Premillennialism Among the Ante-Nicene Fathers

The place to begin to evaluate the assertion that premillennialism was the only view of the early church would be to survey the writings of the Ante-Nicene Fathers, the writings of the early church prior to the drafting of the Nicene Creed in A.D. 325. The thing of it is, we don’t have all the […]

Three Reasons for a Drop in Religion and One of Them is Not the Internet

There’s a new study out that is giving the impression to some people that the loss of religion is the result of the Internet. The UK Daily Mail article does not make a causal relationship, but some Christian sites give the impression that it does.  Allen Downey, a computer scientist at the Olin College of […]

Kicking Against the Exegetical Pricks of ‘This Generation’ in Matthew 24

At the February 23, 2013 Symposium on Revelation, premillennialist Jim Hamilton (Hamilton) took issue with my argument that the phrase “this generation” refers to the generation to whom Jesus was speaking. During the critique session, Hamilton argued that “this generation” in Matthew 24:34 and elsewhere in the gospels means a “type of generation” rather than […]

Shouldn’t Revelation be interpreted literally?

In preparation for the Reno Symposium on Revelation, I did a lot of preparation work. Some of it I was able to use (some of which you can find here). The following concerns the claim that Revelation should be interpreted in a consistently literal way. Nobody interprets the book of Revelation literally, as the word […]

Six steps for a victorious Remnant

Adrenaline. Lately I’ve had a lot of it. For me, the source is the news, current events, and the fear of what may happen in the near future. The internet is amazing. Every little thing happening around the world is reported and we all hear about it within seconds. It can be utterly overwhelming. Years […]

Is Jesus Going to Reign on Earth?

There are lots of things that people believe the Bible teaches that just aren’t there. I have developed a Bible test that makes this point. Here’s one of them: Did Noah’s ark land on Mt. Ararat? The answer is no. The ark came to rest on the mountains (plural) of Ararat (Gen. 8:4). There are […]

One Christian’s “Fringe” is another Christian’s Orthodoxy

The newspapers are commenting regularly on the Harold Camping claim that a so-called rapture will take place on May 21, 2011 with the end of the world to following on October 21st. Here’s one that National Public Radio (NPR) posted on its website: “Is the End Nigh? We’ll Know Soon Enough.” Even the international press […]

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. He’s not the only commentator to interpret Revelation in terms of what’s going on in our generation. Such an interpretive approach is pandemic in end-time speculative commentaries whose authors claim they interpret the most symbolic book of […]

The Rapture: May 21, 2011

Predictions of the rapture are no new thing as the image to the left shows. In spite of the failure of his 1994 rapture prediction, Harold Camping is predicting May 21, 2011 as the date the rapture will take place. American Vision is so confident that Camping is wrong, we are holding our National Prophecy […]

Old Testament Ties to New Testament Prophecy

Gary continues his response to Pastor Jim McClarty’s critique of his interpretation of the 1000 years in Revelation 20. McClarty presents arguments for a literal interpretation of Old and New Testament prophecies. Gary DeMar argues the Bible should be taken literally but on its own terms by comparing Scripture with Scripture. The Bible is the […]
