God & Evil

Every once in a while, people will say that I make God the creator of evil and therefore I make God evil. I think that’s a weird accusation. To me, it’s silly to think that God created this world with no thought or intention of evil being present. Clearly He knew it would be present […] […]

King’s Dates

Here are the dates I used to calculate the reigns of kings for my Bible Timeline. I bet there are more precise dates out there (Dr. Floyd Nolen Jones comes to mind), but these are the ones I used. Title Person Status Birth Year Death Year Year Start Year End Duration Age Start Age End References King Saul B 1051 1011 40 King David G 1040 1011 971 40 35.5 70.5 King Solomon G 989 971 931 40 17 57 King N Rehoboam B 972 914 931 913 17 41 58 King N Abijah B 913 911 3 King N Asa B 911 870 41 King N Jehoshaphat G 908 848 873 848 25 35 60 King N Jehoram (Joram) B 853 841 12 ; King N Ahaziah B 841 841 1 Queen N Athaliah B 841 835 7 King N Joash […] […]

KJVONLY: The One and Only?

Let me start by saying that I’m fully convinced that the KJV is an excellent translation. Especially if you live in the 17th century. But I have yet to meet a human being that lives in the 17th century, and I don’t know anyone who speaks the Goode King’s English in daily conversation. So if […] […]

On Women and Head Coverings

I find it interesting that is pretty clear that women should wear head coverings when praying or prophesying, yet in Western culture, the overwhelming majority of women do not obey this. Compared to African cultures, and the churches I’ve been to over there, the overwhelming majority of women do obey this. Now why would […] […]

What Would Rahab Do?

I think I might get a TShirt that says “What Would Rahab Do?” Suppose you felt God calling you to be a missionary in a country hostile to Christianity. After saving up your hard earned money for a plane fare, you head out for the hinterlands. When you get off the plane, the immigration officer hands […] […]

Biblical Models for Dating and Marriage

These days, it seems that every other church is trying to re-invent “dating” so as to align themselves with Biblical models for relationships. But the advice you get from these different churches varies far and wide. Will the real Biblical Model please stand up?? I’m happy to announce that we were doing this before it was […] […]

From Adam to Moses…

Bible Trivia: If Adam wrote a book on his life, his memoirs, how the universe was Created, and more, it’s only reasonable to believe that he would have passed this book on to his kids. Or great-grand kids. And it’s only reasonable to conclude that this would have made its way to Moses. So… given these […] […]

The Roman “O”s

Perhaps you’ve heard of the Roman Road? How about the Roman “O”s? Start in and observe the downward spiral of man because he rejects God (1), his guilt by conscience and law (2-3), his failure to access right standing with God by his own works (4), the stain of Adam (5), the punishment of death […] […]

The Power Against Persuasion

Regardless of your view on a particular issue, it’s always possible to find someone who holds a view that is opposite yours. And sometimes you can even find a verse or two that is opposite your opinion. As the old saying goes, to every PhD, there’s an equal and opposite PhD. So… How many verses would […] […]

Infant Faith?

In discussing abortion and infant death, we invariably come around to asking “What’s going on in the womb?” and “Do babies go to heaven?” While science cannot answer the second question, it can give us some information about the first. Science tells us when the brain is formed, when the heart starts beating, what the […] […]
