This is part of my plan this year to review more counseling booklets for the sake of the edification and encouragement of the church.

Michael R. Emlet.  Asperger Syndrome.  Greensboro, NC: New Growth  Press, July 28, 2005. 20 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

I found this booklet helpful as an introduction to Asperger syndrome. The booklet’s guidelines and suggestions for those who minister to those with Asperger syndrome was also useful.  I appreciated the background of the author Michael Emlet: A physician turned biblical counselor with a Masters of Divinity from a solid Christian Seminary he has the background to address both the medical and spiritual dimension of the person with Asperger syndrome.

Two days ago I posted “Quick Thought on the Queen James Bible (LGBT) Part 2.”  That post was a response to a gay friendly Bible called the Queen James Bible.  Part 2 was a specific response to the following statement from the product’s Amazon page:

Anti-LGBT Bible interpretations commonly cite only eight verses in the Bible that they interpret to mean homosexuality is a sin; Eight verses in a book of thousands!

I thought that was a terrible argument against the view that homosexuality is a sin which part 2 of my post dealt with.  However our dear friend who blogs at Eternity Matters even added more firepower against the statement’s flawed thinking which puts the “only eight verses” argument in perspective.  It was too good not to share as a post.

Here’s what he said:

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “What did the sign over Jesus’s head say?”

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


And above His head they put up the charge against Him [a]which read, “THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.”
(Matthew 27:37)



The inscription of the charge against Him [a]read, “THE KING OF THE JEWS.” (Mark 15:26)


Now there was also an inscription above Him, “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.” (Luke 23:38)


Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written, “JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS.” (John 19:19)


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

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

Shepherd’s Conference (a conference for Pastors and Preachers) was a few weeks ago with the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and the theme of “We Preach Christ.”  Some of you who were not there still was able to enjoy the General Sessions because the Conference graciously livestreamed them.  However the various seminar sessions are what some people are looking forward to whether you were in the conference or not since they were more specific and occurred simultaneously with other seminar sessions.  Since there are 19 of them they are something that’s going to take some to time for me to listen through!

I know the official Shepherd’s Conference website says “Media Coming Soon” but the Audio MP3s of the seminar sessions can be downloaded by clicking on the title of the sessions below:

I heard about the “Queen James Bible” sometime ago but I saw someone mentioned it on social media just right now.  It is a LGBT friendly Bible.

What’s the first thought that came into my mind?

What an amazing thing that we live today in a time in which the internet allows people from all over the world can be exposed to the East and the West.  It’s a great opportunity for the Gospel.

Here’s a passionate sermon in English and translated into Mandarin Chinese.

Be blessed:

I pray the Lord would use this to witness and plant seed to those who are Chinese speaking and do not know Jesus.

As I’m going over this with a group of guys from my church I thought the following questions might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

For discussion questions for previous chapters click on the following:

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

The questions in this post will be for chapter 4 of the book.  Each question is followed by page numbers in parenthesis where the answer can be found.
