Hallucination, myth, conspiracy, swoon, or Christianity?

When trying to answer the question “Why was Jesus’ tomb found empty on Easter morning?” … … be hard-nosed yet open-minded. Like a scientist, follow the evidence wherever it leads.

Did Jesus actually die on the cross?

Take a look at what the medical evidence says.

Mozilla reaps the whirlwind?

After the new Mozilla CEO, Brendan Eich, was forced out last week over his $1000 donation in 2008 to a group protecting marriage agains erosion by same sex “marriage,” users of the Mozilla’s web browser Firefox reacted in outrage by removing it from their computers and web-enabled devices. The firestorm of anger at Mozilla that […]

Merry Christmas!

Luke 2:1-20 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in […]

“Good Christian B****es” should surprise nobody

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that […]

Margie Phelps reaches new heights of self-parody

Many thanks to Twitter. You just can’t make this stuff up. But hey, what else would you expect from a whackjob cultist and publicity whore on the day that Steve Jobs dies?

The intolerance of progressive atheists

Here’s an interesting essay explaining a nonbelieving scientist’s perspective on religion in general. Now that Bill Keller, America’s Grand Inquisitor, has declared open season on the religious faith of Republicans (but never Democrats), it is high time for a non-believing scientist to express my love and admiration for the great religious traditions. Religion is by […]

Audio: Is the Bible intolerant?

I just ran across this at Stand To Reason. At a recent youth conference, Brett Kunkle helps students think through the accusation that the Bible and Bible-believing Christians are intolerant: Is the Bible Intolerant?

Still looking for honesty from the VA

Almost a month ago I wrote a post about religious discrimination by the Department of Veterans Affairs against Christian prayer at the Houston National Cemetery. The VA’s Press Secretary, Josh Taylor, had the following to say about the controversy back on June 30th: Invoking the name of God or Jesus is not only allowed, it […]

Veterans’ cemetery director censors Christian prayer

For years Pastor Scott Rainey has participated in a Memorial Day prayer service at the Houston National Cemetery, which is administered by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. Rainey has always prayed in the name of Jesus Christ, which should be no surprise coming from a Christian pastor. After all, Buddhist priests offer Buddhist […]

Yeah, um, about that whole Rapture prediction …

Harold Camping’s web site on May 21st: Harold Camping’s web site today: I have two words for all followers of any self-proclaimed doomsday prophet: due diligence. Mr. Camping’s first official public statement since his spectacular flop should be educational.

Harold Camping, con artist and false prophet

So here we are. It’s 6 PM on May 21st, 2011, at the International Date Line. According to Harold Camping’s “prophetic” utterances, Jesus should be in the process of snatching away all of His followers in what’s known among certain Christians — and among many bizarre cults — as The Rapture. According to Mr. Camping […]

Did Jesus really rise from the dead?

We all owe an infinite debt, because none of us is righteous. Who can pay? The answer to the question has eternal implications. Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no […]

Did Jesus actually die on the cross?

Perhaps William D. Edwards, MD, can shed some light on the question. We call today Good Friday because of the infinite good accomplished by Jesus of Nazareth through His physical death on the cross, as proven by His resurrection three days later. I am eternally grateful that He paid the penalty for my sins once […]

People hate this young lady

Watch the video to find out why.

An excellent rebuttal to Hawking’s atheism

Stephen Hawking’s new book “The Grand Design” purports to show that the universe created itself from nothing (more detail here), thus eliminating the necessity for the existence of any divine and omnipotent Creator. Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason […]

Video: Trailer for “The Dawn Treader”

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis were my absolute favorite books to read every summer while growing up, and “The Voyage of The Dawn Treader” is far and away the best book of the series (that’s not just my opinion, either). Along with spending time on our family’s boat on Lake Erie, I think […]

Happy Easter!

He is risen! He is risen, indeed!

Why do we call today “Good Friday?”

We call today Good Friday because of the infinite good accomplished by Jesus of Nazareth through His physical death on the cross, as proven by His resurrection three days later. I am eternally grateful that He paid the penalty for my sins once and for all, even though nobody (least of all me) deserves any […]
