Easter time is upon us. The big day is less than two weeks away. Each year, as Easter approaches, I wonder about Christians and their attitude toward Christianity. I have these thoughts because Easter makes Christianity an all-or-nothing proposition, and many claiming Christianity try to walk in the middle of the road. Allow me to … Continue reading Is Easter Important Or Meaningless?
What Is Truth?
As a child, I remember adults discussing how "politicians lie all the time." As a younger adult, I remember people saying, "Politicians will say anything to get elected." I have always been a news junkie, and as I have grown into my senior years, it is apparent that those in my younger years were correct. … Continue reading What Is Truth?
The Next Full Moon
As I was up before sunrise this morning, I gazed at the full moon in the western sky - the last full moon of winter. I could not help but think of the next full moon, the first of the spring season marking the coming of Easter. My mind went back two thousand years and … Continue reading The Next Full Moon
Faith and Truth
Eternal salvation comes through faith, by grace. Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." The Bible explains that everyone is a sinner, and the washing away of sin can only happen by the … Continue reading Faith and Truth
The Tribulation (Part I)
Last week's Preacher's Point talked of Biblical prophecies yet fulfilled. Space only allowed us to reach the start of the Tribulation Period. This seven-year period is the topic of this week's column. The Tribulation begins when the Antichrist signs a covenant with many nations concerning the city of Jerusalem and the Jewish people (Daniel 9:27). … Continue reading The Tribulation (Part I)
The Reason For The Season
More than likely, you have heard the phrase, "Jesus is the reason for the season," about Christmas. I beg to differ. Looking in the mirror, you will see the reason for Christmas. The previous paragraph will cause some anger with some people, but before you write that nastygram, let us take a step back and … Continue reading The Reason For The Season
What Is Armageddon?
A word used too loosely nowadays is Armageddon. It seems like anything big or significant and unpleasant is some sort of "mageddon" event, such as snowmageddon and retail-mageddon. The recent threat of nuclear war has brought the idea of Armageddon happening to mainstream thinking. A global nuclear war would be the worst event thus far … Continue reading What Is Armageddon?
The Probable Sequence of Events.
Often people will grab a current event and claim it is something from the book of Revelation. Anything in Revelation from chapter four on is, at this present time, still future. Therefore, when someone claims that a current event is Revelation (choose chapter and verse), well, unless we just went through Revelation 4:1-2, it is … Continue reading The Probable Sequence of Events.
King Solomon built the first Jewish Temple. When completed, a dedication ceremony took place. At the ceremony, the Hebrews made sacrifices. The Bible tells us, "the people offered sacrifices before the LORD" and that "king Solomon offered a sacrifice..." (2 Chronicles 7:4-5). The Bible does not tell us how many people came with a sacrifice. … Continue reading Bible Bloodbath
I have friends that believe God will answer any prayer of faith asked of Him in the affirmative. My initial response to that is, "Take a look at the graveyard." How many people in those tombs died while someone was praying for their healing? Our Christian terminology also plays a role in how we look … Continue reading Unanswered Prayer
