Is Our Latest Kerfuffle With Iran A Prophetic Sign of the Last Days?

Several articles claim that “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was the main force that pushed Trump into assassinating Iranian Major General Soleimani” because of his belief in the “rapture.” The articles often quote the following comment Pompeo made at a “God and Country Rally” on June 28, 2015. Note the ellipsis: We will continue to […]

Democracy Will Not Save the Islamic World

The Middle East will never be made right by force. Competing Islamic groups often gain the trust of the United States only to turn on their benefactors once their sworn Islamic enemies are vanquished with the help of the US military. It happened when our embassy in Iraq was overrun by Iranian Muslims. Who helped […]

Timing Issues in the Olivet Discourse

I saw a post on Facebook related to the timing of prophetic events based on Jesus’ pronouncement to some of the disciples about the destruction of the temple (Matt. 24:1-2) and the judgment on Jerusalem that was to take place before their generation passed away (Luke 21:32). And [Jesus] said, “See that you are not […]

Jesus, the Bible, and Self-Defense in Light of Armed Church Members

  In September of 2019, Joe Biden criticized a new Texas law that permitted church members to be armed while attending church services. It is irrational, with all due respect to the Governor of Texas, it’s irrational what they’re doing. … And we’re talking about loosening access to have guns? Being able to take them […]

Atheists Keep Getting More Consistent, Less Rational, and Hopeless

  Marvin Olasky has a brief review of Michael Ruse’s new book A Meaning to Life. Don’t be fooled by the title, since according to Ruse there is no meaning to life Michael Ruse’s A Meaning to Life (Oxford, 2019) begins with atheistic honesty: “You are born. You live. Then you die. If you don’t think so, […]

I’m Waiting for Christianity Today to Evaluate the Democrats by the Ten Commandments

  Mark Galli, an editor at Christianity Today, wrote the following about Pres. Trump in an article that took the internet by storm and received hundreds of responses by evangelical writers, including me: That [Trump] should be removed, we believe, is not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten […]

The First Church of Christian Gnosticism

  Many Christians believe and teach a form of factual neutrality where some subjects, for example, science, geography, politics, mathematics, can and should be taught without any regard to religion since “facts speak for themselves.” This is most evident in education where a self-conscious sacred-secular divide is maintained and supported by Christians. Ninety percent of […]

Join the AV support team!

From the desk of Gary DeMar: 2019 has turned out to be a great year for American Vision. We’ve been busier than ever. That’s a good thing. I spoke with a friend this week who told me that he’s been seeing AV’s material everywhere. There’s a great deal of cross-pollination going on with other ministries. […]

‘Public Goods’ and The Welfare Trap

  Congress’s new crop of socialist representatives who have never owned a business and have absolutely no knowledge of how an economy works could make permanent economic policies that could destroy the productive base of the United States. For example: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s promise to boost federal funding for social programs should not be considered “free stuff,” […]

Eschatological Pessimism With a Rapture Kicker

  Christian social irrelevancy manifests itself in several ways even while claiming to be fully biblical. There are those who believe the church is an earthly parenthesis—the “church age” to give its proper designation—and the world is destined for an inevitable eschatological showdown with the antichrist but only before the church is “raptured” out of […]

  Traducido al español por Pedro Camino con permiso del autor. No solemos pensar en la Navidad como un evento político. Le puedo asegurar que Herodes el Grande sí lo pensó de esa manera, así como también Roma. Hubo un impuesto involucrado en dicho evento (Lucas 2:1). Herodes no habría estado tan preocupado por el  […]

How We Got Into This Mess

  The latest dustup over Pres. Trump by the editor at Christianity Today magazine has a long history. It didn’t start with Trump in 2016. As the song “A Change Is Gonna Come” goes, “It’s been a long time coming.” There are many reasons for it. Here’s one consideration: In terms of Christian theory, privatization […]
