Let me say in the beginning of this post that I’m not Catholic (I strongly think their view of salvation is wrong) nor did I vote for Trump.  Also I am not a racist, being a minority myself nor am I anti-Native American since I married someone who is much more Native American than Elizabeth Warren.  I’m writing this post for the sake of truth: There’s been more fake news from the mainstream media against these high school kids from Coivington High School and the more I look into it the more disturbing it gets.

I have also talked about this with a liberal friend on social media and when I showed them what I found I didn’t get a reply.  But I have seen him become more cautious in his comments with others as a result of what I shared and his friends pointing out that there’s something to what I was saying.  Perhaps this post can help others too.

For today’s post we will tackle an issue the Skeptic Annotated Bible raised: Did Jesus cursed figs to show how much God hates figs?

Here’s the passage the Skeptic thinks is absurd:

 Seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if perhaps He would find anything on it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 He said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again!” And His disciples were listening. 

Mark 11:13-14

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

Here is what the Skeptic Annotated Bible says:

Jesus kills a fig tree for not bearing figs, even though it was out of season. He did this to show the world just how much God hates figs.

I know Christians also struggle with this passage.

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

A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!

Candice Millard. Hero of the Empire: The Boer War, a Daring Escape, and the Making of Winston Churchill.  New York, NY: Doubleday, September 20th 2016.  400 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is the first book I read about the life of Winston Churchill and it focused on him as a young man in the military and as a war correspondent.  Of course Churchill is best known for being the Prime Minister of Great Britain during World War Two but I thought it was good to read about his experiences when he was younger which of course would shape him later in life.  This work by Candice Millard is narrated well and is captivating.  I didn’t know so much about Churchill and I’m glad I read this book!

As I minister to people the question comes up from time to time of how to read more when life gets busy.  I use to share my post  that directed people to a guest post I wrote for another blog.  Unfortunately that blog has ceased to exist and I thought it was regrettable since the website owner did a good job editing the grammar for my essay (I am notorious with bad grammar).  Fortunately I found a web archive online that saved the page so I was able to reproduce the improved  written version.  I also got to expand the article to include two more points!  So below are ten things that helps one read more when life gets busy.

Iain Duguid. Is Jesus in the Old Testament?  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, February 4, 2013. 40 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

I really enjoyed this booklet that is a part of the Basics of the Faith series printed by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing.  This is the sixth booklet that I read from the series and I read it along with my wife as our couple’s devotional reading together.  I was blessed by this beyond my expectation in comparison to the other booklets in the series I have read thus far.
