Russia


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 …

Once again Christians are being told that we are definitely living in the last days. For example, Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in California said in a November 19, 2015 sermon that current news events are following the plan laid out in Bible prophecy. Melody Dareing, writing for Western Journalism, states that Laurie …

After shooting down a Russian military plane for no good reason, Turkey seems to be getting off pretty lightly. Or perhaps Russian President Vladimir Putin is just getting warmed up. Putin called on Russians to boycott Turkish tomatoes and supermarkets, saying the money spent on them goes to buy Turkish missiles. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev …

I beg to differ with President Obama. Climate change is not the most serious threat faced by this planet. He is. Let me back up a bit. We all know that Obama is touring the world this week touting climate change because he wants to finally pay back all the wealthy people who have financed …

Vladimir Putin’s the Man in the Middle East, and he knows it. Seven years after a community organizer and barely senator named Barack Obama was promising to improve America’s image around the globe and put us back in a position of international leadership, all of our former allies under President Bush won’t return our phone …

Over the past six and half years, Barack Obama has steadily sliced and diced our military. He’s cut the number of troops, planes, warships, tanks, missiles and other weapon. Year after year Obama tries to further reduce the Defense Department’s budget. In some categories, the US military is only 1/3 the strength it was before …

By Raymond Ibrahim Front Page Magazine The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.” According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department, The fight with terrorism is a …

Vladimir Putin has decided to take the role of leading man in the Middle East. With each passing week Vlad continues to displace Barack “The Shrinking Violet” Obama as the Big Man on Campus amongst Arab nations. And so far, it’s been easy. All he has to do is show up and say, “Hey, Barack won’t …

Has the world changed enough to see modern-day Russia in a new light? Vladimir Putin has attacked the United States on ideological grounds. The following is from “Who’s Godless Now? Russia Says It’s U.S.” “At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a ‘godless nation.’ “More than …

“The newspaper has no prerogative to challenge God’s word of truth. Nor do those who read the newspapers.”1 With Russia involved in Syria, the prophecy pundits are making predictions again. The four so-called Blood Moons are so yesterday. There’s a new prophecy speculation on the horizon. The folks at The Blaze have been following the Gog and …

I’m not really into theories about false flags, the allegedly staged events that are designed to distract Americans from other important issues. Mostly, the Powers That Be are simply too stupid to be able to pull off that kind of coordinated stunt. That doesn’t mean, however, that the White House, for example, is unwilling to …

The two issues that are shaping up as President Obama’s last major actions in office will likely completely cut out Congress, giving America’s once-vaunted Constitution a final kick in the pants. Assuming that his jokey talk about a third term was just that — a joke — then Syria and global warming seem like they …
