Face Mask Laws are Designed to Make Us Compliant for More laws

Everywhere you go, people are dutifully wearing face masks. I was in Idaho over the weekend. I saw a woman wearing a face mask while riding a bike with not a soul anywhere near her. I’ve seen people wearing a face mask while driving. Joe Biden has called for all governors to mandate mask wearing […]

What Atheists Refuse to Admit

All worldviews are by definition belief systems, even atheism. Since we are all limited in knowledge and restrained by our inability to be everywhere (omnipresence) and know everything (omniscience), an atheist puts forth his claim that God does not exist in terms of a faith commitment. When the late Carl Sagan wrote “The cosmos is […]

NO APOLOGIES, PLEASE

We've come to the point in our nation's history where the battle lines have been drawn. As always, it comes down to two operating propositions: God's Law or Chaos. The time is long past time for Christians to understand how to approach the worldview war and put on the full armor of God for the […]

The Irony of Bible-Burning on Behalf of BLM

If the Bible had been followed, we never would have had chattel slavery in the United States: "He who kidnaps a man, whether he sells him or he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death" (Ex. 21:16; also 1 Tim. 1:19; Rev. 18:13). _____________________________ Bible-burning on the streets of Portland may […]

When Did Jesus 'Come on the Clouds of Heaven'?

This is the fourth and final installment in this series (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). In Luke 21:20 we find a similar audience reference: “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that her desolation is at hand.” Many prophecy writers who claim that Matthew 24 is about a yet future coming argue […]

Exegetical Gerrymandering to Overcome the Obvious

This is the third part of my series on the use of the second person plural in Matthew 24 (Part 1 and Part 2). Preterists aren’t the only ones who identify the use of the second person plural as indicative of a first-century fulfillment. Anyone reading the passage for the first time would conclude that […]

“His blood shall be on us and on our children!”

Part Two For Part One of this series read "The Use of the Second Person Plural ('You') in Matthew 24," a response to an upcoming debate between Brock Hollett and Sam Frost on whether the abomination of desolation mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 24:15 is fulfilled prophecy or yet to be fulfilled. For a study […]

The Use of the Second Person Plural (“You”) in Matthew 24

While doing my daily stroll down Facebook lane, I came across an advertisement for a debate on the timing of the “abomination of desolation” (Matt. 24:15) between two former full preterists. Brock Hollett has jumped the shark and rejected even a partial preterist position and adopted a form of premillennialism while arguing like a dispensationalist […]

Yes, Even George Washington Can Be Redeemed

First published by the History News Network. George Washington was a slaveholder.  For some Americans, this is reason enough to exclude our first president from the national pantheon.  According to one poll, 18 percent of respondents believe he should be removed from Mount Rushmore. Others expressed themselves by defacing or toppling Washington statues. Are these critics right?  On the surface, […]

The Attack on Christ in Modern America

With violence in the streets of many of our most prominent cities, there is an underlying subtheme that is also troubling. Christophobia, which attacks anything Christian, is surely on the march. Perhaps the latest example is the burning of Bibles in recent Portland protests. On 8/2/20, Washington Examiner noted, “Portland protesters were filmed burning Bibles […]

Rocking the Foundation of Opposing Worldviews

In the 1950s, the John C. Winston Company, later to become part of Holt, Rinehart and Winston, published “Adventures in Science Fiction,” a series of juvenile hardcover novels that made up a collection of thirty-six books. Some of the world’s greatest science fiction writers got their start with the series: Arthur C. Clarke, best known […]

What Forced Equality Might Look Like: Think 'Facial Justice'

The last thing young people want to hear from their elders is, “Well, in my day. . .” Even so, it needs to be said that any young person today who needs a “safe space,” crying room, and canceled classes because of some bit of bad news needs to grow up. If there’s no crying in baseball, there’s […]
