Michele Bachman and Glenn Beck Can Only See the Apocalypse

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 […]

Why Michele Bachmann is Wrong about Her Claim that “Jesus is Coming Soon”

A number of websites (The Blaze, Red State, and The Hill) have picked up a story from Right Wing Watch about Michele Bachmann’s comments about eschatology. There have been numerous reposts on Facebook. In biblical theology, eschatology is the study of the last things. It’s often synonymous with Bible prophecy of which there is a […]

Pope Loses Faith, Warns of ‘Unprecedented’ Climate Damage

Pope Francis’ latest encyclical was leaked Monday by an Italian news outlet that broke a Thursday embargo. According to The Independent, in the encyclical, the pope warns of “unprecedented destruction” unless all of mankind jumps on the global warming bandwagon right now. He reportedly blames wealthy countries for “looting” the world, and bankers and climate […]

Does New Religion Study Show that God is Cleaning House?

By now you have seen articles about a recent Pew Study report about  the decline of Christianity and the rise of atheists, agnostics, and “Nones.” Actually, what we are seeing is a spiritual house cleaning. Nominal Christians – Christians in name only — are becoming consistent with their shallow faith and are departing the church. […]

Two False Teachings that Have Gotten us into This Mess

I know I’m going to get into trouble for writing this article. That’s OK. It needs to be said. While there are numerous contributing factors as to why we are at this point in time with the Supreme Court about to redefine the very nature of the family and what it might mean long-term for […]

Why the 3 Percent is Beating the 30 Percent and Will Target Churches Next

As I pointed out in a “When Gays Fire-Bombed a Church: ‘Gay Rights or Gay Riots,’” Christians have been the target in the homosexual debate going back more than 30 years. Homosexuals learned that by attacking one church or one person at a time, they could get pro-homosexual precedents established. They also learned that there […]

Another False Antichrist Flag

Any time some new political figure comes on the scene, the prophecy pundits come out with their speculations on whether he might be the antichrist. Have these people learned nothing? The number of antichrist figures is legion. The latest antichrist candidate is the new Greek Prime Minister Alexios Tsipras: “Alexios Tsipras has been prime minister […]

ISIS is an Evolved Form of Islam. And Evolution is Good, Right?

Do you remember how President Obama told us that his views on homosexuality “evolved”? Well, that’s what’s happening with Islam. ISIS is an evolved form of Islam. In time, people will either embrace the new Islam or they will be destroyed. Isn’t that what’s happening in the United States over same-sex everything? ISIS is a different […]

Will John Hagee’s Views on Israel Lead America to War?

“I am a student of world history,” John “Blood Moons” Hagee says, “and you can wrap up world history in 25 words or less and here it is: the nations that blessed Israel prospered and the nations that cursed Israel were destroyed by the hand of God. . . . If America turns its back […]

Are You On the Right Side of History?

I saw a recent hand-held sign from a protester on television with the words: “Which side of history are you on?” With another Christmas approaching, I can’t overstate how relevant that notion is when it comes to Christ’s kingdom, which began 2000 years ago and will one day see its wider fulfillment. Christmas is a […]

Is End Times Thinking Causing Political Indifference?

I thought we had learned our lesson from people like Edgar Whisenant, who claimed there were 88 reasons why the “rapture” would take place in 1988, as well as Hal Lindsey and Chuck Smith who argued in a similar way. Let’s not forget Harold Camping who made predicting the end end-times a popular and public […]

Six Million African Muslims Convert to Christianity Every Year

Islam is dying. If there was ever a dead-end ideology, it’s Islam. A top Saudi Cleric has described ISIS as the No. 1 enemy of Islam. Islam itself is its own worst enemy. It’s an ideology with no future. The earliest days of Christianity saw a similar manifestation of evil. The apostle Paul participated in […]
