Having ended part (1) with the influence of Cyrus Scofield, we’ll pick this up by looking at Arno C. Gaebelein. By the way, I hope you’re finding this interesting.

Evangelical Theology & American Politics in the Middle East (1)

This was received prior to the latest outbreak between Israel and the Palestinians and I held on to it to share at a later date.  Now seems as good a time as any. So lay aside any lingering remnants of dispensationalist theology you may possess (and believe me, if you’re an American Christian you’ve got […]

Evangelicals: Out of the Closet

The Evangelical Children of Today….

 Rick Frueh posted a list which brought me to tears… The evangelical children of today will grow up and: Never discuss or understand what true revival is.

2 Roman Catholics + 1 Mormon =

Does anyone else think it ‘odd’ that all three front runners in the Republican party, a party long supported by the Christian Evangelical Right, claim religions which Evangelicals, not so long ago considered  heretical?   It wasn’t that many years ago when the Catholic Church’s practice of exalting, worshiping, and praying to Mary was a […]

Surprised? I’m not.

National Association of Evangelicals: ‘Anathema’

How “Christian” is Christian Zionism?

Since Stephen Strang of Charisma Magazine, joined up with John Hagee and the CUFI organization this year, its been interesting to read some of the articles Charisma posts in their new Standing With Israel section.

Anticipating the antichrist

(HT) Interesting article at the Guardian. Anticipating the antichrist Claims that the end of days is near have never been far from the evangelical surface.

Will scandals inspire evangelicals to stray from Repub. Party?
