How I know Bible is from God, part 6: Perfection

In this series of articles I have laid out several ways I know the Bible is from God.Please notice that I haven’t said that “I believe the Bible is from God,” though I certainly do. What I believe about the Bible or what you believe about the Bible is really irrelevant. My personal belief and your personal belief doesn’t really have anything to do with the factual reality that the Bible proves itself, in numerous ways, to be from God.I don’t...

How I know Bible is from God, part 5: Science

The term “scientific foreknowledge” is used in the field of biblical apologetics to refer to those instances where the Bible touches on various areas of science.While the Bible is in no way a “science book,” it does touch on areas of science like biology, astronomy, oceanography, geology, etc. One of the very powerful proofs I have that the Bible is, without doubt, from God is that whenever it touches on these areas of science it is always absolutely correct...

Responses to ‘Why is the world so dangerous?’

This article primarily contains responses to my July 31 article titled, “Why is the world so dangerous?” In that article I invited anyone with facts relative to this title to write me and I committed to include their pertinent facts which I am now doing.The most frequent criticism was that I didn’t include the U.S. intervention in Iraq. For starters let’s not forget that 9/11 had just happened. Further the House voted by 296 to 133 and the Senate by 77 to 23...

GOA is silent about the Michael Brown shooting

On Aug. 9, unarmed citizen Michael Brown was gunned down by the police. You would think that conservative gun groups like the NRA or the GOA would be rallying around the Brown family, and demand justice.But they haven’t even mentioned such an event.The shooting, which took place in a St. Louis suburb known as Ferguson, has received plenty of media attention, as Brown was gunned down. There are so many angles that gun groups could take. They could condemn the police...

LaGrange not that safe

I have some issues with the article published on August 02 in the LaGrange Daily News entitled “A Safe Place to Live.”First of all, LaGrange did not rank as the 50th safest city in Georgia out of 622 cities as the article and LaGrange’s Public Safety Director, Lou Dekmar, would have you believe. I cannot tell where LaGrange actually ranked; I can only say that based upon the info on the Movoto website, LaGrange ranked somewhere between 51st and 73rd, if at all.

Evidence that God’s not dead, thanks to the Ebola crisis

Earlier this year, the Christian film “God’s Not Dead,” was released. It was an indictment of academia, liberalism, and some business people, but as the Ebola crisis unfolded in West Africa and in nearby Atlanta, maybe those who attack Christianity aren’t who we think they are.In the film “God’s Not Dead,” a Philosophy professor debates a Christian student on whether or not God exists. That’s probably not an unrealistic event on colle...

Maintain our sovereignty

Sovereignty means being in control of your own destiny. Said another way it is freedom from external control. The United States of America is a sovereign nation. This obviously means that we make our own decisions and that we are in charge of our own destiny. Why then would we even consider yielding control of any portion of our sovereignty to some global super-government?We may be the only nation in the world with a constitution that guarantees our individual rights. Freedom of sp...

Under my skin

Chris, getting up from the couch ran her hand across my shoulder - she leaned into me and while gently kissing my lips pushed me backwards. Leaning back into my recliner I closed my eyes and once again, seemingly every day while falling into the arms of sleep - returned to the haunting memories that fill my life with love and a sense of deep loss.
