Okay, it’s been a busy year. I’ve written a lot, including answering atheism, evolution, Word Faith, and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Mind you, these were not detailed, in depth answerings. I’m busy with a myriad of other things. And to answer these topics (very needful) also meant putting some things off. My indignation button was leaned on quite heavily this year, but I didn’t want to interrupt what I was doing to comment at length on any of the issues.
We’ll just say a defense of the Bible is high in order in 2014. I’m going to defend it, prove it’s authenticity and inspiration, and I’m also going to ask some very pointed questions of its critics.
The one thing that caught me a lot of protests this year was when I began analyzing motivations behind why a person took a certain viewpoint. So, there’ll be some of that as well this year!
Another high priority is – although I’m staying out of politics, because (although I have strong beliefs) I think there’s been far too much confusion between Christianity and certain politicla parties. This was evidenced when a Mormon ran for president, and a large number of evangelicals fell all over themsevles in their haste to “Beg forgiveness for the ‘sin’ of Mormon-phobia”. Friends, its a false religion and a cult. And the horror of it set in when Franklin Graham (a man I used to respect) had all references to Mormonism being a cult removed from the BGEA website.
So, mormonism will be dealt with pretty thoroughly. Expect that one around February or so.
Calvinism is a big one, as it is treatening to swallow up the Southern Baptist Convention. And instead of doing the biblical thing and asking Calvinists to correct their errant doctrine, the SBC is instead attempting to find room on the chair for both beliefs to sit. What the SBC is unaware of, or ignoring it every time someone explains it, is that the Calvinists intend on stealing the chair. And then they will not hesitate to order us to change our beliefs – or be forced out of the convention. The very thing we’re refusing to do to them, they will do to us. Trust me. Because I predict that nobody will listen to me, and over the next 18 months you’ll see the SBC forced into Calvinism, and the rest of us will be forced out.
Church of Christ – they’re in the minority, but I have some plans to deal with them this coming year if time permits.
I need to finish the correct doctrine series, so I’ll be running that concurrent with other series’. Remember, the categories’ links on the right will help you to read everything I’ve written on a particular subject.
One of the big ways people get suckered into cults like Torah Observant Messianic Judaism, is a lack of understanding on how to use a Strong’s Concordance. Well, here’s the secret. You’ve got to learn some Greek and Hebrew to really grasp it. So I most definitely need to put up lessons in Biblical Greek and Hebrew. I need to really deal with T.O.M., as it ensnares quite a few people. And the fruit of it is usually the denial of Christ, which shows that if it is not Satanic, Satan has most definitely over-run it with wolves in sheep’s clothing.
I plan to finish up Buddhism, and deal with Hinduism. The rampant Hinduism in the US faltered once the Beatles broke up, so it’s not a priority – and I don’t think a reuniting of the Beatles is now a possibility!
Theres a lot coming in 2014, and I’m rushing to get it all done as fast as possible, because I believe the Rapture is imminent, and I have a lot to do. I also need to finish a lot of unfinished work on the Surviving the Tribulation website, as that will help people stay alive long after I’ve disappeared from this earth.
Stay tuned! Your support is critical. Just hitting a like button from time to time helps me to know my work is not in vain!
