When Believers Fall

I have the feeling that J. West is a very insecure person because he feels the need to judge and condemn others who sin or fall to temptation. If you look at his website with any consistency you would have noticed how he regularly finds some situation in which he can stand in judgement over … Continue reading When Believers Fall

Defending The Faith

Whenever someone presents an argument similar to the one linked below, there is a specific verse that defeats that argument. First the non-creation argument: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/exploringourmatrix/2014/02/changing-science.html Young-earth creationists often adopt the dogmatic stance that they have unchanging truth, and that somehow the advances of science are something to be rejected rather than appreciated. And so, with … Continue reading Defending The Faith

Do Unto Others- 3

Since writing this morning, another article has been brought to my attention on the issue of providing services to same-sex weddings.¬† This time I hope to address specific quotes in all the articles that pertain to this issue. #1. Whether Christians have the legal right to discriminate should be a moot point because Christianity doesn't … Continue reading Do Unto Others- 3

Do Unto Others- 2

Since the last piece was written last night, 3 more articles have appeared upon the same-sex cake baking issue bringing up points that need to be addressed-- http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2014/02/18/gays-lesbians-kansas-bill-religious-freedom-christians-column/5588643/ http://theaquilareport.com/of-consciences-and-cakes-a-response-to-kirsten-powers/?fb_action_ids=10201486340983839&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_ref=.Uwyu6Wr9hIw.like&fb_source=other_multiline&action_object_map=%5B281396238692274%5D&action_type_map=%5B%22og.likes%22%5D&action_ref_map=%5B%22.Uwyu6Wr9hIw.like%22%5D http://www.patheos.com/blogs/exploringourmatrix/2014/02/gay-wedding-cake-discrimination.html One of the first thoughts I had when I read these articles was of the defense used by the Nazi leaders and prison camp officers--we … Continue reading Do Unto Others- 2

Do Unto Others

This post is a continued examination of the proposed Arizona bill that allows religious people to turn down requests by homosexuals. It will look at the following article found over at Formerly Fundie http://www.patheos.com/blogs/formerlyfundie/the-un-christian-nature-of-new-religious-freedom-laws/ If that article does anything, it provides a good example of how those who do not believe¬† do not have the … Continue reading Do Unto Others

#1. Blocking Homosexuals-- http://www.patheos.com/blogs/exploringourmatrix/2014/02/i-will-not-stand-by-quietly-while-history-repeats-itself.html I find the image over at this website very interesting. It is put up by McGrath in his protest against the Arizona bill that would protect religious people when they refuse service to homosexuals. It is a bit drastic and even though it makes a nice point it is still comparing … Continue reading 2 Things

Much To Talk About- 32

Maybe I should have titled this the Christian and the Constitution as that will be the main theme of today's article. When I was younger I used to study constitutional law as a hobby and would read anything I could on or about the Supreme Court of America. American law is far more interesting than … Continue reading Much To Talk About- 32

Caring

When you are discussing science with unbelievers one of the main reasons they give for siding with science over the bible is that science is always changing.¬† They think that is a good point but they are only looking at science from a very short-sighted, narrow-minded and self-centered view-point. Those people who side with science … Continue reading Caring

Archaeological Pontification

There have been numerous archaeological discoveries lately, one was supposed to be an ancient school room, another is an old village on a trade route and that one I am interested in hearing more about because I wonder if it was small enough to be a simply a way station for travelers. Here in Korea … Continue reading Archaeological Pontification
