Human Action

Human action can only stand on the moral principles of man or on the teaching of the Bible. If human action is justified by the precepts of man than we know the act is uncertain and precarious because the thoughts of man are uncertain and precarious. If human action is justified by the Bible, then […]

Essay #29 Deuternonomy

There are 959 verses in Deuteronomy. By my count there are over 125 verses, plus the entire 13th chapter, that warn the nation of Israel not be like the nations in Canaan. Deuteronomy can be broken into distinct sets of ideas:  What God has done for Israel, how Israel responded (both good and bad), how […]

Essay #19 Abraham’s World

Essay #19 Abraham’s World History is important.  Historians, not so much (my sincere apologies to an eminently qualified historian and friend, Mark Edwards.)
