Taking Dominion of the Earth

Taking Dominion of the Earth

Gary discusses the concept of dominion and what it means For centuries Christians were seen as a threat by those who claim the state as the only true sovereign: “These men who have upset the world have come here also; and Jason has welcomed them, and they all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus” (Acts 17:6-7). Whoever claims sovereignty expects his subje [...]

The Nation’s Pillars are Falling on Us

The Nation’s Pillars are Falling on Us

There’s word that Taylor Swift could affect the 2024 election (Biden is looking to her for help), the courts are out of control (crazy New York judges and juries are examples), and the people who take an oath to uphold the Constitution don’t know what it says, what it means, or how it applies. It’s not only Swift who could impact the election. Trump’s rape accuser says she will “do everything I ca [...]

Turning the World Upside Down

Turning the World Upside Down

Gary discusses the Christian worldview, how we got where we are today, and how we get back to being world-changers on today’s podcast. Christians are not told to take up arms to defend or advance the Christian faith. We are engaged in a war of ideas. The biblical image of war is designed to remind us that defending the faith is serious business (Acts 7:54-60; 12:2). We should not shy away fr [...]

Hamas and the Red Heifer

Hamas and the Red Heifer

Gary discusses an article that makes the claim that Hamas attacked Israel in order to stop the sacrifice of the “red heifer.” Remember how Jesus had described the temple to the Jews as “your house” and how it would be left to them “desolate” (Matt. 23:38). Earlier Jesus had inspected the temple (21:12-17). There He called it “My house” (21:13) and cited two passages from the Old Testam [...]

Biblical Dominion Comes by Obedience and Service

Biblical Dominion Comes by Obedience and Service

Leftist dominionists believe in “rendering all to a Caesar.” The State is their god so long as they are controlling the reins of power. They become the new gods. Consider the following dominionist worldview from atheist, homosexual, and globalist Yuval Noah Harari that globalist elites are operating under: Human rights are just like heaven and God. It’s just a fictional story that we’ve invented t [...]

They Always Fail

They Always Fail

Gary discusses three recent items that address the ideas of the intellectual “elites” who believe they know how to understand and fix the world. The long-term consequences of brains, bodies, and babies are that in the end we are nothing more than meat machines that have no intrinsic value. If this is so, and science tells us it is so, then in the future there will never be a valid mora [...]

Dominion: An Inescapable Concept

Dominion: An Inescapable Concept

Discussions about “dominion” have taken a wild turn. Dominion theology is equated with something called ‘Christian Nationalism.’ Here’s one example: “With a burgeoning interest in the idea of Christian Nationalism, the Christian Church in America has seen a renewed interest in modified versions of theonomy.” If “modified versions of theonomy” are operating, it might be best to get an accurate desc [...]

The Voices of Underground Media

The Voices of Underground Media

Gary comments on a few recent video clips where leftist narratives are being exposed and challenged. There’s a difference between believing something and being able to justify that belief. I believe certain things about the health of the human body. But if you were to push hard, you would find that I don’t have enough information to be able to justify all the beliefs that I have. In many cases, I [...]

The Organic Truth Behind Artificial Intelligence

The Organic Truth Behind Artificial Intelligence

Gary answers a listener question about the uses and abuses of Artificial Intelligence. With the advent of the computer, materialists believe they have found the perfect scientific mechanism to demonstrate that the notion of a mind has been concocted out of primitive religious assumptions. Since religion is mythological, so is the mind. “The machinists’ model of consciousness is the computer; they [...]

How is it Possible to “Only Preach the Gospel”?

How is it Possible to “Only Preach the Gospel”?

Ed Dingess responded to my article “Jesus Has Not Called Us to be Doormats” with “Gary DeMar: A Response to Christian Doormats.” He dislikes my claim that there is a link between someone coming to Christ—being born again—and applying the changed life brought on by the gospel to worldview areas like medicine, education, politics, economics, and every other area of life. The claim is often made that [...]

