At a church retreat right now and teaching on the Beatitudes.

Since last month I wrote a post titled “”  I want to write this as a follow up post since I believe the sign of someone truly thirsting for God is someone thirsting for righteousness.

This is a study outline based upon Matthew 5:6

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.  This book just came out last week and its currently #1 in Amazon’s category of New Release for Children’s Bible study.  At this moment it is relatively reasonable in its price too!

 

Harvest House Bible Inforgraphics Team. Bible Infographics for Kids Volume 2.  Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, May 7th 2019.  56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a fun and informative book for kids concerning the Bible published by Harvest House Publishers.  I went through this book together with my kids at night and they enjoyed the pictures, graph and facts.  The details include truths that are more like “fun facts” but at times there were some very good instruction concerning more weighty matters that was extremely helpful.  The artwork is well done and really reinforce the content being taught.  After reading this volume I’m considering getting volume 1 which is my vote of approval for this book.

Forgiving is hard.  An English poet (Alexander Pope) once said “To err is human, to forgive divine.”  Certainly by our own power and in our flesh alone it is very hard to forgive.

I don’t listen to country.  But I found this song after listening to hymns on Youtube.  The song is called “The Preacher And The Stranger.”

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who created heaven and earth?

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

God the Father did it all by himself.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, “I, the Lord, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone,” (Isaiah 44:24)

Jesus did it.

There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light. 9 There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.” (John 1:6-10)

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.” (Colossians 1:16)

Both of them did it.

yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.” (1 Corinthians 8:6)

 

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

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