  In Defense of the Faith
The Late Great Holy Scriptures
September 29, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Peter Enns, (who claims to be a Christian) wrote the book: The Bible Tells Me So: Why Defending Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It. Why can’t “we” read it? Because  “like a knockoff Chanel handbag: it’s  believable only as long as it’s kept at a distance, away from curious and probing eyes.”

Christianity Lite
September 25, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
I was raised a Presbyterian, Christened in 1957 as a 5th grader in High Point, North Carolina.  Maybe it was because I was little, but the High Point First Presbyterian Church seemed huge and beautiful. I loved Sunday school but hated going to church and listen to the preacher talk about a lot of stuff that I didn’t understand and had no interest in understanding

The Proof is in the Archeological Pudding
September 18, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
In Israel, the hills are alive but not with the sound of music. Across the landscape in the 18th century, archeologists in The Holy Land discovered that many of the hills across the desolate land had surprises underneath. Over the centuries, cities and villages, long destroyed, abandoned and forgotten had been covered with sand and dust. Marvelous discoveries have been made since, proof for those who need such.

“Come and See”
August 25, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Clearly, the idea of the Rapture can be considered the most preposterous belief in Biblical Christianity. The situation regarding the doctrine of the Rapture is painfully similar to the famous quote by Dr. Richard Feynman, speaking of quantum physics:

I’m a Believer
August 21, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Everyone wants a ''sign''. Well, maybe not everyone. Some really do believe in God based purely on faith; but others who don’t believe, might if they just had a sign. I hear this a lot, ''show me the beef''. That was me 40 years ago.

America the Blessed
August 20, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
America was once a nation that was very blessed by God. I recall that the morals in the community where I grew up were much higher than the morals we have today.

When You Wanna be Left Behind?
August 19, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
The apostle Paul, in Romans, spends three chapters explaining that Israel's failure to recognize their Messiah did not at all negate God's promises to His chosen people. Paul said emphatically, in fact, that at some future point, "all Israel will be saved”. The big question? Does "saved" mean physical or spiritual? The answer? Both.

Losing my Self
August 15, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
They put on clothes, jewelry, and attitudes to hide their fears. They pour themselves into sports, clubs, studies, and dates to find themselves. Or lose themselves. But they never do. The Enemy has made them so they can find themselves and lose themselves only in Him." ~ Prince Ishbane (The Ishbane Conspiracy co-written by Randy Alcorn and his two daughters)

Will Craig get Left Behind?
August 08, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
In anticipation of the forthcoming Left Behind movie remake, Christian apologist William Lane Craig threw his hat into the ring and proffered his opinion on the rapture. It's unclear to me if he was asked for his view or whether he felt compelled to offer it.

Of Kings and Queens
July 29, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Special-interest Bibles are hot sellers: Bible for new moms and homeschool moms, sports lovers and cops, pre-teen girls (sequined) and boys (camo), even "Saddlebag Bibles" for bikers (often just a themed cover and related commentary). Now, a Bible made just for gays: The Queen James Bible.  And its ''specialties'' go way deeper than the cover.

Watch and Do Not Grow Weary
July 28, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Ever feel as though you are all alone, in waiting for the Lord to return?  Do you attend a church that would rather give a seminar on the Ebola Virus, than the Lord’s return?  Ever feel as though you want to watch and wait, but then life takes over and you get caught up dealing with the problems and cares of this life?  Ever feel as though you simply don’t have enough hours in the day to devote to spending time with God?  Ever feel as though you don’t think you make a difference?

Divergent Doctrines; Part III
July 21, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Having looked at some of the major sticking points Christian denominations have had over the years, I wanted to tie this up by looking at how these differences will be used against the church in the days, months, and years ahead.

Divergent Doctrines; Part II
July 14, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Last week we started with theological issues that have in large part, divided the church over the millennia.  I began with the Rapture of the Church, and continue on this week to the Trinity and the Ordinances.

Independence Day in the USA
July 10, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
July 4 is Independence Day in the United States, and it took the Revolutionary War for it to occur. George Washington and his brave, often rag-tag soldiers won that hard fought war with some soldiers freezing to death at night.  Shoes were hard to come by; and soldiers would sometimes wrap their bare feet in leaves or padding, anything they could find. No army boots. There were not a lot of Moms who wanted to send their kids off to war. Who would?

A Sheep of a Different Color
July 09, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Genesis 30 seems to describe Jacob mysteriously breeding spotted sheep by mating white sheep in front of peeled branches in a watering hole--which, as a geneticist, has been one of the most difficult passages of Scripture for me to defend. Until 2008 and the birth of epigenetics.

Divergent Doctrines; Part I
July 07, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
I asked Jack a couple of years ago in the Members Forum, about something that had been really bothering me.  How can a person, who claims to be a Christian, filled with the Holy Spirit (who is supposed to guide you into all truth), be a Preterist?  How could a person who has the same Holy Spirit as I do, be so utterly wrong and yet still be a Christian?

The Ghost of a Good Thing
June 16, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
Recently, I was thinking of the woman Emily Letts, who gained her five, brief minutes of fame, by filming her own abortion.  Through the murderous process, she smiles tentatively and tries to put a positive spin on the act of infanticide. Though admittedly, I could not watch it all, I kept thinking, what a broken people we are.  How it must truly grieve God to see all the horrible things we do to ourselves and to each other.

The End of Until
April 29, 2014 - In Defense of the Faith
According to ''Bible Statistics'', 6 billion Bibles were printed in 2013. All kinds. You've seen them…glittered Bibles for preteen girls. Archaeology Bibles. Witnessing Bibles. Chronological Bibles. Bibles for moms, hunters, policeman, grandparents, toddlers. Bibles annotated by famous pastors. Maybe the golden age of Bibles.  Well, it would be if anybody was reading them.

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?
