God & Evil

Every once in a while, people will say that I make God the creator of evil and therefore I make God evil. I think that’s a weird accusation. To me, it’s silly to think that God created this world with no thought or intention of evil being present. Clearly He knew it would be present […] […]

From Adam to Moses…

Bible Trivia: If Adam wrote a book on his life, his memoirs, how the universe was Created, and more, it’s only reasonable to believe that he would have passed this book on to his kids. Or great-grand kids. And it’s only reasonable to conclude that this would have made its way to Moses. So… given these […] […]

The Roman “O”s

Perhaps you’ve heard of the Roman Road? How about the Roman “O”s? Start in and observe the downward spiral of man because he rejects God (1), his guilt by conscience and law (2-3), his failure to access right standing with God by his own works (4), the stain of Adam (5), the punishment of death […] […]

Christ’s Coming, Coming, Coming, Coming

Top Ten Christian T Shirts

A friend of mine showed me a new TShirt that he bought. It had a Christian(ish) message to it, and was made to look like a popular video game. In fact, you’d have to look pretty close to see that it wasn’t the popular video game. Why do marketers do this? And why do so many […] […]

How Do You Figure?

The other day I heard someone ask another person “Are you born again?” That strikes me as curious question. As any Bible student would quickly point out, the Bible uses a wide variety of figures of speech to refer to a person that’s been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. One wonders why some metaphors get used more […] […]

Who is the “God of this age”?

In , who is the “god of this age”? And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. […] […]

Passages of Fury

The other day I ran into a guy that corrected me when I happened to say that God calls His people to rejoice when He destroyed their enemies. He: “That’s not right!!! We’re to do all things through love and patience and goodness!” Me: “Did God tell His people to rejoice when He destroyed their enemies?” He: “… […] […]
