Stealing in the Name of the People is Still Theft

“You shall not steal” is a fundamental biblical commandment that’s found in both Testaments (Ex. 20:15; 21:16; Lev. 19:11, 13; Matt. 19:18; Rom. 13:9). If property is theft, as one Christian stated on his Facebook page, then every person in the world is a thief because everyone owns something. If property is theft and civil […]

Audience Relevance, the Time Texts, and Bible Prophecy

I have been looking into prophecy books that deal with the history of prophetic interpretation. Dispensationalists are trying to claim that the “rapture” and dispensationalism (it’s the “ism” that makes a difference) had a long history before John Nelson Darby. You can read some of my articles on the subject here and here. One odd […]

Today’s Virus Scare is Not a Sign of the End or Anything Near a True Pandemic

Is the current virus pandemic a sign that we are living in the last days, a fulfillment of Bible prophecy? We encounter such pandemics every year. Tens of thousands of people die as a result. None of them, however, compare with plagues of the past: 1. Two historic plagues ravaged the Roman Empire: the Antonine […]

Thomas Paine and His Reliance on the Bible

In yesterday’s article at, I mentioned an episode of CrossPolitic Studios’ interview with Andrew L. Seidel from the Freedom From Religion Foundation about his book The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American. In several articles, Seidel shows that he’s a fan of Thomas Paine. But which Thomas Paine? Thomas Paine is often singled out as America’s […]

A Brief Response to ‘The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American’

I was listening to CrossPolitic Studios last night and their interview with Andrew L. Seidel from the Freedom From Religion Foundation about his book The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American. Seidel is an atheist, so not only must he demythologize Christianity, he must demythologize all references to religion in our nation’s founding, and that […]

Is the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Found Before the 19th Century?

I’ve been corresponding with some dispensationalists on Facebook on the topic of the rapture. There are several people who claim that dispensationalism, mostly the pretrib rapture, has some historical precedent before John Nelson Darby. I don’t have enough access to historical sources to do the necessary research, so I am dependent on what other dispensationalists […]

Dr. Greg Bahnsen’s New Book ‘Against All Opposition’ Is Nearly Complete

“We must not be satisfied to present Christianity as the most reliable position to hold among the competing options available. Rather, the Christian faith is the only reasonable outlook available to men.” ― Greg L. Bahnsen, Presuppositional Apologetics: Stated and Defended. In February 1973, Jesus Christ redeemed me in a darkly lit pub in Ann […]

Can Satan and His Followers Perform Miracles?

Christian commentators often turn to the story of Moses and Aaron and their encounters with the magicians of Egypt as evidence that demonic miracles are real and can rival God’s miraculous works. If miracles are a way to demonstrate God’s power and authority over the created order, then “if something or someone other than God […]

Dispensationalist Charges William Lane Craig with ‘Willful Ignorance’ on the Rapture

While doing my daily trek through Facebook looking for relevant news stories, I came across a post with a link to an article with this title: “The Willful Ignorance of William Lane Craig.” The author of the article takes Dr. Craig to task for his comments on the historicity of the rapture in his short […]

It’s A Wonderful Movie in a Political Year

Politics can be tiring. I need a rest from it, but it can never be escaped. In reality, politics cannot do what most people believe it can do, and when politics tries to do the things that it was never designed to do, it makes things worse. If you want the world to change, it […]

Spreading Disease and Panic to Create a Revolution

You’re familiar with the adage, “Do not shout ‘fire’ in a crowded theater.” It also applies to a virus outbreak. A communicable disease has been weaponized for political gain when the real disease is human autonomy that causes many more deaths. A Denver city councilwoman wrote the unthinkable: A Denver city councilwoman appeared to cheer […]

Some of the Needed First Steps When Debating

Modern evolutionary theory has been formulated against the backdrop of existing highly developed biological diversity. Evolutionists work backwards, presupposing naturalism and materialism, looking for a mechanism to account for what they see. They don’t begin with the evidence; the evidence, such as it is, is forced to fit into an already structured materialistic paradigm. The […]
