IMARC is an Inter-Denominational Methodist page. It is here to provide a real world view of Biblical Christianity form a Methodist perspective. Our resources have grown since we first enter the world wide web in 1995. It has been a blessing to many since its founding. We would like to invite you to enjoy the materials that we have available for you. You can trust your soul with the information provided on this page. We are Methodist/Wesleyan Arminian, and we make no bones about it. We are here to serve the Bible Believing family of Wesley and particularly Christ our Lord.

Since prophecy seems to be so important, IMARC believes that our Lord will return bodily/physically when he decides so to do. We do not profess any particular view on prophecy except for the above. Yet there are writers who have written on IMARC who do express their views.

The Imminent Collapse of Arminianism

      What I am about to write will reveal my heart and my mind on the matter before us. We live in an age where there is plenty of latitudinarianism exists under the umbrella, which is called "Arminianism." Arminianism has always allowed a great deal of latitude, but has suffered when the boundaries of what is "Arminian" has not been defended and defined.

Does God Need a Facelift? Open Season on God

    Open Theology is not new. It is an old idea dressed in a new suit of clothes. Some of the core tenets promoted by Open Theists were expressed by Socinus in the 16th Century. Church history identifies him as a heretic whom Wesley opposed. Like Wesley, we must recognize that alterations to the doctrine of God, no matter how insignificant they may appear, can have profound ramifications upon the entire matrix of one's belief system. All credible theologians believe that the doctrine of God is the fountainhead from which all other truth flows.

James Leonard, "Why I'm an Arminian and Why Calvinism Is Dominating the Evangelical Book Market"

    Calvinists, on the other hand, think that God regenerates you in order that you can then believe. For them, regeneration makes it possible to believe. In effect, for Calvinists, a person has the new life of Christ prior to faith. I also think that union with Christ requires on-going faith, and not some past tense faith. That is to say, just because I believed in Christ back in 1967 does not guarantee that I will continue in faith. In fact, scripture repeatedly emphasizes that believers must persist in faith, and issues the direst consequences against those who make shipwreck of their faith.

The Four Blood Moons

    There are several preachers and groups who have been really pushing this concept. However, none comes close to Hagee's Magic. And so tonight, Sept. 17, 2015 is the last of the Four Blood Moons (FBM). Always accompanying these predictions seems to be an amazing amount of research. And then comes the books, videos, and mp3 recordings. Astonishingly pastors and lay people alike follow. Particularly when a personality like Hagee is leading the charge. There is no honest reason for Christians following this junk apolgetic. Is it the fear that by not embarcing this they will be accused of denying His return or what? But it is strange, that so many of these lies or predictions never come true and yet people continue to follow. And in recent times these prophets are even more dogmatic then ever. Interestingly enough, if they should come true, what good is it since people are now waiting to see if it will finally happen. If then this is used to call sinners to repentance, it seems to me to be counter productive. It will be to late for them to repent.
    Now with the exception of Harold Camping, most of those doing these predictions hold to some form of the Premillennial Dispensational (PD) point of view. This they insist is just what the Bible teaches. This view has become all but a fundamental doctrine to most Evangelicals, Charismatic’s, and Fundamentalists. To question this orthodoxy is almost a heresy. The whole series of “Left Behind” movies and books have their base in this theory of prophecy. With it comes sensationalism to a high degree. Van Impi has this sensationalism down pat too. All prophecy must be taken literally. That is fine with me, except, the Church victorious over the ages always held a live and let live attitude on prophecy. These guys do not. What they say you must believe or else.

@IMARC - Pastor D.L.Hartman

"To candid, reasonable men, I am not afraid to lay open what have been the inmost thoughts of my heart. I have thought, I am a creature of a day, passing through life, as an arrow through the air. I am a spirit come from God, and returning to God: just hovering over the great gulf; till a few moments hence, I am no more seen! I drop into an unchangeable eternity! I want to know one thing, the way to heaven: how to land safe on that happy shore. God himself has condescended to teach the way; for this very end he came from heaven. He has written it down in a book! Oh, give me that book! At any price, give me the book of God! I have it: here is knowledge enough for me. Let me be homo unius libri: "A man of one book." Here then I am far from the busy ways of men. I sit down alone: only God is here. In his presence I open, I read this book; for this end, to find the way to heaven. Is there a doubt concerning the meaning of what I read? Does anything appear dark or intricate? I lift up my heart to the Father of lights. Lord, is it not your word, "If any man lack wisdom, let him ask of God"? You "give liberally and upbraid not." You have said, "If any be willing to do my will, he shall know." I am willing to do: let me know your will. I then search after, and consider parallel passages to scripture, "comparing spiritual things with spiritual." I meditate thereon, with all the attention and earnestness of which my mind is capable. If any doubt still remains, I consult those who are experienced in the things of God; and then, the writings whereby, being dead, they speak. And what I thus learn, that I teach."
Rev. John Wesley

Brother Gao Zhisheng, We Love You and are Praying for You.
Gao, a friend of Christ and a defender of freedom for all men everywhere.
    IMARC is still watching for word about Brother Gao, and praying for his family and for a Free China. Read his wife's, Liu Xiaodong, appeal for help. (BeijingApril 21, 2013) The wife of Christian and longtime political dissident Zhao Changqing has issued an appeal for help after he was taken into police custody, apparently because he had called for government officials to disclose information about their financial assets.
IMARC Guest editorial

Recently I have respond to "The United Methodist Reporter," an online journal, and the article below is in response to the above named article. The editors evidently felt that my response was unnecessarily to critical. Therefore, they did not post it. I thought it somewhat strange how the United Methodists will stoop to anything to get their churches to grow. Immersion has become the panacea for modern churches, no matter the strip or color, "demonstrating" that somehow they scribe to Biblical Christianity. So what's in the water?
