Here is a really decent video of "President" Barak Obama talking with Turkish university students in Istanbul on April 7, 2009. I was tripped up by his comment in minute 34:00 of the video:

"And I also think that people were encouraged that somebody like me who has a background of living overseas, who has Muslims in his family -- you know, that I might be able to help to build bridges with other parts of the world."
Since when did the constitution warn us not to elect a person who lived overseas? He knows what the real controversy is about: not his family's mobility and religion; but, about his own truthfulness.

Sorry, this video does a lot of damage to his credibility in my eyes. You can watch it at:

I don't know whether this post will contribute to the discussion, or detract from it. But I feel the need to rectify my perspective.

It's all about Jesus, not my eschatology.

I searched for and found a decent video with the song, "On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand." All praise and glory go to God.

Here is an excellent treatment (rendition) by Crystal Lewis. Enjoy, and praise the Lord.


The reason I named this post, "Can We Talk?" is that I feel the need to clarify my position on eschatology. I read Acts 1:11 this morning. It shook my fledgeling preterist worldview to its core. I am still working through the rubble. It is the account of Jesus' ascension into heaven.

"Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing into heaven? This Jesus who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven."

I don't see how it could be any clearer. I know and believe the preterist interpretation of the Lord's predictions about his coming again in judgment on Jerusalem in 70 AD. But this verse says something in addition to that.

I have seen and read William Bell's fine article, "He Came In Like Manner: A Study of Acts 1:11." But I fail to embrace his position without reservations.

Perhaps I need a little more enlightenment. I pray for such, in Jesus' name, amen.
