Author of coun ...

Ideas have consequences and eschatology has implications. What you believe about tomorrow affects how you live today. While Gary often pokes holes in Dispensational eschatology, non-dispensationalists have their own cultural decay problems due largely to their views about the future. Obsessing about how it will all end paralyzes Christians into ina…
 
Gary responds to two recent postings about current events and the "rapture of the church." Two important questions that should precede any discussion of the rapture is 1) what is meant by the rapture and 2) what does the Bible teach (or not teach) about it? Too often, prophecy writers and speakers assume the legitimacy of the doctrine of the raptur…
 
Gary continues his interview with Luke and Joy from Apologia Radio. The conversations begins with historical artifacts and moves to how a Christian should think about national defense. A show of force is important and can help keep the peace at times, but at other times it can be a hindrance to foreign relations and evangelizing.…
 
In this first part of an interview with Luke and Joy from Apologia Radio, Gary discusses the book, The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. While the influence of Christianity on the founding of America is undeniable, this book collects so much of that history into one volume that it is something of a library…
 
Gary responds to a recent article that claims to "deconstruct" the understanding of the Dominion Mandate in Genesis 1:28. The idea is not for one group of people to dominate another group of people, but to have authority. The author mistakes "dominion" for "domination," and the article gets only more muddled from there.…
 
Should our faith influence how we think, move, have our being, and vote? Should Christians be politically motivated and seek to make changes in the world around them according to biblical principles? Or should we simply live out our faith quietly and privately before those around us? In this rebroadcast from early 2021, Gary discusses an interchang…
 
Gary discusses a recent appearance by Ray Comfort on the Dr. Phil Show. Ray decries the practice of "microchipping" people and how unethical and irresponsible it is (which it is) and how it "might" fulfill Bible prophecy and Revelation 13 (which it doesn't). Christians must stop looking for prophetic signs in every modern technology and start readi…
 
Gary relates the early days of American Vision and how much it took to get a book published. Christians should take advantage of modern technology to teach and proclaim the Gospel. Just as early Christians benefitted from the roads created by the Roman Empire, so we benefit from electronic and networking advances today. This excerpt is from the Bur…
 
Gary discusses the history and work of Joel Belz and WORLD Magazine. A very high-quality, bi-weekly, full-color publication, WORLD Magazine is something you want to read and have in your house. Getting good information can be difficult in today's "always on" media-saturated information blitz, but WORLD makes it fun and easy to keep up on things and…
 
Gary discusses the consolidation of information and the recognition that we are in a war of ideas and worldviews. Christians often decide not to get involved, but must live with the consequences anyway. Voting isn't a long-term solution, but ignoring it isn't the right response either. It takes work: Get informed, vote, and get to work. Get informe…
 
Gary discusses the providential history of his life after high school and college and how he met and worked with Greg Bahnsen, David Chilton, Ken Gentry, and many others. This excerpt is from the Burros of Berea podcast. Listen to the full interview here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/episode-77-testimonies-gary-demar-for-god-and-country/id…
 
Gary answers a listener question about 2 Peter 3 and the fire language. Will the physical earth and heavens be destroyed in a universal conflagration, or is something else being communicated here? Will God destroy his creation in order to make another one, or will He redeem the existing one? We must read 2 Peter 3 in the context of Peter's first le…
 
The Geneva Bible is a Bible of firsts: it was the first complete English translation of the entire Bible, it was the first to include chapter and verse divisions, it was the first to add explanatory study notes throughout, and so much more. The Geneva Bible was also the Bible that helped build America. The story of the Geneva Bible is a fascinating…
 
Two movies are discussed on today's episode, one recent and one from more than a decade ago. Bros and Brokeback Mountain are separated by 16 years but both were agenda-driven propaganda pieces for the homosexual lifestyle. Bros was a spectacular box-office failure for several reasons, and speaks volumes about public support for the gay ideology. Re…
 
Gary discusses the film, The Omega Man, with Charlton Heston. Based on the book I Am Legend (with a 2007 Will Smith remake as well), the film is very prophetic considering modern climate armageddonists claiming that the "end is near" thanks to our continuing use of fossil fuels. Read Eric Peters' articles here: https://www.ericpetersautos.com/…
 
