Resource filled website

I had the chance to visit with the Walnut Street congregation last week. First time. It would be good if I had the chance to go back.

Their bulletin mentioned a website with some impressive stats of over 200,000 visits through the first week of April. The site (which can be found here) seems to be a resource filled tool.

It contains “lessons” about numerous topics, with several in Spanish. Many of these topical lessons contain several lessons within themselves. In other words, they are basically a biblical series. Some of the lessons contain simple stories from the experiences of other people. The site also contains a section of digital books for those who enjoy that form of media.

Good website for biblical articles in English and Spanish

For a no-where-close-to-fluent Spanish speaker, one of the challenges to finding good biblical articles in Española is being able to understand what you’re reading before you print it out and pass it along to others. Other than using Google-translate (which has its flaws) or having an actual translator near-by (which is not readily available in my case) there aren’t a lot of options that I have been able to find … until now.

Helping Christian Public School Teachers “Be Ready” (Apologetics Press)

At a recent Apologetics Press speaking engagement, a Christian public school teacher related to me some distressing news about happenings at the elementary school where she teaches. She explained that reading is heavily emphasized, which is a good thing. However, because the students are being required to read so much material each month and take computer tests over the material they are reading, the students are running across more evolutionary propaganda in their school libraries: especially false teaching about dinosaurs, the evolutionary origin of mankind, and the Big Bang theory.  Read >>

Great Link to a Website full of Bible Teaching Resources

Here’s a link to a great resource for Bible charts that I didn’t previously know about. I had posted two or three of these charts here in TFR before without knowing where they came from simply because I got them in an email. The reason that I checked the site out is because someone had told me about the unfortunate passing of the site’s creator (Donnie Barnes) and the name “Barnes’ Bible Charts” rung a bell because of the name that was attached to the bottom right hand side of the charts that I had previously posted.

I thought some of you here in TRF might be interested in having this site saved as a favorite in your browser due to the vast (and I mean vast) number of topics that these charts cover. To me, the greatest way to remember this brother’s work would be to use it however it may be used to help others understand the word of God.
