The Coming Kingdom of the Son of Man (Updated) [Eschatology]

I came across this image the other day (in the header above; see larger here) that links together three parts of Matthew’s Gospel to highlight the connection which many often miss, or read as separate events. I like the image because it shows that when Jesus spoke these things,…

The Eighth Day (Updated) [Eschatology]

What is the “eighth day” you may ask; surely we know there are only seven days in a week!   But in ancient times, Sunday – which was also known as the first day of the week, was also referred to as the eighth day by Christians.   This day was considered a holy day from the earliest of times…

Has Brexit just spoiled “End Times” prophecy? (Updated) [Eschatology]

Has “Brexit” just spoiled “End Times” prophecy?   In a word, no.   Unless of course you are of a Dispensationalist view, then this sudden exit from the European Union by Britain will have caused you some theological holes you may feel the need to patch up.   There’s already been some satire articles posted in light of this, highlighting…

Humble without the #hashtag [Christianity]

As much as it a pains me to give this guy any more exposure, sometimes you need to in order to expose something.

By now, most people (in Christian circles, at least) will have heard about the Jars of Clay controversy.

Shocking, I know.…

When did Christians become so whiny? [Christianity]

The Church is so whiny at times. At least in the West it seems, from the various news outlets which like to showcase the "worst" (and actual worst) of the bunch. Sometimes I read articles and wonder why do certain Christians care so much about this!? It’s usually a non-issue really, often under the guise of "principles" or "persecution." Now I realise that some of…
