How Could Jesus Be God If He Didn’t Know This One Date?

Jesus told His disciples that He would be coming back to this Earth and when He does “every knee shall bow and … every tongue will confess” that He is Lord. But nobody, not even Him, knows when that will happen?

It turns out in scripture that only God the Father knows when God the Son, Jesus, will return at His second coming, but that raises a question: If Jesus is fully God and fully man, why doesn’t He know when He’s returning?

Great question, according to crossexamined.org’s Dr. Frank Turek, who in this video not only responds to that question but includes an adaption of that famous Abbot & Costello”Who’s on First” routine that will put a smile on your face:

 

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Here’s What Political Conspiracies Like Watergate Tell Us About Jesus’ Disciples

Conspiracy theories are becoming more common these days in the political debate in Congress, the national media and in public forums across the nation, digital and otherwise.

The Watergate coverup by President Richard Nixon and half a dozen of his chief aides was a real conspiracy and it cost him his presidency when he became the only American chief executive ever to resign the office.

Chuck Colson was one of the Nixon conspirators who went to jail. He became a Christian in great part because of something he learned from the Watergate conspiracy about the reliability and credibility of the disciples of Jesus Christ in their testimony about His life, death and resurrection.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Even If Macro-Evolution Is True, God Is Still Necessary

What if evolution is true, both in terms of micro and macro changes over time? If it is, does that mean there is no room for the Christian God as creator of the universe and everything in it, including humans and animals?

Cross-examined.org’s Dr. Frank Turek says no, there still must be an explanation for the existence of the first molecule. Evolution properly understood is an explanation of how God did it, not an argument against the existence of God in the first place.

Turek was asked about this issue earlier this month during a presentation, noting that he’s an advocate for micro-evolution, but stops short of the “molecule to man” version of macro-evolution. Even so, he explains why God is essential regardless.

THINK ABOUT THIS: Are ‘Thoughts And Prayers’ Appropriate When A Gunman Kills And Maims?

It seems to happen every time now when there is a mass shooting incident like those that just days ago killed and injured dozens of innocent people in an El Paso Wal-Mart and a Dayton night spot.

Democrats demand new gun controls and Republicans offer their “thoughts and prayers for the tragic victims of this latest horrible nonsense.” There is a growing chorus on each side that the other’s response is not appropriate, but the Democrats’ criticism of “thoughts and prayers” as inadequate seems especially strong in the wake of the most recent tragedies.

Who is right? Fox News’ religion correspondent Lauren Green hosted an August 15 discussion of the issue between cross-examined.org’s Dr. Frank Turek, and Michael Wear of Public Square Strategies.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Who’s Right About Sex Before Marriage, Hannah Or Luke?

Not being one who follows ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” I wasn’t aware of the epic blow-up that occurred recently when Luke sort of asked Hannah if she would remain celibate until marriage.

Thanks to Chrissy Clark of The Federalist, however, I not only know about it, I’ve also benefitted from reading the author’s interesting take on who was right and who was wrong in what was an extremely revealing argument that was hardly flattering to either of the participants.

Luke and three other suitors accompanied Hannah to Greece. Luke ended up getting the boot ride in the limo at the end. Here’s Clark’s summary of the situation: Continue reading “WHAT DO YOU THINK? Who’s Right About Sex Before Marriage, Hannah Or Luke?”
