Journey to Reality–Sacramental Life in a Secular Age
Last Thursday at 5:51 AM

We live in an era deeply shaped by secularism. Because secular ideas are at the heart of our culture, modern people tend to think in secular ways without realizing it—even the most well-meaning of us. How then do we live in, but not be of, a secular culture? We need to understand the enchanted, Sacramental way that the early Christians viewed the world, but we also need to understand secularism. To truly understand Christianity, we must unlearn an entire secular worldview and become participants in a sacramental worldview instead—a worldview that embraces reality as it truly is. How do yo...


Is this Hank’s Most Beautiful Book? The NEW Complete Bible Answer Book
06/27/2024

What do you do when you don’t know the answer to a question? “Research and return” is Hank’s policy when asked a question on the Bible Answer Man that he is unsure of—something we should all practice when we are unsure of an answer.Likewise, Hank Hanegraaff understands that sometimes answers that he did provide may have been incorrect or insufficient.

While you may have seen some of the same questions in past editions of The Complete Bible Answer Book—this Collectors Edition pays testament to the policy of research and return—as each answer was retur...


Will God’s People Be Raptured? The Heart of Christian Zionism
06/06/2024

The heart of Christian Zionism is that God has two distinct people—one of whom must be raptured (the church) before God can continue His plan with the other (Israel). Is it true that God’s chosen people will be raptured? “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, more nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” –the apostle Paul (Galatians 3:28-29)
 
Hank Hanegraaff examines and responds to the heart of Christian Zionism in this special teaching edition of th...


The Most Significant Christian Leader of Our Generation with Metropolitan K.P. Yohannan
05/23/2024

Yohannan—fell asleep in the Lord. Hank opens the podcast by paying tribute to a man who not only revolutionized world missions but was also one of Hank’s closest friends and mentors. This memorial is followed by an encore presentation of their last conversation on this podcast. We hope that it will richly bless your life and open your heart, soul, and mind to the mission...


What is Replacement Theology?
05/16/2024

The phrase replacement theologian is designed to be an insult. It is the ultimate pejorative leveled at those who deny the heart of dispensationalism—namely, that God has two distinct peoples, one of whom must be raptured (the church) before God can continue His plan with the other (Israel). So—what is replacement theology?For more on this check out the special print edition of the Christian Research Journal entitled “A Biblical Response to Christian Zionism.” Click the following link for more information: A Biblical Response to Christian Zionism – Christian Research Institute. https://www.equip.org/product/special-print-issue-of-the-christian-research-journal-a-biblical-response-to-christian-zionism-hup/

Should Christians Believe in the Pre-tribulational Rapture Theory?
04/25/2024

The pre-tribulational rapture theory, popularized by John Nelson Darby in the nineteenth century, contends that God has two distinct people and two distinct plans for their two distinct destinies. The church will be raptured—what David Jeremiah dubs “the Great Disappearance—seven years prior to the second coming of Christ, and Jews will suffer tribulation. Beginning with Darby, rapture theorists hold that, due to the murder of Messiah, Jews were in for a time of unprecedented suffering referred to as the “Great Tribulation.” The late Tim LaHaye, co-author of the Left Behind series, described the coming Jewish holocaust as “Antichrist’s ‘final solut...
