    WHAT IS THE ESCHATON? The term ESCHATON refers to the so-called “last days” or “end times.” It is the same root word as ESCHATOLOGY, the study of the biblical “last things.” There is great confusion over the biblical “end times.” After studying this for many years, I am persuaded that the culmination of NONE of the mentions of the "last days" or "end times" in the Bible can be placed outside of the first century. While this is shocking at first to some Christians, it is worth taking the time to study this. There are 15 primary mentions of the...

    New York's top cop has said the only reason a police officer told a Times Square desnuda to cover up her two-year-old daughter was because it was cold rather than any law she may have been breaking. NYPD Chief Bill Bratton told reporters that he was frustrated with the current situation at the Crossroads of the World that allows women to parade around topless in exchange for tips. “That’s the craziness of this issue of ‘artistic freedom’ when it goes to the extent of [the mother] — if in fact that was the mother — exploiting that young child for...

Roman, one of a group of bare-breasted women who have caused controversy in recent weeks, says she 'doesn't feel protected' by police officers stationed in the square.

    24358 The Los Angeles Times apparently doesn’t think “women who were born during botched abortions in the 1970s” are abortion “survivors,” as a Wednesday article about two such women featured a title that put the term in scare quotes: “Abortion ‘survivors’ criticize Planned Parenthood on Capitol Hill.” Marcus E. Howard led the item by hyping that “House Republicans on Wednesday fueled an already emotional and partisan debate by hearing testimony” from Gianna Jessen and Melissa Ohden, who “survived failed saline-infusion abortion attempts.” Howard noted that Jessen was “left with cerebral palsy due to a lack of oxygen during her mother’s...

    Complaints have been made over the influx of topless women prancing around Times Square and charging tourists to be in photos, deeming it inappropriate and offensive. The women, who cover their bodies in paint and and typically wear nothing but a thong, are not in trouble for being topless - which is legal in New York City - but for posing with underage children. The number of women at the tourist mecca have doubled in the last year, with about 40 walking around Times Square on the weekends, according to The New York Daily News.

    Extent of the Biblical Last Days By Charles S. Meek Amillennialists often understand that the biblical Last Days began in the first century, but are under the impression that the Last Days extend to the present time. Here’s why that cannot be correct. There are at least fourteen specific mentions of the Last Days or “End Times” in the New Testament: Matthew 24:14; Acts 2:14-20; 1 Corinthians 10:11; 1 Timothy 4:1; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; Hebrews 1:2; 9:26; James 5:3-9; 1 Peter 1:5; 1:20; 4:7; 2 Peter 3:3; 1 John 2:17-18; Jude 18. The culmination of none of these can be...

    Prophecy Questions blog ^ | May 17, 2015 | Riley O'Brien Powell
    There is much confusion in Christianity today surrounding the milieu of biblical eschatology. Specifically, there is widespread misunderstanding about the nature and timing of Jesus’ coming, arrival or presence (parousia in Greek). In popular preaching and imagination, it’s often called his “second coming” or “return.” Many life-long Jesus-followers are surprised to learn that these are not terms found in the Bible – and then to consider how these terms affect our thinking on just what this all means. But the rabbit-hole goes even deeper: What if the confusion about Jesus’ coming reaches even farther back, to a more basic misunderstanding...

Both the paper's headline writer and reporter David Joachim set the bar sky-high for anti-Obama scandal, using the evident lack of a smoking gun linking IRS persecution to the White House as an excuse to completely dismiss the scandal in a rather brief story, no matter what "strident" Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican who chaired the hearings, might think. The Washington Post was little better. Joachim's story was buried on page A13...

    It has become clear that Cliven Bundy was transgressed by the New York Times, his words taken out of context and retailed in such a way as to mean something they were not. Bundy is no racist, and the attempt to make him look like one is another step downward in the collapse of American national media. But conservatives still have a right -- in fact, a responsibility -- to be annoyed with Bundy. To wit: Bundy did not walk, not stumble, did not swerve into the trap set by the New York Times.

Forced to perform what amounts to emergency triage, agency officials said they had no choice but to stop work on about 500 of the nation’s Superfund sites, more than 60 percent of the total, with...

But in the editorial, the Times’ board criticised the Obama administration in much of the same way it scrutinized the Bush administration. It wrote that the Obama administration’s justification for the program —

    The good news is health care costs are going up more slowly. The bad news is that families continue to see larger medical bills. The typical cost to cover a family of four now exceeds $22,000, including the amount paid in insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs, according to the latest Milliman Medical Index for 2013. Milliman, an actuarial and benefits consultant, puts the cost at slightly less than the amount a family might pay to send a child to an in-state public college for a year. This year’s increase over last was only 6.3 percent, according to the analysis from...

