Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Genesis 1-11: Myth or History by Prof. David J. Engelsma

Well, you know David Engelsma is just a foolish fundamentalist and a "hyper-Calvinist".  Nothing he says is to be taken seriously just on that basis alone.  Do not bother reading his remarks.   As if using the ad hominem fallacy justifies dismissing the legitimate arguments of a Reformed scholar out of hand?

The compromisers would instead have us listen to the false popes and false teachers who lead people into "cunningly devised fables". (Cf. 1 Tim. 1:4; 1 Tim. 4:7; 2 Tim. 4:4; Tit. 1:14; 2 Peter 1:16).  Mike Horton recently published a systematic theology called, The Christian Faith.  (See my review here:  A Critical Review).  In that book he applauded the neo-orthodox view of C. S. Lewis that Scripture is an "inspired story" or "inspired myth" but tries to soften the implications of such compromise by saying that it is also "fact".  But calling the inspired and infallible Scriptures an inspired "myth" or "story" is a falsehood no matter how a theologian tries to spin it.
