Would Jesus Affirm Evolution?

I ran across a post from theistic evolutionist Paul Wallace that asks readers to tell him how Christ might answer the question, “Hey Jesus, Creation or evolution?” Paul doesn’t give his opinion directly, of course, but the way he frames the list of possible answers makes it pretty clear which way he might lean. In any case,…

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….

Reflecting the Light

Our reflected light is the result of beholding His face. As the moon reflects the light of the sun, but has no light of it’s own, we reflect the glory of God. When the moon is full, we see the most of the sun’s reflected glory, but what’s going on during a new moon or a crescent moon or a gibbous moon? The moon gets in the way of the sun’s light and casts a shadow on the Earth. Have you ever heard a more perfect description of our walk with God? Whenever God’s glory is reflected imperfectly, it’s because we’re standing in the way. The more we get in the way, the less light we reflect. How many of us are gibbous? half moons? crescents? How many of us would have to be honest enough to admit that if anyone were to look your way they would only see a black disc in the heavens, barely discernable against the starlit backdrop? How many of us could honestly say we’re at full reflection?

The Everlasting Gospel: Christ the Creator

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” – Colossians 1:16, 17 “In…

Who Leads You? by Buddy Dempsey [Guest Post]

Fellow Creationist Buddy Dempsey has a daily email devotional called Daily Bread Crumbs of Encouragement. His April 21st submission was a real blessing to me and I asked him if I could share it with you here as well. I encourage each of you to sign up for this email devotion! You can also visit…

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…

What’s Wrong With Church 9: The Edifice Complex

There was once a man who decided quite abruptly that he and his family should attend church. He wasn’t a Christian. He wasn’t raised in church. It was simply a notion. So he and his family got dressed up in their best jeans and T-shirts and went off to the local sanctuary. He enjoyed the…

Why I Am A Creationist 3

Inevitably, someone accuses me of being a Creationist simply because I was raised that way. If I’d been born into the Muslim world, I’d be a Muslim, they say. If I’d been born into one of USAmerica’s Coastal Ignorance belts, I’d be a godless liberal. Et cetera ad nauseam. The problem with this analogy is…

What’s Wrong With Church 3: Televangelists! Televangelists! Televangelists!

Is there anything more disgustingly and blatantly [dare I say, grossly] hypocritical than a televangelist? Seriously. How much good are these guys really doing [for anybody other than themselves]? They’ve given Christ a bad name ever since the PTL scandals of the eighties and nineties. You can just flip onto those channels at a random…

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…
