Is Gnosticism Making a Comeback in the Church?

If you want to get a picture of how some Christians understand the nature of their Christian walk, it's what we are experiencing being cut off from the world while others take control of our lives and we are content to be helpless to do anything about it or should do anything about it.Christians should […]

Does the Bible Teach that the Temple Will be Rebuilt?

As usual, I found myself dealing with a prophecy expert who assured me that I am wrong because I am not reading the Bible properly. That may be true, but I must be shown from the Bible where I have missed the mark. He assured me that the temple will be rebuilt and many other […]

Does the Bible Predict that There Will be a Future Rebuilt Temple?

  Dispensational premillennialists need a future “tribulation temple” so their idea of antichrist can take his seat (2 Thess. 2:4), place a statue for people to worship (Rev. 13:14–15), and proclaim himself to be god (2 Thess. 2:4). But what the dispensationalists really need is a verse that states that there will be another rebuilt […]

Jesus 'Meek and Mild' and Easy to Cage

  For years liberals have turned the Christmas story into a political lecture. The birth of Jesus is political and everything else. Herod the Great was the first to understand the threat to the political and economic status quo: After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod [the Great], […]

Welcome to My World of Dealing with Bible Prophecy ‘Experts’

I don’t claim to be a Bible prophecy expert. All I claim to be is someone who has looked at Bible prophecy passages and compared them with other similar passages. I’ve done this for more than 40 years. One critic of a video I posted was critical of my comments claiming he had studied Bible […]

Pre-Wrath v. Dispensationalism: The 'Rapture' is a Package Deal

As I’ve mentioned in other places, there are five rapture positions. They depend on the belief that the 70th week (seven years) of Daniel’s seventy weeks of years prophecy (490 years) has been postponed. Those who hold to a pre-tribulation rapture position believe the rapture of the church will take place before the seven-year period. […]

Is There a Defense for Using Strong Language in an Argument?

Is harsh rhetoric a bad thing? Are there times when it's OK to let loose with the truth in a way that disturbs some people? I have a saying: "Don't give anyone a reason to reject your position other than the position itself." But sometimes reasoned arguments aren't enough. Often, some people are dismissive of […]

Teaching the Bible in Public Schools is a Trap

Florida legislators have introduced a bill that requires all public high schools to offer elective Bible classes covering the Old and New Testaments. The bill's sponsor is Democrat Kim Daniels. House Bill 341 “requires each school district to offer specified courses relating to religion, Hebrew Scriptures, and Bible to certain students as elective courses.” The fact […]

Should Pastors Address the Subject of Politics?

For decades pastors have been timid about preaching politics from the pulpit. The Old Testament prophets would have been stunned by such timidity. A good many modern-day churches believe that they have some very good biblical reasons for not touching on the subject of politics from the pulpit. Many believe they are prohibited from doing […]

Columbus and the Flat Earth Myth

Each Columbus Day, Christopher Columbus is hammered for his voyages of exploitation of native peoples. At the same time, Christians are ridiculed for once opposing the forward-thinking Columbus and his rejection of the flat earth mythology that was said to have been held by the Medieval church. Is any of it true? I’ll leave the […]

Atheism, the Invisibility of God, and 'Young Sheldon'

The first episode of the third season of CBS’s Young Sheldon is titled “Quirky Eggheads and Texas Snow Globes.” The show is a spinoff of The Big Bang Theory that was created by anti-Christian Chuck Lorre. In the Young Sheldon episode, Sheldon’s mother is concerned about her genius son’s mental condition. It seems that one […]
