I’m always appalled at some who are quick to call another Christian “Pharisee.” Especially when they relish attacking those whom they see as Pharisees as a means of virtue signalling before another audience they want to please or win over.

I’ve compiled all the posts for our series “Sunday Morning Motivations for Preachers and Teachers” here.  It was a devotional series I worked on after considering how many Pastors end up burning out.  It’s originally meant for pastors but teachers in churches were later also written in view of you as well!

In this post I want to discuss about how to get the most from the series.

Someone was asking me about this book and I thought I had a review of this work on the blog but somehow I haven’t posted it!

Richard Pratt. Every Thought Captive.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, August 1st 1979. 142 pp.

This book was written by Richard Pratt, the Old Testament professor out at Reformed Theological Seminary. Quite the well rounded professor, he wrote this work when he was much younger, for the purpose of training young Christians (high school age) in the defense of the Faith from a Van Tillian perspective. I appreciated Pratt’s effort of communicating Van Til’s school of apologetics in non-technical language. The thirteen lessons are perfect for sunday school material, and each lesson ends with several discussion questions. The book also has various drawings as visual aids, a plus for those who learn visually. The book also manage to critique popular non-Presuppositional apologetics in lesson nine, where Pratt provided a general yet gracious critique of Paul E. Little’s popular, “Why I Believe”. But the gist of the book was positive construction of the framework to engage in apologetics. The core of his apologetics methodology applied is found in lesson 11-13, and much of his attention is on the certainty-uncertainty dialectic found in the autonomous (what Pratt calls ‘independent’) man. The book close with an illustration of a hypothethical scenario of apologetics applied.

I just saw Huffington Post had a recent piece written on their front page for their religion column titled “Former Mayor Of Hell Rewrites Bible To Make It Really, Really Gay (NSFW).”  It has the above picture as its main picture to get people to click on it from the religion column.

Basically the article was about a guy making a mockery of the Bible.  You know it is bad when it has to be labeled NSFW which means it is not safe for work.  It’s essentially giving blasphemy against the Bible a platform on a national leftist website and the feel of the article is it was written and shared to make readers laugh.  For a website that talks a lot about fake news, one wonders if this piece that is more fitting for the Onion gets front and center stage as a news coverage where a Youtube comedian is quoted from his childish tweets all to get readers to laugh while the Huff Post writer drops his own lines alluding to the Bible.

I just wonder if Huff Po religion does the same thing with the Quran or with Islam in general like how they post things on the Bible and Christianity…or if there’s a double standard with the editors’ decision of what they select.  Not that I’m encouraging people to desecrate the Quran but I wonder would the Leftists over at Huff Post put similar pieces in content, tone and attention with the Quran?
