Jesus Christ is not a myth

This statement may seem odd to most folks but there are people who believe that Jesus Christ is a fabrication made up by early Christians. More on that in a moment.

This is a continuation of my series of apologetic posts on my theist views and why I believe them. Up to this point, I have Continue reading

Testimony from a former astrophysicist

This post is a continuation of my informal apologetic look at theism in general and Christianity in particular. I haven’t gotten into revealed theology yet.

So far, I’ve been accused by a few atheists of being dishonest, disingenuous, deceptive, hypocritical, practicing avoidance behavior and bait and switch, and generally being a dullard Continue reading

Mighty Hand | Jon Thurlow

This is a song we’ve been singing recently that has so resonated with us. It comes from Jon Thurlow’s album, “Heat of Your Gaze.”

God is setting His beloved free from her transactional prodigal religion of fear, where inheritance means more than relationship, for a life in the Father’s embrace of love. We’re finally seeing why the New Covenant “speaks a better word.” Continue reading

Why does God hide?

From time to time I get asked, why is God so mysterious? Why can’t He just come out with it? Why does He hide from us? Well, God doesn’t hide from us, He hides for us.

Why is this so? Because of love. God is love, and love requires free will to accept or reject love (see “Does evil come from God? ” for further discussion on this subject.)

So why the mystery? The reason is, if God did not hide for us, we would not be able to hide from Him.
