Is 2020 the End?

Remember boys and girls, when the headline asks a question the answer is NO.  There are two predictions for the end of the world in 2019, June 19, 2019, and December 28, 2019. Of course, both of these predictions come from serial date setters who haven't been right yet but don't let that stop you … Continue reading Is 2020 the End?

June 19, 2019- The End of the World! (Again)

Ok, boys and girls; break out the tinfoil hats, a serial predictor of apocalyptic dates Ronald Weinland has a new book and a new date. Weinland claims to be God's prophetic spokesperson. In 2006 he claimed he was one of the two prophets predicted to appear during the end times in the book of Revelation. … Continue reading June 19, 2019- The End of the World! (Again)

Why Fundagelicals Fear Peace

Most Fundagelicals are Dispensationalist. They read the book of Revelation literally and believe there is a planned timetable to the end of the world. Part of the doomsday scenario is the forming of a one world government and a one world religion. Fundagelicals interpret any attempt at nations working together as part of the end-times … Continue reading Why Fundagelicals Fear Peace

Why Fundagelicals Don’t believe in Global Warming

Despite the scientific evidence, Fundagelicals scoff at the idea of global warming. Science is seen as a liberal plot to attack the truth of the Bible. Global warming is impossible because it's not in the Bible. In Genesis, the story of Noah and the ark, tells how God floods the entire earth. At the end … Continue reading Why Fundagelicals Don’t believe in Global Warming

Bad Theology: Natural Disasters are God’s Judgement

A favorite Fundagelical narrative is that America has become more and more corrupt and as a result, God is judging us. Pat Robertson claimed that HIV and AIDS was God's judgment on the LGBT community. John Hagee claimed hurricane Katrina was God's judgment on New Orleans because they were planning a sinful homosexual parade. Currently, … Continue reading Bad Theology: Natural Disasters are God’s Judgement

The Beast of Belgium

In 1976, Christian Life Magazine printed a scary article. In the article, they claimed that a supercomputer that took up an entire three-story building and was self-programmable was designed to track the buying and selling of every person on earth. This supercomputer was called "The Beast" and was located in a building at the headquarters … Continue reading The Beast of Belgium

Let’s Make Up Another Date.

On May 14, 1948, Israel became a country again. This date became of "Sign" to dispensational prophecy nuts, and Fundagelicals are dispensationalist to the core. From this number, they began to start calculating the return of Jesus. Hal Lindsey in 1980's Countdown to Armageddon quotes Matthew 24. "Truly I say to you; this generation will … Continue reading Let’s Make Up Another Date.

VISA is the Mark of the Beast

In 1958, Bank of America started issuing credit cards with the name BankAmericard. In 1976, they changed the name to VISA to go international. The name VISA was chosen because it sounded the same in every language. In the late 1970's I receive a mimeographed paper explaining how the new VISA cards were the "Mark … Continue reading VISA is the Mark of the Beast

666

666! Is there a scarier number to fundagelicals? It is, after all,  the "Mark of the Beast."(Revelation 13:18) As I mentioned in a previous post, I was cleaning out my garage and found an old box of books. (I'll admit there are many old boxes of books out there.) Among the treasures hidden in the … Continue reading 666

Are You Rapture Ready?

Growing up fundagelical, "The Rapture" was one of those topics I was taught and accepted but never questioned. (The Rapture for all you non-fundegelicals is when all the REAL Christians on earth will suddenly vanish. Think: Left Behind.)  We all talked and argued about the Rapture. The big argument was whether the Rapture was going … Continue reading Are You Rapture Ready?
