I have a keen interest in Apologetic. That interest was seeded by Ravi Zacharias & Michael Ramsden at RZIM.
And, aided by others such as J.P. Moreland @ Biola University.
Ravi Zacharias can make anything sound good, plausible, and easy to understand and follow.
Michael Ramsden, can as well. And, there are so many things that I have learnt from him. The in-exhaustible list includes:
Reason for apologetic
- Most people when asked why are you a Christian will invariable end up digging into the Christian experience itself. That is, the actual experiences that led them to Christianity. He hypothesis that if the reasons are slanted towards mostly experiential, the deductive reasons might be lost
In the last few weeks, again, spurred by YouTube related videos I am starting to get more data on the reasoning behind Judaism.
As I mentioned in a previous posting, I was researching Jonathan Kahn, a Christian apologetic, and author of the “Harbinger” and “Mystery of Shemittah“.
As I do not know what a Shemittah means, courtesy of Google, I took a crash course:
- What is Shemittah
As soon as the Jews settled in the Holy Land, they began to count and observe seven-year cycles. Every cycle would culminate in a Sabbatical year, known as Shemittah, literally: “to release.”
Dave Mosher posted a blog entry at https://davemosher.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/heretical-harbinger-author-jonathan-cahn-who-is-he-and-what-does-he-really-believe/. And, he commented that:
“Thanks for all the great, detailed info, Dennis. I would tend to agree with much of the info you cited. A fellow I like that warned America is the late David Wilkerson – although many criticized him. Note – unlike Jonathan Cahn, Bro. Wilkerson stated specifically that he was not a prophet – although he did say in essence the Lord laid messages on his heart to prophecy… I just think Bro. Wilkerson was more biblically sound (and frankly more humble) than Cahn”
So I will say anyone who is looking a bit into Apologetic should be a bit prepared for labored lawyerly argument and occasional snippy remarks.
Rabbi Michael Skobac
I have learnt more about the Old Testament from Chuck Missler than anyone else.
This guy, Rabbi Michael Skobac, has a very good understanding of the Torah.
Here are some of what Skobac gladly shares:
