What the general attack against Christianity like in today’s culture and society?  There is quite the postmodern feel with much of the rejection and animosity to Christianity today.  This short booklet describe this threat and also calls believers to be faithful to the truth of the Biblical faith.  This is written by Erroll Hulse who is a Reformed Baptist pastor in England who have authored many books and articles including Reformation Today magazine although this is the first time I have heard of him and read any of his writing.

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

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

Ham

Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it on both their shoulders and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were turned away, so that they did not see their father’s nakedness. 24 When Noah awoke from his wine, he knew what his youngest son had done to him.” (Genesis 9:22-24)

Japheth

Now after Noah was five hundred years old, Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Japheth.” (Genesis 5:32)

And Noah fathered three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Genesis 6:10)

On this very same day Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark, ” (Genesis 7:13)

Now the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and Ham was the father of Canaan.” (Genesis 9:18)

Now these are the records of the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and sons were born to them after the flood. (Genesis 10:1)

Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.” (1 Chronicles 1:4)

This is a new series we are starting on the attributes of God.

Selected Scriptures

Purpose: this session we looked at five truths concerning the truth that God is unique so that we would worship and cultivate a loving awe of God.

  1. General statement that God is unique
  2. God is different than humans
  3. There is Only One God
  4. God is different than false gods
  5. Three ways God can be distinct

 

Note: Some Words before we begin this study.

  • Sometimes in Systematic Theology and Apologetics writing this is called the Creator/Creature distinction
  • By unique I mean that God is unlike us or anything other creatures and creation.
  • Also when we talk about God’s incommunicable attributes we are talking about attributes that He alone possess, which makes God unique of all beings.

Someone asked online in an apologetics forum a question of what to do when a former friend who is not a Christian reached out to him going through a serious crisis.  I won’t go over the details but the Christian asked “How do I minister to him? I have grown deeply in the two years we haven’t talked…”

Below is my thoughts which is an edit and additions made to my original response to the individual.  I’m reproducing it since some have said it was helpful.

I think there’s no doubt 2020 has been quite a year for many of us.  The problems people faced and collectively as a society and culture is many.  I won’t rehearse them here.

But I think sometimes we can act like 2020 the year itself caused the problem.  But what if there’s another way of thinking about it.

Note: For fans of Spurgeon have you checked out my Review: Charles Spurgeon Framed Art Print?

I am writing this book primarily as an encouragement to those in my church who are on Winter Break with School, so they can take advantage of their winter break to read things about God and Christ from the famous English Preacher Charles Spurgeon!

 

Charles H. Spurgeon. The First Fruit of the Spirit.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, August 25th 2017. 20 pp.

5 out of 5

Want to read a short but deep and biblical work on God’s perspective of the Christian virtue of love?  I highly recommend this booklet that is written by Charles Spurgeon, one of my favorite preacher from the past that I like to read.  Spurgeon died in 1892 and I’m amazed at how well over hundred years later Spurgeon’s writings which are adapted from his sermons, still speaks to us in a manner that is still relevant and fresh.  In this particular work Spurgeon looks at Galatians 5:22 which tells us the fruit of the Spirit includes love.  Yet what is and is not love?  Spurgeon masterfully uses the passages in the surrounding context to teach us what love is and is not.
