Satanic Morality

Satanic Morality

Gary discusses a recent question answered by Vivek Ramaswamy about the American government “propping up” Christianity and Christian Nationalism. Professor Stone is correct that there were traditional Christians and deists among the Founders. “Around the time of the American Revolution,” Robert Royal, president of the Faith and Reason Institute, writes that “a significant minority of th [...]

Does Isaiah 13 Predict the ‘End of the World’?

Does Isaiah 13 Predict the ‘End of the World’?

An image of Isaiah 13 from the Bible with some highlighted verses was posted on Facebook followed by a comment that stated that “the wrath of God is coming on the world,” that is, our world that was 2700 years in the future from the time the prophecy was given to Isaiah. Of course, God hasn’t stopped with judging the world when He sent Israel and Judah into captivity or with Babylon, the Medes and [...]

Don’t Yearn for the ‘Good Old Days’ Because They Weren’t that Good

Don’t Yearn for the ‘Good Old Days’ Because They Weren’t that Good

“In 1905, a Vermont doctor and his chauffeur were the first to successfully drive a car across the country from San Francisco to New York. It took them 63 days. Today you can fly cross country in a matter of hours while using wireless Internet.” — David Bahnsen It’s 2024 and to the surprise of many, we’re still here. We don’t know what the future will bring. With that in mind, many people are nost [...]

Harvard and the Demise of ‘Truth’ in Higher Education

Harvard and the Demise of ‘Truth’ in Higher Education

The battle for America is being fought on two fronts: In the courts and the universities. If these two institutions remain in the hands of liberals, reversing anti-Christian trends will take decades longer. The universities feed the law schools, the law schools corrupt the minds of impressionable law students, and the courts maintain the status quo. Our colonial founders understood that the garden [...]

Are Christmas Trees Pagan Symbols?

Are Christmas Trees Pagan Symbols?

Every Christmas there is the inevitable talk about a “war on Christmas.” Not all opposition comes from secularists, atheists, and Muslims (see here and here). 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.” Acknowledging the birth of Jesus is biblical. Chr [...]

Does ‘X-Mas’ Take ‘Christ’ Out of Christmas?

Does ‘X-Mas’ Take ‘Christ’ Out of Christmas?

Many people get bent out of shape when they see ‘Xmas’ or ‘X-Mas.’ They think it’s a way of removing Jesus Christ from Christmas. Removing Christ from Christmas happens in many direct ways, but X-Mas is not one of them. “Every year you see the signs and the bumper stickers saying, ‘Put Christ back into Christmas’ as a response to this substitution of the letter X for the name of Christ. [...]

Betrayed by Feminism

Betrayed by Feminism

Gary discusses an article written by a woman who regrets pursuing her own goals and fulfillment in the workforce and being single. There is a worldview that seeks to make absolute the things of this world. A different spirit energizes man without God. This is the religion of humanism called secularism. A “secularist” is someone who “is completely time-bound, totally a child of his age, a creature [...]

The “Jesus Was a Refugee” Narrative

The “Jesus Was a Refugee” Narrative

Every Christmas liberals have tried to make the Christmas story about some Leftist program. The Bible is convenient when Leftists and their fellow Democrats want to snooker the religiously naïve public. We’ll see more of it this year because of the border and immigration issues that energize the Democrat Party. Leftists have little regard for the Bible unless it can be used to scold Christians for [...]

This Generation and Brood of Vipers

This Generation and Brood of Vipers

From the archives: Gary answers an interesting question that was submitted to the Michael Heiser podcast several years ago. “This generation” in Matthew 24:34 and the parallel passages in Mark 13 and Luke 21 refers to the generation of Jesus’ day. Following this biblical evidence, most Bible com­mentators have interpreted “this generation” in this way, understanding t [...]

The Enlightenment and Christianity in America

The Enlightenment and Christianity in America

Gary refutes the claim by revisionist historians that America was founded not on Christian principles but on Enlightenment ones. There would not have been an America if Darwin’s evolutionary worldview had been around in 17th and 18th-century America. There would not have been, in the words of the Declaration of Independence, any “inalienable rights” since there would not have been a Creator to end [...]

