Of geese and men

Anyone who knows me well can attest to my hatred of lack of fondness for geese. Actually, for domestic birds in general. They are rude, constantly defecating squatters…on our lawn, in the outer… Continue reading

God’s love – a case from reason

“God so loved the world…” Other than perhaps Matthew 7:1, “Do not judge…,” a favorite of non-believers, John 3:16 has to be the best known New Testament verse and it begins with a… 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

Atheism’s best argument

How dare you create a world in which there is such misery that is not our fault? It’s not right…It’s utterly, utterly evil. Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid God who… 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

Truth is an elephant

I’m busy this week preparing for a family reunion we host every year, so I’m rerunning a post that has gotten a lot of views because many search for the very popular parable… Continue reading

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

Paradoxes, possibilities, and a precious privilege

I don’t have a very good memory of my childhood. I’ll be at a family function and my brother who is just one year younger than me and seems to remember everything will… Continue reading

Insert sappy title here

Appeals to sentimentality and inspirational memes and blog posts rarely attract me enough to cause me to click or read lately. I still haven’t watched the video of the autistic boy at a… Continue reading

Shaking off the dust

Some people think if you’re a follower of Christ you must have the same attitude towards everyone, no matter their attitude towards you or your God…love your enemies, turn the other cheek, and… Continue reading

Yesterday I presented Part 1 of what I believe is a plausible harmonization of the varying Gospel accounts of the events surrounding the resurrection of Jesus. I continue that today with an examination… Continue reading
