A Christian Answer to Euthyphro's Dilemma

A Christian Answer to Euthyphro's Dilemma: In a dialogue of Socrates with Euthyphro, a state's attorney heading to court in Athens to prosecute his own father, the Greek philosopher Plato reports an apparent dilemma for those who believe in God. Atheists argue that Euthyphro's Dilemma (see the full dialogue) shows that moral absolutes cannot logically flow from a divine being. As presented to the Christian:
 1) Is something (like humility) good because God recognizes it as good? Or,
 2) Is something good because God commands that it is good? (Then Thou Shall Nots could have been Thou Shalls)

Creation Movement Wrong on Historical Science

Ken Ham debates Bill Nye the science guy on creation* Can You Know a House Had a Builder? Creation organizations attempt to diminish "historical" science as compared to "observational" science. That claim, at odds with the overwhelming success of forensic science, comes awfully close to the false materialist claim that you can only really know what your five senses tell you. Question: Can you have a certainty that a house had a builder, even if you did not see your home being built? Yes. For, if you cannot trust your mind to ascertain many things that absolutely have happened in the past, then neither could you trust your eyes about what is happening in the present.

Scientific JournalsNatureSciencePNASPLoS OneProceedings of the Royal SocietyBoneActa Histochemica, the Journal of Vertebrate PaleontologyProteome Research, and others below in our chronological catalog, "the web's most complete list of dinosaur soft tissue discoveries," as published in many leading journals, according to a co-author of one of those papers.

Biological Material Found: As of 2016, in fossils from dinosaur-layer and deeper strata, researchers have discovered flexible and transparent blood vessels, red blood cells, many various proteins including beta-keratin, the microtubule building block tubulin, collagen, the cytoskeleton components actin, tropomyosin, and the related motor protein myosin, and hemoglobin, bone maintenance osteocyte cells, pigment and evidence of melanosomes, DNA-related histone proteins, and powerful evidence for DNA including positive results from multiple double-helix tests.

Dinosaur and Dinosaur-Layer Creatures: The dinosaurs and other Mesozoic creatures that have yielded their biological material are hadrosaur, titanosaur, ornithomimosaur [ostrich-like dinosaurs], mosasaur, [bird-like] Anchiornis huxleyi, triceratops, LufengosaursT. rex, and Archaeopteryx.

Hierarchy of Hermeneutics

A hermeneutic is a tool for interpreting the Bible that students use to better understand the Scriptures. Proper hermeneutics are invaluable. "Of all Bob Enyart's materials, the Hermeneutics Seminar is the best!" says Brian of Thornton, Colorado, a caller into the BEL radio program. Filmed at Denver's famous Brown Palace Hotel, Bob presents the most important hermeneutics, discusses their misuse, and gives examples of how to use them properly. This fascinating Bible study is available on MP3-CD or MP3 download. You can click to order online or call us at 1-800-8Enyart (836-9278) and either way you'll also get the extensive seminar handout and the slides that Bob presented to help folks remember each of the hermeneutics and how to use them.

At Bob Enyart's Hermeneutics Seminar the group studied not only the following list of hermeneutics but also the importance of the order in which they are presented and prioritized while interpreting Scripture. Here they are:

God: existence, eternity, and entity (i.e., the Godhead, as in Romans 1:20)
His Story: the plot, or storyline and narrative, of the Bible (grasping the Bible's overview is the key to its details)
His Nature: living, personal, relational, good, and loving (includes J.O.N.A.H. & N.O.A.H.)

Internet Etiquette and the Christian

logoFacebook, Jesus, and Your Church
(Anti-) Social Networking Etiquette

As at ten thousand other churches, use of Facebook, online forums (like TOL) and email affect the fellowship at Denver Bible Church. Consider these pastor’s tips for etiquette regarding online demeanor, the percentage of a congregation that “friends” one another, email use, and public ‘counseling.’

Is God Outside of Time? Not according to the Bible.

Most theologians join most of the philosophers of the last 2,500 years in saying that God is outside of time. Here, though, is a biblical proof showing that God is in time because the Scriptures teach in many ways that God experiences change in sequence: As God existed, as the Bible puts it, before the foundation of the world, God the Son was not also the SON OF MAN; but then He "became" flesh as "the Son of Man", and so God the Son remains eternally "the Man Jesus Christ" (1 Tim 2:5). But many theologians reject this proof that God has a past, and thus, that God is in time. Why? They claim that...

