I am the primary teaching pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Bloomington, Illinois, where I have served since 1993. I received my B.A. in Biblical Studies from Columbia International University in Columbia, South Carolina, and I received my M.Div. from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. I am also a U.S. Navy veteran and a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion. And, by the way, my last name has a silent β€˜h’ and is pronounced β€˜troop.’

Hebrews 11:17-19 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18 of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,” 19 concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.

Funny...Now they ban...Tear gas ?? []
KeithThroop comments on Sep 12, 2020:
While I am not insensitive to the people who complained that some of the tear gas seeped into their businesses or dwellings, I can't imagine that would no be preferable to their business being burned down or the smoke from the fires set by the rioters seeping into their dwellings. As someone who has experienced tear gas (as I'm sure @timon_phocas has as well), I know it is unpleasant, but it certainly isn't as harmful as smoke inhalation or potentially dying in a fire.

For full disclosure, we put @Thaw on 10 day probation for advocating for violence in this comment.
KeithThroop comments on Sep 11, 2020:
I find the antisemitism of @Thaw to be morally repugnant and absolutely despicable, but my approach to him has been simply to ignore him, which seems to have been what most here have done. Our commitment to free speech certainly requires that he be allowed to share his ideas here, but I agree that incitement to violence crosses the line, and I think the probationary period was appropriate. If he can return and keep from such advocation of violence in the future, then there seems to be no reason to ban him. If he he persists in such advocation of violence, then banning may well become necessary at some point.

In addition to many of the great comments here, I would add that it certainly taught the U.S. that we needed to take much more seriously the War on Terror in which we had been engaged already for decades. The fact that most people didn't even realize this fact shows how unfocused and, perhaps, willfully blind we had previously been in our waging of this war.

Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize (again) []

I think the accomplishments listed in The American Thinker suffice: > The Norwegian noted that Trump played a key role in this development, the biggest platform for peace since Israel's entente with Egypt several decades ago, and what's more, other Arab states would likely follow suit. In fact, quite a few are. And the troublemakers among them, such as the Palestinian "state," are walking back their opposition to the accord, with peace breaking out all over. > > On merit alone, by any objective standard, Trump's act is a massive contribution to peace. > > And it's not just the Israel-UAE peacemaking, either. > > Fact is, the Trump umbrella of peace is multiplicative. Trump's rub-out of Qassem Soleimani, Iran's chief terrorist, has led to global terrorism waning. Trump's peace-brokering between longtime enemies Kosovo and Serbia snuffed out another smoldering ember of war in Europe. Trump's risky move to engage North Korea's psychopathic dictator one-on-one, breaking all foreign policy conventional wisdom — created even more peace or at least bought time for something steadier, too — the freak, after all, had been hurling rockets at Los Angeles before that. And for keeping the U.S out of all wars and bringing troops home during his term, Trump deserves credit there, too. > > Yes, that's a heady record of peacemaking, and the Nobel committee couldn't ignore it if it cared about its credibility.

KeithThroop comments on Sep 9, 2020:
The Lord Jesus graciously saved me when I was twenty years old and serving in the U.S. Navy. Although I had been going to church most of my life and wanted to know the Lord Jesus as my Savior, I believed that salvation was based upon my own efforts to live righteously and thus to prove my faith to God. This false belief was easy for me to accept, especially given several factors in my childhood. For example, I came from a broken home and experienced much isolation and loneliness. I just could not bring myself to believe that anyone could love me just as I was. This led me to frequent bouts with deep depression throughout my childhood and into my adult years and even to some doubts about the existence of God as well. However, through the witness of believers in my life, and through His Holy Word, the Lord opened my eyes to the truth that He loved me even though I did not and never could deserve it. He showed me that I could never earn His love and forgiveness, and that I didn't have to try. I praise God for His saving grace, by which He enabled me to trust in Him alone for salvation! Through his work in my heart, I came to understand that the Lord Jesus has done all that needs to be done for my salvation through His sinless life, atoning death, and resurrection from the dead. I experienced the truth of this passage: Ephesians 2:8-10 "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." The Bible teaches that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" and that "the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 3:23;6:23). When it speaks of the "wages of sin," it is speaking of what we deserve for having done wrong in the sight of God, but it also teaches us about the "gift" of eternal life which we do not deserve. Thus God offers us freely through Jesus Christ that which we cannot earn. He offers to do for us in Christ that which we cannot do for ourselves. That is my story in a nutshell. As you can probably see, He revealed Himself to me through the Bible. Although my doubts about God were never that serious, because the idea that there is no Creator never made sense to me, I did struggle with this sometimes. Now I can't imagine why, but I think it had to do with my past struggles with depression. All I can say is that He has changed my life for the better, despite the many difficulties I still face, and I have no regrets at all. I hope you will trust in the Lord Jesus to save you from your sins. He is willing to forgive you and give you eternal life if you ask Him. "If ...

