I’m not going into details about end times in this post.  Still I want to make the point that knowing about Christ as our Coming King and other details with the end of things should impact our daily living as a follower of Christ.

This is a discussion about Presuppositional apologetics.  It is between Eli Ayala a presuppositionalist and another presuppositionalist name Dr. Chris Bolt.  Eli interviewed Chris Bolt and Eli’s ministry is called Revealed Apologetics.  Chris Bolt has a doctorate from Southern Seminary in apologetics.  He runs Lighting Apologetics here.  Dr. Bolt is probably best know for being one of the contributors over at Choosing Hats.  He currently blogs here.

Here’s the discussion on Youtube below.

A recent troll said to me:

Jesus himself said he wasn’t God! Mark 10:18 & Luke 18:19

Both Mark 10:18 and Luke 18:19 parallel each other.

This is what Mark 10:18 states:

And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

This is what Luke 18:19 states:

And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

This is how she would argue it:

Jesus denies he’s good: “no one is”

Only God is good

Ergo Jesus isn’t God

Does this show Jesus is not God?  I don’t think so.  Let me explain.

A weekend reading review!  Because Pastors also need a break from heavily theological reading!  Last week I also reviewed a history book: .

Greg King.  The Assassination of the Archduke: Sarajevo 1914 and the Romance that Changed the World.  New York, NY: Saint Martin’s Press, September 3rd 2013. 432 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Most people know about the Archduke as the one who was assassinated that became the catalyst for the First World War.  Other than that little else is known about him not because there’s no information out there but I believe a large part of it is because Archduke Franz Ferdinand was not popular with the elites in the Austrian ruling family and its court and also because the horror of World War One eclipsed everything.  This book turned out to be quite interesting in its own right not just in relations to thing that led to the World War but also for the tragic love story of Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie.  Certainly the human interest is there in this book!

If you have followed our blogs for years, you know it’s that time again….I’ll be getting ready again to prepare to teach and train pastors overseas sometime in Spring 2020.  I can’t disclose the destination.  As usual I’ll be going somewhere where I won’t have stable internet access and also other restrictions.

Would you want to “keep the fort down” for this blog while I am away by writing a guest post that I can schedule and also interacting with those who comment on the blog for the day it is posted?

I’m taking requests right now and asking for submission by sometime in March.  Posts will have to be biblically sound (obviously) and can be on the topic of the Bible, theology, apologetics, Christian worldview, etc.

Drop us a comment and let us know!

GO TO PART 53

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up and the example given of a Bible contradiction really isn’t a Bible contradiction but an instance where one account gives lesser detail than another account.  Are there examples we can give in other areas outside of the Bible of how such a tactic to claim there’s a Bible contradiction is problematic?

I think the following illustration below would be helpful.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Saul inquire of the Lord?

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

Saul inquired of the Lord.

When Saul inquired of the Lord, the Lord did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by prophets.” (1 Samuel 28:6)

Saul did not inquire of the Lord.

So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the Lord, because of the word of the Lord which he did not keep; and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making inquiry of it, 14 and did not inquire of the Lord. Therefore He killed him and turned the kingdom to David the son of Jesse.” (1 Chronicles 10:13-14)

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

Frustrated in Marriage?

Sometimes we need to know we are not the first one who are going through marriage difficulty.  In this two part sermon we can see others in the past faced the same challenges.  Even back in Old Testament times.

Its worth a listen.

Was preaching at our Church retreat this weekend.  Left on Friday and left the retreat areas on Sunday morning to go to our church and preached our regular service.  Then went to another church to guest speak but along the way had lots of discussions!

So I’m officially tired.

But a thought occurred to me.
