Why Creation and Prophecy Can’t be Separated

When I wrote my article “Why Young People are Leaving the Church” I knew it would generate some response. I was taken to task by a few Young earth Creationists (YEC) because I did not point out the dangers of Old Earth Creationist (OEC) arguments and how they create serious theological problems such as disease and death before the fall. Some OECs have attempted to answer this objection exegetically. YECists can and do disagree with OEC arguments, but they can’t accuse OECists of not appealing to the Bible to make their case

Joel Richardson Issues Challenge to Hank Hanegraaff Over “Replacement Theology”

Religious teacher, human rights activist and New York Times best-selling author of “The Islamic Antichrist” Joel Richardson is calling for a public debate with Hendrik ‘Hank’ Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute. The subject would be ‘replacement theology,’ […]

Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus

The Latin phrase, Extra ecclesiam nulla salus, means, “Outside the Church there is no ‎salvation”. It refers to the Christian belief that the Church is essential to God’s plan of ‎salvation. It sounds Roman Catholic. It is catholic (i.e. universal), but not Roman Catholic. In ‎fact, this doctrine preceded, survived, and continued after the papal […]

The Charge of Replacement Theology is a Cover for Fuzzy Theology

Joseph Farah of WND (WorldNetDaily) has written the following in an article titled “To those Israel-rejecting Christians. . .”: “[A]n evil doctrine known as Replacement Theology, every bit as ugly as Liberation Theology, has taken root in the church. I’m sorry to say it, but you’ve got to discard or allegorize much of the Bible […]

‘Machine Gun Preacher’ Review

The trailer for ‘Machine Gun Preacher’ wowed Christians with it’s explosive action and obvious religious themes. But does the actual film deliver as an edifying and uplifting tale of compassion? or is it merely a overbearing symposium of ‘Machine Gun Preachiness?’ Find out right now, on Movieology!

‘Seven Days in Utopia’ Movie Review

‘Seven Days in Utopia’ is played to be a golfer’s journey into the heart and soul of the game. Golfing can be fun (so they say) and this film wants to show us how it reflects the game of life. Utopia is not an imaginary place, but a part of our world that few people — let alone sports enthusiasts — ever get to experience. Robert Duvall plays an astute retired golfer that can teach the young and misled golfer wannabe a thing or two about life. So does this work? Or are we left wishing we had instead gone to see ‘The Lion King’ in 3D? Find out now on Movieology!

Church Can be Fun!

Until about two years ago, I never paid much attention to the messages blazoned on the backside of the car in front of me. Lately, however, it seems that bumper stickers have become the last bastion of free speech—the final frontier of public politically incorrect expression. As I was making my way home from work […]

An Infidel Experiment

“An Infidel Experiment” was the title of an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of May 2, 1885, written about the city Liberal, Missouri. Creating “a town without a church, where unbelievers could bring up their children without religious training,” and where Christians were not allowed was the objective for founding Liberal in 1880. A […]

The Evangel and the Isms

While many have been wondering how we “do” church lately—so much so that it is becoming a cliché—the question is still a valid one. The evangelicalism which we inherited from our spiritual forefathers operated a certain way because of where and when it was active. The evangelicalism of 100 years ago assumed a familiarity with […]

A Curious Mix

We often hear that Christians should not impose their religion on others. Practice your Faith in the Church and in your home, but don’t mix it with politics we’re told. This view is contrary to the Bible and American history. Many supporters of the War for Independence were not Christians. To be sure, rationalist influence […]

Heal the Nation? Heal the Church First!

Many people and organizations including our own are calling for a political revival back to the form of government that our Founding Fathers established. However, when examining the history of God’s people in His Word, it has become clearly obvious that before we can ask God to heal our land that we first need to heal the Church.

By Church, I am referring to the 77% of Americans that identified themselves as Christians in a Gallup Poll released April 10, 2009. (Sadly, that figure has dropped from the 91% in 1948.) If the three-fourths of the American population actually lived a true Christian life, our nation would not be suffering the wrath of God that we are currently under. If these Christians lived their lives like 77% of Muslims or Buddhists, or Sikhs, or other religions do, we would still be the Christian nation that our Founders established it to be.
