We need to take a break from taking a break so here are a few comments on different things happening in the world today
#1. The Indestructable Jew by Max L. Dimont
When someone sets out to write a history of a nation, it is best if they would stick to the actual history. The author above tries to write a history of the Jewish people but right at the beginning he throws in evolutionary timetables. These timetables are not part of Jewish history and they do not belong in the book. Their inclusion only means that we are told that the author is biased and not writing honestly or objectively.
It destroys the content and purpose of the book and this includes when the author says Abraham started the Jewish faith and introduced monotheism to the world. it is not even close to truth as the presence of Melchizedek tells us that monotheism existed prior to Abraham. We have come to the conclusion that most secular scholars, archaeologists and other writers cannot truthfully represent Jewish and Christian history let alone the details of their beliefs. Whenever we pick up a book on jewish and Christian themes written by an unbeliever, we find the same thing, no objectivity, no honesty, misrepresentation of the facts and a clear misunderstanding of religious writings.
#2. Patterns Of Evidence
They are at it again, producing another film on biblical history
Scholars have different ideas of whether Moses existed, and even among those that think he did… where the biblical events actually took place. I just returned from a trip to Jordan where we filmed some reenactments for our new film series. I’m eager to share more with you.
We have begun work now to produce a series of one-hour episodes that investigate the route of the Exodus journey, including the sea crossing and the encounter with God at Mount Sinai. It will explore questions such as why is the Exodus important, are miracles possible, what are the different views on the Exodus route, and is there a pattern of evidence for these events that matches the Bible’s account?
This is taken from their newsletter and while we enjoyed their last film we wonder why the producers feel the need to rehash old ground concerning the Exodus? There has been no real new evidence discovered that justifies the retracing the steps of other scholars who have covered this area of study for decades now. If the producers are not going to stick to the restrictions presented in the Bible or the time scale, which was one of the mistakes made by Bob Cornuke and others have made, then nothing new is going to be learned and this venture simply becomes an excuse to make money.
Sometimes religious people are in too much of a hurry to provide evidence for their faith and they label items as proof when there is no possible way to tie those items to the biblical record. Then when they use unbelieving scholars to help make their case we wonder how much of God is in the works? With that said, we are interested in seeing the final product.
Sorry but we cannot agree with the actions of those, or if there are any, professors who want to force Christian colleges to teach and accept sinful activities. Their agenda is misguided and based upon the misunderstanding of a few verses while ignoring many other ones which help clarify what Jesus taught.Love does not include sin in the church and we are not loving our fellow believer as ourselves when we open the church or institutional doors and allow sin into the congregation’s midst.
This is more of the same. You can say it is UnChristlike but then those making that declaration probably do not know Christ and use restricted verses to make their case. They look at, Jesus was a friend to sinners and ate with them,and draw their conclusions yet fail to see that Jesus NEVER accepted their sins nor included them in the church.
Since God did not make any alterations to the institution of marriage, man has no right to edited it and include those alternatives God has left out.People seem to forget that it was God who created marriage not man and it is up to man to obey God’s limits and rules not erase them so one can do what they want.Then fighting transgenderism is not wrong. it is helping those who are deceived, misguided and misinformed to find the truth that there was no mistake made at birth.
There was no conspiracy between the doctors and parents to alter a baby’s birth gender so the feelings one has that they belong to a different gender are ideas coming from evil to destroy the person, not help them be who they are to be.When people leave the truth out of these issues that is when they become confused and let evil have its way.
Who died and left Bill Nye and other scientists in charge of families and parents? Sorry but Mr. Nye has gone too far in his agenda to force his views on others. He forgets that everyone has the right to freely choose how many children they will have. Science and Mr. Nye were not given that responsibility. Science and scientists are not the final authority on any topic nor are they the go to people when others have questions, especially when it comes to family size.
Some people,like Mr. Nye, need to learn to mind their own business and remove the beams from their own eyes before laying down rules for others.
