He could clean things up

Matt Dominick and I were heading back to his house after we had driven up to Twain Harte to help my daughter get out of some snow where she was stuck. Actually, she was not stuck, but just in a place that was downhill, steep and icy. Could not blame her for not wanting to try it. After getting her out, Matt and I headed back to his house. Near Twain Heart proper were two guys with several bags of groceries standing on the side of the road with their thumbs out. One of them, (the older of the two), was also waving a five dollar bill to entice the passing motorists. I was not surprised when...

If God created the universe, who created God?

If God created the universe, who created God?

One of the men attending our early Sunday morning apologetic class, Anthony, shared with me that someone actually asked him this specific question. We started watching the six week Greg Koukl DVD series on Tactics. At the end of the 2nd session, I made eight statements, or claims, that I wanted those attending to think about. The second one on my list was, “If God created the universe, who created God?” So when Anthony heard that one, it reminded him of someone asking him that question. This question has been around for a long time. What some of you may find interesting is that the response,...

Doubt

Doubt. If Christian is honest, that is something we all have had in our Christian walk. Despite my readings in the past couple years on apologetics, which does not mean apologizing for our faith, but defending our faith, doubt still creeps in. William Lane Craig shares a story in his book, Hard Questions, Real Answers about a student who came up to him after class one day and said, “How come everything you say confirms what my pastor taught?” Somewhat taken aback by this comment Dr. Craig replied, “Why shouldn’t it?” The questioning student replied, “Well, all the other professors in my...

Two and  Out

Two and Out. That is a wrestling term I have learned since my son Jed started wrestling in High School. It is referring to wrestling tournaments in which a wrestler who has two losses is out of the tournament. The past couple days were both a two and out for he and I. We both went to Sacramento for wrestling, but I also went to visit some Hindu temples in Sacramento to chat with the Pandit, (priest), and inquire about their religion, beliefs, practices, and how it compares to Christianity. We were up about 4 AM and I drove him early to school. The team left before 6 AM, but I left a few...

Handcrafting Disciples

Not long ago I had a parent come in and thank me for something I did for her daughter who is in my class. Her daughter had an assignment with all the other students, and part of the assignment required each student to stand up in front of the class and give a brief report. This student is extremely shy and had already received a zero when she refused to give an oral report. After this happened a couple of times, I talked to her about it. I managed to get her to agree that if I kicked out all the boys in the class, the next time she had an oral report, she would do it. The thought of this...
