Is a One-World Government Around the Corner?

Is a One-World Government Around the Corner?

I received the following in an email: The Vatican is pushing for the establishment of “a supranational authority” with worldwide scope and “universal jurisdiction” to guide economic policies and decisions. (i.e., a one world bank) I know that some of you will be mad at what you are about to read. That’s OK. I don’t mind. Now is the time to prepare for what may be some very difficult living conditi [...]

Hijacking the Declaration in Defense of Abortion and Atheism

Hijacking the Declaration in Defense of Abortion and Atheism

Vice President Kamala Harris loves abortion. She and many more like her believe it’s a political sacrament, a religious rite that’s necessary to “save democracy” by killing off the future. It makes perfect sense if you are a self-absorbed secularist which she is. Her latest manipulation to give gravitas to her views is an appeal to the Declaration of Independence. On the 50th anniversary of the Ro [...]

Are Only Laws Repeated in the NT Applicable?

Are Only Laws Repeated in the NT Applicable?

(This is Part Two. Part One is here.) For many dispensationalists and now some preterists, law in the Old Testament is “Jewish law.” In Dallas Theological Seminary’s scholarly journal, Bibliotheca Sacra, S. Lewis Johnson, a former professor at the seminary, argued that the Ten Commandments should not be a part of the Christian’s ethical life. He wrote the following: Donald Grey Barnhouse, a giant [...]

Are Christians Exempt from Keeping the Ten Commandments?

Are Christians Exempt from Keeping the Ten Commandments?

The Ten Commandments are under attack, and not only by religious skeptics like Ted Turner who at the National Press Association in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1988, said the following: “We’re living with outmoded rules. The rules we’re living under [are] the Ten Commandments, and I bet nobody here even pays much attention to ’em, because they are too old. When Moses went up on the mountain, there were no [...]

Robots Prove Something-From-Nothing Evolution is Not Science

Robots Prove Something-From-Nothing Evolution is Not Science

Robots are everywhere. We’re not at the I, Robot stage of development, but robots are here to stay. Automobile manufacturing today is a far cry from Henry Ford’s assembly line of production that revolutionized the industry and made cars more affordable. Their production facilities (below) are like a scene from the 2002 film Minority Report: Boston Dynamics has released two videos that show robots [...]

Will the United States Succumb to “Secular Fundamentalism”?

Will the United States Succumb to “Secular Fundamentalism”?

Will America suffer the same fate as Europe and the rise of what Karen Armstrong calls “secular fundamentalism”? We seem to be headed in a similar direction with the secularization of our schools, courts, media, and politics. Christianity in America, like Christianity in Europe, is under attack. We see it every day. Judges are being scrutinized for their religious beliefs, especially on abortion, [...]

Population Bomb False Prophet Still a Media Favorite

Population Bomb False Prophet Still a Media Favorite

Paul Ehrlich was interviewed by CBS’ 60 Minutes for its opening 2023 broadcast. Do the people at 60 Minutes vet the people they interview, especially those who claim to be authorities on a particular subject? The thing is, not a single prediction of Ehrlich’s since 1968 has come true. Ehrlich is a biologist and professor emeritus of population studies at Stanford University, a member of the Americ [...]

More Comments About "Morons" and "Idiots"

More Comments About "Morons" and "Idiots"

In a response to my article “Of ‘Morons’ and ‘Idiots’” Lance Conley claimed that I believe that the word kosmos in passages like Matthew 4:8, 14; 13:35; 16:26 refer solely to the Roman Empire. This is absurd. Lance Conley’s work cannot be trusted. I have never said kosmos only refers to the Roman Empire. Not once in ten books dealing with Bible prophecy and countless articles have I ever mad [...]

Of "Morons" and "Idiots"

Of "Morons" and "Idiots"

Facebook is not the place to find the best information and/or rebuttals to biblical content. The same can be true of the Internet in general. Here’s one I found interesting. When someone like the following person engages in personal attacks, be on your guard. You are about to be thrown a pile of theological manure passed off as food for thought. The following is so bad that I believe it’s necessar [...]

Thank You for Your Support!

Thank You for Your Support!

Dear American Vision Family, American Vision has had a great year, thanks to all of you! When I returned to American Vision about three years ago, we were in dire straits. Our inventory was sold off at discount prices to stay solvent. Things looked bleak. Praise God, we’ve had a marvelous turnaround. While there are some books still out of print, we continue to produce new material. Last year we f [...]

