Stephen Hawking Is Boycotting Israel’s Conference, and I Would Too

The world's most famous, atheistic physicist is protesting Israel's mistreatment of Palestinians by boycotting a major, international science conference to be held there next month. That seems inconsistent to me, since he has already visited Israel four times. I've been boycotting Israel for the same reason for over thirty years, and I've been consistent about it. But then, who cares! No one's asking me to come there.In about 1980, I discovered in some Old Testament prophecies that there … [Read more...]

And Paul wrote similarly in a later letter to … [Read more...]

If Jesus Emptied Some of His Deity, He Could No Longer Be in the Trinity

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians at Philippi, exhorting them to be humble and love one another (Philippians 2.1-4). Then he added what all modern scholars insist is a pre-existing hymn that probably was known to his readers and whose composer remains unknown to us. Paul introduces this hymn by telling readers, “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus” (v. 5 NASB). Then he relates this hymn about Jesus as follows: “who, although He existed in the form of God, did no … [Read more...]

If God Is Three Persons That’s Rather Odd, Since We Were Made in the Image of God.

Most Christians believe in the church doctrine of the Trinity, that God is one essence consisting of three co-equal and co-eternal Persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. Many cite three passages in the book of Genesis as their primary Old Testament (OT) support for the Trinity: Genesis 1.26; 3.22; 11.7. And they often refer to them when asserting that Jesus preexisted. These texts are as follows:1.26 “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our li … [Read more...]
