I Beg Your Pardon
April 15, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Country music filled my childhood home, including the 1971 hit: ''I Beg Your Pardon''. In it, Lynn Anderson goes on to proclaim, "I never promised you a rose garden."  Neither did God: Eve sinned, and our garden turned to pain and sorrow.  But yet aren't we somehow still surprised by that reality?

The Restrainer
April 14, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Out of all the varying eschatological views, the Pre-Tribulation view is the strongest and most scripturally consistent advocate of God’s dealings with man in the entire Bible.  You can see it in typology, symbolism, and in both the OT and NT passages.  It is found in the Prophets, the Psalms, the Gospels, the Epistles, and in Revelation.  The Pre-Tribulation view remains the most scripturally consistent view within God’s purpose and plan for man’s redemption.

Forbidden Knowledge Part I
March 10, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Then the serpent said to the woman, ''You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, 'knowing' good and evil.'' (Genesis 3:4-5)

I am Barabbas
February 24, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
In my recent discussions with those hermeneutically opposed to my biblical worldview, we seem to keep coming back to the discussion of whether the Church is now “True Israel”.  In fact, it seems to be the biggest stumbling block in our little group that we have (aside from whether there will be an actual, literal millennial reign of Christ on earth).  Now, many will admit that God still has a plan for “Israel” (national/ethnic Jews), but since Christ has come and fulfilled everything, He now is Israel.

Left Behind Theology
February 21, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
The term ''left behind theology'' has been evoked to marginalize pretribulationism by non-pretribulationists. It is also used to attack dispensationalism by advocates of Covenant Theology etc. The inference is that most people who believe in the pretrib rapture have derived their theology from the popular Left Behind books.

The Mysteries of God
February 17, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
I've often asked myself why was the Bible written the way it was...a little here, a little there.  God's message to mankind, parceled out over 1,600 years to around 40 different writers, all from vastly different times and backgrounds.  Why do some subjects lend themselves to such an extent, that opposing views, whether it is on Baptism or the Second Coming, seemingly justify their opposing points of view?  You know what I'm talking about.  Any time you've discussed the bible with anyone else, you point to this verse to prove your point, and they point to another that seems to prove their point.  So why was God's word written like that, when the Holy Spirit could have had the Prophets, Apostles, and Writers state exactly what God means in such a way that it couldn’t possibly be construed any other way?

The Immortals
February 09, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
''And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.'' (Matt 16:18) Did you ever wonder what Jesus meant in this passage about building His church?

Why I Believe in God
January 30, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Let me count the ways. Some people believe in the Almighty on faith alone, and others do not. Many believe because they were once skeptics and decided to check it out, from a skeptic’s point of view and found the story to be credible, and remarkable.

Butterball Meets the Missing Link
January 28, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Ever been to a natural science museum? Then you've probably seen a picture of the archaeopteryx, a long-extinct animal that Berkeley's website calls ''intermediate between birds that we see flying around and the predatory dinosaurs'', and ''one of the most important fossils discovered''.  I concur with the latter. But not for the same reasons.

The 'Church of Christ' in the Last Days
December 30, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
Chances are, if you belong to a Church of Christ (non-instrumental), you probably wouldn’t be reading the Omega Letter in the first place.  But, I have met enough people along the way who were or know people who are; that I thought this warranted writing.

Oh Holy Night
December 24, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
Today more than 2 billion Christians are gearing up to celebrate the birth of a baby. A very special baby. A 'one of a kind' baby—Jesus-- the only baby in history to be born of a virgin. Or maybe not. 'Cause apparently it’s out of fashion to really believe that.

Dispensational Truth: Part III
December 18, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
Many different groups have come in the past claiming that they were the true Church, and that all others had fallen away, and only they retained the truth.

Dispensational Truth: Part II
December 11, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
Last week we went over some very general truths that help the believer understand who he or she is in Christ. We are not the 'new Israel'. We are like Israel in that God also sets us aside, but we have very different purposes for our calling. Again, I will be pulling heavily from Clarence Larkin's book, The Greatest Book of Dispensational Truth in the World.

Dispensational Truth: Part I
December 04, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
I often get asked what denomination I belong too once people find out that I like to talk Bible.  It is a natural short-cut question, as we are more comfortable putting people into a niches rather than trying to spend an hour guessing what their views on various topics are.

Isaiah in the High Places
December 03, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
The age of enlightenment was "a cultural movement of 17th and 18th century intellectuals who emphasized reason and individualism rather than tradition." (Oxford Dictionary). German pastor Friedrich Schleiermacher (a.k.a. the "father of modern hermeneutics") was one of them. Not good. Hermeneutics is Bible interpretation. And it's his kind of thinking that duplicated Isaiah.

Thanksgiving Day
November 28, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
''Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare.  They are consumed in twelve minutes.  Half-times take twelve minutes.  This is not coincidence.'' ~ Erma Brombeck

The Creator and the Casino
November 19, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
Baron C.P. Snow, English chemist and novelist, once wrote a book entitled The Two Cultures. In it, he sought to explain the wonders of science (specifically thermodynamics) to the non-scientific mind. He chose a gambling analogy. But in this game (like most casinos), the end was fixed from the beginning.

God is Greater?
November 15, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
In recent news the Church of Sweden elected Antje Jackelén as its new archbishop. The church has around 6.5 million members divided into 13 dioceses, all of which are overseen by a bishop. In turn, these bishops report to archbishop Jackelén.

Abraham’s Mistake
October 17, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
Most people have heard of or know who Abraham was, chosen by God who spoke to him directly. That in itself was unique. God told him to leave his family, head out into the desert, carry a little food, water and supplies; and don’t take anyone with you. Can you imagine?

Of Barracks and Bigots
October 15, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
The Southern Poverty Law Center (according to its website) fights hate and bigotry by tracking and exposing hate groups.  It's a big job, since (by their numbers) hate groups have grown more than 1000% percent since 2008.  And that was before yesterday, when they decided that more than half the country qualified.

A Divine Dissolution
October 01, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
Today's topic: science. Specifically, "decoupling", a word that according to Webster means to separate or detach. You'll find the word "separate" 53 times in the Bible (NASV). And one of those times is nothing less than slam-dunk proof that the Scriptures had one supernatural Author. And that that supernatural Author is God.

Faith Anchored
September 24, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
Bob Cornuke began as a police investigator in Costa Mesa, California, but in between swat-team missions his career took an unexpected turn.  Now Bob uses the investigative skills learned from the FBI to verify the locations of biblical events.  His method is kind of novel one.  He actually uses his Bible.

From Here to Eternity
September 18, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
The Christian world is currently divided into two groups.  There are those who suffer under the boot of physical persecution, and those who do not.  Those currently experiencing persecution include Christians from the Middle and Far East, Africa, various Latin American countries, and those who live in western nations, but predominantly non-Christian communities.

Generation Z
September 10, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
''Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.'' (Matthew 24:32-34)

Love, Lust, and Abraham Lincoln
August 27, 2013 - In Defense of the Faith
I realize that this will be a 180 degree departure from what I normally write, but I’ve felt it stirring in me for a long time.  After researching everything I did for ‘Manifesto’ and the roots of political correctness, I knew I had to put my thoughts to paper about this aspect of warfare…and it is warfare.
