The Divorce Dilemma: God’s Last Word on Lasting Commitment by John MacArthur is used in many Bible counseling training programs. The subtitle “God’s Last Word on Lasting Commitment” is consistent with the message that God hates divorce and intends for marriage to be a permanent covenant. However, the book is marred by the false doctrine of extreme predestination, which permeates every page, with many outright attacks on contemporary evangelicalism. The book ignores God’s laws about multiple wives and God’s protections for Continue reading Review: The Divorce Dilemma by John MacArthur
If we consider the sum total of all possible knowledge in the entire universe, either God knows everything or he is not God. If God does not know everything, then sometimes he might be wrong. If God does not know everything, then there might be another god who knows more than him. And, that god would be God. If God is God, then he is always right. How about you? Could you be wrong?
Does the Bible prophesy or deny aliens? The consistent message of sin, judgment, death, sacrifice, salvation, redemption, and life in the Bible has been given for thousands of years from Adam & Eve until today and from now on to forever. This message records the history of mankind. This message records the creation of the Earth. This message describes Adam & Eve’s sin in the garden of Eden. This message prophecies God’s promise of a redeemer to them. This message Continue reading What does the Bible say about aliens?
The controversy of the Bible, the sacred text of one of the world’s great religions, dating back over 6000 years. The Bible is a compilation of 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over more than 2200 years, in 3 different languages, on 3 different continents, with 1 consistent divinely-inspired theme of love and redemption for all mankind. But, the Bible is different than any other holy book because it claims to be divinely inspired by God. It is not a book written Continue reading The controversy of the Bible
After decades of theorizing and searching, scientists are reporting that they’ve finally found a massive reservoir of water in the Earth’s mantle — a reservoir so vast that could fill the Earth’s oceans three times over. Once again, the Bible was way ahead of them scientifically, even though no one understood the concept… 12 “I, Wisdom, live together with good judgment. I know where to discover knowledge and discernment. 28 I was there when he set the clouds above, when Continue reading Scientists just proved the Noahic flood is scientifically possible
God’s Not Dead is a great conversation starter. I’m not the target demographic, so I won’t bore you with what I thought. The great thing about “God’s not dead” is it can start a conversation that can lead to something important. Josh’s classroom arguments are engrossing, thought-provoking and well-reasoned. On the plus side, Josh offers a well-stated argument for the existence of God, saying wisely “You don’t have to commit intellectual suicide to believe in a creator.” (USA Today) In a Continue reading Movie: God’s Not Dead
This is a very complicated article that I can’t reprint here due to copyright issues. Please forgive this brief summary. I hope it encourages you to read the original article and think about this for yourself. We have already concluded that believing in evolution and believing in creation are both faith-based. I can’t prove or disprove creation to you any more than you can prove or disprove creation to me. However, we can ask, which one provides the best explanation. In that vein, Continue reading Physicists just proved evolution is impossible
In this post, I don’t want to influence your opinion of evolution. I just want you to consider that evolution is faith-based. If you believe evolution is true, have you personally ever seen the proof? If you believe evolution is true because you trust someone, or because you trust some organization, or because you trust anything, that is faith. Because… Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1) I am not saying faith is good and I’m not Continue reading The surprising proof that evolution is faith-based
Back in 1990, scientists determined that our universe started at a given point in a process they called The Big Bang. When those scientists made it to the top of that steep hill of knowledge and looked, they found creationists had been there all the time, sitting at the feet of God. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1) The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue Continue reading What is consciousness?
