New on UK Apologetics For October 2018






* QUESTION: WHAT IS THE MEANING OF SONG Of SOLOMON 2:15?

(This was a fascinating question. What are "little foxes" all about?)


* QUESTION: DO WE CHRISTIANS HAVE A RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELVES FROM INJUSTICE IN THIS WORLD?

(We do, but we must know when we should not go too far; there is a time to let things lie and to accept things as they are, even if we suffer loss)


* QUESTION: DOES THE BIBLE ALLOW US TO 'CAST LOTS' IN OUR DAY?

(There are things here that we all need to understand correctly; please go through this)


* QUESTION: SURELY ACTS 3:6 IS AN EXAMPLE OF 'POSITIVE CONFESSION'?

(No, it is not; let us make sure that we all understand the difference)


* QUESTION: ARE THE JEWS CUT OFF FROM CHRIST?

(A vital question which you could be asked tomorrow - How will you respond to it?)



ANOTHER LOOK AT SOME OLDER ARTICLES:


* ARTICLE: CONSCIOUSNESS: AS BIG AN ENIGMA FOR EVOLUTIONARY SCIENCE AS EVER

(My article of 2015)

(From 2012)


* ARTICLE: IS THE CHURCH A BUSINESS? WHO ARE WE TO PLEASE?

(From Rodney E. Zwonitzer)

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


"...love your website and thank you for the amazing work you have done. Curious as to your thoughts on 2 Timothy 2:15, and Paul's call to the Gentiles. John's baptism was for the Nation of Israel, not the church, that is what my bible says. Should the body of Christ being doing what God spoke to Israel directly, or are we a separate entity, a called out people? And then would like to hear your thoughts on the Rapture please, I notice you don't cover anything on it. Many thanks, appreciate your time. In Christ,......(from Tanzania- East Africa)."

MY ANSWER:
Question One:
The Rapture

Question Two:
2 Timothy 2:15:
'Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.' (not sure what your question is on this, please clarify).

Question Three:
John's Baptism for Israel?
Not sure which Bible you are using but all baptisms are for the church which is another way of saying that a true Christian baptism is to baptize one into Christ and the Church, the church is now spiritual Israel. God has now concluded His dealings with the physical people of Israel (a record of which is in our Old Testament).

Question Four:
Should the body of Christ be doing what God spoke to Israel directly, or are we a separate entity, a called out people?

The Israel of the Old Testament has now become the spiritual Israel of the Church. Today we are under the New Covenant, not the old covenant which was concluded in the cross of Christ. There is no need for us to be concerned with matters which only pertained to Old Testament Israel. We now obey the instructions which Christ gave to the Church in taking the Gospel to the world. Yes, we are called and chosen for this purpose. God is not directly dealing with two groups of people as some teach, but His Church. God's dealing with the physical people of Israel concluded with the closing of the old covenant. This is clear from the teaching of the New Testament."
(EDITOR: I have sent this lady a much fuller answer).


"...Interesting, more than that I will not say."


"...My pastor is very impressed with your website..."


"The teaching here always raises questions about the teaching one has received in the past."
