    1948 - A Road to Nowhere.

    The futurist crowd all claim the the 1948 "return" of Israel to the land was the fulfillment of the Mosaic promises in the bible - promises that waxed old with the end of the covenant in 70AD and supposedly a fulfillment of "fig tree parable" And even if those Mosaic promises were still...

    According to some God can't tell time!

    Yep, we have people - "futurologists" effectively claiming God can't tell time. They claim when God through his prophets and apostles made time statements he didn't mean what he said and these statements can be elasticized into what ever theology suits your futuristic fulfillment can dream...

    A Tale of Two Cities - Or Just the One?

    The identity of the whore in the book of Revelation is claimed by many as the Roman Catholic church and this was the view of early protestant reformers in one of their justifications of the split with Rome. But does the description of the whore in the book of Revelation match the RC church...

    Age of the Oyth

    Rise of Young Earth Creationism Although many Christians were concerned about the implications they found in Darwin’s theory of evolution, by the end of the nineteenth century very few Christian authors argued for a young earth. Enthusiasm for this was largely confined to the Seventh-day...

    New Heavens and Earth?

    It is important to have a correct understanding of the terms "heavens and earth" when used figuratively in the bible or the theology we believe will be all over the place and essentially wrong. There are a number of NT statement where the terms "heaven and earth" appear including: (Mat 5:18...

    The breaking of the power of the Holy People

    Interestingly the futurists are at a loss to understand just who the holy people are in the Old Testament - some of them think it's the Roman Church. They try and fit the "time, times, and an half" anywhere in history other than where it belongs - the 1st century AD. (Dan 12:7 KJV) And I...

    Physical death or spiritual death?

    (Gen 2:17 KJV) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. So what happened "in the day that thou eatest"?
