Link pong, the oriental game of diversion and chase that is relied upon by the masses on the interdweebs, is a game I am not fond of. ‘See it says here. See it says there. I have proof here. Your proof is not there.’ On and on and on the pong ball pings.
Recently, there was a post written that ‘proved’ the Exodus of scripture never occurred. Ugh, ouch, and yikes. And of course, link pong was relied upon to ‘prove’ the point. Double yikes, and in the words of Popeye: Well blow me down, Olivsk.
Quite wimpy to be sure, to succumb to the opinions of so-called scholars and pseudo-archaeologists who have cough cough…..said: No Exodus for you! Yep, this link says so. That link says so. Look at these links. This guy is smart and he knows. That guy is even smarter and he says it never happened. Blah, blah, blah, annnnd…… blah.
Yeah, like God’s eternal word is threatened by a group of disgruntled bible scholars, cave diggers, and atheists, who do not know the difference between Genesis and revolution. But are all links to be shunned? Of course not as there is much to be had via people with good intentions. But ah, there is the rub.
When the element of nefariousness is brought in, and the snares of ‘learning’ are called to witness against the truth of history and scripture, then yeah, Houston we have a problem.
To show the utter absurdity of the cat and mouse game of pong, where the ‘next’ link is supposedly better than the last, take a look see at this observation by a learned man who says the Exodus DID occur. A Jew mind you, who has called on the carpet other ‘respected’ Jews for coming up short as to the Exodus. This man of letters said not only did the Exodus occur, but has smitten the likes of Wolpe and Sperling by saying this:
‘After reading those articles, your readers may have concluded that scholarship shows that the Exodus is fictional, when, in fact, that is not so. There is archaeological evidence and especially textual evidence for the Exodus.’
Ouch Mr Wolpe, for your own brother has pretty much called you a liar, and by so doing, has smitten your ‘credibility.’ And oh how they who worship such ‘scholarship’ must want to run and hide under a rock. Are you paying attention Mr. and Mrs atheist?
So the game of pong continues, but me? Uh, the scriptures are enough, and the opposing sides can fight it out till the day of their death. In the meantime, God’s word is the anvil that dismisses and smites every false blow of unbelief and the absolute arrogance of men who shake their fist at the impeccable testimony of scripture which testifies to the utter truth of the living God.
But to those of you who are interested, take a look at the link below, and see how one believing ‘scholar’ dismantles another unbelieving ‘scholar,’ by simply history, reason, and attention to detail. Even though this supports the biblical narrative of the life and times of Moses, as well as the testimony of Christ Himself, still, I have no interest in link pong, even though Friedman’s work confirms the truth of the Exodus.
If people do not believe the reliability of scripture as it is written, then a thousand links will serve no help either. SMASH! Game over. 21-nil. One need not be Oriental to win at pong, as God’s word has a perfect winning record.
