God’s Letter to the Churches

Are the letters to the Churches in Revelation pertinent to the times we live in?  Or were they a specific warning to these churches for a specific time in history? A proper understanding of Biblical prophecy shows us that they are both—a warning to the churches of John’s day and a warning to the churches […]

Other symptoms include the apparent paranoia and/or insecurity and self-centeredness […]

A little later on we are going to get an update from Julaine […]

Atonement scoffing spreads like rancid yeast

The growing move among the progressive Christians away from Jesus’ atoning work on the cross was a spark initially ignited by Brian McLaren a few years ago, and more recently promoted by Tony Jones and others. As you can see from the link to this article, this blasphemous idea is a quickly spreading leaven that […]
