END OF THE WORLD PT. 2
The May 21, 2011 church rapture prediction by Harold Camping has come and gone.
Those of us
who heard of his prediction must accept one of two possibilities of what happened on this date; either Jesus did return for
His church but found no one, including Mr. Camping, worthy to be raptured, or Mr. Camping gave a false prophecy.
Let's search the scriptures together as we take the Berean Approach to learn the truth regarding the end of
the world prophecies and the return of Jesus Christ. Click here for more information.
November 2010THE END OF THE WORLD
and today's "prophets"
The Christian church will be raptured on May 21, 2011.
At least according to divine insight from preacher Harold Camping, who also believe that the world will come to an
end on October 21, 2011. And then there’s the prophet Ronald Weinland who have also received divine messages that
Jesus will return to the earth on May 27, 2012…..or so he says. And what about the much publicized
Mayan calendar and the belief that the world will come to an end on December 21, 2012? What does the Bible teach about the
end of the world? Please join me as we take the Berean Approach to take a glimpse into eschatology to answer
these and similar questions regarding the end of the world. Click here for more information.
WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN?
Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopal, Baptist, Methodist, Mormon, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Jehovah Witnesses...these
are just a few of the many different religious communities that are called Christians. Did you know
that of the 6.7 billion people in the world today, 2.1 billion of them (or 1/3 of the world's population) identifies
themselves as Christian. Although on the decline, this number still represents the largest population within religious
communities. However, when the description of a Christian is illuminated by the light of the Holy Bible the actual
number of Christians plunges dramatically. Click here for more information. April
THE AMERICAN APOSTASY
Results from Trinity College’s 2008 national longitudinal religious
survey has revealed that the percentage of Christians in America has dropped from 86.2% in the 1990s to 76% in 2008. Could
this be the beginning of the great apostasy that is described in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 that will occur before the man
of sin (aka the Anti-Christ)is revealed? Click here for more information.
Welcome to The Berean Approach website
- the website designed for helping Believers become like the Bereans who searched the Word of God daily to confirm what was
taught before embracing it (Acts 17:11).
The Berean Approach is the practice of confirming
religious lessons and practices by researching the subject matter using authoritative resources (a trustworthy Bible, concordance,
Hebrew and Greek Lexicons, and Expository Bible Dictionary). Although this type of research practice is common in secular
educational institutions (at least among good students), in regards to religious studies, particularly within the Christian
Church, very few people actually take time to research what has been taught. Instead, it is commonly assumed that the lessons taught
by church leaders, as well as religious practices of the congregation, are indeed biblically based and therefore
correct and approved by God. However, when incorrect teachings and practices are introduced, they are
only passed down from one generation to another without ever being challenged to the writings of the Holy Scriptures. Some
of these erroneous practices can be traced as far back as the early church fathers. Through an extension
of this problem, countless Christian reference books, videos, and other materials containing these same errors
have been successfully promoted by some churches to justify their religious position and practices rather than allowing the
Holy Bible to justify and judge their position and practices, and the accuracy of these reference books.
is designed to promote how to study the Bible for yourself, how to understand the original content of Bible passages, how
to get behind the true meaning of the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek words of the Bible, and how to share what you learned with
others. The Berean Approach will dispel many myths and lies about the Bible that has been passed down from
generation to generation and will help you understand what "thus said the LORD". For example,
what does it mean to be "saved" and how does one really receive salvation? Is there really only one denominational
church that is recognized by God? How do you identify the true church of Jesus Christ and protect yourself
from deception? Does the Bible teach about a pre-tribulation rapture of the church or is this something
Join me in an exploration of God's holy and sacred Scriptures as we take The Berean Approach to
discover the truth behind these and other important subjects of the Holy Bible and Christian practices.