Is the Future Settled or Open? Dr. Lamerson vs. Enyart

Bob Enyart Debates Open Theism with D. James Kennedy's Professor of New Testament: in a written, 10-round moderated debate with Dr. Samuel Lamerson of Knox Theological Seminary on whether the future is settled or open (as featured at and hosted at TOL). Pastor Enyart also debated Open Theism in a short five-round format with Dr. Larry Bray, the president of the online TNARS, The North American Reformed Seminar (on Facebook) and Dr. James White at Denver's historic Brown Palace Hotel. But before looking at the Lamerson debate, see this 2-minute video that documents the shocking aftermath of the White debate:

Luther was an Anti-Semite and You Might Be, If...

-By Pastor Bob Enyart
Denver Bible Church
Talk Host,

Cover of an edition of Martin Luther's racist book, On the Jews and their Lies* Luther's "On the Jews and their Lies": As a Protestant myself, I sadly acknowledge the racism of a Protestant hero, Martin Luther. My review of Luther's 1543 book On the Jews and their Lies appears over at Google Books and at Amazon. From that review, and from my book The Plot, consider:

The Critical Collection in German 

As the Pastor of Denver Bible Church, before quoting the following excerpts from Luther's book, I asked Alfred, a friend from Germany, to go with me to the University of Colorado's library in Boulder to confirm that the following English passages accurately translate Luther's original German. Alfred opened Vol. 53 (of 67) of Kritische Gesamtausgabe (Critical Collection, publishing in Weimar, Germany, began with H. Böhlau in 1883). He read words showing a horrifying depth of racism and hatred. Alfred's hands shook and he choked back tears, but translated essentially these same words that you can read here.

Miracles and Unbelief (i.e., they tend to PRODUCE unbelief)

Sections of the Bible differ in how commonly they record miracles. But there is one thread that runs consistently throughout: Miracles foster unbelief. God's great miracles through Moses filled Egypt with undeniable evidence for the God of Israel (Ex. 9:27). Yet neither the Bible nor history records Egyptian repentance, only good riddance (Ps. 105:38; Ex. 12:35-36; 14:25). Further and more dramatic, consider the effect of those tremendous miracles on the Israelites themselves. The Lord produced water out of the Rock (Ex. 17:2-6), fed the people with food from heaven (Ex. 16:4-7) brought meat on demand (Num. 11:31-32; Ps. 105:40), and supernaturally kept clothes from wearing out for forty years (Deut. 8:4). Yet with all this, virtually the entire nation rejected God. Why?

National Sales Tax Debate: Bob vs. the Top Advocates

Bob Enyart debated fellow radio host Neal Boortz over a national sales tax. As a national spokesman for FairTax, a national 22% sales tax, this is a major issue for libertarian Boortz, but a topic hardly ever addressed by Bob, who is more focused on presenting God as Creator, and other such matters. Yet even though The Enyart-Boortz Sales Tax Debate moves Bob squarely onto libertarian turf, still the fight hardly seems fair. For if the biblical worldview is correct, Christians should be able to demonstrate the truth and expose error far more effectively than others. Boortz then broke his promise and so far has not posted a link to the debate as he had said he would.

Nicer than God

Christians today are nicer than God. Or at least they are trying to be so. In the Church there is a standard of niceness that Jesus failed to reach while on earth. Comparing God's attitude and behavior with that of the Church today shows that believers are far more polite, tolerant, understanding and respectful to the wicked than God is. The Church is also less offensive, rude and sarcastic than God's men in the Bible were. And no Christian would ever be caught dead mocking the wicked, as God's men in the Bible sometimes did. The Bible sometimes ministers through ridicule, humor, sarcasm, name-calling, and even mocking. For example, God mocked and defeated the Midianites by giving them a nightmare in which they were attacked by a loaf of bread (Jud. 7:13-14). Elijah, just prior to executing 450 prophets of Baal, "mocked them" as the Bible says, telling them to yell louder to their god so that Baal could hear their prayers since he was either on a trip, sleeping or in the restroom (Hebrew, "private place," 1 Ki. 18:27; and 2 Ki. 6:8-20). And Jesus rebuked the multitudes for not responding in faith to John the Baptist's message as He ridiculed them...

