People and Nations Are Being Misled

People and Nations Are Being Misled

Paul warns: ‘See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ’ (Col 2:8). Although the context of Colossians 2:8 probably has reference to a proto-gnostic type of philosophy, the implications of Paul’s exhortation to ‘beware of philosophy’ are appropriately applied to other alien systems of thought that have invaded Christianity down through the centuries since then (Geisler 1999:3). False ideologies and false systems of thought not only try to deceive people, but also to conquer nations. These days not only are more people turning away from God and his Word, but more and more nations seem to be deceived. Who is orchestrating this deception behind the scenes? Why does it appear as if more nations are breaking ties with God? What do believers hope for?

The 144 000

The 144 000

These days every man and his dog believe they are part of the 144 000. If it is not the Jehovah’s Witnesses who think they are the 144 000, then replacement theologians (cf. De Young 2012) teach that all believers collectively are the 144 000. When will the 144 000 evangelize, who are the 144 000 and what are the fruits of their ministry?

The Illustration of the Olive Tree

The Illustration of the Olive Tree

Paul says that nothing can separate believers from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Rom 8:38-39). If that is so — and it is! — how do believers know they can trust God if the unconditional promises to Israel have not yet been fulfilled? Why are so...

Faith Leading Reason

Faith Leading Reason

How does the Bible describe Abraham’s reasoning process when God told Abraham to offer up Isaac (Gen 22:1-2; Heb 11:17-19)? After he warned them about the leaven of the religious teachers, why did the Lord Jesus start his rebuke with the words, “O you of little...

Jesus’ Prayer in John 17

Jesus’ Prayer in John 17

The Upper Room Discourse (Jn 13-17) concludes with the ‘high priestly prayer’ of Jesus. At the time Jesus prayed this prayer, he had not yet entered his high priestly ministry, but Jesus was within 24 hours of being crucified and buried — and about six weeks later,...

The Present Session

The Present Session

What is Jesus (in his humanity) currently doing while he is in heaven — a time that some call the ‘present session’? Is Christ acting as a prophet, as a high priest or as a king — or is he functioning in all these offices simultaneously? What are the activities of...

Deity of the Only Begotten Son

Deity of the Only Begotten Son

Some cultic groups use John 1:1 to deny that the Word, Jesus Christ, is God. Furthermore, the Gospel of John refers to the Word, or Jesus Christ, as the ‘only begotten’ (see Jn 1:14, 18; 3:16, 18). Was there a time when the Word was not? Can you deny the deity of the...

Premillennialism in the Ante-Nicene Period

Premillennialism in the Ante-Nicene Period

The main reason why premillennialism (also called chiliasm) must be believed, is because the Bible teaches it. Today, our focus is on 230 years after the book of Revelation was written, that is, from about 95/96 AD to just before 325 AD. What did well-known believers...