Naturally, Democrats Want to Abolish the Electoral College

Naturally, Democrats Want to Abolish the Electoral College

You remember Monica Lewinsky. She stated that she had nine sexual encounters with President Bill Clinton in the Oval Office. Her real expertise is coming out as a political analyst. She has written an article advocating for several amendments to the U.S. Constitution. One of her suggestions is to scrap the Electoral College system that’s used to elect the president. “The most fundamental underpinn [...]

The Beast in the Bunker

The Beast in the Bunker

Gary answers a listener question about the “number of the beast,” Nero, and Titus. The number 666 has long fascinated theologians and mathematicians. Maybe the interest in the number has something to do with the attainment of wisdom and understanding since to “calculate the number of the beast” will reward the diligent (Rev. 13:18). Wallace John Steinhope is the physicist in Paul Natha [...]

Studies from the Bunker

Studies from the Bunker

Gary discusses a recent article by a Jesuit priest claiming that Donald Trump is the “antichrist.” Saint Martin of Tours, who died in A.D. 397, wrote of the coming antichrist whose reign would signify the last days. His prediction sounds strangely familiar. “Non est dubium, quin antichristus…. There is no doubt that the antichrist has already been born. Firmly established alread [...]

Israel and the Last Days (Part Two)

Israel and the Last Days (Part Two)

Gary concludes his interview with Paul Edward Stevenson on the Last Man Standing radio show about Israel, Hamas, and popular prophecy. When Jesus’ disciples heard His prediction of “desolation” for the temple and city (Matt. 23:29-39) when He “came out from the temple” (24:1), they “came up to point out the temple buildings to Him,” as if to say, “Lord, You can’t mean this temple that’s adorned wi [...]

Isaiah 66:8 Is Not in Any Way About the Modern State of Israel

Isaiah 66:8 Is Not in Any Way About the Modern State of Israel

In the first article on this topic, I pointed out that a prominent pastor told his congregation and viewing audience the following: “In your Bible, right next to Isaiah 66:8, you can write down May 14, 1948.” It’s obvious that Isaiah 66 describes a time when the sacrificial system was operating (v. 3), the ancient people of Tarshish, Put, Lud, Meshech (the archers, those who draw the bow: Ezek. 27 [...]

Israel and the Last Days (Part One)

Israel and the Last Days (Part One)

Gary is interviewed by Paul Edward Stevenson on the Last Man Standing radio show about Israel, Hamas, and popular prophecy. Part One of Two Without a proper context, a verse from the Bible could be used to support atheism, because as one out-of-context passage reads, “There is no God” (Psalm 14:1). The full reading of a passage in its proper context reveals its true meaning: “The fool has said in [...]

Does Isaiah 66:8 Predict the 1948 Modern State of Israel?

Does Isaiah 66:8 Predict the 1948 Modern State of Israel?

I received an email from a pastor that stated the following: “I keep hearing … that Isaiah 66:8 is fulfilled in modern-day Israel. I have looked at these verses in every way and cannot get that reading even with a dispensational hermeneutic…. Can you tell me how they might see this verse to use it in this way and can you give me some help with what Isaiah is actually saying? [...]

A Terrorist's Letter to America

A Terrorist's Letter to America

A letter written over two decades ago by Osama bin Laden has been making the rounds on social media, especially TikTok, and being used as evidence for the Palestinian side of the Hamas/Israel war. Attempts to appease Islamic Muslim radicals by discounting America’s Christian heritage has a long history. How do we reconcile the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli, which “was negotiated under Washington, ratifie [...]

America's Christian Heritage (Part Two)

America's Christian Heritage (Part Two)

Gary concludes his interview with Rick Welch from The Burros of Berea podcast Elias Boudinot (1740-1821) was a lawyer who served three congressional terms representing New Jersey (1789-1795). He was a delegate to the Continental Congress, served as commissary general of prisoners at the request of George Washington, and presided as President of the Continental Congress from 1782 to 1783, making hi [...]

From Pop-Prophecy to Pop-Culture

Guest article by Robert E. Cruickshank, Jr Daniel E. Harden (Editor) He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord. -The Psalmist[2] Right now, the Church rules the nations of the world. We and we alone have been given power and dominion, and if we don’t like the way things are going, we have only ourselves to blame. [...]