O.J. Simpson Memorabilia Burned by Radio Host

This Bob Enyart Live protest of the murderer O.J. Simpson was also reported in Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, the Boston Globe [or pdf], Houston Chronicle, and hundreds of other papers via the AP, by CNN, MS-NBC, Comedy Central, Getty Images, CBS News, the San Francisco Chronicle's Peter Hartlaub, the L.A. Times' Mike Downey, in BBC flashbacks,, People magazine, etc. "We had a bit of a bonfire going there at the L.A. courthouse," said Christian talk radio host Bob Enyart in regards to the burning of several O.J. Simpson articles on Wednesday, February 17, 1999. The burning of the auctioned O.J. memorabilia was reported across the United States, by CBC News in Canada, and by the BBC. In a 48-hour period a band of ten individuals wearing black t-shirts turned the L.A. courthouse upside down and generated a media frenzy. The Associated Press article printed in most of the major newspapers across the United States, reported that it was "a protest organized by a Christian radio talk show host."

On Doubt: What Does a Christian Doubt?

In an online discussion over at Prometheus Unbound, Santi, an agnostic, asked Bob Enyart about his doubts. You can read their discussion over at From Bob's answer: "Santi, you’re asking me to indicate, of the beliefs that I hold, which ones do I sometimes doubt. To help myself think this through, I’ll first list the things I never ever doubt. I never doubt that I exist; and therefore I know that there is a reality. I never doubt that truth exists, because for example, it is true that I exist..."

On the Jews Who Reject Christ and TV Preachers OK with That

Various televangelists, including John Hagee, promote a false teaching, that Jews can reject Christ and still have salvation. This of course directly contradicts the claims of Jesus Himself, and of the apostles, and even of the Hebrew Scriptures. The quotes below do not come from typical English language translations of the Bible, but appropriately, from specifically Jewish translations into English, from the Jewish New Testament and from the Old Testament Tanakh.

Peer-reviewed: Enyart's paper on Dobzhansky

One paper per CRSQ issues is available to the public, and the editor selected Bob's, so you can just click to get it!On the 40th anniversary of the most popular evolution article ever written, the Creation Research Society Quarterly published Bob Enyart's paper, Dobzhansky -- Forty Years Later Nothing Makes Sense.

Abstract: Forty years ago Theodosius Dobzhansky, a scientist credited with developing the reigning paradigm of neo-Darwinism, published his iconic article with the famed title, "Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution." The intervening decades have seen his three predictions falsified; namely those regarding genetics and the tree of life, the role evolution theory would play in the progress of biological science, and one particular Arab sheik whom Dobzhansky identified by name. Dobzhanky's claims are evaluated in the light of four decades of hindsight, much additional scientific research, and the continued development of the creation model. His arguments regarding the diversity of life, biological universals, and abiogenesis are answered in a point-by-point presentation.

Private Letter to Dr. Dobson (made public... obviously)

Dr. James Dobson
Colo. Springs CO

September 27, 2007

Pastor Bob Enyart
6126 Braun Court
Arvada CO 80004

Dear Dr. Dobson,

I hope you are well. We have written open letters to you, and this private letter is the only mail we will ever send to you at your home address. We've had this address for two and a half years, and haven't used it out of respect for your privacy. Now, we will use it just this once.

Your son Ryan was on my radio show on January 26th of this year to discuss his book about intolerance. Of course when interviewing him I never brought up our disagreement with you, because he is his own man, and deserves his own opportunity to minister as God has laid on his heart. In a moment, I'll share something important that has to do with your son and with Franklin Graham. But first, I am sure you are either angry with me and our fellow signers of the open letters, or at least, you are hurt; so you may want to throw this letter down. But I beg of you, as someone who has loved you since soon after I became a Christian in 1973, I beg of you to read this letter.

