A Theistic Disputation

When I posted GOD TALK 7 on September 5th, I unknowingly stepped on a hornet.  A person identifying himself as being with Clubschadenfreude commented on my post.  I responded briefly, but upon further reflection I decided to answer the criticisms more fully. First, what is Clubschadenfreude?  I honestly do not know.  The German word schadenfreude […]

God Talk 7

At times it appears that some members of the scientific community, allied with the humanists, wish to destroy religious faith.  They demean our cherished religious beliefs and traditions as being concocted from a miasmic fabric of ancient myths and medieval superstitions.  They believe this world is all there is, and we should make the most […]

At the Gates

Wake up, you defenders of liberty.  The enemy is at the gates. I discovered this article on the internet, but I do not know who wrote it and from what source I extracted it.  I have tried in vain to locate it again.  It is so good that I decided to print it verbatim.  My […]

LGBT Activism

This post contains thoughts that I have expressed in previous articles. The LGBT community is relatively small but extremely active.  Regarding the modern era, until the latter half of the 20th Century it had only existed in the shadows of Western society.

Truth

  “Quid est veritas?” said Pilate to Jesus. What is truth?  Is there such a thing as absolute truth? Many people, especially those of a progressive bent, deny that there is such a thing as objective truth and say that truth is a matter of perspective.  They insist that all truth claims should be recognized […]

Holier Than Thou?

Non-Christians are often ill-informed on Christian beliefs and have little understanding or interest in what goes on in a typical Christian congregation.  The following paragraphs are written with the hope that they will shed a bit of light on the subject. As I write this post, I must confess my inadequacy.  I am no theologian, […]

In the Name of God

Every Thursday I attend a round table discussion with a group of 20-30 other men.  Any topic can be on the table, and the free flow of ideas is fascinating.  The meeting takes place at a senior center.  Some attendees are as young as 50, but most are in the 65-75 age range. Today one […]
