Israel: Spiritual or Literal

“The European cuckoo bird is known as a “brood parasite.” The female lays her eggs in the nests of other smaller birds, like the reed warbler. In turn, they unwittingly incubate, feed, and raise the young impostors-usually at the expense of their own genuine offspring.” A somewhat strange introduction, but an interesting message. Quote, The […]


Anyone willing to wager on the likelihood of America being involved in another war by the end of 2014?  Two Democratic senators, Robert Menendez and Chuck Schumer (along with Republican warhorse Mark Kirk), are circulating a bill that would hamstring the Obama administration’s ability to negotiate with Iran by broadening sanctions. And the bill would […]

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas): An Example of Dispensational Theology & Christian Zionism’s Influence upon American Politics

From Nathan Pitchford’s article, The Threat of Christian Zionism If the phenomenal success of the bestselling Left Behind series indicates anything about the prevailing eschatological mindset across a wide swath of the evangelical landscape in modern America, then we would do well to pause and consider. Where is this fascination with the sensational, and frequently outright bizarre, […]

Heard about this last week through an email sent out by Hagee’s Ministry  From Jonathan Cook: The blog from Nazareth Nazareth has been arguing for decades that it should host the first Arab university in Israel.

Waiting for Armageddon

Watched this last night and thought it was fascinating.

By the early 20th century it had become a predominantly American dispensational movement and […]

Israel and the Church: (Part 2)

Thus while acknowledging a […]

Israel and the Church: (Part 1)
