Noted Christian authors to explain Syria and other events at Prophecy Conference

What does the war in Syria have to do with America and Bible prophecy?

Bible scholars and authors will give some detailed accounts of what the Bible teaches about end times during the The Mid-America Prophecy Conference, which runs from Thursday to Saturday here. The annual event is presented by Bible Prophecy as Written Ministries and host Phillip Goodman.

President Donald Trump ordered the bombing of a Syrian airfield after poison gas was used on Syrian civilians, with the Syrian government apparently at blame.

We have no other agenda from our Lord except to live and walk according to the Word that we teach.”
