Bible


Theologian and pastor John Piper was asked by a Christian from Switzerland “why Jesus has not yet returned despite promises made some 2,000 years ago in the Bible.” Here’s how the questioner framed his argument: As I was studying with our children the need to evaluate prophets by biblical criteria the following thought hit me: The …

My wife and I sat down the Saturday before the Academy Awards to watch the 2015 film Trumbo. Dalton Trumbo is played by Bryan Cranston who did a marvelous job, certainly worthy of the Academy Award nomination he received for Best Actor. It’s loosely based on the Hollywood screenwriter, author, and self-admitted Communist Dalton Trumbo …

I’ve been writing on the subject of eschatology (the study of the last things) for a long time and countering the argument that a near end-time apocalypse is around the corner. Over the years I have participated in innumerable debates, written ten books on the subject, and published nearly 100 articles. If there’s anyone new …

Let’s get a few preliminaries out of the way. First, there is no doubt that there are few differences between the two major parties. With both Houses of Congress owned by the Republicans, one would think that the claimed differences would have come out and the GOP would have fought for the principles they claim …

A group of atheists wants the courts to declare the phrase “In God We Trust” unconstitutional and removed from our nation’s currency. These atheists are the secular version of the Islamic State who go about destroying anything related to competing religions. And atheism is a religion. “Satellite images confirm that the oldest Christian monastery in Iraq has …

It’s a well-rehearsed story that occurs annually like clockwork as soon as the Christmas trees, menorahs and nativity scenes start appearing across the country. Every holiday season, some atheists get their undies in a bunch because they can’t stand that everybody else is celebrating. So like the proverbial Grinch whose heart was two sizes too …

Did you know that the Bible does not teach that Jesus rose from the dead? Did you know that “the body of Christ” always refers to the actual body of Jesus? Well, that’s what highly paid liberal Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker claimed in response to a comment made by Sen. Ted …

When two years ago a Texas father beat his daughter’s rapist to death, no one in Texas had any doubts as to what the decision of the Grand Jury would be. The law in Texas not only allows but specifically authorizes the use of lethal force to prevent sexual assault. In this, the state gives …

It’s hard getting old. Bernie Sanders is getting old and he’s not thinking straight. It doesn’t help that his political philosophy is out of whack. His latest scheme to get votes is demanding that white America apologize for slavery. I’m pretty sure that the deaths of 600,000 dead American citizens who died to “free the …

Yes, they actually said “Satanic.” A PBS panel of so-called journalists on the “PBS News Hour” show called Sen. Ted Cruz “Satanic,” then doubled down by likewise labeling Cruz’s father, Rafael, who is an evangelical pastor. New York Times columnist David Brooks was asked a simple question by host Judy Woodruff, whether any of the …

“Tolerate us or else!” Homosexuals have been unusually successful in pushing their intolerance on 98 percent of the population. Defy their demand for tolerance, and they’ll sue you into oblivion. Islam is equally intolerant in their demand for tolerance. They’ll also sue you or worse. The latest dustup is over prayer at a Colorado beef …

This is a new one, but it’s an old one at the same time. Apparently, a substantial number of Muslims in the Las Vegas region have converted to Christianity. On its face, that’s good news. However, they seem to be having a hard time making the transition, as a group that admittedly includes a large …
