Every October 31st, while much of the western world dresses up in ghoulish costumes, many Christians commemorate another important event that happened on October 31st, 1517. This was the day Roman Catholic monk, Martin Luther is traditionally said to have posted his 95 Theses (or 95 points of protest) on a church door in Wittenberg Germany. This would be considered the spark that led to the Protestant Reformation.
During his various disputes with the Roman Catholic Church, Luther debated agains [..]

After reading where a person I know will be getting a divorce for the second time, I thought about why people continue to follow the counsel of people who fail to succeed in their own lives. I mean, if you claim to be giver of wise counsel; especially on biblical matters, shouldn't your life reflect that? I understand that we all fail, but it is what we do with those failures that matters. And it should matter if the person continues to make the same mistake over and over; such as multiple divo [..]

As I become more and more disenchanted with the "leadership" within current Christianity, I've been looking for other organizations with which I can interact. Note, that this doesn't mean I am losing my faith, I just have no desire to interact with FRAUDS that claim to be "pastors" and "seminary presidents". These people are often liars and compromisers. So anyhow, I took a look at the American Freethinkers. I mean, if I am moving away from being manipulated by frauds, wouldn't I be thinking " [..]

Although I do not regularly post Bible studies, I still hold weekly Bible studies with my family and a few others.
This week we studied the Ten Commandments. You can find the Ten Commandments in complete form in two places in the Bible; Exodus 20:1-17 and Deuteronomy 5:4-21. Interestingly enough, depending what "authority" you follow, the division of the commandments is different.
Philonic Division -- after Philo, Hellenistic Jewish biblical philosopher (20 B.C.50 A.D.)

As many Americans and people around the world, I too tuned into the first 2012 presidential debate on October 3, 2012.
Barack Obama faced off with Mitt Romney in what is being presented as an election that may very well decide the course of a nation; not just in the short term but perhaps fundamentally.

Apologetix is a great group that has been ministering to people with their music since at least 1992. Not just any people, but young folks, our kids, our children with Christian "parody" renditions of popular secular songs.
This site has featured Apologetix several times including a concert review I posted in 2008 -- http://thekingdomcome.com/apo [..]

A "tar-baby" is any issue that is difficult to extract one's self from after engaging. Tar-baby specifically comes from the 1881 book, Br'er Rabbit (source) where the character Br'er Rabbit fights with a Tar-baby and becomes increasingly stuck to the tar on the baby.
Sometimes people, especially politicians like to act like an issue is a tar-baby; an issue not worth addressing because it would only bog them down in needless and endless dispute, and indeed there are issues like this. But sometime [..]

I have been working on a book on Preterism for some time now. I'd like to share the introduction with my readers. There is more to the book, but this is just a taste of it so far.
Roderick Edwards spent 15 years within the Full or Hyper-Preterist movement. His writings while all online were very profuse and varied on topics many Preterist writers never thought to consider; such as the validity of pastors if indeed the Chief Shepherd came in AD70.
Edwards always held a strained relati [..]

Barack Obama declared that his presidency would be the most transparent in history when in fact it has been one of the most secretive. In July 2012, after Obama's Press Secretary, Jay Carney was extolling Obama's supposed policy of openness a report asked a pointed question:
One thing that people at least his opponents continue to bring up is his college records... but Carney cut him short.

Whether it is when we talk about sports, politics, theology or any other topic, we use a specific language, or words that are specific to the topic. For instance, in American football, there are words like touchback, downs, yardage which have specific meaning.
In a Bible Study at my home on July 6, 2012; our group talked about the language of theology and what it means. For example, we addressed three words:
Eisegetics - In (to/of)
Exegetics - Out (to/of)
Apologetics - Defense (to/of)

After over 8 years in existence, I'm thinking about closing the TKC website. Not for lack of activity since the site has on average, over 6500 hits a day and 200,000 hits a month.

