Ransom Poythress. Richard Dawkins.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, November 30th 2018. 192 pp.

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

No doubt many people today would have heard of atheist spokesman Richard Dawkins.  What does a Christian and Reformed response to Richard Dawkins looks like?  This work is a defense of the Christian faith that deals with Richard Dawkins by also beyond him in dealing with the subject of atheism.  This book is part of the Great Thinkers series published by P&R Publishing and thus far of the three volumes (this work and the ones on Aquinas and Marx) I have read this one is by far my favorite one.

I have posted in the past “.”  That post was about how the alleged problem of evil presupposes Christian theism.  In this present post I’m assuming what’s taught in that previous post.  Yet what is presented here is not just looking at the problem of evil in terms of suffering from another angle but should be joined with the first post as reinforcing a Christian treatment of theodicy.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How did Moses get water out of the rock?

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

By smiting it.

5 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pass before the people and take with you some of the elders of Israel; and take in your hand your staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 He named the place Massah and Meribah because of the quarrel of the sons of Israel, and because they tested the Lord, saying, “Is the Lord among us, or not?”” (Exodus 17:5-7)

By talking to it.

and the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 8 “Take the rod; and you and your brother Aaron assemble the congregation and speak to the rock before their eyes, that it may yield its water. You shall thus bring forth water for them out of the rock and let the congregation and their beasts drink.”)” (Numbers 20:7-8)

By using the Umim and Thumim.

Of Levi he said, “Let Your Thummim and Your Urim belong to Your godly man, Whom You proved at Massah, With whom You contended at the waters of Meribah” (Deuteronomy 33:8)

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

 

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