An Instinct to Fail

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1:28 One argument I often bristle at in a conversation comes when...

Not Many of You Were Wise

“Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.” 1 Corinthians 1:26 The phrase “not many of you were wise” has stuck with me the last few days as I continue to hear...

Constantine and Forgiveness

I have been brushing up on some elements of Church history for a lecture I am giving Saturday (you can find more info here). I read about the Roman Emperor Constantine who, though "converting" to Christianity in 312, put off his baptism until near his death in 337. I confess I have not been much... Continue Reading →

The Tools for Judging Reality

One of the questions I am often asked is what is my favorite argument against atheism, I somewhat sarcastically respond "A B.A.!" I recognize this is a snarky answer but it is somewhat clever and it has a few nuances behind it number one I do think that a person well educated in the arts... Continue Reading →

The Violence of the Biblical God

I do not often write book reviews on my blog, but occasionally a book strikes me in such a way that I feel compelled to do so, a book like L. Daniel Hawk's The Violence of the Biblical God Eerdman's, 2019. Full disclosure I know Dr. Hawk personally and enjoy a cup of coffee with... Continue Reading →

God and Science

Last week I was in a discussion based around the comments I made in my blog post, here. The discussion revolved around the intersection between faith and science. During the conversation I was surprised that my discussion partner wanted to push back on my comment that "science can neither prove or disprove God because science... Continue Reading →

Atheists Love Jim

I have a friend, well probably several who fit this description, who I will call Jim. Jim is a Christian and very proud of that fact (and I'm glad for that). If you talk to Jim you will know quickly that God and his church are very important to him. If you ask Jim about... Continue Reading →

The Problem of Beauty

Last week I focused on God's desire to bring beauty from our pain in the season of Lent, and that made me think more about the nature of beauty. One of the realities which I cannot get away from is that, though beauty is inherently somewhat subjective, there is also a universality to beauty; we... Continue Reading →

Bronze Snakes and Vaccines

Numbers 21 is not one of those chapters most people commit to memory, but as with all passages in the Bible there are things we can learn from it. Ask most people what the story of the "bronze snake" is about and their response will likely either be "I don't know", or "it is simply... Continue Reading →

What is there to be Thankful for?

Like many others, my family will not be gathering together for Thanksgiving this Thursday. It is truly disappointing to me not to be celebrating with my parents and siblings; however, some of us have had recent exposure to COVID so the decision not to get together was easy. I have been struck by how many... Continue Reading →
