For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who carried Jesus’s cross?

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

“They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, [a]bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.” (John 19:17)

 They *pressed into service a passer-by coming from the country, Simon of Cyrene (the father of Alexander and Rufus), to bear His cross.” (Mark 15:21)

When they led Him away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, coming in from the country, and placed on him the cross to carry behind Jesus.” (Luke 23:26)

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

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

What do you do when a discussion about abortion and someone say, “Men can’t tell women what to do with their bodies!”

I saw this from Sye Ten Bruggencate.  This is good:

Sye wrote “When the left’s insanity demolishes one of their favourite arguments.”

That’s a Presuppositional apologist in action!

Huff Post Religion is filled with a lot of junk some of which I have responded to in the past on this blog.  Three days ago there was this post titled “My Love Letter To Islam: Part 1.”  It caught my attention.  While looking up to see if she had more posts (if that was part 1, there must be at least a part 2) I noted her self-described biography:

I was raised as a meat-and-potatoes Irish Catholic girl, but life has transformed me into a vegan Muslim yogi.

I have been immensely blessed by John Frame’s teachings.  Frame has written on a wide array of topics from apologetics, philosphy, theology, worship, Cornelius Van Til’s Presuppositional apologetics, theological education and ethics.  He has just recently retired from teaching theology at Reformed Theological Seminary.

Here are links to my review of each volumes in the Selected Shorter Writings Series.
