TruthSeekah Podcast: The End Times – What You Are Not Being Told

A great podcast interview with TruthSeekah about the End Times. We talked about how the prophecies of the Last Days were not the Last Days of the earth, but the Last Days of the Old Covenant. If this is true then the entire paradigm of Bible prophecy that most Christians are following must be changed.

Listen how you can begin to do so. Check out the podcast here.

 

2 Heretics Again: Part 2 of the Great End Times Discussion

Me and Rob Skiba again! The guy is smart, sharp, he’s got a good sense of humor, and he’s a very fair host.

It’s so hard, trying not to fall into the trap of saying that every new podcast interview is “the best one yet.”  That dilutes the phrase. It’s a dangerous slippery slope into click bait.

But I have to say this series of discussions truly are the best interviews I’ve had. We go deep into issues and because it’s a series, we cover a lot more ground than I have before.

This interview starts out on the poetry of Bible prophecy. Metaphors, hyperbole, symbols versus “literal.” What about double fulfillment? Are the Last Days in our future or were they in our past as the Last Days of the Old Covenant?

Listen here to the podcast online. You’ll be glad you did.

Part 1 is on the same page as Part 2 if you want to listen to it.

Part 3 is coming next week. We’ll talk about the book of Revelation specifically.

 

Blade Runner 2049: Boring Soulless Mediocre Atheist Christ Story

Decades after the original, a new blade runner is tasked to hunt down a replicant that was “miraculously” born. Such a birth would justify giving replicants “human dignity,” and thereby stop their slavery to humans.

The original cool movie concept of a hunter of A.I. robots becoming the hunted has turned into another sophomoric attempt to philosophize that bleeds contempt for the audience by delivering no real action and long boring 1980s camerawork that lasts a sleep-inducing 2 hours and 44 minutes.

I don’t even want to waste my time blogging on this, but if I do, then you don’t have to waste your time regretting watching it.

I had originally assumed Ridley Scott directed this, but he only exec produced it. So…

My God, when are these Hollywood “artistes” going to stop trying to subvert the Bible with atheist Christ stories and God hatred? I’m praying that Denis Villeneuve, the director, is doing this because he’s being bothered in his conscience as he faces his own mortality. But I fear a more cynical reality that he is just another filmmaker who thinks he’s being “deep” by adding religious themes he doesn’t even believe in to a story he’s trying to make profound.

What is the line between machine and humanity? Do our dreams constitute our reality?

It seems that this is the era where atheist propaganda movies have achieved the preachy mediocrity of Christian propaganda movies. Now, when they throw out “God’s Not Dead” and “Fireproof,” we can say, “Oh, yeah? What about Alien Covenant and Blade Runner 2049?” And Exodus: God’s and Kings? And Noah?

Give me the hearty paganism of Gladiator any day over this heartless soulless atheism. (It’s paganism is not ultimately satisfying either, but it connects more deeply with our universal hunger for transcendence in a way that BR 2048 cannot.)

Soullessness is Boring

First off, the very premise upon which the entire movie rests is the atheistic evolutionary fairy tale that “souls” or consciousness arises or grows out of material complexity. This is all the rage now in some brain science circles etc. They have no actual explanatory mechanism for this “miracle” of matter sprouting “soul,” they just believe it happens. It “self-organizes.” This is what’s called in science, “just so” stories, or “magical thinking.”

And they laugh at Christians?

Ironically, the movie still operates within a modernist paradigm of Greek dualism that argues that humans are “ghosts in machines.” The Gnostic version says it this way: “the body is a prisonhouse of the soul.” Be that as it may, it’s the same delusion of A.I. movies all over. There is some point at which machines and/or their programming become so complex that they sprout souls.

This is actually a reductionism that reduces spirit to properties of matter. They try to deny that and craft clever ways of “transcending” materiality, but they cannot do so. And we humans know this when we watch these stories. Which means that when such atheist premises are engaged in the course of “love stories” between robots and other such “dignifying” activities, the audience knows as they watch that it’s a contradiction. Even if they don’t know it intellectually, or they can’t put their finger on it, they can sense it as they watch. Robots and programs are not humans, and no amount of verisimilitude can change that. Verisimilitude is a means of deception. And I think the audience can sense that truth.

Now, here’s how the deception tries to mimic truth… Continue reading

2 Heretics & the Last Days: Revelation is Not What They Told You

This is a FASCINATING discussion. One of my most interesting.

I was on Rob Skiba’s podcast talking about the End Times and the failure of modern Bible Prophecy pundits over and over and over again.

With such a track record of absolute and total failures, maybe it’s not because individuals are wrong in specific interpretations. Maybe its the entire system that is wrong.

Consider something radically different. Consider preterism…

What happens when two heretics discuss opposing views on the End Times? Find out in this first of a multi-part series, which will compare Brian Godawa’s Preterist views versus Rob Skiba’s Futurist views concerning what the Bible calls the “Last Days.” In this broadcast, Brian lays out the foundation for why he no longer believes in the Futurist position, as described in his latest series of books.

The Controversy Over Israel and the End Times

Now Available in Paperback and Ebook

The more I study this issue, the more I see it as crucially important to understanding the Gospel. And the more I come to realize how many Christians misunderstand this issue in today’s climate of “End Times” conspiracy theories.

It’s not a big book, it’s just 106 pages. Packed with Scripture and the kind of fascinating theological insights you’ve come to expect from this theo-dramatic writer.

