The Holmen Cross, Kristallnacht, and the Tyranny of the Minority: My Letter to the Editor in the La Crosse Tribune

I wrote a letter to the editor regarding the Holmen cross which sits on public property.  It was published today.  The power of the personal blog gives me the ability to comment further and even respond to other letter writers.  Let’s start with my actual letter. Beware tyranny of the minority It is not every […]

Church and State Separation Issues Strike Holmen and the Cross on Star Hill

The national issue about religious icons (read: Christian symbols) on public land has struck very close to home. This link will give some background to the whole affair but there are a few other things of note which perhaps in due time I will speak to. I have strong feelings about such issues and have […]

The Wonder of Easter Foretold in the Book of Daniel

In a blog entry noting that the book of Nehemiah had been corroborated by a recent archeological find, I explained the significance of that find as it pertains to a prophecy in the book of Daniel.  It is this prophecy that I would like to address in this entry in honor of the Easter holiday. […]

The Fellowship of the King: Graduation Speech, 2005.

If you really want to fix it in your heads what that path looks like and what it means to travel on it I want you to think of the books by Tolkein that have recently been made into movies- The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Doesn’t that series resonate within us so deeply because we secretly desire to live in that world? Do you think that is an accident? Some do! I am telling you that you ARE living in that world, if you have eyes to see it. You need only take the path to the right. As you make your way down that narrow path you will have to cut down vines, move boulders, and cross rivers- hard work, true. But you will journey with elves, dwarfs, hobbits, and men.

I am inviting you to join, not the fellowship of the ring, but the fellowship of the King.

The Best Arguments For Christianity

The best arguments for Christianity aren’t arguments at all.  For example, in this post here I even argue that pure, logical arguments, have a very limited value.  In fact, to really set the stage for my claims in this post, let me call attention to the fact that in the Scriptures, old testament and new, […]

Is Paganism or Atheism More Dangerous to Christianity?

Not long after I emerged from my own period of intense doubt, the Harry Potter series came onto the scene.  I was aware of the Christian criticisms of the series, ie, that it was witchcraft and promoted paganism, etc.  I didn’t think much about those arguments then and don’t today, either, for reasons discussed elsewhere […]

Bill Maher a Bigot? UFO’s more likely than the Christian Story? Is the Catholic League Right to be Offended?

So I just saw on Fox News Donohue of the Catholic League talking about the subject of their news release.  He was pretty hot about it.  The offending statement- as taken from the news release- is this: “But I think it is much more likely that there could be space ships from outer space, than […]

Just how brave and courageous and free thinking is atheism?

If you spend as much time reading the writings of atheists as I do, you see many chest thumping descriptions of atheism as being brave, bold, and the logical position of any rational person.  One of the clearest and most sustained presentation of atheism in that sense is in Richard Dawkins’s “The God Delusion” where […]

The Limited Value of Logical Arguments For or Against the Existence of God and His Characteristics

In the process of my return to Christianity I spent a fair bit of time dealing with what I thought was a foundational issue, that is, Does God Exist?  The rest of Christianity’s claims seemed to rise and fall on that.  This was the days before the Internet made everything easy, so my quest found […]

Metanarrative: Apologetics in a PostModern Society that Demands Modernist Evidences

I posted a very quick blurb the other day about how I was going to start publishing some of my short stories on my blog. I didn’t elaborate much on it, but I used the word ‘metanarrative’ in the title. To my surprise, I received a fair amount of hits just from that brief mention. […]

A Christian Review of Antony Flew’s “There is a God: How the world’s most notorious atheist changed his mind.”

I don’t remember when I first encountered Antony Flew’s arguments for atheism.  I do know that it was primarily Flew’s brand of atheism that I rejected and it was his brand of atheism that I seemed to encounter most often at the time Christian apologetics became one of my passions.  I met the news of […]

Herr Professor on Atheism and Badness: A response to his Response

Herr Professor has redeemed himself slightly in my eyes in his latest reply to one of my posts.   He follows my blog very closely so no doubt he will discover this response to his so just a word of reminder to you, sir, that I do not use my blog for discussion and debate.  Still, […]

Matthew Murray, the atheist ex-pentecostal that killed Christians in the name of atheism …

Now that I got your attention.  😉 No doubt this tragedy is going to be hashed out along ideological grounds for some time to come.   For my part, I’m not very interested in those kinds of conversations, though I do note again how for the atheist, any transgression by an individual seems to be grounds […]
