Proof Texts of Replacement Theology
The following is excerpted from What About Steven Anderson?, which is available for free viewing or as a free eBook from www.wayoflife.org--
Having seen in the last chapter that the Bible consistently and repeatedly teaches that God is not finished with the nation Israel and that the church has not replaced Israel, let’s examine some major proof texts that are used to support Replacement Theology.
Briefly, Replacement Theology takes a few verses out of context and uses them to overthrow the teaching of the entire Bible. This, of course, is the standard operation procedure of false teaching.
Matthew 21:43 - “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”
If this verse were isolated, it could teach that God was finished with Israel and that the church... Read More
Friday Church News Notes
TESTS DATE CLADDING OF CHRIST’S TOMB TO FOURTH CENTURY AD (Friday Church News Notes, December 8, 2017, www.wayoflife.org firstname.lastname@example.org, 866-295-4143) - The first ever tests of the tomb purporting to be Christ’s in Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulcher date the marble cladding and mortar to the fourth century AD, the time of Constantine (“Age of Jesus Christ’s Purported Tomb Revealed,” National Geographic, Nov. 28. 2017). The OSL (optically stimulated luminescence) tests were independently conducted by two labs. This is further confirmation that the tomb is the correct one. In about 135, the Roman emperor Hadrian built a Venus temple over the site then revered as Christ’s. Since this ... Read More
The Chariot of God
Excerpted from The Future According to the Bible.
In Ezekiel chapter one we read:
“4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
“5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. 6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. 7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. 8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces ...

The following is from the new Believer’s Bible Dictionary, which is available in print and eBook editions from www.wayoflife.org.
The word soul has various meanings in Scripture. (Every Bible word must be defined by its context.) Sometimes soul refers to biological life in general. In this sense, the Hebrew word translated soul (nephesh) is used for animals (Ge. 1:20-24). But animals are never said to have a soul like man has a soul. Sometimes soul refers to the whole man (Ge. 2:7; Le. 17:12). Often, though, it refers to the immaterial part of man that exists beyond death.
The Soul Is the Immaterial Part of Man that Exists after Death. O.T. examples of the soul as an immaterial part of the man are seen in Ge. 35:18 and 1 Ki. 17:21-22. In Ge. 35:18, Rachel’s soul departed when she died. In 1 Ki. 17:21-22, the boy’s soul departed when he died and returned when he was raised from the dead. In the N.T., the word “soul” is also used to... Read More

The Shack's Cool God
The Shack, authored by William Paul Young, is a novel that explores the issue of why God allows pain and evil. It is a fictional account of a man who is bitter against God for allowing his youngest daughter to be murdered and who returns to the scene of the murder, an old shack in the woods, to have a life-changing encounter with God. The “God” that he encounters, though, is not the God of the Bible.
Published in 2007, The Shack was Number One on the New York Times bestseller list for 50 weeks. By 2012, it had sold 18 million copies internationally. It is being translated into 30 languages.
The movie was released in March 2017, and the power of film has doubtless impelled the novel’s heretical message to an even larger audience.
The soundtrack features “Christian rapper Lacrae, Skillet, Hillsong United, Francesa Battistelli... Read More
America Is Apostate and the Preachers Are to Blame
America is apostate.
America is not dead. America is not finished. America is still “the greatest nation on God’s green earth,” as one prominent talk radio host says. America still has more true Christians than any other nation. America is still a friend of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their seed. America is still a land of liberty, though her priceless freedoms are being lost bit by bit, day by day. America still has great strength, and petty dictators... Read More
The Earth Is Flat and We Didn’t Land on the Moon
The following is excerpted from “Is the Earth Flat?” by Dr. Danny Faulkner, Answers In Genesis, May 24, 2016:
“Once one postulates a flat earth, it leads to other preposterous claims. If the earth is flat rather than a sphere, then it is inconceivable that we have ventured into space. In the previously mentioned interview with Eric Dubay, he denied that there are any satellites orbiting the earth or that astronauts have gone into space. He claims that all photos and videos taken from space are faked. For example, Dubay says that the famous photograph of the earth taken by the Apollo 17 astronauts is a computer-generated image. Of course, this line of argumentation... Read More
