Why the Purpose Driven Cult Doesn’t Lead to Meaningful Lives

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO Somewhere in the past 40 years “Purpose” has become our god. I suppose Rick Warren revealed this god more than he invented it in his wildly successful book, The Purpose Driven Life. Somewhere, having Purpose (yes, I’m capitalizing it on purpose, since it has taken a god-like status) became a “must have” for western culture. Earlier this year, Facebook tycoon (and socialism advocate) Mark Zuckerberg spoke at the Harvard University commencement, saying, Today I want [...]

The Dispensation of Promise—The Uniqueness of the Jewish People

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 21) Thanks for stopping by for this week's Bible study! For several weeks, we have been considering God's covenant promises to Abram, given in Genesis 12:1-3. It was this new revelation that began the dispensation of promise. To refresh our memories, here once again is this vitally important section of Scripture: Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land [...]

Three Woes Declared

(Read Part 36) To recap what we saw last time, the Apostle John has already laid out the seven seal judgments and the first four trumpet judgments that will result in the deaths of more than one fourth of the world’s population, under devastating worldwide conditions. The thought that might come to mind at this point is, "How could it get any worse?" Yet, John now reveals that the past judgments pale in severity compared to the judgments he is ready to reveal. [...]

The Dispensation of Promise—Israel’s Right to the Land

By RANDY WHITE, D.Min. Founder and CEO (Read Part 20) Welcome to our Bible study! As we have learned in the previous four articles, God's covenant promises to Abram, given in Genesis 12:1-3, began the dispensation of promise. By now we should all know this very important Scripture passage by heart, but just in case you need help in keeping it before your mind, here it for us again: Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and [...]

Three Woes Described

(Read Part 35) Review—Introspective Challenge of the Judgment The six seal judgments (see Rev. 6) and the first four trumpet judgments (Rev. 8:1-12) will wreak havoc on the heavens and the earth in the future tribulation period. The Apostle John has yet to reveal the most horrific judgments that God will impose on those refusing to repent of their sin and turn in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ. In this new article and the next, we will examine the three woes pronounced [...]

America’s Hope

(Read Part 2) America's Heartbreak (cont.) A major fault of socialism is that it depends on two ugly traits of human nature to make it grow: envy and covetousness. The have nots must be stirred to demand that government act to give them their part of what is owned by the haves regardless of merit or work. Well, it is all rather sad, is it not? It really comes down to a question of how long we are going to be able [...]

America’s Heartbreak

(Read Part 1) America's Heartbreak The late Dr. Francis Schaeffer, one of the most able thinkers and writers among evangelicals, says in his book, Death in the City: “It is a horrible thing for a man like myself to look back and see my country and my culture go down the drain in my own lifetime.” He continued to say that 30 to 40 years ago our culture was built on the Christian consensus—and yet now we are in an absolute minority! [...]

The Fourth Trumpet Judgment

(Read Part 34) Introduction The old adage, “If I had a nickel for every time I heard someone say that, I would be a rich person,” certainly applies to the many times friends and family members have stated to me that the lack of sunlight for a long stretch of dark and gloomy weather makes them feel lethargic—and even depressed. God reveals in the fourth trumpet judgment that a major change will one day take place with the sun, moon and stars: [...]

America’s Heritage

“God has spared us in liberty and freedom to this hour, but . . .” As America enters a new century she has a decision to make. She can return to the Biblical principles her Founders supported, or move even further away from her Christian heritage. On that decision rests the future of our nation. The Bible declares, Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD. (Ps. 33:12) His continued blessing can be expected only when we as a people acknowledge His [...]

The Third Trumpet Judgment

(Read Part 33) One Third of Rivers and Water The Apostle John reveals that not only will God allow the destruction of one third of the seas, but also of the rivers and springs by causing them to become lethally bitter as Wormwood. In Scripture, wormwood represents Divine punishment associated with bitterness and sorrow (cf. Jer. 9:15; 23:15; Lam. 3:15). Revelation 8:10-11 states: Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell [...]
