From the skeptic, his objection to all of the complexity that we see around us is that there is only an appearance of design, not actual design itself. So how legitimate is the claim of only an illusion of design, when it is not actually present? That is the subject for this post....
I recently have been rereading the book titled By Design or by Chance? By Denyse O’Leary. This book does an excellent job of distilling out, how modern science is giving more and more data to show that the Universe is the product of design. The amount of complexity that we see is everywhere we look....
Last week we unpacked how the Gospel is meant to change everything about us, so that we are constantly becoming a new man or woman in Christ.

I have recently been reading a book by Phillip Yancey titled Reaching for the Invisible God. In this work, he quotes one of the early church fathers, Gregory of Nyssa stating that “a person’s faith is ambidextrous because he or she should welcome pleasures with the right hand and afflictions with the left, with the understanding that both would serve God’s design for...Keep Reading
The church today should be passionate, not falling into complacency. We are in danger of being labeled a lukewarm people. Let’s be Hot or Cold, let’s live in the extreme’s. You have the ability to change your temp, no one likes a lukewarm glass of water....Keep Reading
In this post, I would like to explore some of the benefits of being a member of a local church in a broad perspective....Keep Reading
What would our lives look like if we feared God? How would fearing God impact us? If we were to fear God, we’d love what He loves and hate what He hates. The fear of the Lord compels us to act....Keep Reading
