And That’s the Truth!

Sadly, the word “Truth” has been hijacked and twisted in my lifetime. When I was a kid when you talked about the “Truth” (yes, the capital “T” kind of “Truth”) it was THE Truth.  It wasn’t “my” truth and “your” truth.  It was simply THE Truth.  Truth was not a matter of opinion.  It was not up for […]

Love with No Bounds

Imagine if you will a young prince who finds a homeless girl. She’s filthy, in rags, odorous. But he sees something in her a eyes; a sadness and despair. So, he marries her on the spot. He dotes on her, loving her lavishly. There is no sacrifice too great to come in the way of […]

Being Honest with Ourselves

Okay, this post is going to be a bit heavy.  So if you’re in the mood for something light and funny you should read our post “The story of the Football Fish.”  But if you’re ready for some deep thinking read on.  Here goes… You know I have to wonder if we’ve all become just […]

God and Evil

Okay, let’s give this a shot.  Let me see if I can address the question of God and evil.  While, this will not be an exhaustive treatment (how can it be?  This is a question that has plagued humanity for millennia) it will be an honest effort. When I talk to non-Christians about the Lord, […]

What Is the Gospel?

You’ll hear  Christians speak of the “Gospel of Christ.”  That word “gospel” has taken up several meanings in our day.  When we hear that word, most of the time we conjure up images of fiery evangelists preaching fire and brimstone sermons at an animated audience.  We imagine a preacher with a southern accent shouting words like, “heaven and […]

The Story of the Football Fish

Once upon a time there was a Football Fish that lived on the bottom of the Ocean – the Marianas Trench to be exact.  One night he had a dream.  In that dream an eagle came to him to tell him of a far away place. “Where I come from,” said the eagle “there is […]

The God of Five Senses

If evolution is true that means our five senses are simply random.  While they developed to adapt to our environment they do a very poor job of sensing all there is.  There is so much of reality that we don’t see, hear, smell, taste or feel.  So how can we trust these random puny senses […]

Something From Nothing?

I guess now certain someones are claiming “something can come from nothing.”  For ages the Christian argument for “God as The Necessary Being” rested in the simple concept that “out of nothing comes nothing.” The argument looks something like this: In the natural world Out of nothing comes nothing. So if there ever was a […]

Fixing a Broken Universe

I hear a lot of non-Christians say something along the lines of, “Why do I have to believe in Jesus to go to Heaven?  You mean the only thing that sends someone to hell is not believing in Jesus?  And then most typical Christians answer, “Well, yes!”  And, I hate that!  While technically true, kind of, at it’s […]
