Help My Unbelief!

It is an episode fraught with mystery; one about which we wish we knew more. A man brought his son, who was possessed of a demon, to the Lord's disciples. He wanted the Master's men to cast out the evil spirit, but they could not. Jesus pinpointed the problem; the disciples' faith was lacking (Mark 9:17-19; cf. Matthew 17:20). Accordingly, ... read more »

Preaching to the Spirits in Prison

Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; in which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison, that aforetime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while ... read more »

King and Company Go Transdenominational

In a previous aricle, The Menace Of Radical Preterism , we discussed some of the identifying traits of a heretical movement that subscribes to the notion that (in the words of one of the dogma's advocates) "God accomplished the fulfillment of all [Bible] prophecy culminating in the destruction of the Jewish Temple in A.D. 70." This theory is variously known ... 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 »

Does the Bible Forbid a Woman to Wear Slacks or a Pant-Suit?

"Would you explain Deuteronomy 22:5. 'The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment for all who do so are an abomination unto the Lord your God.' Does this passage forbid a woman to wear slacks or a pant-suit?" A careful consideration of Deuteronomy, chapter 22, reveals a number ... read more »

Praying for the Dead

Whenever someone we love dies - in old age or tragically before their prime - our hearts cannot but anguish with those who are suffering soul-tearing losses. Some children have lost one or both parents. Husbands and wives have been robbed of loving mates. Others will never see brother or sister again. To describe separations like these as painful is ... read more »

Did Christ Abolish the Law of Moses?

"Some teach that Christians are not under obligation to keep the Sabbath day in this age. If that is the case, how is Matthew 5:17-18 to be explained? Did not Christ say that the law would not be destroyed; that it would last as long as heaven and earth?" In Matthew's record of what is commonly called, "The Sermon on ... read more »

Why Does Hebrews 8:13 Use the Present Tense?

"How does one reconcile the biblical statement that the law of Moses was 'abolished' by the death of Christ (Eph. 2:15), with a later passage (written long after the death of Christ) that seems to suggest that the Mosaic law was merely in the process of 'vanishing away' - that its end was only 'near' at that time (Heb. 8:13)?" ... read more »

The Tragedy of Pontius Pilate

Pontius Pilate has been enshrined forever in the cowards' Hall of Shame. Though he knew the charges against Jesus Christ were void of substance, because of his spineless politicism, he delivered the Son of God over to the rebellious Jews for crucifixion (see Mt. 27:15-26; Mk. 15:6-15; Lk. 23:13-25; Jn. 18:39-19:15). Were it not for the narratives of the New ... read more »

The Hope of Immortality

Throughout the many centuries of earth's history, rational men and women have entertained the belief that death does not terminate human existence. A commonly shared conviction, of course, does not necessarily provide proof of a proposition. Before the age of scientific investigation, vast multitudes believed the earth to be flat, but such a persuasion did not alter reality of our ... read more »
