    As most of you know, there has been a rather vivid discussion recently in the blogosphere on the subject of hell. As one who has written rather substantially, on the topic of hell, and our need to recover a more biblical notion regarding judgment and hell, I pray that you will tolerate me adding my own voice to the recent discussions.Those who read this blog regularly, will know that I have spoken on the topic of Hell on any number of occasions. For example:The Hell of It ——–Hell Has to Be——Will Many Be Saved? ——–Sinner Please Don’t Let this Harvest...
  • Why They Don't "get" Perdition...(Bell)

    For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.(2 Timothy 4:2-3)There are a growing number of evangelicals who have been denying the Christian teaching on several key doctrines, including the Christian definition of marriage, the exclusivity of the gospel, the nature of God and the final fate of the wicked. The recent publication of the Rob Bell book Love Wins is only the tip of the iceberg...
  • Why They don't "get" Perdition...part 2

    Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:(Matthew 25:41)We have been discussing the widespread abandonment by evangelicals, of major aspects of the gospel, such as the warning of the fate of the unrepentant wicked . The perdition that Jesus warned about is being downplayed and even denied because it is offensive to modern sensibilities. It is almost as if once again the Serpent is suggesting that You shall not surely die. The previous article addressed the first of two reasons for this...
  • This Day in World War II: Operation Shingle Invasion at Anzio January 22, 1944

    Introduction World War II was the largest and most violent armed conflict in the history of mankind. However, the half century that now separates us from that conflict has exacted its toll on our collective knowledge. While World War II continues to absorb the interest of military scholars and historians, as well as its veterans, a generation of Americans has grown to maturity largely unaware of the political, social, and military implications of a war that, more than any other, united us as a people with a common purpose. Highly relevant today, World War II has much to teach...

    Rangel: Only Progress in Iraq Is to 'Get the Hell Out!' By Josiah Ryan Staff Writer January 18, 2008 On the Spot ( - Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) told Cybercast News Service Thursday that he does not consider legislation passed last Saturday by the Iraqi Parliament, which permits former members of Saddam's Ba'ath Party to reclaim government jobs, a sign of political progress. "The only thing that is progress is to get the hell out of there," said Rangel. (Hear Audio) The legislation, which allows low-ranking Ba'athist Sunnis to participate in the new Shia-controlled government, has been cited by...

    So how will the world eventually reach perdition? The theories abound and most of them involve some cataclysmic event. A Captain Trips Plague, an alien invasion, a thermonuclear ball of fire or a climate gone haywire all serve as secular stand-ins for the ending fortold in Revelations. As my cynicism gets worse, my faith gets fundamentally challenged. I no longer believe there will be a clear demarcation between grace and perdition. It will work more like the death of a star that's passed the supernova stage. It gradually cools and one by one the thousand points of light go dark...
