Despite protestations by both Iran and some in the United States, the majority of Americans believe that the Middle East country is building their nuclear program for the sake of creating weapons. This is likely the case. However, where most Americans likely get the situation wrong is with the target. Most assume that Israel would be the victim of a nuclear Iran, but there is growing concern that the United States would actually be the recipient of a nuclear attack from Iran.
To their leaders, the United States is the “Big Satan”. Israel is the “Little Satan”. Their primary goal is not the destruction of Israel but rather the consolidation of power in the Muslim world with a major secondary goal of destroying the sinful western way of life represented most heavily by America. Destruction of Israel is something that they want, but it’s not their biggest challenge. If they can eliminate their foes in the Muslim world and prevent America from interfering, Iran believes that the destruction of Israel will be easy.
It isn’t in the ability to launch nuclear missiles that will make Iran such a threat. That is actually more challenging than most understand. What is easier is to utilize the open-door policy at the southern border of the United States to smuggle in portable nuclear weapons to be detonated in the country. It is a more likely scenario than trying to breach Israel’s defenses through missile attack and it is more difficult to smuggle into Israel than it is to smuggle into the United States.
In the video below, Gary Stearman and Yoram Ettinger discuss this scenario and the reasons why Americans should be more concerned about Iran than even the Israelis.

There are many types of codes in the Bible. One of the most controversial in discussion in recent years are the equidistant letter sequences that some claim demonstrate a divinity in the words as well as the structure of the Bible. Sir Isaac Newton believed in them. Today, millions believe that it’s real as well. This brings up two questions:
- Is the phenomenon something that can be duplicated in other books? In other words, is it really a divine code?
- If it is a code, what does it mean to us?
Rather than being informative or teaching about it, we’re asking for help. What is the reality of these Bible Codes?
For those who don’t know about them, the idea is that by skipping set numbers of characters in the Hebrew Bible, particularly in the Torah, certain messages can be found. For example, one of the most famous and simple ones shows that the first two books of the Bible have an equidistant letter sequence that spells the law, Torah, while the same skip pattern in books 4 and 5 work, only in reverse. Much like a menorah, the four books on either side of Leviticus point to it with an equidistant letter sequence spelling the name of God.
It’s an interesting and provocative occurrence, but is it coincidence? There are plenty of other examples and the scientific community is torn on whether it’s valid or not.
The first question is obvious – real or not. The second question, in our opinion, is simple as well, though more profound. If it really is a code, is it something that we’re supposed to decipher in an effort to read more about our Lord, or is it a sign of validation, a final proof of creation that God put in there for the sake of allowing the information to come out at the right time immediately before the end times.
Again, we want feedback on this one. The video below is old and definitely leans towards making the Bible Code a real phenomenon, but it’s still relevant. What do you think?

It’s a cliche. It’s something that is said about someone running for office or trying to garner popularity amongst an audience. When Pope Francis goes around and literally starts kissing babies, it makes headlines.
He is definitely not the Pope that people have been used to since the death of John Paul II. Francis is positioning himself as modern, progressive, and open minded – a Pope of the people. He is trying to reach more than the Catholic church. He’s going for the whole world. He’s even taking to social media.
According to NY Daily News:
He first posed for selfies with youngsters from Brazil who had carried a large cross into the square and then hopped from his vehicle when he spotted Polish kids clamoring for their own photos.

We normally try to avoid apologetics. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with it, really. It’s just that we believe that the knowledge of God and His Creation are part of all of us and trying to prove or justify it with arguments rather than embracing the faith of truth within us is not the right path for us. However, we sometimes succumb to the urge to help others find that reasoning within by dismissing the false teachings that often come with scientific explanations.
This particular video is pretty good. While we won’t call it great at what it’s trying to accomplish, namely pointing to things that happen in the world and in nature that point squarely towards an impossibility of evolution and randomness in the universe, we do appreciate much of what it said in it. Of particular interest is the hummingbird and the way that its body is strong evidence against the possibility of random chance forming this majestic creature. It doesn’t do what it does through pure evolution. Mutation to get to its current form is absurd. It’s an easy pointer towards creation.
The rest of the video is worth a watch as well, but when it starts talking about birds, take special note. Here’s the video:
