God Talk 5

God is not only the creator of the universe, with its billions upon billions of massive stars, he is also the creator of the small and the infinitely small. Earth teems with life of all kinds, land creatures, sea creatures, and birds of many species.  It is also well to consider the multitude of microscopic […]

God Talk 4

For years cosmologists believe that the universe had existed eternally in more or less the same state. There was no beginning, and the physical world had always been and would always continue to be. Some scientists actually feared the thought of a finite beginning of the universe because of its possible religious implications.  But that […]

God Talk 3

Another argument for God’s existence comes from our almost universal agreement on something we call moral or natural law.  It appears that every human society believes that there are certain rules that should govern our conduct; and there is a remarkable degree of consistency in these rules from society to society, even in pagan societies.  […]

Shakespeare put the following words into the mouth of Macbeth. “Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creep in this petty place from day to day, and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death.” What a sad outlook on life.  We certainly cannot classify Macbeth as an optimist. Macbeth’s lament is the statement […]

God Talk 1

Over the next week or so I am going to present some arguments, or apologia, in support of faith in God – in particular, the Christian faith. As I do this, I make no claim to original ideas.  There is very little new under the sun, and I have borrowed from the writings of Augustine, […]

How Great Thou Art!

Perhaps I posted these thoughts before.  I’m not certain about that.  My memory becomes a bit fuzzy at times.  Anyway, it does no harm to repeat them.  After all, truth is truth.  When I was a very little boy someone told that the sun was much bigger than the earth.  I looked up at that […]

Vibrations

I am not a physicist, theoretical or otherwise.  I have a hard time understanding Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and Quantum physics tends to put me in an absolute funk.  But even the greatest minds are incapable of putting it all together in a comprehensible whole.  They have been unable to come up with a theory […]

Freedom Ring!

My country, ’tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing; Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims’ pride, From ev’ry mountainside Let freedom ring! My native country, thee, Land of the noble free, Thy name I love; I love thy rocks and rills, Thy woods and templed hills; My heart […]

Have a Blessed Easter

Tomorrow we celebrate the resurrection of our blessed Lord and Savior.  At this time I have chosen to repeat some things I wrote before.  Please read and think about it. I have always appreciated the writings of C.S. Lewis.  I have paraphrased some of his arguments in the following paragraphs. We will never understand God […]

Faith of Our Fathers

    Some months ago I posted an article in defense of the Christian Faith.  Here I am reposting the article with some additions, subtractions and modifications.  I do this because to me, and I hope to you, it is the most important subject in the world.  I believe it a matter of life and […]
