The Olivet Discourse
Written by Michael Gowens   
Monday, 16 January 2012 13:05

Excerpt from 'A Study of the Life of Jesus from The Gospel of Luke' by Michael L. Gowens

Chapter 41

Lu 21, together with Mt 24 and Mr 13, records our Lord's prophetic sermon to His disciples on the Mount of Olives. The variations in the three accounts of the Olivet Discourse are complementary not contradictory. Each records different parts of the same sermon and a comparison of the three reveals a comprehensive picture of Jesus' message. Luke's account is arguably the most conducive to a Gentile audience.

It is important to distinguish between what old preachers called "the two functions of the Holy Spirit."

1 John 5:4-5 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Bible Study or Entertainment

This era of technology has give many advances in multiple areas. We are certainly blessed too have such an abundance of resources and commodities. Whereas this is certainly a blessing, I fear that often it takes our minds away from growing in grace to being entertained. Many times when in fellowship with brothers and sisters I have observed that my conversation has often been on secular things.

To YOU is the Word of Salvation Sent
Written by Ben Winslett

To whom was the word of salvation sent? "Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent." - Acts 13:26

Notice what happened on the following Sabbath from the same chapter: "And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed."

This shows that salvation is necessary BEFORE one can receive the preached gospel. God must first give life. This evident by the fact that these people were:

1) Already God-fearing people, which unregenerate men are NOT. - Romans 3:18

2) Ordained to eternal life. They were elected, or chosen, by God from before the foundation of the world.

Now, how did Luke, the writer of Acts, know that these men were ordained to eternal life? Was a giant "E" stamped on their foreheads?? No, he knew because they received the word with gladness! While the gospel does not bring eternal life, it does bring life and immortality TO LIGHT. - 2 Timothy 1:10

Do Similarities in Brain Development Prove Evolution?
Written by Ben Winslett

I was flipping through a photogallery on Fox News' website while enjoying my morning coffee and noticed a bit of evolutionist philosophy in one of the slides. The gallery was supposedly the "best Science Photos of the Week." Science, eh? Sounds neat. I love true science and am always eager to check out pictures of scientific findings, especially astronomical.

Well, as you would expect, the gallery was a mixture of science and religion (not ours, but the religion of evolution). It is laughable that in one slide there was a picture of Saturn (true science, observable); and in another slide there was an artist's painting of a Plesiosaur some so called "millions of years ago." I didn't realize the imagination of an artist was science...silly me.

So then I came to a slide about the development of the brains of premature babies [See the slide here]. The Caption under the photo was as follows:

"A study undertaken to help with abnormal brain development in premature babies has revealed evolution's imprint on the human brain. Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that the human brain regions that grow the most during infancy and childhood are nearly identical to the brain regions with the most changes when human brains are compared to those of apes and monkeys."

Evolution's imprint?

According to this logic, because the same regions of human and ape brains develop in like order, this proves that men evolved from apes. Hmm, or does it? Maybe this only proves that men and apes had the same designer?

The internal combustion engine on my 1985 Suzuki Quadrunner has a piston and spark plug that fires, igniting the fuel in the cylinder to push the piston downward. The internal combustion engine in my 2006 Uplander has 6 pistons and spark plugs that fire, igniting the fuel in each cylinder, pushing their respective pistons downward. Does this mean my 2006 Uplander evolved from a 1985 Suzuki? No, it means they were based upon a common design: The internal combustion engine.

Here is another example. A 2006 Pontiac Montana and a 2006 Chevrolet Uplander share many common parts and even the same basic design. Does this indicate that one of these automobiles evolved from the other? Does it indicate they have a common ancestor? Why, no, not at all. It indicates they had a common DESIGNER: General Motors.

Similarities found between the development of human brains and ape brains do not indicate evolution, they indicate a common designer. That Designer is Jesus Christ, the Lord of Glory.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.- John 1:1-3


 
The Superior English of the KJV
Written by Ben Winslett   
Monday, 26 September 2011 10:08

The KJV's English is superior to modern Bible versions in that it contains singular and plural pronouns (thee and thou, ye and you) and also first, second, and third person verb tenses (believe, believest, believeth). Modern versions lose the ability to communicate contextual information through the watering down of the language.


EXAMPLE: And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. Luke 22:31-32


Notice the usage of singular and plural pronouns. Satan desired YOU (plural - all of the disciples) to sift YOU as wheat. Christ prayed for THEE (singular - Peter) to strengthen the brethren.
