Question of the Day: What does the Bible say about suicide?

Daniel 11

Episode 157: Daniel 11 is a hotbed for all kinds of faulty notions, especially pertaining to Antichrist. However, as I show in this episode, the vision is for Daniel’s people in the 2nd century BC when a brutal dictator named Antiochus IV Epiphanes rises to power. Tune in as I break this down.

Question of the Day: Why are there so many interpretations of the Bible?

Daniel 10

Episode 156: Daniel 10 is somewhat of a respite from the prophetic visions. It records that has another vision, but the details of the vision are yet forthcoming in chapter 11. In the meantime, Daniel’s reaction to the vision as well as God’s response to Daniel’s reaction are on display. Tune in a I walk us through the prologue, as it were, for chapters 11 & 12.

Question of the Day: Can we all understand the Bible alike?

Zimmerman Verdict

Zimmerman Verdict

Episode 152: Last Saturday, six jurors rendered their verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman: not guilty. Several news commentators had anticipated this verdict. Civil rights leaders and critics were upset about the verdict. News anchors repeatedly used the word “stunned” in their coverage. Even the President made a statement asking that Americans “honor” Trayvon Martin’s memory by remaining calm and pursuing peace. Tune in as I attempt to cut through the secondhand smoke of the world and point us toward a counter-cultural spiritual reality which rises above race divide in our country.
