Fred the Atheist, the Talmud, and Abortion

Typical of Fred the Atheist, he ignores the details of my answer to his poorly argued explanation of Exodus 21:22–24 (see here) and moves to a different passage of Scripture and an unrelated case. (You can read his comment here. Scroll down.) To add insult to injury, he references the Talmud, which is not Scripture. He did not offer a single rebuttal to the material I presented in my article. Why [...]

Is the Bible Pro-Abortion?

On today’s episode Gary responds to an emailer who argues that the Bible supports abortion. Once again, Gary shoots holes in atheist arguments and Truth wins the day. [...]

Aborting a Bad Argument

For a couple of years, a fellow by the name of Fred Weiss has been sending me noxious emails. I have about 500 of them. He also goes by the name “Boris” and “Boris & Natasha.” No matter what counter evidence is put before him, he dismisses it because, of course, he has an atheistic worldview to defend. “Damn the facts . . . full speed ahead to nihilism.” You can read some of my previous encoun [...]

"Is Gary DeMar a Demon?" Really?

Gary responds to an emailer who accuses him of “demonic teachings”. Using scripture to interpret itself, Gary exposes the emailer’s error and brings truth to light. [...]

The Biblical Doctrine of Restitution

Joseph “Yellow Kid” Weil only cheated “rascals.” Like George C. Scott’s character Mordecai in the “The Flim-Flam Man,” Weil maintained that “You can’t cheat an honest man.” One of his devilishly simple and effective cons was to bring a dog of questionable ancestry into a bar. He would then show the bartender a forged set of pedigree papers and ask him to care for the seemingly prized pooch while h [...]

"Vox Populi, Vox Dei"

“I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’“ Alice said. Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t—till I tell you . . . When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “Which is to be master—that’s all.” ((Lewis Carroll, Th [...]

The Church Needs to Grow Up and Get a Kingdom Life

Another National Day of Prayer has come and gone. Wisconsin U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb put a negative spin on the day by ruling that the practice is unconstitutional. She ruled that “the government has taken sides on a matter that must be left to individual conscience. . . . The government may not use its authority to try to influence an individual’s decision whether and when to pray.” S [...]

Let's Bring Down the Political Gods

Rep. André Carson, an elected official from Indiana’s 7th District, believes that people who are involved in calling this present civil government (both Democrats and Republicans) to account are similar to Islamic terrorists. Here’s an exchange between Washington Times reporter Kerry Pickett and Carson: KERRY PICKET: Do you think the people outside are generally dangerous or no? REP. CARSON: Oh ab [...]

Jennifer Knapp's "Justification" for Homosexuality

Jennifer Knapp is a Christian music artist. Recently she announced that she’s a homosexual. She questioned the authenticity of Bible translations on the issue of homosexuality. She’s not the first to try her hand at this. Here’s a portion of her rationale: The Bible has literally saved my life. I find myself between a rock and a hard place—between the conservative evangelical who uses what most pe [...]

Aliens: An Evolutionist's Worst Nightmare

Stephen Hawking’s brain is trapped in a body that can do little more than sit, and even with this he needs assistance. At 68, he has not slowed down even though he is almost completely paralyzed due to “a neuro-muscular dystrophy,” a degenerative neurological disease that is related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease). His condition has worsened over the years. Even so, th [...]

The Stars Say Nothing About the Future

Are the stars symbolic of Bible stories? Do constellations tell Christians what is going to happen in the future? In fact, where do these ideas that stars tell us anything come from? Gary DeMar deals with all of this and more in today’s show. [...]

The Southern Poverty Law Center Has Lost Its Way

Any time the liberal media want to disparage the right side of the political spectrum, they call on pool of go-to guys and gals to make their case. It’s not news reporting; its ideological position marketing. One of their go-to guys is Mark Potok of the hard-left Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC is in the money raising business for every known and unknown left-wing cause. It has gone from tra [...]

Would there have been a United States without Christianity?

Brooke Allen claims in her article “Our Godless Constitution” that America “was founded not on Christian principles but on Enlightenment ones.” ((Brooke Allen, “Our Godless Constitution,” The Nation (February 21, 2005).)) The Enlightenment is a term used to describe a period in eighteenth-century Europe and America when reason, coupled with advances in science, was declared to be the principal sou [...]

“Righteous Violence”: A Tactic of the Political Left

Soon after Timothy McVeigh bombed the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City in April of 1995, some on the left of the political spectrum blamed “anti-government rhetoric” for the assault. Supposedly “hateful” speech directed at politicians had incited a cadre of “right-wing” extremists to put words into explosive action. Is any of this true? Did angry white males give up on the democr [...]

Muslim Students Want to Take Over Christian College

A group of students at Trinity University in Texas wants the words “in the year of Our Lord” removed from their diplomas. “A diploma is a very personal item, and people want to proudly display it in their offices and homes,” Sidra Qureshi, president of Trinity Diversity Connection, told the Chronicle. “By having the phrase ‘In the Year of Our Lord,’ it is directly referencing Jesus Christ, and not [...]

Trinity University Student Objects to "In the Year of Our Lord"

Trinity University Muslim student objects to “In the Year of Our Lord” on his diploma. Pushing to remove this religious reference, the student is cleverly sliding the issue past Christians that are disengaged from the situation and unaware of the historical significance the phrase has in America’s Christian history. [...]

Michael Newdow gets Neutered

Atheist Michael Newdow has been pestering the courts to rule that the phrases “under God” found in the Pledge of Allegiance and “In God We Trust,” our nation’s national motto, are unconstitutional. The usually liberal Federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals surprisingly ruled against Newdow. The Court wrote: Not every mention of God or religion by our government or at the government’s direction is [...]

Richard Dawkins Has His Morals Standards

There’s got to be something wrong with verbal abuse and name-calling on the forums of atheist Richard Dawkins’ web site. Dawkins doesn’t think other atheists are being good participants on an ethical standard that has no basis. Will Dawkins account for his morality, or keep taking pieces of Christian ethics to make sense of his world (without God) in such a way… that, fran [...]

"Don't Want Morality? Here, Have Some Porn."

A group of student atheists in Texas have made it possible at the school for students to swap their religious “propaganda” — like Bibles, for instance — for pornography. The idea being the this is “Smut for Smut.” Gary has a few words to say about this. [...]

Are Blacks an Endangered Species?

Michael Hirsh, a prominent pro-life activist, joins the show to discuss the effects of abortion on the black community, and the racist beginnings of Planned Parenthood. [...]
