Who Is Our King?

As I sat down to write this, I knew I was running a risk. Donald Trump is a very polarizing person, and some people are dedicated to seeing him as either savior or tyrant. And though I am on record as having a negative view of him, I do not fall into either of those extremes. Therefore, neither side is likely to be totally happy with what I am about to say, and that could lead to anger. On top of that, the warning I am trying to give could also be turned back on me, if a time comes when I am guilty of hero worship or fear mongering.

What is the Rapture?

A little while ago, I was asked to discuss the concept of the Rapture in one of these articles. It is fairly difficult to do that, not because of how little there is to say but because of how much. My writing is already a bit long for the internet, but discussing the Rapture fully (if such a thing is possible) would take a book. I cannot do that at the moment. Nor can I ask you to read it off a webpage. Instead, I am going to go the opposite direction and attempt to hit the high notes. Oftentimes, I try to give at least some insight on or description of positions with which I disagree on a debatable issue. Today, suffice it to say there is a debate, and what I say here is simply my side of it.

What, Me, Worry?

A few weeks ago while I was preparing my article about the wise men of Matthew 1, I did some research into the Zoroastrian religion. It was nothing in-depth, merely enough for identification purposes, but I read something in passing that got me thinking. So this week, I want to do a little comparative religion.
