mid-week apologetics booster (4-6-2023)

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 2600) from Nuggets:

Willing to appear openly to those who seek him with all their heart, and to be hidden from those who flee from him with all their heart, God so regulates the knowledge of himself that he has given indications of himself, which are visible to those who seek him and not to those who do not seek him. There is enough light for those to see who only desire to see, and enough obscurity for those who have a contrary disposition. – Blaise Pascal

  5. Letters to a Mormon Elder (full book online), by Dr. James R. White. Nearly everyone likes to read someone else’s mail. James White allows us to look over his shoulder as he writes a series of friendly and penetrating letters addressed to a Mormon elder who might be any one of the many he has met. He draws upon hundreds of hours of discussions with Mormon missionaries and dedicated members of the Mormon Church encountered through his work with Alpha and Omega Ministries. We urge you to peek over James’ shoulder and follow the vital truths he presents.: http://www.novus2.com/alphamin/LETTERS/MAINPAGE.htm
  6. Is God an Exalted Man? When I was meeting with Mormon missionaries, it was their view of God that was particularly grieving to me. I wanted them to know the God who is, was, and always would be God, who is not of the same species we are, who isn’t limited by a physical body, and who was always perfect, never sinned, and isn’t getting better (because such a thing wouldn’t be possible). But in this video by Aaron Shafovaloff, some Mormons explain why the very same LDS ideas about God that horrify me are actually encouraging to them. How can this be? The answer goes to the heart of the difference between the Mormon and Christian gospels.: https://www.str.org/w/is-god-an-exalted-man-#.W7Nmu2hKiUn

  14. Spirituality vs. Christianity – Creation Today – Are Religion, Christianity, and Spirituality all basically the same? If not, what’s the difference? Is there a pure form of Spirituality that can bring together all the religions of the world despite their differences? Or does the claim by Jesus Christ, I Am the Way make all other ways, including Spirituality, insufficient?
