“Iran two weeks away from weapons-grade uranium”: former IAEA senior official.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

“Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build an atomic weapon within two weeks and has, “in a certain way,” already reached the point of no return in its nuclear program, a former senior International Atomic Energy Association official said Monday,” reports the Times of Israel.

“I believe that if certain arrangements are done, it could even go down to two weeks. So there are a lot of concerns out there that Iran can hopefully now address, in this new phase, both at the P5+1 [talks between Tehran and six world powers] and with the IAEA,” former IAEA deputy director Olli Heinonen said, confirming a report released last week by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, which stated Iran could muster enough uranium for a bomb by converting all of its 20-percent enriched stockpile within 1 to 1.6 months.

@AskDrBrown Refuses to #Answer on Rick Joyner


In case you missed it, @DrMichaelLBrown. I hope to hear your response to my questions by Saturday: http://t.co/POVd9kyW30#strangefire

Dear Dr. Brown,

As you know, I sent you the above tweet Monday morning as I had not heard from you previously. I understand you are very busy, and wanted to give you the benefit of doubt that my second effort to appeal to you might have been overlooked. I don’t know whether you read the 2nd open letter, but it does seem at this point you do not intend in answering my initial questions on your relationship with Rick Joyner. This is disappointing, and unfortunately, your avoidance is revealing and speaks for itself:

Dr. Brown, I did not ask my questions as one of your disciples, seeking to understand a question on theology or Christian worldview. I came to you as a…

A Sack of Maggots

Zwinglius Redivivus

luthers-works-upgradeIn his Sermon at the Baptism of a certain soul, Luther said

To repent means that a person knows and confesses from the heart that, as the Scripture says, he was conceived and born in sin [Ps. 51:5] and is, therefore, by nature a child of wrath [Eph. 2:3], condemned to everlasting death and damnation, and that here all works are of no avail. They only make things go from bad to worse so long as people think they can accomplish by them what belongs to Christ alone, the sole mediator between God and men, who sacrificed Himself for us all that we might have forgiveness of sins through Him.

If you believe the former, then you have the latter. If not, you will never ever be free [of sin], even if you torture yourself to death. For it is called forgiveness of sins, not a payment for sins; a…

New Post: Can a Christian Commit Suicide?

This controversial topic has unfortunately often been addressed in emotional ways, not through biblical analysis. Those of us who grew up Roman Catholic have always heard suicide is a mortal sin that irretrievably sends people to hell. Influenced by the arguments of Augustine and Aquinas, this belief dominated through the Reformation. However, for Luther, the Devil is capable of oppressing (not possessing) a believer to the point of pushing him to commit the sin of suicide (Table Talk, Vol 54:29). As the salvation became better understood, many Reformation thinkers and theologians distanced their views from the Church of Rome.

Besides this traditional position of the Catholic Church, we encounter three others:

a) A true Christian would never commit suicide, since God wouldn’t allow it.

b) A Christian may commit suicide, but would lose his salvation.

c) A Christian may commit suicide without losing his salvation.

So what does the Bible say?

New Article: Is there Extra-Biblical Proof of Jesus

Historical evidence is derived from historical examination of archeological artifacts, which include primary and secondary source manuscripts. It is an absurd to hold that the New Testament writings that are by far the most reliable ancient writings in existence today[1] do not lend enough credibility to the existence of Jesus. But this being the case there is also more than enough reliable extra-Biblical ancient texts to prove that Jesus of Nazareth was a historical person.
