Proof That Facts and Sound Arguments Aren’t Always Persuasive

Facts do not come with interpretation tags, telling us how to view them. . . . Both sides haggle over the facts. Both sides search for new facts to add to their arsenals. Both sides raise accusations, yet it’s a rare day indeed when both sides acknowledge that their differences stem from something much more […]

My Facebook Dialogue with a Confused Prophecy Seminary Graduate

After posting my article “Prophecy Writers Making Predictions Again,” it got quite a few comments. One particular commenter (TDS) was very frustrating to deal with because he refused to acknowledge facts that are not in dispute. This is not unusual. Facts don’t speak for themselves. They are always interpreted. I often see Christians going to […]

Early Documents in the Debate Over Preterism: The Didache

While I was visiting my friend Mike Britton (who’s been in a coma for more than a year), I spoke with a man who had been discipled by Mike. He’s been teaching a Bible study on prophecy. We spoke on the phone. He told me about a back-and-forth debate he was having with a friend. […]

More Anti-Culture-War Comments from John MacArthur

In Pastor John MacArthur’s anti-Culture Wars video, he said the following: “I don’t think it matters if you go to hell as a policeman or a prostitute. What matters is that you are going to hell!” Preaching the gospel so people won’t go to hell is the priority. The question is, what should the redeemed […]

Should Christians Accept that an Anti-Christian ‘Secularized Society’ is Inevitable?

In an earlier article (“Christian Lawyer and Church Elder Says Christians Must ‘Surrender to Unbelievers at Every Level’”) I dealt with comments made by Carlos Chung who argued that “As soldiers of Christ, we are to surrender to unbelievers at every level.” Chung’s article appears on “The Master’s Seminary Blog.” If this is what seminarians […]

Christian Lawyer and Church Elder Says Christians Must “Surrender to Unbelievers at Every Level”

I saw an article posted on Facebook with the title “We Must Surrender.” It was written by Carlos Chung who serves as an elder at Grace Community Church in the Mainstream fellowship group and is a lawyer. The article is badly argued and dangerous. Here’s how it begins: As soldiers of Christ, we are to […]

John MacArthur and the Culture Wars: Part 3

In Paul Dallas’ novel The Lost Planet, a story about how two teenagers avert a war between their home planets, the main characters learn a crucial military lesson. The scene takes place just before the teenager from Earth boards a spaceship and travels to the distant planet Poseida: As he spoke, the general seemed to […]

John MacArthur, Culture Wars, and Spiritual Conflict

This second installment is a response to a short video clip that Pastor John MacArthur did on Culture Wars. As I mentioned in the first installment, culture is an inescapable concept. See the video below for a more comprehensive response. There is no way to ignore it or escape it. You are either changing the […]

John MacArthur: “I Couldn’t Care Less About the Culture War”

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? […]

Does the ‘Primary Mission of the Church’ Negate Social Transformation?

We don’t live under a king or a Caesar. Our governing document is the Constitution. We have the freedom to vote civil officials out of office. We can petition the government for a redress of grievances. The Ninth and Tenth Amendments limit the national government.

Should the Church ‘Only Preach the Gospel’?

The fact that pastors have the freedom to worship, preach, publish, assemble, and petition the government for a redress of grievances (the First Amendment to the Constitution) is because Christians addressed “political and social structures.”

Jesus Has Not Called Us to be Doormats

If Christians don’t engage the culture at every level — politics included — then they will be excluded from every area of life. Get busy now or forever hold your peace when the iron boot of the State and social forces stomp on your face forever.
