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 […]

Earlier this month, former Minnesota Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, declared “that the nuclear agreement reached between Iran, the United States and five other world powers is nothing more than the fulfillment of End Times prophecy found in the Bible, and added that the world will likely see the ‘strong right arm’ of the Lord strike […]

Two False Teachings that Have Gotten us into This Mess

Michele Bachmann Says Jesus’ Second Coming is ‘Imminent’ Because of Obama’s Nuclear Negotiations With Iran

The Christian Post reports that “Former congresswoman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has accused President Barack Obama of being ‘pro the goals of Islamic jihad,’ which she explains includes welcoming the ‘hidden imam’ to bring on the apocalypse.” She went on to say, “Talk about what you see in the newspaper every single […]

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 […]

Is the Rise in Natural Disasters a Sign that the ‘End Times’ are Upon Us?

A report by the Public Religion Research Institute reports that nearly half of Americans “believe that the recent surge in natural disasters is the result of biblical ‘End Times’ and not “climate change, and more than two-thirds of white evangelical Protestants hold this belief, according to a new study.” The premise is false.

Why the ‘Left Behind’ Film Flopped and Why It’s a Good Thing

If there’s one thing that Christians get upset about is a disagreement over some of their cherished beliefs they think are found in the Bible.

Liberals Love It When Billy Graham Claims the End is Near

In a recent article on the WND website, I found the article “Billy Graham Sounds Alarm for 2nd Coming”: “Just as Noah did in ancient times, world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham is sounding the alarm that the Second Coming is ‘near’ and signs of the end of the age are ‘converging now for the first time […]

May 14, 1948 to 1988 to 2013: 65 Years of Bad Prophetic Timing

Sixty five years ago today, Israel became a nation again. Prophetic writers saw this event as the end-time sign that something called the “rapture” could not be far off. Within 40 years of that May 14, 1948 date, prophecy writers were telling us, Jesus would return and take His Church to heaven to be followed […]

Prophecy Writers Spreading Misinformation

“The single best-selling nonfiction book of the 1970s was not The Joy of Sex or even The Joy of Cooking; it was Hal Lindsey’s The Late Great Planet Earth.”1 It was declared by the New York Times to be the “no. 1 non-fiction bestseller of the decade.”2 Estimates put sales at more than 15 million […]

Why are Most Jews Liberal?

Anytime you write about Jews and African Americans, you run the risk of being labeled anti-Semitic and racist. There’s no way getting around what will be inevitable criticism. But since Michael Medved, an observant Jew and a conservative, broached the subject in the November 21, 2011 issue of USA Today, I feel that I’m on […]