The Current Political Mood in America

The Current Political Mood in America

Gary discusses an article by Wayne Grudem about 10 reasons to vote for Ron DeSantis over Donald Trump. As Bible-believing Christians we must always remember that when we speak of authority, we mean more than civil authority. In addition, we must recognize and insist that these governors are bound by God’s commandments in their jurisdictional duties. As we are required to submit, they also are boun [...]

The Unhappy Condition of Being “Free From the Law”

The Unhappy Condition of Being “Free From the Law”

One of the biggest issues in our day is the often-repeated refrain in the Christian world “By What Standard?” Next to eschatology, how should we live and by what standard we should live come up all the time. It’s become a big debate among preterists who have adopted something of a dispensational view of biblical ethics. Like dispensationalists, moral precepts found in the Old Testament, especially [...]

The New World and the Regeneration

The New World and the Regeneration

Is Jesus on His throne now? If so, are we in the “new world”? Matthew is traditionally the first of the Gospels. In my opinion, as I argue below, the tradition is correct. Matthew was one of the disciples and was a man of letters. Who better to take notes during Jesus’ lifetime? Moreover, immediately after Pentecost there would have been a demand for a book containing the teaching and [...]

We're Doomed Without Christianity

We're Doomed Without Christianity

Gary talks about recent comments from Elon Musk and an English rapper named Zuby. Unbelief leads to the destruction of every department of the university. But consider, more broadly, the modern university itself. Not only is there cancer growing in every department intellectually, but the university as a whole has no center, no unity. Originally, the university was called the uni-versity because s [...]

So-Called Science Speaks: “Our Universe Arose from Precisely Nothing”

So-Called Science Speaks: “Our Universe Arose from Precisely Nothing”

Lawrence M. Krauss is a renowned cosmologist and professor at the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University. He is the author of numerous articles and books, including the best-selling The Physics of Star Trek and A Universe from Nothing that includes an Afterword from atheist provocateur Richard Dawkins. Krauss is an outspoken atheist, evolutionist, and anti-Christian. The [...]

Satanic Morality

Satanic Morality

Gary discusses a recent question answered by Vivek Ramaswamy about the American government “propping up” Christianity and Christian Nationalism. Professor Stone is correct that there were traditional Christians and deists among the Founders. “Around the time of the American Revolution,” Robert Royal, president of the Faith and Reason Institute, writes that “a significant minority of th [...]

Does Isaiah 13 Predict the ‘End of the World’?

Does Isaiah 13 Predict the ‘End of the World’?

An image of Isaiah 13 from the Bible with some highlighted verses was posted on Facebook followed by a comment that stated that “the wrath of God is coming on the world,” that is, our world that was 2700 years in the future from the time the prophecy was given to Isaiah. Of course, God hasn’t stopped with judging the world when He sent Israel and Judah into captivity or with Babylon, the Medes and [...]

Get Out the Atheist Vote

Get Out the Atheist Vote

Gary discusses a recent call by some atheists to get out to the polls and vote in 2024 to prevent Christian Nationalists from winning. Atheism is a dark and bleak world. It offers no meaning or ultimate purpose. It is the dead end of all dead ends. R.C. Sproul has written, “the existence of God is the supreme proto-supposition for all theoretical thought. God’s existence is the chief element in co [...]

The Continuing Debate Over God's Law

The Continuing Debate Over God's Law

Gary continues his discussion of the confusion over how God’s law should be understood and applied in modern times. The righteousness and perfection toward which the “commandments” of “the Law and the Prophets” (Matt. 5:17-19) guide us was identified by Jesus when He said, “you shall therefore be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect” (v. 48). God is [...]

Don’t Yearn for the ‘Good Old Days’ Because They Weren’t that Good

Don’t Yearn for the ‘Good Old Days’ Because They Weren’t that Good

“In 1905, a Vermont doctor and his chauffeur were the first to successfully drive a car across the country from San Francisco to New York. It took them 63 days. Today you can fly cross country in a matter of hours while using wireless Internet.” — David Bahnsen It’s 2024 and to the surprise of many, we’re still here. We don’t know what the future will bring. With that in mind, many people are nost [...]