Israel: the Chosen People, the children of Abraham. They were God’s elect in the Old Testament. But why were they so special to God? And does that specialness carry over to the New Testament? But what about the Church of Jesus Christ? Are there 2 Peoples of God?

It’s all about Jesus, folks. The Old Testament is all about Jesus.

I examine how the promise of God to Abraham was fulfilled in the New Testament through the faithful Israelite, Jesus the Messiah, and how that changes everything.

Please Support these Most Courageous Storytellers in Hollywood

Here is an opportunity to do something active regarding changing our culture for the better.

Phelim McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney, are the most boldly courageous filmmakers I have met. I am working with Phelim on a project so this is very personal to me. This is not just an idea or a distant and cold cultural observation.

Take a look at their trail of storytelling righteousness…

They spoke truth to the power of Big Green by making the documentary Frack Nation. This doc uncovered the malicious lies of the anti-fracking movement and “documentary” Gasland. They raised their own funds through Kickstarter to make it. It’s now on Netflix and Amazon Video. They showed the truth about fracking, that quite literally has saved our nation.

Phelim and Ann made history by raising their own funds of a couple million dollars to make a feature film (and book) about America’s worst serial killer, Hermit Gosnell. The press and everybody ignored this monster because he was an abortionist who engaged in infanticide. You read that right. Infanticide, not merely abortion. I’ve seen the movie, called, Gosnell. It’s a good movie. And it’s a courtroom drama, not a politicized piece. It has no gruesome pictures. It’s about the humanity of those who uncovered his dark crimes. But no distributor in Hollywood will touch it, because, well, Infanticide is a woman’s right to the Left. So Phelim and Ann are raising their own funds to distribute.

The New York Times suppressed their book about Gosnell from their best-sellers list, because, well, infanticide is a woman’s right to the  NYT.

When Kickstarter found out about the Gosnell project, it banned them from their website, because, well, infanticide is a woman’s right to Kickstarter. So Phelim and Ann went to Indiegogo, a more tolerant and inclusive fundraising website for their next projects… Continue reading

Peeranormal Podcast: Bigfoot DNA Examined by Scientists

I was a cohost on the Peeranormal podcast about Bigfoot DNA.

Back in 2012 the world heard that Bigfoot DNA had been isolated and genetically tested under controlled laboratory conditions. Those involved claimed that the testing had proven the existence of Bigfoot (aka, Sasquatch), and that the creature was a hybrid between modern homo sapiens and an unknown primate species.In a short time, the story unraveled and the research was scrutinized by experts revealing a number of flaws. But this was not the only attempt at producing genetic evidence for Bigfoot. There were earlier and subsequent tests. Is there genuine evidence for Bigfoot DNA?

The Handmaid’s Tale: The Delusionary Hysterical Fear of Christian Theocracy

Hulu series about a dystopian world where infertility has become widespread, threatening the survival of the human race. A Christian theocracy has taken over and has enslaved the few fertile women as concubines for birthing children to the leaders—and to oppress women everywhere, because, well, that’s what Christianity is all about, don’t you know. Or something.

This won an Emmy for Drama Series. So I tried to watch it. I couldn’t get very far. It was an unending parade of Christophobic stereotypes, cliches and demonizations of Christianity. A litany of the fevered delusions and projections of left wing paranoia. But even worse: It was just bad storytelling.

It’s clear why this series is getting critical accolades. Not because it’s good. It’s terrible. But because it reflects the collective intolerance and bigotry of the Hollywood elite.

The storytelling here was more preachy, more juvenile in it’s exaggeration, more ridiculously melodramatic than any Christian movie I have ever seen. And if you know me, you know I do not like preachy Christian movies.

It was like watching a sincere yet laughable horror movie from the 1950s with every shot a “scary” melodramatic exaggeration of ugly lighting, ominous music, dour acting and extreme dialogue. And more ominously ominous music. Dr. Evil has nothing on this.

The Christian leaders in this story are of course fascists with Nazi-like traits, rituals and decorations. Their barren wives are begrudging enablers of the evil patriarchy who abuse the handmaidens out of their resentment, thus damning Christian women as traitors to their gender.

The heroine is a newly enslaved handmaiden who is taught that pollution caused the worldwide infertility, which is God’s punishment. In the first episode we see that the Christians execute Catholic priests, abortionists and gays. So, it is Evangelical Christianity who is the real villain here.

Or at least Atwood’s bizarre twisted misinterpretation of what Evangelical Christianity is. Continue reading

The Red Pill: Feminist Discovers Men Are Not Demons

Now available for free on Amazon Prime.

Cassie Jaye is a feminist filmmaker who takes a look at Men’s Rights Groups and their issues through a fair and objective lens. What she finds is shocking.

I don’t care for many documentaries because most of them are “docuganda,” that is, agenda-driven propaganda in the guise of impartial “journalism.” Heck, most of them don’t even bother to pretend being impartial anymore. And it’s no surprise most of them are left wing agitprop, because, well, conservatives still don’t believe in the power of culture and media, so they’re still cursing the darkness without lighting a candle.

But The Red Pill is different. The Red Pill is fascinating. It’s riveting.  It’s the anatomy of a conversion taking place right before your eyes. All right, I’m going to give a big fat spoiler, but in this case, I think it’s actually the selling point of the film… Continue reading
