A late post, but here’s a weekend reading review…because Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!

Gary Krist. The Mirage Factory: Illusion, Imagination, and the Invention of Los Angeles.  New York, NY: Crown Publishing Group, May 15th 2018. 416 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a fascinating book on the history of how Los Angeles became the city that it has become.  I have seen previously other titles by Gary Krist on other big and famous cities and their history but this is the first time I have read his book.  I gave this book a try because it focuses on Los Angeles and I have some roots and sentiments with this city.  This book impressed me enough that I am considering reading other titles by Krist.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked:  Did Sarah have faith that she would conceive?

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

Yes, she had faith.

By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised.” (Hebrews 11:11)

No, she laughed at God.

 He said, “I will surely return to you at this time next year; and behold, Sarah your wife will have a son.” And Sarah was listening at the tent door, which was behind him. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in age; Sarah was past childbearing. 12 Sarah laughed to herself, saying, “After I have become old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” 13 And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, when I am so old?’ 14 Is anything too difficult for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” 15 Sarah denied it however, saying, “I did not laugh”; for she was afraid. And He said, “No, but you did laugh.”” (Genesis 18:10-15)

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

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

We have quite a stream of readers of our blog from Southern California and I thought it would be helpful to post this.

This is courtesy of Craig Huey of Election Forum (HT).

I have gotten less political over the years and while I do not believe salvation or the kingdom of God is achieved by political means nevertheless I believe Christians must be informed so that when they practice the privilege of voting in the United States they vote not against biblical principles but as much as possible consistent with it.  Over the years California legislature has become increasingly tyrannical against Christians values in the name of “tolerance” such as Assembly Bill 2943 which fortunately was shelved and was a huge answer prayer.

So here’s the voter’s guide for Los Angeles County for November 6th, 2018:
