John Charles Ryle. Thoughts for Young Men.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, August 17, 2015. 44 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

What is a book a young person can read to grow spiritually and maturity?  This is a classic by John Charles Ryle that is a timeless classic.  I think given our time this is also edifying for people in their 20s to also read.  John Charles Ryle who is best known by his pen name J.C. Ryle wrote this filled with godly and biblical exhortations that isn’t just applicable to his time period.  In fact in reading this the second time and also in conjunction with the youths in our church (pre-teens and teens) I felt it is more relevant and edifying than when I first read it ten years ago in my 20s.

This is a series on the attributes of God.

Selected Scriptures

Purpose: In this session we shall look to the Old Testament for seven clarification of what God’s omnipresence means and also what does this mean for our lives.

Reminder of the definition of the omniscience of God:

  1. Wayne Grudem: “God does not have size or spatial dimension and is present at every point of space with his whole being, yet God acts differently in different places.”[1]
  2. John Feinberg: “God’s omnipresence, on the other hand, signifies that God is present in the totality of his being at each point in space.”[2]
  3. John Frame: “Spatial omnipresence cannot mean that God is a physical substance spread through the material universe. What it means, rather is that God’s power, knowledge and ability to act in the finite world are universal.”[3]

A few days news about John Piper’s son departure from the Christian faith and him going on social media to attack Christianity and the Bible went viral.  As a result someone asked how to go about teaching the difficult parts of the Bibles to kids.   Since I just finished with Genesis 22 in my Bible studies with my daughters I thought I share some of my thoughts and examples.

Ministry has been busy with answering people’s theological questions every day!  I consider it a joy though and a privilege.

Someone wrote of how he’s discouraged as it seems he’s the only one being transfomed while those aound him doesn’t seem to change.  He’s also wondering about if’s the stumbling block and is also discouraged.

Here’s my pastoral reply:

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

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 5:44.  Here is my translation:

“ἐγὼ δὲ λέγω ὑμῖν· ἀγαπᾶτε τοὺς ἐχθροὺς ὑμῶν καὶ προσεύχεσθε ὑπὲρ τῶν
But I say to you ‘Love your enemies and pray for those

διωκόντων ὑμᾶς, ”
who persecute you

Here are some observations:

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Was God satisfied with his creation?

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

Yes, he was pleased with everything he had made.

And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:31)

No, he wished he’d never created it.

So the Lord was sorry that He had made mankind on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 Then the Lord said, “I will wipe out mankind whom I have created from the face of the land; mankind, and animals as well, and crawling things, and the birds of the sky. For I am sorry that I have made them.”” (Genesis 6:6-7)

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

GO TO PART 59

 

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up.  There are times when those who assert that there are contradictory verses in the Bible fail to acknowledge that words can have more than one meaning and thus a word used in one context does not mean the same thing in another context.  But if one fail to recognize there are differences of meaning of the word being used in two separate contexts, a skeptic can easily assume there’s a Bible contradiction when there are none.  Are there any examples of this error to get the point across to a skeptic of their foolish methodology and mistake?
