Herd Mentality Prevents Herd Immunity

Herd mentality.  This could also be called mob mentality.  In the Bible, mobs are referred to as rabble or riff-raff.  They’re always stirring up trouble and inciting violence or discontent.  We see them in various places. Numbers 11:4 The riff-raff that were in their midst had a strong desire; and the Israelites turned back and…

Gathered & Scattered

The idea of people being scattered and gathered is prominent in the Bible for better and for worse, although God has seemingly preferred scattering because of man’s rebellious spirit.  This isn’t intended to be an exhaustive study, but the contrasts provide a different view of the story of mankind and the church. The first two…

The Dark Light of a False Spirit

Have you ever wondered in reading Luke 11:33-36 what a dark light is?  What does Jesus mean in speaking of a light being darkness? “No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. Your eye is…

Pandemic! Martial Law! Close the Churches!

Just think if Hillary Clinton was president at this moment in time.  Can you imagine the response from the Leftist-Socialist-Marxist crowd given this crisis?  As Rahm Emmanuel famously said, they should never let a crisis go to waste. President Trump over these last several years has been roundly criticized for wanting to close our borders. …

Scoffers & Mockers Then & Now

Back in Ezekiel’s day, he faced much scoffing and mocking when he brought forth the Word of the Lord.  Despite being so faithful to God and being a conduit for many messages to the Israelites, their constant scorn of God’s prophetic Word had to weigh on Ezekiel.  To reassure him, God spoke extensively about those…

Antichrist’s Covenant with Israel & The Catholic Church

Original thinkers appeal to me—those who think out of the box.  Some of this ilk naturally end up far-afield and are completely wrong.  Others go against the grain of doctrine, i.e. what we know because that’s what we’ve always believed.  But, as Dr. Michael Heiser, one of my favorites in this thinking out-of-the-box category says:…

Whom Will God Rapture? – The Philadelphia Church

Have you ever heard someone say, “God is a gentleman; He would never force someone into heaven who doesn’t want to go?”  If that’s true, and many of us believe it is, then why do we insist that God will force Christians (i.e. those who are truly saved versus those who simply consider themselves Christians),…

Martyrdom & NAR

Because of the ten years I’ve been associated as a volunteer with Voice of the Martyrs (VOM), I’ve gotten a perspective of the church and of Jesus Christ that, frankly, few Christians are privileged to witness.  In this time, I’ve read the classic book by Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured For Christ, a couple of times and…

Marijuana & This Present Darkness

For those of you who have read This Present Darkness, you may have seen what author Frank Peretti wrote about so vividly enter your own communities.  The novel depicts the town of Ashton that has been targeted by dark forces that intend total domination.  It portrays spiritual, geographical, territorial entities that control this community combatted…

The Romans 1 – Genesis 6 Connection

Have you ever read Romans 1 and wondered why Paul wrote verses 18-32 in the past tense?  If you’re like me, you may have thought that he was simply describing our future—now current—condition in that manner simply as a literary convention.  But in thinking about this recently, I no longer think that’s the case.  I…
