The worst possible allies for the Jewish state are the fundamentalist Christians who want Jews to die and convert so they can bring on the second coming of their Lord. Continue reading “Gary DeMar: Dispensationalism’s Future Jewish Holocaust Problem (2015)”
Reading modern-day weaponry into the passage is not a biblical approach to Bible interpretation. Continue reading “Gary DeMar: Should We be Concerned About the World if it’s All about to End? (2016)”
Dispensationalists have been taking a beating in recent years from debaters of the Preterist camp, and today they will no longer accept challenges to debate. Let us hope this is a sign that the sun is beginning to set on his dangerous doctrine. Continue reading “Kurt Simmons: The Road Back to Preterism – A Brief History of Eschatology and the Church (2006)”
As a scholar of some reputation, who has access to historical sources and knows how to use them, Dr. Hindson should have informed his readers of preterism’s orthodox history and the recent history of dispensationalism and the many critiques lodged against it. Continue reading “Gary DeMar: Hiding the Truth at Liberty: A Response to Ed Hindson’s “The New Last Days Scoffers” (2005)”
Why have some dispensationalists shifted their attack against non-dispensationalists from exegetical arguments to ad hominem attacks? There is one simple answer: They can no longer defend their system by an appeal to the Bible or to history.

There is no sense is dealing with Tommy’s critique of preterism since anyone reading this on (PreteristArchive.com) knows the arguments for and against the position. Continue reading “Gary DeMar: Tommy Ice and Dispensationalism Under the Microscope — Again (2004)”
I have documented-in the past-DeMar’s strange belief that second coming passages such as Matthew 24-25 and Revelation 19 were fulfilled in events surrounding the Roman conquest of Jerusalem two thousand years ago. Continue reading “Tommy Ice: Gary DeMar’s End Times Fiction (2004)”
Ever since the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, dispensationalists have been sorely tempted to announce, “Prophecy is being fulfilled. Jesus is coming back soon.” This is inconsistent with the academic version of the dispensational system of interpretation, because the official position says that no Old Testament prophecy has been, or can be, fulfilled in the Church Age, Continue reading “Gary North, Fundamentalism’s Bloody Homeland for Jews (2003)”
There is no reliable historical information on how Antipas was martyred (Rev. 2:13), who Mr. Scott claims died during the reign of Domitian around AD 92. He bases his argument on some fanciful history about an Antipas of Pergamum who is claimed to have been martyred when he was placed in a heated brazen bull-shaped altar in the temple of Artemis. I’ve checked quite a few sources and in almost every case commentators do not accept the story as fact.
We should not arbitrarily choose whether to interpret a scripture passage “literally” or figuratively. Whenever possible, we should first examine other Bible passages to see what a phrase or word means and then apply the meaning consistently. Continue reading “Gary DeMar: Is The Millennium 1,000 Literal Years? (2014 Video)”
Prophecy is about the future. Bible prophecy is about what God says is going to happen in the future. There are a lot of Bible prophecies that have already been fulfilled. This shows that God’s Word is true and can be trusted. Continue reading “Gary DeMar: A Beginner’s Guide to Prophecy – Free Booklet (2015)”
Of particular note for today is Clarence Larkin’s 1920 rendition of “Daniel and Revelation Compared” which includes a masterfully drafted version of the fourfold-metal image from Nebuchadnezzar’s (Neb) dream (Dan. 2), complete with a mind-numbing dispensational distortion to the picture forced by Larkin’s dispensationalism. Continue reading “Joel McDurmon: The Tale of the Long Toes (2012)”
They scoffed at the claims made by Jesus that the temple would be destroyed and Jesus Himself would be the one to make it happen before their generation passed away. Since more than 30 years had passed since Jesus made this prediction, and the temple was still standing with no indication that it would be destroyed in less than a decade, they began to mock the words of Jesus. Continue reading “DeMar and Chilton: 2 Peter 3 – The Passing Away of Heaven and Earth (2010)”
A cult-like enthusiasm fuels this unorthodox movement, which teaches that the total complex of end time events transpired in the first-century: the Second Advent, the resurrection, the rapture of the saints, and the great judgment.