Dallas, the long running television series that began in 1978 and ended in 1991 was revived on June 13, 2012. The new series picks up with following the lives of the sons of the Ewing brothers. If you have watched the original series, the Ewings are oilmen in Texas.
The ongoing theme in the show is a tension between elder brother J.R. Ewing and younger brother Bobby Ewing. J.R. is depicted as unscrupulous and power hungry whereas Bobby is depicted as principled and moralistic. The original s [..]

Back in May 2010 I suggested a graduation speech where the reality is that most of the graduates will not go on to do monumental things. I said that despite that most commencement speeches talk about how the graduates should go out and "change" the world. Rather, we need more people who are trying to simply maintain those good and noble things; especially against those who are always trying to "change" those good and noble things to bad things and ignoble things.

It used to be that when America reluctantly but finally became involved in a conflict or a war, the oppressed welcomed our involvement. Our involvement usually meant that the end result was a more stabilized nation that would give more opportunity to more people.
So, why wouldn't Muslims want America's involvement in overthrowing the dictatorial regimes controlling most of the Islamic world?

As a guy, a man married to the same woman for 22 years, and the father of an 18 year old daughter whom has dated a few guys -- I want to offer this "guide to guys".
Girls seem to think guys are difficult to understand, but really, most guys are fairly simple. Most guys are driven by a few things but not necessarily in this order:

(3) Sleep (mainly naps)
After that, guys can be broken down into types (mix and match too):

The Bible says "But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;" -- 1 Cor 1:27
Many well-meaning Christians think this means we ought to be in a perpetual state of self imposed impotency when it comes to expressing our faith. They want to revel in a form of pity. But is that what the Bible is saying to do?

First, by "Post-Christian" I simply mean that much of Western civilization is becoming increasingly secularized, moving away from daily expression and adherence to Christian principles. So, in understanding that meaning, when I address the topic of women in a post-Christian world I want to contrast that with the roles, attitudes, and behavior of women in this post-Christian world. I will address both Christian and non-Christian women.
Let's establish the roles, attitudes and behavior of women wh [..]

Arguments aren't simply disagreements, but propositions. An argument is any point that is being made. It need not be a negative or hostile point.

Many young people get their idea about how to do relationships, either from their friends, who equally don't have long term experience, or from a magazine (typically written by people who have little successful experience), or from examples of not very successful family members (such as parents that don't really get along).

As I get older I'm beginning to think the things older adults need to think about. Adults, 50 and older typically join AARP -- American Association of Retired Persons never realizing its background. AARP tries to pretend it is a non-partisan organization yet just peruse the AARP website and it becomes obvious of its liberal slant. For example, its section on politics had an article about trying to scare older Americans that they aren't going to be able to vote. Why? Because of the laws requir [..]

When I speak of religionists I usually get support from folks who think our faith should be less "institutional" but I'm not really talking about that. Christianity is of course a religion. James 1:26-27 speaks of Christianity as a religion.
However a "religionist" makes his religion his religion. Or plainly, the practice of a person's religion becomes his religion. How he performs. How he worships. How he speaks. It really doesn't matter what religion it is. It could be Christianity, Islam, [..]

Altruism is often defined as Regard for others, both natural and moral; devotion to the interests of others; brotherly kindness; opposed to egoism or selfishness.
With this as the definition, who wouldn't want to implement an altruistic lifestyle, and especially if the person is a Christian? I mean, isn't that the point of Jesus' message? Be nice to people.

This riveting portrayal of a true story of the stoning of an innocent woman in Iran will move even the most heartless person. The sense you will come away with is not simply that stoning people is barbaric; since of course our own Bible has commanded it at times; rather the blatant injustice and the plotting by evil men will make you want to expose every liar and hypocrite for who they are...no matter how "noble" and "holy" they attempt to depict themselves.

Perhaps the best free software I've found for helping to manage or organize your ebooks is an open source program called Calibre. Calibre was created by Kovid Goyal in 2006 and has ever-since been developed by a team of open source enthusiasts.
Although Calibre is a combination of the word libre, meaning freedom, thus indicating its free open-source nature, Goyal suggests it be pronounced Cali-ber.

