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. Today, I would like to look at the subjects of discouragement and depression in this context, and to relate how legalism can play a role in messing things up....
Last week we talked about how there is a similarity between the redactions of political documents and the culture withholding or (redacting) information about the character and nature of God. Both are withholding information in order to elevate one side of the issue over the other. That is the common thread....
When looking at our lives from a perspective of worldview, there is a profound difference in the placing of our priorities. Today I would like to look at and contrast a Christian worldview to a secular one. I think there will be some redeeming value to discover the endpoint of thought processes of these two worldviews....
We have recently had a sermon series in our church about the church. Its purpose and how we are to be in relationship together as members of the body of Christ. This is a bigger deal than most of us realize.Exploring aspects of church membership...Keep Reading

We dont always win, but we are running with the passion to win. In every race we are running to improve on the last race, this is the sanctification process. Lets run enjoying this process....Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous April 20, 2018 The story of the Prodigal son. Over the life of this blog, I have had three goals in mind with the content of the posts. The first goal has been to help Christian believers to have information available to help them to relate to the culture with more of an evangelistic perspective. Goal 2 has been to help seekers overcome some intell...Keep Reading
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. Since there is evil and suffering permeating our existence, therefore God does not exist. God is supposed to be both good, and all-powerful, but he cannot be both in the presence of evil. Either he is...Keep Reading
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
