A few years ago Hank Hanegraaff, the Bible Answer Man, came out as a Preterist. That theological aberration says all prophecy is past: It all happened in 70 A.D. We missed it! It’s actually history, not prophecy. Who knew?
To believe that then I’ve been studying something that is ancient history and offers no hope for the future. There is no Rapture and no Millennium. Nothing. Our “blessed hope” went up in smoke. We can only pour through the history books to learn that prophecy was fulfilled almost 2,000 years ago. This stretches credulity since one-third of the Bible — all references to things to come — is written in a futuristic tone.
Why wouldn’t the Bible clearly state we should look back and not to the future?
“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29 NKJV
I have watched as fellow Christians have torn into one another, slandered Christian brothers and sisters, tried to harm successful ministries, and behaved in such a manner that would result in the unbelieving world fleeing from them.
Added to this is a new contention online, particularly on social media. Disagreements over even minor issues often result in name-calling and denigrating one another. Whether the venue is YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter, the contentiousness is out of control.
There is very good reason to compromise in almost all situations where 2 parties have a dispute.
However, the 2 state solution in the Middle East – which sounds like such a logical compromise – is actually simply a capitulation to terror.
When only one side is willing to compromise and the other side is not even to discuss the idea of compromise, so you are not dealing with a compromise.
Get ready to have your heart thump as you watch one of the most unbelievable dramas unfold on the very same days that the United States celebrated the bicentennial of the United States of America – July 4, 1976.
It all started with 4 terrorists who boarded an Air France plane in Athens and hijacked an Air France plane to Entebbe, Uganda.
2017 ended with Bitcoin making daily headlines. If you’re not familiar with Bitcoin, it’s a specific type of cryptocurrency (a secure digital currency). It made daily headlines mostly due to the mania surrounding its steep rise in price.
Why are so many people euphoric about Bitcoin?
