For today’s post we will tackle another question from the Skeptic Annotated Bible: Where does God dwell?

This one should be filed under the category of “Too Silly.”

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

God dwells in Zion.

Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion; Declare among the peoples His deeds.” (Psalm 9:11)

His tabernacle is in Salem; His dwelling place also is in Zion.” (Psalm 76:2)

Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, Dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain. So Jerusalem will be holy, And strangers will pass through it no more….And I will avenge their blood which I have not avenged, For the Lord dwells in Zion.” (Psalm 9:11)

God dwells in the heavens.

“To You I lift up my eyes, O You who are enthroned in the heavens!” (Psalm 123:1)

“Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few.” (Ecclesiastes 5:2)

One of the comments in my previous post “” had a comment from “Javier” that tried to argue against the Trinity:

History and Archeology show that the Trinity comes from the false religion. You can find images and sculptures of trinitarian gods from Babylon and Egypt in museums and ancient churches. The Trinity had its origin and development by men in the councils of Nicaea (325 CE) and Constantinople (381 CE), not in the Bible.

Here’s my reply:

It seems to me that most of the objection I’ve heard against Presuppositional Apologetics is a misunderstanding of this method of apologetics.  Either it is that or there’s a deliberate misrepresentation.  But I believe once one finally understand Presuppositional Apologetics…well the picture captures it well.

In this post I want to deal with a blog post by someone that have posted against Presuppositional Apologetics.  I want to be even more narrow in my focus to point out how sometimes objections against Presuppositional Apologetics seems to be quite appropriately described as schizophrenic. To avoid distraction I’m not even going to deal with the misrepresentations of Presuppositionalism but I am going to look only at what the guy assumes and show how it is internally incoherent within his own words–let alone whether his critique truly refutes what Presuppositionalists really believe.

For today’s post we will tackle another question from the Skeptic Annotated Bible: Did Sarah have faith that she would conceive?

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

Yes, she had faith.

By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised.” (Hebrews 11:11)

No, she laughed at God.

“He said, “I will surely return to you at this time next year; and behold, Sarah your wife will have a son.” And Sarah was listening at the tent door, which was behind him. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in age; Sarah was past childbearing. 12 Sarah laughed to herself, saying, “After I have become old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” 13 And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, when I am so old?’ 14 Is anything too difficult for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” 15 Sarah denied it however, saying, “I did not laugh”; for she was afraid. And He said, “No, but you did laugh.”” (Genesis 18:10-15)

I really appreciate the preaching ministry of Alex Montoya.  In this recent sermon at The Master’s Seminary chapel session, Dr. Montoya preaches a sermon “The Harvest Is Plentiful, But the Workers Are Few.”  It is based upon Matthew 9:36 – 10:16.

He goes to the heart of Jesus and exhorts the listeners to serve the Lord.
