Humility

Ok. I have a little bit of a problem. I like being right. Often, too much. While it sounds like like a lofty goal to strive for a high level of accuracy and help people understand advanced topics, I have to admit, far too often, it is simply for puffing up my own pride. It took the hard truth of scripture and a recent journey to discover my biological family that helped me truly understand this, and it all happened with God’s perfect timing.

I imagine many Christians can increase their knowledge of the Minor Prophets.  Here’s a survey of the sixth book of the Minor Prophets: Micah.

Purpose: We will look at the authorship, purpose, structure and other aspects of the book of Micah so we would be more familiar with this part of the Bible and yearn to study it for ourselves.

This is a Christian Home School Lesson Series for first graders on the 50 United States.

I typically go over two states at a time since we teach our kids multiple subjects during the day and two states at a time seems to be enough.  However if one is teaching one subject at a time I think going over four states at a time would be just right.

Our series’ lesson plan will be in alphabetical order and go over four states at a time.

Are there any other interesting facts you would add for any of the states mentioned?  Feel free to leave a comment!

If you have followed this blog for any time you know I highly recommend the Christian apologist Jason Lisle who wrote the book The Ultimate Proof which I reviewed here.

For those who want to hear him teach this revolutionary and biblical way of doing apologetics (called Presuppositional apologetics and first advocated by Cornelius Van Til) before you read the book you might be happy to know he recently taught at a men’s conference which teaching the church has made available online!

I’m not as fast as I would like in finishing up my lessons overseas.

Just thought I update you all.

Its a 30 hour semester course I’m trying to finish up.

I got 8 more books in the Old Testament to go and one lecture that will be an introduction to the Old Testament that will mash up three previous studies I have.

Thanks for those who are praying and continue to pray!

For today’s post we will tackle an issue from the “Rational Wiki” which has an entry under “Jacob.”  Its a wiki for those bent on skepticism and atheism.  Under the section “How to be a Good Christian™ according to Jacob'” they wrote “Jacob is truly the best role model for all Christian family value types, especially those looking for any “out” for all those misdeeds.”

Then the page gives a list of “virtues:”

  • Jacob has 2 wives (both cousins of his) and 2 lovers, and 12 kids. No wonder so many Christian leaders are confused about exactly how many women they should be making love to.
  • Jacob understands that lies done in the pursuit of the “greater good” (at least his own greater good) are acceptable; he lies in order to gain his father’s blessing and the land given to the first born. In a rather elaborate lie that could not just be discounted as “heat of the moment”, Jacob dresses in costume, disguises his voice, and begs for the blessing.
  • Jacob manipulates the market (that practice had to come from somewhere), by artificially changing the color of the skin of his favored sheep to look like unwanted weak sheep, and keeping them for himself and giving his father-in-law those of lesser quality, lying by saying they were the best of the lot.
  • Jacob has no problem manipulating people: First he convinces his mother to help with his lie to Isaac, his father, then he convinces his wife to steal for him, taking the family idols from his father-in-law’s home, bringing blessings to himself instead.

Obviously the above are not lists of Christian virtues for Christians to apply.  This is all stated to make the Bible sound absurd.

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