Real prophets are not always bad news. Oh, they have the unpleasant task of telling it like it is, telling us where we're wrong, calling upon us to change, and telling us what is going to happen when we don't. But at the end of the day, for a real prophet, there's hope. Last time, I pointed out some benchmarks to look for when you're reading the Ol…
 
One of the truly pivotal events of the New Testament church was a conference that took place some 18 years or so after the church began on the Day of Pentecost. It is often referred to as the Jerusalem Conference, and it seems odd in a way that it took this long for it to occur. By most accounts, the year was ad 49. What was at stake (and it is ast…
 
Love is a word we toss around so freely. With the realization that Jesus laid down everything he was going to be as a human being, and in the process suffered incredible shame, torment, torture, isolation—so that we might live—we see that God has not merely a love, but a passion for us. It's in the process of coming to know Jesus Christ, to know th…
 
I honestly don’t know what the founders of this nation believed about God. But I do have their words to go by. They signed their names—and pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor—to a document that began this way: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain una…
 
One of the strangest things about the Christian faith is that, somewhere back in the pages in history, most Christians forgot that Jesus was a Jew. Not only that, they forgot all his original disciples were Jews. And they forgot that the dominant authority for moral conduct, standards, practices, and worship was the Old Testament. There’s a really …
 
What in the world is God doing? I suspect there are those who would say, Not very much. The world looks like God wound it up, started it spinning, and then walked away from it. And if you should ask, How is the Gospel doing in the world, someone might reply, Not very well. After all, most of the world is not Christian, and never has been. All those…
 
Many years ago, before I learned better about arguing religion, I was engaged in a discussion focused on people who never even heard the name of Jesus anytime in their lives. How could it be right for God to torture these people forever? Tell me he is just going to leave them dead and we have one picture. Tell me he has arranged for their eternal t…
 
I take great comfort in the goodness of God—in his kindness, his compassion. Being able to rely on God's mercy means more than we could possibly say. But there are moments when I read the Bible that I feel a kind of chill, because there are two sides to this question. I've mentioned it before to it to you, and I know you understand this: God is not…
 
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15 51–52 KJV There is no idea more central to the Christian faith than the resurrection of the d…
 
For many generations in England, it was the custom that when a person in the village died the church bell would be rung. These were not just a single bell at these churches, they often had a combination of bells and a team of ringers who took pride in their work. And they had peals for different occasions: for every church season that came along, f…
 
The world hates the Jews. The world has always and will continue to do so. So says David Mamet in his book, The Wicked Son: Anti-Semitism, Self-Hatred, and the Jews. I have had my reasons why I think this is true, and I have advanced them on this program before. At its roots, the hatred of the Jews is really the hatred of God. Various reviewers of …
 
It is a small national conceit that Freedom is an American idea. Nor does Freedom owe its origins to the Greeks, either. Freedom is a singular Christian idea. I can say Christian because the roots of Christianity reach far back into the lives of the patriarchs of the Bible. And the idea of freedom, that lies deep in the desires of every man, was th…
 
I know everyone is interested in the Middle East, and trying to make sense out that muddle is no easy task. When you look to the Bible for some help, you get some surprising glimpses, often developed in ways unfamiliar to a Western reader. We sense that the Bible is trying to tell us something, but we have trouble putting it all together. The proph…
 
If you want to know about the last days one of the places you’ll naturally go looking is the Bible, and if you grab a concordance and do a search for the expression in the last days you will find exactly six occasions where the term is found, Old Testament and New. However, if you search the Hebrew phrase, you will find the expression some 13 times…
 
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV There are two things that need attention in this statement: This know also connects what he is saying with what he has just said—and we will need to talk about that. The word perilous, though, is not exactly what Paul said. Other translations render the Greek word he…
 
The ninth chapter of John contains an incident that is astonishing, to say the least. If is difficult for me to imagine why it happened, and why people ask some of the questions that they ask. Maybe a little historical perspective will help us to understand these events...توسط Ronald L. Dart
 
Predicting what is going to happen next in the Middle East is a fool’s game…or maybe perhaps a prophet’s task. Not being a prophet, and trying not to be a fool, it still seems necessary to look at what is going on there in the light of the Bible. Christian people pay close attention to what happens in the Middle East, for good reason. The reason gr…
 
And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and he shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. Rev…
 
And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him in the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no m…
