Matthew vines

If you are familiar with Matthew Vines he is a young man that is a popular advocate for the idea that homosexuality is not a sin and is compatible with biblical Christianity.

As one response to Vines this post is on an MP3 audio recording of a message titled “Matthew Vines on Romans 1.”

Here’s the message’s description: “Looking at Gay Affirming advocate Matthew Vines and answering his view on Romans 1.”

Nelson Glueck. Hesed in the Bible.  Eugene, OR: Wipf & Stock Publishers, May 20th 2011.  118 pp.

The Hebrew word Hesed is one that many Christians find fascinating.  It is often translated in English as “covenantal faithfulness” or “loving-kindness.”  This book is written by Nelson Glueck an early twentieth scholar of Reformed Judaism who wrote the first scholarly study of the word Hesed.  Its signifance can be seen with how other studies after Glueck would often cite and interact with Glueck’s view whether they are for or against his particular conclusions.  So it is wonderful to find that an English translation of this classic was done in the 1960s and have been reprinted by Wipf and Stock Publishers.

Atheist Matt Dillahunty has debated Christian apologist Matt Slick of Christian Apologetics Research Ministry (CARM) in at least three different instances over the last seven years.  I thought I post them on here for the sake of convenience of anyone looking for them.

The first one is from 2009 for the Atheist Experience:

As 2016 comes soon to a close here are reviews of 4 audio books that I listened to during the last three months of 2016.  If you are interested here is last year’s .

Unholy Alliance: The Agenda Iran, Russia, and Jihadists Share for Conquering the World

Jay Sekulow. Unholy Alliance: The Agenda Iran, Russia, and Jihadists Share for Conquering the World.   Brentwood, Tennessee: Howard Books, September 20th 2016. 320 pp.

4 out of 5

This book is written by Jay Sekulow who is probably best known to most people as the Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice.  This is the second work by Sekulow that I enjoyed.  In this present title the author tackles the issue radical Islam and also the strange relationship between Iran, Russian and Sunni radical Islamic groups.  For the audio book Jay Sekulow read the book himself and the upbeat manner and pace of how he speaks on his radio show is also how Sekulow read the book which is a plus since I’ve always thought his voice makes whatever he was talking about as serious, urgent and interesting.

The book is comprised of eleven chapters in which the bulk of the book focuses on the history of Iran and explanation to Western readers about Islam.  I found the discussion about the Sunni and Shite divide to be have been pretty spot on.  I think the West often think of radical Islam as affiliated with extremists of the Sunni variety (think Al Qaeda and ISIS) but there’s a whole Shiite form that most in the West don’t think of in the form of Iranian backed Shiite terrorists groups (think Hezbollah, Shiites militia in Iraq backed by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, etc).  I did learn some new things reading this book concerning the history of Iran though and I was surprised to learn of how long it was that Iran was once Westernized.  Of course we know the Iranian revolution with their own Shiite brand of Radical Islam changed all from 1979 onwards.  Towards the end of the book the author cited various evidences of the strange relationship between Iran and other unlikely jihadists and terrorists groups.  Sekulow talked about instances in which Iran helped Al Qaeda and Iran’s support for Hamas even though Hamas is predominately Sunni.  The most interesting wild card is the Russian alliance with Iran in backing Assad’s regime in Syria.

Overall this is an interesting work.  I give it a four out of 5.

This year I have a new focus on our blog of answering Bible contradictions.  Unfortunately I am a slow writer as every Bible contradictions take a lot of time for me to translate and work through and I wished I could crank out more posts resolving alleged Bible contradictions.  Since this is Christmas Eve I thought I gather in one post what contradictions I dealt with surrounding the account of the Birth of Jesus.  Lord willing I plan to add more posts to the list by next Christmas!

Here’s the listing:

The other day I saw that Twitter was trending with the hashtag #BoycottDelta.  It was about how supposedly Delta Airlines was racist and bigoted in kicking out a Muslim name Adam Saleh for speaking Arabic.

It’s ironic that the left spends so much time talking about censoring fake news…would be the very ones falling for (you guessed it) fake news.

So to those on the left: If you were guillby trending and think is something on the right, you might be part of the problem.

Here’s David Wood exposing Adam Saleh.  David Wood responded really well and cogently and gives examples to consider just how problematic Adam Saleh’s attempt to get attention is.

Share this with others for the sake of the truth because the truth matters.

Nancy Guthrie. Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus: Experiencing the Peace and Promise of Christmas.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, August 1st, 2008.  142 pp.

5 out of 5!

First let me say that I have a hard time with devotional books; I prefer heavier theology books since I find most devotionals to be rather shallow.  But I enjoyed this particular collection of devotional readings for the Advent.  So if I enjoyed this book in light of my bias against devotionals, I think that this work might be something worthwhile for others too.

In light of the Christmas season we are tackling “Christmas” related Bible Contradictions. For today’s post we will look at a question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked concerning the two genealogies of Jesus found in Matthew and Luke: “Who was Jesus’s paternal grandfather?”

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


Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, by whom Jesus was born, who is called the Messiah. (Matthew 1:16)


When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph, the son of Eli, (Luke 3:23)

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

Side Note: The Skeptic Annotated Bible uses the name “Heli” for Luke 3:23 whereas the NASB translate it as “Eli.”  The Skeptic Annotated Bible is going with the King James Version pronunciation and there is no major difficulties here, its just an issue of pronunciation. I will use the name “Heli” because it better captures the sound in my opinion and the term would be used interchangeably when I quote the NASB.

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

I’m getting older I suppose.  Things like this tear me up.

On Yahoo front page there was this news story: Notre Dame player’s brother returns from Afghanistan, surprises him at game.

Here’s a gist of the story:

Farrell didn’t think his older brother, first lieutenant Bo Farrell, 26, was coming home from Afghanistan until February. Even though the two talk every day, the last time they had seen each other was in May.

And then a message for Matt came onto the Jumbotron in the Edmond P. Joyce Center after the Irish’s victory over Colgate on Monday night.

“Matty, I’ve been watching you tonight from here,” Bo said on the video. “For us, home is wherever we’re together. And I look forward to being home with you soon. Really really soon.”

Soon was an understatement and no one in the family knew what was coming next. Moments later, Bo appeared, made his way to the court and the two embraced in a teary hug.

Something about seeing military members reunite with their family is moving.