The usual claim is that doctrines like the Trinityi or forensic Justificationi by faith alone are "new" doctrines. That is, that these doctrines didn't exist at the time of the apostles or within the early Church. Depending on the honesty of the individual, the claim will be that these and other doctrines are completely new doctrines or that they are "developed" doctrines. By developed, they usually mean that the doctrines were there all along in the Bible but had to be better developed or unde [..]

As I have engaged in "discussions" about the Bible, I want to be careful how I present this article. I am not advocating avoiding vigorous stances on key doctrinal issues. But lately, as I watch some supposed "experts" argue with what they label as "folk theologians" I've noticed how pointless their arguments are. They are arguing over whether Paul actually saw the same physical Jesus as the other apostles did. See Acts 9:1-9, Acts 9:27, Acts 22:6-11, Acts 26:12-18, and 1 Cor 15:7-8.

With the debate in the United States over whether religious organizations; especially the Roman Catholic Church should be forced by the government to pay for its employees birth control there is need to address this issue.

How would it affect your faith if the existence of aliens was proven without a doubt? Sure, this is a highly speculative question but so have been questions that Christians in the past had to face.
How did Christianity handle the idea that there was more to the world than Europe, Asia, and Africa? How did Christianity handle it when flight was finally possible? How did Christianity handle it when we finally left earth's orbit?

Although I'm using the past-tense, "was" here, it is possible that a case could be made that heretics should still be killed but I'm not the one making that case. I guess we first must ask; What makes a person a heretic? Typically you will hear that heresy is simply going against the predominant view, in this case against whatever expression of Christianity is dominant. This is where a person may claim that everyone is a heretic to someone else over some issue or another; thus making relativisti [..]

If we believe God is in control of all things; good and bad then even those people who seem to escape justice will get their due in time -- sooner or later.
Psalms often addresses the apparent injustice in the world and how God will eventually make recompense. We see this in Psalms 7:1-17 for example.
I have been meditating on this theme more and more lately as I have become disillusioned by fake "leaders" of the faith who compromise with and coddle error. But as Psalms 7:3-5 says, let us be h [..]

In a world so neutered, so sissified by political correctness; so "tolerant" of the most debase thoughts and activities where does a person go to find strength against such impotence?
Modern Christianity is often portrayed as a refuge for people barely able to function in life. It is considered the refuge for the weak and dysfunctional.
So, where can a person go to find strength, boldness, and confidence? Christianity used to provide this. It used to be a religion that made people "more than c [..]

It is often common today to say things like "I'm sorry" or "I apologize" when you have somehow wronged a person in some way. But these phrases don't carry the sense of remorse the phrase; "Forgive me" carries. To say "I'm sorry" could mean many things, such as; "I'm sorry I got caught" or "I'm sorry you don't like it but...". Similarly, the word apology actually means "to make a defense", such as in the concept of Christian Apologetics. Someone who is truly remorseful for what they have done [..]

But are we naive to think the new year will be any different than the previous if we do nothing different? This is where we are usually urged to make a resolution; a resolution to do or not do something in the new year.

The third episode of the REAL Antithesis Hour. We continue our discussion on some key time-texts that Full/Hyperpreterists point to as having an AD70 terminus and where historic Christianity says most often speaks of Christ's glorification. We get mo

Take a moment to compare these two videos. The first is Emergent/Postmodernist Rob Bell complaining how Christians shouldn't be telling anyone they are in danger of going to hell.
The next video is Todd Friel from The Way of the Master, comparing di

Now you can friend TKC on Facebook. My policy there will be to "friend" anyone that requests (even hyperpreterists and those who validate that heresy). I want the TKC Facebook extension to be a place where we can get everything out in the open. Unli

The second episode of the REAL Antithesis Hour will be recorded Thursday April 7th and uploaded by the 8th. During this show the hosts, Roderick Edwards and RiversOfEden will open the "mailbag" and discuss feedback from the first episode. We'll als

