"He is Risen!"                          

When Was the New Testament Written?

In 1997 the Barna Research group reported  almost two of every five adults (38 percent) believe that the entire Bible was written several decades after Jesus’ death.  The Books of the New Testament were all completed between 49 A.D. and 92 A.D. At the following link you will find hundreds of scholars listing the dates they believe the Books of the New Testament were completed. It should be obvious to everyone many eyewitnesses were alive, when these books were penned. The entire Old Testament, of course, was written hundreds of years before His birth.

"The Devil, whose business it is to pervert the truth, mimics the exact circumstances of the Divine Sacraments in the Mysteries of Mithras. He himself baptizes some, that is to say, his believers and followers; he promises forgiveness of sins from the Sacred Fount and thereby initiates them into the religion of Mithras; … he brings in the symbol of the Resurrection, and wins the crown with the sword."

—Tertullian (early third century)

America, A Christian Nation?

At the Constitutional Convention of 1787, James Madison proposed the plan to divide the central government into three branches. He discovered this model of government from the Perfect Governor, as he read Isaiah 33:22; “For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; He will save us.” [Baron Charles Montesquieu]    , wrote in 1748; “Nor is there liberty if the power of judging is not separated from legislative power and from executive power. If it [the power of judging] were joined to legislative power, the power over life and liberty of the citizens would be arbitrary, for the judge would be the legislature if it were joined to the executive power, the judge could have the force of an oppressor. All would be lost if the same … body of principal men … exercised these three powers."

Creationism, Intelligent Design, Evolution & Darwinism

"In the beginning were the particles
and the impersonal laws of physics.
And the particles somehow became complex living stuff;
And the stuff imagined God;
But then discovered evolution."
Phillip Johnson

Pro-Life / Pro-Choice Issues

I have counseled many women who have undergone an abortion, and they carry emotional guilt from the sin as their personal cross for the rest of their lives. Time after time I have told them by faith in Christ they are forgiven, and yet their response from the depths of their souls is almost always, "but, I murdered my baby." If a pastor mentions abortion in a sermon you will see several of these women rush to the doors. It was not a fairy tale, when Christ was screaming on the cross, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." They need to be assured beyond all doubt by faith in Christ they are forgiven. God Sent His dear Son to suffer on an old rugged cross so they can know the cleansing power of Christ's blood. It was Christ's agony that counts with the Lord, not their agony. God cannot lie, they are forgiven! Gary Butner, Th.D.
