The Liturgy and the Nature of Man and Reflections for the Church

In confirmation class in 7th and 8th grade my pastor taught us physical positions that we could pray from.  Keeling, prone, hands high, etc.  The idea was that humans are peculiar.  It isn’t enough to give mental assent to something, but rather for full effect we need to commit our bodies, too.  Not putting our […]

Christianity and Homosexuality Part Two

In the first part of this discussion I explained that I believe that Christians need to distinguish between how we feel about homosexuality as a matter of our faith and religion and how we feel about it as citizens of this country.  I had recently issued a call to Christians to do that on the […]

Two Kingdom Talk about Homosexuality and Christianity Part One

More than 60% of Californian voters affirmed that marriage meant what it has traditionally meant in virtually all places at all times. Judges came in discovered somehow that this determination was unconstitutional. If words mean anything at all, if you are a homosexual activist and you are honest you must admit that there is absolutely no basis for that determination.

Welkome WND readers!

If you are here after reading my debut on Worldnetdaily.com and would like to comment on the column, this post would be the place. My column on Worldnetdaily: “Apologetics the Cure for Social Ills?” The evidence of societal decay is all around us. The California Supreme Court decision is not an isolated event. Despite eight […]

Interview question on the writing of Fidelis- a post apocalyptic setting for moral exploration

I was handed a bunch of interview questions a while back and we actually had an audio interview but that interview is now lost in the hills of Argentina (I kid you not).  I have been answering them one by one on my blog at www.birthpangs.com but this one (and a couple to come) I […]

More Skeptic and Atheistic Response to the Holmen Star and Cross

If you’ve been following my posts about the Holmen cross/star, you know that my position is that the Village of Holmen took the ‘easy’ way out in its attempt to preserve the cross on Star Hill, and likely a foolish attempt at that, as they’re probablygoing to get sued anyway. I’ve been following the blogosphere […]

the ChristianPost runs my column in defense of CS Lewis against the charge of Paganism

I was delighted to learn today that the ChristianPost.com ran a column I wrote defending CS Lewis against the charge of Paganism. I mentioned this column a week or so ago, as my friends at LaiglesForum.com also ran it. You may not know that Lewis has been charged with such things, but even a half […]

Radio Interview on the Athanatos Online Academy

The spring session is nearly over but I just received this this morning and wanted to make it available. It ran on KCBI a couple of weeks ago. I discuss the purpose of the apologetics academy, the need for it (and apologetics in general) in the Church today, and the format of the courses.

Mormon Polygamy And Secular Hedonism and Media Hypocrisy

So I bet all of my readers have been following the Texas raid of the Mormon ‘compound’ filled to the brim with raging polygamists and abused children. I am not great fan of Mormonism, don’t get me wrong, but the whole affair has done nothing more than make me scoff. You’ve probably seen the sneering […]

Presuppositional versus evidential apologetics and naturalistic bias

I don’t very often get into debates about this but it did come up recently (by a person I make out to be an atheist no less) in the comment section of one of my blog posts.   I’m not sure what his final purpose was… did he mean to convey that we really should assume […]

The Atheistic Reaction to the Holmen Cross Situation: Predictable.

Predictable, yes, but whose listening to me? If you’ve been following my blog on this matter you’ve read about the fact that a church and state issue has popped up right in the town that I live in.  A star which has been on private land for some 40 years and could be lit up […]

Searching for the Atheist that Believes the Resurrection Happened

A recurring theme of late is that even if you believed the resurrection happened, that would still not justify the inference that there is a God or that the resurrection was a supernatural event.  There are some 500 posts or more (I kid you not) arguing about the ‘divine inference’ and a recent commenter has […]

Are your views on Abortion Related to Your Belief System?

Anecdotally speaking, I am very confident that one’s position on abortion is generally very closely connected to your beliefs and world view.   I discussed my thoughts on this in this fairly lengthy post talking about apologetics and the abortion issue.  I would like to move slightly beyond the anecdotal.  It isn’t quite to the point […]
