    To the contrary… what I’m suggesting is address real problems now, instead of trying to predict BS that is unlikely to ever happen to fearmonger people into a frenzy. You know… like grown ups do… “OK, what can we do to be positive change to address our problems?”, instead of, “Oh my God… the sky is falling… it’s all going to hell… oh, and here’s a word from our sponsor, who just so happens to have a product you absolutely need to survive the hell that is to come… we’ll be right back.”

    Just more status quo nonsensical misinterpretation of the Bible… these guys will be just as wrong as Hal Lindsey, Tim LaHaye and the rest who came before them touting the eschatological buffoonery that is dispensationalism and futurism. The idea that we live in the worst times in American history alone takes a lot of denial or ignorance to believe. Were the good old days when we committed genocide against the Native Americans? Were the good old days when owning another human being as property was acceptable? How about the days when the age of sexual consent was as young as 9 years old in many states? Maybe the days when a man beating his wife was perfectly legal as long as he didn’t maim or kill her? 200 years ago, the percentage of folks going to church is virtually no different than today. The majority of people were poor. They had diseases that are now eradicated and died young. Perhaps abortion being legal during the 1800′s in America with 20-25% of all pregnancies ending in abortion were the “good old days”. The abortion rate has collapsed over the past 20 years, with 70% of abortion clinics shuttered. Let’s not willingly ignore measurable statistics to stay in the comfort of our ignorance. Besides, the apocalyptic stuff that nobody seems to know how to interpret was accounted for in the annals of history, recorded by Jews who witnessed gross persecution of Christians and the eventual destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. It’s over people.

    Hey Glenn… the age of sexual consent in many states in the 1800′s was as young as 9 years old… in addition to that, abortion was legal and an estimated 20-25% of all pregnancies were aborted during that time, and it was legal to physically abuse your wife as long as you didn’t maim or kill her. Do we have problems? Sure… but since you are such a student of history, why don’t you stop pretending this is the worst time in American history and admit we live in statistically proven good times. I realize what that would do to your ratings and survival product sales since your bread and butter are folks with visions of societal collapse and apocalypse dancing in their heads, but I think it would preserve what’s left of your reputation.

    Believe what you must Avengerk… like Ebola was Obama’s way of killing us all, right?

    MiltonsMinion… yeah sounds a lot like the fearmongering last year about churches being forced to marry gays when SCOTUS allegedly redefined marriage… and here we are almost a year later and not a single church here has been forced to marry anyone.

    Actually, the one and only thing I was referring to was Lance’s disbelief of the validity of this woman’s claim… as in, you are so entrenched in your belief that droves of perverts are going to be lining up to pretend their transgender just to pee with our daughters, you’re going to plug your ears and close your eyes to the fact that there was even an inkling of overreaction in this story… as has been the case since this whole debate got started via Target. I’m not pro-transgender or anti-transgender (I really don’t care) by the way… so you can chalk that up to yet another of many pre-conceived notions with which you guys operate. It’s one knee-jerk overreaction after another.

    Denying something simply because it doesn’t fit your pre-conceived narrative is the epitome of willful ignorance.

    Just more status quo nonsensical misinterpretation of the Bible… she will be remembered just as wrong as Hal Lindsey, Tim LaHaye and the rest of them who have fallen for the eschatological buffoonery that is dispensationalism and futurism. Just the idea that we live in the worst times in American history alone takes a lot of denial or blatant ignorance to believe. The idea that the “good old days” were so much better is simply not true. Were the good old days when we committed genocide against the Native Americans? Were the good old days when owning another human being as property was acceptable? How about the days when the age of sexual consent was as young as 9 years old here in many states? Maybe the days when a man beating his wife was perfectly legal as long as he didn’t maim or kill her? 200 years ago, the percentage of folks going to church is virtually no different than today. The majority of people were poor. People caught diseases that have since been eradicated and died much younger than today. Perhaps Anne thinks abortion being legal during the 1800′s in America with 20-25% of all pregnancies ending in abortion were the “good old days”. How could God bless all of that then but be removing his blessing now? The abortion rate alone has collapsed over the past 20 years, with over 70% of abortion clinics being shuttered in that time frame. Let’s not willingly ignore measurable statistics to stay in the comfort of our ignorance.

