Thanks for returning for the final installment of my worldview series. There are three primary monotheistic religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The Christian worldview is unique in that it centers on Jesus Christ. Today we will look at six important pillars of the Christian worldview. Christians believe that God created the world and all things… Continue reading Worldview Series Part 3 of 3: The Christian Worldview
Thank you for returning to my series on worldview. Today we’ll look at the secular worldview, particularly at its rejection of absolute truth. The secular worldview rejects God. Darwin cut God out of the founding of Earth and life; Freud reduced man to so many urges; Nietzsche declared the death of God; and Marx's Communist… Continue reading Worldview Series Part 2 of 3: The Secular Worldview
This is the first of a three-part series I’ve wanted to do for some time, a subject that is of supreme importance but sadly neglected in mainstream Christian circles: the topic of worldviews and their impact on society. Today we will explore the very basic concept of a worldview; part 2 will cover the secular… Continue reading Worldview Series Part 1 of 3: What is a Worldview?
We all struggle with perfection. We fall short as spouses, parents, Christians; we don’t look how we want to look. We didn’t get the education we’d hoped for or the career we dreamed of. These insecurities can eat away at our contentment and quality of life. Add to that our 24/7 exposure to advertisements and… Continue reading Attainable Perfection
What a year 2017 has been! My life is very different than it was a year ago. God has profoundly blessed my family, and I thank him every day. It’s a wonder that I still find myself lacking in faith when he has provided the seemingly impossible. New Year’s Eve is a strange mix of… Continue reading Saying Goodbye to 2017
I sat through lessons and sermons by countless teachers and preachers during my teenage years. Teenagers seem to terrify Christian leaders, both men and women; by listening to many of them, you’d think that most Christian teenagers are rabid animals that need to be chained to the floor or they’ll rip off their clothes and… Continue reading The Bible’s Lost Message for Young People
The new Wonder Woman movie caused quite a stir among feminists and women this summer. Some were even brought to tears by the female superhero blockbuster. That’s cool; I’ve got no beef with Wonder Woman. But it is surprising to me: why does such a (let’s be honest here) trivial representation of female strength move… Continue reading My Wonder Woman
Today we’ll talk about a question I’ve been thinking about for a long time: does God care about politics? Some Christians seem to mistakenly believe that being a Republican means you are a good Christian. (Keep an eye out for an upcoming post that I plan to write: Why I’m a Conservative But Can't Stand… Continue reading Does God Care About Politics?
The faith of Peter, bold and deep, Like raging waters on which he stept; Early named you Son of God, When pained you, with much bitterness wept. The faith of Noah, tho’ faced with scorn, What edifice of faith he built! Those waters of destruction great, Their roar, his faith, they could not wilt.… Continue reading Prayer for Faith
I’ve been blessed to live an incredibly happy life so far. But sometimes we realize how sad life really is; how incredibly fragile we are and how quickly life goes by. We lose people, and we don’t see those we love as often as we’d like. I lost my grandpa this year, the first person… Continue reading Goodbye, Zesi
