If you have followed this blog for sometime you might be familiar with brother Michael Coughlin since he often writes guest posts for us here when I am away overseas.  I appreciate his passion for the truth of God’s Word, him leading his family and his humor.

He is going to be sharing the Gospel for next year’s superbowl which is coming up in a few months.  The outreach will be from February 1st though Feb 4th, 2018.  It will take place at Minneapolis, Minnesota.

This country and world needs Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.  Even if you cannot physically join them there are still other ways you can be involved as Michael spelled out in the link.



I have a hard time with Steven Furtick.  He’s the preacher that is infamous for his “Hey Haters” wannabe rap or whatever it is.  It’s far from anything pastoral, check it out yourself:

Recently on his Twitter account he has the following image for his cover picture:

I want to look at this question more closely in light of Scripture.

This is the story of Flo Groberg, a US Army infantry officer who was a recipient of the Medal of Honor in 2015 for actions in Afghanistan in 2012.  There’s few Medal of Honor that has been awarded in the post-9/11 world and still fewer who are among the living that received it; Flo Groberg is one of them.  The autobiography tells the story of his childhood, his decision to join the Army, his time in Afghanistan and after his time in the military.  Reading this book makes me grateful for men like Groberg who was willing to risk his life and limb for others.

Looking for a devotional Bible stories book you can read to your kids?  I like this particular book because this is a children’s Bible story book based upon God’s titles found in the Word of God. There are forty chapters in the book with each covering a different title.  The subtitle for the book is “40 Reasons to Trust God” and of course God’s title reveal His character and attributes which are reasons why we can trust God.  I enjoyed reading this book to my children and also my children enjoyed it when I read it to them.  They would often ask me to keep on reading to the next chapter as part of our nightly reading routine before they go to sleep.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How many were from the tribe of Simeon?

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


“their numbered men of the tribe of Simeon were 59,300.” (Numbers 1:23)


“These are the families of the Simeonites, 22,200.” (Numbers 26:14)

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

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