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.

Does the Bible Teach an Israel-Church Distinction?

Gaining a proper understanding of the Greek word ekklēsia, most often translated “church” in the New Testament, [1] is the key in answering the charge that non-dispensationalists teach that the church replaces Israel.

Young Earth Creationism and Gap Theology

Young Earth Creationism (YEC) is all about interpreting the Bible literally. They take the days of creation literally as well as the genealogies. YECs are very critical of Old Earth Creationists (OEC) for not taking the Bible literally on these and other creation issues. For years I have tried to get YEC organizations that push […]

Defending Dispensationalism at All Costs

Dave Hunt continues to ask questions about a preterist interpretation of Scripture. They’re true by definition because they support dispensationalism. Mr. Hunt knows that he no longer has to defend his position because there is a willing audience that will believe any listing of them because they are dispensationalists and their belief system is dependent […]

Jesus Already Stood on the Mount of Olives

The following question was asked of Dave Hunt on his Berean Call website: Question: You have criticized preterism and amillennial teaching as being unbiblical, but teachers such as R. C.

Why the Rapture is Not in Revelation

This article continues my brief review of Jeff Lasseigne’s Unlocking the Last Days. I’m not picking on Lasseigne.

Such an interpretive approach is pandemic in end-time speculative commentaries whose authors claim they interpret the most symbolic book of […]

A Review of "Unlocking the Last Days" by Jeff Lasseigne

Of the writing of commentaries on the book of Revelation there are many. In his Commenting and Commentaries, first published in 1876, C. H. Spurgeon remarks that “the works upon REVELATION are so extremely numerous . . . and the views so many, so different, and so speculative. . . . Numbers of these prophecyings […]
