    A student and advocate of much of what Walvoord teaches (although with a lay audience target) is David Jeremiah. Well I would also call him a student of Tim Lahaye as well as he illustrates in much of his prophecy teaching. I do not disagree with David Jeremiah in these matters and find he hits the nail right on the head.
    But then again I forgot most of what I learned in school of opposing eschatology systems. I am reading a book with Gentry's interpretation of Revelation for an alternative viewpoint, so perhaps I need to get back to reading.

    He is coming to Denver tomorrow and I have my tickets and will hear him preach! Yippee!!! Although not a Calvinist by my definition (but if Ron Rhodes is considered a Calvinist perhaps David Jeremiah is as well). From what I understood from his book God Loves You, he does not affirm Lordship Theology, nor a Reformed soteriology, but rather a Dallas Seminary soteriology which is a mix between Calvinism and Arminianism as it borrows from both systems of theology. Regardless of his few shortcoming a powerful preacher and author whom targets a lay audience and reaches them quite well.

    Some Calvinists find it an error to ever tell an unbeliever that God loves them, but this argument simply majors on the extremes of hyper Calvinism and not Biblical theology. Hence even Calvinist author Will Metzger disagrees! We need to have balance on emphasizing the Love of God, but also his holiness which is what I believe Jeremiah communicates in his book God Loves you.

    Read these two books for a balance between God's Love and God's Holiness

    God Loves You- David Jeremiah
    The Holiness of God- RC Sproul

    One of your shortcomings as a poster is your whomitis.

    You could have said :...he is a powerful preacher and an effective author who has popular appeal.

    You do not have a clue who he is a student of.

    I have more of a clue about him than you do Rev. You see I read his books.

    Your assumption, and that is what it is an assumption, that he is a student of LeHaye simply because he has similar positions implies:

    1. He does not have a mind of his own

    2. He has not done his own study

    3. He could not have reached his conclusions without LeHaye

    4. He just follows LeHaye blindly

    Further you do not know what I read or do not read nor do you know anything about me. In contrast to that you have exposed your lack of understanding about a great many issues to include the theology of Jeremiah.

    FWIW, did I waste my money when I bought this brand spanking new NKJV of The Jeremiah Study Bible ("Full-Size Print, 8,000+ Study Notes, Hundreds of Sidebars, 60+ Essential Articles, Teacher's Topical Index, Words of Christ in Red, Smartphone and Web Links, and More!")??

    I haven't opened it yet, so I'm wondering if I really just bought a clone of Tim LaHaye's Study Bible?

    The blurb on the box's spline says that the publisher--Worthy [of whom I've never even heard]--gives it a "Lifetime Guarantee"--whatever that means.

    On the outside bottom of the box, there's this quote from David Jeremiah:
    "My prayer is the God will use this Bible to help you fall in love with Scripture."

    Is that just a promo--something David Jeremiah seems to be pretty good at when it comes to the stuff that he wrote--that's interspersed though out his TV programs??

    One more question. The publisher has printed the following on the outside bottom cover:
    "The Jeremiah Study Bible presents the best of biblical insight along with clear, practical application to bring about authentic transformation in your life.
    "This deeply personal and comprehensive study Bible is packed with features specifically focused on helping you discover what Scripture means and, most importantly, what Scripture means for you."

    Is this a truly accurate claim, or is this merely an attention-getting blurb designed just to get unsuspecting people like me to pay almost $100 to purchase this study Bible??

    I'd appreciate reading your comments/observations on these questions before I open up this study Bible, much less having LifeWay print my name on the front cover.

    Don't buy into the such myths based on someones personal characterization.

    You paid almost one hundred dollars for a Bible translation?!

    Forget so-called "study-Bibles" --just get a good translation. (You can do better than a NKJV).

    Get Bible commentaries separate from a Bible translation.

    I didn't pay almost $100 for a mere NKJV Bible version. I already have a couple NKJV Bibles--most of which I seldom use--not because I'm a big NKJV fan (which I'm NOT!), but I did want to get another good study Bible to carry along with me to my SS class, my church's corporate worship services, our AWANA youth group, and the Life Group that meets every week.

    A good study Bible is a little bit more convenient for me to carry around when I'm at these venues compared to a couple sets of "Bible commentaries separate from a Bible translation." I've only got 2 hands--one of which is for my cane that I need to help me walk around ever since I've had my stroke.

    I'm interested in reading how you manage to carry around your "Bible commentaries separate from a Bible translation" when you attend your SS class, corporate worship services, etc.

    Being a student does not mean one cannot learn not has a mind of his own. I am a student does this make me brainless? Think man.

    And you have proven time and time again to be in need of a Paul Washer sermon.

    Also you continue to fail to understand Lordship theology as you demonstrate in your ongoing rejection.
