New Creation, Adorned

Joel McDurmon, with American Vision, posted this new article on Eschatology:


Creation, Adorned


"While 2 Peter 3:13 is definitely related thematically to Isaiah 65, it is a mistake to think that there is an exclusive relationship between the Isaiah passage and any New Testament usage, as if Isaiah were…

Ken Palmer Banned for Plagiarism

To the members of Death is Defeated:

We have recently uncovered widespread instances of plagiarism by one of our former members here, Ken Palmer. We initially discovered two instances involving names familiar to most of us here which occurred on another forum where Ken posts: He copied large sections from articles by both Ward Fenley and Sam Frost and passed the writing--the scholarship, the ideas, the work--off as his own. Of course these were blatant, glaring instances of…

Science vs. Scripture (or, history repeats itself)

There was a time when scientists made a series of discoveries that revolutionized our understanding of the world around us. They began proposing new theories to explain these groundbreaking observations.

Justification And Glorification

Sam Frost "The last line is quite funny, since I taught the same thing. Scargy is “glorified”. Then, does this not mean he should never get it wrong? How do these glorifed, perfect, without sin, redeemed body sons of God sin?"

Let's ask James Jordan Sam.

Michael Licona on Matthew 27:52-53

‘It seems to me that an understanding of the language in Matthew 27:52-53 as ‘special effects’ with eschatological Jewish texts and thought in mind is most plausible.  There is further support for this interpretation.  If the tombs were opened and the saints being raised upon Jesus’ death was not strange enough, Matthew adds that they did not come out of their tombs until after Jesus’ resurrection.  What were they doing between Friday afternoon…

Oldest Fragment of the Book of Romans Found

CNN did an interview with Steve Green, the president of Hobby Lobby, who happens to collect rare documents. In the interview he shows a fragment from the book of Romans which he says was discovered “within the last 48 hours”! The fragment has on one side a portion of chapter nine and on the other side a portion of chapter ten. Green says it was Scott Carroll of Baylor University who made the discovery. The fragment dates to…

Partial Preterist Futurism: Going the Whole Way on Creation

          There is a problem in the partial preterist world.  They are slowly running out of “unfulfilled” passages of Scripture.  It is not necessary to go into great detail, because any honest observer will admit that over the past 30 years "fulfillment" has been the course de jour.  Beginning with passages such as Daniel 12 back in the 1990's and even up into the present day with Joel McDurmon's new book,  Jesus vs. Jerusalem, partial preterist exegetes have…

Sin Before Adam

Taken from Richard James Fischer’s book, Historical Genesis: From Adam to Abraham, Pages 26-29.  By Rich Duncan



A contention exists among some traditionalist that there was no death even in the animal world until Adam sinned.  To support this idea, about one half of one verse in Romans is cited: “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin…”…
