As I've stated before in my writings, it is all too often assumed that atheists are truthful people. When atheists debate or question or mock Christianity, many people listening to them have this tendency to automatically assume that since it came from the mouth of an atheist, then they must have a valid point because they… Continue reading Since atheists deceive themselves, they’ll deceive you too
The Pentagon, in an effort to develop new policies regarding religious "tolerance", has solicited the help of Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. He is known for his anti-Christian, anti-Bible rants across the Internet. With his very Hitler-esque rhetoric, he has accused non-violent Bible-believing conservatives as being "extremist" and "militant" in their… Continue reading U.S. military continues its endtimes transformation
Throughout the Bible, God places the utmost importance on his word, whether his word is spoken or written. In fact, his word is so important that he has elevated it higher than his own name, including the name above every name--the Lord Jesus Christ. Here's what Psalm 138:2 tells us:I will worship toward thy holy… Continue reading Why God’s word is above his name
These are some general facts to compare Jehovah with Allah and Christianity with Islam since some believe them to be the same God and recent attempts try to marry the two in the race toward one world religion (Islam was established about 600 years after Christianity): Allah, worshipped in pre-Islamic Arabia, is the god Muhammad’s… Continue reading The crescent & the cross: why Chrislam just won’t work

Pedophiles want access to Boy Scouts
Several years ago I did a post entitled "Judge not, lest ye be judged" that covered what Christ really meant when he spoke those popular words often quoted by those who hate even the most constructive of criticisms. Tied to those words of Christ that are quoted out of context is the notion that since… Continue reading Nobody’s perfect so don’t criticize (a self-defeating argument)
The idea of working and striving to achieve rewards is an integral part of the gospel. The Lord lets us know several times in scripture that once we receive the free gift of salvation by God's unmerited, unearned favor toward us, he is expecting a proper return on his investment from us. And the encouraging… Continue reading All God’s children got a crown
Is laziness a sin or a genetic defect? According to a team of scientists at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, it's probably a genetic predisposition for certain people to be lazy. How did they find this out? They used selective breeding to mate more active lab rats with other active lab rats… Continue reading A laziness gene? Really?
I thank God I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home, the son of a preacher married to a church pianist. Our house was filled with music when I was growing up and a big chunk of the music was soul gospel, southern gospel, and Christian contemporary music. I've had critics of Christianity… Continue reading Songs of the faith that helped shape my life
Candida Moss, a New Testament professor at Notre Dame, is one among a rising number of critics of Christianity who are promoting a revisionist history that denies Christians were ever persecuted severely. Moss claims that the stories recorded in the annals of history such as Foxe's Book of Martyrs were fabrications or exaggerations that have… Continue reading Are Christians crying wolf about persecution?
