Christian Drinking Is a Bellwether Issue

    The rapid change in attitude toward drinking among “Bible believing” Christians is a major sign of the times.
    When I was a kid growing up in a Southern Baptist church, evangelicals and Baptists in America did not drink and did not go to bars. Exceptions were rare. Schools such as Wheaton and Baylor had rules against drinking.
    By the 1960s, due to the influence of the loose, anti-separatist New Evangelical philosophy.. Read More

Shekinah

    The concept of “shekinah” is from the Talmud. It is often identified with the glory of God mentioned in Scripture (Ex. 16:10; 24:16; 40:34), even by Christians, but the Hebrew term for “glory” in Scripture is “kabowd”; “shekinah” is never used.
    Shekinah appears often in the Babylonian Talmud, and it refers to a manifestation of God or the presence of God. It is likened to the flow of divine energy or the reflected light of God.
    The Talmud says, “Whenever ten are gathered for prayer, there the Shekinah rests” (Sanhedrin 39a), and, “Wheresoever they were exiled, the shekinah went with them” (Megillah 29a).
    In Kabbalah, shekinah is supposed to be the feminine aspect of God.
    Shekinah is supposed to abide in and permeate particular objects such as the Temple Mount. Many of those who pray at the western wall of the Temple Mount are trying to.. Read More

REJECTION OF BIBLE SEPARATION A SLIPPERY SLOPE (Friday Church News Notes, July 6, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The rejection of Bible separation is a slippery slope. It begins in “small” ways with “a little leaven” and takes incremental steps, always moving farther away from the Bible’s teaching on separation. The rejection of separation begins softly and quietly. It is something that can be difficult to put one’s finger on, something not easy to identify. It is a change of mood as much as... Read More

Vigilance and Separation in the Internet Age

    The following is excerpted from THE MOBILE PHONE AND THE CHRISTIAN HOME AND CHURCH.
    “Neither give place to the devil” (Eph. 4:27).
    “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Eph. 5:11).
    “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise” (Eph. 5:15).
    “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean.. Read More

THE SHACK AUTHOR PREACHES UNIVERSALISM (Friday Church News Notes, June 29, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - William Paul Young, author of the popular and influential novel The Shack, said in a recent interview that those who die without faith in Jesus Christ will have further opportunities for salvation. He says, “Romans itself says that death can’t separate you from the love of God. ... I don’t think death is our damnation. I think that Jesus is both our salvation and rightful judge but that judgment is intended for our good, not our harm” (“The Shack author on God the Father, sexual sin and the afterlife,” EternityNews.com, Australia, Jun. 20, 2018). Young is a false teacher who is saying what many people want to hear. He is one of those “heaps of teachers” described in the prophecy of 2 Timothy 4:3-4 who scratch the ears of those who want a kind of Christianity that allows them to live according to their lusts. William Young abuses and twists Scripture terribly, ignoring context which is the most fundamental rule... Read More

The Partridge

     The partridge that is mentioned in the Bible is of the pheasant family (phasiandae). There are two varieties in Israel today, the see-see partridge (Ammoperdix griseopularis or Ammoperdix heyi) and the chukar (Alectoris chukar). They are similar in appearance, and both are similar to the rock partridge (Alectoris graeca). In this study, we will focus on the chukar, which is the most beautiful of these partridges.

The Bible Critics Were Wrong

    Bible critics have been proven wrong a thousand times, and in most cases this hasn’t humbled them or changed their opinion toward Scripture. This reminds us of what Abraham said in Luke 16:31.
    “And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they... Read More

Isaiah’s Great Prophecy of Tyre

     The following is excerpted from a new commentary on Isaiah, which is scheduled for publication soon in the Way of Life Commentary Series:
    1. Tyre was a great city in ancient times. She was the chief city of the far-flung Phoenician Empire. Isaiah calls Tyre “the crowning city” (Isa. 23:8). Its antiquity was of ancient days (Isa. 23:7). It was built partly on the coast and partly on a rocky island standing some distance away in the Mediterranean sea.
    2. Isaiah’s prophecy looks beyond the historical city of Tyre to Satan’s world kingdom which is motivated by covetousness and greed. Ezekiel 28:11-19 tells us that the “king of Tyre” is Satan. Babylon and Tyre represent different aspects of the satanic world system. Babylon represents the religious, idolatrous aspect, whereas Tyre represents the commercial aspect whereby men selfishly seek wealth, luxury, and comfort by any means.
    3. Isaiah describes Tyre’s extensive commercial enterprises.... Read More
