What’s Wrong With Christmas Is What’s Right About Halloween

Every year as the holidays approach, the Christian corner of the Internet erupts in a frenzy over whether or not a particular holiday should be celebrated. No holiday is more vigorously disputed amongst Christians than Halloween. Typically, I ignore the debate, but this year I read something that made me feel a response is warranted….

Should Christians Celebrate Easter?

It is a sad truth, but there are Christians who object to the celebration of Christmas and Easter as vehemently as they oppose participation in Halloween.

In Principio: Genesis 1:2 – Part 2

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” I had initially thought to move on to verse three when something about this verse called back to me. “..and darkness was upon the face of…

In Principio: Genesis 1:1 Part 2

​”In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” I know we just went over this verse, but it’s too profound to take at one sitting. When you meditate on the very first verse of the Bible, something strikes you. “In the beginning, God…” God was there at the start, at the very beginning…

When I was a kid, there were folks talking about how secular society was minimizing Christian influence during the Christmas season.
