New on UK Apologetics For May 2018






* QUESTION: DID ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES OR THE JESUITS AND POPE FULFIL DANIEL 7:25?

(A very interesting and intriguing question indeed)


* ARTICLE: THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY AND 'THE MAN OF SIN'

(I have made a few changes to this older article just recently, including adding an inset article, 'God Shall Send Them 'Strong Delusion' - What Does it Mean'?)


* QUESTION: I AM ASTONISHED THAT YOU ARE TAKING THE BIBLE SERIOUSLY IN 2018; WHAT HOPE IS THERE FOR IGNORANT PEOPLE LIKE YOU?

(This question was sent to me in March)


* QUESTION: WHAT ABOUT THE 144,000?

(I am again asked about the '144,000,' the second time in just a few months)


* QUESTION: WHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES IT SAY WHERE SATAN GETS HIS POWER?; DOES HE STILL HAVE THAT POWER?


* QUESTION: SO WE HAVE YAWEH, JEHOVA, YEHOVAH, YESHUA, FATHER: DOES IT MATTER?


* QUESTION: YOU ARE ALL WRONG ABOUT HELL AND MANY OTHER THINGS!

(Almost certainly this particular attack came from a 'Jehovah's Witness,' or a person influenced by their teachings)


* QUESTION: WE KNOW THAT OUR LORD TEMPORARILY WENT TO HELL, BUT FOR HOW LONG, AND TO WHICH 'HELL'?

(Yes, an interesting question; just a few months ago another Christian Apologetics writer asked me how I handled this question but it had never come up - as far as I can recall - back then)


* QUESTION: SHOULD THE CHURCH SEEK 'TONGUES-SPEAKING' IN OUR DAY?

(And here we go into an area where - I know - not all will agree with me, but I have to stand by my understanding of Holy Scripture)


* QUESTION: WHAT HAPPENED TO 'THE LOST TEN TRIBES OF ISRAEL'?

(There has been widespread conjecture and speculation on this topic, as well as plain errors and mis-information coming from certain of the cults and sects)




INTERESTING ARTICLES ON OTHER WEBSITES


* CONSCIOUSNESS: WHY MATERIALISM FAILS

(Please take the time to read this excellent article)


IT'S TIME FOR SCIENCE TO MOVE ON FROM MATERIALISM

(Another article from the secular press to show how the older materialistic Darwinism is increasingly being challenged)




ANOTHER LOOK AT SOME OLDER ARTICLES:


* QUESTION: CAN YOU EXPLAIN 1 CORINTHIANS 6:13?

(A very interesting question which came up in 2012)


* QUESTION: WHERE ARE ALL THE HUMAN FOSSILS?

(Originally from 'Creation' Magazine)


* ARTICLE: THE INTER-TESTAMENTAL PERIOD - 1

(A few of the major events which effected the Holy Land between the Old and New Testaments)


* ARTICLE: JESUS - SHATTERING THE CHRIST-MYTH TEACHING

(Excellent. From J.P. Holding. Admittedly this is 'heavy' reading with much detail)

Some Comments on Recent (and Older) Articles...

I Have Left the Following For Another Month...


"Hi, This is not a question, but a THANK YOU I am sending. After reading what you wrote on this site, concerning Billy Graham, my heart is at peace. I had to go outside my country of the U.S.A. to find help for the accusations thrown at me in the wake of Billy Graham's death, because I stated that our family loved him. My Dad worked with him behind the Iron Curtain, when we were missionaries in the 60\'s/70\'s. I posted on Facebook my regard for Billy Graham and was attacked, due to the Schuller-Graham interview, still seen by video. I tried to word my defense, but not well. I began to doubt my own thoughts, but they are, what you also wrote on this site. I believe exactly the same as you regarding Schuller. And regarding Billy\'s statements. God used you to bring peace to my heart. ~ J.P, Columbus, Ohio, USA"


"...in the light of Billy Graham's death, can you revive the lovely compassionate article you wrote about him a few years ago?..."

(RESPONSE: Yes, it is in the articles list today).


"My dad and his dad worked for Imperial Tobacco in the US. In the winter and spring of 1954, my dad was working in various factories in the U.K. and Ireland.in may, my mum went across the pond to meet him for a vacation on the continent before returning to the US.
My mother was a devout Presbyterian and follower of Dr. Bell’s ministry in China. My dad went to church but it always seemed to be an obligatory routine. This was especially true later in life when he had become profoundly deaf after age 30. When my mum died on 1984, I asked him why he kept going to church when he could not understand one word. His response was electric! He said that he continued to be the "right thing to do." When pressed about what he meant, he said that he had been forced by my mum to go to an evening at the 1954 London crusade. He told me he didn’t wish to go but acquiesced to her insistence in spite of spending almost 10 hours in meetings and walking around at the Wills Plant in 51 Holburn Viaduct. Going to the hotel in the west end, changing for dinner, and then attending a religious crusade was the farthest desire imaginable. But his acquiesce led to a life changing experience.
He said that when his mind would wander because he could not hear, or because he was alone, his mind would return to that night and the message from the young evangelist. I was never able to determine exactly which night that was. But it would have been somewhere between May 6 and June 1. Whatever part of this message he heard stuck with him until he died in 2002. It had enabled him to attend church by himself and without hearing for over 35 of his last 50 years."

"...You set exactly the right tone in your two articles on Copernican theory. Wise not to come strongly down on either side; but you are obviously cynical of the theory that our Earth spins through space at great speed. I know one thing, I have yet to travel by any plane in which the pilot assumes a moving earth. All their flight calculations are based on the belief that our Earth does not move, only the plane and astral bodies move! This is undeniable."
