Is Our Latest Fight With Iran A Prophetic Sign of the Last Days?

Several articles claim that “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was the main force that pushed Trump into assassinating Iranian Major General Soleimani” because of his belief in the “rapture.” The articles often quote the following comment Pompeo made at a “God and Country Rally” on June 28, 2015.

Democracy as We Know It Does Not Work in Muslim Nations

The Middle East will never be made right by force. Competing Islamic groups often gain the trust of the United States only to turn on their benefactors once their sworn Islamic enemies are vanquished with the help of the US military. It happened when our embassy in Iraq was overrun

Timing Is Everything in the Olivet Discourse

I saw a post on Facebook related to the timing of prophetic events based on Jesus’ pronouncement to some of the disciples about the destruction of the temple (Matt. 24:1-2) and the judgment on Jerusalem that was to take place before their generation passed away (Luke 21:32). And [Jesus] said,

Jesus, the Bible, and Self-Defense in Light of Armed Church Members

In September of 2019, Joe Biden criticized a new Texas law that permitted church members to be armed while attending church services. It is irrational, with all due respect to the Governor of Texas, it’s irrational what they’re doing. … And we’re talking about loosening access to have guns? Being

Atheists Keep Getting More Consistent, Less Rational, and Hopeless

Marvin Olasky has a brief review of Michael Ruse’s new book A Meaning to Life. Don’t be fooled by the title, since according to Ruse there is no meaning to life Michael Ruse’s A Meaning to Life (Oxford, 2019) begins with atheistic honesty: “You are born. You live. Then you die. If

Mark Galli, an editor at Christianity Today, wrote the following about Pres.

The First Church of Christian Gnosticism

Many Christians believe and teach a form of factual neutrality where some subjects, for example, science, geography, politics, mathematics, can and should be taught without any regard to religion since “facts speak for themselves.” This is most evident in education where a self-conscious sacred-secular divide is maintained and supported by

The Birth of Jesus Was the Greatest Political Event in History

We don’t usually think of Christmas as a political event. I can assure you that Herod the Great thought of it that way as well as Rome. There was a tax involved (Luke 2:1). Herod would not have been troubled by an announcement that a child was born if he

Why a Wealth Tax Is Anti-Biblical, Immoral, and Destructive

Peter Daou is the former adviser to Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. In typical Marxist fashion, he asked this question: “Can you give me a good reason one person should have a BILLION dollars??” His question implies an answer. No one should have a billion dollars. There is a political

The Unintended Consequences of the Trump Presidency

Most people evaluating the Trump presidency focus on policy issues, the economy, and the courts. For conservatives, these are mostly favorable. The attacks on Trump have netted a boatload of unforeseen benefits, the major one being the exposure of the tactics of the Democrats to a watching world. They are

An Alabama Sheriff Gets it Right and Tells Atheists to Take a Hike

  An English teacher I had in high school was from Jasper, Alabama. That was an oddity for someone living in Pittsburgh, PA. We rarely if ever ran into a Southerner. A teenager visiting one of my neighbors mesmerized us with her Southern accent, especially the way she said “Norfolk.”

Once Christian Universities Now Bastions of Secularism

Colleges like Harvard, Yale, and Princeton were once bastions of Christian orthodoxy. Consider the following: Harvard’s earliest motto was In Christi Gloriam, “For the Glory of Christ.” One of Harvard’s early seals (1692) contained the Latin phrase Veritas (Truth) Christo (for Christ) Et Ecclesiae (and the Church). A group of ministers, who

Does the Bible Predict that There Will be a Future Rebuilt Temple?

Dispensational premillennialists need a future “tribulation temple” so their idea of antichrist can take his seat (2 Thess. 2:4), place a statue for people to worship (Rev. 13:14–15), and proclaim himself to be god (2 Thess. 2:4). But what the dispensationalists really need is a verse that states that there
