God’s Priorities


Is God more concerned about His Name or His humans?

This question is followed immediately by three other questions:

Can we think of any place in the Bible where God prioritized His Name above His humans? Can we think of any place in the Bible where God prioritized His humans above His Name? Based […]

Black-On-Black Crime?

Due to the Ferguson fiasco, every now and then I’ll hear someone try to pretend that black-on-black crime in the USA is some crazy rumor. That’s a shame.

Black On Black Oppression

Since all hospitals and police stations are required by law to report crimes to the FBI, the FBI’s numbers are the […]

Is Love the only fruit?

Every now and then I see someone read about the fruits of the Spirit in Gal 5:23-25 and pause at the singular use of the word “fruit”. Invariably, someone will say that the fruit of the Spirit is love, and that love expresses itself in all the other traits listed in Galatians.

I think that’s […]

Global Flood?

I frequently hear people trot out “reasons” why the Noahic Flood account in Genesis can’t be literal or global. I just have to scratch my head.

Was Jesus Silent On Homosexuality?

Pro-gay people will frequently claim that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality. His silence, they insist, is supposed to mean that a) He has no problem with it, and b) everyone else should be silent about it.

If you’re a self-interested speed-reader, you’ll find precious little in the Gospels about homosexuality. But so what? Jesus […]

Learn About Reformation Day!

Reformation Day is celebrated on October 31st and it commemorates Martin Luther’s nailing the 95 thesis on the Wittenburg Door and the protests against the sins of the Roman Catholic church. The Christian faith was profoundly impacted by the Reformers: Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Ulrich Zwingli, Jan Hus and many more.


Science & The Bible: The Missing Baby Steps

It seems like scientists always like to poke their noses into the Bible to explain how God “really” did things. Every now and then, we’ll get some sort of special on PBS “explaining” how God did the Ten Plagues through Moses, or we’ll find a documentary giving us the “inside scoop” on Creation. I wonder […]

Table Remake

These days it’s hard to find a good table on Craigslist. Everyone wants too much money.

But if you have an eye and a knack with paint and wax (and a good table saw and miter saw, etc), you can turn an ugly table into a neat table.

Here’s the latest project:

Death Sins

So, Jeremiah, do not pray for these people. Do not cry out to Me or petition me on their behalf. Do not plead with Me to save them. For I will not listen to them when they call out to Me for help when disaster strikes them. – Jeremiah 11:14

I’m working my […]
