mid-week apologetics booster (10-20-2022)

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 2300) from Nuggets:

According to the New Atheism, “In the beginning were the particles. Through the combined forces of chance and law, the particles became complex. Eventually the particles formed solar systems, planets, and rocks. Then the particles became alive and formed trees, animals, and people.”  – Is God Just a Human Invention and Seventeen Other Questions Raised by the New Atheists

  1. 9 Things You Should Know About the Council of Trent – one of these is that the Council issued a decree saying that, If any one saith, that the justice received is not preserved and also increased before God through good works; but that the said works are merely the fruits and signs of Justification obtained, but not a cause of the increase thereof; let him be anathema.: https://www-thegospelcoalition-org.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/9-things-you-should-know-about-the-council-of-trent/?amp=&_gsa=1&_js_v=a9&usqp=mq331AQKKAFQArABIIACAw%3D%3D#amp_tf=From%20%251%24s&aoh=16658721375486&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegospelcoalition.org%2Farticle%2F9-things-you-should-know-about-the-council-of-trent%2F

Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. Make a roof for it and finish the ark to within 18 inches of the top. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark –you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you. You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.” Noah did everything just as God commanded him. Genesis 6:11-22

Blessings to you all
