This work differs from previous treatments of End Times Issues in the following ways. I present an analysis of the Greek New Testament scripture to explain why the Rapture, Tribulation, and Second Coming are not imminent, which is consistent with the fact that these events have not occurred in the past 2000 years. I argue that the Scriptural descriptions of the destruction of the earth in the End Times is not consistent with the capabilities of nuclear weapons and that a different scenario is required to explain the scriptural description of 2 Peter 3 - the destruction of the earth by intense heat and burning and also the death of one-third of the people that inhabit the earth. I then suggest a scenario that is capable of causing the destruction of the earth and is caused by God not mankind, which is consistent with scripture. I present arguments that the scriptural conditions that must be met (occur) before the Rapture and Second Coming can occur are not likely to occur soon. I see no possibility of a ten-kings empire in Europe. If the entire ex-Roman Empire is considered, then it could be. I suggest that the ten nations are those of the old Roman Empire that are not in Europe - the ten that are closer to Israel and are all primarily Arab/Islamic. I give a scientific explanation of the 'streets of transparent gold' described in Revelation. I discuss scriptures individually that relate to The End Times.

Many churches today have become ineffective to the kingdom of God because they no longer obey the mandate from our Lord, Jesus Christ. While many churches are boasting about numbers and membership, the actual purpose of the Christian church, making disciples, seems to have gotten lost or overlooked. Using illustrations and down-to-earth language, Jay Leach unlocks practical principles that illustrate the growth of a disciple from rebirth to maturity. Not only will we enjoy eternal life in the future, but we will enjoy eternal life here and now. How? By knowing our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In the Bible, knowing carries with it the connotation of intimacy. To enjoy eternal life now, we must have a knowing and intimate relationship with Christ. Relationship and intimacy bring with them the creation of a new nature and purpose, of forward movement to a fruitful adult discipleship; they also provide a clear understanding of salvation and the process of growing into a mature disciple. The church can provide nurture through small groups and other team-building ministries, but to become a disciple requires a personal commitment. How Should We Then Live? will explain how to form this very special relationship with Jesus Christ.

Francis Schaeffer And The Shaping Of Evangelical America

Francis Schaeffer (1912-1984) was probably the single greatest intellectual influence on young evangelicals of the 1960s and '70s. He was cultural critic, popular intellectual mentor, political activist, evangelist, Christian apologist, and the author of over twenty books and two important films. Along with his wife, Edith, he founded L'Abri, a loving community of intellectual and spiritual exploration where visitors ranged from European existentialists to American evangelicals and even some radicals. In America he lectured widely on college campuses, where he encouraged world-wary evangelicals to engage the culture around them. Along the way he attracted a great many admirers, a few critics, many admirers who became critics, and a few critics who learned to admire him. It is, in short, impossible to understand the intellectual world of evangelicalism today without understanding Francis Schaeffer. Barry Hankins has written a critical but appreciative biography that explains how Schaeffer was shaped by the contexts of his life - from young fundamentalist pastor in America, to greatly admired mentor, to lecturer and activist. Drawing extensively from primary sources, including personal interviews, Hankins paints a picture of a complex, sometimes flawed, but ultimately prophetic figure in American evangelicalism and beyond.

2000 Gold Medallion Award winner! Christianity is more than a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also a worldview that not only answers life's basic questions—Where did we come from, and who are we? What has gone wrong with the world? What can we do to fix it?—but also shows us how we should live as a result of those answers. How Now Shall We Live? gives Christians the understanding, the confidence, and the tools to confront the world's bankrupt worldviews and to restore and redeem every aspect of contemporary culture: family, education, ethics, work, law, politics, science, art, music. This book will change every Christian who reads it. It will change the church in the new millennium.

The Outrageous Idea Of The Missional Professor

The outrageous idea of this book is that God wants to use professors as professors to reach others, transform the academy, and meet the needs of the world. God is on a mission to redeem and restore this fallen world, and as members of one of the most influential institutions in society, Christian professors in the university play an important role in that mission. Becoming a missional professor will require a clear vision of God's heart for the lost as well as humankind's purpose and calling under the banner of Christ, an understanding of the significance of the university as a cultural shaping institution and mission field, and a desire for Christian wholeness in a fragmented world. This idea is outrageous because many Christian professors struggle to live missionally and need a clear vision of such a life as well as role models to lead the way. Many professors already living missional lives need encouragement to "excel still more" (1 Thess 4:10). We all need God's grace and mercy as we try to faithfully follow Christ within the university.

Does God really exist? Or is He just a grandiose delusion passed down through the millennia to help us deal with our nagging need to find a purpose for our existence? The author grew up in a believing household, never questioning the existence of God, but as he grew older and more interested in his faith, he developed a driving need to know whether or not his faith was justified. A totally blind faith, one that couldn't be supported with any hard evidence, just wouldn't do. If God was real, then He must have left a trail of evidence for a rational thinker to follow. But if there wasn't any trail to follow, then all faith would be blind, and any faith would do as it would become little more than a set of guidelines to follow in an attempt to lead a spiritual and moral life. The author began his exploratory journey with a set of questions that needed to be answered. Do any of the world's religious scriptures reveal information that has parallels in scientific discovery? Do any of the world's religious scriptures offer specific prophesies that have unfolded in recorded history? And lastly, did any of the world's religious scriptures provide a blueprint for living that could drastically change one's life from the inside out? As he sought answers to these questions, he discovered an overwhelming amount of supporting evidence, but it came with a catch: it all pointed in one decisive direction. KELLY RYAN HARRIGER lives in Pennsylvania. He spent most of his working career in Los Angeles, California, as a professional writer in the world of advertising, marketing and entertainment before returning to his boyhood home in Pennsylvania, where he now works as a marketing and advertising consultant for small businesses and non-profit groups.

More than the citizens of most countries, Americans are either religious or in jail--or both. But what does it mean when imprisonment and evangelization actually go hand in hand, or at least appear to? What do "faith-based" prison programs mean for the constitutional separation of church and state, particularly when prisoners who participate get special privileges? In Prison Religion, law and religion scholar Winnifred Fallers Sullivan takes up these and other important questions through a close examination of a 2005 lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a faith-based residential rehabilitation program in an Iowa state prison. Americans United for the Separation of Church and State v. Prison Fellowship Ministries, a trial in which Sullivan served as an expert witness, centered on the constitutionality of allowing religious organizations to operate programs in state-run facilities. Using the trial as a case study, Sullivan argues that separation of church and state is no longer possible. Religious authority has shifted from institutions to individuals, making it difficult to define religion, let alone disentangle it from the state. Prison Religion casts new light on church-state law, the debate over government-funded faith-based programs, and the predicament of prisoners who have precious little choice about what kind of rehabilitation they receive, if they are offered any at all.

Without question, our world is filled with misery and pain. We somehow know and feel that something is terribly wrong with it. We have an idea of the kind of world we believe we should have. But we seem to believe that the world we live in falls short of this ideal world. The fact that we experience snippets of happiness and, sometimes, pleasure makes us wonder why the world we live in cannot be filled with happiness through and through. Hence we feel that something is missing. The contention of this book is fairly straightforward, though perhaps not simple, and it is this: there is nothing good here on earth for which heaven does not have a better substitute of infinite proportions. Whether we desire greatness, beauty, holiness, healing, or answers to questions of ultimate concern, heaven will fulfill them completely. The aim is not only to help the believer to look forward to a glorious end of this life and a glorious beginning of a new one, but also to enable him or her to live a meaningful life here on earth in spite of the reality of pain. If this conclusion can help a suffering saint to bravely face his or her hour of trial, then this book will have accomplished its purpose.
