why-conservative-asian-american-churches-are-prolife-and-pro-family

Liberal Huffington Post Religion Section has a piece yesterday titled “It’s Lonely Being A Liberal Asian-American Christian.” Personally I found the whole piece reeking of everything that I can’t stand with my generation: A hyper obsession with being different in one’s identity, a super sensitivity of finding things that are wrong with others, and a way of going about always having others have the responsibility instead of self masked in intellectual sounding guises.  Yet where the intellectual powers are suppose to count (in critical thinking skills) it is somewhat lacking.  Somehow the university scene inject all these things on steroids for some Millennials.

For example let’s look at what the writer has to say for why Asian American churches are conservative.  She said the following:

My first book review for 2017!

god-the-son-incarnate

Stephen J. Wellum. God the Son Incarnate.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, November 30th 2016.  480 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This book is a part of Crossway’s Foundations of Evangelical Theology series.  I appreciated the series overall and this work on Christology is now among my top favorites in the series.  It is quite a meaty work and reading it was no small undertaking.  Reading this book makes me appreciate just how much Christian scholarship exists and how much that I still need to tap into.  I learned a lot reading this book.  In my opinion I think Stephen Wellum’s work is ideal as a seminary text book and for those who desire to seriously study the doctrines related to Christ more deeply.  In this review I am going to first summarize each parts and chapters of the book and end with some brief constructive criticisms.

bible-contradiction-resolved-at-his-baptism-did-god-address-jesus-directly

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “At his baptism, did God address Jesus directly?”

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

Yes.

You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased. (Mark 1:11b, Luke 3:22b)

No, God addressed those who witnessed his baptism.

and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.” (Matthew 3:17)

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

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

This CBS’ 60 Minutes Documentary on the Navy SEALs rescue of Jessica Buchanan was quite emotional at the end of the video when they had her share in her own words.  It shows the incredible sacrifice of some of our elite warriors in the Special Operations Community going all out to rescue a hostage even to the risk of their own life.

Of course I can’t watch something like this without being very moved emotionally.  I try to imagine what its like to be in her shoe, to be alive when one might have counted one’s life dead.

I can imagine a bit of the gratitude she must have for these warriors.  It’s no surprised that when I went on Youtube I also found that she recently spoke of her experience in support of the Navy SEAL foundation.

That got me thinking tangent to another rescue operation.

Spurgeon2

In Charles Spurgeon’s Lectures to My Students the famous Victorian Era preacher he has a chapter on “Earnestness: Its Marring and Maintenance.”  I appreciated how Spurgeon talked about how the preacher could have his zeal or earnestness marred through various predicaments.  Among them is the lack of studying.

I’ll let Spurgeon speak for himself as he said it better than I could:
