New on UK Apologetics For September 2017


This is the new stuff:



* FROM THE EDITOR: I Am Harangued on the Trinity Doctrine!

(Nothing new here, people from the cults and sects love attacking me)


* ARTICLE: How Insight From a Wise Old Country Doctor Reveals Evolution's Fatal Flaw

(I really would like all to read this; there are important points here which you may require for counselling at any time)


* QUESTION: Can Christ Really Set Us Free From Every Sin? Sometimes I Worry...

(Unlike human political leaders, God keeps His promises!)


* QUESTION: But When Was 'The Faith' Actually Delivered?

(A slightly different sort of question)


* QUESTION: Where Did The Quote in James 4:5 Go? Is It Lost?

(Intriguing, but it seems there is not meant to be a specific quote here)


* QUESTION: How Could Zechariah and Elizabeth Be 'Blameless' Before God When All Have Sinned?

(We all occasionally use words or sentences in a slightly differing way, why should the Bible writers be any different?)


* QUESTION: How Long Will the Liberal Media Portray Christians as Simply 'Nice, Smiley' People But Not as People Who Would Make Any Serious Difference to Anything?

(Yes, I too find it offensive that the media portray us as kind, smiley people but not as a people which have an important message to deliver!)


* QUESTION: Can Robots - in the Future - Have Their Own Consciousness? Could They Destroy Mankind?

(Scientists are encouraging the construction of thousands - perhaps many thousands! - of 'robots.' Could robots eventually have a 'consciousness' and even turn on mankind?)





Another Look At Some Older Articles:

* AVOIDING THE 'VICTIM' MENTALITY

(I have been asked to re-introduce this article of mine of 2015; it made a big and mostly favourable impression when I wrote it, here it is again)


* THE DANGER OF TEACHING THAT CHRIST ONLY DIED FOR THE ELECT

(It can somehow sound 'right' and logical to say that whilst Christ did indeed die for the sins of mankind, He only really died for the sins of the elect, yet this is an error, we must be careful to uphold the correct Bible teaching; Christ did indeed die for all!)


* ARTICLE: THE TRUTH ABOUT 'SPEAKING IN TONGUES' AT LAST!

(From 2002. I have just been asked for permission for a preacher/teacher to quote parts of this article in a forthcoming YouTube video. I gave permission)


* QUESTION: HOW ON EARTH CAN YOU EXPLAIN OR JUSTIFY A SCRIPTURE LIKE PSALM 137:9?

(We really need to understand the full intents and purposes of the Psalms)


* QUESTION: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JOYCE MEYER MINISTRIES?

(Oops! Sometimes I just have to say how I feel!)


* QUESTION: IF JESUS IS GOD, HOW CAN HE BE 'THE FIRSTBORN'?


* QUESTION: WHY WAS THE GOSPEL OUTREACH TO THE GENTILES SO SLOW?

(Many have asked this question, but the truth is that God had a purpose in His timing)

Some Comments on Recent (and Older) Articles...


"...May I have permission to quote your article on 'speaking in tongues, the truth at last'? I want to quote parts of it on a YouTube video I am putting together."


"I appreciate your explanations regarding the nature and meaning of true faith especially the warnings about our our false efforts that lead us to paths that end up being confusing and or at worst being manipulative bargain hunters. In the final analysis understanding, believing, accepting, invoking not only Gods sovereignity and God's will unconditionally in the same way he loves us is what will save us as both Testaments say over and over again as your article annotates. Thank you!!!"


"...I am so grateful that the internet - despite the bad parts of it - has opened up a real opportunity for people to learn all about the Bible away from a church setting. As I note that you have written in the past, many modern people would no longer go into a church to ask a minister Bible questions."


"A few years ago you wrote an article, something about how we need to avoid being a victim, or avoid the victim mentality. Can you revive it in your next 'new articles email? I want to read it again."

(EDITOR'S REPLY: You will find it this month in 'Another Look at Some Older Articles')


"...I am learning so much. How can I ever thank you enough?"


"...My wife and I live in a very remote place, yet we can connect to the internet (mostly, but not always) and we are keen students of the Bible. Many thanks."


"...I love the way you explain things; you do it carefully, steadfastly and dilligently. I can always tell when the article is written by you because if I am going to be honest it is always more logical and clear; you are a real friend of good old-fashioned logic, of not assuming that people already know things."


"..You have led me away from my atheism. I now believe in God - no doubts at all. I am studying and I hope I am now on the road to becoming a Christian."

(EDITOR'S NOTE: If you are gradually becoming convicted of the truth, it is the work of the Holy Spirit of God - not me)
