On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/20/20), Hank invites listeners to imagine for a moment an empire that is invincible in power and majesty. Ruler over the rest of the nations of the world, but not just for a few hundred years, but for the better part of a millennium. For six hundred years the city of Rome towered above the nations. The invincibility of this empire was so certain that she actually bore a moniker—eternal. And then something unthinkable happened; Alaric and his Arian hordes breached the walls and sacked the immortal city. Pagan Romans looked on in utter disbelief as statues of ancient deities were pulled down. And then Christians began to wonder if indeed the end of the world was now at hand. When the Barbarians destroyed the Roman Empire in the West, it was the Christian Church that put together a new order called Europe. It was the Church that took the lead in rule by law, the pursuit of knowledge, and the expression of culture. And that is precisely what needs to happen in the modern epoch. For more information, please see Politics for Christians: Statecraft as Soulcraft https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2010wa/Hank also answers the following questions:Why does the doctrine of “once saved, always saved” get a bad rap?How was the Bible we have today assembled?Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/19/20), Hank discusses the shocking beheading of a teacher in France this past weekend. Samuel Paty was giving his middle-school class a lesson about free speech as required by the French Ministry of Education’s national curriculum. The teaching—according to authorities, who interviewed him about the lesson before his death—displayed cartoons of Muhammad from Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine targeted in a bloody terrorist attack in 2015. French President Emmanuel Macron said that this attack bore all the hallmarks of an “Islamic terrorist attack” and the teacher had been murdered because he “taught freedom of expression.” Some have forgotten, others blithely unaware of the reality that Islam is the only significant religious system in the history of the human race with a socio-political structure of laws that mandate violence against the infidel. That this graphic global reality makes Islam a religious ideology espousing terrorism as a permanent policy rather than a temporary expedient. While certainly there are many, many peaceful and tolerant Muslims, that hardly means that Islam is a peaceful and tolerant religion. From the fall of Jerusalem to the present, the world has known jihad. Muhammad’s trail of terror is the legacy of Islam.

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/16/20), Hank talks about what he saw last night during a town hall meeting with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. During the town hall meeting, Biden overtly stated that he had absolutely no compunction about a young child transitioning from one gender to another. It is simply unconscionable that an 8-year-old child should be burdened with the power to decide to become transgender in the face of well-established science showing that the vast majority of children suffering from gender dysphoria quite naturally grow out of that confusion. Moreover, the damage done to a young body during such a transition attempt is irreversible. Government leaders, in concert with media icons, now create, manipulate, and disseminate ideological constructs that are driving the whole of civilization in a very dangerous direction. We may rightly thank God that we as yet live within the confines of a liberal democracy that affords us the power to hold governmental personalities accountable. A liberal democracy that allows her citizens to participate by voting.

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank answers the following questions:My wife recently had a vivid dream that involved seeing Jesus. How much stock should we put into having vivid dreams?Was the serpent that spoke to Eve in Genesis an actual serpent?I once saw a fire levitating in my RV and I thought about God in the burning bush. Is this legitimate?What is your take on William Branham and his ministry?What is the sin leading to death in 1 John 5:16-17?Can one receive Jesus as Savior without the intent to make Him the Lord of your life?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/15/20), Hank brings up an article he read this week, titled “Harris’ Ties to Leading Anti-Israel Group Draws Scrutiny.” This reminded Hank of Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s address to the Million Muslim Votes Summit, an event hosted by Emgage, an organization founded and led by the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, including Emgage’s current Co-Chairperson Khurrum Wahid, a former legal advisor to the Hamas-linked radical Muslim organization Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). During his address, Biden lauds Islam as “one of the great confessional faiths” and “wish[es] we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.” As noted in the article, Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris seems enamored with Islam as well. In fact, she has gone out of her way to laud Islam, most notably CAIR, writing in a personal letter to the organization, “Please accept my gratitude and admiration for your tireless work to promote peace, justice, and mutual understanding.” For Harris to say that CAIR promotes “peace, justice, and mutual understanding” is what is referred to in Islam as taqiyya—religious dissimulation. Although CAIR is notorious for its practice of taqiyya, many U.S. politicians like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Talib, have no problem aligning with a group that supports provocative tactics and the terrorism that flow from such tactics. If there is a glimmer of optimism in all of this, it is the hopeful possibility that there may be millions of devout Muslims who could not so much as imagine trodding the path of Taqiyya. In concert with multitudes of non-Muslims, devotees likely regard the religious dissimilation tactics of Biden, Harris, and CAIR to be cringeworthy at best.

