DO WE DARE[i] THE DINOSAURS AND DRAGONS?
There still is some controversy surrounding the name Brontosaurus. When Marsh discovered some partial remains of this dinosaur in 1877 he named it Apatosaurus Ajax after the Greek god Ajax.[ii] However, when he discovered a more complete skeleton two years later, he named it Brontosaurus Excelsus.[iii]
In 1903, scientists realized that these two specimens were actually the same type of dinosaur. With that being the case, according to the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, the oldest name would be the correct one: however, the Brontosaurus name seemed to be more agreeable with the imagination of the public and continues to be used to this day.[iv]
Several computer simulations have been conducted on how the tail worked on the Brontosaurus.[v] One simulation—introduced in the 1997 issue of Discover Magazine—showed that the tail of these creatures behaved much like a bull whip does, and that by “cracking” its tail like a bullwhip, then this creature could produce a cracking sound that was over 200 decibels, or louder than the firing of a cannon.
There are so many areas for discussion and controversy here. Questions abound, but the scriptural accounts seem to bear out what scientist have found.
Read the following biblical account carefully and consider that some early King James translators may not have understood because they had not lived with such beasts. Several lesser animals were thought to be what the Lord calls Leviathan.

Why are these study methods not generally taught? Everyone has a right to know how to search the scriptures to use them.
I’ve saved the best for the last. Several years ago, one sweet lady from another congregation shared with our family a lesson she had done on obedience. Beginning in Genesis, she’d read through the entire Bible, noting Scriptures that mentioned obedience or anything to do with it. She had very few comments typed out at all – just Scriptures. But the Scriptures speak for themselves so clearly!
1 Corinthians 2:11-16
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
Who knows what God means by a verse better than God Himself? Who can explain what He means better than He can?
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely…

These lessons about our song writers are well researched. I hope you will be inspired to study more about the hymns we sing.
“AN EMPTY MANSION”
“In my Father’s house are many mansions….I go to prepare a place for you” (Jn. 14:2)
INTRO.: A gospel song which centers upon the many mansions that Jesus is preparing in the Father’s house is “An Empty Mansion” (#198 in Hymns for Worship Revised, #392 in Sacred Selections for the Church). The text was written by Beuna Ora Bryant (Mrs. J. B.) Karnes, who was born on Feb. 8, 1889, in Comanche County, TX, and in 1911, at the age of 22, met and married Jess O’Brian Karnes, who had also been born in 1889. A series of events led up to the production of this song. In 1928, Jess, who was a successful builder in Abilene, TX, lost his lumber yard to a disastrous fire and had no insurance to cover the loss. A few months afterwards, the Great Depression began and their life’s…

More encouragement and help…
Daddy’s word study method was how I studied for a very long time, and is still how I study a topic when I need to learn about it in a hurry. Bible software and “cut and paste” make it a pretty quick way to find many verses about a particular subject. However, there are lots of verses that have to do with certain topics, which don’t use that particular word in the passage – humility, for example. Not every passage which shows humility uses the word “humility” directly. That’s one of the things that encourages me about most of Granddad’s lessons; he brings in so much understanding from verses which you would not be able to find just by doing a word study.
I’m sure Granddad’s ability to “compare spiritual things with spiritual” (1 Corinthians 2:30) comes from many years of intense study and teaching. However, I discovered in the…