    The people of Los Angeles would be up in arms if some out-of-town billionaires tried to buy the Dodgers and institute a rule that only right-handers could play on the team. Petitions would be signed, protests would be organized and politicians would rise up to condemn the sale. It would be nice if there were a similar outcry at the prospect of the Koch brothers buying the Los Angeles Times. After all, as exciting as it may be for a city to have a major league sports team, a good newspaper is a far more valuable asset.
  • Double Action: Two NY Times Columnists Embarrass Themselves on Guns in Sunday Review

    Two New York Times columnists embarrassed themselves over the weekend, betraying anti-gun ignorance in the paper's Sunday Review. Frank Bruni went hunting for the first time (with the chef of a ritzy Manhattan restaurant), and remarked "what an unfair fight" hunting is, as if he was the first person to think that up. After lamenting "how thoroughly a weapon can be romanticized and fetishized," he pivoted to easy access to guns in "this country of ours." "I could forget, when not aiming at a bird, to keep the gun pointed toward the sky or the ground. Or my pivot as...

    A fiendishly deceptive article about the New York Police Department in the New York Times has set back the cause of public safety not just in New York but nationally. A front-page story on Friday twisted a police commander’s exhortation to an underperforming officer to work harder against crime into an injunction to target blacks on the basis of race. The commander’s statements were captured on a tape secretly recorded by the officer and replayed last Thursday during a federal racial-profiling trial directed against the New York Police Department’s stop, question, and frisk policy. The officer had already joined the...
  • 'Sunday Times' posts Israel cartoon on Holocaust day

    The Sunday Times marked Holocaust Memorial Day in a less-than-traditional manner, running a virulently anti-Israel cartoon depicting a big-nosed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu paving a wall with the blood and limbs of writhing Palestinians. The cartoon included a caption beneath the image entitled "Israeli elections- will cementing peace continue?" Drawn by Gerald Scarfe, the cartoon appeared in the national paper on Sunday. “This cartoon would be offensive at any time of the year, but to publish it on International Holocaust Remembrance Day is sickening and expresses a deeply troubling mindset,” said European Jewish Congress President Dr. Moshe Kantor. “This insensitivity...

    The New York Times´s Manny Fernandez greeted the opening of the biannual Texas legislative session in Austin in Wednesday´s paper: "Texas Budget Surplus Proves as Contentious As a Previous Shortfall." After explaining how Texas has become flush with cash over the last two years, going from a budget deficit to surplus, Fernandez couldn´t help working in a cut against the "far-right" Tea Party. Shortly after noon inside the Capitol’s Senate chamber, Gov. Rick Perry told senators that the comptroller’s revenue estimate released the day before was good news, but cautioned them to retain the state’s fiscally conservative model.

    Georgetown University constitutional law professor Louis Michael Seidman has just about had it with the focus of his 40 years of academic study. As he writes in the New York Times on Monday, it is the Constitution itself which has allowed for the series of legislative follies that finally resulted in the “fiscal cliff.” Seidman says that it is time for Americans to realize what lawmakers have known since the constitution’s inception – it is okay to ignore it. “As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government...

    A spokeswoman for Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill’s re-election campaign told The Daily Caller that the senator and her husband first learned the criminal background of the man speaking out McCaskill’s husband’s business dealings from The New York Times. McCaskill spokeswoman Caitlin Legacki told TheDC on Friday that she thinks McCaskill and her husband Joseph Shepard discovered Craig Woods’ criminal background “[w]hen the New York Times told me in June that he’s a felon.” TheDC reported Thursday that Woods, a former employee of Shepard’s, alleged in a 2011 audiotape that Shepard used the U.S. Senate dining room to cut business...
  • Vanity: What's Left Before The Antichrist Comes?

    I think everyone agrees we're nearing the final days of the Earth as we know it. But what signs have you seen? Jews gathering in Israel to me was a huge sign that we're very close. You also see radical Islamists taking over Middle Eastern governments one by one. Once they have a majority I would suspect it won't be much longer. When will Israel attack Iran? All bets are that it happens before the election for a couple of reasons. A winter strike would be impossible. Plus, the Israeli's aren't taking the chance that Obama gets re-elected. Plus.. October...

    This week, Breitbart News offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who produced the infamous 2003 tapes of Barack Obama at an event honoring Palestinian anti-Israel radical Rashid Khalidi. And today, James Rainey of the Los Angeles Times took to his keyboard today to write a diatribe defending the Times’ refusal to make public those tapes. While Rainey gives several justifications for not releasing the tape itself – guarding the source of the tape being the most prevalent – he offers no justification for why the Times refuses to offer even a complete transcript of that evening’s events. Rainey rips the...