Actually I am combining two weeks worth of Bible studies in this one posting. Our group is pleased to announce the birth of Solomon Jacob S. The Lord blessed the couple with a wonderful son. Also, our group hosted the grandmother for one of our stu

We have all experienced listening to a sermon where a sports analogy was used to make the point. There is certainly nothing wrong with trying to get a person to understand the point of the Bible by employing something a person can grasp from their e

Welcome to the very first episode of The (NEW) Antithesis Hour with your host Roderick Edwards. In these hour long podcasts we will tackle no holds barred, controversial issues. No kid-gloves. No wishy-washy relativism. No good-ole buddy chats ab

So, we Christians have all been in the situation where we are either sitting under the guidance of or know of a pastor who is teaching bad or wrong doctrine. What is our obligation as "laymen"? Perhaps it depends on the severity of the bad doctrine.

TKC has a pretty good collection of "feeds" from other websites (see here) but I'd like to give people the opportunity to contribute more. Send me a feed or more via the contact form and if it is a sound, historic Christian site or a site that is no

Our study group continues our study through Genesis. This week we studied Gen 14-17. It is difficult because the context and the many place/personal names. The summary is that Abram and his family, including his nephew Lot were living in the Canaan

TKC will be starting a new podcast series. The inspiration for this new podcast series comes from a failed podcast program of the same name. Why would a failed program inspire a new podcast? The reason the previous program failed, was because first

Occasionally I receive emails about thekingdomcome.com's content. Many are from Emergent-types telling me how I'm not lovey-dovey enough but I receive many rather interesting emails that are worthy of interaction. What follows is an email from some

First, when people hear the word "heretic" or "heresy" they often feel some pity or sympathy for the person being called a heretic. Perhaps it is human nature to feel sorry for and root for the underdog. But is there EVER a right time to describe s

I've been a Christian since 1984. I, like many long term Christians have made many transitions over the years. Christians in general seem to go through some observable stages. First, an excited zeal where they desire to share their new faith with

We continue our study through Genesis as we look at Genesis 9-13, the account immediately after the Flood. Noah and his family rode out the storms and waters up from the deep.
In Gen 9:3 we see God appears to now bid humans to eat meat

In the 15th and 16th centuries Europe experienced a series of world changing revolutions. Christians may think of it as the time when the Protestants opposed the Roman Catholic Church but there was more to it than religious revolution. The populati

This week we will continue our studies in Genesis with Gen 5-8.
As you may recall, Gen 5 details the genealogy of Adam's family from Adam to Noah. Gen 6 relates God's "unhappiness" with mankind and the subsequent plan to "wipe humans from the face o

The fall of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak supposedly marks a significant change in the Arab/Muslim world. Some media is touting it as freedom and democracy coming to Egypt. But I wonder if that illusion will actually materialize. For instance,

As readers may have noticed, I haven't posted for a while on our weekly Bible study group. We are still meeting but sometimes not as frequently due to the weather in our region. Also, there have been a few studies that were so casual, I didn't take

I've been a Christian for 27 years and of that time I've seen and been in many theological "fights". Some were merely minor disagreements but some were on par with the most brutal UFC match. There are many reactions to such fierce theological rumbl

The turmoil in Egypt may be a precursor to a revolution that will finally bring the Muslim world into the 21st century. On the heels of revolution in the Muslim country of Tunisia, Egypt as well as Yemen may be heading down the same path.

As a regular listener to the Rush Limbaugh show, I find that liberalism is almost identical in the theological world as it is in the political. You have all the same elements; liberals, conservatives, "RINOS" (Republican in Name Only) compromisers a

In states and cities all over America and Canada from the early 1960s back most businesses were closed on Sundays. This mindset stems from what has been called "The Blue Laws". These laws were enacted to respect what is often considered the Christi

As Sam Frost's unofficial nemesis I thought it fitting to address the major change going on in his theological world. As many readers may know, Frost is a dynamic "theologian" that had been a major leader within the Full or Hyper Preterist movement.
