Does God tempt people? Is He the author of confusion? Why did God need to rest after creating the Universe if He is omnipotent? Join Eric as He discusses these and other questions about the reliability of the God of the Bible.
On Sunday morning a local Classic Country station focuses on Gospel and Christian music. Many of the songs played are call-in requests and are dedications for family members. One of today’s calls was from an older woman who requested this song for her son and grandson. You think she might have had something in mind? I do.
This video is from Let the Bible Speak. Speaker Brett Hickey presents an important topic dear to my heart. As Christians we are called to be holy. Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross. We cheapen His sacrifice by ignoring holiness.
Growing up, Holly Ordway was convinced God was little more than superstition, completely unsupported by evidence or reason. She later attained a PhD in literature, traveled the country as a competitive fencer, and became a college English …
Brother: After all the turmoil in the world and all the junk (sin) I see being embraced in our government, all I wanted to do last night was read my Bible for some peace of mind and comfort. This world is becoming a scary place or I am become more sensitive to the chaos surrounding me.
My Response: I expressed the same thought to (my wife, name redacted) 3 days ago. This world is so full of sin that the statement Paul makes in Romans that no one is righteous, no not one is so true. I then read her a story from the internet where a woman in Ohio sold her child for sex in order to get heroin. She would sometimes drug her daughter and then sell her so men could have their way with her so she could get money for heroin. Disgusting!
I often wonder why God allows this world to continue with stuff like this happening. Then I realize it is because He loves mankind so much he is willing to wait for one more person to embrace his Son, one more person to give up on themselves and others and give it all to Him. Just one more…
At times I want to curl up in a ball on my sofa and let the world go by but I know I have been put here for a purpose, to help others to know, love, serve and share Jesus Christ. I must influence where I can, love where I can and help others where I can, all in an attempt to bring people out of darkness and into the light and Kingdom of Christ!
A story from LiveScience reports a portion of the book of Mark has been found as part of a mummy mask. The papyrus had been used to record the book of Mark but was later re-used as part of the mask. LiveScience reports:
A text that may be the oldest copy of a gospel known to exist — a fragment of the Gospel of Mark that was written during the first century, before the year 90 — is set to be published.
At present, the oldest surviving copies of the gospel texts date to the second century (the years 101 to 200).
This first-century gospel fragment was written on a sheet of papyrus that was later reused to create a mask that was worn by a mummy. Although the mummies of Egyptian pharaohs wore masks made of gold, ordinary people had to settle for masks made out of papyrus (or linen), paint and glue. Given how expensive papyrus was, people often had to reuse sheets that already had writing on them.
The discovery of this copy of Mark adds further evidence of the validity of the Bible.
How did new biochemical pathways, which involve multiple enzymes working together in sequence, originate? (This video from Creation.com simply explains the concept of a short biochemical pathway.) Every pathway and nano-machine requires multiple protein/enzyme components to work. How did lucky accidents create even one of the components, let alone 10 or 20 or 30 at the same time, often in a necessary programmed sequence.
Evolutionary biochemist Franklin Harold wrote, “we must concede that there are presently no detailed Darwinian accounts of the evolution of any biochemical or cellular system, only a variety of wishful speculations.”