How Leftists Turn the Christmas Story into a Political Nightmare

How Leftists Turn the Christmas Story into a Political Nightmare

Please consider a year-end donation to keep articles like this one coming in 2023. Every Christmas liberals have tried to make the Christmas story about some Leftist program. Leftists have little regard for the Bible unless it can be used to scold Christians for judging righteously (Matt. 7:1-2; John 7:24) and supporting socialism based on voluntary giving (Acts 2:42-45; 4:32-35). In the same brea [...]

Still Asking the Question: By What Standard?

Still Asking the Question: By What Standard?

As we get deeper into the reasons for our collapsing culture where evil has become good and good evil, the question remains, “How shall we then live and by what standard?” Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isa. 5:20). That “woe” is very important. In God’s eyes, moral acti [...]

The Dominion Mandate v. Romantic Revolutionaries

The Dominion Mandate v. Romantic Revolutionaries

This is Part Two. The first part can be read here. Discussions about “dominion” have taken a wild turn. Dominion theology is equated to something called ‘Christian Nationalism.’ Here’s one example: “With a burgeoning interest in the idea of Christian Nationalism, the Christian Church in America has seen a renewed interest in modified versions of theonomy.” If “modified versions of theonomy” are op [...]

Does the Church Win by Losing?

Does the Church Win by Losing?

Professor Richard Gaffin said: “The church wins by losing.” In a similar vein, John MacArthur said, “We lose down here.” What is the result of such thinking? What would have become of our world if the early Christians had acted on the theme of losing? Some recent history might help: About 3,000 of the approximately 18,000 Protestant pastors in Germany in the 1930s openly supported Adolf Hitler, an [...]

Are Christmas Trees Pagan?

Are Christmas Trees Pagan?

Critics of Christmas need not reply. Every Christmas there is the inevitable talk about a “war on Christmas.” Not all opposition comes from secularists, atheists, and Muslims. Some Christians believe the Bible does not set aside the birth of Jesus as a special calendar day to honor His birth because such a celebration violates the “regulative principle of worship.” Others believe Christmas has a p [...]

Crimes Against the Laws of all Civilized and Christian Countries

Crimes Against the Laws of all Civilized and Christian Countries

Twelve immoral and insane Republicans voted with the always immoral Democrats (pro-killing unborn children, supporting genital mutilation of children, and defending an array of gender definitions and the courts to enforce them) to protect same-sex marriage and everything associated with it. We’re already seeing the implications of legalized immorality in the way bakers, web designers, and photogra [...]

How Is Your Bible Constructed?

How Is Your Bible Constructed?

While I was a student at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi, I was also the Assistant Manager of the bookstore. The bookstore afforded me the opportunity to learn about books, not only the authors and their content but their construction. Books from Great Britain had the best bindings. Hardback books published by the Banner of Truth Trust were beautifully designed. Older works f [...]

Students From Denmark Ask Me LGBTQ+ Questions

Students From Denmark Ask Me LGBTQ+ Questions

I received the following from three high school girls who go to school in Denmark about a school project they were working on. “The answers will be used in the presentation and nothing else, we will not be using it for social media or anything else…. We got your number from ‘the American vision’ and then under ‘contact us’ your mail was there and then we just wrote to you.” [...]

Giving Thanks For "The Many signal Favors of Almighty God"

Giving Thanks For "The Many signal Favors of Almighty God"

On Thursday, September 24, 1789, the first House of Representatives voted to recommend—in its exact wording—the First Amendment of the newly drafted Constitution to the states for ratification. The next day, Congressman Elias Boudinot from New Jersey proposed that the House and Senate jointly request of President Washington to proclaim a day of thanksgiving for “the many signal favors of Almighty [...]

Thanksgiving’s Critics Come Out of the Woodwork

Thanksgiving’s Critics Come Out of the Woodwork

The usual dissenters come out of the woodwork every October to denounce Christopher Columbus and November to attack Thanksgiving. Here’s one from 2020: Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) is being called “a racist piece of trash” and a “white supremacist” after defending the legacy of the Mayflower Compact and criticizing an article in the New York Times that called the story of the Pilgrims a “myth” and re- [...]
