God’s Tactical Two-Step
April 26, 2017 - In Defense of the Faith
I’m currently writing a book about how God created our amazing universe, motivated by the fact that after ten years of serious study of both Genesis and modern science’s account I am regularly blown away by the fact that, like Sir Francis Bacon once said, “a little science estranges man from God; a lot of science brings him back". Meaning scientists do their science thing, but ultimately always end up where Genesis has been patiently waiting for science to catch up.
A Light in a Dark Place
April 24, 2017 - In Defense of the Faith
While one’s prophetic persuasion is not a primary issue a person’s salvation hinges upon, it does serve as an excellent weathervane of how a believer (or denomination) views all the other biblical doctrines.
On Sanctuary Cities

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40 ESV
The Seventh Kingdom
April 17, 2017 - Prophecy - Signs
Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.” Luke 4:5-7
Syria - Broken Beyond Repair
April 14, 2017 - War News
I debated about writing another article about Syria this week. By the time this is read the topic will have been exhausted. Others, much smarter than I am, have already offered their analyses. This is one of those frequent times I wish Jack Kinsella could offer me his astute observations.
The Second Woe
April 13, 2017 - Prophecy - Signs
After last week’s article about the First woe of Revelation, I received a private email from a friend who said he really never worries about the three woes; because he would not be here.
