4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This biblical counseling booklet addresses the issue of being thankful.  Specifically it addresses the need to be thankful to God even when there is life difficulties.  The booklet is part of a series called “Resources for Changing Lives” printed by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing and this was one of the earlier volumes.  Like other booklets in this series this was helpful.  Personally I have used this particular title for own edification, for counseling as a Pastor, for a devotional with my wife and also I’m planning on reading it together with one of our church’s small group.

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.  Think for instance of those who raise the question “How many men were possessed with demons at the country of the Gadarenes?”  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 know there are many great spiritual things I am thankful for.  But I’m also thankful to God’s common grace in other things as well such as the relative freedom the United States have compared to other parts of the world.

I watched many times this video of the fleeing North Korean defector for the last twenty four hours.  I watched it because it was quite dramatic.  And since this is near Thanksgiving it left me grateful for God’s grace and mercy that I’m in a country where I’m not on the run away from a tyrant that’s out of control.

I don’t want to get too personal but both my parents have fled communism under some very dramatic circumstances.  This made me think about how evil communism is and also thankful to God that my life is so much better because of my mom and my father fleeing two different communist nations.

Happy Thanksgiving bible


Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

We are Thankful to God for many things–Salvation, a great Savior Jesus, the Church and His Election.

Among them include the privilege of blogging and all of you who have visited our blog and shared with us your life and doctrine!

Two posts on Thanksgiving devotionals worth by two of our friends that are worth sharing:

THANKSGIVING: Thank God for the Appointing of the Redeemer and His Gracious Condescension

This verse comes into mind concerning the duties of thanksgiving:

21 For even though they knew God, they did not [n]honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and[o]crawling creatures.

No doubt this verse shows a relationship between thanksgiving, idolatrous religion, and apologetics.

Here are two quick links to two short articles that I thought should lead the apologist to have a more deeper thanksgiving this time of the year.

1.) An Atheist Explanation of Thanksgiving by Chris Bolt.

2.) All Dressed Up and No One to Thank by John MacArthur.
