Bones That Started a Reformation

England had a head start on the Reformation because of the work of John Wycliffe (c. 1324–1384). It was Wycliffe who held that the Bible alone (sola Scriptura) set forth the definition of true Christianity. Wycliffe’s efforts to translate the Bible into the language of the people prepared the way for a reform movement that […]

The Christmas Story is Not about a Homeless Couple

With Congress wrangling over amnesty for illegal aliens, the budget, taxes, earmarks, and the extension of unemployment benefits, it won’t be long before we hear liberals telling conservatives how unchristian they are for not voting for more government aid to help the poor. And they will appeal to the Bible in an attempt to make […]

Testing the Prophets (Again)

As this millennial decade comes to an end and North Korea is rattling its military sword, popular Christian writers will reach into their prophecy bags, appeal to the Bible, and tell us that the end is near. The more judicious ones don’t come right out and say Jesus’ coming will take place in “our generation”; […]

The Historical Revisionists are on the War Path

At the Baptist General Association of Virginia’s Nov. 9-10, 2010 annual meeting in Hampton, Virginia, the participants “adopted a resolution decrying versions of American history that minimize or deny the role of church-state separation and encouraging diligence in correcting mistaken historical accounts.” The resolution, which was passed by a wide margin, considers it “‘a threat […]

America's Religious Identity Crisis

With a title like The Myth of a Christian Nation, one would think that the author would have spent more time on the nuances of how the phrase “Christian Nation” is used by people like John Eidsmoe, David Barton, and other scholars writing on the subject. If you’re going to critique a concept, it’s necessary […]

The Second Generation of Faithfulness

Prior to the Israelites’ conquest of the city of Jericho, a very significant event takes place that is often overlooked. Unlike most ancient literature, the Bible records details and events that can be seemingly unrelated to the overall narrative. For example, how many Christians have been sidelined in their attempts to read the entire Bible […]

The Story of Scripture

Within the Emerging church movement (and to a lesser degree outside of it) you will often hear the word “narrative” being thrown around. Most Christians tend to get a bit uncomfortable when you refer to the Bible as a “story.” When they hear the word they automatically think of it in the negative sense, as […]

[The following is an excerpt from John Calvin's sermon on Deuteronomy 28:1-2, given on Tuesday, March 10, 1556, as found in The Covenant Enforced (Tyler, TX: ICE, 1990), 84-94.] “If you will hear the voice of the Lord your God, and be careful to fulfill all the commandments I command you this day, all these blessings […]

July Fourth Special Show

American Vision stands on the shoulders of those who have gone before us, to restore America's biblical foundation by educating and equipping Christians to apply a biblical worldview to every aspect of life. Some dismiss these values, and the faith of our founding fathers, as fleeting and archaic. But we know that we owe all […]

It Might be Time to Sue Some Government Officials "In the Year of Our Lord" 2010

“Seniors at a New Haven, Conn., high school will not be graduating ‘in the year of our Lord’ this year–or any future years, according to the superintendent of schools.” Fox News reported this story. It’s similar to one that was reported a few months ago when a Muslim student at Trinity University in San Antonio […]

Listen to this interview with Gary DeMar conducted by Dr. Michael Brown. It's obvious that Dr. Brown did his homework.
