  • The Jehovah’s (False) Witnesses — Why You Should HEAD FOR THE HILLS

    Most of us have had (or will have) run-ins with members of the “Jehovah’s Witnesses” due to their dedicated practice of canvasing neighborhoods to acquire converts. They claim to staunchly adhere to what the Bible teaches, but do they really? Are they a legitimate Christian organization? Is it wise to meet with them and consider […]

  • Amillennialism — What Is It? What’s Wrong With It?

    The doctrine of Amillennialism was formulated by Augustine of Hippo (354-430) around 400 AD, four centuries after the birth of Jesus Christ. ‘Amillennialism’ literally means “no millennium” and unsurprisingly maintains that there will be no literal thousand-year reign of Christ on earth before the eternal age of the new heavens and new earth, both of […]

  • The Five Earths of the Bible (and the Eight Ages)

    The idea of the Bible delineating “five earths” does not mean five altogether different earths as in God annihilating one earth and creating an altogether new planet from scratch. After all, the Bible shows that the earth was created to exist forever: You placed the world on its foundation so it would never be moved. […]

  • Hell (Lake of Fire): Eternal Torment or Everlasting Destruction?

    Traditionally, the most prominent view on eternal damnation is that people cast into hell—the lake of fire—will suffer fiery conscious torment forever and ever. Depicting the horrors of this belief was a favorite subject with artists in medieval times, resulting in all manner of ghastly portraits of people suffering unending agony. Some have since tried […]

  • Sheol / Hades: The “Intermediate State” of the Unsaved Dead

    The Great White Throne Judgment is when God will resurrect every un-regenerated soul from Hades (HAY-deez) to be judged as shown in this passage: The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he […]

  • The Believer’s “Intermediate State” (between Physical Death and Bodily resurrection)

    What does the spiritually-regenerated believer experience after physical decease and before bodily resurrection? In this article we will examine the Scriptures concerning the believer’s “intermediate state” between physical death and bodily resurrection. Here are the two views: The commonly understood position is that the disembodied souls of believers go straight to heaven when they die, […]

  • Faith — What Is It? Why Is It Important? How Does It Grow?

    There are six basic doctrines in Christianity and Faith in God is the second one, which indicates that it’s a foundational element of Christianity. Why? Here’s why: And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. […]

  • Spirit of the World — What is It?

    What is the “spirit of this world” noted in 1 Corinthians  2:12? Let’s read the verse: What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 1 Corinthians  2:12 A relevant passage that comes to mind […]

  • Legalism — Understanding its Many Forms

    Most Christians think legalism is doing a good work in order to be saved, but it’s really much more than this. Legalism is a colossal beast that has been a threat to legitimate Christianity since day one. Legalism is rule-ism or law-ism and, as such, is the obsession with religious rules or laws above relationship with God. It focuses on outward appearances at the expense of inward reality. In short, it’s dead religiosity or fake Christianity.

  • Christianity — Does it Weaken People or Empower?

    I was talking to a man a couple years ago who argued that Christianity weakens people and instills fear. He likened God and the devil to forest monsters in fairy tales that Christian leaders use to control and limit people through fear. While such a view may reflect some religious groups who propose to be […]
