If you have followed our blogs for years, you know it’s that time again….I’ll be getting ready again to prepare to teach and train pastors overseas sometime in Spring 2020.  I can’t disclose the destination.  As usual I’ll be going somewhere where I won’t have stable internet access and also other restrictions.

Would you want to “keep the fort down” for this blog while I am away by writing a guest post that I can schedule and also interacting with those who comment on the blog for the day it is posted?

I’m taking requests right now and asking for submission by sometime in March.  Posts will have to be biblically sound (obviously) and can be on the topic of the Bible, theology, apologetics, Christian worldview, etc.

Drop us a comment and let us know!

GO TO PART 53

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up and the example given of a Bible contradiction really isn’t a Bible contradiction but an instance where one account gives lesser detail than another account.  Are there examples we can give in other areas outside of the Bible of how such a tactic to claim there’s a Bible contradiction is problematic?

I think the following illustration below would be helpful.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Saul inquire of the Lord?

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

Saul inquired of the Lord.

When Saul inquired of the Lord, the Lord did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by prophets.” (1 Samuel 28:6)

Saul did not inquire of the Lord.

So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the Lord, because of the word of the Lord which he did not keep; and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making inquiry of it, 14 and did not inquire of the Lord. Therefore He killed him and turned the kingdom to David the son of Jesse.” (1 Chronicles 10:13-14)

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

Was preaching at our Church retreat this weekend.  Left on Friday and left the retreat areas on Sunday morning to go to our church and preached our regular service.  Then went to another church to guest speak but along the way had lots of discussions!

So I’m officially tired.

But a thought occurred to me.

This is for a retreat this weekend where I’ll be teaching on the topic of the Trinity and Christian life!

Purpose: In this lesson we will explore John 17:20-23 and see how the Trinity helps with Christian unity so that we would be united as a church spiritually.

  • Point 1: The result of Christian Unity
  • Point 2: Mirroring the Trinity for our Unity
  • Point 3: Means of Unity

Passage:I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.” (John 17:20-23)

  • The context here is Jesus’ prayer to God the Father the night He is going to die.
  • Here Jesus’ prayer is for the believers of all time and not just His immediate disciples on that night.
