December 2011 – Confessions of a Preacher

By Dr. David M. Berman www.smellthetruth.com A “Preacher”…the term alone makes me shake with fear. When I think of the implications of being a man who is called a preacher, and charged with such a sacred responsibility, I tremble. On November 2 of 1991 I was ordained into the ministry. I went on from that time to establish many music teams, and to plant two churches (One assisting another Pastor, and one I planted by myself). Since that time I have won almost 1000 people to Christ that I know of and I have been on hundreds of radio stations, […]

November 2011 – Masada; My Recent Trip To Israel

By Dr. David M. Berman www.smellthetruth.com As a person who has studied history, political world-view, world religions, and most importantly the bible, I found my recent trip to Israel to be quite moving.  Perhaps it is acceptable to say that I have a perspective that is different than most. I was raised in a conservative Jewish family, went to Hebrew School, and Synagogue, and had my Bar Mitzvah at an orthodox Synagogue with an orthodox Rabbi.  My early life was one filled with difficulty since I most often had to fight people who persecuted me because I am Jewish. I […]

October 2011 – The Theology of Economics

By Dr. David M. Berman www.smellthetruth.com Just what is the position of scripture concerning economics? Does the bible teach Marxist, socialist economic principles? Is there a mandate for the state to feed the poor? We hear a lot about compassion being defined as the government “helping” people. What is the theology of economics? Let us first examine the issue from an emotional perspective. For those whose main motivation is emotion, it is not hard to understand why they would feel that the government should “do something” whenever there is a crisis. Those who are emotional tend to want two things. […]

September 2011 – The New god, Same As The Old god

By Dr. David M. Berman Ecclesiastes 1:9 “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” This passage makes it clear that in general humans are as humans were; humans shall always be until the end, basically the same. Since the fall of man there has been sin, famines, wars, false teachers, false prophets, false gods, idolatry, and on and on. Having said that I want to point out that in recent times (say over the last 20 […]

July 2011 – Would The Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up?

By Dr. David M. Berman It seems pretty clear that the Media is anointing Mitt Romney the front runner in the GOP primary race even though he did quite poorly last time when compared to all the money he spent. Romney has been touted as a master business leader who has the experience to get us out of the fiscal mess we are in. Romney himself likes to speak about what a masterful Governor of Massachusetts he was, and how he saved the Olympics from fiscal ruin, and corruption. Oh my, Mitt thinks quite the hero of himself. As a […]

May 2011 – Obama Bin Lyin – SPECIAL EDITION

By Dr. David M. Berman I have waited a few days to write about the killing of Osama Bin Laden. I wanted to let the dust settle a bit and see what the facts were. First let me say this; everyone knows what I think about President Obama. He is the worst president in our history, and I believe him to be a Marxist enemy of the Constitution. I will however give credit where it is due. On killing the terrorist, I commend the President. Unfortunately, it has not taken much time after doing the right thing for him to […]

May 2011 – The Dependent Class

By Dr. David M. Berman What does it mean to be an American? It seems that would be an excellent question to ask ourselves since there seems to be quite a debate as to the answer. Some continue to exalt us as a great “Democracy” (we are a Republic). Others say America is simply a member of the “World Community” (we are a sovereign nation). Still others say America is simply a place that has come about by oppression and domination. I find it both sad and interesting when I listen to the leftist elite talk about this nation. It […]

April 2011 – Libya Shows Barack Obama’s Allegiance

By Dr. David M. Berman I was searching the Constitution today and could not find the place where it says “The president must seek United Nations approval before military action.” Now I know I am not a Constitutional scholar in the order of Barack Obama. After all he taught “Constitutional Law.” I mean who am I to say that a man of his magnificent stature would not know better than I what the requirements for going to war are? I could, however, take a stab at reading that incredibly long and complicated document called the Constitution to see just what […]

March 2011 – Hyper Inflation???

By Dr. David M. Berman For many years I have been warning through preaching, speaking engagements, and writing of the impending inflation problem. The government’s appetite for spending and power grabbing is unending. As I wrote in my book “Wake Up And Smell The Truth,” the only way for government to grab more power is for it to be inefficient since it can’t grab power by performance.  Government looks to create a need and then insert itself in the “solution” only to end up making the problems its creates worse. It then reasons that the only way to solve the […]

February 2011 – The Roman Catholic Church

             By Dr. David M. Berman When Bible Christians write about the Catholic Church there is often a sense of anger in their words. I have read many articles that contained comments that seemed to me to simply be rants against Catholics. I assume that the authors of these articles have a reason for writing however I am often left wondering what that reason is. Are they trying to get Catholics to see what the Bible says, or are they simply ranting? I think it best to simply sate the facts. In this article I […]
