Science and the Bible, A series Intro

I teach a Sunday School class called REACT which is for young adults. Recently we have been doing a series on 'great questions about the Bible' and have looked at things like evolution, the 'lost' books of the Bible, and are currently talking about Pre-Adam theory.

I believe strongly that science and the Bible are not enemies. In fact, many things that have been proven THROUGH science were talked about in the scriptures BEFORE we even knew about them as a people. Before science was science, God was God and He established the laws of the universe, and the laws of science, long before mankind ever figured any of them out.

In my studies to prepare about the Pre-Adam theory lessons, I have come across a fascinating article, which is rather lengthy. I have going to break it into several parts and post it here for you to read.

I AM NOT POSTING THIS AS A DOCTRINAL POSITION OR UNDER THE BANNER OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH!!! I simply believe that it is well written and provides many good points for consideration. I will not even go so far as to say that I am in complete, 100% agreement with everything in it...however, if I only read or listened to those with who I agreed 100%, I wouldn't even read my Bible, for often I find my thinking contrary to His and in need of adjustment.

I believe this is an INTERESTING study and, while it doesn't have any effect on salvation or our eternal destiny, if we better understand the arguments people make against God and the Bible and know more about the evidence in support of it, then we are better equipped.

So again, this is not 'my position' or the position of Cross Points Church, it is simply an article that articulates an argument that I think merits some investigation and thought. Don't let it affect your faith in God or belief in His Word as the final authority, just read it with a grain of salt and be willing to ask questions. That's what the Bereans did when Paul taught, and its how we should live, too.

I hope you enjoy this article and series!

5 Fights Couples Have When Buying a House

When my wife and I bought our home in the Northern Kentucky area, it was quite an experience. We had a great Realtor® with whom I am now privileged to work. I can only imagine the things he must have thought about us, showing up to look at houses with our two young boys, talking about if a room was big enough...what was that smell...why would they put the switch over here...

Ah, those were the days!

Thankfully, we didn't actually fight (that I remember) about anything considering a house. We both had a concept together of what we wanted, and a price range. And outside of those things, I didn't care as long as she was happy. No really, I didn't! As long as I could have air conditioning and hot water, I was good!

However, that is not the experience everyone has.

Today, I am actually going to share a link that will take you to Realtor.com. The article was written earlier this year by Stephanie Barth, a writer, and contributor to several publications. She took this concept of…

Actually, thats not in the Bible

I don't often have much use for CNN as a news source, but this story by John Blake is so dead on in its point on Bible illiteracy, that I can't not share it! Its a bit long, but worth every moment it takes to read and consider! DK

(CNN) – NFL legend Mike Ditka was giving a news conference one day after being fired as the coach of the Chicago Bears when he decided to quote the Bible.
“Scripture tells you that all things shall pass,” a choked-up Ditka said after leading his team to only five wins during the previous season.  “This, too, shall pass.”
Ditka fumbled his biblical citation, though. The phrase “This, too, shall pass” doesn’t appear in the Bible. Ditka was quoting a phantom scripture that sounds like it belongs in the Bible, but look closer and it’s not there.

Ditka’s biblical blunder is as common as preachers delivering long-winded public prayers. The Bible may be the most revered book in America, but it’s also one of the most misquoted. Politicians…

When The Neighbors Don't Care

A home that isn't being maintained like others in the neighborhood can negatively affect your visual sense of appeal and in some extreme cases, even affect property values. It might be an overgrown yard, a fence in need of repair, excessive noise, unruly pets, paint peeling on the home or even a car or boat parked in front of the home that hasn't moved in weeks.

Most people want to be good neighbors and may be willing to correct an issue once it is brought to their attention. A practical, but possibly confrontational, solution is to contact the responsible person and describe your perception of the issue. However, they may not always agree with the same urgency and it might be necessary to seek other remedies.


An owner-occupant may be more sympathetic to the neighbors and willing to correct the issue. If you think the home might be a rental property, check with the county tax records to identify the owner. They may be unaware of the situation and welcome the…
