I have not been a fan of the redesign and focus on Christianity Today's website. I wrote them a letter some time back asking where were all the articles by older, more mature, wiser Christians who could build the faith of those younger. I am disappointed that the majority of articles I see are written … Continue reading Caring In The Church
Time to play catch-up. #1. Sons of God-- https://remnantofgiants.wordpress.com/2015/02/23/david-clines-the-sons-of-god/ Anticipating an issue which has come up in the current debate about monotheism and polytheism in ancient Israel and classical and later Greece and Rome, David Clines suggests that this split between human and divine options may not be so clear-cut, in particular with respect to … Continue reading Much To Talk About- 102
As I was reading the book Liberty and Justice for Some, my mind kept going back to the Larry King show of many years ago where he had a panel of religious leaders on discussing the, I believe, the church's response to Bush43's decision to go to war with Iraq. My mind has held on … Continue reading Not Of The World
I have never found these type of cartoons funny http://www.patheos.com/blogs/exploringourmatrix/2015/02/a-missing-page-from-genesis.html I find them a bit sick and insulting to God.
Just some quotes from Manetho. He is the person so many Egyptologists base their Egyptian and biblical chronology upon even though his work only survives via quotes from other ancient authors. All quotes will be from the same book, whose information will be given after the first quote. #1. Tutimaeus.3 In his reign, for what … Continue reading While I Am Away-2

Real biblical values will get you real family values. 2. For those of you who vote for a political party because they are the closest to what you believe, … Continue reading While I Am Away…
I will be taking a few days off to work on something else for awhile.
I am not going to write at length on either of these two things as the previous article tired me out and these articles do not need much from me to make the right point. #1. I Agree-- http://www.christianpost.com/news/so-baptist-pastor-david-platt-christians-shouldnt-single-out-gay-lifestyle-when-defending-marriage-risk-being-guilty-of-selective-moral-outrage-134412/ In the wake of this revelation, Platt recalled, "I don't want to be guilty of selective … Continue reading Two Things-6
I hear it was a great movie and I use the word hear, because I have never seen it. Not that I haven't wanted to or that I think that secular movies are bad but because I have never gotten around to taking the time to view it. One reason I have not spoken out … Continue reading And Justice For All
#1. Writing A Review Without Watching The Movie-- http://www.patheos.com/blogs/peterenns/2015/02/reviewing-two-reviews-of-patterns-of-evidence-exodus-3/ Whatever arguments there may or may not be for the historicity of the exodus, culture-war rhetoric seems armed and loaded here, yet it is the very thing evangelicals need to avoid, not encourage.
