SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE INVOLVED IN POLITICS?

Should Christians be involved in politics? This isn't a lengthy Bible study on the question, just a brief outburst of my thoughts... Photo by Brian Wertheim on Unsplash Our world is being run by evil, wicked, foolish people-East and West. Should we stand back and say "Go ahead, destroy our economy; take my hard earned money and spend … Continue reading SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE INVOLVED IN POLITICS?

ARE TONGUES HEAVENLY LANGUAGES?

Great claims are made of the gift of speaking in tongues today. Among them is the belief that tongues are heavenly prayer languages, or the languages of angels. Is this true? Is it Biblical? Photo by Christophe Van der waals on Unsplash We can search the Scriptures with a fine tooth-comb, and not find one example of angels … Continue reading ARE TONGUES HEAVENLY LANGUAGES?

IS THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAKING IN TONGUES?

In a large portion of the Christian church the claimed gift of speaking in tongues is held up as being almost supremely important to, and the sign of, a spirit-filled life. I'm going to examine this view today and in coming posts.

SHOULD CHRISTIANS TITHE?

Those who insist that we must tithe are regularly citing two Old Testament passages to support their claims. In the first Abraham, they say, gave Melchizedek a tenth of everything he had, long before the law was instituted...

FREE WILL AND SUFFERING

The number one reason people will give for not seeking or believing in God, so I'm told and so I gather, is the amount of suffering in the world. If there really were a loving God, we think, there would be no wars. There would be no crime, no disease, and no hunger or poverty...

HOYLE AND FINE-TUNING OF THE UNIVERSE

In chapter seven of "Return of the God Hypothesis", Stephen Meyer begins to consider the fascinating subject of the fine-tuning of the universe in his chapter titled, "The Goldilocks Universe".

The God Hypothesis Summary: 5.

He also surmised that one logical conclusion from this fact was that there had to be a starting point for the expansion, which he called the "primeval atom"

IN OUR TIME: ENZYMES

Another evolutionist joined the conversation, eager to prevent Melvyn from using that nasty “intelligence” concept again: “This is one thing that we’re always very careful of when we’re talking in the public sphere, because this idea of intelligence is very seductive”.
