The Closing of the Modern Mind

As an addendum to my last post on science and faith, I’m including a couple of clips and the full talk with Timothy Keller and Jonathan Haidt at NYU on the Veritas Forum. I picked this lecture because it illustrates how people with opposing views can actually come together and have a  meaningful conversation.  Continue reading

Science and Faith?

I recently read a post at Nan’s Notebook titled, “Science…Faith—What’s The Answer?” The intent was to elicit open discussion on the merits of faith and science as related to human existence. I found the comments quite interesting. Nan is a deconvert from Christianity, but not a combative antitheist like some, so I don’t mind commenting on her blog when I can.  Continue reading

The Trinitarian God – Part Seven

The following from Jesuit, Karl Rahner, is a sad commentary on the Western church today. He said, “We must be willing to admit that, should the doctrine of the Trinity have to be dropped as false, the major part of religious literature could well remain virtually unchanged.” (Rohr, The Divine Dance: Trinity and Your Transformation, Kindle loc. 333).

I’ve already covered the theology, history, and the common objections to the Christian doctrine of the Trinity in this series. Now, I would like to share my thoughts and reasoning for why it should matter to us. There’s so much I want to say about it, it will take two parts.

As A.W. Tozer said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”  Continue reading

37 years ago…

37 years ago today I married my best friend, lover, confidant, partner, and woman of my dreams.  Our lives changed in so many good ways, but most importantly, Maureen and I became a “we,” and “me” became “us.”

I will be out of the blogosphere with my wife enjoying some time away. See you when I get back. Blessings to you.

The Trinitarian God – Part Five

In this installment of my series on the Christian Trinitarian doctrine, we will look at objections that skeptics have using the Bible itself.

When we look more closely I believe we find that most of these objections are taking Bible passages out of context and do not reflect the message of the Bible in context.  Continue reading
