But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Eschatology is one of my favorite topics – if you haven’t guessed yet. Chances are that, if you’re reading this, it’s also true about you. Discussions about eschatology can be quite passionate and divisive. You might even say they’re often passionately divisive. Here...

Lord Come Soon

Written by

Lord, come quickly! Lord, come soon! How often have we uttered these exclamations? It seems to occur more often as I get older, and especially in times of anxiety. In Revelation we read… I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown. Rev 3:11 ESV He who...

Praying For Pastors

Written by

Some time ago I watched a Q & A session between pastors. One question centered on leaving a particular church over doctrinal error. I thought the advice was very good. Yet I was surprised no one suggested praying for their pastors. I’m sure they thought it was a given. Praying for pastors...

Spirit And Truth Ministry

About eleven or so years ago I came across a Conservative Theological Society article written by Dr. Mal Couch. At the end of that article, he recommended several fine websites for further study. One of them was Spirit And Truth. At first I thought it was an odd name for a Christian website –...

Israel Punching Bag

Written by

The corporation I once worked for drummed into us the inevitability of change: “Get used to it.” They meant company re-structures. Some things never change, though. Israel will always be a punching bag. Maybe it was because it was around the time of International Holocaust Remembrance...

How Far the Tribulation?

Written by

How far are we from the tribulation? Well, as I’ve often pointed out in the past, there’s a large body of difference and debate among premillennialists regarding what “the Tribulation” means. This is a theme which has been on my mind for a while now. So, I’ll begin by...

Psalm 13 – How Long, O Lord?

Have you ever cried David’s words from Psalm 13 – How long, O Lord?  Does God ever seem distant, as if He’s not listening to you? Often I feel that way! It might be health concerns, depression or financial worries. Depending on where you live in this world, it could even be...

Discernment Ministry Bullies

Written by

Don’t get me wrong, we all need discernment. I have a love-hate relationship with certain Discernment Ministries. By their very nature they look for fires to put out. Sadly, in their zeal, they sometimes end up being spiritual bullies. In some cases they end up as a vigilante, heresy-hunter...
