My New Book is Now Available: ‘The Rapture and the Fig Tree Generation’

On January 21, 2020, I traveled to Dinosaur Adventure Land in Conecuh County, Alabama, where I debated the topic of the Rapture with Kent Hovind.

Is Rebuilding the Temple the Next Event on the Prophetic Timeline?

An Israeli political party official wants to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. He doesn’t want to wait for years. He wants to begin now.

Stop using the Bible as an excuse to avoid politics

Does the Bible forbid Christians from being involved in politics? It would be a hard case to prove since there are numerous books of the Bible that are filled with politics—from Joshua, Judges, and 1 and 2 Samuel to 1 and 2 Kings and the Old Testament Prophets.

Why do prophecy teachers keep misleading us about Antichrist?

There is a long history of prophetic speculation. When I say a long history, I mean a l-o-n-g history.

Nature is a thing, not […]

The prophecy pundits are scaremongering again: Here’s how to answer them from the Bible. . . .

Once again, prophecy prognosticators are predicting Jesus is going to wrap up everything in our generation because things are so bad the end must be near.
