Dr. Owen Strachan, assistant professor of Christian Theology and Church History at Boyce College in Louisville, Ky., told those gathered in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday that this "reworking" distorts historic Christianity.

World Bible Society President Dr. F. Kenton Beshore has said that based on a lifetime of study, he believes that the "Rapture" is likely to occur before the year 2021, while the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will happen between 2018 and 2028.
"There are 144,000 Jews during the Tribulation who are going to turn to the Lord," 86-year-old Beshore said in a statement. "Now, we are all going to be gone (following the Rapture).

Why is homosexuality wrong?
With every sin there are multiple levels of why it's offensive to God and to be avoided. The simplest is clearly to say the Bible says it is. And we should start there; and if we can go deeper, that's good. more >>
