Those ‘a-ha’ Moments
I am not traveling yet and have some time so I thought I would talk about one of those 'a-ha' moments Enns is trying to collect. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/peterenns/2014/06/aha-moments-biblical-scholars-tell-their-stories-2-john-byron/ I do not know how these scholars read the Bible at those times nor do I know in which language they read it in but for arguments sake, … Continue reading Those ‘a-ha’ Moments
Much To Talk About- 48
#1. Time off-- I will be taking a few days off as I have to go out of town for personal reasons. I need the break anyways. #2. The Lawsuit, The Drama-- http://jamestabor.com/2014/06/22/the-jacobovici-v-zias-lawsuit-why-it-has-nothing-to-do-with-freedom-of-speech/ Joe is desperate to cast things that way so he can appear the victim rather than the perpetrator–of slander and defamation–which he … Continue reading Much To Talk About- 48
Time to take a break from the heavy topics and see what is happening around the world in archaeology. Archaeology is one field which secularists use to construct their historical and literary context. As we shall see it is a field vulnerable to speculation, manipulation and eisegesis. Much can be read into the evidence because … Continue reading Archaeology, etc.
Is There Such A Thing Called Liberal Christians?
That is what some people call themselves when they do not or cannot believe what the Bible says and pursue alternatives to the biblical record. For me I do not go for the labels 'liberal' or 'conservative' because I side with God. You are either a believer or you are not. God wrote the Bible, … Continue reading Is There Such A Thing Called Liberal Christians?
Much To Talk ABout- 47
#1. Now It Is Hell's Turn-- http://www.patheos.com/blogs/formerlyfundie/letting-go-of-hell/ Nope– not at all, and today I’ll explain how it’s possible to let go of hell without letting go of the Bible. First, it is creation, then the Flood, then anti-homosexual teachings and now we get people trying to change the biblical teaching on hell. Two points #1. … Continue reading Much To Talk ABout- 47
Over the past week or so I have talked a lot about those people who have attacked CT and the supposedly anonymous ex-YP and his story. Most people involved in the uproar were very emotional and sought their own brand of justice and not God's. Some of these people may wonder why I did not … Continue reading Church Sins
I can't use the title 'Much To Talk About' because the number 4 does not equal the word 'much'. I do have much to say about these 4 topics though but I doubt I will have the time or space. #1. Temper Tantrum or Whining?-- http://www.patheos.com/blogs/formerlyfundie/be-not-deceived-theres-no-such-thing-as-a-christian-banker/ I know I have been dealing with FF at … Continue reading 4 Things
One thing about those who accept alternatives while rejecting the truth of the Bible, you can count on them to misapply scripture and teach the wrong lessons. The owner of Formerly Fundie does this continuously and his article on 'Enemy Love' is a prime example. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/formerlyfundie/whats-so-complicated-about-love-your-enemies/ #1. The offensiveness of enemy love. If one takes … Continue reading Enemy Love
When Does Forgiveness Begin?
I thought the uproar was over as little had been heard from CT or the upset bloggers, yet today 1 story and 1 blog came out asking 'how old women were when they were first approached sexually. http://www.christianpost.com/news/howoldwereyou-hashtag-prompted-by-former-youth-pastor-now-felons-post-on-sexual-misconduct-creates-viral-discussion-121648/ My question is, what is the real purpose behind this endeavor? Are they trying to cause trouble … Continue reading When Does Forgiveness Begin?
