It Has Come To This…

How much do bees cost human society?  It is an important question.  Bees provide a profound service to humans – they pollinate flowers and therefore are directly responsible for a significant amount of food production around the world.  While performing this service, they also produce honey, a very significant benefit to humans.  Wild bees cost […]

The Wall Between Church And State In America Is Scheduled For Demolition

Some leaders build walls.  Some leaders knock down walls.  And sometimes a leader does both at the same time.  The National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC today was a memorable event.  It was, for instance, the first time a president used the event to mock his enemies and to curse.  The breakfast is usually a […]

A Little Insight….

There is SO MUCH going on in the world right now that it is extremely difficult to keep track.  It is even harder to synthesize everything and then compare it to Bible prophecy.  Here is an article that helped me do both.  It is not a definitive article, but it does provide some clues. –Scott […]

Wars, Rumors of Wars, and Fish

If you have not paid attention to the Chinese presence in the South China Sea, here is a very brief explanation:  After China recovered form the communist era and become wealthy by being the world’s manufacturer, leaders decided to rebuild their military to become a regional or hemispheric dominant power.  They also decided to grab […]

Perhaps you have seen the video series I filmed with ARtv.  If not, take a look at the first of the six short videos here.  I had an extremely positive experience working with ARtv, which stands for Adventist Review TV, and perhaps you will agree that the video quality is very, very good.  That initial […]

The Selfishness Paradigm – Video Series

I think it was back in September that I invited readers to take a look at the video series that I recorded for ARtv (Adventist Review TV).  I had expected the series would be released shortly after that post.  I was quite wrong.  The series of six video was not released until today.  So I […]

Fire And Ice

What interesting times we live in.  What prophetic times we live in. I don’t want to give the impression that this blog is all about watching the crashing Arctic ice extent and the effect it has on accelerating the decline of other earth systems.  Its not.  And yet, I find that I am again writing […]

The Earth Is Dying

Since Jesus walked this earth and conducted His ministry, those who have followed Him and taken His name – Christians – have had His words to guide them in regard to the events that will happen before He returns.  Probably the most significant signs were outlined in detail by Jesus in Matthew 24.  So, we’ve […]
