ruin' Article

Pastors are supposed to be prophets, not in the sense of foretelling but in forthtelling. The Old Testament prophets were critical of the immoral—lawless—actions of Israel’s religious and civil leaders, and they were never nice about it (e.g., Jer. 2:20; 3:1–3; Jer. 5:7–8). Jesus was equally critical and used harsh language to call out the […]

The Threat of Court-Packing

One of the most substantial issues of Election 2020 is the Left’s pledge to pack the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) if they win---a scheme neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris will disavow. Most people don’t realize how seriously this could undermine our entire democratic republic. In one fell swoop, they could undermine the United States, which […]

Sexual Preference v. Sexual Orientation: Control the Language ... Control the Issue

The homosexual movement went from “sexual preference” to “sexual orientation” overnight when Amy Coney Barrett used “sexual preference” during her Supreme Court nomination inquisition. Homosexuality is now a protected class. The Orwellian editors of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary “added the word ‘offensive’ to its entry and usage guidance of ‘preference’ and ‘sexual preference’ when referring to […]

The Political Choice Before Us

During the early nineties, the leaning Tower of Pisa started to lean too far. So engineers designed a plan to salvage the twelfth-century landmark from toppling over. The project went through several phases. First, counterweights were placed on the base of the tower to slow down its tendency to lean. Second, the tower was harnessed […]

Does 2 Thessalonians 1 Support Amillennialism?

The following is from the Abstract of the article: 2 Thessalonians 1 supports amillennialism because it is in tension with all the other major millennial views…. 2 Thessalonians 1 is in tension with postmillennialism.

Will There be Circumcision and Animal Sacrifices During the 'Millennium'?

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be on no benefit to you. And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he […]

We've Substituted the True God with a False God

It’s a cliché to say that this is the most important election in our lifetime. But I feel strongly that this is the most important election in our lifetime. There is so much at stake. Above all is the question of whether we will continue as one nation under God. Will we embrace America as […]
