Why Unbelievers Wish It Were True

  • 4 July 2017

"The great question confronting modern humanity is this: Granted that the universe contains both persons (such as you and me) and impersonal structures (such as matter, motion, chance, time, space, and physical laws), which is fundamental? Is the impersonal aspect of the universe grounded in the personal, or is it the other way around? Secular thought generally assumes the latter-that persons are the products of matter, motion, chance, and so on.

The Vandalism of Immorality: Or why not to envy the glutton

  • 10 April 2017

As I dreamed, I saw a man named Evangelist turn and look down a road. In the distance, a figure was approaching. He was certainly taking his time. 

As he walked up, Evangelist greeted him cordially and they began to talk. They engaged in what appeared to be small talk for a few moments, and I learned that the man’s name was Randy. 

“Where are you going?” asked Evangelist. 

“Oh, nowhere in particular. I just go where the women are.” 

“And why is that?”

What makes Jesus so appealing?

  • 12 December 2016

Close to the heart of what makes the glory of God glorious is the way his majesty and his meekness combine.

And the unifying mark if these paradoxical juxtapositions is that the majestic heights of God are glorified especially through the way they serve or stoop in lowliness to save the weak.

A Poached Egg

Among these Jews there suddenly turns up a man who goes about talking as if He was God. . . . [W]hat this man said was, quite simply, the most shocking thing that has ever been uttered by human lips. . . . I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him. “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher.

How To See God

  • 28 April 2016

The Bible has some interesting things to say about the importance of God’s Word and how it relates to His personal presence with us.

Everyone wants to experience a deeper intimacy with God and feel a greater sense of His presence and be filled with more of His Spirit. And the Bible tells us that the main way that happens is through His Word, the Bible.

It is helpful to think of this in trinitarian categories - God’s word as a revelation of God, more specifically of Jesus Christ and, more specifically again, the Spirit of Christ.