My wife Cheryl and I have raised seven boys (and we're still doing so). Before the oldest was born, I read your book so I could do a better job raising my children than my father did raising me and my brothers (we all dearly love him and he is now with the Lord). Our youngest three are still at home, and so Cheryl and I have been reading Bringing Up Boys

Rebutting the geocentrist film: The Principle

Kate Mulgrew Narrated Geocentrism Film: In September 2013, when RSR asked Rick Delano, producer of The Principle, if his movie was about geocentrism, he lied and told Bob Enyart that it was not, but that it was instead about evidence against the big bang. That misrepresentation led RSR to invite scientists and engineers to a special Denver screening of the film for Real Science Radio. As the film ended, in front of Delano, his marketing director, and the gathered audience, Bob Enyart stood up and apologized to the attendees. Today, on the day of the film's Chicago premiere, October 24th, 2014, Real Science Radio hosts Bob and Fred Williams discuss the scientific and biblical arguments below to rebut the documentary. The film claims that the Sun (and the universe) orbits around the Earth every 24 hours. The film attempted to mislead the audience into thinking that its geocentrism was supported by:
1) the latest Planck satellite confirmations of the so-called Axis of Evil
2) the narrator, Kate Mulgrew of Star Trek fame, and
3) the scientists interviewed (including Lawrence Krauss, George Ellis, Michio Kaku, Max Tegmark, and John Hartnett).
None of these in anyway affirm the film's claim of geocentrism. For the enthusiast though, there's plenty of fun science to learn while refuting geocentrism as you can see here...

Replacement Theology

* Chart, Excerpt, & Thread: Replacement Theology is the teaching that God is done with national Israel as a covenant people and that now and forever He works instead only with the Church. As we document at, an especially depraved anti-Semitism has been rampant through church history destroying the earthly lives of countless Jews and bringing shame to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many Christians have held to Replacement Theology without becoming anti-Semites but for millions of others this doctrine was the sufficient spark to enflame their sinful hatred. To refute this doctrine ¸please see below the Replacement Theology vs. Romans 11 chart and see this excerpt from Bob Enyart's life's work, The Plotwhere the overview of the Bible becomes the key to its details! And see also the following Facebook thread.

* Chuck Baldwin & Replacement Theology: The following screenshots document the brief interaction in this Facebook thread between Bob Enyart and pastor Chuck Baldwin, whom Bob Enyart concludes is anti-Semite:

Richard Dawkins 3-to-1 Evolution Challenge

DAWKIN'S 3-to-1 EVOLUTION CHALLENGE from RSRFrom Real Science Radio:

The Richard Dawkins 3-to-1 Evolution Challenge

Research in preparation for an upcoming debate led Bob Enyart and his associate Will Duffy to Oxford University in the United Kingdom. With the success of RSR's PZ Myers Trochlea Challenge (see the popular evolutionist's reply here), the guys decided to hand deliver a copy of this Dawkins 3-to-1 Challenge to the office of professor emeritus Richard Dawkins, who lectures there for a course titled, Science Literacy: Evolution for Non-Scientists.



RSR's Big List of...

After our debate with Lawrence Krauss, a leading big bang proponent, RSR produced our list of peer-reviewed scientific evidence against the big bang and against the widely-held major features of its cosmological belief system. Real Science Radio continues to update our popular List of Evidence Against the Big Bang! The quote from theoretical physicist (emphasis on the theoretical) Lawrence Krauss that got Bob Enyart and Fred Williams all worked up was that, "all evidence overwhelmingly supports the big bang." Wow. You can evaluate the trustworthiness of that assessment yourself with the amazing list of scientific evidence against the big bang, right here...

Should Christians Judge?

Judge Rightly Is Not Some Guy's Name

Should Christians judge? Jesus commanded men to judge rightly and He told them to judge not. Did the Lord contradict Himself? Or does the Bible say more about judging than Christians are generally taught?

Screen shot of Mat. 7 with the words "judge not" circled and all the others crossed outDon't judge? But Jesus repeatedly taught men to judge rightly, insisting they "judge with righteous judgment" (John 7:24) and He praised a man who "rightly judged" (Luke 7:43). Paul shamed the Corinthian Christians because no one among them was willing to "judge the smallest matters" (1 Cor. 6:2). As the Apostle wrote, "He who is spiritual judges all things" for "we have the mind of Christ" (1 Cor. 2:15-16).

Where did we get the notion that men should never judge? Should child-molesters escape condemnation? Should rapists be free from criticism? Should society refrain from judging those arrested for murder? Why would anyone judge others for judging?  And if a pastor teaches "don't judge" regarding abortion and homosexuality, what would he say about a parishioner who doesn't donate but rather takes money out of the collection plate?

A lie has partially paralyzed the church. God warns against "hypocrisy" commanding men to "abhor what is evil" (Rom. 12:9). Yet to abhor evil, someone must first judge evil. Likewise, you have to judge if you're going to obey Jesus' command: "If your brother sins against you, rebuke him" (Luke 17:3). But, unwilling to judge, large numbers of Christians become hypocrites by obeying the Hypocrites Golden Rule. Since the hypocrite doesn’t want to be judged, he judges not, as Jesus said, "Judge not… you hypocrite" (Mat. 7:1, 5 KJV; Ezek. 16:52). For "judge not" (Mat. 7:1-5) is simply a hypocrites application of do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Mat. 7:12). “For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged” (Mat. 7:2). Judge others as you would have them do unto you inverted is Judge not if you do not want to be judged.

Summit Clock Experiment 2.0: Time is Absolute

A Layman Questions Gravitational Time Dilation

* Einstein’s theory of General Relativity indicates that gravity influences time, in that time flows relatively more slowly in a stronger gravitational field as compared to time in a weaker field.
* Actual experiments and observations provide evidence for GR time dilation. For example, clocks at different Earth altitudes run at different rates, thus the mile high atomic clock in Colorado runs a few ticks faster per year than the one close to sea level in Greenwich, England.
* Most physicists and cosmologists accept GR time dilation, and thus, that time is relative to a particular frame of reference.

And in that context, when Googling “Gravitational Time Dilation” I get: Google 7 from “Gravitational time dilation is the slowing down of the passage of time anywhere in the gravitational field.” Google 11: “The short and sloppy versions say: "… ‘Time runs slower as you descend into the potential well of a uniform pseudo-force field.’” From Google 9: “The idea of relativity is to throw out the concept of us traveling through time inescapably, and accept time as just another dimension.”

Consider this exaggerated scenario to illustrate my opposition to time dilation, and then I’ll suggest a practical experiment that could test my conclusion.

Two atomic clocks have been running on Earth for billions of years, one at the base of Cheyenne Mountain, and the other at the summit, sitting inside of a well-maintained Chinook cargo helicopter. The clock on the peak has been running faster by a few nanoseconds per year, but over the eons, it has advanced to twenty-four hours ahead of the clock far below, and it’s readout, in year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and nanosecond, is just now turning over to indicate exactly twenty-four hours ahead of the other clock, on a Friday at exactly

Talking Points: Abortion for Rape, Incest, and Mother's Life

With abortion for incest, the abortion clinic helps to cover up the crime, typically sends the victim back home to her rapist. often sends her home with the relative who raped her. Abortion for incest emboldens a criminal to rape his young relative because it helps the rapist escape being caught and so it tempts the rapist to repeat his crime. Incest abortion is not compassionate...

The Biblical Role of Government in Marriage

Who has the authority to grant permission for people to marry? Some claim that only the church has authority to preside over weddings. Yet in modern times most people willingly submit to the government as the official certifier of marriage. For as barista Leanna Aberle has said, "Marriage is a covenant not only between the man, the woman, and God, but also with the whole world." Others however claim that the authority to marry lies solely with the two individuals involved. (Our article The Bible and Polygamy presents the prohibition of polygamy in New Testament times.) Consider arguments for and against each of these three ideas on authority regarding marriage.

The Casting of Lots in the Bible

What does the Bible say about the casting of lots? What was the purpose and is there a scriptural reason today to cast lots? The casting of lots in the Bible is similar to throwing dice or drawing straws. It served two godly purposes:
- Revealing God's Will to Prophet or Priest: but this ended along with the Levitical priesthood. Heb. 7:12
- Encouraging Humility: as it causes contentions to cease and keeps the mighty apart. Prov. 18:18

The KJO Debate: Enyart & Duffy vs. Will Kinney

What God permits, let not man forbid, lest he make an idol.

If God permits men to freely make copies of His inspired Word, and to translate His Word (as we will show that He does), so that thousands, millions, even billions of men, women, and children can read about Him for themselves and in their own language, then those who forbid this continued dissemination of Scripture establish themselves as an authority above God Himself.

