ReformedWiki spent some time to improve the audios for this famous debate between Christian apologist Greg Bahnsen vs Edward Tabash.  The debate took place in UC Davis in California back in 1993.  Unfortunately Dr. Greg Bahnsen died a few years after that debate.  Some of you know he’s my favorite apologist.  Bahnsen was a student of Cornelius Van Til (father of Presuppositional apologetics) and he  was a prolific apologist and theologian while he was alive.

Below is the debate and also further information about Greg Bahnsen:

A lighter post today!  Review of a Christian Children’s book!

 

You See Me, God

Jan Spivey Gilchrist. You See Me, God. Grand Rapids, MI: Our Daily Bread Publishing, August 4th 2020. 32 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Would you like a children’s book that touches on God’s omniscience?  This book then might be worth your while.  Author and artist Jan Sprivey Gilchrist presents us a book on how God is all knowing, and how that is relevant for young children.  Gilchrist largely does that by drawing from our own childhood.  I love that.

Last night our Bible Study was a Question and Answers session. One question that was asked was “How can I be convinced that anger and violence is not a good way to handle issues?”

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Enoch die?

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

Yes

All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.’” (Hebrews 11:13)

 

No

Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” (Genesis 5:24)

By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; and he was not found because God took him up; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God.” (Hebrews 11:5)

 

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

Are you into Batman enough that you are interested in the world of Batman and also its peripheral characters?  Batman of course lives in Gotham City, a city that resembles a lot to New York City.  In this graphic novel (comic) volume Batman moves away from center stage so Gotham City’s police department’s Major Crimes Unit can take the limelight and focus for the readers.  DC Comics got a good team of artists and writers for this Gotham Central series and book four is no different.
