Dangerous Theology

Abrahams Blessing – The Dispensationalist Dilemma

Excellent bible teaching by Steve Lumbley at Apostasy Watch. The question before us is this: should one interpret the Old Testament through the lens of the New Testament or should one interpret the New Testament by the Old Testament? Dispensationalism rests largely on the latter while I (and the authors of the New Testament) believe the […]

The Gospel of the Kingdom

This is an interesting book by Philip Mauro. After ordering it at Amazon I realized a condensed version was available online, so want to post a few portions from it’s contents, as I read it in paperback. Beginning with his intro you can sense by his tone how dangerous he believes this “new” fangled “modernistic” […]

New Poll: Almost half of all Americans would support Israel even if its interests diverge from those of The United States

This latest poll/article doesn’t surprise me in the least, for we see it within our own Congress and Senate. Plus I have never forgotten Evangelical author and teacher Kay Arthur’s statement from yrs back, in which she said her loyalty was and will always be with Israel over that of the United States.  Still yet, […]

Why evangelicals should think twice about equating modern Israel with Israel of the Bible

Steve Lumbley (Apostasy Watch) posted this both at Facebook and at his website. I found it very interesting, but that could be because until last year, questions concerning modern-day Israel plagued me. They no longer do, as I can no longer equate the modern State called Israel today, with the Israel of the Bible. The […]

An Examination of Dispensationalism by William E. Cox (2)

Not sure if anyone has had a chance to look over or read part (1) but a couple things the author mentions really bears pointing out. The first being the relative newness of the theology known as Dispensationalism and that it’s original promoters never attempted to deny this, but instead attempted to explain this away […]

An Examination of Dispensationalism by William E. Cox (1)

This message is rather lengthy so it will be broken up into at least 2-3 posts, possibly more. The author, William E. Cox, who also wrote the earlier posted message (Why I Left Scofieldism) does an excellent and fair job of explaining Dispensationalism; it’s origin, beliefs, impact, etc. in the message below. The main reason […]


The message quoted below appears at Charisma under the title; Christians Rediscovering Passover For Jews and Christians, the Passover season is a special time for reflection on the rich spiritual truths contained within this remarkable holiday. Indeed, we can all observe the command to remember the incredible Israelite deliverance from bondage in Egypt… For Christians, the […]

Evangelicals who dissent from Christian Zionism wear ‘stain of indelible infamy,’ Israel says

Over the weekend I spent some time watching the reactions from Christians, both Christian Zionists and Christians who “dissent” where it concerns the theology concerning Christian Zionism, and thus ‘wear the stain of indelible infamy’, according to Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  This all concerns a conference being held in Israel by a number of […]

Hagee and David Reagan explain “why” taking the Gospel to Jews is a waste of time…

See article at  RightwingWatch: Hagee: Jews Will Make End Times Deal With The Antichrist

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, […]

A View of Life after the Rapture? Really?

When I read articles like the one below, my first thought is, “Where do you get this from…where in God’s Word do we read of this?”.  Because frankly, it’s a fantasy born in the minds of those who write such things. This kind of wild speculative “imagining”, is warned of in God’s Word–its referred to […]

Christian Zionists help settler-farmers take over Palestinian lands

In recent months Benjamin Netanyahu has spent time in the interview chair repeating to the American public that settlements are not responsible for the continuation of the conflict. In turn, the U.S. State Department has merely squeaked that they were “disappointed” when the first of many new settlements tenders were announced during the start of […]

Todd Bentley to Rick Joyner: It Rained Gold During Our Revival In South Africa

My first response to reading any of these type of reports is to ask why? Why would God “rain gold”, glitter, feathers, etc. And how would this lift up Jesus, draw people to Christ, or even reveal God’s power?  The answer is always the same–it does none of this things. Sadly, all Todd has done […]

Michele Bachmann: proof that end-times theology will poison your worldview

Boy, if that title isn’t the truth! From Formally Fundie, One of my faithful readers has pointed me to a great piece in the Huffington Post that was published yesterday (complete article can be found here), where Michele Bachmann helps to demonstrate the utter dangerousness of believing in the end-times theology so many of us grew up with. […]

