Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 2000) from Nuggets:

If there were no Trinity, there could be no Incarnation, no objective Redemption, and therefore no salvation; for there would be no one capable of acting as mediator between God and man. – Unnamed Theologian quoted in “2002 Surprising Things About God and the Bible”

  1. Mathematical Challenges to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution – YouTube – Based on new evidence and knowledge that functioning proteins are extremely rare, should Darwin’s theory of evolution be dismissed, dissected, developed or replaced with a theory of intelligent design? Has Darwinism really failed? Peter Robinson discusses it with David Berlinski, David Gelernter, and Stephen Meyer, who have raised doubts about Darwin’s theory in their two books and essay, respectively The Deniable Darwin, Darwin’s Doubt, and Giving Up Darwin (published in the Claremont Review of Books).: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noj4phMT9OE

  3. Render to God – It’s time to make a shift. Blending into the world around us is no longer an option for the church. The culture rejects the Christian worldview and won’t be appeased by anything short of total ideological surrender, so it’s time for us to get counter-cultural.: https://www.str.org/w/render-to-god

  5. How An Atheist Scholar Misleads Millions Of People – YouTube – (I think everyone should listen to this) Bart Ehrman has convinced more people to reject the Christian faith than almost anyone alive today. But he has done so largely through being very misleading. I’m going to provide some solid examples of this as it relates to the crucifixion of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark because I think there is a lot of benefit in dealing with misleading claims about the Bible. I’m doing a lot of apologetics related stuff here at the end of this series on the Gospel of Mark and I hope you find it faith building and inspiring!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2ne3ndnVQk

  8. Here’s the question: Does faith save you? To help you think carefully about the answer, let me suggest an illustration. Pretend for a moment that you are a diabetic on the verge of diabetic coma. Pretend also that I present you with a hypodermic syringe and a small vial that I said was insulin. Would you trust me to give you an injection to save your life? I think you already see the thrust of illustration. my First, you know (or at least have heard) that the Bible teaches salvation by faith. Second, the illustration shows a clear contrast between mere belief and active trust the point I’ve just been making). You already believe that insulin can give you relief. But you remain in danger until you take a step of faith and actively entrust yourself to my care. So I suspect you would take me up on my offer. If you did, however, you would be dead. Here’s why: All the sincerity of your childlike trust could not change the fact that the vial in my illustration does not really contain insulin, only saline. You had genuine faith, to be sure- fiducia, trust, belief in action. But you would be dead, nonetheless.: https://www.str.org/w/truth-is-a-strange-sort-of-fiction-the-postmodern-turn-part-2
  9. Centuries after Christ: Was the New Testament written long after Jesus?: https://carm.org/the-bible/was-the-new-testament-written-hundreds-of-years-after-christ/

“You will all fall away,” Jesus told them, “for it is written: ” ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’ But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.” Peter declared, “Even if all fall away, I will not.” “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “today–yes, tonight–before the rooster crows twice you yourself will disown me three times.” But Peter insisted emphatically, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.” And all the others said the same. – Mark 14:27-31

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 1800) from Nuggets:

If religion, or sincerity, or doing our best cannot save you and me, then how can any of those things save someone else? Either Jesus rescues us by taking the punishment for our sin on Himself, or we are not saved and we have to pay for our own crimes. Its no more complicated than that. – Greg Koukl

(Greg Koukl): https://www.str.org/w/street-tactics-part-5

“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life. ” Matthew 25:46

Good morning friends,

Here is a random quote (of over 1700) from Nuggets:

All I am in private life is a literary critic and historian, that’s my job…And I’m prepared to say on that basis if anyone thinks the Gospels are either legends or novels, then that person is simply showing his incompetence as a literary critic. I’ve read a great many novels and I know a fair amount about the legends that grew up among early people, and I know perfectly well the Gospels are not that kind of stuff. – C.S. Lewis

The science of climatology is in an early stage of development, so it is difficult to be certain how serious the risk of climate change is. Many politicians and climatologists say that it is time to take immediate, radical actions, with little regard for the consequences of those actions. However, when the small amount of data that we do have is put into a longer-term perspective, panic does not seem warranted. Two things are certain: the global temperature has been rising slowly for about 400 years, and we must take Gods command to care for the earth seriously.

At the command of Festus, Paul was brought in. Festus said: “King Agrippa, and all who are present with us, you see this man! The whole Jewish community has petitioned me about him in Jerusalem and here in Caesarea, shouting that he ought not to live any longer. I found he had done nothing deserving of death, but because he made his appeal to the Emperor I decided to send him to Rome. But I have nothing definite to write to His Majesty about him. Therefore I have brought him before all of you, and especially before you, King Agrippa, so that as a result of this investigation I may have something to write. For I think it is unreasonable to send on a prisoner without specifying the charges against him.” Acts 25:22-27

In prayer I am lifted above the frowns and flatteries of life, and taste heavenly joys; entering into the eternal world I can give myself to thee with all my heart, to be thine for ever.

He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, Ephesians 2:17-19

Bad Analogies for the Trinity

As leaders in youth ministry, there are times when we all probably have to address the Trinity with the kids.  It may come up while we’re teaching the lesson, or a child may ask a question about it.  This video is a great little funny cartoon put out by “Lutheran Satire” and features 2 Irish characters Donall and Conall talking with St. Patrick about the Trinity.  Even though it is a cute and funny little video, it teaches a great message, and as leaders, encourages us not to use these bad (heretical) analogies for the Trinity.  I think the video is appropriate for showing to kids – especially in the 3rd to 6th grade age range (it has some big words).  Here are the bad analogies featured in the cartoon:

Analogy for the Trinity Heresy of this Analogy
Like Water (3 forms: Liquid, Ice, Vapor) Modalism
Like the Sun (the star, the light and the heat) Arianism
Like 3 leaf clover (shamrock) Partialism
Like 1 man who is husband, father, employer at the same time Modalism
Like 3 layers of an apple (or hard-boiled egg) Partialism

Have you used any of these analogies?  I know I have, but I won’t anymore!

Here is the video (3 min 49 seconds):

 

So, the recommendation is that we should just stick to the definition of the Trinity – 1 God, revealed in 3 Persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  If it was “1 God in 3 Gods” or “1 Person in 3 Persons”, that would be a contradiction.  But the Trinity (1 God in 3 Persons) is a mystery, not a contradiction.

Blessings to you all

Who does not know all these things? “I have become a laughingstock to my friends, though I called upon God and he answered — a mere laughingstock, though righteous and blameless! Men at ease have contempt for misfortune as the fate of those whose feet are slipping. The tents of marauders are undisturbed, and those who provoke God are secure — those who carry their god in their hands. Job 12:1-6
