O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
I want to piggy back off a series that Sam is posting on “Gordon H. Clark: The Definition of Man” and most importantly to the Biblical definition of man as regards the Image of God. I want to differentiate that a Biblical understanding of the “Image of God” in lieu of how it is to be understood through a philosophical application is helpful in understanding a primary theme of scripture.
The definition of Image of God starts in Genesis 1:26 with this profound statement.…
The 3rd edition of Beyond Creation Science is almost 5 years old. It's past time to start on a new edition.
Tim and I plan to start on the new edition this winter and post the chapters one at a time as they are finished.
The basic structure of the first four chapters of the book will remain unchanged, but these chapters do have things we need to fix. Beyond that, we will wait and see.
Any comments, the more specific the better, please email to me.…
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

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
It is no secret that the partial preterist world tries its best to marginalize consistent preterism. Gary DeMar has called the movement a "tar baby" with only about 100 people in it.
With that in mind, these two episodes of "Back to the Bible" with Woodrow Kroll, were quite surprising and may be harbingers of what is to come upon the partial preterist world.
Kroll is embarking on an…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
