I’ve often wondered, why would God order His people to gaze upon an idol of bronze in order to attain their salvation from death? Surely with the swift and decisive manner in which God dealt with the idolatry of the Israelites He wouldn’t then order Moses to make an idol and have the people look to it for healing – would He? After years of never having a really satisfactory answer for this conundrum, I sort of wrote it off as just “one of those things”. God is God. Far be it from me to question His decisions and methods. And how wrong I turned out to be. The answer was there all along; and once I understood it, it really opened up my eyes to the truth and glory of God’s Word!
Flat earthism (FE) has reemerged with passionate momentum as of late – especially in Christian circles. No longer relegated to the dregs of society – FE has been reintroduced, and accepted, by a broad contingent of believers here in the 21st century. Many Bible believers are emphatically stating that the Bible is a “flat earth book”; and since they rightly believe the Bible is the Word of the Living God, they are unwilling to budge on the topic.
Somewhere in the 18th and 19th centuries, a new flat earth doctrine was established and adopted by certain members of society, and has remained on the fringes ever since. With advances in science, technology, and exploration in the 20th and now 21st centuries, these people are extremely few and far between – until now. Let’s investigate some of the claims made by leading flat earth apologist Mark Sargent.
The most concerning evolution that HRM has experienced, is a bolder and more brazen proclamation that Jesus Christ is not divine, and is not God. This position has been suspected of by HRM watchdogs and skeptics, but has traditionally been carefully avoided and answered in ambiguous ways, as not to indict the HRM respondent. However, lately it seems that it is no longer necessary to be vague when addressing this issue, and HRM purity can be preserved while denying the divinity of Christ.

As the truth seems to get more and more diluted with every passing day, giving way to doctrines of man and devil alike, let us examine another resurgent phenomenon being promulgated among the self-proclaimed “spiritually sensitive” out there – channeled messages.
One of the key passages upheld by Hebrew Roots apologists feature the words of Christ Himself in Matthew 5:17-18. Let’s take a look at this passage, and break it down so that we can see and understand what is truly being said here by our Lord.
As we have discussed recently, the Hebrew Roots (HRM) doctrine holds a different view. One could summarize it as a form of “reverse replacement theology” where it is Israel who displaces the church. The HRM teaches that Gentiles who become saved must abide by the laws of Moses established by the Sinaitic or the Mosaic covenant. This view is equally flawed as compared to replacement theology. The term we have established for clarity is “Displacement Theology” to describe this view.
Several new (old?) doctrines have begun taking new life among the Christian community, and have caught fire in some circles, being hailed as a modern spiritual awakening of sorts. Among these, is the Hebrew Roots doctrine. As with any doctrine, only holding it against the light of scriptural scrutiny can tell us whether it is sound, or false teaching.
It’s typically not the aim of this blog to engage in the roiling cauldron of current social dialogue; however, the implications of the fallout in the wake of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) signed into law by Governor Mike Pence last week demands addressing.
As the world watches the aftermath of the recent Islamic terrorist attack in Paris, the latest installment of such attacks courtesy of a faith known more for its blood lust than its goodwill, a similar theme has emerged within the worldwide media.
A strange and interesting prophecy is uttered by Jesus in Matthew 24:28, that has been the subject of much scholarly debate and conjecture: “For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”
For centuries, readers of the Bible have pondered the mark of the beast and his number 666. Today, innovation closes in on what this really is.
This article will demonstrate why I believe that when it is said that a third of the Earth’s population is Christian, it is in reality much less than that. Such a loose definition of Christianity attempts to be inclusive of beliefs that do not comply with God’s Word.
From an early age, we are taught the idea that America was founded on Christian principles and reverence to God. However, it is becoming more and more evident that this was not the case. Consider what the Great Seal reveals about America’s roots.
The notion that Genesis 6 ‘sons of God‘ is a reference to ‘the sons of Seth’ is surprisingly popular despite the fact that the Bible is replete with evidence that the sons of God in Genesis 6:1-4 were fallen angels…