What Does the Bible Say About Abortion?

The Bible contains passages that have direct bearing on the abortion issue, specifically to the crime of killing the unborn child, and generally to the "pro-choice" battle and the principles of life and death. Because there is a lot of scripture on this topic, our Clickable Contents index will link you to the relevant section of this article. So start with a topic that's most relevant to your concern:

What Does the Bible Say About Pot?

Why Marijuana Should Be Illegal: [UPDATE: See also Bob Enyart's debate on pot at] The question of marijuana legalization, often debated emotionally, turns on some fundamental biblical principles. Christians, or anyone really, must understand these moral concepts before being able to argue conclusively. God does not require society to put up with the risk of human beings who lose control of their faculties by being high, whether through alcohol or other drugs. Further, as shown in the Neighbors section below, the Bible reveals that negligence has legal consequences. Thus, if the government wrongly decriminalizes some activity, then the government itself would share in the guilt for the resulting harm. While THC prescription drugs made from marijuana are currently available, and a non-intoxicating strain of marijuana has been developed in 2012, many advocate going far beyond this toward making "medical marijuana" generally available and even toward the ultimate decriminalization of cannabis. However, if the normal use of any chemical or herb, such as crack cocaine, ecstasy, or marijuana, makes a person intoxicated, then the government is right to outlaw or to classify that drug as a controlled substance.

What Does the Bible Say About Slavery?

The Bible both prohibits certain kinds of slavery, and permits other kinds, and so does our own U.S. Constitution by the 13th Amendment, which abolished only certain forms of slavery. The Bible condemns kidnapping as a capital crime, and kidnapping is what fueled the African slave trade to America from the 1500s to 1800s. Therefore, because the Old and New Testaments (Ex. 21:16; 1 Tim. 1:9-10; etc.) condemn kidnapping, the teaching of Scripture condemns virtually the entirety of American slavery...

What Does the Bible Say About the Death Penalty

What Does the Bible Say About the Death Penalty?
See this New Testament Support for Capital Punishment!

Update: Since 2001, search engines like Google have typically ranked the following article as number one out of millions for the words: God death penalty. Since 2002, Justice Antonin Scalia's related article at First Things ranked in the top 10 for nearly a decade but never beat out this article which appears here at and over at

Question: Do any New Testament personalities or books support execution?
: As shown directly in the verses below, Jesus, Paul, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Hebrews, Revelation, and an angel all give strong support for the death penalty...

What does the Bible say about wine? (drinking alcohol)

UPDATE: This article includes content from Bob Enyart's radio debate with a Denver Church of Christ preacher, Chris Peltz, about drinking wine. Two weeks prior to our broadcast, Brian from Thornton called into Peltz' radio program presenting three lines of evidence that Bible teaching generally and Jesus in particular approve of drinking alcohol, but that to excess, it is drunkenness that is the sin. Denver Bible Church agrees with Brian that God's Word approves of drinking wine, beer and other alcohol. First consider that the warnings against drunkenness actaully affirm the drinking of alcohol in modertion. And then see below the many biblical evidences showing that God approves of wine.

What is Money?

Definition of Money: In the 1990s here at Bob Enyart Live, I wrongly claimed that justice required a return to the gold standard, whereby currency was formerly backed by reserves of precious metals. Years ago you could return a $10 bill, also called a gold certificate, to a bank and receive a certain amount of gold. After studying and thinking about money for years, interacting with one of the world's leading consultants on monetary policy, reading economic texts such as Ludwig von Mises' Theory of Money and Credit, and reflecting on the Bible, I now affirm that while metals can be used as money, money itself is not gold or silver. And money is more than simply a medium of exchange. Rather, money is more like a transferable IOU. Most accurately, money is the accounting of transferable incomplete transactions. Thus as those transactions are completed, the actual money based on those transactions, disappears...

What is Terrorism? The Best Definition...

More than 37,291 deadly Muslim terrorist attacks since 9/11.
That's NOT a misprint. Please read that again. And think.
See the list at
A report delivered at the liberal Counsel on Foreign Relations
found in one year 121 violent Islamist groups operating
in 66 countries committed more than a dozen attacks a day
in Allah's name murdering 42,000 people just in 2017.
Double that to count Syria too. See all this at CBS News.
No fringe group could commit all these atrocities. Islamic terror is widespread.

