Christian PGA Tour Pros Are Winning

In the last four tournaments on the PGA Tour, three of them have been won by Christian pros who attend the weekly PGA Tour Bible Study. They are Bubba Watson (second Masters win at Augusta, GA), Matt Kucher (RBC Heritage at Hilton Head Island, SC), and yesterday J.B. Holmes (Wells Fargo at Charlotte, NC). I can't remember if that has ever happened.I'm a fan of J.B. Holmes. I live in Scottsdale, Arizona, where the Waste Management Phoenix Open is played early every year at the TPC Stadium … [Read more...]

The U.S.-Brokered Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process Is a Disaster

I believe the Jews had a right to return to the land of Israel and settle there. It was the proper and just way to settle the so-called "Jewish Problem." What's that? The Romans threw Jews out of their land, and they dispersed throughout much of the world, called The Diaspora. There, in Gentile lands, they endured much unjust persecution and thus suffering. The worst was the Nazi Holocaust in WWII. That demonstrated that Jews should be able to return to their ancestral land.But I also … [Read more...]

Is the “Jesus’ Wife Fragment” a Forgery?

Karen L. King is a distinguished professor at Harvard Divinity School who specializes in the study of early Christianity and Gnosticism. Two of the books she has authored are entitled The Gospel of Mary Magdala. She claims Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene on the basis of a Gnostic Gospel of Mary discovered in Cairo, Egypt, in 1896. That gets Christians riled up because the New Testament gospels don't say any such thing.In September, 2012, Dr. Karen King delivered a paper at a gathering at … [Read more...]

Be Careful What You Say in Private

I'm a NBA fan. This week, the NBA (National Basketball Association) had its worst crisis in decades. Billionaire Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers NBA team, was punished drastically for making some private, disparaging remarks about people of color, specifically African-Americans and Latinos. Yet he makes mucho money as an NBA team owner, in which African-Americans constitute nearly 85% of all NBA players. Plus, his coach is well-liked African-American Doc Rivers.American … [Read more...]

Hamas Should Now Rename “Palestine” According to Antiquity

A significant event happened this week concerning the never-ending Israeli-Palestinians conflict. On Wednesday, Fatah, which leads the Palestinian National Authority (PA), and Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, signed a reconciliation agreement to join forces within the next five weeks in forming a national unity government. If it happens, it will be a big deal that will substantially change the landscape in this conflict.For one thing, it will cause the U.S. to rethink it foreign aid to … [Read more...]

Did Jesus Indicate He Was God to the Rich Young Ruler?

Many people know about Jesus saying to a rich young man, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (Mark 10.25). The man elicited this remark from Jesus by addressing him as “Good Teacher” (v. 17). Jesus replied, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone” (v. 18).In the past, church fathers and many subsequent traditionalist Christians (believe Jesus is God) have insisted Jesus here implied he was God. Their ob … [Read more...]

Is Jesus God? A Brief Look at the Main Bible Verses

Ever since the 4th century, the institutional church has always officially proclaimed that Jesus of Nazareth was and is fully God, and it has usually added that anyone who denies this is not a genuine Christ. Yet in Jesus’ gospel sayings in the New Testament (NT), he never claims to be God. The few NT texts the institutional church has cited in asserting that Jesus is God are mistranslated or misinterpreted, partly because most of them have grammatical difficulties. Let’s briefly examine these te … [Read more...]
