Do you have what it takes?

The question that haunts every man, “Do I have what it takes to be a man? Am I really a man when it counts?”1 John Eldredge address this question in his book, Wild at Heart. He gave several humorous examples that can ring true for many of us. “Let me ask the guys who don’t know much about cars: How do you talk to your mechanic? I know a bit about fixing cars, but not much, and when I’m around my mechanic I feel like a weenie. So what do I do? I fake it; I pose. I assume a sort of casual, laid back manner I imagine the guys would use when hanging around the lunch truck, and I wait...

Looking the wrong way

In the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, why would God kill Lot’s wife, Sarah, by turning her into a pillar of salt for simply looking in the wrong direction? *Warning of impending sarcasm.* God is a merciful God……….. right. This is the 14th of 50 Questions Christian’s can’t answer. If you click on the link you will see my responses on numbers 1-13. Turned her into a pillar of salt just because she looked the wrong way? Yet another strawman representation of a Biblical passage. Here is an example of a strawman. On February 8th, 2015, 27 year old Sawyer Flache, a graduate...

The atheist stood before the large auditorium which was full of Christians. He began his talk about world views, and told them he was an atheist. He asked how many of them were raised in the Christian faith. Of course most, if not all of them raised their hands. He then asked how many of them, if they were raised in India, by a Hindu family, would probably be Hindu in their faith. Slowly, reluctantly, most everyone raised their hands. He then asked them if they were raised in Egypt, by a Muslim family, how many of them would be Muslim. Again, slowly, most of them raised their hands. Finally,...

Easter Island

Most of us have seen the pictures of the Easter Island stone heads and wonder who and why a civilization would have created such statues. Easter Island is found off the coast of South America, specifically the Chilean coast. Easter Island is one of the most remote locations on earth. Yes, even more remote than the North or South Poles. One would have to travel nearly 2000 miles to find another human settlement, or neighbor to borrow a cup of sugar. If not for the island heads, Easter Island would be just another Pacific island among the thousands that dot the Pacific landscape....

Telling the Truth

Some non-believers might say we don’t know if the New Testament writers were telling the truth. People claim all the time to have seen Elvis and we know it is false. Seeing Elvis became a sort of pop culture joke, but some seemed to seriously believe it to be true. The infatuation some feel for Hollywood stars is prevalent in our culture. Some people become obsessed with a particular movie star, writing them letters, e-mails, texting them, reading their Facebook or Twitter accounts several times a day, all the while their commitments to school, work, family, or friends suffer. I think...
