The Myth of the Flat Earth

Throughout our school years, most of us were taught Christopher Columbus wanted to sail around the earth in order to prove that it was round, and that for countless years before him, the establishment had maintained the earth was flat. However, this account is a gross misconception. The idea that most people in the 15th century thought the earth was flat was actually made up in the 1830s, yet this myth has since been used against Creationists ever since. Critics of Creationism continue to… Continue

The Apostasia of 2 Thess. 2:3 is the Rapture?

Although not widely accepted, there is a teaching that the "falling away" of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 refers to the rapture of the Church. I have encountered this particular viewpoint before, but in January 2010, I came across it again in a much broader format. It is an interesting effort to support the pretribulational rapture perspective.

Generally recognized as a teaching spread by E. Schuyler English during the 1950's (although it can be shown to date as far back as 1895), the central… Continue

Church Leaders: What Are We Building?

By help each individual come closer to realizing their full potential, they would be a success and the by-product would be a winning team.

My mind naturally went to Christianity and church. I asked my self a question: “Do we seek to build successful churches or to build people?” Jesus’… Continue

The Restrainer of 2 Thessalonians

In early 2010 I came across a post concerning the timing of our Lord's return in which the author presented the argument that since the text of Matthew 24 does not contain any specific reference to God's wrath, it could not, therefore, be a reference to the Great Tribulation. Although this was the first time I've ever encountered this particular line of reasoning, I understand that many people consider the Great Tribulation as being the Wrath of God. I have already commented on this particular… Continue

Will Your 2010 Goals Cost You?

Happy New Year. It is the beginning of 2010. Usually at this time we plan a fresh start – which is good. Many of us have made the resolutions, stated our goals and we are looking forward with anticipation to a better year. Yes, 2010 can bring a year of success if we are willing to do the one thing all goals have in common and that is – change.

It seems like it is a law somewhere, if I want to go up I must give up. To be different I have to do different. So if my goals challenge me to… Continue
