What Is The Gospel? What Must One Believe In Order To Be Saved?

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…

God & Stephen Hawking Dispute the Existence of Heaven: Guess WHO Wins?

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….

Reasonable Enough: Why Reason Does Not Compel Acceptance

It is COMPLETELY WRONG to say that I think atheists or any other non-Christians would agree with me if they would just open up their eyes and see reason.  I do not believe reason could infect someone [profoundly affect someone] so as to compel them to see my position as truth. I don’t think that…

God in the Petri Dish

The challenge was issued: “Sirius, please show us some physical evidence for your imaginary deity. Until you do that, you are a liar.” This brought to mind a similar conversation I’ve been having that was instigated by a post by Brooks Robinson on the obviousness of God. Let’s face it. There are always guys who…

Darwin’s Dyke: So much depends on Evolution: On Philadelphia’s Year of Evolution, Darwin Day & the New Desperation of Darwinism

“So much depends on evolution,” claims yearofevolution.org, a website showcasing the University of Pennsylvania and the Penn Museum’s intent to make a year-long celebration of Darwinism. The claim is common to Darwinist polemics, so it’ll be useful to critique the claims of the site. First, we should ask, What actually depends on evolution? Well, that depends on…

Palin makes McCain more palatable

McCain pulled an end run around the Democratic ticket when he announced Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential co-runner! The thing that really irritated the Dems on this one is that it completely took the wind out of their sails, especially when it was announced in the midst of the Democratic National. Now that’s good…

What’s Wrong With Church 2: No Children Allowed

There’s famous story in the Gospels about some mothers took their children to Jesus to be blessed. The disciples tried to turn them away under the basic assumption that the Master would not want to be bothered with children when He was doing some big, important ADULT religious stuff. They hadn’t asked Jesus. Jesus’ response…

Suffering: Job or Jonah?

Examine yourselves to see whether you be of the faith  – 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV There is this tendency amongst believers to judge a person’s spiritual condition by their physical circumstances. For example, we tend to assume that a man who enjoys a general state of happiness must be in God’s favor. Some of us…

Why I Am A Creationist 2

This post has been long time in coming, but I simply haven’t had time to put it down. My plate is rather full. My intent last time was to give my reasons as to why I am a Creationist. My last post can be summarized thus: 1. I believe in God… a. …because of the…

The Church of PZ “Wackaloon” Myers & Ideological Child Abuse

Yes, the title of this blog is inflammatory. Yes, it’s on purpose. I hope I have your attention. Recently, I made a comment defending Ken Ham after PZ Myers of Pharyngula fame called him a “wackaloon” and then invited “millions” [dream on, PZ. Neither you nor Darwinism is THAT popular] of others to pour some…

Why Naturalism Makes Darwin Unfalsifiable

Naturalism. By definition, it is the presupposition that the world came into being, developed [i.e. – evolved] to its present state and is sustained by purely material processes. God is not needed. Or so they hope. I think they’ve mistaken the concept of a God who is not wanted [by them, at any rate] with…
