Vern Poythress. Christian Interpretations of Genesis 1.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, September 20th, 2013. 32 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is another work in the “Christian Answers to Hard Questions” series published by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing.  Here the author Vern Poythress looks at how Christians should interpret the first chapter of Genesis.  Although the author is a New Testament professor I think Poythress is more than capable to write on this subject given his expertise in hermeneutics, linguistics, science and theology.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Purpose: Today we shall see the three seasons in our lives in which Christ is our shepherd so that we would trust in Him and have Him as our Shepherd today.

The Lord is my shepherd during ordinary times (v.1-3)

The Lord is my shepherd during difficult times (v.4-5)

The Lord is my shepherd for eternity (v.6)

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

Chapter 4

The questions in this post will be for chapter 5 of the book.  Each question is followed by page numbers in parenthesis where the answer can be found.

One of the news I read this morning is “Senator Al Franken Kissed and Groped Me Without My Consent, And There’s Nothing Funny About It.”

I have been seeing the last few days the Left being up in arms against Roy Moore.  I saw some friends on social media rant against Republicans concerning that.  But the latest news reveal its not just Republicans and we should recall that there are also Democrats as well: Al Franken, Anthony Weiner, Bill Clinton, etc.

These days it seems like every day there’s news of someone groping someone in the past.  It is hard to keep track of it.  For instance I was surprised to read Tom’s blog post, “Paragons of virtue?” where I learn that George H.W. Bush also have several women come forth with accusations.

My point is not partisan politics.  The point I want to make is spiritual.
