Pope Francis Will Sign a Treaty with the Palestinian State

YES! Pope Francis, on behalf of the Vatican, is going to sign a treaty with the Palestinian State, that is, the Palestinian Authority, thus verifying the existence of a Palestinina state and further endorsing it.Wake up United States of America, which is against this! Smell the roses. My country's government has always been on the wrong side of history regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. What do I mean?Although the U.S. has always been Israel's chief ally, which I fully endorse … [Read more...]

What Did Jesus Mean by “Paradise”?

When examining a particular gospel saying of Jesus, we should not only consider its immediate context but also anything else Jesus’ said about that subject or some specific word in his New Testament corpus, that is, in his entire gospel sayings. An example is Jesus’ pronouncement about the word “Paradise” to one of the two men who were crucified with him.All four New Testament gospels record that Jesus was crucified between two other men (Matt. 27.38; Mark 15.27; Luke 23.33; John 19.18).

Two Jihadist Muslims from Phoenix Are Dead

I live in metro-Phoenix, USA. The two young Muslim men who were shot and killed in Garland, Texas, Sunday evening were from Phoenix. They shared an apartment here. Texans are known for protecting their liberty and independence. I know; I lived in metro-Houston for nearly 40 years. But I think hosting such an exhibit was foolish and just invited trouble. And it caused two even more foolish men to forfeit their lives.Nadir Sooti (34) and Elton Simpson (30) drove a car into theMuhammed Art … [Read more...]

Was the Apostle Paul a Cessationist?

But I began my theological education in a Bible church when I was an eighteen-year old freshman in college. At my new church, I soon learned about spiritual gifts in the New Testament (NT). They are listed as follows: Romans 12.6–8; 1 … [Read more...]

The Death Penalty for Intentional Homicide is Right

Pope Francis is being hailed widely as a breath of fresh air for the Roman Catholic Church. There are a lot of things I like about him. But his view of capital punishment for intentional homicide is not one of them. He calls for the end of it. Many Christians agree. The European Union has outlawed it. European lawmakers want to inflict harm on the U.S. and many of its state governments for their laws about first degree murder that require the death penalty. I think anyone who professes to be a … [Read more...]
