Joe Biden Is Right

I think it is telling that in the perfect Garden of Eden, created by God himself, he commands Adam to work and creates Eve as a help mate to help him work.

“The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” Genesis 2:15

Eden is a model for our perfect relationship with God. If we want to think about the new heavens and the new earth, we should look to Eden. And we see we have tasks. We have work. There is something soul dignifying about work. Work provides us a sense of self-worth. Work provides us a purpose. Work provides us a means to help ourselves and through our independency we are able then to feel a need to help others.

Why Your Favorite Sin Is Not Suddenly Okay

Christians accept the nearly 2000 year old doctrine of progressive revelation, or what may better be referred to as incremental revelation. In the Bible, the God who seems aloof and genocidal slowly reveals the nature of His relationship between Him and us and between each of us.

The God who demands Israel wipe out its enemies is the same God who commands us to turn the other cheek in the New Testament. He is the same God who commands we love one another and is the same God who died on the cross that we might live. He did not change. He just, over time, revealed more fully His expectations of us.

Happy Easter

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.

And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.

And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.”

And they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.

Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.

But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.

Luke 24:1-12 (ESV)

Happy Easter to each and every one of you.
