Review: Richard Dawkins

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.

The Gospel and Free Speech on College Campuses

Evangelizing on the campus can be mighty difficult, these days… But our friend SlimJim was up to the challenge.    –LD

The Domain for Truth

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.

Resolving 30 Bible Contradictions from Jesus’ Final Week to His Ascension

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

The Domain for Truth

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:

Bible Absurdity? How to be a Good Christian according to Jacob?

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

The Domain for Truth

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…

Three Anticipation of Christ and the Gospel in Ezekiel

From our friend SlimJim’s blog, “The Domain for Truth.” We are not alone.   –LD

The Domain for Truth

An important theme in Presuppositional apologetics is the need to evaluate things from a Christian worldview that is informed by God’s revelation.

I believe something similar to that is also helpful in evaluating what’s going on in the New Testament in light of Old Testament anticipation of prophecies.

In this post we will look at three anticipation of Jesus and the Gospel from the book of Ezekiel.

Guest Post: King David’s Military Genius

For those of you who missed it when it was posted here, our friend SlimJim has put it up as a guest post. Thanks, Jim, for giving me the opportunity to have a guest post on your blog.  —LD

The Domain for Truth

Note: This is a guest post since presently I am overseas.  This is by  Μιχαήλ.  He is no stranger to some of you who read this blog.  His blog be found here.

As U. S. Marines on the evening of November 6, 2004, prepared for their assault on the terrorist stronghold of Fallujah, a chaplain anointed them with holy oil. Heavy-metal Christian music played on loudspeakers. A young marine stood up to read a verse from the Bible: how King David overcame the Philistines.

Physical Beauty without Good Works is Dead

From our friend “SlimJim,” The Domain for Truth blog. We are not alone.    —LD

The Domain for Truth

Our society emphasize so much of unrealistic physical attractiveness.  Think of what the media projects to us with ads, TV shows, celebrities, etc.

Sadly this affect the church as well.

Bible Contradiction? When did the transfiguration occur?

Our friend and fellow servant “SlimJim” resolves another supposed Biblical “contradiction.”

I’ve seen many Bible movies, but none of them ever attempted to depict the Transfiguration. I wonder why not.     –LD

The Domain for Truth

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: When did the transfiguration occur?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Six days after Jesus foretold his death.

““Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” The Transfiguration 17 Six days later Jesus *took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and *led them up on a high mountain by themselves. 2 And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light.“Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.” 17 Six days…

Bible Contradiction? How did Judas die?

Our friend “SlimJim” is doing great work out there. We are not alone.    –LD

The Domain for Truth

Previously I have dealt with some alleged Bible contradiction concerning Judas’ last moments before his death.   You might want to check out What did Judas do with the silver? and Who bought the potter’s field?

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How did Judas die?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

He hanged himself.

And he threw the pieces of silver into the temple sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself.” (Matthew 27:5)

He fell down and died.

(Now this man acquired a field with the price of his wickedness, and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his intestines gushed out.” (Acts 1:18)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
