Adams State University’s “Sex in the Dark”

Adams State University is my alma mater. I still live in the town where it’s located, and I know members of the faculty and some of the students through my local church. I still care very much for the school, and want to minister to the campus. Last year I heard about an event the school held called “Sex in the Dark.” “Sex in the … Continue reading Adams State University’s “Sex in the Dark”

National Freethought Day

Today (October 12th, 2018) marks another strange holiday in a country that loves to invent new holidays. Today is National Freethought Day, and it is not to be confused with National Freethinkers Day, which is in January.  (That seems a tad redundant. I guess we not only need a national day of prayer, but a national day of prayers too, but I digress.) The website … Continue reading National Freethought Day

The Veil of Ignorance

Dogma Debate Recently, Justin Brierley had a debate with David Smalley on Smalley’s radio podcast show, Dogma Debate. The two were debating the existence of God as argued for in Brierley’s new book. Brierley comes from a very different perspective than I do in terms of theology and apologetics, and thus, the vast majority of his answers went in directions different than I would have … Continue reading The Veil of Ignorance

Evolution in the Public School

One subject I have been overdue to write on is the issue of evolution, specifically regarding public education and the indoctrination of the youth. I received my undergraduate degree in secondary English education. I was very excited to become a public educator until the opportunity to be a pastor presented itself. Although I did not enter education, it has been, and always will be, an … Continue reading Evolution in the Public School

My Conversation with Jim the Atheist

It’s been a while since I have had an extended dialogue with an Atheist. I wanted to share one I recently had in the comment section of my most recent post. I share it for a couple reasons. It remained civil. We were at times blunt, but conversations of this nature require that. Certainly, much of Jesus’ language falls into a similar category. However, given Jim’s … Continue reading My Conversation with Jim the Atheist

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule Any person who professes any form of Atheism will find themselves regularly in conversations about morality. Objective ethics has become the Achilles’ heel of the position which asserts a universe without God is possible. What I have found strikingly interesting over the years is how many non-Christians will cling to the Golden Rule rule as being a moral standard for themselves. I … Continue reading The Golden Rule

God of the Gaps

Recently, one of my good brothers in the faith posted a video clip of Jason Lisle explaning, in short, the Presuppositional defense of the Christian faith. His book, The Ultimate Proof of Creation was a major catalyst for my conversion to this apologetic method, and his book Understanding Genesis is one of the best reads on Biblical interpretation that any lay person could possibly get their hands on. However, … Continue reading God of the Gaps

Columbus Day & Darwin

  The Irony  We live in a nation of unbelievers who, on one hand, hate Columbus for his genocide, yet, they turn around and vote to keep genocide “safe and legal.” Assuming Columbus was a mass murdering lover of genocide, he doesn’t hold a candle to 60 million. Our nation is a nation of genocide still. We still love to slaughter innocent people. Only now … Continue reading Columbus Day & Darwin

Illdigestional

In at least two of his debates, Dan Barker has attempted to refute the presuppositonalist challenge to his worldview that it cannot account for the unchanging, immaterial, universal logical laws that govern the debate itself. He makes this claim against Rev. Joe boot here. He again makes it in his debate with Dr. James White here. I think he may even make it in this debate here.  The … Continue reading Illdigestional
