With the buzz around the recent horror film Nefarious, which presents a more theologically accurate picture of demonic possession than pretty much anything else from Hollywood, we address the question: Can Christians use horror as an apologetic?
Joining us for our monthly Iron and Myth round table are award-winning screenwriter and best-selling author Brian Godawa (Godawa.com), Pastor Doug Van Dorn (DouglasVanDorn.com), author of Giants: Sons of the Gods, and Director of the Institute of Biblical Anthropology Dr. Judd Burton (BurtonBeyond.net), author of Interview With the Giant: Ethnohistorical Notes on the Nephilim.
I was on Parker’s Comparables, a podcast that engages differing interpretations of the Bible. Hosted by the wonderful hostess Parker J. Cole.
This one was on the book of Revelation. Are the prophecies of Revelation for our future or were they for the first century?
Then we focused on: Who is the Harlot that rides the Beast of Revelation?
Is she a symbol for modern America, as Doug Woodward believes?
Or is she a symbol for the first-century apostate Jewish priesthood as I argue for?
The discussion is mostly friendly until Doug breaks civility at one point and slanders me with a false ad hominem, an attack on the person instead of the idea or argument. But I called him out on it. I turned the tables on him, and then we got back to civility. Eschatology can get exciting! 🙂
I am telling you, this debate is an excellent example of why it is important to stick to Scripture rather than speculations when you want to understand prophecy.
I was on this podcast. It was a great interview. One of my best yet.
We started talking about my new novel, “Tyrant: Rise of the Beast”, the first release in my new series “Chronicles of the Apocalypse.”
Then we talk about the new book before diving deep into a broader discussion about biblical prophecy and how to properly understand it in the modern age. Whether or not you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, if you have an interest in prophecy or are curious to know what the ancient authors meant by the “end times”, this is a conversation you won’t want to miss!
