How Differences in the Gospel Accounts Support the Bible’s Integrity

An article written by someone named Lynda O, who describes herself as “Christian, Calvinist, Premillennial, Dispensational, and a Biblical Creationist,” is not a preterist. She does not believe that the Olivet Discourse describes events leading up to and including the destruction of Jerusalem that took place in A.D. 70. One of her arguments is there […]

When Prophecy Books Go Bad

“The single best-selling nonfiction book of the 1970s was not The Joy of Sex or even The Joy of Cooking; it was Hal Lindsey’s The Late Great Planet Earth.” [1] It was declared by the New York Times to be the “no. 1 non-fiction bestseller of the decade.” [2] Estimates put sales at more than […]

The Christian’s Lot in Life is to be “Oppressed and Disenfranchised”

The following article is a follow-up to "Are Lobbying, Rallying Voters, Organizing Protests, and Harnessing the Evangelical Movement UnChristian?," a response to Phil Johnson's "Salt of the Earth" article that was published in the January 2012 issue of Tabletalk magazine.

Are Lobbying, Rallying Voters, Organizing Protests, and Harnessing the Evangelical Movement UnChristian?

There is a reason we call the revelation given to us from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22 the “Bible.” The Greek word biblos (βίβλος) — from which we get the English word Bible — means “book.” The Bible is one book even though it has 66 (39 + 27) individual parts. No single verse can […]

Liberal says Jesus Wants Government to 'Forgive' Student Debts

Let’s get something straight. The only money that government has, it takes from people who work for a living. The only money government has to lend, it took from you and me. In a way, when these student loans are paid back, the money should go back to the people who had their money taken […]

American Pulpits and Politics: The Hope of Our Nation

While driving to Charlotte, North Carolina, I heard Pastor John MacArthur encourage Christians to vote. It wasn’t that long ago that he left the impression in his book Why Government Can’t Save You [1] that Christians should resist putting too much emphasis on politics. I was glad to hear him take a more active role […]

Exposing the Real Last Days Scoffers

To scoff or not to scoff. Is that the question? It’s not. The question is: What were the scoffers scoffing at? Futurists insist that Peter is critical of those who were scoffing that the physical coming of Jesus had not occurred as promised (2 Peter 3–18). The simple fact is that the New Testament writers, […]

Liberal Theologian Says “It’s not ‘class warfare,’ it’s Christianity”

I was wondering when liberals were going to bring Jesus into the discussion about taxing the rich. Christians are labeled ‘theocrats’ and ‘dominionists’ when they quote the Bible, but when a liberal appeals to Jesus she’s being compassionate. The latest is an article written by Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite who is a professor at the mostly […]

Jesus Already Stood on the Mount of Olives

The following question was asked of Dave Hunt on his Berean Call website: Question: You have criticized preterism and amillennial teaching as being unbiblical, but teachers such as R. C. Sproul present what clearly are reasoned conclusions for their positions. What do you say? Since 1988 I have been responding to the prophetic views of […]

Bible Prophecy Discussion

Harold Camping was proved a false prophet (again) when his May 21, 2011 end-of-the-world predictions did not come to fruition. This didn't stop Camping however, he simply moved his date, and it hasn't stopped other prophetic speculators from getting in on the action. This edition of Vantage Point is the third and final part, of a three part panel discussion on Bible prophecy that aired on a local television station, and features several different viewpoints.
