Are Muslims Being Radicalized with the Qur’an?

U.S. government authorities and the media are talking about these Muslim terrorists being "radicalized." But they rarely explain how they are being radicalized other than perhaps to say that some imams at mosques are doing the radicalizing in their teaching. But hardly any of these government authorities and news outlets tell us what these Muslim clerics are teaching these terrorists and if it has anything to do with the Qur'an, the sacred text of Islam. It appears that they do not read the … [Read more...]

What Is the U.S. “Freedom of Religion”?

Donald Trump, Republican candidate for U. S. president, has called for the U.S. government to ban Muslims from traveling to or settling in the U.S. This new Trump proclamation has raised much outrage even by all of Trump's other Republican opponents running for president. They claim it is an infringement on religious freedom guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.Yes, the U.S. Constitution guarantees religious freedom, but the courts have qualified this privilege. For example, in a major ruling … [Read more...]

“The Doctrine of Imminence” Prevents Abolishing Guns

All of these wars, mass shootings and suicide bombers we learn about constantly in the news media causes me to think about my belief in world disarmament. I believe that before Jesus comes back, the world is going to disarm itself of not only all weapons of mass destruction, such as nuclear weapons, but all modern weapons as well, such as missiles, bombs, tanks, guns, etc. It will take quite some time to do and will require very sophisticated systems of survelliance. A nuclear war, perish the … [Read more...]

Two-State Solution Grows More Urgent Due to Population Figures

The peace process for solving the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict is dead. Many experts say the two-state solution also is dead. I say it is isn't dead, but the traditional two-state solution is dead. It is that the Palestinians establish a state in the two separated territories of the Gaza Strip and West Bank or a Swiss-cheese West Bank that skirts all of those 120 Jewish settlements in there that are illegal according to the UN, of which Israel is a member.This tradtional … [Read more...]

Is the Judeo-Christian Faith Monotheistic or Henotheistic?

In recent times, some Old Testament (OT) scholars have claimed that at least the early faith of the Hebrew people was henotheistic rather than monotheistic. There is some evidence in the Old Testament that seems to support this scholarly claim about the Hebrews being henotheists. Monotheism means there is only one god, whereas henotheism means there are multiple gods with one of them being chief of all. Some OT scholars claim the OT indicates that the Hebrews were henotheistic and that the later … [Read more...]

Why Don’t Christians Say “Most High (God)”?

Christians often identify their God by various titles attributed to him in the Bible. They call him "Lord," "Father," "Almighty," "Jehovah," "Yahweh," "El Shaddai," and "Jehovah Jireh" just to name a few. But you rarely hear them say, or see them write, "the Most High" or the like. Yet God is called in the NASB:"the Most High" 27x in the Old Testament and 5x in the New Testament "The Most High God" 6x in the Old Testament and 4x in the New Testament "God Most High" 5x  in the Old … [Read more...]

If ISIS Attacks the U.S., Then What?

ISIS, also known as the Islamic State, threatened yesterday in a video that he is going to attack the U.S. in Washington, D.C. ISIS has been predicting that it would attack certain major nations that are involved in attacking ISIS's military operations in its territories overtaken in Syria and Iraq. It predicted it would do so with Russia and France, and it has delivered only days later. ISIS's affiliate in the North Sinai claimed to have brought down the airliner in which all 224 passengers, … [Read more...]

Tom Wright Says Jesus Didn’t Know He Was God

I know Tom (N. T.) Wright of the UK. He is a most charming fellow and an engaging public speaker. He also is one of the top theologians in the world. Many of his peers would say he is the world's preeminent New Testament scholar. Tom Wright is also a Trinitarian.In Tom's book, The Challenge of Jesus: Rediscovering Who Jesus Was and Is (IVP, 1999), he states, "I do not think Jesus knew he was God" (p. 121). I think Wright is right about that. And he certainly is not alone; many distinguished … [Read more...]
