The Church: A forty year preparation for glory.
Studying the Bible has led me and many others to the realization that certain events that modern-day disciples are hoping will happen in their lifetime, if not in the future, actually took place in the generation of those who first adopted the name, Christian. This is important. From Matthew onward, we can read of an […]Read the rest
We are minds in the making.
The world is the way it is for the reason that it was conceived to be so. The rational mind cannot negate the facts concerning the reality of a universe that has all the appearance of being “called into existence.” No kind of random, unintelligent event brings order into existence out of chaos or matter […]Read the rest
Cellular Biology as Evidence for God.
Cell biology fascinates me. Understanding this aspect of life leads one to conclude on many other aspects of life. This includes purpose, plan, and providence of the human race. One of the very first lessons in biology is the ‘cell theory.’ It states that all living things are composed of a functional unit of life […]Read the rest
Ways to read the rocks.
Embedded in the sedimentary rock layers (GEOLOGY; of sedimentary rock that has formed from sediment deposited by water) are the remains of once-living things. Most are just mineralized bones but many are the actual bones of once living things. Some soft tissues which have mineralized can be found in extremely rare instances and many soft-bodied animals left their […]Read the rest
Keeping the myth alive.
Our science has been looking for Earth-like worlds for decades now. Radio signals, stars like our own, wobbles in the light spectra coming from distant suns that may indicate an orbiting planet, are all part of the search for other worlds with potential life. A recent discovery turned out to be “the planet that wasn’t […]Read the rest
What must I do to be saved?
The history of the development of Christianity as a religion is filled with heroes and villains. The creation of a political state out of Christianity with assumed governance over kings and kingdoms was one of many departures from the divine direction afforded by the New Testament (NT) epistles. Reformation did not come easy nor did […]Read the rest
The Problem of Polymers
One of the biggest problems and best kept secrets of all origin of life researchers is the problem with chemical reactions that do not occur in the nonliving world yet are required by the living world. Such biochemical reactions simply do not occur in nature, anywhere or at any time, under any circumstances but require […]Read the rest
God, Darwin and my Biology Class.
Everyone has an opinion. The most outrageously opinionated people get attention and are often published almost regardless of what they have to say; especially in our liberal media. No balanced views just bold, aggressive, exaggerated and aggravating viewpoints that make preconceptions popular news. I do like to read opinions since they are typically easy reads […]Read the rest
The Bible’s Pattern for Christians.
The pattern for Christian living and church life outlined in the Bible is the imitation of God. By Apostolic authority, the pattern revealed in the New Testament had little to do with the form of worship, recognition of a fixed liturgy, principles of the outward adorning of clothing or church attendance. Rather, the teaching to live as […]Read the rest
