THE TOPIC IS THE BIBLE’S HISTORICAL ACCURACY: WHETHER ITS OLDEST STORIES ARE TRUE HISTORY.
“History would be a wonderful thing, if only it were true”
Why We Need to Reboot the Bible
When it comes to the question of origins, Christians believe that we have the inside track in this quest. And we do. We know a great deal about the past. The Christian faith is drawn from the renowned actions of the Bible’s heroes and saints, our Lord Jesus chief among them. Unfortunately, we have been fooled into believing a great deal of hogwash about earlier … Read More
IS THE KING JAMES BIBLE THE ONLY BIBLE THAT PRESENTS GOD’S WORD?
For some, the mandatory usage of The King James Bible is a hedge against secularism and apostasy. In our world today, many conservative churches continue to argue vehemently that the KJV is the only trustworthy source, for it is the only Bible deemed to have the “imprimatur” of the Lord. 
They feel God not only supernaturally inspired the original autographs of the biblical writers, but they also believe He supernaturally inspired its preservation by keeping all errors out of the King James Bible. As one advocate told … Read More
My new book, REBOOTING THE BIBLE, was a quest of research spurred by the work of a genius Aussie polymath, Barry Setterfield. This new 30-minute video by Setterfield provides a graphic presentation supporting several of my key tenets. It’s a powerful piece.

WHY ARE SOME CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS OPEN-MINDED WHILE OTHERS AREN’T?
How easily are you threatened by another person of faith in Christ who believes something different than you do? For instance, “How old is the earth?”
The two terms, evangelical and fundamentalist, mean different things to different people. There is considerable history going back 200-400 years in the reformation or Protestant movement. What I’ve learned in my experience is that I find it easy to get along more with evangelicals than with fundamentalists. However, there remain many doctrines I still believe that place me in the fundamentalist camp. But not … Read More
WHAT IF THE WORLD WERE 7,500 YEARS OLD INSTEAD OF 6,000 YEARS OLD?
Is a Young Earth view dependent upon the Bible Chronology of Bishop Ussher and the King James Bible? Could it be based, instead, on the Septuagint’s Chronology which says Genesis 1 took place 7,500 years ago? What difference would it make?
One of the intriguing linkages between Bible Chronology and our worldview is that the age of the earth is typically tied to the date when Adam and Eve were created. If we are committed to a biblical worldview, we often assume that the Bible Chronology of … Read More
