Some vaccines are produced using the cell lines derived from aborted children. Isn’t vaccination making the best out of a bad situation? But what if ‘making the best out of a bad situation’ is a recipe for creating even more ‘badness?’

Secession is the last non-violent option on the table. If we grant a ‘right to assembly’ we should similarly grant a ‘right to secede.’ Splintered regions certainly have some disadvantages, but it is far better that the people in those regions weigh the advantages and disadvantages for themselves and voluntarily choose whether or not they will bear the cost and risk of remaining separate from some other region. In my opinion, no union merely for the sake of having a union is worth the killing of thousands of people in order to preserve that union. Great Britain seems to have gotten that part right, and that is to its credit. Perhaps a day is coming, and sooner than we think, when we may have to draw a lesson from Scotland.

Never mind that Dawkins was rude. Was he wrong?

In the first part I sought to tease out the basis for Dawkins’ claim that what he said “follows logically from the ordinary pro-choice stance.” It is to the reader to decide if my analysis is correct, and if not, what the real basis is. It is important, however, to understand that Dawkins is not […]

Some friends of mine released a children’s book called The Villain: The Noble Adventures of Georges & Jean-Luc. I haven’t had a chance to look at it personally, but here is a review you can check out: The Villain: The Noble Adventures of Georges and Jean-Luc By Katherine Thompson Illustrated by Gary R Thompson Purchase […]

7. You’ve been in many dialogues with nonChristians. What is the most challenging question you’ve had to answer? Intellectually, why God should have had the Israelites kill even the infants of the pagan tribes. Culturally, I understand why this would have been done. I could even see God himself performing the task. Having the Israelites […]
Free and Cheap is Not Necessarily Good Stewardship; Also: A warning to those in Christian apologetics

We would be wise to avoid contributing to a culture of materialism, both in the commercial sense of the word, and the spiritual sense of the word.

No one wants to be told that they cannot play with their toy. No one wants to be told that their toy might even be dangerous in certain contexts–like the child that wishes to play baseball in the living room does not like being told to take the baseball bat and ball into the field, where that toy is more appropriate–or, that they shouldn’t bash people in the head with the baseball bat.
Apologetics Interview Questions Part 3: Intellectual State of the church and favorite Christian apologist

4. What is your opinion on the current intellectual state of the modern church? Some apologists have begun to heavily criticize it. I think there is no question that there are vast stretches of ignorance in the modern church, but I doubt the ‘modern’ part of that phrase is relevant. I’m not very impressed with […]

3. A lot of disbelievers have a problem with a loving God sending people to an eternity of torture by way of fire. What is your take on hell? I also had a problem with that. C.S. Lewis’s “The Great Divorce” provided the imaginative framework I needed to get over the ‘hump’ on this issue. […]

I was recently asked to answer some interview questions about my apologetics ministries. What follows are the questions and answers, in installments. —————- 1. Will you share your testimony? When did you begin to believe in God and why? I was raised in the faith and believed in God from my earliest memories. However, despite […]

There were two things that Coach imparted both as a coach and as a teacher. Both have been emblazoned in my mind: “Do not worry about the things you can’t control.” “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

How did we go from an overwhelming majority of Americans rejecting gay ‘marriage’ to seeming acceptance almost literally overnight, if not for the presence of powerful social engineers and manipulators?

I don’t normally descend into complaints about tiny things that bother me, but every now and then things get under my skin and I just need to vent. In this case, the most appropriate places for my venting were shut down, cold. If you are reading this, then you probably know that WordPress has decided […]
