Response to an Agnostic

I never really know when I start the day what questions, comments or challenges may come up but they are often interesting. This past week was no exception. On March 13 “Gary” posted a comment to Dr. Tom Howe’s blog, “Brian McLaren, ‘Is Jesus the Only Way to What?,’ Part 1” Gary’s opening line really caught my attention: As an agnostic, humanist, and naturalist, I am sure that you view me as the enemy. … Continue reading

Atheism in Review

I have had the opportunity to get to know Dr. William Lane Craig and worked on research for one of his debates some years ago. He is a clear thinker and sound debater. The above 10 minute clip of his debate with the Christopher Hitchens is a case in point. In fact, wrote that, “Frankly, Craig spanked Hitchens like a foolish child.” Craig is correct in pointing out that atheists cannot simply deny that … Continue reading

Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance…logic can be happily tossed out the window.” A recent Huffington Post article, Children … Continue reading

Joy often says that time flies whether you’re having fun or not. She is right. Life is not static and is in a constant state of flux and change. Some dramatic and some not so dramatic but always changing none-the-less. As most of you are aware Joy and I are long haul truckers to support ourselves and any financial shortfall in the ministry. As part of that our company requires that we recertify on something … Continue reading

Life in the Mundane Lane

Joy very often tells folks that I am not happy unless I am going 100 M.P.H. with my hair on fire. That is a pretty fair description. But for me, that does not mean I live an exciting life but rather that I am generally focused on doing several mundane things at the same time. I can get a great deal accomplished each day because I am very focused, some would say I am OCD … Continue reading
