Online Radio Station Nearly Live

http://www.sntjohnny.com/radioportal.html

I had a weekly radio show for awhile which was broadcast online, and then in the course of things I had to let it go.  I have been ramping up for a renewed effort to make sntjohnny.com something special, with a target date of January of 2007.  Bringing back the radio show is a part of that.  More than that, the show is now on a streaming radio station, which even now, as we speak, is broadcasting some music and some other stuff- including the new sntjohnny theme song. 

The radio show I envision beginning will be an hour … continue reading...

Politics and Christianity

A discussion thread commenting on similar themes is here:

http://www.sntjohnny.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=2200

Today I attended a study at church on ‘Politics and Christianity.’ I don’t think many people who consider this question understand that the American situation is extremely unique in that our system explicitly allows Christians to express themselves, just as it does anyone else. For example, by contrast, in Romans 13 the context is such where the average person on the street, and Christians especially, are just outsiders. This complicates things a great deal for the Christian trying to make heads or tails on how or what our government should … continue reading...

Why Christianity is Different

There are a lot of people out there that think that religions are all the same, and a large number of those people are Christians themselves.  The idea is that there really isn’t any true explanation out there, and anyway, it would be rude, or arrogant, to say that you’ve got it, even if you think you do.  This pretty well numbs the Christians who hold such a view from doing any evangelism… it would be rude… but these folks forget that their Scriptures do not define ‘religion’ the way it has been used all over the place for centuries.  … continue reading...

Omnipotence, Omniscience, Etc.

I’m always amazed at how the same things come up over and over again from atheists. The funny thing is that they always think they’re bringing some new revelation, as though Christians and theists in general haven’t been hearing- and answering- these things for thousands of years.  Sparking this blog is this thread and the two threads it references: http://www.sntjohnny.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=2199.

A robust understanding of the ‘omnis’ of Christian theism… omnipotent, omniscient, etc… is easily gained by anyone spending time engaging solid Christian material rather than taking cues from skeptic’s ‘objections’ so I’m not going to expound on that too … continue reading...

Per fidem enim ambulamus et non per speciem…

That’s out of Jerome’s Latin translation of the New Testament. The translation is called the ‘Vulgate.’ It means, as near as I can tell, “We walk by faith, not by sight,” and comes out of 2 Corinthians 5:7 of the Christian Scriptures.

What is it about ‘faith’ that sets people’s teeth on edge? Some people will fight to the bitter end to insist that they do not operate on faith at all. (For a discussion between atheists, skeptics, and Christians, see HERE) Others cling to it in all of the worst ways. Like everything in life, there is danger … continue reading...

Some introductory Remarks

Welcome to my Christian Apologetics page. This site is a long time in coming and is born of many debates- both online and off. I personally nearly abandoned the Christian faith in college. For all I know, I did. God only knows. I did this deliberately. That is, disillusioned by my unanswered questions, I decided to forget all that I thought I knew and rebuild.

The process of that rebuilding has made me what I am today, for better or for worse. Many skeptics have decided to challenge the authenticity of my experience. I’m not entirely sure why that is. … continue reading...
