The Dangers of “Sexxx Ed”

Because of the virus, there is a current debate between opening up the schools or only using online instruction. Online instruction allows parents to hear what is being taught to their children. But that has some liberals up at arms because they want to teach a more radical curriculum than most parents would wish.  Perhaps […]

‘Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn’

In The Dark Knight (2008) Batman meets up with his most diabolical enemy—the Joker, played fiendishly by the late Heath Ledger. There’s nothing funny about Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker. It’s not Jack Nicholson’s clownish Joker. This Joker is psychotic. Or is he? Alfred warns Bruce Wayne that the Joker is no ordinary criminal. Neither […]

Does this Biblical Story Apply to Today’s Churches and Government Shutdowns?

There is always the danger of jurisdictional usurpation when civil government removes the jurisdictional boundaries and enters the domain of the Church. The Bible cites several examples of how the king sought to overrule the authority and jurisdiction of the Church. King Saul assumed the duties of the priests when he offered sacrifices. He stepped […]

Darwinism’s Dirty Little Secret

A review of Garry Wills’ Under God: Religion and American Politics carries the argument further. The reviewer is Mark A. Noll. There is much in Noll’s review that’s helpful, but his assessment of Wills’ evaluation of the 1925 Scope’s Trial was especially intriguing. Wills thinks that ... later anti-evolutionists [i.e., Creation Scientists], because they shifted […]

Face Mask Laws are Designed to Make Us Compliant for More laws

Everywhere you go, people are dutifully wearing face masks. I was in Idaho over the weekend. I saw a woman wearing a face mask while riding a bike with not a soul anywhere near her. I’ve seen people wearing a face mask while driving. Joe Biden has called for all governors to mandate mask wearing […]

What Atheists Refuse to Admit

All worldviews are by definition belief systems, even atheism. Since we are all limited in knowledge and restrained by our inability to be everywhere (omnipresence) and know everything (omniscience), an atheist puts forth his claim that God does not exist in terms of a faith commitment. When the late Carl Sagan wrote “The cosmos is […]

NO APOLOGIES, PLEASE

We've come to the point in our nation's history where the battle lines have been drawn. As always, it comes down to two operating propositions: God's Law or Chaos. The time is long past time for Christians to understand how to approach the worldview war and put on the full armor of God for the […]

The Irony of Bible-Burning on Behalf of BLM

If the Bible had been followed, we never would have had chattel slavery in the United States: "He who kidnaps a man, whether he sells him or he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death" (Ex. 21:16; also 1 Tim. 1:19; Rev. 18:13). _____________________________ Bible-burning on the streets of Portland may […]

When Did Jesus 'Come on the Clouds of Heaven'?

This is the fourth and final installment in this series (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). In Luke 21:20 we find a similar audience reference: “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that her desolation is at hand.” Many prophecy writers who claim that Matthew 24 is about a yet future coming argue […]

Exegetical Gerrymandering to Overcome the Obvious

This is the third part of my series on the use of the second person plural in Matthew 24 (Part 1 and Part 2). Preterists aren’t the only ones who identify the use of the second person plural as indicative of a first-century fulfillment. Anyone reading the passage for the first time would conclude that […]

“His blood shall be on us and on our children!”

Part Two For Part One of this series read "The Use of the Second Person Plural ('You') in Matthew 24," a response to an upcoming debate between Brock Hollett and Sam Frost on whether the abomination of desolation mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 24:15 is fulfilled prophecy or yet to be fulfilled. For a study […]

The Use of the Second Person Plural (“You”) in Matthew 24

While doing my daily stroll down Facebook lane, I came across an advertisement for a debate on the timing of the “abomination of desolation” (Matt. 24:15) between two former full preterists. Brock Hollett has jumped the shark and rejected even a partial preterist position and adopted a form of premillennialism while arguing like a dispensationalist […]