* Who Hates Muslims the Most? "The primary victims of Islamic extremism are Muslims. So anything less than a full effort to identify and defeat Islamic terror is a hatred, including self-loathing, of Muslims." - Bob Enyart,

* The Media Says that Islam is Tolerant: "If Islam is a religion of tolerance, then how many synagogues are in Mecca, a 500-square-mile city of a million people? None. And how many churches are in the entire country of Saudi Arabia? None. Islam is the religion of intolerance. (Meanwhile, there is the Great Synagogue of Rome and the Mosque of Rome.)" -Bob Enyart,

* The Media Says Islam is a Peaceful Religion: "Saudi Arabia, Iran, and four other Islamic countries have laws that call for the death penalty for a Muslim who converts to Christianity or some other religion. Some have the same for denigrating Mohammad and Allah. When someone says Islam is a religion of peace, just ask, 'Where?'" -Bob Enyart,

* Saudi Arabia, the Hajj, and Terrorism: "If Islam opposes terrorism, then Saudi Arabia should announce that no one supportive of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, or any jihadi group or terrorist action, is welcome in Mecca to make Hajj." -Bob Enyart, [Yes, if they don't make Hajj, some think they'd go to hell. But at least then they'd be with Mohammed. But instead of forbidding terror supporters, tragically, Saudi Arabia has celebrated an admitted jihadist bomber who killed kids. See Sbarro, just below.]

* The "Link" to Terror is the "Justification": When governments and the media wrongly claim that a particular Muslim mass murderer has no "link" to Islamic terror (see below the Ali Sonbaly example at, realize that the only relevant "connection" to terrorism is the motivation, that is, the alleged "justification" used to commit an atrocity. A Muslim murderer shouting "Allahu Akbar" is by definition connected to Islamic terror.

* DEFINITION: Terrorism is violent crime committed to influence public policy. Perfectly good words exist to describe other heinous acts, like murder, genocide, unjust war, revenge killing, arson, mass murder, bombing, war crime, monstrous, etc. Terrorism is not workplace violence. It is not unjust domestic or foreign war waged by nations. Terror is not a family murder-suicide nor revenge against a boss, a school, or whomever, regardless of the weapons used, the amount of terror inflicted, or the number of victims. Such unjust and criminal behavior terrorizes people, but only with the aim of influencing public policy does such behavior, committed by an individual or group, qualify as terrorism.

What's So Firm About Day 2?

"God called the firmament Heaven." Why? Moses used the word firmament nine times in Genesis chapter one. He intentionally distinguished the last four occurrences from the first four. Each of the four in the second grouping (vv. 14, 15, 17, 20) is qualified separately with the prepositional phrase "of the heavens," distinguishing between the first firmament of the earth, and the second firmament of the heavens, so that the reader will not confuse this firmament of sky and space with the previous firmament of earth, which in the original creation, was a paradise that was part of God's kingdom of heaven. [Update: A popular atheist made a 40-minute video critical of this article. Seems we hit a nerve, for seeing the crust of the earth as the "firmament" rebuts the false allegation of atheists that the Bible teaches that the earth is surrounded by a solid domed sky. So we embedded the video and responded...]

When Did Adam and Eve Fall?

When did the fall in the Garden of Eden occur? That is, how soon after their creation on day six did Adam and Eve sin? A Creation magazine article, Why Bible History Matters by Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, makes three observations that provide a time frame:
   1. Adam and Eve did not conceive any children prior to the Fall
   2. Eve would likely have become pregnant during her first menstrual cycle
   3. Lucifer also would have rebelled in the short time between Creation and the Fall.
 In this KGOV article, Bob Enyart adds some fascinating Bible details to find out even more about the timing of the fall...

Why Was Canaan Cursed?

Why did Noah curse his grandson Canaan? (In 2009, this Canaan article was updated with a discovery and a science prediction regarding the human genome.) This boy’s father, Ham, saw Noah’s nakedness, and as a result, Noah cursed Canaan, who became the patriarch of Israel’s enemies, the Canaanites. The story seems capricious on the surface, in contrast to so much reasonable history in Genesis. Let’s take another look at what happened.
