Jon Harris has wrote a book titled “Social Justice Goes to Church.” He has a recent video for his show “Conversations That Matter” titled “CRT and Triperspectivalism.” Here is the video:

In the video he asks “Is Triperspectivalism a Third Way for CRT?” Specifically he wonders if John Frame’s Triperspectivalism is something that would be problematic when it comes to approaching Critical Race Theory.

I appreciate Jon Harris this past year for raising concern of various unbiblical idea that have creep into the church from our culture, especially with items that the elites in the West push for politically. Things like Woke ideology/theology, gender/identity politics, compromises, etc. But here I do think his view of Triperspectalism as potentially a risk that aid the advance of Critical Race Theory by either Frame himself or those who follow Frame (example would be Timothy Keller) is problem. I do want to note Harris seem to use the term “Critical Race Theory” to refer to the social justice movement/woke ideology in general rather than the specific legal theory. I appreciate Harris’ overall tone when he talks about controversial issues. I also appreciate Harris’ nuances to say he doesn’t know if John Frame or certain followers of Frame who would use Triperspectivalism to promote Critical Race Theory. In addition Harris has the humility to say where he doesn’t know what Frame’s view is.

My post wishes to clarify some things about Triperspectivalism itself, second how Triperspectivalism can help clarify ethics in general and finally how Triperspectivalism help in critiquing Critical Race Theory.

Family Duty by John Bunyan

John Bunyan. Family Duty.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, July 12th 2016. 35 pp.

4 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Want a booklet on a biblical view of family?  Specifically would you want to have something to read concerning the roles of a husband, wife, father, mother, and children?  This is one that I would recommend.  I read this in one sitting and pulled nearly an all-night reading since it was spiritually edifying.  This booklet is by the famous preacher and Christian author John Bunyan.  It is amazing to think that he died in 1688 but his work is relevant for the 21st Century; that is a testimony of how when writers focus on being biblical it always is timely.

The Glory of God Part 2: The Trinity Glorifying One Another

Purpose: In this post we shall consider that one of the ways the members of the Trinity relate to one another is that both the Father and the Son seeks to glorify Christ so that we can deal with our struggle for recognition today.

  1. The Son does glorify the Father
  2. The Son’s does pray to the Father that He be glorified with the Father
  3. The Father glorifies the Son
  4. The Spirit glorifies the Son
  5. How does this apply to our lives?

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 6:10.  Here is my translation:

“ἐλθέτω ἡ βασιλεία σου·
Your kingdom come

γενηθήτω τὸ θέλημά σου,
Your will be done

ὡς ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς· ”
as in heaven also on earth

Here are some observations:

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: May strangers observe the Passover?

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

Yes

And if a stranger resides among you and celebrates the Passover to the Lord, according to the statute of the Passover and its ordinance, so he shall celebrate it; you shall have the same statute, both for the stranger and for the native of the land.’”” (Numbers 9:14)

At least if they’re circumcised.

But if a stranger resides with you and celebrates the Passover to the Lord, all of his males are to be circumcised, and then he shall come near to celebrate it; and he shall be like a native of the land. But no uncircumcised male may eat it.” (Exodus 12:48)

No

And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “This is the ordinance of the Passover: no foreigner is to eat it;” (Exodus 12:43)

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did the city of Ai exist after Joshua destroyed it?

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

No, it was never rebuilt after Joshua destroyed it.

So Joshua burned Ai and made it a refuse heap forever, a desolation until this day.” (Joshua 8:28)

Yes, it existed at the time of the Babylonian captivity.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Should we rend our clothes?

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

Yes.

since your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before the Lord when you heard what I spoke against this place and against its inhabitants, that they would become an object of horror and a curse, and you have torn your clothes and wept before Me, I have indeed heard you,’ declares the Lord.”” (2 Kings 22:19)

Because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard His words against this place and its inhabitants, and because you humbled yourself before Me, tore your clothes, and wept before Me, I have indeed heard you,” declares the Lord.” (2 Chronicles 34:27)

A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak.” (Ecclesiastes 3:7)

No.

Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “Return to Me with all your heart, And with fasting, weeping, and mourning; 13 And tear your heart and not merely your garments.” Now return to the Lord your God, For He is gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger, abounding in mercy And relenting of catastrophe.” (Joel 2:12-13)

Now it happened, when Elisha the man of God heard that the king of Israel had torn his clothes, that he sent word to the king, saying, “Why did you tear your clothes? Just have him come to me, and he shall learn that there is a prophet in Israel.” (2 Kings 5:8)
