How Gay Marriage Will Save the Evangelical Church in America

In a matter of weeks, the U.S. Supreme Court will rule in Obergefell v. Hodges, and is widely expected to impose homosexual marriage on the whole of the United States. There has been some speculation as to what the implications of such a ruling will be. Given the hysterical reaction to Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, along with the cases of florists and bakers who have been made to pay exorbitant fines for having refused to serve homosexual weddings, it is clear the goal of the homosexual Read more […]

Google Wants to be Internet Pope

What makes Google as Internet pope scary is that they are claiming a much wider area of infallibility than the Pope does. I hope Roman Catholics will forgive me if my understanding of Papal infallibility is a little muddled. But I do know that the Pope does not intercept thousands of communications and direct people to his own conception of the truth. But that is what Google wants to do. Their papacy will cover the globe. As New Scientist reports, “Google wants to rank websites based Read more […]

Exodus: Is It Time to Go Beyond Hollywood?

A forthcoming documentary may give us help to consider the Exodus as the Bible describes it. Lots of hype surrounding the Hollywood film “Exodus: Gods and Kings” these days… but what really happened thousands of years ago in Egypt? Was there an Exodus? Is there evidence? You owe it to yourself (and to God!) to make up your mind about these things. Here is something that might be helpful: Many scholars personally hate the Bible because its message stomps on their desire to be gods themselves—and Read more […]

Thinking Reasonably: What is Truth?

Many posts I have written have begun with a simple frustration that many people don’t seem to grasp the basic need for thinking reasonably about the question, What is truth? – to include “truth” as an essential part of how they think.   Seemed simple enough: Do a Google search on “truth”, and understanding should follow! Forget that idea; there are so many types of truth, including philosophies of truth that your head will immediately begin to spin.  For example, Aristotle Read more […]

“Why Do You Show Graphic Pictures?”

I hope this doesn’t come across as self-serving, although I don’t apologize if it does.  I just want to share with you a couple of stories from the past couple of weeks. My wife and I love doing street ministry.  In fact, as I heard a friend say the other day, it is much easier to make a Biblical defense for preaching outside of the church than it is for preaching inside one.  My faith is never more alive and vibrant than when we are “earnestly contending for the faith” out where the wild Read more […]

CA GOP Fights Obamacare & Outrages Liberals; They Are A Model, Not An Embarrassment

I don’t know why taxpayer dollars were available for the website, but the site itself was an excellent idea. You know it is great because Liberals are screaming about it: California Assembly Republicans are getting blowback for a website that points out some of the, ahem, shortcomings of the new health care law. Not only does it share a similar URL to California’s official, but it kinda looks official. The concern is that it could cause confusion for those looking for the actual Read more […]

Paying the Price

In the first chapter of his little book, How Do We Know, Leonard Read quotes the first-century Roman poet, Juvenal, who writes: “All wish to possess knowledge, but few, comparatively speaking, are willing to pay the price.” Read claims that Juvenal only got it half-right; that is, few indeed are willing to pay the price, but according to Read, “never… has everyone wished to possess knowledge.” This is a curious statement coming from someone wishing to interest others in the quest for Read more […]
