For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who carried Jesus’s cross?

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

Jesus carried his own cross

“They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, [a]bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.” (John 19:17)

Simon the Cyrenian carried Jesus’s cross.

“As they were coming out, they found a man of Cyrene named Simon, whom they pressed into service to bear His cross.” (Matthew 27:32)

 They *pressed into service a passer-by coming from the country, Simon of Cyrene (the father of Alexander and Rufus), to bear His cross.” (Mark 15:21)

When they led Him away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, coming in from the country, and placed on him the cross to carry behind Jesus.” (Luke 23:26)

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

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

What do you do when a discussion about abortion and someone say, “Men can’t tell women what to do with their bodies!”

I saw this from Sye Ten Bruggencate.  This is good:

Sye wrote “When the left’s insanity demolishes one of their favourite arguments.”

That’s a Presuppositional apologist in action!

Have you ever seen Monster’s Inc?  If so do you remember this scene?

This was the scene towards the end of the movie in which the character Henry Waternoose, the CEO for “Monster’s Inc.,” a company that sells electric power was about to be arrested who said he’s willing to “kidnap a thousand children before I let this company die.”

Of course a company and its leader willing to kidnap a thousand children for the sake of its company survival is immoral.  Disney Pixar who made this film knows that and the audiences does so too.

I can’t help but to think of the parallel that shows just how different we treat Planned Parenthood, America’s largest company committing abortionists.

So what’s the difference between Monster’s Inc and Planned Parenthood?

I didn’t get to post this earlier as this weekend non-fiction review since our church was going all out for VBS but here it is…

T.J. Stiles. Custer’s Trials: A Life on the Frontier of a New America.  New York, NY: Knopf, October 27th 2015. 608 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This book is a biography on the legendary George Armstrong Custer.  The book also was the recipient of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for History.  For the general readers it might be good to know that the book is more on the personality of Custer than a book solely on military operational history of Custer’s campaign.  So it is quite readable and makes for a fascinating read.

It’s Sunday Morning.  I know sometimes ministry is not easy.  So here’s another little motivation from the Word of God for preachers before you enter your pulpit and teachers before you go in to instruct your class.

1 Timothy 2:5-7 states:

For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time. 7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Here’s a question for mediation based upon the passage:
