Believe – Then You Will Understand

If you’ve never heard that before, or something that basically means the same thing, I would guess that you either haven’t been a Christian for very long or are not one now. That is probably one of the most common things I hear with regards to understanding the Christian faith.


For many non-believers out there, if you ever want to get them riled up when they ask you for why you believe God exists, just bring up trees. I’ve heard many non-believers get to the point that I start do wonder if they might pop a blood vessel when someone uses an argument for God because of trees.

Weighed Down by Faith

Last week, I wrote a post on my blog with my feedback of a debate I heard on Apologetics315 between Matt Slick of CARM and Dan Barker. The debate topic was “Is There Reason to be Good Without God?” I won’t repeat my comments here, but you can read the entire post if you like.

Dice, Teapots and Spaghetti Monsters – Part II

Last week, I took a look at an example used by non-believers to show how ridiculous it is to believe in the God of the Bible. The example used jars of dice, one set of which were “invisible” and “transcendent.” I showed several reasons why this analogy was a very poor argument against God, but you can read that for yourself.

Dice, Teapots and Spaghetti Monsters

If I had a nickel for every time I heard someone argue against the existence of God using some crackpot analogy, I wouldn’t need to write blogs any more. While I’m sure there are dozens more out there, there are three that I’ve heard repeatedly from various sources. Many of the attributes (and problems) with these analogies are consistent among the lot, though some may have some more unique issues.

The Politics of Balance

The United States of America is approaching it’s 250th year of existence. I hadn’t really thought of it that way until just now. But, really, it’s only 16 years away. That’s not really all that far, when you think about it. It’ll be here in the blink of an eye.

God Is…

God is love. We hear that a lot. And I think that’s absolutely true. God is love. However, I sometimes wonder if we are understanding the entire scope when we say things like that. To say that God is love carries with it a rather distinct meaning from it’s inverse, Love is God. Those two things are not the same.

Discrimination Against Christianity

One of the ironies in the area of politics and religion seems to be that those people who strongly profess a faith of some sort feel as though they are being persecuted by the secular minority and the secular minority feels as though they are being persecuted by those who are religious. It’s an interesting predicament.

The Convenience of Money

I don't know if you're old enough to remember this, and perhaps I'm showing my age a bit, but do you remember what life was like before debit cards? I still remember what it was like when we didn't have the Internet (or at least the World Wide Web), or cell phones, or...

Misapplication of Truth

It’s not a new thing to point out the flaws of Christians and use that as an argument against the veracity of the Christian faith. Many things have been written on this subject and today I’ve been thinking about something along these lines that I have not yet read anywhere else.
