Experience would deny those interpretations. The founders themselves recognized from their own experience in many of their writings that different men were born into different situations. […]

The Seven-Year Tribulation: Clarifying Tommy Ice’s Clarifications (7)

As I’ve shown in previous articles (they can be referenced here, here, here, here, here, and here), Tommy Ice has not supplied a single verse that supports either a pre-tribulational rapture or a rebuilt temple.

This is the fourth installment of my response to Tommy Ice’s article “Answers and Clarifications for Gary DeMar.” You can reference the other three here, here, and here.

Conflict Resolution Among Christians

How many churches split, not over doctrinal differences, but over personal offenses? What does the Bible say to help us avoid "bit[ing] and devour[ing] one another so that we do not "consume one another"?

Clarifying Tommy Ice's Clarifications

One would think that in 25 years of debates (nine in all) and numerous books and articles by me and other non-dispensationalists that Tommy would get what I believe about eschatology right. A friend sent me […]

Robert Greene's best-selling 'The 48 Laws of Power' re-packages the humanistic Machiavellian philosophy for a new generation, but to what extent has the humanistic philosophy of the Niccolò Machiavelli's 'The Prince' seeped into the Church's orthopraxy? Why do so many Christian ministries which claim to believe in the sovereignty of God seem to put more […]
