Demons: Ancient Superstition or Historical Reality?

As one begins a perusal of the New Testament, he encounters an unusual phenomenon known as demon possession. The first Gospel writer recorded these words: And the report of him [Jesus] went forth into all Galilee: and they brought unto him all that were sick, holden with divers diseases and torments, possessed with demons, and epileptic, and palsied; and he ... read more »

Follow Christ or Go to Hell

I suppose "The Bliss of Following Jesus," would have been more of a positive title. Or maybe "The Benefits of Discipleship" would have been tactful. There is a time, however, for unmistakable clarity. Let me ask you this: if you have only three months to live without medical intervention, what do you want the doctor to say? If your child ... read more »

Ron Wyatt, the “Indiana Jones” of the SDA Church

Ron Wyatt (1933-1999) was a nurse-anesthetist in a hospital in Madison, Tennessee. At the age of 27 he saw a picture in Life Magazine of the Durupinar site - a large natural, boat-shaped formation - in eastern Turkey. Feverish speculation circulated that this could be the residue of Noah's Ark. This sparked Wyatt's interest, and was the beginning of a ... read more »

Jerry Falwell and the Antichrist

In January, 1999, nationally-known television evangelist, Jerry Falwell, spoke to a "pastor's conference" in Kingsport, Tennessee. One aspect of his speech was picked up by the news media and swirled into a mini-controversy.

A recent edition of USA Today contained an interesting survey that is worthy of some reflection. The following question was posed to adults across the nation: If you could get in contact with God directly, ask a question, and get an immediate reply-what would you ask? Here are the results: The highest percentage (34%) wants to know: "What is my ... read more »

Abraham – A Case of Old Testament Accuracy

The science of archaeology has been a rich benefactor to the Bible student. It has occasionally clarified obscure passages, and it has also frequently demonstrated that the biblical record bears the marks of genuine history. After Abraham settled in the hill country of Hebron, and Lot, his nephew, pitched his tent in the vicinity of Sodom, a confederation of Mesopotamian ... read more »

Was Potential Sin by Christ Prophesied?

The inspired writer of Hebrews (1:5) quotes a passage from 2 Samuel 7:14-"I will be his father, and he shall be my son." This is applied obviously to the Messiah. But the latter part of the verse in 2 Samuel 7:14 is somewhat confusing to me. The remainder of the verse says, "[I]f he commit iniquity, I will chasten him ... read more »

RU-486: Murder by Mouth

While feminists rejoiced and the news media exploited the story, many sensitive souls again hung their heads in sorrow on account of the ongoing slaughter of innocent babies in this country. "Abortion Pill Ok'd," the headlines shouted, and Gloria Feldt, president of Planned Parenthood (what a misnomer!) called it "an historic moment." The Food and Drug Administration had just handed ... read more »

Modernism and the Virgin Birth of Christ

John Dominic Crossan is no stranger to those who are familiar with modern attacks against the Bible. Crossan, a professor at DePaul University, has served as co-chair of the infamous Jesus Seminar-a conglomerate of infidelic, self-styled "intellectuals" who aim to create a "Bible" that conforms to their own faithlessness. Crossan, who has been called "the greatest scholar alive on the ... read more »

Jesus Christ: The First and the Last
