Now for something fun!  I’m reviewing something I haven’t done before on this blog: a Christian polo shirt!

Presupp Shark shirt

If you can tell from yesterday’s post and different posts on my blog I love Presuppositional Apologetics.  I love it enough that I got something related to Presuppositional Apologetics besides books.  I got a polo shirt!

Many years ago as a young Christian I wanted to purchase this lecture series. So the fact that this is now available for free is a treat.

But let’s back up. A few months ago our blog mentioned that all of Apologist Greg Bahnsen’s MP3 Lectures now free for download!

He’s my favorite apologist and has shaped me in so many ways.  He’s one of my role models with his example of scholarship, intellect, boldness to defend the faith, his desire to be biblical and also his pastoral heart.  And everything he did was so intense.

Here is a quick bio of Bahnsen:

Greg L. Bahnsen, (1948-1995), was an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and a full time Scholar in Residence for the Southern California Center for Christian Studies. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Southern California, specializing in the theory of knowledge. He previously received the B.A. (magna cum laude, philosophy) from Westmont College, and then simultaneously earned the M.Div. and Th.M. degrees from Westminster Theological Seminary. Dr. Bahnsen lectured to a broad range of evangelical Christian groups at many colleges and conferences. He was an experienced apologist and debater, a clear and cogent teacher of the Christian worldview who was devoted to training believers in understanding and applying the Christian faith to every area of life. He published numerous scholarly articles, a number of well-known books, and has over 1,500 recorded lectures and sermons.

Among those 1,500 lectures Bahnsen taught a four part series titled “Answer to Frame’s Critique of Cornelius Van Til.” It was just loaded this month on July 7th!

bible_contradiction_resolved_who_was_anah

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who was Anah?

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

Anah was the daughter of Zibeon

Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah, the granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite;” (Genesis 36:2)

And these were the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the granddaughter of Zibeon: she bore to Esau Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.” (Genesis 36:14)

And these are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah: chief Jeush, chief Jalam, and chief Korah. These are the chiefs descended from Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah.” (Genesis 36:18)

And these are the children of Anah: Dishon, and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah.” (Genesis 36:25)

Anah was the son of Seir and the brother of Zibeon.

These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah,” (Genesis 36:20)

And these are the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah—he is the Anah who found the hot springs in the wilderness when he was pasturing the donkeys of his father Zibeon.” (Genesis 36:24)

The sons of Seir were Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan.” (1 Chronicles 1:38)

And Anah was also the son of Zibeon.

The sons of Shobal were Alian, Manahath, Ebal, Shephi, and Onam. And the sons of Zibeon were Aiah and Anah.” (1 Chronicles 10:14)

bible_contradiction_resolved_how_did_saul_die

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How did Saul die?  According to the Skeptic Annotated Bible their page said there is no Christian answer yet.

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

Saul committed suicide.

Then Saul said to his armor bearer, “Draw your sword and pierce me through with it, otherwise these uncircumcised Philistines will come and pierce me through, and abuse me.” But his armor bearer was unwilling, because he was very fearful. So Saul took his sword and fell on it. 5 When his armor bearer saw that Saul was dead, he also fell on his sword and died with him. 6 So Saul died with his three sons, his armor bearer, and all his men on that day together.” (1 Samuel 31:4-6)

Then Saul said to his armor bearer, “Draw your sword and thrust me through with it, otherwise these uncircumcised Philistines will come and abuse me.” But his armor bearer would not, for he was very afraid. So Saul took his own sword and fell on it.” (1 Chronicles 10:4)

Saul was killed by an Amalekite.

Then he said to me, ‘Who are you?’ And I answered him, ‘I am an Amalekite.’ 9 And he said to me, ‘Please stand next to me and finish me off, for agony has seized me because my life still lingers in me.’ 10 So I stood next to him and finished him off, because I knew that he could not live after he had fallen. And I took the crown which was on his head and the band which was on his arm, and I have brought them here to my lord.”” (2 Samuel 1:8-10)

Saul was killed by the Philistines.

then David went and took the bones of Saul and the bones of his son Jonathan from the citizens of Jabesh-gilead, who had stolen them from the public square of Beth-shan, where the Philistines had hanged them on the day the Philistines struck and killed Saul in Gilboa.” (2 Samuel 21:12)

God killed him.

and did not inquire of the Lord. Therefore He killed him and turned the kingdom over to David, the son of Jesse.” (1 Chronicles 10:14)

Brother Eriko Mendez of the Powerful Christian T-shirt Shop has turned into audios of 4 of our posts from Collection of Posts Responding to Bible Contradictions.  These 4 audios are related to method and approach with dealing with Bible contradictions.

I appreciate brother Eriko as a fellow solid brother in Christ who loves the Lord, and is someone who loves Presuppositional apologetics and sharing the Gospel.

I thought this is might be helpful too as these days having the ability to listen to things helps one to redeem the time and allow one to read other materials.

Here are the 4 audios which I also have linked to the original article:

Session 28: Righteousness of God Part 2: Forensic Justification by God’s grace alone

Review: Last session we defined and demonstrated that God is righteous and we also explored what that means for our lives. We often think of God’s righteousness as God treating the righteous righteously and punish the unrighteous.  But there is a third way that God’s righteousness is expressed and that God’s work of forensic justification of sinners.

Purpose: In this session we shall explore what is the doctrine of forensic justification followed by three reasons why we need the forensic justification of God and also explore some implications

Reenchanting Humanity

I have been waiting for this to be online for awhile now and I just saw that this is online!  Dr. Owen Strachan is Provost and Research Professor of Theology at Grace Bible Theological Seminary (he just moved there from Mid-Western Seminary).  He specializes in the area of biblical anthropology (theology of man).  One of the things from 2020 onwards that has become very important in much of the political discussion is what is one’s view of the nature of man.  I just bought his book titled “Reenchanting Humanity” and Lord willing I want to finish it sometime this year and write a review.

Here is his official biography:

Dr. Owen Strachan is Provost and Research Professor of Theology at Grace Bible Theological Seminary. Before coming to GBTS he served as Associate Professor of Christian Theology and Director of the Residency Ph.D Program at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He earned his Ph.D from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, his M.Div from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and his AB from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. He is married and the father of three children. Strachan has authored numerous books, including Reenchanting Humanity: A Theology of Mankind, The Pastor as Public Theologian: Reclaiming a Lost Vision (with Kevin Vanhoozer) and the forthcoming Christianity and Wokeness: How the Social Justice Movement is Hijacking the Gospel – and the Way to Stop it (Salem Books, July 2021). Strachan is the former president of the Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood, the former director of The Center for Public Theology at MBTS and is the President of Reformanda Ministries.

 

The topic covered:

  1. Image of God
  2. Sexuality
  3. Wokeness
  4. Transhumanism/Technology/Other issues
  5. Vocation

I thought I make a post just so its easier to view it all in one place.
