    Rich, your short biography at the top of the page mentions you are an active apologist (defender of the faith). You must consider that mainstream liberal Americans despise two classes of people. One, are gun owners and second are the religious people trying to instill morality in an immoral society. The Constitution of the United States only has twenty seven amendments. If the government should repeal our second amendment (right to bear arms), then the ball is rolling to repeal our first amendment (freedom of religion), to silence every God believing man, woman and child.
    The vast number of gun owners are law abiding responsible citizens, just as the vast number of car owners are law abiding. However, there were 952 drunk driving deaths in 2012 in my home state of Illinois. And I have not heard on word about outlawing cars, or how much alcohol a person can own or drink. Drunk driving is no accident when the person keeps lifting another beer to his mouth. Point is the person getting behind the wheel or trigger makes his own decisions.
    We live in a fallen world where there well always be pain and suffering. God called us not to spend too much time trying to fix society, but to carry out the great commission of His saving grace.

      Leviticus 18:22 “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.”
      1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be ceceive; neither the sexually immoral, nir icolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10. nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
      You decide. Is it worth your eternal soul?

    You were instrumental to my pursuit of Christ.

    LARRY EVANS: All of Christ’s apostles died for their beliefs. Perhaps He would expect the same of us.

    Dear Rich,

    I was invited to give a talk on Singularity. After doing some research, I found most authors left out God. As a Christian, I am very impressed by you video talk and the article “The Singularity Movement: Why the Singularity Won’t Be Coming Any Time Soon by Rich Deem” . I would very much appreciate if you can send me you editable power point on your talk on The Singularity Movement. It will really help me to share God’s doing in a smart way.

    Thank you for your kindness.

    In Christ,
    Hui Ming

    I would like more info on your views on the right to bear arms & more info on Christians going through the Great Tribulation. I reside in Dyer Co. Tn. & have my Tn. Gun carry permit & am a Christian meaning I know I truly have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord & Savior & am Southern Baptist by my faith. We are currently studying the book of Revelation in Sunday School, where I’m the men’s S.S. teacher. Thank you for your time & may God bless. Sincerely, Bobby Joe Hooper II.

    I have read your conclusions on whether the bible teaches a fixed ,flat earth
    And you are wrong
    I can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt the earth is flat
    If you really desire the truth , I will tell you how you can know the earth is flat
    I did an experiment on Lake Sakakwea in North Dakota in Feb 2016
    The lake was frozen over and 15 inches thick , I drove my jeep from the access to a point
    on the lake and set the tripometer and drove 7 mile on the ice
    I set my camera 18 inches above the ice and took a picture of a fish house 7 miles away
    I could see the whole fish house
    So you go ahead and do the math and tell me howhat I was able to see the bottom of
    the fish house
    You guys that twist and turn the scriptures to fit your beliefs are appalling
    You need to let go of your pride and believe exactly what the Bible says

    Just read your commentary on John 3:5-7. Would like to point out John 3:22-26. Did Jesus baptize? John 3:22 and John 3 :26 state that He did.

    Hi Rich Deem,

    Bible believing Christian here, what is your take on Creationism, and Creation Ministries? Do you think Creationism is impossible? Because they have given us compelling evidence to deny evolution. I may sound crazy, but I am a former agnostic, turned Christian (again). I’d like to hear your view on this topic, thanks. God Bless 🙂
