Point: An argument in the arsenal of Presuppositional apologetics is the Transcendental argument.  John Frame describes apologist Cornelius Van Til’s transcendental argument in the following matter with one of Van Til’s famous illustration:

The non-Christian, then, in Van Til’s famous illustration, is like a child sitting on her father’s lap, slapping his face. She could not slap him unless he supported her. Similarly, the non-Christian cannot carry out his rebellion against God unless God makes that rebellion possible. Contradicting God assumes an intelligible universe and therefore a theistic one.

Why review a biblical counseling book on a blog on theology and apologetics?  Check out our post “

Robert Jones. Angry at God?: Bring Him Your Doubts and Questions. Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, April 1st 2001. 28 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Is it moral and right for Christians to be angry at God?  You might be surprise at the answers some Christians might tell you.  That doesn’t mean they are biblical.  This helpful biblical counseling booklet tackle head-on this question as part of the “Resources for Changing Lives” counseling booklet series.  The author Robert Jones responds in a way that is biblical, balanced, “pastoral” and practical.  Even if you think you know the answer this booklet is still helpful.  I would also say even if you don’t struggle with being angry with God this work is worth reading: not only because there are people around you who struggle with being angry with God but also you be surprised at the subtle way people can be “angry with God” though they might not come out overtly thinking they are mad at God.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What tribe was Aijalon from?

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

Dan.

From the tribe of Dan, Elteke with its pasture lands, Gibbethon with its pasture lands, 24 Aijalon with its pasture lands, Gath-rimmon with its pasture lands; four cities.” (Joshua 21:23-24)

Ephraim.

Now some of the families of the sons of Kohath had cities of their territory from the tribe of Ephraim…Aijalon with its pasture lands and Gath-rimmon with its pasture lands” (1 Chronicles 6:66, 69)

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

 

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

This is quite a common phenomenon:  Sometimes when you are around new groups of people in terms of ethnicities/nationalities it might seem everyone looks the same at first.  It can at times be embarrassing when you can’t tell individuals apart whom you have just met and talk to.  That’s because you don’t know the people yet.

However as you get to know the people more and more over time you will likely find out differences between individuals.  But it takes time and sometimes it takes effort.
