Planet X

David Meade has written several self-published books and his latest predict catastrophic events that we will experience here on earth due to Planet X. According to the Washington Post, “On Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017, a constellation — a sign prophesied in the Book of Revelation — would reveal itself in the skies over Jerusalem, signaling the beginning of the end of the world as we know it. Meade believes that by the end of October, the world may enter what’s called a seven-year tribulation period, a fairly widespread evangelical belief that for seven years, catastrophic events would...

Can we trust the New Testament?

Can we trust the New Testament?

This morning at church my pastor mentioned apologetics multiple times. To me, that topic acts as coffee in my system! He also mentioned some, what he called God questions. One of which was if the New Testament can be trusted. I went home considering writing a post on the topic since I had not done one in a while. Then later this afternoon my daughter Beth shared in a text to me that a friend of her’s was questioning how accurate the bible can be if it was translated so many times through so many different languages. Beth pointed out that it is just one language to English. For example,...

What does it mean to love as God does?

What does it mean to love as God does?

I was asked this question not long ago and felt it was a good question to be able to answer because in my life I want to be able to recognize God in me, loving others. In recent months I have begun to realize that loving as Jesus calls us to love is not only painful but can be sacrificial. This is especially true when you love others and they do not love you back. Jesus experienced this when He drew near to Jerusalem. In Luke 19:41 we see He wept for the city and the people within knowing fully they were going to accuse, reject, and crucify Him. He was foretelling the destruction of...

Demanding Proof

Demanding Proof

21 – A disciple of Christ, Thomas, was a skeptic. He walked with Jesus during his time on earth and physically witnessed with his own eyes certain miracles performed by him such as raising Lazarus from the dead and so forth. However, after the crucifixion, Jesus supposedly rose three days later and Thomas did not believe it was truly him despite being told, prior to the incident by Jesus, that he would rise again in three days. Thomas required physical proof. Jesus allowed him to touch him and feel the wounds in his body to offer that proof to Thomas. Why doesn’t god extend the same proof to...

Crooked Lines

19 – If, in the beginning, there was only God and he created everything, why would he create angels that had the propensity to defy him? This very fallacy led to Lucifer challenging his authority because he desired to share the same power as God. This led to the rise, or fall depending on how you look at it, of Satan, the most notorious enemy of God and his followers. Failed, again! 20 – Why would you trust ‘God’s plan’ given his track record of many failures? These two questions, including #18  deal with the idea of creating creatures who have a free will is somehow a failure on God’s...

Free Will and Temptation

Free Will and Temptation

If God is omnipotent, why does he not just show himself to all of us, all at once, thereby ending this game of free will and temptation? This is number 18 of the 50 questions Christians can’t answer. The first thing that came to my mind was Romans 1:20. “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Even if God was to show Himself what makes you think that you or anyone else for that matter, would...

Has God Failed?

Has God Failed?

If God is perfect and his creations are perfect, why did he fail several times? He had to impose suffering upon the human race because Adam and Eve defied him by eating of the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Failed! He had to flood the planet 1,600 years later wiping out all but eight humans. Failure! He had to confuse human language after Nimrod and the Tower of Babel incident so that they could not effectively communicate with each other. Failure! How is this a track record of a perfect being? This is number 17 of the 50 questions Christians can’t answer. I heard a...
