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…

Get Your Debt Under Control

Today's post is one that was sent to me from a Christian website I regularly get things from. Debt is such a huge issue and it cripples so many from being able to like the way God intends, so I wanted to share it with you. Maybe today you could use the inspiration!

At the end, be sure to check out the author info and, if you'd like to know more, see her website!

I had a dog once who, when I scolded him, would run and hide under the bed. He knew he'd done something wrong, and he thought that by hiding he wouldn't get into as much trouble. I think he figured if he couldn't see me then I couldn't see him, and he wouldn't get scolded any more.

There was just one slight problem. He couldn't fit under the bed. Only his head and front paws were hidden but his back half was in full view. He had put himself in the worst possible position but since he had buried himself under the bed he didn't know that.

It's human (and critter) nature …

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…
