Bible Doctrines

"An 'Angel' Named Yahweh." Repeatedly in the Old Testament we have an angel appearing who claims to be Yahweh, God Himself. Would not this "Angel" be Christ?

"The Divine Christ in the Old Testament." Gives briefly the evidence for Christ's intimate involvement in the affairs of His people even in Old Testament times.

"Immortality: Conditional or Innate." Gives 265 verses from 158 chapters from 35 books of the Bible. These verses indicate that immortality is indeed conditional. (86K)

"What Is the Soul and Spirit?" Gives 157 verses from the Bible which use the Hebrew and Greek words for "soul" and "spirit" in ways that do not harmonize with the common concept of death. (57K)

"To Depart and to Be with Christ." An excellent, thorough, 19th-century analysis of Php. 1:23, showing that Paul expected to meet Christ at the resurrection, not at death. Also part of this tract is "The Return of the Spirit to God," an analysis of Eccl. 12:7; and "Shall Our Earth Burn Eternally?"

"Investigative Judgment." This was written in 1995 in answer to the question, "Where do you get that from the Bible?" Gives texts of Scripture to support 32 different points.

" 'Then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.' What does this verse really mean?" Can unconfessed sins defile the sanctuary? What exactly does it mean for the sanctuary to be defiled?

"The Righteousness of Christ in the Law." Written in 1902 by E. G. White, this is an excellent commentary on 2 Corinthians 3, an often misunderstood chapter in the writings of the apostle Paul.

"The Holy Name: Yahweh and Yehoshua." Examines from a biblical standpoint whether Yahweh and Yehoshua are the only acceptable names to use for God and Christ.

"Analysis of Common Quotations from the Church 'Fathers' Concerning the Lord's Day" Examines quotations found on a number of web sites, quotations all copied from the same tampered, fraudulent source. The immediate context of some of these quotations is absolutely shocking.

New! "The Word "Church" in the Old Testament" Demonstrates that the Greek word for "church" is repeatedly used in the Old Testament Septuagint to refer to Israel, while sometimes "synagogue" is used in reference to Gentiles. A must read for every dispensationalist.


Bible Prophecy

"An Examination of Anderson's Chronological Errors Regarding Daniel 9's First 69 Weeks." Dispensational eschatology, as portrayed on Left Behind, depends on an adequate explanation of the first 69 weeks. Anderson is often quoted, and yet his theories are contradicted by plain facts about calendars and history.

"Dr. Harold Hoehner's Refinements of Anderson's Theory: Are They Sound?" Acknowledges the four improvements over Anderson that Dr. Hoehner has provided. Examines the chronological difficulties still present in his calculations of Daniel 9's 70 weeks, and suggests an alternative interpretation unencumbered by such difficulties.

"Does Dispensationalism Allow to Be Fulfilled the Very Prophecies About Israel It says Must Be Fulfilled?" Dispensationalism says certain Old Testament prophecies about Israel must be fulfilled in the last days. Yet the typical dispensational timeline does not leave any room for some of those prophecies to take place.

"Karaite Reckoning vs. Rabbanite Reckoning: Was October 22 the Right Date, or Was It September 23?" Examines extant evidence not commonly known that shows that October 22 was indeed the correct date for Yom Kippur in the year 1844. Includes a former Rabbi's eyewitness account of what was happening in Palestine in the 1830's.

"The Seven Trumpets of Revelation: Were the Later Reformers Right?" Is the evangelical position of yesteryear correct about the seven trumpets being in part a symbol of military conquest of Rome and Byzantium? Contains a link to a chart of 53 evangelical expositors who wrote between 1522 and 1798, some of whom were quite distinguished.

"Who Are These Seven Kings?" An analysis of Revelation 17's seven kings. Addresses various interpretations, past and present, and endeavors to narrow the possibilities down to one.

"Remarkable Fulfillment of Prophecy, Relating to France and the "Two Witnesses;" Quotations from Eminent Expositors of Prophecy, with Remarks by Mr. Miller." A letter by William Miller, with extensive quotations from evangelical scholars, presents what used to be the typical interpretation of Revelation 11.

"The Meaning of 666" Attempts to narrow the search for the mystical name that adds up to 666 by using Revelation's allusions to a passage in Exodus.


Chronology

"Popular Dates Used in Archeology: An Analysis of Assumptions Based on the Septuagint." Demonstrates that the Septuagint does not allow for post-Flood civilizations to be in place 1000 years earlier than the Masoretic text. In actuality, it allows only for an extra 350 or 450 years. This makes many popular, ancient dates erroneous.

"An Examination of Anderson's Chronological Errors Regarding Daniel 9's First 69 Weeks." Dispensational eschatology, as portrayed on Left Behind, depends on an adequate explanation of the first 69 weeks. Anderson is often quoted, and yet his theories are contradicted by plain facts about calendars and history.

"Dr. Harold Hoehner's Refinements of Anderson's Theory: Are They Sound?" Acknowledges the four improvements over Anderson that Dr. Hoehner has provided. Examines the chronological difficulties still present in his calculations of Daniel 9's 70 weeks, and suggests an alternative interpretation unencumbered by such difficulties.

"When Were the Sabbatical Years?" Re-examines Ben Zion Wacholder's evidence for his sabbatical dates, and concludes that the standard position was correct after all. Using Josephus, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, ancient inscriptions and documents, the Talmud, and Maimonides, when the sabbatical years were can be determined. And this all has a bearing on Daniel 9's 70 weeks.


Current Events

"Making Moslems Mad: Is Left Behind to Blame?" Radical departures in Protestant theology have resulted in books and movies about the supposed future demolishing of one of Islam's holiest shrines in order to rebuild the Jewish temple. Has this contributed to the hatred of some Moslems for America, and thus our current crisis?

The Triple Crown: An Account of the Papal Conclaves from the Fifteenth Century to the Present Day. This is a book by Valérie Pirie about the behind-the-scenes proceedings of the papal elections. Also included are short summaries of each pope's reign.


Health

"Charcoal, Herbs, and Simple Remedies." Experiences of a 19th-century health reformer using charcoal, herbs, and simple remedies in the treatment of disease. The use of these things avoided the side effects of the drug preparations of that era.

"Hot or Cold? 'Practical Counsel on Home Treatments'." The benefits of heat over extreme cold in hydrotherapy treatments are enumerated by a nineteenth-century health reformer. A case is referred to involving an American form of malaria.

"The Use of Chicken Manure/Litter in Animal Feed" Information provided by Daryl Fleming of the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine. Shocking as it may sound, the FDA informs us that farmers have been feeding chicken litter to cows for 40 years, and that "it is safe, nutritionally valid, and environmentally sound." We beg to differ.


History

The Triple Crown: An Account of the Papal Conclaves from the Fifteenth Century to the Present Day. This is a book by Valérie Pirie about the behind-the-scenes proceedings of the papal elections. Also included are short summaries of each pope's reign.


Science

"Ezekiel's City: Calculating the Circumference of the Earth." Evidence for the divine inspiration of the Scriptures. By comparing Ezekiel's city with Revelation's New Jerusalem, provides a way to calculate the precise circumference of the earth from the Scriptures.


Apologetics

A Response to the Video: Seventh-day Adventism: The Spirit behind the Church  The revised and updated print edition of our critique of Jeremiah Films' video, broken up into quickly downloaded pages. Both the still-available old version, "A Critique of the Jeremiah Films Video: Seventh-day Adventism — The Spirit Behind the Church," and the print edition cover 239 different points where the video falls short.
