Perhaps the most absurd of all theories created to explain away the empty tomb is the “swoon” theory. Those who hold this view believe Jesus didn’t die on the cross. Rather, he almost died. Mistaking him for dead, the soldiers placed the bloody and fainted body of Jesus in the tomb. After three days, he […]
Like the liberal Sadducees and the “enlightened” Greeks of Jesus’ day, modern skeptics believe that it is impossible to come back from the dead. When starting with the presupposition that miracles are impossible, skeptics are limited by their worldview and are required to look for a naturalistic cause for “miracles.” Such is the case with […]
The Apostle Paul states in 1 Corinthians 15:14, that “if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.” He continues this thought in verse 19 stating, “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most miserable.” (1599 Geneva Bible) The […]
American Vision, Tolle Lege Press, and Creation Book Publishers joined forces to create a 600-square foot exhibit at the 2008 International Christian Retail Show (ICRS) in Orlando, Florida last week. The International Christian Retail Show is the annual exhibition for the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA), of which American Vision is a member.
This week I will continue the discussion of God’s Law and it’s authority and application today. In response to my article last week, God’s Law: Fulfilled or Finished?, I received the following email from Mike.
Last week I wrote an article entitled, God’s Law: The Standard Yesterday, Today, and Forever, and encouraged everyone to read the late Dr. Greg Bahnsen’s book, By This Standard, which American Vision recently republished.
There’s great confusion and even debate in Christian circles today as to the role of God’s Law in our personal lives and in society as a whole. Is God’s Law the standard for everyone or just for Christians? Should Christians seek to make civil laws conform to God’s Law?
Our good friends at Creation Ministries International (CMI) have produced an excellent booklet called, 15 Reasons to Take Genesis as History. It was written because so many have been misled into thinking that the Genesis account of creation is not actual history and that it is just some sort of theological argument or polemic.
The Apostle Paul states in 1 Corinthians 15:14, that "…if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain." He continues this thought in verse 19 stating, "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most miserable." (1599 Geneva Bible)
In 1620, long before the United States won its independence from England, the Pilgrims came to America’s shores with this mission statement,
"[W]e all came to these parts of America, with one and the same end and aim, namely, to advance the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ."
-New England Confederation of 1643
I’m not one to blame every problem in the world on the devil for two reasons. First, there’s enough evil in the heart of man to account for most if not all the evil in the world today (Jer. 17:9). Second, we’re told in Matt. 12:29 that Jesus bound Satan when he came to earth to establish His Kingdom.
Publishing and distributing biblical worldview training materials is our number one priority at American Vision. Why? The following email from Joseph in Pennsylvania says it all.
"Christian bashing, the last acceptable form of bigotry in America, is alive and well and growing more intense and hysterical by the day. For decades, desperate secularists and cultural elites have stereotyped and marginalized conservative Christians in an effort to stop their growing influence on American culture. And the defamation of Christians by progressives
Why does a Biblical worldview ministry that teaches people about America’s Christian heritage take on the controversial subject of Bible prophecy? What does Bible prophecy have to do with America’s history? The answer is quite simple. What people believe about the future impacts how they live today.
Our president, Gary DeMar, was recently invited to speak at a worldview conference. He was told that he could speak on any worldview subject he chose, with the exception of two: public education and eschatology.
American Vision is teaming up with Coral Ridge Ministries, Family Research Council, American Family Association, Liberty Counsel, and the Alliance Defense Fund to hold a special seminar called Pastors, Pulpits, and Politics: Christian Rules of Engagement. The goal of this event is to teach Christian leaders what the Bible (and the IRS) say about Christian […]
An article that I wrote earlier this year, Hymnbook Eschatology, made the case that Dispensational theology is hard to find in the hymnbook. Of course, it is not found in the pages of Scripture either.
This Tuesday’s forecast called for yet another week of bone dry weather for the Southeastern United States. Since American Vision’s headquarters are just 30 miles west of Atlanta, the continual lack of rain has hit really close to home.
