"My pastor doesn’t tell us how to vote! What he does is give out a score card that describes what the issues are [remember that phrase!] and then shows what each candidate stands for. But then he tells us to make up our own minds!" Anyway, that's the word on the street. Let’s look at two... Continue Reading →
No commentary necessary
Here is a snapshot of one and the same website, once in early September, once in early October. BEFORE AND AFTER STILL LATER - it still looks the same! "Currently offline!" These are not Photoshopped, by the way, except to blur out the website address. Which was a very gracious act on my part. By... Continue Reading →
Want to set a date for the rapture and maybe take home a prize? Step right up, son, three shots for a quarter!
Autumn  swings around, and with it this year's harvest of Rapture Predictions. This year it’s September 23 (tomorrow!). And yes, I have looked over the “proofs”; given the late date, they are not worth the time it would take to overturn them. Each Rapture Prediction typically begins with a bang and ends with...

The Golden Rule and Political Discussion
This has been the most difficult election season, at least since 1948, perhaps since 1860. For that reason, may I request that, when someone didn't vote the way you or I did, that we not automatically respond: "Oh, that means you don't care at all about ____." "Oh, you're ignoring the sins of your candidate,... Continue Reading →
Another astounding prophecy to toss into the trash can
Well, so here we are on October 6, 2016, and another false prophecy, made by a false prophet, has fallen flat. Jonathan Cahn's wacky, mystical Shemitah scheme is a classic example of the logical fallacy known as the Texas Sharpshooter - a Texan claims to be a great marksman, and he takes 6 shots at...

Is the Earth a flat disc after all?
Is it just me, or is anyone else running into Flat Earth proponents lately? (Check this ARTICLE) People who think NASA is doing mind control over us, that no one has ever been to space, that the Bible teaches the earth is a disc? Yeah, it's a thing. It's conspiracy thinking at heart. Basically an... Continue Reading →

An Epidemic of the Ethical Woulda-Dones
The doctor has paid a house call and left, shaking his head. The diagnosis? American Christians have come down with a bad case of the Woulda-Dones. The symptoms? We are irresolute about making tough, righteous decisions today, but we know exactly what we bravely and clearly and boldly “woulda-done” if we had faced the moral... Continue Reading →
Did your pastor/teacher/expert/YouTube guru set a wrong date for the Second Coming? Don’t let them off the hook
It appears to be the busy season of people telling us when Jesus will return. I have seen five dates for the period of September-December 2015 and others for 2016 or 2017. Four of those dates have already passed us by. Whether these date-setters claim to be prophets or not, they all transgress the Lord’s warning... Continue Reading →
