As a Pastor I’m always ministering to people in trials.  Sometimes it seems like the Lord is not answering prayers the way we want it to be resolved which leaves one wondering if God is working.

A recent thought came to mind that I wanted to write and spell out.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Will there be many Jews?

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

Yes

“indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.””” (Genesis 22:17-18)

“I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;” (Genesis 26:4)

No

“The Lord will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations where the Lord drives you.” (Deuteronomy 4:27)

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

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

Robert Jones. Prodigal Children: Hope and Help for Parents.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, January 31, 2018. 40 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is a booklet written to address parents whose adult children might have either left the faith or embraced an ungodly lifestyle.  As a pastor I think there is a huge need for good Christian writing to address parents undergoing such trials and I’m glad that both the author Robert Jones and the publisher have saw fit to have this book fill this important niche.  As a booklet it is part of a wonderful biblical counseling series called “Resources for Changing Lives” printed by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing.  In the past there were many works in this series which I have read, reviewed and recommended and this booklet now also would be included among them.

Note: This is the fourth installment of a seven part series we will feature on Sunday on the important topic of a Christian Theology of Health by Dr. Joshua Trock.  His Twitter account can be found here.

Idolatry and Our Bodies 

“You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 1 Cor 6:19-20 

Gym rats. Cardio queens. Muscles Heads. CrossFit fanatics. In my previous articles I began each premise with the assumption that most of us are not eating healthy or exercising on a regular basis. I put focus on showing why there is a theological “ought” behind glorifying God with our health that included eating right and exercising. In this article I want to shift focus to the other extreme where a Christian may be taking healthy eating, sports and fitness to the point of idolatry. My hope is that we can use the same biblical grounding I put forth in my previous articles to create a robust guide to curb either extreme and to help align our thinking and planning to best glorify God with the freedom that we have regarding our health.

As I’m going over this with a group of guys from my church I thought the following questions might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

For discussion questions for previous chapters click on the following:

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

The questions in this post will be for chapter 5 of the book.  Each question is followed by page numbers in parenthesis where the answer can be found.
