Atheism, the Invisibility of God, and ‘Young Sheldon’

The first episode of the third season of CBS’s Young Sheldon is titled “Quirky Eggheads and Texas Snow Globes.” The show is a spinoff of The Big Bang Theory that was created by anti-Christian Chuck Lorre. In the Young Sheldon episode, Sheldon’s mother is concerned about her genius son’s mental condition. It seems that one […]

Some Basic Principles for Christian Apologetics

The following are some of the notes for a book I’m writing on the moral argument for the existence of God. In a debate on subjects where there are fundamental disagreements, a number of basic preliminaries must first be established before a meaningful discussion can take place. A certain factory worker had the responsibility of […]

Why Liberal Judges Rule the Way they Do

“[T]he English students at Harvard University once insisted on the Boston telephone book being placed on the reading list alongside the works of Shakespeare as . . . there is no greater merit in the one than the other. Good and evil are, therefore, totally relative to the society in which these values are held […]

Ted Olson’s Moral Relativism

If marriage is a civil bond, man can define it any way he wants. Ted Olson has borrowed ideas from the Declarataion of Independence to support gay marriage, but then by his own reasoning discredits the Declaration. When man chooses his own morality over God’s anything goes, and nothing is truly based on logic or […]

The Trap of Neutrality

According to a radio editorial some years ago, “a man’s religion and the strength of his conviction are his own personal matter” and therefore “religion should not interfere with politics.”[1] Of course, this too is an expression of humanist neutrality designed to silence Christians but allow for every other conceivable worldview to find expression in the public and political arena.

The Power and Authority of Words

In the New Testament, the Greek word for "authority" is sometimes translated as "power." Even though there is a separate Greek word for power, the concepts of power and authority are so intimately connected in the Western mind, that modern translators often view them as synonyms. But translations aside, there is a biblical distinction that should be made between authority and power.

Expert Advice (from a Non-Expert)

Teaching what to think, rather than how to think has become the new “normal” in our modern world of postmodernism. While postmodernism would have us believe that the concept of “absolute truth” is a quaint and naïve holdover from the 19th century, very few people ever live this way. It may be one thing to say it, but it is a different thing entirely to actually exist in a world of relativism. We tend to surround ourselves with people who believe the same basic things as we do.

We All Stand On and For Something

When thinking of the famous Greek scientist and great man of physics, Archimedes, (287 B.C.—212 B.C.) you might recall the historical account that has him running naked through the streets of Syracuse in Sicily crying Eureka,

Slapping the Face of God

The fairy tale of evolution tries to explain how species-improvement works. Whatever species is in question, we’re told that the wholly self-oriented yet purpose-free critter is always striving, though unknowingly, to make the species better and better by means of natural selection/survival of the fittest. The supposed process – which is not open to scientific testing – depends on “favorable” chance mutations and random chemical-electrical events within the “accidental sack of molecules.” But mutations, as millions of lab-sacrificed fruit flies will attest, only cause reduced, not improved, function.