If you have to explain your argument, You have already lost the argument.
KeithThroop comments on Sep 8, 2020:
Not necessarily. Perhaps you set out the argument and only then find out what you need to explain. I have been in this situation many times in, for example, theological debates. Someone wants to object to some theological position or other and states the objection, to which I then respond with an argument. Often only at this point does it become apparent that the person doesn't understand the matter at all, which then leads to my explaining the matter so that my argument will makes sense to him. Frequently the objection the person thought he had disappears with understanding the issue correctly for the first time. So, my stating an argument he didn't understand exposed his lack of understanding and provided a basis for further discussion. On the other hand, sometimes the person desires to remain in ignorant and refuses to listen at all. But that doesn't mean I lost the argument; it just means either that I can't understand what he is saying or he has no genuine desire to hear what I am saying. In either case the discussion is usually over.

Living here in the United States in what I have come to call "The Peoples' Republic of Illinois," due to its ever increasing Leftist government and policies, I took part in a widely announced and heavily attended "Open Illinois" protest in our state capital back in late May, when we were still in pretty heavy lockdown. Virtually no one at the protest wore masks or practiced social distancing, while the police stood off to the side and watched. No one was arrested or received any sort of citation so far as I know, and this was in one of our most liberal states. There was never a COVID-19 case linked to the protest, by the way. At any rate, just when I though we had in bad here in Illinois, I see this video and count my blessings. I have prayed for this poor woman and her family.
Finding life Purpose on a Train in Germany []
KeithThroop comments on Sep 3, 2020:
That article made me think back on my own search for meaning and purpose in life. For me it came with my conversion to Christianity at 20 years old. I have since found my purpose in seeking the glory of God in all that I do, seeking to live in a way that honors Him as my Creator and Savior. I have discovered in my study of the Bible that my purpose is to glorify God and that this is also what is ultimately the best for me. His glory and my good are not two separate ends, but, in His gracious plan, they are really one end. They are inextricably linked, so that, whatever brings Him the most glory is also the very best thing for me in the end, and whatever is the best for me in the end is also what brings Him the most glory. When I keep this in mind, I find that I lead a happy life and may find meaning and joy even in life's trials and tribulations. Note: I should add the important caveat that what is good or best for me is defined by Him and not be me.

KeithThroop comments on Sep 2, 2020:
President Trump always manages to get his point of view across despite their attempts to get him to talk about things on their terms.

KeithThroop comments on Sep 2, 2020:
Every time I see him out there making a fool of himself in his older years, I am actually angered toward the people around him who are so brazenly and selfishly using him for their own political ends -- including his own family apparently. I shouldn't be surprised at this, though, since this is what they have been doing with minority populations for decades. I suppose one could see this as Joe Biden getting a taste of his own medicine, since he has used so many people for so long himself, but it is still throughly cringeworthy.
Portland mayor plans to move after protests outside his home []

It is too bad he has shown more concern for the safety of the people living in his building than he has shown for the other residents of the city. I guess the (apparently) upper class people he associates with and who live in his building matter more to him.
The question of the day: The Universe is expanding... Into what?
KeithThroop comments on Sep 2, 2020:
A bigger universe? If that isn't right, then I have no idea. :)
So, what do you think about this story?
KeithThroop comments on Sep 2, 2020:
I do not believe that the Bible teaches against what we would call "mixed-race" marriages. In fact, the Bible teaches that all humanity comes from two people, Adam and Eve, which means that, despite the differences in people that have developed since that time, we are all really just one race, the human race. I don't see how anyone who takes the Bible seriously could deny this fact. There are some, however, who misapply the Old Testament prohibitions placed on Israel against marrying people from other nations. But the context of those prohibitions indicates that they were due to religious and cultural issues rather that racial issues. These prohibitions were designed to maintain religious purity and to avoid adopting the idolatry and cultural practices of the surrounding nations. This is why Israelites were actually allowed to marry people from these other nations if they first converted to Judaism. A prime example of this would have been Ruth. She was Moabite woman who converted to Judaism and who married Boaz, an Israelite man. In fact, both King David and Jesus were descended from her, and she is presented in the Bible as one of the greatest examples of faith in God in her day.
Time's up.

@tracycoyle I really wish I could disagree with your assessment, but I strikes me as spot on. So, I will just say that I really hope you are wrong. :)

That headline may as well read, "Trump May win election Night, But Joe Biden Will Win Days Later Due to Voter Fraud."
Suspect Gaige Grosskreutz Who Has a Record, Carried a Gun and Regrets Not Shooting Kyle Rittenhouse,...
KeithThroop comments on Sep 2, 2020:
The only reason(s) I can think of that Grosskreutz hasn't been charged is that the local prosecutor is either a Leftist or a coward, or perhaps both.
What awaits us in January? Only God knows. []
KeithThroop comments on Sep 2, 2020:
I'm praying that President Trump will be re-elected and resume his office on time and that all the fraudulent attempts of the Democrats to steal the election will fail miserably.
KeithThroop comments on Sep 2, 2020:
I'm not surprised. Most of he major news outlets have been keeping back anything good about the President and the things he has accomplished, so of course they are keeping back this information as well. So, again, I am not surprised, but I am thoroughly disgusted. In fact, just when I think I cannot possibly get more disgusted with the liberal media, they find a way to make it happen.
