Bible Contradiction? Who is the first and the last? — The Domain for Truth

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who is the first and the last? Here are the answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction: God ““Listen to Me, O Jacob, even Israel whom I called; I am He, I am the first, I am also the last.” […]

From our friend, SlimJim, who’s been whacking away at the Skeptic Annotated Bible.

Jesus said, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30). End of contradiction.

‘Jesus Said, “It Is Not for You to Know”‘ (2016)

Just before the risen Christ ascended to Heaven, some of His followers asked Him if now He was going to restore the kingdom to Israel. Now as in right now.

Jesus Said, ‘It Is Not for You to Know’

How many times did the Lord warn us that His return would take the whole world by surprise? What part of “It is not for you to know” don’t we understand? Really–as if the whole thing was only about setting up another kingdom in Israel. Like this time it’ll be different?

Christ’s business was the salvation of the entire human race, and only God the Father knows the timetable. Jesus said we would be taken when we least expect it, and urged us to live in such a way that we would always be ready for it.

But false prophecy has always been with us.

‘In Front of the Heavenly Tribunal’ (2015)

Remember, years ago, when hackers got into the files of the Ashley Madison Dating Service? Most embarrassing–a “dating service” set up to facilitate adultery.

In Front of the Heavenly Tribunal

Once upon a time even pagans knew there would be judgment after death. Unlike them, we have a defender and a savior, Jesus Christ the Son of God–without whom our sins would devour us.

But you can’t just keep pretending that they weren’t sins.

‘”Your God”? Really?'(2017)

How long did it have to rain on the rocks before they came alive?

Oh it rain on de rocks an’ de rocks come alive, doo-dah, doo-dah…

Come on, now–does anybody really, truly believe that?

I re-run this post from time to time for the benefit of new readers and because we’re always running into fools’ chatter about “your God” who doesn’t exist but they passionately hate Him anyway, and the Bible as nothing but fiction but all those things in it that never happened still drive them up the wall.

We really shouldn’t have handed our educational institutions over to them. To say nothing of the rest of our institutions.

God hears and God knows what we say, and that’s a scary thought.

Good thing we have a Savior! Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Noozie: Christ Was Not Perfect

I Have Played the Fool – New Hope International Ministries

At least a professional fool is funny. A noozie isn’t. Well, not intentionally, at least.

I do get tired of being lectured by idiots. Just because you’re an overpaid noozie doesn’t make you a theologian. Isn’t it bad enough that they lie about the nooze, putting words in people’s mouths that they never said, making it up as they go along because that’s their stupid “narrative”? But with liberals it’s never bad enough.

CNN nooze-squawker Don Lemon recently said Our Lord Jesus Christ was “admittedly”–where did that come from?–just a guy like you or me, and not perfect (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/don-lemon-cnn-theologian-says-jesus-admitted-he-was-not-perfect). Can I use the word “douchebag” to describe him?

And of course he never produces the scripture in which Jesus “admits” he’s not perfect. Are we supposed to take his word for it? The fact that there is no such scripture makes no dent in his towering ignorance.

As my high school math teacher, Mr. Gracchi, used to say, “Empty barrels make the most noise.”

There’s nothing in this barrel.

‘The Son of God Goes Forth to War’

The first time He came here was to shed His blood and be slain in atonement for our sins. The powerful, the wise, and the noble nailed Him to the cross. But when He comes again, it will be to judge the quick and the dead; and there are those who are high and mighty now will be like raw eggs thrown against the wall.

The Son of God Goes Forth to War, presented by Joe Stout: lest we forget that there’s another book to come.

‘Christ for the World We Sing’

We have no king but Jesus Christ.

Let’s assemble in spirit and belt out a tried and true hymn, Christ for the World We Sing. Performed in the video by the choir and congregation at St. Bartholomew’s Church, New York City.

‘Christ Shall Have Dominion’

The first time I ever posted this hymn, someone out there objected: he didn’t want Christ to have dominion.

But we have no king but Jesus Christ.

Sung by the congregation at Grace Community Church, San Antonio, Texas: Christ Shall Have Dominion.

‘He Could Have Called Ten Thousand Angels’

This hymn, sung by Blue Rock Mennonite Youth, retells the story of the Crucifixion–He Could Have Called Ten Thousand Angels. I find the older I get, the harder it is to contemplate the Crucifixion of Our Lord. What a world this is! that tramples down the holiest of all.

‘Conspiracy Baloney Aimed at Our Lord’ (2016)

“Scholars,” eh?

I thought you might enjoy the discussion which followed this post, two years ago. If you want interesting conversation online, you’ve come to the right place.

Conspiracy Baloney Aimed at Our Lord

I happened to be leafing through the latest issue of Biblical Archaeology Review last night. With Herschel Shanks retired as editor-in-chief, the new regime has filled the magazine with ads for books to Reputable Bible Scholars Inc. alleging there was no such person as Jesus Christ–or at best, he was just a nice guy who ran afoul of the Romans.

They are evangelists for atheism. And paganism.

What do they get out of it? Search me.
