A Book of Contradictions? | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

A Book of Contradictions?By Jack Kinsella A reader emailed me to let me know that he knows for a fact that the Rapture is a false doctrine invented by J.N. Darby in the 1830’s. Not only is he certain of his facts, he offered me $1000.00 to prove him wrong. All I have to do to collect it is satisfy him that he is wrong. To make his case, he sent me a whole pageful of URLs from other like-minded…

Where the Evidence Leads | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

Where the Evidence LeadsBy Jack Kinsella We live in an age of miracles unlike any the world has ever known. In this generation, man has unlocked the secret of the genome, can ‘create’ life in a test tube, can duplicate that which is already created [cloning], develop medicines and compounds that can prolong life, and it appears there is nothing that we cannot do. Science expects to one day be able to control the elements, bring rain where drought is,…

Rebels With A Cause | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

Rebels With A CauseBy Jack Kinsella Forty years ago the Supreme Court legalized abortion throughout the United States, a new survey shows a strong majority of Americans now believe abortion to be “morally wrong.” Morally wrong? How can this be? To imply there is some kind of universal moral code also implies the existence of a moral code Giver. Isn’t that illegal? Even more surprising is the finding that the strongest opponents of abortion are the ones most directly affected…

It Makes a Difference, Mrs. Clinton – End Times Christian Article

It Makes a Difference, Mrs. ClintonBy Jack Kinsella It was the appearance that we’d all been waiting for. We’d heard from most everybody else, but not word one from Hillary Clinton about the Benghazi affair. As Secretary of State, this is her bailiwick and so the naïve among us thought that, at last, we’d get some answers. We had especially hoped to get an answer to the question, “why did you blame a spontaneous protest gone bad?” together with some…

‘Strange’ Doesn’t Quite Cover It – End Times Christian Article

‘Strange’ Doesn’t Quite Cover ItBy Jack Kinsella The Bible’s outline for the last days has always been considered a little strange to scholars. The Books of Daniel and the Revelation were so strange that great expositors like Calvin and Luther omitted them from their Bible commentaries. The strangeness of the heads, horns and beasts, etc., convinced previous generations that the books were largely symbolic, and to be understood in the context of history, rather than future prophecy. Everything about the…

If The World Hates You – End Times Christian Article

If The World Hates YouBy Jack Kinsella “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:18-19) The persecution of Christians is hardly a twenty-first century phenomenon. The persecution of Christians is as old as Christianity itself. In today’s…

All Hail Mother Gaia | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

All Hail Mother GaiaBy Jack Kinsella The first Earth Day celebration was conceived by then U.S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson and held in 1970 as a ”symbol of environmental responsibility and stewardship”. What is interesting is the universal recognition — in this generation — that the Earth is in trouble. Everybody, regardless of their religious views — or lack thereof — can see the handwriting on the wall — even if they refuse to admit it was written in advance. For…

On National Christianity | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

On National ChristianityBy Jack Kinsella I was surprised by the number of you who took me to task by email or in the forums for my comments that the Ten Commandments seem to me an incongruous choice for the battlefield upon which American Christianity would make its stand. Among the various objections were that I sounded a bit anti-Semitic, that I was arguing against the Ten Commandments, that I was advocating disobedience or a license to sin, and so forth.…

Dhimmis United Against America | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

Dhimmis United Against AmericaBy Jack Kinsella ‘Dhimmitude’ is the status mandated for non-Muslims, primarily Christians and Jews who live under Islamic rule. The word ‘dhimmi’ means ‘protected people’ who, under Islamic law, are free to practice their religion in an Islamic regime. However, dhimmis are also subject to rules and regulations designed to ensure ‘they feel themselves subdued’ as mandated for dhimmis under the Koran. For the West, it is a good news, bad news scenario. The bad news is…

Brains, Washed, Spun-Dry and Folded – End Times Christian Article

Brains, Washed, Spun-Dry and FoldedBy Jack Kinsella The phrase ‘mind control’ refers to the successful control of the thoughts and actions of others without his or her expressed consent. In the most general sense, the term implies that the victim has given up some basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes, and has been made to accept contrasting ideas. Mind control, when exercised as a government policy, turned Germany from the most cultured nation in Europe into a nation…

The Covenants | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

The CovenantsBy Jack Kinsella I received the following email from a fellow who signed his name “Pastor” Steve. I am always a bit wary of those who sign off a personal email with their title and their first name. It seems like a contrived formality. “Pastor” is the honorific bestowed upon the leader of a local church. It identifies a person as the shepherd over a particular flock. I’m not sure how it is relevant outside the local church. In…

‘Fair’ Is a Call in Baseball – End Times Christian Article

‘Fair’ Is a Call in BaseballBy Jack Kinsella I got an email from a reader recently that complained that God is not being fair by condemning non-Christians to hell. If God was fair, claimed my correspondent, He’d give everybody a second chance. We’ll deal with the second chance idea first, and then go back to the issue of God being ‘fair’. Salvation is a win-win scenario, both for those of us who are saved, and for God. God extends His…

The Battle for Jerusalem | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

The Battle for JerusalemBy Jack Kinsella Fifty years ago, on June 7, 1967, Israeli Defense Forces captured East Jerusalem from the Jordanians at the conclusion of the Six Days War. I don’t want you to miss the significance of this event. In 589 BC, King Nebucadnezzar of Babylon imposed a siege on the city that lasted for more than three years: “And it was in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of…

Four Resurrections — One Judgment – End Times Christian Article

Four Resurrections — One JudgmentBy Jack Kinsella During the thousand year Millennial Reign, the earth will be populated by ordinary, living, breathing humans, some of whom survived the Tribulation Period, together with those who will be born (in the usual manner) during the Kingdom Period. The human lifespan will return to what it was in the days of Adam, but they will be mortal humans in the sense that, even with Satan bound, men will still die, and sin will…

The ‘Jetsons’ Was Fiction?? | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

The ‘Jetsons’ Was Fiction??By Jack Kinsella When I was a kid, the 21st century loomed large as a bright and shiny future world where wars would be abolished, the world would all be one big happy family, and we’d all talk on videophones and drive to work in flying cars. I anticipated it being a lot like it was pictured on “The Jetsons” — and in some ways, it is. Jane Jetson would dial in a number and food would…

Religion and Salvation | Rapture Forums – End Times Christian Article

Religion and SalvationBy Jack Kinsella At Babel, God deliberately confused the languages of men and dispersed them into different nations. The purpose, according to Genesis, was to prevent them from all coming under the authority of a single dictator, as happened under Nimrod. “And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” (Genesis 11:6)…
