Debate: A Satanic Statue

In 2012, a lawmaker privately funded a monument to the Ten Commandments erected on the grounds of the Oklahoma State Capitol.  Since then, there have been a few lawsuits questioning the legality of such a monument on grounds of separation of Church and State from Atheist groups as well as the ACLU.  While these lawsuits …

Doctrine Trumps Relationship

I have never watched Duck Dynasty, nor do I ever care to.  Part of it is that I do not like to watch much television, part of it is that I am not a fan of reality TV, and the final part is that I do not like the pure commercialization of Duck Dynasty paraphernalia.  …

Intoleration Nation

I just read in the news today that the owner of Sweetcakes in Oregon is closing down its business after a same-sex couple was refused service.  The state has a provision on the law books that prevents denial of private business services based on sexual orientation.  The debate has its supporters and opponents, with one …

For today’s article, I wanted to resurrect a letter that I wrote almost five years ago.  To set the stage, I had just graduated with my doctors degree and I was teaching at Bucknell University.  I was always in contact with several of my teachers from High School and I noticed that my old principal …

The End is (not) Near

The world is abounding with news of the end of the world. Some people are really freaked out about it and others are comically planning ‘End of the World’ parties. That is expected as Peter says that scoffers will come and make light of the end of the world predictions (2 Peter 3:3-9). But Christ …

How Could a Good God Let This Happen?

Bullets echo through the halls of schools, the corridors of malls, and the darkness of theaters. Gun control proponents scream to ‘get guns out of American society!’ and the world breaks into tears wondering why this would happen…again, and then someone, probably an agnostic, asks if there is a Good God, how could He let …

God is the Source

The Cedars are the beautiful trees of Lebanon which were used in the Lords temple created by Solomon.  They are magnificent trees considered of high value in the Holy Land.  The Cedars category comes from the study title that an old pastor of mine used as a method for discipleship.  It is based on the …
