Robert Schuller – The Humpty Dumpty of Evangelicalism

(March 2008 – Volume 14, Issue 3)  You might recall that, when Alice was conversing with Humpty Dumpty, she rebuked him for misusing words.

Postmodernism – Part 5

(February 2003 – Volume 9, Issue 2)  “Confronting Postmodernists” In previous papers I have discussed postmodernity’s encroachment on Western society and on the church, and identified the dangers and impact of this worldview. What do we do now? I believe we must be willing to go against the grain of a condoning society and display some […]

Postmodernism – Part 4

(January 2003 – Volume 9, Issue 1)  “Postmodernity and the Church” At certain points in history the church has served as a rebuke to the secular mindset of society. At such times Christians have challenged and exposed the popular fads that ruled the day, revealing those fads for what they were, shallow and empty, mere “broken […]

Postmodernism – Part 3

(December 2002 – Volume 8, Issue 9)  “Postmodernity and Society” Having raced far too briefly through an overview of postmodernism, we will now turn our attention to an equally brief account of this worldview’s impact on society.

Postmodernism – Part 2

(November 2002 – Volume 8, Issue 8)  “Whatever Happened to Truth?” The main character in Jean-Paul Sartre’s famous novel, Nausea, examines life carefully and comes to these gloomy conclusions; “I was just thinking, that here we sit, all of us, eating and drinking to preserve our precious existence and really there is nothing, nothing, absolutely no […]

Postmodernism – Part 1

(September/October 2002 – Volume 8, Issue 7)  A Historical Overview A great enemy has died – but few heard about the funeral. As a matter of fact many deny that she is dead at all.

Islam – Part 2

(February 2002 – Volume 8, Issue 2)  The Modern Mindset of the Islamic People Time magazine tries to calm our nerves with these words, “If the evil carnage we witnessed on September 11 were typical of the faith, and Islam truly inspired and justified such violence, its growth and the increasing presence of Muslims in both […]

Islam – Part 1

(January 2002 – Volume 8, Issue 1)  Before September 11th, most of us had little understanding of, and/or interest in the Islamic religion, but all of that has changed. What kind of people, we now want to know, purposely destroy so many innocent lives in the name of their God? Evil and wicked people we understand, […]

Examination of Life After Death Experiences

(July 1995 – Volume 1, Issue 9) Woody Allen expressed the sentiments of many when he stated, “Who cares about achieving immortality through achievements? I’m interested in achieving immortality through not dying.” Mankind has always feared death (Heb 2:15), and rightly so. Death is one of the great motivators towards the consideration of our need for […]

Dominion Theology

(January 1996 – Volume 2, Issue 3) There is a movement about that is casting a long shadow for its size.
