I Would Not Go

It was once advertised that McDonald’s uses the most scientific thinking available and the optimum scientific cooking time to make their fries and other foods (I would not be surprised if other fast food franchises followed suit).
That is a distressing thought as most scientist are not chefs and there is no way they would know how to cook food correctly. If I owned a restaurant or look to cook food on my own, I would not and do not go to scientists to cook food correctly.
I go to people who are trained chefs or excellent cooks. They know more about cooking food than any scientist would.
The same goes for creation. I would not and do not go to a scientist, especially those who do not believe in God, to learn about our origins and how all things began. Scientists have no clue about our origins. I go to the one who did the actual creating to learn about where we came from, how it came about and why it was done.
Most scientists do not believe in God so their ideas are deception not fact. I would not go to a scientist for cooking, I certainly would not go to a scientist to understand the Bible and theology.

Scholars Lead the Way To Error

http://www.christianpost.com/news/bible-scholar-claims-apostle-paul-never-said-women-should-remain-silent-in-church-200297/

Scholars overthink issues, they twist scriptures and they do not understand what they are reading. because a woman is allowed to pray, they are allowed to prophecy does not mean that they are allowed to violate other scriptures that God has given in other books of the Bible.

The scholar further argues that 1 Corinthians 14:34 is not consistent with other parts of Paul’s letters to the Corinthians, including 1 Corinthians 11:5, which reads: “… Every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head.” Payne believes the verse could be an indication that women were allowed to preach.

He would be greatly mistaken as no passage in the Bible supports that conclusion. People are reading too much into different passages of scripture. They are importing their own views instead of honestly trying to extract what God wants them to know.

“This study demonstrates that scribe B was a careful textual critic who identifies 1 Cor 14.34–5, the only Bible passage silencing women in the church, as added text,” he is quoted as saying in his article. “Vaticanus provides early and credible judgement in what is widely regarded as the most important NT manuscript that vv. 34–5 were not in the body text Paul’s original letter, but are a later addition.

Really, what proof does he have for those statements? There is nothing that backs up those declarations either. It is pure speculation and a desire to ignore what God wants for his Church. These scholars are heavily influenced by modern culture and not the Spirit of God. They do not know the truth and lead too many unsuspecting people to faulty biblical thinking and practice. It is better to err on God’s side than take your chances by disobeying him.

 

It Is Going Too Far

Christians should not be following the world in these issues. They should be leading the way to exposing this sham

http://www.christianpost.com/news/girls-school-head-stops-calling-students-girls-fearful-of-offending-transgender-students-200437/

The head of one of the leading all-girls schools in London said that she will no longer be calling her students “girls,” in order to avoid potentially offending pupils who are questioning their gender.

“I try not to say ‘girls,’ [but] when you have been teaching for 20 years it is very hard not to say ‘girls,'” said Sally-Anne Huang, headmistress of the private James Allen’s Girls’ School in south London, according to The Sunday Times.

Offend the transgender. They need to learn the truth about their condition and that they are being deceived.

Chris McGovern, a former adviser to the Department for Education, said that “it has become an industry, people are making a career out of encouraging children to question gender at an age when they need to be left to be children. When teachers raise these issues children can become confused or unhappy and traumatized by it.”

This is true. It is shameful that these people take advantage of vulnerable children. This is an issue between the child and their parents, not between the child, their teachers or strangers. Teachers have over-stepped their boundaries in recent years and infringed upon parent rights. This needs to stop as well. God lays out people’s roles quite clearly in the Bible. Parents are to raise their children, they need to take the lead in these disturbing problems and steer their children to the truth about their identities. The unbelieving world does not have he answer in these issues.

 

More Theory Less Fact

More ideas on how the pyramids may have been built as well as how the Egyptians got the blocks to the site

Christians Are Called To Be Holy NOT Perfect

Far too many people think that upon conversion Christians are bestowed with perfection. We see this attitude reflected in the expectations of non-believers and believers in the church. These two groups expect Christians to be perfect all the time and that is just impossible. No one can be perfect while they live in a corrupted body in a corrupted environment on a corrupted planet. This is why God said ‘do not judge’. Judging others implies that we think we have obtained perfection while others have not. We cannot judge because we can never be perfect.

God called us to be holy and that is a status we can obtain. God has not asked us to do anything we cannot do thus it is important for the believer to obtain wisdom and understanding so that they can discern the difference between perfection and holiness and then strive for the latter. Obtaining wisdom and understanding are vital to a healthy Christian life and will help remove the stress and pressure upon all believers– especially the pastoral staff

Jewish Ritual Discovery

We got the news through a newsletter we receive:

ROMAN ERA STONE CONTAINER FACTORY UNCOVERED

A stone container factory dated 2,000 years ago has been excavated by archaeologists in northern Israel. Says the Israel Antiquities Authority: “This discovery provides fascinating evidence of ritual purity in the daily lives of Galilean Jews during the time of Jesus.”

According to the Jerusalem Post newspaper, construction workers building a sports center in the northern Israeli city of Reina uncovered a cave whose purpose was to provide raw material for and to fashion chalkstone vessels used in ancient Jewish households.

Archeologists directed by the Israel Antiquities Authority then discovered thousands of stone cores extricated from vessels formed by lathe in this cave. Besides that, chisel marks on the walls of the cave indicated the stone used to produce these vessels was quarried at this very site.