    Whew… Judging by Glenn’s track record, we might as well get used to President Clinton again. Thank God for a horrible track record and that Trump will not be our next POTUS. Thanks Glenn! A slightly less smelly crap sandwich is surprisingly tolerable.

    Maybe if we hadn’t decided to sit on our hands a long time ago and hide in our churches to isolate ourselves from sinners, we’d have had more of an influence in our culture than we do. Sinners sin… it’s what they do… and for us to act shocked when they do it is ridiculous. Maybe if we hadn’t fallen for the notion that we must be living in the end times that subsequently led to our grossly selfish plan to just ride this out until Jesus comes to rescue us from having to deal with reality, we’d be farther along in advancing the kingdom of God here in America. Franklin Graham, you are a shadow of who your father was. Maybe it’s time to put down the picket sign and bullhorn and build relationships with people with whom you disagree. You know, love them… truly love them, not beat them over the head with their sin under the guise of “speaking truth in love” nonsense. Maybe then we will understand the scriptures when it tells us to do good so that others will glorify our God in heaven… you know, instead of trying to do the work of the Holy Spirit and force change on others how we see fit and in our timing.

    I am a partial preterist now because of the many unanswered questions that came with the advent of dispensationalism in the mid-1800′s, which became wildly popularized when Scofield put it in his study bible. Preterism… at least the partial variety in which I categorize myself… answers most, if not all, of the unanswered questions I had… mostly because it does not use a literal interpretative filter when reading scripture. When you replace that with the lens of reader relevance, vernacular used in the time the scripture was written, and historical context including the accounts of Jewish historians who lived in and recorded their experience in the days after Christ ascended, you get a much clearer picture of what these alleged “end times” scriptures actually say.

    For example, the “stars in the sky fell to the earth” in Revelation 6 must be looked at with a little more attention to understand what that means. The stars literally falling to earth is a pretty ridiculous notion, knowing what we now know from space exploration. The sun, moon and stars were used as metaphors for governing bodies back then. Joseph’s dream of the sun, moon and stars bowing before him was a foretelling of his future position over Egypt and the people. Jerusalem and the temple system were completely destroyed in 70 AD… the stars fell.

    This is just evidence how strong a hold the false doctrine of dispensationalism really has taken over the past 100+ years. All of these scriptures describe exactly what happened in the days leading up to the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD… end of story, folks. Right down to the 42 month “authority” exercised by the beast spoke of there in Revelation 13. According to the Jewish historians’ accounts who lived in those days, Nero began his horrific persecution of Christians in Rome in November 64 AD, and it lasted until he committed suicide in June 68 AD… exactly 42 months. Something else to consider was the audience reading the vernacular of that time. The literal interpretation of very abstract language in Revelation for example, is rather ignorant. The reader relevance of these words matter.

    Yep, the election is just a formality… this is what I’ve been trying to tell my Trumpster friends the whole time, but these bullheaded ignoramuses won’t listen. Enjoy Hillary!

    Is everyone oblivious to the fact that Ferrell has done serious roles in serious dramas before? Typical knee-jerk reaction based on minimal information. Remember what happens when you assume.

    The obsession with the futurist eschatological view instead of coming to the realization that the “end times” that Paul talked about happening SOON and John talked about happening SOON actually did happen SOON… in 70 AD. The kingdom of God has been advancing ever since… as things progressively have improved. Instantaneous and sensationalist media doesn’t allow you to believe that, but that’s another argument for another time.

  • April 28, 2016 at 10:35am

    Poor choice of words on my part maybe… by forceful, I am not necessarily talking about evangelizing… the forceful part is stepping into the authority God has given us and being His hands and feet. We are too busy tying up our resources in building multi-million dollar temples.

  • [1] April 28, 2016 at 10:25am

    In my opinion, the American church is in decline because we have spent the last 40-50 years or so buried in our futurist end times nonsense that offers no hope to the unchurched, instead of advancing the kingdom of God in a positive, forceful manner like it is moving elsewhere on the globe.
