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

THE BIBLE & LOGIC II

God blessed mankind with two immutable gifts (among many others): 1.  Objective reasoning; 2.  The ability to reason objectively. Since such is the case, obviously God had a reason for giving man the gift of reason. That reason is simply this: He expects us to use it! Yes, God expects and require that we abide by

THINGS JESUS AND HIS APOSTLES NEVER SAID

When we open the New Testament, we have the blessing of reading two invaluable things: 1. The inspired record of the things Jesus did and taught. 2.

Hence, “the gift of languages.” But there is more. In 1 Corinthians 14, over half of the chapter is

WHAT ABOUT “TONGUE-SPEAKING”? (PT. 1)

What does it mean to “speak in tongues”? Most would likely say “tongues” are languages that are unknown to the human race, and that only God (and perhaps angels) can understand. But they would be wrong. The first thing we must understand is that the word “tongue” is simply a synonym for “language.” Thus, to

GOD’S 5-POINT CHECKLIST FOR RELIGIOUS UNITY

What is religious unity? Many would say that the essence of “religious unity” is “agreeing to disagree,” or getting along despite your differences. Well, God is certainly a proponent of “getting along” despite differences (cf. Rom. 12:18); but He is NOT a proponent of “agreeing to disagree” in matters of religion. In The Test of