What are your thoughts on this?

Columbus Day of Rage

Columbus Day of Rage

2020-10-1529:15

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/13/20), Hank discusses Columbus Day, a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492. Yesterday, Columbus Day was the scene of carnage as demonstrators toppled statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt in Portland’s South Park Block. Moreover, the moniker “Stolen Land” was ominously spray-painted across its concrete base. Protest organizers dubbed the event “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage.” What could possibly motivate American citizens—supposed exemplars of social justice—to behave with such wanton recklessness in a supposed era of “wokeness” and progressive values? In trying to come to grips with this question, Hank was cowed by page after page of Google search results with exclamations that Columbus was a nefarious character—a ruthless money-grubbing, genocidal maniac, who severed hands, raped women, and enslaved gentle people to satisfy white Europeans’ lust for gold. One starts to wonder “how can I trust history?” Mary Grabar, author of the book, Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation Against America asked this very question. A good deal of what you read on the internet is based on Zinn’s historical revisionism. It constitutes a steady diet of poison seeping into the hearts and minds of impressionable children. Grabar exposes the fake history lessons that are systematically turning a new generation of kids against American exceptionalism.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/12/20), Hank discusses the topic of critical race theory, which has been front and center in the news lately, including during the presidential debate in late September. While debate moderator Chris Wallace contended that critical race theory is little more than sensitivity training, reality, says Hank, points in precisely the opposite direction. Critical race theory is rooted in atheistic Marxism. Karl Marx described history as a series of struggles between oppressors and oppressed. Between the dominant and the disadvantaged. As such, critical race theory is foundational to intersectionality, white privilege, white fragility, and the like. Moreover, says Hank, the grand metanarrative of critical race theory embraces an evolutionary worldview that is inherently racist in and of itself. It is not hard to grasp why Critical Race Theorists are loath to connect the dots for devotees or why those like Chris Wallace describe this horrifying worldview as sensitivity training.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank addresses a question he received on Facebook from John who asks, “In 2 Kings chapter 2, why would God honor Elisha’s prayer to bring down a curse on a group of kids to be mauled by bears? Isn’t the sixth commandment ‘you shall not kill’?” In response, Hank begins by noting that this is not a group of innocent young children, but rather dangerous, morally culpable, teenage gang members. They knew what they were doing in mocking God’s oracle to the nations. They intentionally went after Elisha to mock him and vicariously blaspheme God, a sin punishable by death. In response to John’s reference to the sixth commandment, Hank points out that the Bible does not prohibit killing per se, but unjust killing. What the sixth commandment forbids is murder—unjustified homicide. But more to the point, God alone has the authority to terminate life. Hank also answers the following questions:Are there two gospels in the Scripture? What are the differences between the gospel of the kingdom and the gospel of grace?It seems to me that most mainstream Christians believe that it would be an absolute disaster if the Republican party doesn’t win this election. What would you say?If the Bible is true, shouldn’t we be more interested in overthrowing God rather than worshiping Him since He is incapable of handing out proportional justice?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/09/20), Hank answers the following questions:I attend a senior citizens center that stopped allowing public prayers over meals. What should I do in this situation?Are the three days and three nights Jesus mentions in Matthew 12:40 referring to Easter?My family attends a United Pentecostal Church; what are your thoughts on this denomination?I once saw a fire levitating in my RV and I thought about God in the burning bush. Is this legitimate?What is your take on William Branham and his ministry?What is the sin leading to death in 1 John 5:16-17?Can one receive Jesus as Savior without the intent to make Him the Lord of your life?

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/05/20), Hank answers the following questions:My wife recently had a vivid dream that involved seeing Jesus. How much stock should we put into having vivid dreams?Was the serpent that spoke to Eve in Genesis an actual serpent?I believe God is faithful, but I have suffered a lot. How can someone like me who is standing alone be said to be full of joy and standing in the Lord?Exodus 7:14-25 speaks of all the water being turned to blood. In verse 24 it says the Egyptians dug for water along the Nile. If all the water was turned to blood, how could they do this?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/02/20), Hank recalls the 2017 confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. During those hearings, Senator Dianne Feinstein said something about Barrett that has stuck with Hank ever since: “the dogma lives loudly within you.” But in fact, the dogma lives loudly within Senator Feinstein as well. Indeed, dogma lives loudly within the hearts of every citizen. Hank also answers the following question: In Acts 3:21, is it saying that when Christ returns all things will be restored, not that all things will be restored before Christ returns?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, we present an episode of the Hank Unplugged podcast. Hank’s guest is Dr. Clay Jones, author of Immortal: How the Fear of Death Drives Us and What We Can Do About It. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2009wa/Hank and Dr. Jones discuss different ways that people avoid the fear of death, if the average person is afraid of death, why Jones wasn’t afraid to die when he received a terminal cancer diagnosis, what would happen if we found a cure to cancer, and what happens when you die.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/01/20), Hank highlights the new featured resource of the month, Politics for Christians: Statecraft as Soulcraft by Francis Beckwith. https://www.equip.org/product/cri-resource-cri2010wa/ In this book, Beckwith argues that our public policies become the social and legal fabric of our country—shaping the quality of our national character. If statecraft is indeed soulcraft, Christians can’t remain silent at the ballot box. The soul of our country is at stake. Hank also answers the following questions: I heard you say that when Christ comes again a second time He will come to get his saints, go over the River Jordan, and go into Jerusalem. Is this literal? Do we have any signs to watch for before Christ comes?In 1 Corinthians 7:14, it says that unbelieving spouses are saved through the faith of their believing spouse, but how could that be true if faith in Christ is an individual decision?Are women saved through bearing children as stated in 1 Timothy 2:15?I was taught that one received the Holy Spirit only by speaking in tongues. Is that true?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/30/20), Hank addresses a topic that is brought up over and over again, and that is the Nephilim spoken of by Moses in Genesis 6:4. Invariably, people assume that the Nephilim are the offspring of demonic beings who cohabitated with women, and as such, they are hybrids—not fully human. In fact, a recent caller to the broadcast went as far as to say that he knew that the Nephilim are part human and part demon because as women and demons cohabited prior to the Flood, so too they are doing so in the present. Believing that questions have to be answered in terms of what the Bible says, Hank examines this passage carefully to clear up the confusion.
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/29/20), Hank addresses a question he received on Facebook from John who asks, “In 2 Kings chapter 2, why would God honor Elisha’s prayer to bring down a curse on a group of kids to be mauled by bears? Isn’t the sixth commandment ‘you shall not kill’?” In response, Hank begins by noting that this is not a group of innocent young children, but rather dangerous, morally culpable, teenage gang members. They knew what they were doing in mocking God’s oracle to the nations. They intentionally went after Elisha to mock him and vicariously blaspheme God, a sin punishable by death. In response to John’s reference to the sixth commandment, Hank points out that the Bible does not prohibit killing per se, but unjust killing. What the sixth commandment forbids is murder—unjustified homicide. But more to the point, God alone has the authority to terminate life. Hank also answers the following questions: What does “the end is near” and "coming soon" mean in Revelation?Has God made us an offer that we can't refuse?
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/28/20), Hank brings up an event that was hosted by a group of Christian leaders—Jonathan Cahn among them—on the National Mall in Washington D.C. this weekend; the event was simply dubbed, “The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance.” The event had much to commend it; images of people prostrated before God in prayer confessing their sins and the sins of our nation and frequent calls to repent are no doubt needed in our era of unfettered hedonism. What is also needed is discernment—particularly discernment on the part of Christian leaders! A significant number of them now hail Cahn’s Bible Codes as important evidence for the inspiration of Scripture. They claim that such events as 9/11 are encoded in the biblical text. In truth, what should be self-evident is that Cahn’s arguments are little more than a fringe variety of Jewish mysticism repackaged for Christian consumption.Hank also answers the following questions:Are there two gospels in the Scripture? What are the differences between the gospel of the kingdom and the gospel of grace?It seems to me that most mainstream Christians believe that it would be an absolute disaster if the Republican party doesn’t win this election. What would you say?If the Bible is true, shouldn’t we be more interested in overthrowing God rather than worshiping Him since He is incapable of handing out proportional justice?

why do we need to count on deceased saints to pray 4 us when we have the earthy body of Christ here to pray?

Just an Opinion...

Who cares? One of the best arguments against religion is seeing how many people are worried about dogma and doctrines from a time when people believed that the universe revolved around earth. They didn't know about germs, scientific knowledge or even what causes lightening. And yet millions of people take advice and seek wisdom from iron and bronze age cultures. Unbelievable!
