Series: 2009 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 48 secs
In the coming tribulation period, the antichrist will rule the entire world from his headquarters located in the literal, rebuilt city of Babylon on the Euphrates River found in modern day Iraq. Not only have numerous Christians throughout church history embraced this view, but it has also been incorporated into the best selling Left Behind series. The question is whether such a view can be successfully defended from Scripture. It is the purpose of this article to demonstrate that it can. This article will survey various lines of biblical evidence that call for a futuristic, literal Babylon. These lines of evidence include Gen 10–11, Isa 13–14, Jer 50–51, Zech 5:5-11, and Rev 17–18. After this evidence has been presented, this article will then highlight the inadequacy of other approaches that view the prophecies regarding Babylon as something other than the literal city of Babylon. ...

Most people erroneously view evolution as merely a scientific or biological issue. However, in actuality, evolution is a worldview issue. Darwinian evolution impacts one’s worldview like few other concepts. In the late 1980’s, Dr. Henry Morris wrote a book entitled The Long War Against God in which he showed that evolution is the seed bed or foundation of the major anti-God movements and philosophy’s of our day. Here, Morris revealed evolutionary assumptions behind Communism, Nazism, Racism, Atheism, New Age, and Secular Humanism. Morris’ insights help explain why evolution is so protected in our society in spite of its scientific inadequacies. The theory’s protectors understand that if evolution collapses, then so do all of these other “isms” that are built upon evolution. ...

Passage: Romans 7
Series: 2011 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 20 mins 46 secs
This paper will argue that one’s understanding of practical sanctification is profoundly impacted by how one views the “I” in Romans 7:7-25. Specifically, the paper will argue that the “I” in Romans 7 is Paul, and in verses 14-25 Paul is reflecting upon his post conversion experience. In addition, the paper will maintain that a post conversion view of Romans 7:14-25 leads to a dual nature view of the believer. This view teaches that although the believer has a new nature that he received at conversion, his Adamic nature still exists within him and continues to tempt him to return to his former sinful lifestyle throughout the course of this life. Finally, the paper will contend that viewing believers through the lenses of the dual nature view shapes one’s understanding of practical sanctification in several important ways. ...

Duration: 1 hr 10 mins 10 secs
At the time of this writing, a high school principal and athletic director have been exonerated from criminal contempt charges for offering a public prayer over a meal at an athletic banquet. Yet, how could such a seemingly harmless activity ever rise to the level of a potential crime in the United States of America? The answer: a distorted reading of the Constitution that supposedly erects a high and impregnable wall between church and state. It is because of this lie, which was first introduced into the fabric of our culture through errant Supreme Court decisions of the early 1960s, that city councils are sued for placing manger scenes on the steps of city hall, public schools are prohibited from teaching scientific creationism alongside evolution, copies of the Ten Commandments are stricken from government walls, teacher-led prayer and Bible reading is prohibited in public schools, and Christianity has generally been purged from public life.

Series: 2013 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 6 mins 16 secs

These sessions involve a a critique of a movement that you may not know anything about if you are over the age of 40. This movement that I am speaking of is the emergent church.

In 2 Timothy 4:3-4, Paul warned that the last days of the church would be characterized by apostasy. What I would like to share with you in these sessions is really the next wave of apostasy which is coming and in fact is already here. It is called the emergent church. You may not be familiar with it at all because it is targeted towards the young. All you have to do to validate what I am saying is to go to Google and type in the words "emerging church" or "emergent church," and you will find a plethora of emergent websites, all targeting the young.

Passage: Matthew 6:9-13
Series: 2014 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 21 mins 44 secs

The contemporary evangelical world is engulfed in the idea that the church is presently experiencing the messianic kingdom. The idea of the "kingdom" can be bewildering, especially considering how this term is loosely bandied about by today's evangelicals. Many ministries convey the notion that the kingdom is strictly a spiritual and present reality by indicating that they are "expanding the kingdom" through their evangelistic and missionary endeavors. Even Christian political activists sometimes argue that they are "bringing in the kingdom."

Such "kingdom now" theology factors prominently in the writings of various Emergent Church writers. Doug Pagitt proclaims, “And let me tell you ‘Kingdom of God’ language is really big in the emerging church.”

Passage: 2 Corinthians 13:5
Series: 2015 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 16 mins 26 secs
Second Corinthians 13:5, one of the most hotly contested verses in the entire Bible says, "Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!" Most understand this verse as exhorting the idea of perpetual self introspective spiritual analysis in order to ascertain if one is truly a Christian. This point of view emanates from interpreters who adhere to Reformed Theology, Lordship Salvation, or Hyper Calvinism. These systems place a high premium on perseverance in good works as the authenticating sign of being a genuine believer. In other words, they teach that all true believers will inevitably persevere in good works. Thus, ever increasing good works demonstrate the genuineness or authenticity of an individual's spiritual status as a true child of God. If the good works are not plentiful in someone's life, then perhaps they are not a true child of God. Perhaps they are a mere professor of Christ rather than an actual possessor of Him. Thus, in this system, 2 Corinthians 13:5 means that we should engage in chronic spiritual inventory in order to ascertain the abundance of a changed life and good works. If they are not present, then perhaps we were never saved in the first place.
