I don’t get it

I really don’t get it at all.

So some woman went on a rant on Salon, whatever that is, about how God could not have written the Bible – and she committed grievous writing error number one, writing about something you don’t know anything about.

Kind of like me writing something about Basketball. I don’t know anything about it.

She claimed that there was errors, contradictions, insufficient “fact checking”. etc., etc., etc.

Apparently, if she’d researched the Bible instead of being part of the liberal “self congratulating” crowd, she’d have found um… the Bible has a better track record than secular history books. Secular history books frequently have to be re-written, because some fact that supposedly contradicts the Bible is suddenly found to be um… wrong.

Contradictions in the Bible. Normally, when I meet these people, I’m tempted to ask for some. Often, they don’t have any, they’re just POSITIVE there’s errors in the Bible.

Now,the problem with atheists and Evernote is that you can find a list of supposed contradictions, clip that to Evernote, and pass it on as if it was factual and verified. And all of the supposed contradictions have been answered long ago.

The biggest problem she claimed was that the narration made it impossible to understand the Bible.

That’s not a narration problem, but a heart problem.

1 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV) But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

If it’s impossible to understand the Bible, then explain how there are so many Christians who read it, and all come to the same conclusions about what they just read?

It’s very simple – the same God who wrote the Bible explains it to us. Because you reject that God, you won’t let Him explain it to you.

That’s why.


Sermon of the Week

In November, I toyed yet again with the idea of putting up a sermon every week.

Alas, in December things really got busy at work, and I found myself starting to work a lot of six day weeks. since I write most of these on Saturday and Sunday mornings, I was unable to get this done.

Well, things are slowing a LITTLE at work.

Of course, I could get caught up and get ahead if everyone were to write to the Bible college of your choice and recommend me for a professorship Winking smile

Here’s the deal – in the past I’ve asked for people to leave comments about “Who’s a good teacher?” I’ve got about four or five I listen to. I can’t put up links to teachings by Armenianists or Calvinists. They’ve got to be good teachers, Independent Baptist, King James Only.
