Science & The Bible: The Missing Baby Steps

It seems like scientists always like to poke their noses into the Bible to explain how God “really” did things. Every now and then, we’ll get some sort of special on PBS “explaining” how God did the Ten Plagues through Moses, or we’ll find a documentary giving us the “inside scoop” on Creation.

Science tells us when the brain is formed, when the heart starts beating, what the […] […]

Effective Communication in a Facebook Era

Covenant Timeline

Here’s a timeline of the main Covenants in the Bible. I think it helps to drive home the fact that the Mosaic Covenant ended at Christ and that there are many other Covenants that are still in effect – some of which predate the Mosaic Covenant by thousands of years.
