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

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

775

the sons of Arah” (Ezra 2:5)

652

the sons of Arah, 652” (Nehemiah 7:10)

Thomas Sowell.  The Quest for Cosmic Justice.  New York, NY: Free Press, February 5, 2002. 224 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Have you notice a redefinition of “justice” today among those who are advocates of Social Justice?  Even if you think this doesn’t interests you it is definitely affecting you and costing you directly and indirectly today by the actions of its advocate.  These ideas though are nothing new and over the decades of ministry in college campuses I see these ideas discussed in Academia is now being yelled out aloud literally and the consequences being reaped on the streets of America in 2020.  This book was originally published in 1999 but reading this in 2020 I was blown away how relevant it is twenty one years later.  The observations that the author made and also his refutations is very powerful and I love how factual and data driven the author is.  This is probably the most important book I read in 2020 and I’m surprised why more people don’t know about this book.  Out of the six books I have read from author Thomas Sowell this to me is one of the best book I have read from him and it is not only compelling but reading this book is a training session of how to think soundly in the realm of social sciences, economics and discussions about what is justice.

Point: Presuppositional apologetics as founded by Cornelius Van Til make the point that to attack Christianity ends up being self-destructive to one’s worldview, making things unintelligible and meaningless.  The bigger problem isn’t the “gadfly” of a Christian doctrine; but rather to try to remove it results in more serious problems.

Picture: Here is a news story that illustrate the point of Presuppositional apologetics:

A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!  Finally a Batman review for some of you fans!

I’m going to review volume 11 first before volume 10 since volume 11 is way better than volume 10.

(EDITED: If you want to read some old school Batman fun check out our recent review “Review: Batman: Year Two 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.”

Tom King.  Batman, Volume 11: The Fall and the Fallen. Burbank, CA: DC Comics, January 14th 2020. 144 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

Here’s some more Batman adventures!  As I mentioned in my review of volume 10 the last volume felt like a dreamy filler but here in this volume it picks up from volume 8 after Batman was knocked out in a plot by Bane.  This volume collects Batman issues number 70-74 and Secret Files #2.

Greg Bahnsen sitting down

I think one of the best Christian apologist of the last half of the last Century was Greg Bahnsen.  He was a skilled debater and lecturer on Presuppositional Apologetics!  We have shared many resources from him on our blog.  All you have to do is type in his name under search.

Here’s another one of him speaking on how to do apologetics based upon the teaching recorded in Acts 17:

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How long was the ark afloat?

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

For seven months or so.

In the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat.” (Genesis 8:4)

For at least ten months.

The water decreased steadily until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains became visible.” (Genesis 8:5)

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

This is to unite, not to divide and I want to do that by challenging an incomplete narrative and also something that goes against objective historical facts. I think everyone will benefit from seeing how interconnected we are as Americans. I saw several Pastors shared a link on FB written by a Chinese American pastor who wrote this about Asian Americans relations with African Americans. I found it problematic on so many levels:

“What many Asian Americans fail to realize is that our success is largely built on the backs of African Americans themselves. After all, if African American slavery did not exist, the United States may not have been such a desirable country to immigrate to. It was through the enslavement of African Americans that American prosperity was built in the first place.”

Notice the quote made specific claims:
(a) Asian Americans as a group succeeded at the expense of African Americans.
(b) Asian Americans might not have desired to come to the United States if it wasn’t for America having African American slavery.
(c) The prosperity in America from slavery is what attracted Asian Americans to take advantage of it in America.

But is this factually true?
