There’s no escaping a belief in God. The individual can be a god unto him or herself. “Every person doing what is right in his or her eyes” (Judges 17:6). The problem is, someone with a rock, club, sword, spear, knife, gun, or a nuclear weapon can change all of that. Separating the God of […]
London buses were outfitted with the following banner ads: “There’s Probably No God. Now Stop Worrying and Enjoy Life.”1 The sponsors hoped the postings would get people to question the existence of God: “This campaign to put alternative slogans on London buses will make people think — and thinking is anathema to religion,” the promoters […]
If you had to instruct someone on how to interpret the Bible, how would you go about doing it? There are many books on how to interpret the Bible. These books in and of themselves aren’t bad, but the ordinary Christian is not going to spend time taking a hermeneutics course and studying these texts. […]
In the modern world, then, each Christian is a citizen of two nations: An earthly nation like France, England, or the U.S.A., and the heavenly nation (Eph 2:6; not of this world, John 18:36), the church. Though we belong entirely to Christ, we do not on that account renounce our citizenship in the earthly nations, […]
Here we go again. A hypocritical Leftist quotes the Bible to support governmental theft. Forcing companies to pay a minimum wage is theft. In addition, noting is said in the Constitution that gives authority to the Federal Government to pass minimum wage legislation. The President and every member of Congress takes an oath to uphold […]
Why do Christians waste time and money in defense of public (government) education? I heard a spirited defense of America’s primary governmental indoctrination centers at a conference I attended this weekend. While Christians try to “save” their beloved public schools, another generation of young people is seduced by the anti-Christian worldview of public education.
News of an asteroid worth 10,000 quadrillions in precious heavy metals has scientists, gold bugs, and journalists all atwitter. “That means if we carried it back to Earth, it would destroy commodity prices and cause the world’s economy – worth $75.5 trillion – to collapse.” How is this possible? I mean, everyone would be a […]
Madonna wants to meet with Pope Francis to discuss abortion. She claims that Jesus would support a “woman’s right to choose,” that abortion does not end a human life. She needs to stick to singing and dancing. She doesn’t know what she’s talking about even if she calls herself Madonna. “Madonna was raised Catholic and […]
We need to stop presidents from taking their constitutional oath with their hand on the Bible, swearing before God that they will uphold the Constitution all the while knowing they won’t. Their campaigns and policies tell us that they will not follow the Constitution to the letter. The Constitution is a prop. It’s no different […]
Michael Brown has published a good article on abortion and the Bible: “Are There Really Verses in the Bible That Support Abortion?” It’s worthwhile reading. It’s a relatively short article and covers a lot of ground. He writes the following about a critical text about abortion: The question, then, is simple: Does the Torah consider […]
A skeptic named Jonathan asked the following question on Ray Comfort’s blog: “Could anyone of you believers tell me when the end times will happen, besides soon? It seems to me that the end times have been preached by man ever since the time they created their fictional deities.” Ray’s answer is similar to an […]
Margaret Atwood, the author of The Handmaid’s Tale (1985) that’s in its third TV season on Hulu, is a radical secularist and abortion advocate. This is how Wikipedia describes the plotline of the series: In the near future, fertility rates collapse as a result of sexually transmitted diseases and environmental pollution. With this chaos, the […]
Jesus had more problems with His fellow-Jews than He did the Romans. Yes, the Romans crucified Him, but it was a cadre of Jewish antagonists that lit the fuse (Acts 2:22-23). Paul warned the Ephesian elders that “savage wolves” would come in among the flock “speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them” (21:29-30). Similar things are happening with homosexuality.
Here we go again. Democrats are appealing to the Bible to support one of their policies. Here’s what New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said about a bill she is co-sponsoring with Bernie Sanders: Usury — aka high interest — happens to be explicitly denounced in the Bible (& in many other religions). Looking forward to having […]
Is it, “the proof is in the pudding”? Or is it, “the proof of the pudding is in the eating”? Fake sayings are like fake news or fake history. There’s some truth in what is reported, for example, some of the words may be the same, but there’s so much that’s untrue as to make […]
Former Baptist Pastor appeals to the Bible to support his rejection of the Bible.
The following is from a two-minute video clip “Should Christians be Focused on ‘Taking Back the Culture’?” by Pastor John MacArthur (see my video response below): I really couldn’t care less about the culture war. I wouldn’t give ten seconds to worrying. What are you talking about? Two temporal opposing moral philosophies? What is culture? […]
The following article was written in 2016. The debate continues on how houses of worship should defend themselves. Does the Bible offer any help? Good Christian? Bad Christian? It all depends on who’s doing the evaluating. The reaction to Jerry Falwell Jr.’s comments on encouraging students at Liberty University to be armed in case there […]
