Intro­duc­tion A. When most peo­ple think of fas­cism today they think of an ego­ma­ni­a­cal fuehrer, or pos­si­bly an ide­ol­o­gy that was defeat­ed in WWII and more recent­ly espoused by une­d­u­cat­ed skin­heads. The most com­mon, but large­ly false and sim­plis­tic answer giv­en to the ques­tion, What is fas­cism? is:?The extreme right wing of the polit­i­cal spec­trum, […]

A flood of great pro­por­tions is described in Gen­e­sis 6 – 9. The text nev­er indi­cates that it?was any­thing oth­er than a his­tor­i­cal event.

Exis­ten­tial­ism as a phi­los­o­phy, or world and life view, is large­ly a 20th cen­tu­ry phe­nom­e­non. It is the very antithe­sis of Chris­t­ian belief in that it asserts the total auton­o­my of man. Hence it is one of the most vir­u­lent forms of human­ism.

(No this is not polit­i­cal­ly cor­rect!) C. The […]

Divine elec­tion and pre­des­ti­na­tion are doc­trines taught in the Bible, yet?most believ­ers avoid these top­ics like last week’s left­over fish. It is?commonly believed that these sub­jects are bet­ter left to the­olo­gians with?too much time on their hands. The mere men­tion of elec­tion and?predestination strikes fear in the hearts of some, anger in oth­ers. When?Christians dis­cuss […]

by Bill Crouse I. Intro­duc­tion Cur­rent­ly, the whole world seems rife with con­spir­a­cy the­o­ries.? Some exam­ples: the recent win­ner of the Nobel prize announced, as she received the award, that Aids was cre­at­ed to rid the world of the Black Race; the recent tsuna­mi in Asia was caused by the Jews and the U.S. set­ting […]
