We need to stop presidents from taking their constitutional oath with their hand on the Bible, swearing before God that they will uphold the Constitution all the while knowing they won’t. Their campaigns and policies tell us that they will not follow the Constitution to the letter. The Constitution is
Michael Brown has published a good article on abortion and the Bible: “Are There Really Verses in the Bible That Support Abortion?” It’s worthwhile reading. It’s a relatively short article and covers a lot of ground. He writes the following about a critical text about abortion: The question, then, is
A few years ago, I wrote a series of articles about Ray Comfort’s comments on Bible prophecy. You can read them here, here, here, and here. I spoke with Ray about his views on prophecy. He was receptive to my critique and told me that he would not be addressing
Margaret Atwood, the author of The Handmaid’s Tale (1985) that’s in its third TV season on Hulu, is a radical secularist and abortion advocate. This is how Wikipedia describes the plotline of the series: In the near future, fertility rates collapse as a result of sexually transmitted diseases and environmental
One way to avoid the kingdom implications of the prayer that Jesus tells us to pray is to claim that presently it’s a spiritual kingdom that will only have substantive, this-world manifestation sometime in the future, either in an earthly millennium or the inauguration of the New Heavens and the New Earth. This way, it’s safe to pray the prayer Jesus wants us to pray since there’s nothing anyone has to do about the kingdom since it is solely the work of God. We can only pray that it comes, that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Try that with the bread portion of the Lord’s Prayer and see how long you last.
Pro-abortionists don’t seem to realize that one of the reasons bullying is so prevalent today is because they’ve cheapened life. Life is on a continuum from conception to death. Where on that continuum is it wrong to abuse someone? Only after the baby is born? Who says?
Dehumanization is covered by the veneer of science. Children are being taught they are animals related to other lesser animals. If you go back far enough, we can trace our origin to a soup of chemicals where the fight for survival made us what we are today. It’s all so scientific.
How does the modernist create a moral center in the Darwinian struggle for life? The usual answer is “doing good” that benefits the species. Being kind, for example, has a good result. But is this always true? How does anyone know?
The Apostle Paul writes in his second letter to Timothy: Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all, just
The prohibition against homosexuality is confirmed by Paul in at least three places (Rom 1; 1 Cor. 6; 1 Tim 1:10). How could a “church goer” be ignorant of these clear statements from the NT?
Climate alarmism is becoming climate fanaticism and extremism. In order to sell the belief that Earth is doomed so that governments can expand their taxing authority and power, outrageous claims are being made. Unfortunately, many people don’t know how to evaluate evidence. If enough authorities say something is true, then
In Pastor John MacArthur’s anti-Culture Wars video, he said the following: “I don’t think it matters if you go to hell as a policeman or a prostitute. What matters is that you are going to hell!” Preaching the gospel so people won’t go to hell is the priority. The question
There is no excuse anymore for not getting history right. A simple search on the internet will set the record straight on most historical matters. The Bible requires two witnesses. This is no less true when investigating the claims of history when politicians and special interest groups are trying to
Here we go again. Democrats are appealing to the Bible to support one of their policies. Here’s what New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said about a bill she is co-sponsoring with Bernie Sanders: Usury — aka high interest — happens to be explicitly denounced in the Bible (& in many other
Norma McCorvey was the Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade. After converting to Christ and the pro-life position (about 15 years after the Supreme Court decision), she proclaimed to the world that the whole case had been based on lies. Chief among the lies was that she was raped (gang-raped at that), and that was why she needed an abortion.
In an earlier article (“Christian Lawyer and Church Elder Says Christians Must ‘Surrender to Unbelievers at Every Level’”) I dealt with comments made by Carlos Chung who argued that “As soldiers of Christ, we are to surrender to unbelievers at every level.” Chung’s article appears on “The Master’s Seminary Blog.”
I saw an article posted on Facebook with the title “We Must Surrender.” It was written by Carlos Chung who serves as an elder at Grace Community Church in the Mainstream fellowship group and is a lawyer. The article is badly argued and dangerous. Here’s how it begins: As soldiers
In Paul Dallas’ novel The Lost Planet, a story about how two teenagers avert a war between their home planets, the main characters learn a crucial military lesson. The scene takes place just before the teenager from Earth boards a spaceship and travels to the distant planet Poseida: As he
