A Question of Suicide

Since a person committing suicide can’t repent after the fact, can they end their life and still be saved? I am not insensitive to the fact that this question could be hurtful to those who lost someone to suicide. I also realize that the survivors of those who have taken their own life often have […]

Saved from East to West

Psalms 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. This ‘east to west’ reference is more than a map coordinate, for within this statement is a glorious promise that Jesus was to fulfill for you and for me. Why “east to west”? To guard against […]

My Journey Into Fulfilled Eschatology

I was a Dispensational Futurist for many years before changing my position to Fulfilled Eschatology. As a result, I fully understand how attending a Futurist church can program a person to think a certain way about “end time” events. Accordingly, I know a Futurist will think that my position is unbiblical—or even heretical—when it’s first […]

Dispensationalism is Less Than 200 Years Old

An interesting read in this Daily Beast article. There it says that both Dispensationalism and its “secret rapture” theory are “less than 200 years old.” This “secret rapture” theory is one of the eight dispensational theories in my $1000.00 offer. For years I offered $1000.00 to the first person that gave scriptures where any of eight Dispensational teachings I listed […]

$1000.00 For One Scripture That Says…

A biblical doctrine is not biblical unless it has biblical passages proving it is biblical fact. That may sound a little simplistic, and maybe even a bit of a tongue twister, but it is still the main rule to follow when rightly dividing God’s Word. Please, keep this in mind when reading through this $1000.00 challenge. Each of […]

War of the Words

“And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?” (Luke 10:25-26) The world is coming to an end. At least that is what they believed on the notorious night of October […]

A King for a king

Is Jesus currently a King? The following quote from Left Behind series author and Dispensational Pre-Tribulation advocate Tim LaHaye shows how some in Churchianity views this question: “When Jesus comes, He is going to be King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Could anyone even suggest that for these last 1,900 years Jesus has been Lord and […]

Explaining the Prince of Daniel 11

In an effort to say the prince found in Daniel 9:26 is “the antichrist” rather than Jesus Christ, some prophecy teachers use the negative descriptions of the prince found in Daniel 11 as their “proof text.” These teachers lose their argument however when it is shown that the prophecies found in Daniel 11 have already […]

A Thousand Years As One Day

The Bible does not say Peter’s “thousand years” statement is about a timetable foretelling the years found in a dispensation of time. In context his statement is clearly speaking of the limited time span of a man’s life, and reminding them that though they may think they have an eternity, because they are finite, they […]

Noah’s Flood was Worldwide, Not Local

The question whether Noah’s flood was localized or worldwide is answered in the Bible. There we find that Noah’s flood is said to have been deep enough to cover “all the high mountains under the whole heaven.” That would be impossible if the flood was only localized. But such depth would have caused a worldwide […]
