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?

Much of this post comes from the book titled Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers by Dane Ortland. What is the meaning of everything? What is the telos, the aim, the macro reason and goal for our small, ordinary lives? We are on solid footing, both biblically and historically, if we answer: “To glorify God.”...
I have been doing some research on times of revival and renewal. Historically, it is interesting to me how God has set certain times in history where the power of the Holy Spirit is on display in a very dynamic way. The methodology has varied from time to time, however, there are some common denominators in many of these movements....
In last week’s post, we talked about the synergistic effect of the multiple examples of fine tuning building an astounding case for a designed universe.

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
