Time for a Great Cartoon! (loopholes!)

Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 9.50.56 PM
We all love loopholes, don’t we? A loophole is defined as “a means of escape or evasion; a means or opportunity of evading a rule, law, etc.”  For Calvin, the invitation to explain something “in your own words” means that he can make up his own words!

There will be no LOOPHOLES as men and women stand before God at His judgment!  Our only recourse is to be in the Son of God, to be covered by His finished work at Calvary!

Time for a Great Cartoon! (answers)

Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 8.48.53 AMWe all want answers in life.  Some in our culture tell us that ultimate answers are undiscoverable, but that position must be recognized as an assumption.  Making up our own answers is no solution either.

This is precisely where Christian theology comes in.  It seeks to present answers to our deepest questions.  However, even theology can be nothing more than the sophisticated guesses of men and women with multiple initials after their names.

What is needed, of course, is some kind of revelation from the Creator as to the meaning of life.  And that is precisely what the Bible claims to be — a disclosure of truth from God about life’s meaning.

The Bible’s answers about the meaning of reality come in two forms: (1) general revelation (God communicating truth about Himself and the universe to everyone without exception through nature, human nature, and history), and (2) special revelation (God communicating truth about Himself and the universe to chosen individuals in specific time periods for His particular purposes).  Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 5.47.26 AMThe term “special revelation” is usually used in reference to the Bible, the Word of God.  Psalms 8 and 19 and Romans 1 illustrate the first kind of revelation.  Psalm 119  and 2 Timothy 3:16 help explain the second.

But what if people don’t want the answers that God’s revelation gives?  They are certainly free to go look elsewhere (although all alternatives prove to be poor substitutes).  What is not open to us is to give up on finding answers to the meaning of life.  For that individual, life becomes vain and empty (a theme dealt with extensively by the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes).

Not knowing the answer! (time for a great cartoon!)

I love the creativity of Calvin’s father.  If he doesn’t know the answer to a question, he makes one up!  And his made-up answers are quite ingenious!

Questions:

1.  Why is it that we Christians find it difficult to say, “I don’t know”?

2.  In our interactions with those who have not yet trusted in Christ, could it be that saying “I don’t know” would obligate us to do some research to give better thought-out answers to good questions?
