This book is a study of the President of the Union and the President of the Confederacy during the last days before Lincoln was killed and the days afterwards.  The side by side account of both these Presidents was a fascinating angle of the book and one which I appreciated.  There were many moments that I thought the juxtaposition was quite fascinating.

Four Faculty Members of Dallas Theological Seminary got together to do two Podcasts to have a Biblical response on the topic of Same-Sex Sexuality.  Specifically they are responding to the arguments that some have tried to explain away the verses in the Bible that described Same-Sex Sexuality as a sin.

The four professors are Dr. Darrell Bock, Dr. Robert Chisholm, Dr. Joe Fantin, and Dr. Jay Smith who are from the Old and New Testament department of the Seminary.  I appreciate that these are scholars of the Bible giving their input on the text.  They examined the biblical passages often brought up on homosexuality.  The first video is on on material in the Old Testament while the second video is on the material in the New Testament.

Given how evil abortion is as an act of murder against the most helpless its time we don’t just talk about defunding Planned Parenthood but the legal banning of them from murdering.

This is one of the latest undercover video of their evil.  May God wake up the conscious of our nation against this injustice.

I’m moved to pray to see this evil end in the United States.

For today’s post we will tackle another question from the Skeptic Annotated Bible: Where does God dwell?

This one should be filed under the category of “Too Silly.”

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

God dwells in Zion.

Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion; Declare among the peoples His deeds.” (Psalm 9:11)

His tabernacle is in Salem; His dwelling place also is in Zion.” (Psalm 76:2)

Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, Dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain. So Jerusalem will be holy, And strangers will pass through it no more….And I will avenge their blood which I have not avenged, For the Lord dwells in Zion.” (Psalm 9:11)

God dwells in the heavens.

“To You I lift up my eyes, O You who are enthroned in the heavens!” (Psalm 123:1)

“Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few.” (Ecclesiastes 5:2)
(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

One of the comments in my previous post “” had a comment from “Javier” that tried to argue against the Trinity:

History and Archeology show that the Trinity comes from the false religion. You can find images and sculptures of trinitarian gods from Babylon and Egypt in museums and ancient churches. The Trinity had its origin and development by men in the councils of Nicaea (325 CE) and Constantinople (381 CE), not in the Bible.

Here’s my reply:

It seems to me that most of the objection I’ve heard against Presuppositional Apologetics is a misunderstanding of this method of apologetics.  Either it is that or there’s a deliberate misrepresentation.  But I believe once one finally understand Presuppositional Apologetics…well the picture captures it well.

In this post I want to deal with a blog post by someone that have posted against Presuppositional Apologetics.  I want to be even more narrow in my focus to point out how sometimes objections against Presuppositional Apologetics seems to be quite appropriately described as schizophrenic. To avoid distraction I’m not even going to deal with the misrepresentations of Presuppositionalism but I am going to look only at what the guy assumes and show how it is internally incoherent within his own words–let alone whether his critique truly refutes what Presuppositionalists really believe.
