bible-contradiction-did-jesus-say-he-would-always-be-with-his-disciples

For other posts see our Collection of Posts Responding to Bible Contradictions.

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Did Jesus say he would always be with his disciples?”

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

Yes

teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

No

For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me. (Matthew 26:11)

For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me. (Mark 14:7)

 For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me. (John 12:8)

My first book review for 2017!

god-the-son-incarnate

Stephen J. Wellum. God the Son Incarnate.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, November 30th 2016.  480 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This book is a part of Crossway’s Foundations of Evangelical Theology series.  I appreciated the series overall and this work on Christology is now among my top favorites in the series.  It is quite a meaty work and reading it was no small undertaking.  Reading this book makes me appreciate just how much Christian scholarship exists and how much that I still need to tap into.  I learned a lot reading this book.  In my opinion I think Stephen Wellum’s work is ideal as a seminary text book and for those who desire to seriously study the doctrines related to Christ more deeply.  In this review I am going to first summarize each parts and chapters of the book and end with some brief constructive criticisms.

bible-contradiction-resolved-is-it-a-a-good-thing-to-be-childish

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Is it a good thing to be childish?”

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

Yes, it is good to be childish.

and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
(Matthew 18:3)

But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. (Matthew 19:14)

Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” (Mark 10:15)

Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” (Luke 18:17)

No, it is not good to be childish.

When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. (1 Corinthians 13:11)

Brethren, do not be children in your thinking; yet in evil be infants, but in your thinking be mature. (1 Corinthians 14:20)

As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness [b]in deceitful scheming; (Ephesians 4:14)

I reviewed over a hundred titles on our blog in 2016.  So here’s the top books from that list.  My categories is as follows: Best Book on the Bible, Best book on Theology, Best book on Apologetics, Best Practical Christian book, Best General Non-Fiction, Best Comic Book and Best Audio Book.  Each category has a link to my original review.

Best Book on the Bible

The Flow of the Psalms

The Flow of the Psalms by O. Palmer Robertson

This was the best book I’ve ever read on the organization of the Psalms and how it contributes to our interpretation of it.  This is years of serious research and reflection on the Psalms.  I believe it would be a resource I would use as a reference for a long time and perhaps worth reading more than once!

The other day I saw that Twitter was trending with the hashtag #BoycottDelta.  It was about how supposedly Delta Airlines was racist and bigoted in kicking out a Muslim name Adam Saleh for speaking Arabic.

It’s ironic that the left spends so much time talking about censoring fake news…would be the very ones falling for (you guessed it) fake news.

So to those on the left: If you were guillby trending and think is something on the right, you might be part of the problem.

Here’s David Wood exposing Adam Saleh.  David Wood responded really well and cogently and gives examples to consider just how problematic Adam Saleh’s attempt to get attention is.

Share this with others for the sake of the truth because the truth matters.
