Should we just leave the Bible out of it?

Here’s a situation that might be fairly familiar to you regarding a discussion between a Christian and a skeptic.  Part way into the conversation, a particular controversial social issue comes into focus (e.g. same-sex marriage, transgenderism, abortion, legalizing marijuana, etc.).  At some point the Christian quotes a verse or makes a reference to Scripture in general leading the skeptic to say, “You can’t bring the Bible into this!”  Too often, the Chris… Continue Reading

Can't we all just get along?

You’ve probably seen this iconic symbol on the back of many cars.  It’s the famous “coexist” bumper sticker.  When I first saw this, I thought it was certainly clever, but I was also disturbed by the message. What’s the general message?  In most cases, I believe people are wishing we could just all get along.  What’s wrong with that message?  On one hand… nothing.  I think we should be able to get along with those who ho… Continue Reading

Do you know?

During the course of our lives, events occasionally occur that are so traumatic we can’t go more than a few minutes at a time without thinking about what just happened.  The incidences are so significant, you can’t really think about anything else.I happen to be in just such a place right now. Only 72 hours ago my mom passed away! (July 30, 2016) Since (a) this is all happening when I normally send out my monthly ministry newsletter, which includes this “Question of the Mo… Continue Reading

What is nothing?

Many scientists today believe the universe popped into existence out of nothing.  The main reason is that since they do not want to believe in the biblical creation account, they are only left with two other choices: (a) the universe has always existed or (b) it came from something.  The first of these alternative options seems clearly to fly in the face of the Second Law of Thermodynamics which tells us if the universe has really been around forever, it would have “run out of g… Continue Reading

How do you know who to believe?

If it comes down to having to trust the word of a drug-addicted felon with a criminal record longer than your arm or that of a truly God-fearing, dedicated Christian, your choice might be fairly easy. Other choices might not be so easy and that’s we’ll discuss in this article. Let’s say you are listening to a debate between two Christians, both of which have PhDs in Greek and Hebrew and are respected by their peers. The first person makes certain claims about what the Bible a… Continue Reading

Should you take the Bible literally?

People often use words in ways that convey meanings other than what is intended.  In many cases, you might clearly know what the person meant, even though they stated something incorrectly and sometimes even conveyed the exact opposite message.  Personally, one of my favorite examples came from a television prophecy expert who was trying to express how exciting the Bible is and how much he trusted it.  After sharing a few passages from Scripture and some evidences for its Divine i… Continue Reading

What can hydrogen do?

I’ll need you to bear with me on this one.  No, we’re not going to get overly technical.  In fact, we’re not going to get technical at all.  Instead, we’re going to get a bit silly.  Not out of any kind of disrespect, but rather simply as a result of taking something to its logical conclusion.Proverbs 26:4 (NASB) admonishes us to “not answer a fool according to his folly, or you will also be like him.” The very next verse, however, says, &l… Continue Reading

Are we just stardust?

I’ve always been a huge fan of Big Band music… Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, etc. (Some of you know what I am talking about, but many are too young.)  One of my favorite songs is entitled “Stardust”, composed by Hoagy Carmichael in 1927.  However, that’s not what this article is about.  We’re going to talk about actual star dust. According to secular ideas about the origin of our universe, it began not with a “Big Band&r… Continue Reading

Leftover junk in your body?

Leftovers… some people love them, some hate them. My dad for instance, had a strong aversion to eating them. My wife, on the other hand, seems to thrive on them and is very good at putting together entire meals from seemingly nothing, simply by using leftovers (and they are always very good!). Evolutionists believe human beings have a vast array of virtually useless “leftovers” in their bodies. Furthermore, they claim these leftovers are strong evidence for evolution. Her… Continue Reading

Were dinosaurs wiped out by an asteroid?

It’s just something everyone knows… dinosaurs became extinct about 65 million years ago because of a massive asteroid crashing into the Earth. When I give my talk on dinosaurs and the Bible, I often begin by asking the audience to take a blank piece of paper and write down, in bullet point format, everything they know about dinosaurs. I say it might be one or two things, or they might fill the entire page. I then tell them to look at their paper and everything they listed and ask… Continue Reading
