Got Milk?

Got Milk? By Wendy Wippel If I said, I’m going to study the Bible ’till the cows come home’, would you look for a herd of longhorns? No! It’s an idiom, a phrase that says one thing but is understood to mean something else. The same thing could be said about ”Bible Study”. And that […]

Tubal-Cain, Right on Time

by admin

Tubal-Cain, Right on Time By Wendy Wippel The funny thing about the young-earth/old-earth argument is that no matter how many total years are postulated for creation (typically about 7000 for by young earth proponents versus nearly 14 billion years for old earth adherents) the Biblical record of humankind still matches up with the archaeological record. […]

A Liar From the Beginning

by admin

A Liar From the Beginning By Wendy Wippel Mythology represents truth; distorted over millennia until it’s fuzzy. The truth obscured, however, becomes evident when multiple mythologies of disparate cultures reveal a peculiar harmony in the basic details. Details that routinely echo the Biblical record, affirming that earth history, shared by its first inhabitants is accurately […]

A Divine Déjà vu

Isaiah in the High Places

by admin

Isaiah in the High Places By Wendy Wippel The age of enlightenment was “a cultural movement of 17th and 18th century intellectuals who emphasized reason and individualism rather than tradition.” (Oxford Dictionary). German pastor Friedrich Schleiermacher (a.k.a. the “father of modern hermeneutics”) was one of them. Not good. Hermeneutics is Bible interpretation. And it’s his […]

A Heart of Wisdom

by admin

A Heart of Wisdom By Wendy Wippel Luke predicted a time when Christians would be fair game for ridicule, persecution, and  even death. Today, anybody with eyes and ears and a news feed recognizes an increasing distaste for those who bear His name. You have to wonder, will faith endure till His return? New data […]
