Why I Am Not a Pacifist

Dr. Randy White On this Memorial Day, America pauses--ever so briefly--to remember its war heroes.  The peaceful and quiet observance of this day is indicative of the things that our war dead gave their lives for:  peace and calm, family and faith, and enough prosperity to take a day off work, close the office, and enjoy the things we most enjoy.  Few nations on earth have the kind of peace and prosperity that enable them to take a work-day and use it for relaxation.  For this, we are grateful.  Men and [...]

The Coming Kingdom, Part 3

Dr. Andy Woods-Sugar Land Bible Church Previous posts: Part 1, Part 2             Because today's evangelical world largely believes that the church is presently experiencing the messianic kingdom, we began a study chronicling what the Bible teaches concerning this important issue of the kingdom. That there will be a future, messianic kingdom on earth has been revealed thus far through the divine intention to restore the office of Theocratic Administrator (Gen. 1:26-28) that was lost in Eden (Gen. 3) as well as through the promise of a future, [...]

Economics, Torah Style

West Bank or Biblical Israel?

Dr. Randy White The term “West Bank” or the even more politically charged term “Occupied West Bank” is the “politically correct” designation for the land historically known as Judea and Samaria.  Students of the Bible will be interested to know that almost every Bible story they have ever read, studies, and loved took place in the “West Bank.” […]

Israel-centric Scriptures and Theological Make-believe

Dr. Randy White As the modern state of Israel celebrates its 64th birthday (click here for my article on Israel’s 63rd birthday), I want to analyze a couple of very Israel-centric Bible passages and show how many modern theologians have to play a game of Linguistic Twister to get the passage to mean something clearly different than it says.  You may be amazed at the verbal hoola-hoops and grammatical gymnastics that learned men of the cloth will perform in order to avoid a pro-Israel interpretation of undeniably pro-Israel passages in the [...]

Palestinians ‘Peoplehood’ Based on a Big Lie

Eli E. Hertz The Palestinians claim that they are an ancient and indigenous people fails to stand up to historic scrutiny. Most Palestinian Arabs were newcomers to British MandatePalestine. Until the 1967 Six-Day War made it expedient for Arabs to create a Palestinian peoplehood, local Arabs simply considered themselves part of the ‘great Arab nation’ or ‘southern Syrians.’ “Repeat a lie often enough and people will begin to believe it.” Nazi propaganda master Joseph Goebbels “All [that Palestinians] can agree on as a community is what they want to destroy, not [...]
