Genesis: Creation and Context

In my previous post, I laid out a positive, scientific argument for a Creator entity that looks remarkably like the God of the Bible. However, there will be some Christians, particularly Evangelicals, who wouldn't be entirely happy with that case. Why? Because it depends on the modern cosmology that says that the universe is nearly … Continue reading Genesis: Creation and Context

Finding God Through Science

Once upon a time, an atheist was someone who simply didn't believe in God. And while those still exist, they've become increasingly drowned out by the "new atheists" and "anti-theists"--a breed that proselytizes as aggressively as any member of the Watchtower.

Prophecy in the New Testament – 1st Through 3rd Principles in the “Voice in Ramah”

Understanding the history behind geographic locations is often key to understanding a prophecy. This post has been a bit delayed, in part because of the elections (which I've commented on elsewhere, but don't intend to on this blog), and in part because it's taken me a while to figure out how best to attack Matthew 2:16-18: … Continue reading Prophecy in the New Testament – 1st Through 3rd Principles in the “Voice in Ramah”
