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.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How many of Bani’s offspring returned from Babylon?

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

642

the sons of Bani, 642;” (Ezra 2:10)

648

“the sons of Binnui, 648;” (Nehemiah 7:15)

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

No doubt 2020 has been crazy and for now 2021 still looks the same as 2020.  I thought I share portions of my ongoing “This Sunday” series specifically the ones that are unique for our time as a way of starting the year strong in the things of God even as our world is crazy.  I plan to continue these and there’s some other ideas I have in mind and Lord willing God gives me practical ideas to encourage God’s people.

I was going to do a Bible contradiction post but that can wait till next week.  A Christian friend shared with me this was incredible interview with Jonny Kim, a Navy SEAL sniper, Harvard Medical School graduate and Astronaut.  I was just floored and the interview was nothing that I expected.  I mean already his accomplishment is already incredible what he’s accomplished by his mid30s.  But to hear him speak starting with what he experienced with his traumatizing childhoood was unexpected.

Here’s the video:

Our Top 10 Posts of 2020

The year is about to be over. Since tomorrow I want to do a post of my favorite books I read for 2020 I thought for today I post on the top 10 posts for Veritas Domain according to the amount of views.

Our blog focuses a lot on the Bible, the Christian worldview, theology and apologetics.  We also write on practical matters such as marriage, devotionals and the church.  Then there’s book reviews on the above subjects in addition to reviews of books on history and for kids.

I’m thankful for all of you who reblogged our posts and shared them across various social media.  We hit two milestone this year.  See Blog Milestone: 1.7 Million Views and Blog Milestone: 1.8 Million Views.

Below is our top posts written in 2020.

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.

Review: Batman: Noël

A Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!  So here’s a Batman comic book review!

Lee Bermejo. Batman: Noël. New York, NY: DC Comics, November 2nd 2011. 112 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

A Batman Christmas story?  Can it be?  Indeed!  I enjoyed this comic book that is a Batman’s version of Charles Dickens’ famous story A Christmas Carol, but modern and updated in the world of Gotham.  I enjoyed it perhaps more than some of the reviewers online and hope some of the people’s negative remark might not turn people away and perhaps my review can add some balance consideration!

Someone asked me a question: “How do you usually evangelize to someone who is illiterate who don’t know how to read and write at all?”  Some readers might think “Are there people illiterate in the 21st Century?”  The answer is yes for different reasons.  Here I thought I share my reply that I’ve further edited into a post.

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

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

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.

Merry Christmas!  Since this is Christmas I thought I gather in one post what contradictions I dealt with surrounding the account of the Birth of Jesus from the bigger lists of Bible Contradictions we have refuted.  The following are from the last two years.  Lord willing I plan to add more posts to the list for next Christmas!

Here’s the listing:

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 2:14.  Here is my translation:

“SENTENCE 14 [TP ὁ TP] δὲ ἐγερθεὶς παρέλαβεν τὸ παιδίον καὶ τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ
And he rose and took the child and His mother

νυκτὸς
by night

SENTENCE καὶ ἀνεχώρησεν εἰς Αἴγυπτον”
and left for Egypt

Here are some observations:

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who is the most blessed woman?

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

Mary

Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And coming in, he said to her, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” 29 But she was very perplexed at this statement, and was pondering what kind of greeting this was.” (Luke 1:26-29)

Jael

Most blessed of women is Jael, The wife of Heber the Kenite; Most blessed is she of women in the tent. 25 He asked for water, she gave him milk; In a magnificent bowl she brought him curds. 26 She reached out her hand for the tent peg, And her right hand for the workmen’s hammer. Then she struck Sisera, she smashed his head; And she shattered and pierced his temple. 27 Between her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay; Between her feet he bowed, he fell; Where he bowed, there he fell dead.” (Judges 5:24-27)

Judith

And Ozias the prince of the people of Israel, said to her: Blessed art thou, O daughter, by the Lord the most high God, above all women upon the earth. 24 Blessed be the Lord who made heaven and earth, who hath directed thee to the cutting off the head of the prince of our enemies. 25 Because he hath so magnified thy name this day, that thy praise shall not depart out of the mouth of men who shall be mindful of the power of the Lord for ever, for that thou hast not spared thy life, by reason of the distress and tribulation of thy people, but hast prevented our ruin in the presence of our God.” (Judith 13:23-25; quoted from Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition)

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