I Like To Fight

Confession time. I like a good fight. Not a punch you in the face, knock you out fight. Rather, I like a good argument. I like trying to match my wits with someone over something I control or can win at. I didn’t realize how much of this was true until one day in Mongolia when my friend Mike came … Learn More

Creationism

Confused by Creationism?

It may be Christianity’s most controversial subject: creationism. Forget the theories of the Big Bang and Evolution for a moment. Within the body of the Christian church there are at least six different views on the general subject of creationism. Each have their strengths and weaknesses and because of that many Christians have trouble deciding what they actually believe about … Learn More

Evolution vs. Intelligent Design: Philosophy or History?

I’m wondering how much of the creation/evolution debate is caught up in the labels of “Evolution,” “Creation,” and “Intelligent Design.” I say this because of the popularly understood notions of what these labels mean. While you personally may not regard evolution as beginning with the idea that God does not (or must not) exist the published works indicate that the … Learn More

Ask Tom: Why Is Young Earth Creationism Pseudoscientific?

During a discussion on creationism I was asked the question, “Why is young earth creationism pseudoscientific in your view?”  Allow me to explain. Have you ever seen this photo? Here is a great example of what speech says and what it means. The meaning of the sign is that the parking space is reserved for vehicles that use electric or … Learn More

Ask Tom: Is The Earth Really Young Or Old?

Tom: I am writing about your belief in an old earth. Do you still believe what you wrote? As a fellow Christian, I am always concerned when one takes a position that is unimportant to the Gospel and often causes unnecessary divisiveness in the church. Recent scientific discoveries contradict your post. Age [of the earth/universe] is pretty much impossible to … Learn More

The Garden Of Eden Wasn’t Perfect

Do you think of Heaven as a perfect place? What does it mean for a place to be perfect? Many Christians think that Eden was a perfect place because it was a place without sin. Yet, will it surprise you to learn that Eden was not a perfect place? And what about Heaven? What is meant when we think of … Learn More

The Great Creation Cop Out. What Passes For Evidence Among Creationists

Let’s be honest for a moment and acknowledge something about creationism that we all know. To most unbelievers, creationists seem, not just ignorant, but downright silly. And while it may be easy to label a nonbeliever as having his heart and mind darkened by vain philosophy or a lack of knowledge about creationism, the reality is that for most of … Learn More

COVID: Not A Cause To Sin

I’ve admired pastor John MacArthur for some time. And I was especially interested in his opposition to the state of California’s rules that prohibited church attendance and other church activities. But I must say that I wonder at some of what he has done. It occurs to me that while making a bold defense of the Christian’s right to worship, … Learn More

I Bet You Will Choose The Wrong Candidate. Don’t Believe Me? Give This A Whirl

The people you are about to read about were real leaders in history. Pay close attention. You will be asked to vote for one of them. During his term the Incumbent has worked to accomplish three things: Strengthen the national defense, bring the economy under control, and promote faith in God. He is a family man with one wife. Most … Learn More

Why Socialism Is Unbiblical

It is sometimes said that religion and politics should not be mixed. These are two things that when taken together, can offend and take people’s focus off of the Lord. Yet, the Bible gives us principles that help us determine whether our politics are in line with biblical principles or take us down a collective path toward marginalization or destruction. … Learn More

How Can God Be Loving And Send People To Hell?

Earlier today I noticed this meme on Facebook, posted by a friend of mine. It’s a challenge to the believer that the God he worships is self-contradictory and inconsistent. The meme would seem to say the scripture is at odds with itself. Thus, why believe in a God who contradicts himself like this? However, such a perception is partial and … Learn More

Beating Prayer Fatigue

Have you ever stopped praying because you have lost heart, or feel like you’re just repeating yourself, or wonder if God really hears you and your words just bounce off the ceiling? Does this feeling ever make you wonder if God is even there, if he even exists? What you may be experiencing is something called, “Prayer Fatigue.” You’re tied, … Learn More

The Coming Christian Persecution

The institutionalization of sin always results in the persecution of those who hold that sin as destructive. Rome had institutionalized murder in the gladiatorial games. Christians were often thrown to the lions and murdered by gladiators.  The United States institutionalized the murder of unborn children. Those who protest or who try to save the lives of the unborn can be … Learn More
