Imagine you are in command of military forces defending a castle. You have lots of things to worry about. Your enemy will use catapults and trebuchet to hurl rocks, incendiary devices, hornet’s nests and plague-ridden horse carcasses over your walls. They will use battering rams to bash in your fortified gates. They will scale your […]
Joel Watts, the misguided theology student who would rather Kentucky open up a porn shop than the Biblically-affirming Ark Encounter, has recently commented on an exchange between Rev. Paul Wallace and Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis. Rev. Wallace made the following statement: “But there are other kinds of illiteracy. There is, for example, scientific illiteracy. […]
Here’s the verse that usually comes to mind when I think of defining the gospel: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 AV 1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what […]
Recently, arch-atheist Christopher Hitchens, author of God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, went home to meet his Maker. I’m not saying that Hitch went to heaven. Unless there was some sort of deathbed conversion [and no one's saying that's the case], Hitch definitely did not go to heaven. This is a point on […]
My own drift from traditional Christianity to agnostic began shortly after I transferred from a Bible-affirming Christian school to a public high school. When I questioned evolution and the age of the Earth in my physical science class, the teacher scolded me and told me I only believed in Creationism because that’s what my parents […]
A few weeks ago, Joel Watts responded to one of my posts concerning the British Humanist Association’s efforts to mandate by law the exclusive and uncritical teaching of orthodox evolution in UK schools. He basically sided with the humanists that evolution needs legal protection. This is the usual reaction of extraBiblical creationists [those who give […]
If science cannot comment on the supernatural, then it cannot rule it out; it can only come up with all-natural answers that may or may not be true, and are most certainly false where supernatural agency was actually responsible!
Short answer: No. Now let me tell me why you are fooling yourself if you believe there is any such thing as an unbiased source or neutral ground in the origins argument. Microbes-to-man evolution is the all-natural Just-so story intended to supplant the idea of supernatural causation. You cannot add dashes of supernatural agency to […]
Jonathan Dudley, author of a book called ‘Broken Faith: The Abuse of Science and Faith in American Politics,’ has written a piece over at the liberal HuffPo called ”Christian Faith Requires Accepting Evolution.” It’s not just the grandaddy of non sequitur – it’s just plain wrong! And it’s too obviously a plug for his new book, […]
If you don’t have a home church (or you don’t have a home church that is giving your kids a solid Biblical foundation that will give them the tools they need to give a reasoned defense of the faith), I encourage you to come visit us at Gateway Church (270 Staunton Ave. South Charleston, South Charleston, WV).
Stephen Hawking essentially thinks heaven is a comforting fairy tale for those afraid of death. God, of course, disagrees, as revealed in His Holy Word, the Bible. In an interview published in The Guardian, the 69-year-old theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking claims says the human brain is like a computer that will stop working when its components fail. […]
It can be difficult to tell the difference between someone with an honest objection to the faith and someone who’s just throwing out smoke, especially in the blogosphere. I obviously engage in a good bit of apologetics online and off, but a lot of times it quickly becomes apparent that I’m wasting my time. There are other […]
