Trump nominates Barr for AG, Nauert for UN ambassador

Published

on

Before leaving the White House for a planned speech in Kansas City, President Trump announced two nominations. William Barr will be nominated for Attorney General and Heather Nauert will be nominated for U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.

Neither were huge surprises as they were both considered frontrunners for their respective positions since Jeff Sessions resigned as Attorney General and Nikki Haley resigned as U.N. Ambassador.

The sons of God in Genesis 6 were not the sons of Seth (and Nephilim were really giants)

The sons of God in Genesis 6 were not the sons of Seth and Nephilim were really giants

There are two camps of hermeneutics about how to reconcile the strange verses in the beginning of Genesis 6. We would like to demonstrate that the popular one is distinctly wrong and that the less popular one often takes Bible scholars down the wrong path.

It’s easy to see why the early church was very averse to the proper interpretation. They didn’t want to scare those new to the faith off with strange discussions of evil angels coming down to earth to take wives of human women, so they came up with an alternative to the obvious interpretation to better fit their sensibilities.

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Genesis 6:1-2 (KJV)

The common interpretation is that the “sons of God” were the sons of Seth and that the “daughters of men” were the daughters of Cain. The phrase for “sons of God” in this verse, Bene Ha’elohim, is used many times in the Bible and always refers to divine creatures created by God. These were angels. That’s all there is to it.

For easy proof of this, we simply need to apply logic to a verse that follows.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Genesis 6:4 (KJV)

Sons of Seth that married daughters of Cain would not be able to yield giants (or as they’re called in other translations, Nephilim). Many of the earliest translations try to distort the words to fit their hermeneutics by saying that these weren’t really giants but were just really heroic but evil men. The 1599 Geneva Bible footnote says that “giants” could be interpreted as “tyrants.” This is false.

We go into much more depth on this topic and why many of the modern Bible scholars who are properly translating these verses tend to distort the truth in a dangerous way in our video.

Conspiracy Theory

Evidence points to some dinosaurs living beyond the extinction event

Evidence points to some dinosaurs living beyond the extinction event

It is, for all practical purposes, nearly impossible for the vast majority of people who have received a modern education to even consider the possibility that dinosaurs are not as old as we have been told. It’s a topic that I’ve avoided because the presuppositions are so powerful among the general population.

Today, I decided to tackle the topic with one purpose: to start a discussion with those who have an open mind. I’m well aware that most minds will be closed and there will be much more sarcasm than discourse, but ridicule from the indoctrinated masses is a small price to pay if just one person can hear this and decide to dig deeper into science and the Bible to have the truth revealed.

It’s been instilled in our minds as common knowledge that the dinosaurs died off 65 million years ago in the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event with the most prevalent alleged culprit being the impact of a comet or asteroid at Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. For the most part, anything that’s considered common knowledge can be sustained without anyone questioning the assumptions. For example, it was common knowledge based upon what was easily observable that the sun, moon, and stars revolved around the earth. That was finally debunked, of course, but scientific debate on the model of our solar system continued until the early 20th century.

A more recent example of common knowledge being wrong is the idea that acid caused by bad diet or stress is what causes ulcers. In 2005, Barry Marshall and Robin Warren won the Nobel Prize for Medicine by demonstrating that the vast majority of ulcers were caused by an infection of the bacterium H. pylori.

Now is not the time to debate young earth versus ancient earth, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that dinosaurs were around in the time of man. Even a brave segment of the secular scientist world has started questioning whether the extinction event killed off all of them based upon mounting evidence. There was even a formerly prominent professor who learned the hard way that bringing forth compelling scientific evidence of dinosaurs walking with men can earn people a quick entry onto the black list.

Over the centuries, intellectuals have had a difficult time having their worldviews shattered. The funny thing is that the existence of modern era dinosaurs doesn’t change much. It could mean that small pockets of the world were protected from the extinction event. One would not have to make huge adjustments to their worldview if this were the case which is why it’s so perplexing that they won’t even explore the possibility. It’s reminiscent of the persecution that Galileo received, only this time it’s not at the hand of the Christian church but rather at the hands of the church of science.

I want to go much deeper on the issue of why there seems to be reluctance at best and a systematic coverup at worst, but we’ll have to explore that on a future video. For now, I’d like to turn to a video we watched that gives a pretty interesting perspective. While I don’t agree with all of the conclusions or evidence, there’s enough good to make it appropriate for sharing.

Interview with Christopher Shaw

Interview with Christopher Shaw

I was given the opportunity to interview Christopher Shaw. He is the director of the upcoming movie, Church PeopleChurch People is “romantic comedy satire” about a celebrity youth pastor caught up in the marketing machine of his mega church. In the interview, Christopher discusses the redemptive story arc involving what is a sad reality within churches today.

But the journey leading up to this movie was no cakewalk. Christopher’s start came from making Youtube videos. He then built a network of Christian comedians on Facebook, most notably the relationship between he and Thor Ramsay, the writer and star of Church People. They finally began their working relationship at the 168 Film Festival back in 2010. During this festival, they produced the short Skip Listening in a short period of time, the entire process taking no more than 18 days. Skip Listening won accolades at the festival and so the two have continued working together ever since.

As a Director, Christopher appreciates a high quality film. This was his critique of faith based movies, however he emphasized his optimism for how much the category has improved over the years. Passion of the Christ, he says was a breakthrough in closing this disparity. Since then, a number of faith-based films have proven to be remarkable returns on investment. As I pointed out in the interview, Christian comedy, remains rather untapped in its potential, which is a reason I sought to interview someone behind Church People.

Because this interview was for Startup Christ Presents, one of the goals of the interview is to tap their entrepreneurial wisdom. Christopher was not lacking for advice to give. The theme of the advice can be summarized by saying unless God is saying otherwise, start making content. Technology has increased the ease of entrance with film and distribution of content.

These are some of the highlights from the interview. You can watch, or rather listen, on youtube, and if you feel so inclined, subscribe to Christianity Visualized, a new channel I am working on. More to come on that later.
