Things the Bible does not say about the end times.

Someone who read this list elsewhere, suggested that I post this in my blog, so here it is: Things some people say (which the Bible DOES NOT) about the End Times   Notice, that this list, does not establish any end times theory, it tries to prove nothing. It does not even attack a theory, or attempt to refute one.    What it does attempt to do, is to get people to ask themselves, why they believe certain things, that the Bible never says.   So basically, in between t
 

Division and Denominations

Why is the church divided by denominations? Posted by Omegaman 2.0 on the September 4th, 2007 Why are there so many denominations? Why is the church divided? I see these questions occasionally in chat. They are good questions. It is a question Christians have, especially new believers trying to choose their first church. It is a question non-believers have too. For them, it is evidence that Christians cannot even agree on what the Bible says. Truthfully, they

2000 Posts! Wait, 2000 posts?

Today I posted my 2000th post on Worthy Christian Forums. This is a milestone I have been somewhat regretting, There was a time, when hitting the milestone of 1000 posts, indicated to me, that I had no life, was spending far too much time online. On the one hand, let's say I spent 10 minutes on average for each post. I suspect my posts usually take far longer than that, but just for fun, 10 minutes it is. Ten minutes times 2000, it 20,000 minutes. That is 333 hours and 20 minutes. Another way

The Christian and the Tithe - a Biblical examination

For as long as I have attended church, it seems to me that I have heard the phrase "tithes and offerings". Sometimes, I have heard the word "gifts" used. In most of these cases, it has been about putting money in a plate, a basket or sometimes a cloth bag. Over the years, I have heard my share of sermons on the importance of tithing. I had attended churches, when I was not even a believer, and when the plate came around, felt a bit uncomfortable, partially because I had no idea what was customar

Before Resurrection Day

This time of year, I seem to have developed a personal tradition here on Worthy, of drawing attention to a topic of mine, for the purpose of drawing attention to an aspect of His crucifixion. I have not done it in this blog before, and since it has been a while since I have posted in this blog, I guess I will do this here. What "this" is, is a study based on Matthew 27 and Psalm 22. There is a video version: and there is a text version:

Diet and exercise as a way to lose weight

Update 7/11/15 In addition to what I wrote below: I just made a web page where you can estimate approximate calories burned with a few common type of exercise.   Update 7/18.2015 I bought a Marcy Stationary Fan exercise bicycle last week. I must say, getting it out of the box and assembling it, was a fair amount of exercise itself. It seems to be well made, and it does indeed let me burn some calories, and not in an unpleasant way. I like that it is easy to use, and keeps count of things, lik

Are you a poor American?

Are you a poor American? The following is a copy of a blog entry I (Omegaman) made at Worthy Ministries in 2007, and some of the responses it provoked. Since this was published so long ago, many of the links will no longer function. Poverty in America I realize that many reading this are not in America, nor are they perhaps very familiar with United States society. For those of you that are in this non - U.S. perspective, you may have to adjust the details of this

On the Significance of the Age of the Earth

On the significance of the age of the Earth Omegaman Republished from an earlier post on Feb 28, 2009 Is the Earth Old or Young ? No answers here, but some things to think about. I hear this question frequently, but I always wonder what is in the mind of the person asking the question. Is the answer to this question important, and if so, why and in what ways? An unbeliever might like to pit the conclusions of modern scientists, who almost universally hold to the i

Things which are needful

I have been studying eschatology for more than 30 years now. Originally I believed in a pre-tribulation rapture because frankly it was the only view I had ever heard. One day I was listening to the radio and heard a man mentioning the fact that there were other views on the topic. This got my curiosity up and I decided to study the Bible myself and see if I could discover what the Bible itself actually taught about these things. I was really serious about it. The method I chose to employ wa

Why I assume the Rapture will follow the Great Tribulation

The Post-trib position in a nutshell compared with the Bible A short bible study on a topic that some want to make way too complicated - Omegaman Post-Trib Belief What the Bible (NASB) Says   The software here makes formatting difficult. There is an easier to read version if you prefer   There will be a time of trouble Jesus called birth pangs   You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the en

Is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme?

I think I originally posted this as a regular post. Later, the worthy news bot published it. However, it definetly qualifies as one of my rants, so I am republishing it in my blog, Also, if you read it, and want to reply, you might want to do so in the where some have already replied. Is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme? Reading a lot of forum comments, I see that when Rick Perry referred to Social Security as a Ponzi Scheme, that many people took exception to that characterization.

How I Study the Bible - One Approach

Sept. 18th, 2008 - - - Post Script - There is also a version of this post at the blog on my website which has links to online copies of the books mentioned In as much as several of you lately, and many over the years have asked how I go about Bible Study and why I think my approach is a good one, I have decided to blog on that topic. First off, I do three different types of Bible studies. Expository, topical, and word studies. As I define the terms, an expository study is one were I

Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?

We all wonder what will happen to us after we die. When a loved one dies, we long to see him or her again after our turn comes. Will we have a glorious reunion with those we love or is death the end of all consciousness? Jesus taught that life does not end after our bodies die. He made this startling claim: “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die like everyone else, will live again.” According to the eyewitnesses closest to him, Jesus then demonstrat

It's My Right - (or is it?)

It’s My Right! Or is it? Everyone seems to be claiming to have this or that right these days. Lately, I have gotten into a few conversations and debates, having to do with so-called rights. Those who are familiar with my rants on topics political and social have heard me say that rights are not plucked from trees. Rights, true rights, ultimate rights, can only be dictated by our Creator. It is for His pleasure and purposes, that we exist, everything we are, everything we have, everything we

Propaganda, deception, myth, junk science, can you distinguish the truth?

Propaganda, deception, myth, junk science, can you distinguish the truth? published December 16, 2010 Notice the title carefully. It describes the subject. I will be using some examples of things that might fall into the categories above, but please remember that the examples are not the topic, the topic is about being deceived vs. discerning the truth. We are bombarded with messages from television, newspapers, magazines, movies, radio, schools, the web. Even our friends share their opini

What Worthy Means to Me

What worthy means to me. Posted by Omegaman 2.0 on the April 11th, 2006 I came to worthychat as a fluke (God may have had something else in mind). I had tried a chatroom one time before, and thought that it was crazy, I wondered how anyone could keep up. One night I had nothing better to do, and I wondered if any Christian chat rooms existed, and what were they like? I Googled for Christian chatrooms, and found Worthy. People greeting me were friendly. I do not know how I got into the

Lessons form the McDonalds Hot Coffee Lawsuit

The McDonalds Hot Coffee Lawsuit - What You Didn't Hear Originally published here on May 6, 2008 Probably at some point, you have heard of the woman who spilled hot coffee in her lap, and sued McDonald’s for millions. What you usually hear, is how this woman drove into the drive-thru at McDonald’s and bought hot coffee, that she then stuck between her legs. Because it was a Styrofoam cup with a slip on slid, the coffee spilled in her lap. Then you hear that that this lady was awarded near
