Baptism is another piece of doctrine that has split churches. I myself have been baptized as an infant, and then again as an adult. Was that necessary? Was the first baptism invalid? What does the Bible say about baptism?
That’s what we’re going to look at today. Continue reading
We’re going to take a break from prophecy for a couple of posts to deal with some other controversial topics.
Today we’re going to look at God’s laws regarding food and if they have any effect on us as Christians.
Last post we saw what happened when the righteous die, the sequence of events surrounding Christ’s return, and what happens between the time we die and Christ returns.
This post we’re going to look at what happens to the wicked. What awaits them when Christ returns? Where do they go for eternity? Continue reading
Last post we looked judgement and learned that there are two separate the distinct resurrections: one when Christ returns, and one a thousand years later.
This calls into question the issue of our soul’s mortality. Many Christians believe that when you die, you go straight to heaven, or hell. But, that cannot be if we are all go heaven at the same time as the Bible claims. What happens in the intervening time? Where are the souls of all the Christians who came before?

This post we’re looking at Daniel 8:14 specifically, where the prophecy states that after the 2300 years has ended, the sanctuary would be cleansed. What does that mean? Continue reading
We’ve spent the last few posts identifying the “little horn” of Daniel 7 and the “best” of Revelation 13. Now we’re going to head back to Daniel to cover chapter eight, Daniel’s longest prophecy.
Last post we looked at the Sabbath and some of the things the Bible says about it. How it’s timeless, instituted at creation and will continue into the new creation after all this has passed.
This post we’ll look at some of the arguments used by people who want to justify Sunday worship instead of Saturday. We’ll look at the Bible verses quoted and see what they really say. Continue reading
