  • What is the Biblical Eschaton?

    WHAT IS THE ESCHATON? The term ESCHATON refers to the so-called “last days” or “end times.” It is the same root word as ESCHATOLOGY, the study of the biblical “last things.” There is great confusion over the biblical “end times.” After studying this for many years, I am persuaded that the culmination of NONE of the mentions of the "last days" or "end times" in the Bible can be placed outside of the first century. While this is shocking at first to some Christians, it is worth taking the time to study this. There are 15 primary mentions of the...

I just don’t know how to deal with that. BIBLIANO: Then, when do you think that Matthew 16:27-28 was fulfilled?

    Faith Facts ^ | March 16, 2015 | Charles S. Meek
    Many American evangelicals regularly pray for Jesus to come soon. And then they search the daily newspaper for events which seem to affirm that Jesus is answering those prayers. Do you realize that, in actuality, they are praying for a holocaust in which two-thirds of Jews will die? That seems more than a bit anti-Semitic to me.There are legitimate questions whether this is biblical. Shouldn't Christians be reading the Bible through the lens of the writers of the New Testament? Reading the Bible through the lens of news events has led to false end-times prophecies throughout Christian history. These predictive...

    A shallow magnitude 3.0 earthquake that was centered near Hollywood and shook parts of the Los Angeles basin Saturday morning was the third temblor to hit the area in the last two weeks. The latest quake occurred at 10:13 a.m. at a depth of 5.0 miles and was felt from the Westside to East L.A., said Anthony Guarino, a seismologist at Caltech. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the epicenter was near the intersection of Melrose and Virgil avenues, on the eastern edge of Hollywood. It was the third magnitude 3.0 or greater quake to hit that area in the...

    The obsessed French-Canadian actress who made Alec Baldwin’s life a living hell was found guilty Thursday of stalking and other charges. Genevieve Sabourin, who turned her trial into a circus when she heckled Baldwin and his wife Hilaria on the stand, stayed silent and looked glum as the judge declared her guilty on all counts — and gave her a piece of his mind. “You had no right to continue communications or pursue contact you knew to be unwanted and unwelcome,” Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Robert Mandelbaum said. “Your relentless and escalating campaign of threats and in person appearances in...

There are 16 scheduled days left in the current year, but few expect any measure to extend government funding to get rolling before the House departs for Christmas break on December 13. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the schedule for 2014 on Thursday, which lists 113 working days. The calendar includes the chamber’s usual August recess and another extended break in October when members traditionally return to their districts to campaign....

    FORT HUACHUCA — Department of Defense civil service employees received good news Tuesday when they were informed nearly half of the furlough days they expected to have to take before the end of September were cut. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said instead of 11 days taken without pay it would be reduced to six, meaning civil service employees working for the military will not have to take five days off sans salary. So, instead of the employees facing a 20 percent loss of pay from July 9 to Sept. 30, the cut will be slightly more than 10 percent....

    Democrats have controlled the Senate and the White House since the election of 2008, and the House of Representatives up until this year.  Certainly they could have passed any budget they desired, including one with tax increases and spending increases.  But they chose to ignore the 800-day gorilla in the room because they don't want to be on record supporting a budget that actually does what they want.  Then the public could hold them accountable for their cowardly and irresponsible behavior in the face of national fiscal calamity.

But others confidently say it's Saturday, calling Sunday worship "the most flagrant error of mainstream Christianity," believing Sunday-keepers are victims of...

The controversial books, which have sold more than 60 million copies, depict the biblical end of the world: the Christian eschatology of the upheaval that precedes the second coming of Jesus Christ, known also as “end times.” LaHaye recently spoke with NEWSWEEK’s Brian Braiker about why he believes the events currently unfolding in the Middle East reflect biblical prophesy.

In fact, atonement means reconciliation. The Day of Atonement symbolizes the reconciliation of God and all humanity. If we are reconciled to God through Christ's sacrifice, why do we need another Holy Day to teach us about reconciliation? If we are already reconciled, why do we need to fast, as commanded on the Day of Atonement? (Leviticus 23:27; Acts 27:9). What is this day's specific significance in God's master plan...
