  4. Analysis of Dinosaur Bone Cells Confirms Ancient Protein Preservation 

    Yet more evidence that dinosaur bones are not as old as they keep telling us. Predictably, rather than leading to a re-evaluation of the prevailing long-age paradigm of earth history, this evidence is interpreted as indicating that there must be some unknown mechanism by which tissue is preserved for much longer than anyone thought possible: "The data thus far seem to support the theory that these structures can be preserved over time."

  5. The Coming Kingdom - Part 10 

    The church consists of all people, including both the Jewish remnant as well as Gentiles, who have trusted in the very Messiah Israel rejected. Unlike Israel, which was a national identity, the church is a spiritual organism consisting of all nations and ethnicities (Gal. 3:28; Rom. 10:19; Eph. 2:14). The church age began on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2 and will conclude with the future rapture of the church from the earth. Rather than replacing Israel, the church represents an entirely new divine work that interrupts God's past dealings and future dealings with national Israel.

  6. Book Recommendation - Jonathan Edwards: A New Biography 

    I recently read this excellent biography of Jonathan Edwards, a key American figure in the "Great Awakening" which took place on both sides of the Atlantic in the mid-18th century. This biography, written by Iain Murray, offers insight into numerous important themes: 1) what conditions typically prevail in a generation which follows upon a godly one, but lacks its convictions? 2) how to distinguish between a genuine move of God and the oft-attending manifestations produced by the flesh? 3) what are the true marks of bona fide revival and how was it brought about in this historical case? An inadvertent benefit of the book is the way in which it highlights the dumbing down of Christians and pulpit teaching today in comparison with that of the early American colonies. The faith and preaching of Jonathan Edwards assumes an intelligence and attention span which far exceeds Christian expectations in our age. One wonders whether Edwards would not be dismissed as "irrelevant" if he had preached in our time?

  7. Website Feature: One Year Bible 

    In order to better acquaint our readers with some of the features on our website that they may not be aware of, I've decided to feature some of them in this and upcoming newsletters.

    The annual Bible guides the reader through the entire text of the Bible in a year. (This is the reading schedule which I myself follow.) Passage selections are from both the Old and New Testaments and are available in the following translations: ASV, KJ2000, KJV, LITV, MKJV, NASB, WEB, YLT, and Reina-Valera (Spanish). The reading schedule matches that found in the MacArthur Study Bible and is also available as a handy printable insert for your traditional Bible making it easier to stay on the same schedule whether reading online or in a printed Bible.

  8. Q194 : Spiritualizing Old Testaments Passages 

    Is it legitimate to take Old Testament passages which were given as literal and specific promises to the nation Israel and spiritualize and apply them to the Church?
