Science?

What explains the possibility of science?

Where did the idea or faith in an ordered world—a controlled rather than a chaotic cosmos—come from? Is this view just the view humans have always had? Is it the default view of humans? What explains the possibility of science? One author has said that “the emergence of science is a more extraordinary event than […]

The joy of Jesus builds and sustains

The joy of Jesus builds and sustains

Joy is probably the fruit of the Spirit that is the most difficult for me. I have wrinkles in between my eyebrows from furrowing my eyebrows so much.

How should Christians think about gender? 

How should Christians think about gender?

How should Christians think about gender? How should Christians think about gender? This is an important and controversial topic. This is merely one post but hopefully the beginning of a grace-filled, loving, and humble pursuit of the truth. We won’t be able to cover everything here but I hope this will be a good first […]

Humans?

What are humans?

What are humans? Are we mere mammals, slightly more evolved than monkeys? Are we ourselves divine, known or unknowingly gods ourselves? Or are we made to know and reflect the Creator God? Are humans nothing more than evolved hydrogen? The chance outcome of random processes with no significance? Do humans have spirits that go beyond […]

If God created the world, who created God?

If God created the universe, what created God?

We, as sentient and at least somewhat intelligent humans, exist. That’s not debated by most people. How, however, did we get here? Where or who did we come from? And if God created us, who or what created God?  Panspermia  Some have speculated that we got here through panspermia or even directed panspermia.[1] Panspermia is […]

Is the world enchanted?

Is the world enchanted?

Is the world enchanted? Or merely natural? Deterministic? Are we just chemical processes that have been wound up and will wind down? Or, is there a “ghost in the machine”? Is there something before and beyond? Can everything be coolly explained or is there the Unexplainable? Could it be that fantasy and fiction are tapping […]

Do we live for a mere inscription on a tomb?

Do we live for a mere inscription on a tomb?

Is there meaning to this madness? Is it just a rat race and then nothing but a cold, silent, and rotten end? Do we live for a mere inscription on a tomb? An inscription that will inevitably fade with the passage of time? Seneca Said, “When you see a man often wearing the robe of […]

Deconstruction

Deconstruction

Deconstruction is in vogue I recently looked at #exchristian posts on Instagram. There are a lot of them. It’s pretty popular to recount what is wrong with the Church. Why? And how far should it go? What’s deconstruction? Deconstruction is more than just saying what’s wrong with church. A lot of times it’s saying what’s […]

How can we refuse to bow like Daniel's friends?

How can we refuse to bow like Daniel’s friends?

How can we refuse to bow like Daniel’s friends? How can we as the Church in exile stand strong and share the love of Christ? Dandelions I was reading about and thinking about dandelions the other day. I want to warn y’all, what I’m about to say is a little controversial and some of you […]
