A few points from chapter four of Mauro’s book, The Gospel of the Kingdom: CHAPTER FOUR THE BEGINNING OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD THE words of our chapter heading are the first words of the Gospel by Mark. They are enlightening words; and indeed they are quite sufficient in themselves […]

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” […]

The Scepter Shall Not Depart From Judah UNTIL…

Adam has posted a wonderful teaching at Pursuing Truth Blog. Quote, Sometimes a whole lot of meaning is packed into one word. This is the case with the word “until,” where it appears in Genesis 49 in one of the earliest prophecies in Scripture. Jacob, later named “Israel” (Genesis 49:2), was the grandson of Abraham, […]

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 […]

Why I Left Scofieldism (Dispensationalism)

Actually I can’t recall if this was posted some years back, but even if it was it’s well-worth sharing again. I do recall when first reading it, the impact it had. It was early on in the days when I felt my spiritual life was in a turmoil, for the Holy Spirit was in the […]

Hagee: Ukraine Crisis The Beginning Of The Last Days

Wouldn’t even bother posting this, but Michael asked if I’d heard of any-other “prognosticator” (besides Kim Clement) having anything to say concerning Russia and the Ukraine. So this one’s for you brother Michael… From false prophecy teacher John Hagee, we’re being told;  (The) Ukraine Crisis The Beginning Of The Last Days (with video)

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 […]

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, […]

Who is the Israel of God in Galatians 6:16?

As we previously looked at the topic ‘Who is Israel’ earlier, I thought this teaching from John at Aletheuo might be of interest to someone. quote, 1 ”I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that […]

A Quote: An Example of Heresy

This is an example of why I no longer hesitate in referring to dispensational theology/eschatology as heresy. New article posted at Rapture Ready –  Israel: God’s Prophetic Time Clock By Ray Smith The Bible contains approximately thirty percent prophecy. God, in His wisdom and mercy must have thought it was critical to include in His Word […]

John Hagee: His False and Demonic Teachings Concerning Israel! (Another Wake-Up Call For Deceived Christians)

Excellent message from Bill White at Soul Refuge. quote, The 2013 C.U.F.I. (Christians United For Israel) Washington Summit is over, and here is an appropriate article for such a time as this. There are certain preachers and teachers in the world today who  make statements sometimes, which I find to be simply mind boggling. John Hagee is […]

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. […]

Dispensational Distortions: A System Fraught With Distortion, Error, and Absurdity

Good post (full title, Dispensational Distortions ~ Leading To A System Fraught With Distortion, Error, and Even Absurdity) at For the Love of His Truth, but I wanted to quote one segment in particular. First, the chapter itself (Revelation 20), has stumped me for years, and secondly, the most common interpretation heard in many Western Churches […]

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 […]

Pat Robertson Says America’s Middle East Peace Push Is ‘Asking For The Wrath Of Almighty God’

One of a number of reasons why I believe dispensational theology is unbiblical and wacky..  Pat Robertson does not think the United States’ push for peace in the Middle East is the way to go. He recently said such a move is “asking for the wrath of Almighty God.” The “700 Club” host discussed on […]

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 

Left Behind? LaHaye, Jenkins, the Rapture and the New Testament

This is one of the more interesting reviews I’ve read on the theology surrounding the Left Behind books. It was written by Iain D. Campbell and can be found at Nollie’s blog: Doctrine Unites!  A few excerpts, Perhaps you are asking why we should spend so much time thinking about a work of fiction? It is […]

Why I Abandoned Replacement Theology

Bravo! Excellent message by Adam at Pursuing Truth, I once believed in and taught “replacement theology,” but no one ever accused me of it at the time. Since turning away from replacement theology, however, I’ve faced this accusation numerous times. What is replacement theology? Matt Slick, the president and founder of Christian Apologetics and Research […]

Quote of the Day

Peacemakers posted an interesting quote from George Mueller: George Mueller said: “My brother I am a constant reader of the Bible, and I soon found out what I was taught to believe (by Darby’s doctrine) did not always agree with what my Bible said. I came to see I must either part company with John Darby, […]

Jonathan Cahn, AFA “Heresy” and the Harbinger: Mis-Understanding Israel & America

After posting an excerpt from a message from Barth Notes, (American Evangelicalism and the Hebrew Roots Movement) Michael was kind enough to pass on the link to a website which has posted an excellent critique  of Jonathan Cahn’s book, The Harbinger. From Ponderings of a Pilgrim blogspot; The AFA “Heresy” and the Harbinger: Mis-Understanding Israel […]

The Confused Thinking among Christian Zionist

While many if not most of their teachings are confusingly unbiblical, this is one I received in my email today. A group of distinguished foreigners visited Jesus after His birth, bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. They came “from the east” to worship the Christ, “born King of the Jews.” They asked, “Where is […]

Evangelical Theology & American Politics in the Middle East (2)

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. When first digging into most of this stuff a few years back, frankly I was amazed at how ignorant I was. Conclusion, 7. Arno C. Gaebelein: […]

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 […]
