Why Adam did not eat an apple and why it matters

No, it’s not a slow writing day at RickThomas.Net. I have actually been pondering the fruit question for over a decade, though I have never written about it. I figured I needed to stop pondering and start writing. I’ll go ahead and give you my conclusion, and then followup with my reasoning.

Adam ate a fig

Yes, I know. This is an argument from the silence of Scripture. There is not one jot or tittle in the whole of God’s Word that says it was a fig. I say this...

Just when you thought things were going well... NS

Just when you thought things were going well…

Listen to Rick read this post:

Read the seven verses below and tell me if you see what I see. What I want you to look for is the sequential logic of the passage. As you read one verse, you should be able to predict what is going to happen next?

For example, verse nine says Jesus came to be baptized. Then it says He was baptized. That makes sense. He came to be baptized and He was baptised. Read on. Anticipate the ways of the LORD as you progress through the passage. See if your expectations are met.

    Great Advice - Date your wife forever NS (1)

    Great Advice – Date your wife forever

    Listen to Rick read this post: You probably won’t find a guy at the local Barnes & Noble looking for a book on how to get a girl. It’s an unnecessary thing for a guy to do because all guys know what they need to do to get a girl.

    Getting a girl is part of our internal wiring. The LORD knew our limitations so He preempted our problem by giving us a Get-a-Girl Upgrade. Praise God for that. Even the thickest headed guy will eventually win a girl. It’s not that hard.

    Our problem, if anything, is overcoming the Read

    Fifty Shades of Gray NS

    Fifty Shades of Grey is a reflection of our souls

    Listen to Rick read this post:

    Fifty Shades of Grey is a three-year phenomenon that appears to still be on the rise. Its latest boost came during the Valentine’s Day season (2015) with the opening of the movie that was based on the book. It is no surprise that our culture—Christian and non-Christian—is all a-buzz about this book.

    Shades is just another iteration of the culture’s desire to be satisfied outside of God. A long time ago a naked man and a naked woman walked away from God (Genesis 3:6). Their shift from God unwittingly...
