Clear Biblical Truth in an Age of Spiritual Darkness

Bible Preservation: Part 2 The Written Language of Eden

Worden Park Face Carving

I have listened to many sermons and studied many articles and books about Old and New Testament textual history.

One of the things that continually puzzles me is why many supposed experts believe that written biblical texts were not created until the time of Moses. That, until then, the words of God were only passed by word of mouth for the thousands of years since Adam.

How does that make any sense?

Love’s Purest Joys Restored

Keuka Lake Sunset

One evening recently, my wife and I went to the local drive-in theatre. It has been a tradition for us to get there at least once every summer. It’s always a double-feature. So you are bound to get one good movie out of the experience.

And, if you are fortunate, have a nice evening under the stars. Which we did.

The movie was Christopher Robin. Which is the re-uniting of Winnie the Pooh and his friends with a grown-up Christopher Robin. It was very well done.

Without going into the details of the film, let me just say what really moved me. It was the relationship between Robin and Pooh. The deep love between a talking, stuffed animal and a man.

The innocence of the relationship between Christopher and Pooh caused me think about the nature of Heaven. Of the innocence and purity that awaits us there. Of the joy, the beauty and intimacy we will know with the Lord and with each other.

Bible Preservation: The Old Testament

Floating Branch in Clouds

In the synagogue, Jesus stood up and read from the book of Isaiah saying,                                           “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,                                                                                                                                    To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”                                                                                                                              (Luke 4: 14-30)

A few things to note here:

  1. Jesus read from the written words of God.
  2. He accepted these as the correct words of God.
  3. He demonstrated that these words were the pure, accurate, specific words passed down from the pen of Isaiah.
  4. He demonstrated His confidence in the way that the words of God were presented and maintained.
  5. He believed in the perfect preservation of the Old Testament.

The Fallacy of Biblical Criticism Pt 2: Back to Basics

Hampton Hills Path

Since writing The Fallacy of Biblical Criticism: Part 1, I’ve given a great deal of thought to how to proceed on this issue.

My concern is not with the foundation of my belief but with how to honestly approach this so that the reader gains more than my own personal cheerleading effort to promote the Textus Receptus and the KJV.

In order to justify the time you invest when reading these articles.

The Rest That Remains

 

Roaring Falls Creek

“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.”  (Hebrews 4:9)

One of the greatest moments of my life was when I first discovered the reality of God’s Rest for the believer.

This occurred about 6 years after I first trusted Christ. This was that wonderful moment when I first experienced the joyful reality of Christ as my Sanctification.

What Will You Leave Us This Time?

Red Storm Clouds

O, very young, what will you leave us this time?” (Cat Stevens)

None of us will become any more enlightened than the sources we seek for truth. Nor will we become any more wise than those whom we trust to tell us the truth.

Trust is a choice.

We’ve talked about this before. Nothing new here.

But it keeps coming back to me. Like a wild call, deep in the forest, that continues to echo back through the hills and the canyons.

It is blatantly obvious that a vast segment of the American public has chosen to follow the popular media as their source for truth. Much of this country has checked their collective brains and souls at the door; freely giving a relatively small group of elitists control over their future.

The Simple Truth

Haceta Head     

“For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.                                                                                        Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?                                                                  For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. ”                                                                             (I Corinthians 1:19-21)

The Bible is written so that the simple as well as the intellectual man can understand it. For each of these men, it is not his mental prowess that allows him to grasp the deep things of God; saving faith is contingent upon his willingness to humble himself before God’s word.

Men of all types are forced to do business with the word of God. It is just a question of which stumbling block they will encounter in walking the path toward truth. “For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom; But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness.”  (I Corinthians 1:22-23).

The wisdom of this world is revealed by the level of value that men place upon education itself. And by one’s motivation in seeking awards and degrees in pursuit of higher knowledge. At the end of the journey, however, there is no guarantee that the most advanced in that arduous pursuit will actually become wise men or wise women.

At least not wise from God’s perspective.

A Conservative in the Woods

If a conservative is walking in the woods alone, and a tree falls, will the Progressives, who weren’t there to hear it or see it, still blame him?

A God-Removal Program

 

Meerkat Poses for His School Photo

If you ever visit a Natural History museum, you will have a religious experience. It will be in the form of an unrelenting religious catechism.

This religious indoctrination attempts to explain the origin of the earth, of man and the universe from a purely naturalistic position. In other words, without any supernatural influence. Specifically, without God.
