Strong and Courageous Is it possible for God to exist if there is evil and suffering in the world? 4/13/2018 So the discussion goes like this in the mind of some atheists.

Either he is...Keep Reading

Which came first, the Chicken or the Egg? Yes, it is the age-old question; however, I would like to address this type of question for today’s post. It is this kind of question that leaves a person with a sense of not being able to definitively choose either answer. This conundrum may end up taking us to a spiritually numinous place. I hope you will get the gist of where I am going in this post....
I was talking with a friend recently, who works at a gear manufacturing facility. Our conversation led to the discussion of the tolerance level of fine tuning required to make gears that will mesh together. He said that most of the gears that they make, are manufactured with the help of computer programs that measure to the thousands of an inch....
April 6, 2018 Strong and Courageous How could Jesus rise from the dead? Since we have just completed the Easter holiday, I would like to zero in on the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and his appearance to many different people living at that time. Many theologians describe the resurrection as the virtual lynchpin of Christian understanding. Without this even...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 27, 2018 Meaning and purpose in life. We have been talking recently about aspects of a person's worldview. What is the overarching narrative of how someone lives out his or her philosophical views? Not only in the aspect of theory, but how we actually live out the need for consistency in the laboratory of life itself. Often times, a person w...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 23, 2018 Retraction I need to make a retraction today about last week's blog post. I usually post this blog on both our church website and on Facebook. So on the Facebook page, I received a comment from a good friend about some of the information that I had posted about how complex single celled organisms are. The comment spoke about other m...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 16, 2018 Is there any such thing as a simple cell? One of the main teaching points found in the Darwinian explanation for evolution is that life sprang up from non-living matter as a simple single celled organism. Then as time elapsed, this simple cell morphed in complexity, becoming more and more elaborate until we have complex multicellular...Keep Reading
In Psalm 105 and 106 David was recounting Israel's history and some of it was pretty bleak. In verse 47 of Psalm 106 he says 'Save us, O Lord our God' and that exactly what He did!...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 9, 2018 How Good is Good Enough? This is the question of the ages. Am I good enough to make it into heaven when I die? If you were to survey the average person on the street and ask this question, a large majority of the responses would be yes, I am a pretty good person. Well at least I am as good or better than so and so. In other words...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 2, 2018 By Design or by Chance? Was our universe the result of design or chance? A very big question this is. It certainly has grand implications on how a person forms their worldview. Following are some quotes from some well respected non-Christian scientists. "As we look out into the universe and identify the many accidents of physics a...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous Jan 4,2018 "It's not nice to fool mother nature." It's a common idea that runs through our culture. But where did the idea that it's not nice to fool mother nature come from? It may have been in existence for a long time, but the phrase became popular in a 1970's T.V. commercial about a brand of margarine that tasted so close to real butter that wh...Keep Reading