Gary discusses a news story about the governor of New York claiming that the Bible supports abortion. Since most of her supporters have little to no real knowledge about what (or what is not) in the Bible, claims like this often go unchallenged and a whole generation of people adopt a falsehood as truth. This is nothing new. Authority figures have …
 
The defeat of evil and of demonic powers is associated with Halloween. For this reason, Martin Luther posted his 95 challenges to the wicked practices of the Church to the bulletin board on the door of the Wittenberg chapel on Halloween. He picked his day with care, and ever since Halloween has also been Reformation Day. The power of Satan has been…
 
Gary discusses another new book release claiming to help readers understand Matthew 24. This time it's written by Michael Youssef. Dr. Youssef claims that the modern world is getting close to being in the "end times" and that the "time is near." This is the very same language used by the Apostle John in the book of Revelation and both authors can't…
 
Part Two of Gary's discussion of a new book by David Jeremiah and the publishing history of (failed) prophecy books. Gary relates a conversation he had with an individual that believed Hal Lindsey's book, The Road to Holocaust, was an accurate representation of what the Bible teaches about the history of the Jewish people. Dispensationalism teaches…
 
Gary discusses David Jeremiah's new book, which is essentially repeating the same message about being "near to the end." He also begins talking about another book written in 1989 after the failed prophecies of a prior book by Hal Lindsey. The discussion ran long so we cut decided to break this one into two parts.…
 
A new book by Eric Metaxas makes the point that the social and political climate in America today resembles early 20th century Germany. Pastors were not unified and preaching against the concerning actions by the post WWI German government which ultimately led to the rise of Hitler and the Nazi party. Modern Christians are being taught much the sam…
 
A recent book and focus on "Christian Nationalism" is the topic of today's podcast. Gary discusses what it means to be a patriot and a Christian, and while the two are not mutually exclusive, they are also not the same thing. We can't rely on America's Christian past and heritage to save us. We must continually move forward, taking the Gospel into …
 
Failed prophecies take a toll on those who believe them. For the last 100 years or so, Christians have been told by popular writers, speakers, and pastors that the rapture is near. While most can take it with a grain of salt, some get very bound up by fear of the "impending" event that never actually happens. These poor folks suffer from gnawing an…
 
The devastation caused by Hurricane Ian is bringing out the climate-change eschatological crazies. Claiming that the damage caused by Ian is both deserved and endemic of burning fossil fuels, these climate change end-times "prophets" sound just like religious end-times authors who claim every world event is somehow a fulfillment of Bible prophecy. …
 
Gary responds to an article about political commentator Joe Scarborough calling the "pro-life" movement a "heresy." Pointing out that Jesus never mentions the word in the New Testament, Scarborough believes Jesus has no opinion on the subject of abortion. But if Jesus is God (and He is), He most certainly has an opinion on abortion, as well as many…
 
Gary discusses the historical conditions and motivations behind an important book written in the 19th century, The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. The political climate in 1864 was not much different from our own in 2022. The country was deeply divided and truth and history were both being questioned. Th…
 
Christian futurists and atheists will often use the same mistaken arguments when dealing with Jesus' words in the Olivet Discourse. Gary discusses several claims in a recent book by an author who claims to be an atheist because of failed prophecies about the "end times." While his claims are nothing new, he does quote from and interact with Gary's …
 
Gary discusses art and worldview with Pastor Doug Giles. Doug has been working on several series of art to help change Christians' perception of biblical persons and events. How we think about the Bible and the men and women mentioned are often informed and influenced by false visual representations in popular paintings and other works of art. Chec…
 
Gary concludes his interview with Chris Arnzen about abortion, racism, transgenderism, and so much more. The anti-Christian worldview is self-contradictory, and Christians simply need to point this out. The cracks in the foundations of unbelieving thought are growing larger and deeper, and non-Christians are getting more and more irrational in thei…
 
