It turns out the guy and the guy’s family also have been continuously involved with their ministry in war torn Iraq and Syria, where ISIS has affected the area terribly.  This include reaching out to the families and children of ISIS fighters.  You see a bit of what they are doing through this video:

Ten days ago I got a comment on my post Who Is God? Trinity Debate: Dr. James White vs Bro. Joe Ventilacion that I want to respond to in this post.  For context the original post was a debate between Christian apologist James White and a defender of the cult Iglesia ni Cristo.

Iglesia ni Cristo denies the deity of Christ.  In the comment section of my post an individual name “TaTaton90” argued against the divinity of Christ. In this post I want address this specific argument:

Jesus Christ cannot be God and be praying to himself.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Were Naaman and Ard the sons or the grandsons of Benjamin?

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

They were the sons of Benjamin.

The sons of Benjamin: Bela and Becher and Ashbel, Gera and Naaman, Ehi and Rosh, Muppim and Huppim and Ard.” (Genesis 46:21)

They were the grandsons of Benjamin.

The sons of Bela were Ard and Naaman: of Ard, the family of the Ardites; of Naaman, the family of the Naamites.” (Numbers 26:40)

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