Possibly, definitely, God exists

I didn’t argue much as a child. At least that’s what my (sometimes selective) memory tells me. Yeah, I’m pretty sure I almost always agreed with my siblings that it was in fact… Continue reading

The greatest miracle

It always strikes me as odd when skeptics or atheists dismiss the virgin conception of Jesus as a ridiculous impossibility. The late former atheist Christopher Hitchens – “former” because now he knows the… Continue reading

It is necessarily so

Hey, fellow Christians…do you realize we have the most intellectually coherent, compelling, and complete worldview? It’s true. And that’s why it’s intellectually superior…because it is true. It conforms to reality, and if a… Continue reading

Explanation, please

Some things just seem to defy explanation. Like why over 400 whales recently beached themselves in New Zealand. Or why someone would pay almost $100,000 for a Cheeto. And how otherwise tenderhearted women… Continue reading

It ain’t necessarily so

I wonder sometimes if it was easier in the first century to convince people of the truth of Christian theism…one God, creator of all things, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit…than it is today.… Continue reading

What I’ve learned from jigsaw puzzles

I love doing jigsaw puzzles. Of late, there’s almost never a day when I’m not working on one. It’s an obsession escape for me. I love the satisfaction when I find the right… Continue reading

In my slightly silly, futuristic fantasy Do you believe in man? I tried to depict the incongruences of Darwinism by putting the theory in the “minds” of man-made computers. Though it fails as… Continue reading

Judging our Judge

Is God a moral monster because he commanded the slaughter of whole groups of people, including children? Are the records in the Old Testament of God ordering the nation of Israel to mercilessly… Continue reading

Is the church bankrupt?

If Christians are perceived as stupid it is, sadly, partly our own fault. Because although there is a robust and convincing argument for the truth of Christianity, many of the faithful are unaware… Continue reading

Oh, those crazy Christians

A year or so ago I was interacting with an atheist blogger, and after reading his list of objections to faith in God I boldly asserted my intention to answer each of them.… Continue reading

My apologist crush

When I set out almost four years ago to pursue an amateur vocation in apologetics by way of the blogosphere, arguing for the reasonableness of theism and Christianity in particular, I knew the… Continue reading

The spirituality of love

  Love. We all need it, want it, search for it. We feel it and think about it, dramatize and sing about it. It makes us happy, and it makes us sad. But… Continue reading

Wireless communication of a different sort

I have an invisible friend. Some would say imaginary. That’s okay, I get that. It’s reasonable to withhold belief in something or someone you can’t see. Unless… Unless that something or someone has… Continue reading

What’s at the bottom of the slide?

What is a religious belief? Many who deny the existence of God would claim not to have any but that’s certainly false. Though religion can be defined as, “a pursuit or interest to… Continue reading
