Rehoboam Revisited

When King Solomon died, it was assumed by the Hebrews that Rehoboam, his son, would ascend to the throne to reign over the twelve tribes of Israel. But God had another plan (see 1 Kings 11:26ff). Due to the wickedness of his people, most of the kingdom (ten tribes of the twelve) would place their loyalty in a different direction-with ... read more »

California High Court Wrong Again

The California Supreme Court again has demonstrated what an inept conglomerate of jurists it is. In an August 18th decision that once more assaults religious freedom, the court came down with a "wrong," not "right," decision. In its unanimous judgment, the Court determined that doctors may not refuse, on a religious basis, to artificially inseminate lesbians who want to bear ... read more »

Is America Too Big to Fail?

For the past year or more of campaigning, we have been bombarded daily with news about our nation's terrible economic condition. Here in California, we've seen our property values plummet and our fuel prices soar to record levels over the summer. Now our unemployment rates are skyrocketing and our state government is on the brink of bankruptcy due to overwhelming ... read more »

Those “Testimonies” Regarding Miracles

They flow from my computer and across my desk. I am speaking of those "testimonies"; testimonies that detail the most incredible "supernatural experiences" imaginable. These experiences supposedly have happened to the correspondents personally or, more often than not, to someone they know, or about whom they have heard. One gentleman tells of the time when his father accidentally cut off ... read more »

National Security — The Real Solution

Those conversant with the Scriptures are surely aware of the fact that God expects individuals to strive for personal righteousness. What is not so well-known, however, is the fact that Jehovah demands a certain level of righteousness for nations as well. "Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people" (Prov. 14:34). David exclaimed: "The wicked shall ... read more »

Steve Allen’s Attack upon the Bible

Steve Allen was an accomplished composer (he wrote somefour thousand songs). He was also a popular comedian (having hosted The Tonight Show and The Steve Allen Comedy Hour). While these accomplishments have been rehearsed in light of his recent death, few recognize that he was a humanistic philosopher of sorts. He had a vengeance toward the Bible that may be ... read more »

Life and Death Ethical Issues

Solomon once observed that there is "a time to be born, and a time to die" (Eccl. 3:2). Dying, which ultimately is the price tag attached to human rebellion (Gen. 2:17; Rom. 5:12), is man's final earthly experience. It shuts the door to this-world activity (Eccl. 9:6; Heb. 9:27)-the views of many fanciful speculators to the contrary notwithstanding-and opens vistas ... read more »

Before I Die: An Excerpt

The final recorded words of a person generally are perceived to be of keen interest. Particularly is that so when the individual is of considerable prominence. Paul, God's chosen apostle to the Gentiles, wrote thirteen known books of the New Testament. His final composition was the second letter to Timothy. The fourth chapter of that epistle contains a concluding exhortation ... read more »

Who Was John the Baptist?

"Who was John the Baptist? And what was his relationship to Jesus?" His name was divinely given. It was to be "John" (Lk. 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying "Jehovah is gracious." He was known familiarly as "the Baptist" (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means "an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion" ... read more »
