THE BIBLE & LOGIC IX

So what is the point of all this talk about “believing” and “obeying”? There is a particularly powerful OT passage about Abraham, so much that it is quoted three separate times in the NT (Rom. 4:3; Gal. 3:6; Jas. 2:23): “And [Abraham] believed in Jehovah, and [Jehovah] counted it to him as righteousness” (Gen. 15:6).

BLOCKBUSTER BIBLE (PT. 3)

As mentioned at the conclusion of Part 2, we will now look at a few simple details that ruin the imaginary doctrine of “dispensational premillennialism.” MATTHEW 24:34 This verse is the coup de grace of premillennial dogma. Notice these words of our Lord: “Verily I say to you, ‘This generation shall not pass away, till

BLOCKBUSTER BIBLE (PT.2)

THE LORD’S “SECOND” COMING (cont.) But there is more to this blockbuster epic than simply its supposed nearness. [Keep in mind that the items under this heading are the false claims of a false theology.] This “imminent” return (and all it includes) will be invisible/secret. A few verses are sufficient to break this one: “Then if

BLOCKBUSTER BIBLE (PT. 1)

Isn’t it exciting when we read or hear something that boggles our minds, and, sometimes, even stretches our imaginations, leaving us in a sense of wonder and awe? Of course, it is. This is why we read books, watch movies or television, or play video games—it is a mental escape from the here and now;

THE BIBLE & LOGIC VIII

Recently, we have seen this spiritual truth illustrated in both Testaments: In the holy, sovereign eyes of Jehovah God, to “BELIEVE” = to “OBEY.” We will now look at a final example further demonstrating this truth, found in Hebrews 3. In Heb. 3:7ff, the inspired writer is recounting some OT history—particularly how Jehovah had said He

THE BIBLE & LOGIC VII

The logical conclusion we drew from Num. 20:10-12 last week was this: TO “BELIEVE” = TO “OBEY.” But does the New Testament agree with this conclusion? Indeed, it does. Let us consider John 3:36, for instance: “Whoever BELIEVES IN the Son has eternal life; but whoever DISOBEYS the Son shall not see life…” It must be

THE BIBLE & LOGIC VI

So many times in the Bible, man is admonished or expected to “believe in” something or someone. In John 3:16, for instance, we are informed that whoever “believes in” Jesus Christ will have eternal life. Such statements seem as plain as could be—but are they? Here is the question we must ask: What does it

THE BIBLE & LOGIC V

One of the most popularly debated verses in the New Testament is Mark 16:16. After giving the great commission—that followers of Christ are to preach the gospel to all peoples as they go about in their everyday lives (15)—the Lord answers, as it were, an unspoken question: “OK, so as we are going and preaching the

THE BIBLE & LOGIC IV

“PROVE ALL THINGS; HOLD FAST THAT WHICH IS GOOD.” 1 THESSALONIANS 5:21 As we have emphasized in the last few installments, one of the keys to correct Bible interpretation is the use of valid logic and reasoning, just as we would (and do) in normal, everyday conversation. Consider, for instance, Acts 2:38: “And Peter said to them,

THE BIBLE & LOGIC III

“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” (1 Thess. 5:21). That’s what the apostle Paul admonished the Christians at Thessalonica to do. “Beloved, do not believe every spirit [i.e., teacher], but prove the spirits [i.e., teachers], whether they are of God [i.e., whether they are speaking the truth]” (1 John 4:1a). That’s what
