THE DANGER OF INTERNET HERESY (Friday Church News Notes, December 14, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The Internet is the greatest communication tool that has ever existed, and it has incalculable potential for broadcasting truth as well as error. U.S. President Trump has popularized the term “fake news,” and he is right. The world is full of fake information, not only fake political information, but every other type of information. The Internet is a dream come true for flat earthers and health food quacks and disinformation campaigners and heretics of every stripe. While truth barely gets a hearing in this fallen.. Read More

Israel Is Evidence

     The following is excerpted from Jews in Fighter Jets: Israel Past, Present, and Future, available in print and eBook editions from Way of Life Literature. View sample pages and table of contents.
    Israel is irrefutable evidence of the existence of God and of the divine inspiration of the Bible, which was written by Hebrew prophets.
    When Frederick the Great, the atheist king of Prussia, asked, “Can you give me one single irrefutable proof of God?” Jean-Baptiste de Boyer (Marquis d’Argens) replied, “Yes, your Majesty, the Jews.”
    Writing from Vienna in 1897, the American author Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) observed in his inimitable way, ”The Egyptians, the Babylonians and the Persians rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greeks and Romans followed and made a...

Book: Rome and the Bible

Rome Destroyed Bibles

     The following is abridged from the book Rome and the Bible: Tracing the History of the Roman Catholic Church and Its Persecution of the Bible and of Bible Believers, available from Way of Life Literature.
    Read the pdf book in your browser now.
     For 600 years the Roman Catholic Church attempted to keep vernacular translations of the Bible out of the hands of the people. The Council of Toulouse, in 1229, decreed that "the laity" could not possess the books of the Old and New Testament "in the vulgar tongue." Waldensian and other Bible-believing people were mercilessly persecuted and their Scriptures destroyed. The Council of Trent, in 1546, claimed that the indiscriminate distribution of the Scriptures caused more evil than good and forbade... Read More

Some Lessons on God’s Foreknowledge and Eternal Plans

     “Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began” (2 Timothy 1:9).
     What does it mean that God’s purpose and grace was given us before the world began?
     First, this doesn’t mean that God sovereignly chooses some to be saved.
     The doctrine of “sovereign election” as it was taught by Augustine and John Calvin, that God chose some to be saved and that God’s election has nothing to do with who will or will not believe, and that if I am not elect there is nothing I can do to be elect, might seem to be supported by some proof texts if those texts are isolated and if that doctrine is read into them, but the Calvinist doctrine of “sovereign election” is contrary to the tenor of the entire...

MORE PREPARATIONS FOR THE THIRD TEMPLE (Friday Church News Notes, December 7, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The preparation for the building of the Third Temple is reaching fever pitch. On December 10, the last evening of Hanukkah, the “nascent” Jewish Sanhedrin is planning to consecrate a stone sacrificial altar and perform the daily offering that occurred every morning and evening in the ancient temple. The sacrifice will be enacted by Kohanim (Levites) dressed in biblical priestly attire. It is not known whether the lamb will actually be sacrificed at the site, but meat will be roasted on the altar. The Temple Institute’s golden menorah will also be lit. The Sanhedrin was a council of rabbis who led the Israelites before and after the destruction of Herod’s Temple. It ceased to function in the fifth century AD, but in 2004 a group of orthodox Jewish groups announced that they were re-establishing it. The “nascent”.. Read More

America a Christian Nation?

     America is a nation deeply influenced by Christianity and the Bible, but this does not add up to a “Christian nation.”
     I love American history and have read hundreds of books directly bearing on this subject, including many dozens of biographies of America’s most influential early leaders as well as more recent ones.
     It can surely... Read More

Study the Bible Dispensationally

    One of the things that I am most thankful for in my Bible education is having been taught the importance of a normal-literal method of interpretation. I still fondly recall how that this opened up the Scriptures to me in a wonderful way when I was a young Christian. I didn’t accept it blindly. I had filled my mind and heart with Scripture before I went to Bible School, and I had learned to test all things by it. I was trusting in promises such as John 7:17 and 8:31-32, and the normal-literal method of interpretation rang true to me as soon as I heard it. I knew that it was the truth, and I sensed that it was a very important truth.
    I believe that a consistent application of the literal method of interpretation will result in a dispensational theology. We agree with the following statement by Charles Ryrie: “If plain or normal interpretation is the only valid hermeneutical principle and if it is consistently applied, it will cause one to be a dispensationalist. As basic as one believes normal... Read More

Christian Inventor R.G. Letourneau

    The following is based on the fascinating book Mover of Men and Mountains, the autobiography of R.G. LeTourneau (Moody Press, 1967).
    Robert G. LeTourneau (1888-1969) was a business magnate, philanthropist, and inventor who held nearly 300 patents.
    Known as “the dean of earthmoving,” LeTourneau is considered “to have been the world’s greatest inventor of earthmoving and materials handling equipment.” LeTourneau had a natural genius for engineering. Machines designed and built by LeTourneau represented nearly 70% of the earthmoving equipment and engineering vehicles used by the Allied forces during World War II. His earthmoving... Read More

Bible Commentaries and Twittering Swallows

     TWO COMMON PROBLEMS IN USING COMMENTARIES:
    1. Leaning on them too much.
    The Bible student should first go to the Bible and dig out as much meaning as possible for himself. For this, he must get a good understanding of how to interpret the Bible. The equivalent of a Bible Institute education is the starting point to be able to use commentaries effectually and test them properly so as not to be led astray by any error that might be present. We deal with this in the course The Effectual Bible Student, which is available as a free eVideo.. Read More
