What is Truth?
Pilate saith unto Him, "What is truth?. . . " (John 18:38) This is the question that has bedeviled philosophers since the dawn of time. It is a subjective question; one person's truth is another person's untruth, yet truth itself is neither subjective nor objective; that is to say, truth is true whether anyone believes it or not.

But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. Luke 17:25-30

The Race on the Milk Carton
August 23, 2016 - Witnessing Tools
Tucked away in Genesis 6 is a passage I’ve never heard discussed on Sunday morning. And I bet you haven’t either. One that discusses a species other than ours. One that describes half-breed offspring created by intermarriage of this foreign species with humans. One that calls those half-breed offspring a very specific name, the Nephilim. Which in Hebrew means “fallen ones”.

"She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes; She can ruin your faith with her casual lies; And she only reveals what she wants you to see; She hides like a child but she's always a woman to me." ~Billy Joel "She’s Always a Woman to Me"
A Flat Planet Earth
August 19, 2016 - In Defense of the Faith

Science in Chains
August 16, 2016 - In Defense of the Faith
Virginia Heffernan, columnist at the New York Times, once penned the article “why I am a creationist” in which she confessed that she “had never found a more compelling story of our origins than the ones that involve God.” The rabid, God-hating intelligentsia were at her throat immediately. Called her very nasty words. No Surprise. But she got off easy.
Glow in the Dark Faith
August 15, 2016 - Prophecy - Signs
This might be a hard pill to swallow for some, but we are now living in a post-Christian nation. For the better part of 50 years, America has been transitioning from that of broad-based, Judeo-Christian culture, to that of a neo-pagan/secular humanistic one. She is no longer that ‘shining city on a hill’, because she is abandoning those principles that made her stand out amongst the nations. For the regular readers here, and for those who have a proper working knowledge of bible prophecy, this should come as no surprise.