Gary discusses several recent books and articles based on the topic of Christian Nationalism. These authors are claiming that some Christians are trying to align Christianity and politics and change the country by taking forceful dominion. This is far from the reality and doesn't match up with the biblical truth on the relationship between Church a…
 
In 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul speaks about the "man of lawlessness" (or "man of sin" in some older translations). There has been all sorts of speculation by interpreters about who or what this might be, and on today's episode Gary discusses this section of Scripture—as well as the practical implications—with Pastor Joel Webbon.…
 
Gary discusses a newspaper article about old movies sent in from a listener. Gary's interest in movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood goes deep and this article rekindled his passion and sparked this episode. The classic films are not only fun (and usually clean) entertainment, they can (and should) be used to teach the Christian worldview. Get G…
 
Gary continues his discussion with Pastor Joel Webbon about eschatology. Beliefs matter and influence the decisions people make. The cultural failures we see all around us are the result of Christians not being involved. Worldviews matter, and especially our view of what the future holds.
 
Gary is interviewed by Pastor Joel Webbon about biblical eschatology. The church has historically not dealt with the topic in a systematic way, and many interpretations of Revelation 20 have resulted. We need to work from inside the Bible and allow Scripture to form our definitions and expectations.
 
Authority is a fact of God's created world and order. Christians and churches were originally very instrumental in the culture and society, but we have steadily given that role and authority over to the state. Because of this, the church has nearly no voice in modern culture. Taking it back requires strategy and a long-term outlook.…
 
In this first part of his interview with Dr. Steve Hotze, Gary discusses his book, God and Government, and the current political situation in America and around the world. Join Gary and Dr. Hotze at the upcoming Christian Patriots Rally in Houston on Sept 17, 2022. Click here for more information.
 
President Biden recently announced that he was going to "spend" $500 billion to help the student debt crisis. This is nothing more than the next phase of the Democrats' disastrous economic policy in an attempt to buy votes in future elections. It's all a sham, and only further devalues the dollars currently in our wallets as well as every future do…
 
Just because someone teaches for a Christian university does not mean that they are orthodox. A recent article by a professor from a Christian college in California is a perfect example of this. Gary discusses this article and the author's claims about the Bible being "neutral" on abortion.
 
Gary responds to a critic about his demand for using modern academic works to interpret the prophetic passages in the Bible. While there is nothing wrong with appealing to new scholarship, the fact remains that every new book that claims to find "new" evidence is nothing more than a restatement of what has been claimed before. There is nothing new …
 
Gary discusses an article that appeared recently called "By the Sweat of Our Brow." One of the important concepts brought up by the article and analyzed in depth by another podcast (The Theology Pugcast) is the need for mediating institutions in a culture. What are mediating institutions? Listen to find out... Read the article here: By the Sweat of…
 
Gary answers a listener question about the tension between God's kingdom and man's kingdom. The two always seem to be at odds, but abandoning or ignoring the earthly authorities because of their persecution isn't the answer either. The tension is real and the work can be difficult and frustrating, but the Gospel is the solution.…
 
Gary interviews author and speaker Bill Federer on today's episode. Bill has written nearly two dozen books on America's Christian history and has documented all of it with original source material. He travels all around the country giving talks and is booked nearly every week. More information can be found on Bill's website here.…
 
The announcement was recently made that the IRS would be adding 87,000 agents to its tax army. Gary reveals little knows information from the 1970s proving that the IRS has a long history of using its power to push social agendas, including education. Read this article about R.J. Rushdoony's testimony against the Texas public schools.…
 
Three black elites have recently appealed to the Bible (sort of) to support their support of on-demand abortions. Al Sharpton, Whoppi Goldberg, and Stacey Abrams have all shown their biblical ignorance with public comments, yet undiscerning voters eat it up. Gary points out the hypocrisy on today's episode, based on his recent article.…
 
Gary interviews Kirk Cameron briefly about the influence of Marshall Foster and the application of the biblical worldview to all of life. Our view of history matters and affects how we live in the present. Christians must know their biblical history, as well as the history of the church and Christians throughout the last 2000 years.…
