Do we really believe in regeneration?

By jreighley - Last updated: Monday, February 20, 2012

So here is a prophecy from the word of God: And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and […]

Mr Camping is wrong, and if you keep it up, you will be too!

Of course the buzz of the world is Harold Camping’s failed rapture prophecy about last weekend. I think that Mr Camping did sincerely believe what he believed.  I don’t think he made all of this hullabaloo to make a name for himself or anything of that sort.  He had a theory, he searched the bible […]

Where do the Parenthesis go?

By jreighley - Last updated: Thursday, March 24, 2011

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that many Christians blindly support the secular state of Israel, and that this position ignores quite a bit of scripture. The obvious retort is to go to Genesis 12:3 and point out that God’s Promise says “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse” […]

Sarah Palin made me shudder.

Yes, I know some people shudder every time she opens her mouth. I am not typically one of them. I see her as the presidential decoy. She takes all of the potshots for 3 1/2 years to clear the way for a guy like Tim Pawlenty to take the nomination. (Much like Hillary Clinton’s role […]

Just to Annoy Kylan

After watching this prophetess predict the  earthquakes in Japan. I have decided that perhaps Harold Camping is right after all.  (link expires 5/22/11 so click while you can) Not really.  

The Eschatology of a Lie.

By jreighley - Last updated: Monday, March 7, 2011

Lies are all around us.  What do we do with them? One thing that I have found effective is to attach the eschatology to the lie, and hand it back to the person who gave it to you.  “You are telling me this,  And they are telling me that.   One of you is lying.  I […]

More on the Rob Bell stuff..

By jreighley - Last updated: Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Seems like the bulk of public opinion is disapproves of Justin Taylor’s treatment of Rob Bell…   (Taylor has not read Bell’s book yet, but is judging it based on the promotional materials) I think that Rob Bell has built a track record, and there is plenty of reason to be critical and discerning about Bell’s […]

There is no such thing as a flashdark.

Flashlights are a pretty neat invention.  You can swing them in a particular direction, and things suddenly appear before your eyes.. If you ever want to have fun, go down to your local store and ask the clerk if they have any flashdarks.  Just like a flashlight, but with the opposite function.   You shine it […]

Vindication of George W Bush, and perhaps John Adams?

By jreighley - Last updated: Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Quite an interesting piece in Der Speigel.  George W. Bush’s Liberal Legacy Painful as it may be to admit, it was the despised former US President George W. Bush who believed in the democratization of the Muslim world and incurred the scorn and mockery of the Left for his conviction. Everyone was sure — without knowing […]

It’s okay to die.

We had a pretty fun discussion last night at SNT. On short notice, in an rather unorganized fashion, I taught about the human condition, Judgment, and Christ’s redemption.  (Audio might be posted shortly) I discussed the concept behind Robin Hanson’s Homo-Hypocritus theory .  Although Mr. Hanson teaches it from an evolutionary perspective, I have taught […]
