Ignorance is no excuse. . .

May 26, 2011


The question goes like this: Will a person who dies, having never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ, go to heaven or hell? It is common thinking among modern Christians, that if a person dies without ever hearing the Gospel, then that person, in their ignorance, will be saved. That certainly sounds great, and I’m […]

Sorry Mr. Camping, It Won’t be October 21 Either!

May 24, 2011


I guess you’ve got to give Harold Camping credit for one thing, he won’t give up. Seriously, the man is a delusional false prophet, and I have seriously lost all sympathy for anyone who still follows him. His teachings are so full of errors, that my 9 year old son can pick them apart. The Bible […]

The Substance of Faith

May 24, 2011


One of the many problems that we face in the church today, is the limiting of the Bible to just spritual matters. Many in the church seem to have adopted the attitude that the church should only deal with the spiritual, while we leave everything else to others. The problem with that is the Bible […]

Why a May 21 Rapture would NOT be a good thing.

May 20, 2011


As a believer in the rapture, and one who looks forward to it, I have to make the following observations. First, let’s get one thing out of the way. The Bible makes it clear that we cannot know the timing of the rapture. In speaking of His return, Jesus said: Matthew 24:36 36 “But of […]

The Bible IS the Word of God, Pt. 4

May 19, 2011


In this final installment of “The Bible IS the Word of God” series, I will simply lay out some Old Testament prophecies concerning Jesus, and show you where they were fulfilled in the New Testament. This will be very straight forward. 1. Jesus would be of the tribe of Judah: Prophesied: Genesis 49:10 (NKJV) 10 The scepter shall […]

The Bible IS the Word of God, Pt. 3

May 16, 2011


In the previous 2 posts we’ve looked at the reliability of the texts, the believability of the authors, and had an overview of how to deal with contradictions. But even with all that, how do we really know that the Bible is the word of God? In this post, we will look at evidence that […]

The Bible IS the Word of God, Pt. 2

May 14, 2011


In the previous post I showed that that we have an accurate record of the original manuscripts, but what about the authors, were they honest? can we trust what they say? Are there errors or conradictions on the Bible? Well. . . the Bible itself says it can be trusted. Proverbs 30:5 (NKJV) 5 Every […]

The Bible IS the Word of God, pt. 1

May 12, 2011


How can we trust the Bible, is it really the Word of God? Is it trustworthy, or just a bunch of fables written by fallible men. Skeptics constantly attack the Bible and try to cast doubt on it, if not utterly destroy it. throughout the centuries, millions of copies of the Bible have been burned, […]

The May 21 Deception

May 10, 2011


Since we’re getting close to May 21, 2011, I figured I would address Harold Camping’s latest prediction. Surely everyone has heard by now, that according to Harold Camping, the world will end on May 21, 2011. First will be the rapture, and then the destruction of the earth by earthquakes. This might make an interesting […]
