What is interesting about the way political correctness works is that decisions are based on an abstract gut feeling, or emotional virtue, as opposed to solid, unwavering absolute truth. Absolute truth is panned as repressive, violent, and does more to create aggressors than to free victims.
With the world becoming much more aware of Islam, which is essentially a works-based religion, the idea of working for your salvation, or eternal life continues to be a hot topic of discussion.
The Old Testament, containing thirty-seven separate books incorporates eleven of these as chronological: Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Joshua, Judges, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, Ezra and Nehemiah. These books together cover a period of roughly 3600 years.
We are putting the final touches on our latest book, “Rome Rising.” The main question we address is whether or not the Roman Empire actually completely died out. We start with the Babylonian Empire and move forward, following Daniel 2 and 7, then segue into Revelation 13 and 17.
Daniel 2 is the perfect place to start because this chapter highlights Nebu-chadnezzar’s dream of the statue. Eventually, Daniel was called in to tell the king what the dream meant. The statue was divided into sections, each section represents a specific empire. The legs down to the feet (and toes) represent Rome, through its numerous changes.
It seems clear enough that, in numerous ways, Rome continued to exist in different forms even after historians tell us that it officially ended. A trip through parts of Scripture and secular history will provide the answer.
Stay tuned for more information on this book!
