Why The Idea Of The Rapture Has Ruptured
Why The Rapture Has Ruptured
For years I was taught that the coming of Christ was to be in two stages: He would come for the Church, then He would later come with the Church. The first stage of this coming was called the rapture. I grew up in a church where we saw evangelistic films reinforcing this teaching and lately, the Left Behind series of books and films has continued to popularise this view as well.

Is The Bible Tomorrow's Newspaper?
The Bible is uniquely prophetic. No other religious or holy book makes predictions of the future like the Bible does. This phenomenon has led some Bible teachers to over-emphasise the Bible’s ability to predict the future. The rise in claims of the Bible’s prophetic detail coincided with its increased availability.
The Bible does not predict-
- A one-world government in “the last days”
- A dictator (identified as “Antichrist”, note: the expression does not even occur in the Book of Revelation) who will rule the entire world
- A rebuilt end-times Temple in Jerusalem
- The restoration of Israel’s Biblical boundaries [READ]

If It's Natural It's Good and Right?
Undergirding the Environmental Movement, and its ensuing social policies, is that: natural is best. Many people justly concerned about our ecology have started to notice a large wooden horse on wheels has been pushed into the town square by Environmentalists. And just like the fabled Trojan Horse, this neo-Trojan horse has smuggled something more powerful than an army into our culture: If It’s Natural – It’s Morally Right.
