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."

Have You Checked Those Numbers Lately?

Many people are "numbers-conscious" these days. We keep an eye on that blood pressure. It should be under 130/85. We watch our cholesterol; it ought be below 200.
