O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
I am always amazed at the importance of putting our theology into everyday practice. My life has seen some incredible trials over the past year, but the one thing that keeps me positive is knowing what Kingdom I am living in. This rough draft of a poem I wrote hopefully captures the idea that, because Christ actually finished the work He came to do, we actually can grow through our trials and experience Resurrection Life. These trials are not something to be avoided or escaped from, but 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
I am always looking for new places to download good audio, for free of course, to listen to while I work. Over the weekend I found out that christianaudio.com has a free section, as well as a free book for download every month.
Anyway, I perused their free section and found three really interesting presentations.
The first one…

I came across this interview with Dr. Peter Enns. The entire interview is fascinating, and I think he was spot on with the problems that mainstream evangelical (and I would include Reformed) crowds are perpetuating by…Continue
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…Continue
Here is a pretty good resource. I have corresponded with the author of the blog in the last month. He now has a copy of "Beyond Creation Science." He may end up writing a review. He is a trained geologist so his insights from the scientific side of things are really interesting for anyone looking into the YEC / OEC debate.
This might be a good place to comment and plant some seeds.
Notice the last line:
I think we just need a bigger more sophisticated handling of the text, than a reductionist one that I think actually impoverishes or understanding of The Fall, the cross, redemption, the ‘coming again’ and so on. (emphasis mine.)
I received a copy of Bible Matrix II by Mike Bull. (I would like to thank Mike publicly for sending me a copy free of charge. I very much appreciate it.)
Like Bible Matrix, Bull relies heavily on James Jordan's approach and has the same un-questioned young earth creationist presupposition. On a positive note, this book will open the full-preterist door to many astute readers.
However, I found this incredible quote on page…Continue
1 Corinthians 9:8-10 (ESV)
8Do I say these things on human authority? Does not the Law say the same? 9For it is written in the Law of Moses, "You shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain." Is it for oxen that God is concerned? 10Does he not speak entirely for our sake? It was written for our sake,…Continue
I am sure someone has developed this more than I have but here is a thought.
Isaiah 29 with the famous "Potter has authority over the clay" is cited by Paul in Romans 9...
In both instances the context is Israel...
Gen. 2:7 "God formed man out of the dust of the ground".
I was listening to Josephus today. He mentions that the name "Adam" had to do with a red color of the earth that he was made out of, like the clay that is…Continue
Answers in Genesis has really ratcheted up the heretic hunting. They are coming out with a new book "Already Compromised" on top of all the…Continue
