Some people are determined to have faith against incredible odds...far more so than we theists...
No more than a few years ago political correctness would point a finger at you (hypocritically) and tell you not to judge. Now, under wokeness, the originating mentality has come entirely out of its closet.
Just when I begin to think that my writing isn't turning anyone on, or that it isn't helping anyone, and just when I begin to think it's time to hang up my keyboard, I get a little more encouragement to go on.
As a caution to those of you who are unfamiliar with the nature and intent of satire in this post-comedy age, please be aware that the following letter is not genuine. Mr. Smith. From the office of the President of the United States. Having emerged from government bunkers, and the craziest post-war party you could … Continue reading Dear Mr. Smith
Macro-evolution and faith are incompatible, yes: there's no doubt about that. But don't confuse true science with evolutionism.
I cannot help stating here very plainly that Jesus’ message was exactly opposite to that of Hitler’s, that the two names should not even be mentioned in the same breath, and that attempting to paint a link between the two is, in the case of a Professor of History who should know better and probably does, blasphemy.
If we would just stop eating meat and pay more taxes, rain would fall on the Californian desert again...
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".
They knew without doubt that he was claiming to be God (Matthew 26:63-66) and they had him executed, in shame and apparently humiliating defeat. What they didn't know was that they were fulfilling the will of the Father all along.
We live in some wild times, don't we? One little look back in history shows that people of all ages have lived in wild times of their own...
Are we to assume that cancer is not "bad", and that the rispiritory system, with all its wonders, is not "good"?
What did Paul mean when he said that the power of evil will be held back until the one who holds it back is taken away? I answer that question here, in written form
Hawking and Ellis stated in 1973 that the creation of the universe from a singularity, at its beginning, is outside of the laws of known physics.
If all our dreams and hopes in life come to nothing, would we turn our back on our God, or would we realize that though we have nothing,, we still have the Prize:?
In 1927 Georges Lemaître, a Belgian physicist (and incidentally, a Catholic priest) declared from his own studies that space is expanding spherically. 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"
Are you free? Do you have free will, or is everything decided for you?
Hello everyone. Here's a link to the most recent video in my rapture series.
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”.
Thank you, oh Lord, that you love true diversity, as evidenced in human DNA, in character types, and in all of your creation.
If you're interested in the subject of the rapture, I've published my latest video examining some faulty claims...
Did the universe have a beginning, or is it eternal? For centuries most philosophers thought the latter...
Here's a link to my latest video on the rapture of the Church. While I am myself Dispensational in my view of plan of God and the future, I here question the claim that the Church Age will end before any Tribulation events.
Why the rise of systematic study of science in Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries? It required a certain form of thinking.
Aggression is inexcusable, except in self-defense. However, I'm not going to join in the hate party now going on via our mainstream media.
Here's the second part of my "expose" on the claim that the Church is missing from the earth in Revelation Chapter Four onwards.
Science hasn't buried God, as is often claimed today by the "new atheists". On the contrary, Meyer says, in direct opposition to the statements of well-known atheist Richard Dawkins, the universe is exactly as it should be if it was designed by a "transcendent and purposive intelligence".
I've discovered that far too many professing Christians have their faith firmly planted in the wrong thing.
This latest video concerns the claims that the Chruch is missing from Revelation chapter four on, and so there must be a pre-tribulation rapture; and the belief that John's calling to heaven in Revelation is a type of pre-tribulation rapture.
It may be that at least half of people in the United States and in the West in general, haven't changed very much in their values and standards. However...
If these terms don't appear to fit together, it's because they don't: part of the point of the fourth video of my series...
Was it a run, a jog, a sprint? I didn’t know or care: I felt like I could run around the earth and enjoy every step of it.
The rapture is a very controversial topic among Christians. While many just ignore it altogether, others hang their hopes and even their faith on it.
This is the age in which people have already made up their minds, and don't even want to hear anything different.
Aren't all things under God's control? Isn't the concept of luck ungodly and demonic?
...when that thin blue line appears under my word, phrase or expression!
For those of you who've been interested in my blog series taken from my book on the subject of the rapture, I've begun producing a video series also.
Anyone who thinks that the devil causes all bad things to happen should go to the back of the class. By that, I mean part one of the series!
The traditional view of Satan's work on earth has depicted him whispering over our shoulders and talking us into doing bad things that we really want to do anyway.
Like it or not, we’re all tested at different times in our lives-perhaps throughout our lives, whether believers and non-believers.
It’s very human to think that God smiles and winks at everything people do, except perhaps certain types of murder and the things those awful people next door get up to. But like it or not, the God of the Bible disciplines even his own people-for their good.
All around you can see people losing their sanity and their sense of reason, and their judgment, direction, and hope: How can I maintain my own mental and spiritual integrity and strength?
Why does a new car devolve into a rusted, broken wreck? Why do the weeds keep coming back in the garden? Why do we get sick? Why does life sometimes seem like an unwinnable battle…
Like it or not “those” people have free-will, just as we do and unfortunately humans sometimes hurt each other with that free will.
Why do we suffer, and more importantly, why does God allow us to suffer? Why doesn’t he just step in and stop bad things from happening?
Why do we suffer? Surely, if there’s a loving God, there should be no suffering, or alternatively any bad events or conditions should be short-lived and quickly fixed.
Where is Truth? Where does it come from? How can we grasp it and hold on to it?
There's no wriggling away from it: The Son of God is no mere man.
Thomas worshipped Jesus, and called him, "My Lord and my God!". Why? Wasn't Jesus just "a good man"?
From the day I committed myself to Jesus, I couldn't understand anyone wanting to loosely associate themselves with the gospel message but not accept what it claims. Some might call me a "fundamentalist". Well, if being sure of what you believe is fundamentalism, it's a valid and a welcome label
Regarding the assertion that the work of the Intelligent Design movement is "pseudo-science", it's interesting if not comical to note that some evolutionists are believing that life originated from somewhere else in the galaxy, and then "designed" life to begin and thrive here on earth.
