Congratulations, Jim! Of course, I thought you’d already been ordained several years ago–blame the content of your site for that. We need more like you–many more. —LD

I think it only fair to ask the producers of the Skeptic Annotated Bible, “So what do you guys have to offer, then?” Expect really silly answers.
Meanwhile we thank our friend, SlimJim, for answering the self-proclaimed “skeptics'” objections to the Bible.
I wonder how “skeptical” they are about socialism, Climate Change, etc. –LD
For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who owns the earth?
Here are the three answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:
“He blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth…Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have sworn to the Lord God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth,” (Genesis 14:19, 22)
“Moses said to him, “As soon as I go out of the city, I will spread out my hands to the Lord; the thunder will cease and there will be hail no longer, that you may know that the earth is the Lord’s.” (Exodus 9:29)
“Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My [a]own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine;

From SlimJim’s blog, The Domain for Truth–we could all stand to know the Old Testament better. –LD

How well do you know the Old Testament? If you are like most Christians you can improve on your knowledge of the Old Testament. In this book The World and the Word: An Introduction to the Old Testament three Old Testament scholars collaborated to write a helpful textbook on the Old Testament. Together these scholars have a combined experience of decades if not even a century worth of research, teaching and writing on the subject of Old Testament. Readers will greatly benefit from reading this title.

A very powerful post from our friend, SlimJim–a crisis that caused him to come very close to leaving the ministry. It’s hard to be turned into a target when you were trying as hard as you could to do what’s right.
We are not alone: the Lord is with us.
While looking back of my old post on this day from previous years I found this one that I wrote five years ago on this day: Urgent Unspoken Prayer Request for “SlimJim.” It flooded back of a lot of memory of my hardest week of ministry where I actually thought about quitting my church.
I could talk about it a little more now though I’m not revealing everything.

From our friend SlimJim’s blog, “The Domain for Truth”
I have to admit I was jarred to see the name “Richard Dawkins” and the phrase “Great Thinkers” on the same book cover. But Jimmy’s blog post makes it clear. Lots of food for thought here. –LD

No doubt many people today would have heard of atheist spokesman Richard Dawkins. What does a Christian and Reformed response to Richard Dawkins looks like? This work is a defense of the Christian faith that deals with Richard Dawkins by also beyond him in dealing with the subject of atheism. This book is part of the Great Thinkers series published by P&R Publishing and thus far of the three volumes (this work and the ones on Aquinas and Marx) I have read this one is by far my favorite one.

Evangelizing on the campus can be mighty difficult, these days… But our friend SlimJim was up to the challenge. –LD
For those who are not strangers of this blog you will know I do a lot of my evangelism offline and on college campuses. I don’t think I talk about my evangelism much but I do from time to time on here. In the post I have written “What are some ways you share the gospel locally using Apologetics? College Campuses Evangelism” and gave my account of an “Intellectually Bipolar Secular Humanist College Student on Sexuality.”
This morning I read Lee’s post on his blog titled “Wonderful News! 28 States Act to Restore Free Speech on Campus.” This was wonderful news for me to hear.
Most of the time my evangelism does not face any problems with authorities. But that doesn’t mean it never happen so the more clarity and laws there are protecting campus freedom of speech the better.

Our friend SlimJim continues his work of refuting supposed “contradictions” within the Bible. Rather amazing it’s lasted several thousand years, eh? But “skeptics” are only skeptical about God’s word. To man’s word they extend unlimited credulity. –LD
This last year I tried to put out more posts resolving Bible contradictions concerning the final week of Christ through His Ascension to add to the list I put out last year. It takes some time on my part to go through them to provide exegetically sound refutations; Lord willing I will add more to this lists next year. See my post I wrote on why refuting Bible Contradictions Takes Time. As of Resurrection Sunday 2019 I have responded to 30 alleged Bible contradictions that took place during the final week of Jesus’ life up to His Ascension. These posts are arranged below roughly in chronological order with additions added after last Resurrection Sunday labeled “NEW” in red:

Our friend SlimJim has hit the nail on the head today–don’t miss this one!
It’s humbling to realize that God is able to make use of us even while we’re sinners. –LD
For today’s post we will tackle an issue from the “Rational Wiki” which has an entry under “Jacob.” Its a wiki for those bent on skepticism and atheism. Under the section “How to be a Good Christian™ according to Jacob'” they wrote “Jacob is truly the best role model for all Christian family value types, especially those looking for any “out” for all those misdeeds.”
Then the page gives a list of “virtues:”
- Jacob has 2 wives (both cousins of his) and 2 lovers, and 12 kids. No wonder so many Christian leaders are confused about exactly how many women they should be making love to.
- Jacob understands that lies done in the pursuit of the “greater good” (at least his own greater good) are acceptable; he lies in order to gain his father’s blessing and the land given to the first born. In a rather elaborate lie that could not…
