O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Some of you have probably already seen this article. It first appeared in the Winter Issue of Fulfilled Magazine. I'm posting a link here for those who do not subscribe to that impressive work done by Brian Martin.
Introduction to Covenant Creation
Would love to hear any feedback as we prepare for the…
Now for that post script I see there are questions regarding the Corporate and Individual Body usage in scripture. I wrote this little excerpt about 5 years ago in response to the same questions Ed brings up and is being discussed. I’m going to add a little more at the end to “flesh” it out just a tad more.
Subject: Re: The Resurrection: Corporate or Individual
As I have stated earlier I believe it is imperative that when introducing the “body” corporate…Continue
I'm not very active on this site or any others for that matter due to significant time constraints with my family, farm, and business. But over the course of my slower season this winter I wrote 6 articles on my private Facebook page concerning this topic. My audience was mostly friends from church or school over the years who for the most part have typical evangelical and/or futurist leanings. This is not a scholarly work (though I tried to write it with a quasi-scholarly bent), nor is it…Continue
What was Adam's death?
Adam was promised the death for eating from the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil. What kind of death was it?
Some say this death was physical death. Some say this death was spiritual death. And some say this death was spiritual death followed by physical death 900-some years later.
Some believe Adam was created immortal, that, had Adam not sinned, he would never die. Does this make any sense?
Before Adam sinned,…Continue
At the end of 2007, Tim Martin and I published the 3rd edition of Beyond Creation Science. This is the edition is which we first defined and developed Covenant Creation. Before this, only one conference paper had been issued on the subject.
Imagine our surprise, while the book was still at the printer, Ed Stevens had published in the Dec. 2007 issue of Fulfilled Magazine a critique of Covenant Creation. …

In the previous article http://deathisdefeated.ning.com/profiles/blogs/the-problem-of-context-in-the-genealogy-of-genesis-5?xg_source=activity, we established that the flood account was embedded in the Genesis 5 genealogy. That genealogy ended with the last two verses of Genesis 9.
In Genesis 6, the embedded account starts with
1 Now it…
We rarely read things in the Bible in their proper context. Part of this has to do with the chapter and verse divisions. I’d like for everyone to read this extended text from Genesis straight through starting near the end of Genesis 4, all the way to my chosen end.
You will notice, in Genesis 4 that we have the birth of Seth and Enosh. The first two verses of tell us a bit about Adam (the meaning of these two verses is not germane to…
Sometimes, you just have to throw the ball down the field to see what happens...
"… this makes it more evident that all kinds of animals were preserved in the ark, not so much for the sake of renewing the stock, as of prefiguring the various nations which were to be saved in the Church…"
Have you ever wondered if Covenant Creation can be demonstrated directly from the text of the New Testament?
One of the neat things about active ministry in a local congregation is how you will be forced, on a regular basis, into systematic study of God's Word with its application to daily life. I spent most of my preaching schedule in 2012 at Covenant Community Church working verse by verse through…Continue

I have been thinking about this subject for quite some time. In fact, I recently preached a sermon developing out what I believe to be some preterist implications for political theory in the modern world. You can find that sermon as Part 36 of my sermon series through the gospel of Mark.
Here is the short story. The…Continue
Recently a discussion was brought up by a good friend concerning Duncan and Doug W.’s Premillennial Preterism on a closed forum I belong to. I typically have to stay away from these detailed discussions because they require a lot of energy, thought and time to enter into intelligently. Against my better judgment I decided to enter in even though I don’t have the time and energy I used to be able to allocate to these issues. Partially this is because I’m not giving Duncan and Doug a fair…Continue
My apologies to those who have already listened to these recordings on the 01-27-12 Hairy Ticks Variety Show. I thought I should repackage the material in a dedicated blog post to better describe the content. This will help for future reference.

I want to introduce Pete Enns newly released Book “The Evolution of Adam”: What the Bible does and doesn’t Say about Human Origins.
This is going to be a ground breaking book in Christian circles as Pete introduces some new concepts to the evangelical crowd that seriously challenges many of their longstanding hermeneutical approaches. I have listed the Table of Contents and Pete’s concluding 9 Thesis below to give you a…Continue
I recently posted this response on a personal blog with some others but no one has responded to it yet so I’m going to repost it here in hopes I can get some interaction with some of you here on DID. My premise is in response to questions concerning the Judgment upon the Nations and the timing of it in relation to AD70 and judgment upon Israel. IMO it appears from all indications that Judgment must first occur concerning Israel and then Judgment occurs upon the Nations. As many of…Continue
