I imagine for many this is an anxious time for Americans. You wake up, scroll your Facebook and you see one bad thing after another. Along with the rest of the world there’s concern for unemployment, or stable income while also concern for the health of others. Added to this is the fact that for most Americans our dominating issue right now isn’t Corona Virus, its politics and race relations. I’m sure many of us have been extremely uncomfortable to see people start taking extreme views and position. The isolation doesn’t help when we can’t see people face to face; people isolated are more suspicious and question the intent of others more than if they regularly interact with people personally. Added to this is the feeling that we can’t do much while quarantine. But we are not altogether helpless. Below are ideas of how to love your neighbors in 2020 that I have seen others do.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Can God be found through reason alone?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Yes.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)

No.

“‘Can you discover the depths of God? Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?’” (Job 11:7)

Quick update to yesterday’s : The authorities have let go of others but the four elders/pastors detained from this persecuted church have been punished and sent to jail for two weeks.  Updates will probably be delayed because of security concern.  This post is timely and relevant, as it is about what the Bible teaches about persecution and believers.

Just received word that one of the churches I have taught overseas at this moment right now have all their members and elders/pastors detained and interrogated by authorities. I want to ask if you can pray for these persecuted Christians. This is very heavy for me to hear.

Someone in a social media group said this:

Please CONTRIBUTE TO A LIST here of “conversation starter comments or questions” for those of us who enjoy spiritually fruitful and engaging conversations with non-believers and/or nominal-believers (those who would identify as christian), but often struggle to get such conversations started due to being introverted and/or somewhat socially awkward.

Here’s my answer, which is presented below:

Eli Ayala of Revealed Apologetics ministry recently interviewed Dr. Vern Poythress of Westminster Theological Seminary on the topic of how the Trinity impacts and relates to everything else In the Christian life.

Dr. Poythress is one of those amazing scholars who are inter-disciplinary.  He has a Bachelor degree in mathematics from California Institute of Technology, a Ph.D. in mathematics from Harvard University (1970), a Master of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary, a Th.M in apologetics also from Westminster in 1974.  He’s also have a M.Litt. in New Testament from University of Cambridge (1977) and a Th.D. in New Testament from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Are those who obey the law cursed?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Those who follow the law are cursed.

For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them.”” (Galatians 3:10)

Those who do not follow the law are cursed.

“‘Cursed is he who does not confirm the words of this law by doing them.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’” (Deuteronomy 27:26)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)