Why I am NOT a Christian Zionist

Interesting (2) part article by Craig Nielsen From part (1)- Anyone reading the articles posted on this blog will be able to see for themselves the reasons why I am not a believer in the very popular heresy known as Christian Zionism, but for the sake of those who don’t have the time to look […]

Scofield’s Bible: Handbook for Genocide & Re-defining the darkness of fraud, conspiracy and heresy

I’ve been following a series posted at For the Love of His Truth blog and wanted to share the links.  Someone may consider one or both parts already posted to be quite controversial, in fact, one or both may even ruffle some feathers: but I look at controversial Christian messages and studies in this manner: […]

Why do many Christians believe Jesus will only return after Jews rebuild the temple?

This morning I found myself catching up with our old pal John Hagee and reading a few details surrounding his recent Washington D.C. CUFI conference. In the past I use to post extensively on these yearly conferences but frankly my interest in them has waned over the years.  I mean, how many times does anyone […]

Has Jesus become just another lego block in your theology?

Amen amen…this newest post from Rick at Following Judah’s Lion is excellent… If you believe that the narratives contained in the Old Testament Scriptures are valid and at least generally accurate than you are faced with a problem. How do you reconcile the teachings and life of Jesus who was God in the flesh with […]

Christian Zionism: The New Heresy that Undermines Middle East Peace

Very good article by Stephen Sizer. The only thing I might change is the title, in as far as calling it a “new” heresy.  From my reading on the topic, historically Christian Zionist’s have always, in defense of their personal theology, stood strongly against peace in the middle east…as it pertains to Israel and “whomever”. […]

Interesting (but disturbing) quote…

Though I don’t claim to be an expert on the history of dispensationalism, I have read my share of books which trace the theology from it’s ‘birth’ through the numerous stages it morphed into over the years. One interesting fact is how the missionizing or evangelizing beliefs, first set down and taught by the early […]

Tel Aviv: “Most gay-friendly city in the World”

A number of thoughts go through my mind at reading this article…number one, how do those who refuse to believe Israeli Jews need to be missionized wrap their strange theology around this article. And secondly, this quote, (Finance Minister Yair) Lapid said he came to the parade to talk about “the rights of gay people to […]

“Exposing The Dispensational Lie Of Giving Honor to Unregenerate and Unbelieving Israel” and a few quotes…

Bill, at Soul Refuge, has a good post up today.. How should a true born again, Bible believing Christian, view the modern day State of Israel, and the Jewish people in general? What should our attitude be toward them? Do the Jewish people, especially those who reside over in modern day Israel deserve honor, or […]

Liberty University, Kirk Cameron, and Reclaiming The 7 Mountains Theology

“In the mid 90s the idea of societal transformation and social entrepreneurship began to emerge when Bob Buford, author of Halftime began to voice the need for social impact through one’s workplace call. Other groups like Pinnacle Forum, a ministry to key influencers and our own ministry, Marketplace Leaders and International Coalition of Workplace Ministries […]

Waiting for Armageddon

Watched this last night and thought it was fascinating. Don’t think I’ll forget anytime soon hearing one participant in this video (think he was a pastor?) talking about how it will be “fun” to watch (from heaven) those left on earth being slaughtered after the rapture. Sigh…. Watch: Waiting for Armageddon 

Hebrew Roots and Wacky Prophets

BarthNotes has an interesting post and video clip up today, Odd Oklahoma draws attention to a video posted in November 2012 by “Rabbi” Ralph Messer, showing Messer in conversation with Jim Barfield (misspelt “Jim Berfield in the accompanying blurb). The two men have a lot of common: both are known for their eccentric appropriations of Jewish […]

Bible Prophecy in Crisis

Bible Prophecy in crisis? Boy if that isn’t the truth. Every day I receive at least one new “wild” dooms day/last day prophetic word or revelation from someone who falls into the “prophetic” category spoken of in Ezekiel 13: Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and […]
