    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God…And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:1, 14, English Standard Version). In this verse, it states that Jesus was God, and was with God from the beginning. He then came down and lived on earth as a man. Many years ago this actually happened.

    In recent years, new theologies have risen to answer the questions concerning the existence of God and evil. Openness, Love, and Essential Kenosis theologies offer an explanation for evil; however, there are several issues within these theologies which cause concern. Their answer redefines omniscience, teaches that God cannot be a sufficient cause, and stresses the proper way to understand God is only through love.

  • The Anti-Christ Book Report

    It is safe to say I have read a few books on eschatology/prophecy (study of the last things). Many describe The Antichrist as a mastermind without differentiating between a mastery that stems from wisdom and understanding, and a “cunning” that proceeds from craftiness and wickedness.

Where does wisdom come…

  • Analysis: The Authentic Scripture

    The Authentic Scripture In my understanding of the scripture, and its original form of the manuscripts, this is known as the inspired and infallible word of God. The Scripture is the product of the Holy Spirit divinely inspiring chosen men to write God’s desired message (2 Tim. 3:16-17 ESV). The bible holds the inspired words of God; it is consequently without error completely. The Scripture should only be used as an authentic source of God’s authority in all aspects of one’s life. The word…

  • Rescuing Jesus By Deborah Jian Lee

    As main stream denominations continue to shrink and modern day evangelicalism has morphed into something more politically and conservatively centered, I found “Rescuing Jesus; How People of Color, Women and Queer Christians are Reclaiming Evangelism”, by Deborah Jian Lee, enlightening, profound and hopeful as it centers on new, out of the box ways in which people generally pushed into the margins, are redefining their evangelical Christianity. “Evangelicalism is anything but a monolith; it is a…

In these systems the naturalistic theory of the external world is combined with a non-naturalistic theory of the human soul, which is the “spiritualistic eschatology” and I feel that this combination of naturalism and nonnaturalism is a uniquely interesting trait and would make for a great study.The Jaina literature is assumed to have been based on the teachings of Mahavira. In this article I look at…
