If God is real and Christianity is true, then they should conform to objective logic and reason. That is the premise of the Faith By Reason blog, which has been systematically examining Christian Philosophy since 2010. The Faith By Reason podcast is an extension of the blog, providing additional exposition and analysis (as well as my snide sense of humor). Nothing is taken for granted, no topic is too "sacred" to examine, and no question is off limits. Get ready for an adventure!
Revelation Unveiled Ep 32: Seven Trumpets Intro
The traditional view of the 7 Trumpets of Revelation 8 and 9 is that they are continuing judgments of God. However, the concluding Trumpet makes it clear that these events are intended to clear the path to "the Kingdoms of the world becoming the Kingdoms of Christ"! The purpose of the 7 trumpets is to "close escrow" on Jesus' property by bringing down the strongholds of satanic evil which currently dominates Jesus's legal earthly property. The model for this is the conquest of the Promised Land in the Book of Joshua!
We discuss all this and more in this week's episode!

Revelation Unveiled Ep 31 : Who are The 144,000 and what is the Seal of God?
Revelation Chapter 7 is the interlude before the devastating events of the 7 Trumpets. During this time the famed 144,000 "witnesses" from the 12 Tribes of Israel are given a seal by God to protect them. Who are the 144,00? Are they ethnic Jews? Are they other types of believers? Are they the Jehovah's Witnesses (no!).
Furthermore, what is their purpose? Are they evangelists? Do they have some other mission? We'll discuss it all in those week's episode.

Revelation Unveiled Ep 30: The Story of Evil
We know that the Bible is God's story, but what about the story of the enemies of God? What is their perspective on the world and creation? what are their motivations for opposing the plan of God? Here is the history of the world through the perspective of spiritual evil - the story of evil!

Revelation Unveiled Ep. 29: Demonic Aliens and the Wrath of the Lamb
The 6th seal of Revelation chapter 6 is the culmination of Satan's False Apocolypse! This is where the forces of evil present themselves as mankind's supernatural (Alien???) saviors! Yes, I'm serious when I say "alien". Have you noticed that in the accounts of so-called alien encounters and abductions that the main message from these creatures is always some derivative that the Bible and Christianity are wrong, and man can evolve into a "god"!
Does it really make sense to believe that an immensely technologically advanced biological species would travel billions of light-years to earth - not to conquer or aid us, but just to give us the EXACT SAME lie as the serpent in the Garden of Eden???
These entities are not "aliens". They are demonic and they will bring about the greatest deception in history. They will convince the world that Satan's False Apocalypse is the fault of Jesus!! We'll talk about it in this week's episode.
Apocalypse NOT! The "wrath" of the lamb.

Revelation Unveiled Ep. 28: The Pale Rider and the Return of the Nephalim
The Rider on the Pale Horse is named appropriately named "Death", and he will kill a 4th of humanity (2 BILLION people!!). This is all a part of Satans plan to usher in his long-planned one-world government, by vastly reducing the population to a more manageable size. This will be done through military action, mass starvation, wide disease outbreaks, and...the beasts of the earth. But these are now cows, chickens, raccoons, and goats going crazy and attacking people. No, the "Beasts of the Earth" is a reference to the return of the demonic hybrids known as the Nephalim, who terrorized the planet during the days of Noah. We'll discuss this idea and much more in this week's episode

Revelation Unveiled Ep. 27: Red and Black Riders – Blood, Money, and Demons
The Red and Black Horsemen of Revelation chapter 6 are traditionally (and culturally) called "War" and "Famine" respectively. But when you look at the actual language, those descriptive names do not seem entirely accurate.
The Red Rider’s power is to cause men to kill one another, and while there may be an aspect of war, the word “kill” is “sphazo” in Greek, which means to slaughter or butcher – primarily for an animal sacrifice ritual. This may point to blood sacrifice which is often used to manifest demons and demonic energy.
And while I agree that the Black Rider represents famine, it will NOT be due to scarcity. The fact that the rider carries a balance in his hand (the then-contemporary symbol of commercial weights and measures) clearly indicates that this will be an economic crisis. Furthermore, with our entire world financial systems completely interdependent, controlled, and virtual (electronically based), currency manipulation would be stunningly easy to enact.
Why is this happening and how is it tied to Satan's False Apocalypse? We'll talk about it in this week's episode.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to all these podcasts. I originally started with the blog from the same person and was hesitant to try the podcasts. If you like this podcast you with like the blog. Though the blog is different in a good way so that is why I highly recommend that too.
Full of fallacies
Went looking for a good logical take on God, but found the following fallacies: strawman, ad hominem, false equivalencies, hasty generalizations, and straight up false statements. Would love to hear him debate someone who uses the facts, logic and reason because they would expose him.
