Last week we wrapped up our 5 part Home School Lesson series on Ants for 4-5 year olds!  Next week on Wednesday we will post a new series on God’s creation of lesser known sea creatures.

Blogger “lnhereford” have shared our ants series on her blog under “Saturday Worksheets – Ants and More” which I really appreciate.

I thought I also posted these lessons in a single post as a helpful table of Contents.

Somehow I never shared this lecture Dr. Jason Lisle presented to the students of The Master’s Seminary on “The Ultimate Proof of Creation” even though I thought I had it posted on here before and have told people to look for it in our blog.  Jason Lisle is a trained astronomer turn Christian apologists has over the years taught on the defense of the Christian faith and also a Christian view of Science.  I have in the past shared other resources from him including his “Nuclear Strength Apologetics Lectures at Heritage Grace Community Church” but I thought it would be good to share as future reference and resource for others a “one shot” summary of Presuppositional apologetics as opposed to a longer series of lectures.  Both have their place.

So here’s the video from Youtube that The Master’s Seminary has graciously allowed to be posted online:

Note: This is the second installment of a seven part series we will feature on Sunday on the important topic of a Christian Theology of Health by Dr. Joshua Trock.  His Twitter account can be found here.

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.                       -1 Corinthians 10:31 

 

The Theology of Eating 

By Dr. Joshua Trock PT, DPT 

 

“I’m hungry, but I probably shouldn’t eat that.” I have no doubt that all of us have uttered that phrase at some point in our life. Whether it’s because we weren’t feeling well and the food may make us sick or we have some sort of weight-loss goal and that second slice of wedding cake would for sure derail our diet. There seems to be an intrinsic “ought” behind our decisions to eat or abstain from certain foods but are these “oughts” merely pragmatic in nature or is there an underlying theological impetus driving these decisions? My goal in this article is to develop a theological framework that undergirds how we approach food and how and what we choose to eat on a regular basis.

A weekend light reading review, because even Pastors (and apologists) needs a break from heavy reading…

Nathan Edmondson.  Grifter, Volume 1: Most Wanted. New York, NY: DC Comics, July 31st 2012. 192 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

While this particular volume is not the original mid-1990s “Grifter” since this is part of DC Comic’s reboot series called “The New 52!” I thought this particular volume was a great introduction to the character.  Over twenty years ago as a kid I badly wanted to read comics that involved the Grifter since I thought his mask looked kind of cool but I never got around to it until now: twenty years later.  I enjoyed this “introduction.”

Josh McDowell is best known among Christian circle as an Evidentialist apologists and for authoring Evidence That Demand a Verdict among other titles.  Of course if you have read this blog for any time now you would recognize that there are some who subscribe to the school of Presuppositional apologetics.  I don’t mean to downplay the differences between Josh McDowell and Presuppositionalists but this post is about where Josh McDowell and Presuppositionalists agree.  What’s even more surprising is that the subject of agreement is on the topic of the most powerful evidence for the Christian Faith.  And that should make us slow down and reflect more deeply about these matters.
