A Creation Skit

I think I have a future in writing Sunday School Skits. I think I’ll call my publishing company “Skits Afrenia”.


MOSES: Hello kids!!

KIDS: Grandpa Moses! Grandpa Moses! It’s been so long since we’ve seen you!KID1: Ooooo – your face is glowing! Can I touch it?KID2: Better not. You might die!!KID3: Grandpa! Did […]

Biblical Sevens

There are a number of lists and events in the Bible that show up in sevens. This is a partial list.

Earth/water. Light. Light separated from dark.Sky. Water separated from water.Earth. Water separated from earth. Vegetation.Sun, moon and starsBirds and fishLand animals and manRest

Creation and Time

The fundamental properties of the universe (space, time and matter) are referenced in the first verse of the first chapter of the first book of the Bible: “In the beginning (Time), God created the heavens (space) and the earth (matter).” Genesis 1:1. Indeed, in the Hebrew Bible, the very first word is “התחלה” which […]

Was Jesus Silent On Homosexuality?

Pro-gay people will frequently claim that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality. His silence, they insist, is supposed to mean that a) He has no problem with it, and b) everyone else should be silent about it.

If you’re a self-interested speed-reader, you’ll find precious little in the Gospels about homosexuality. But so what? Jesus […]

A Tale of Two Books

Consider the following hypothetical:

On Day1 of Creation, God created light, separated it from night, called one ‘Day’ and the other ‘Night’. All in a day’s work.

Suppose an angel came along at that time and said “Lord – You know all things. Please – write for me a book of […]

The Fall and The Curse

It’s worth considering the fact that there is a distinction between The Fall (Gen 3:1-13) and The Curse (Gen 3:14-24).

Here’s what I mean:

The Fall (The instant Adam & Eve eat the fruit):

Man is cut off from God Man’s eyes are opened Man and woman feel shame due to their nakedness Adam and […]

From Adam to Moses…

Bible Trivia: If Adam wrote a book on his life, his memoirs, how the universe was Created, and more, it’s only reasonable to believe that he would have passed this book on to his kids. Or great-grand kids. And it’s only reasonable to conclude that this would have made its way to Moses.

So… given […]

Creation: Just Add Water??

If you’re reading this page, it’s probably because you believe that there is a God and that He’s all powerful – so powerful that He has the ability to create an entire universe. After all, that’s precisely what He did. If you subscribe to an Old Earth view of creation, I’d like to pose two […]

Stones of Sodom

While hopping around Jordan with Dr. Dave, he brought our attention to “ancient Sodom” (click here for Google map), where we all got out and took a look around. Yes, Sodom as in “Sodom and Gomorrah” from Gen chapters 14 and 19.
