True God, True Gospel

What kind of God do we present and what kind of gospel do we preach to a lost world ? Most Christians today answer in terms of God's love, yet there are surprisingly few references to this in the Bible By contrast, Scripture concentrates on divine goodness and righteousness. One day, God will put right everything that has gone wrong in His good world, punishing and banishing evil and making a brand new earth and heaven But can we be a part of this? The good news is that, through the Cross and Re...

The Wagon Train – an Allegory

Edgar Parkyns Foreward By Aaron Ireland Many years have passed since I first heard this allegory. I don't know if I would classify myself as a "historicist", per se, but this made so much sense to me at the time.

Arthur Katz Some reflections on the controversial Tent of Shem message and Israel's final destiny.  A transcription of a spoken message by the same title.
