Peter, who went from Petros (pebble) to Petra (boulder). Conclusion: names matter. They carry a spiritual promise. Apparently from Adam on....

Neils Bohr and Albert Einstein, in the 1920s, held regular debates regarding the nature of our universe, specifically whether our reality was made up of particles (which had one constant role to play) or waves (which could have more than one function).

And most black organizations too.  (Jews are also responsible for the slave trade.

We all know the Bible contains lots of God’s promises to His own. At least 3573 actually.(Someone counted). In fact, the word “promise" itself occurs over 50 times in the Bible.

Many believers don’t seem to know that the Bible actually contains a succinct, comprehensive and straightforward summary of the tribulation.

An internet blog called the “Skeptics Report”, labels the Ice Age as one of the things that creationists hate, because, among other reasons,  It’s never mentioned in the Bible. "Skeptic” goes on to say, “How could the “True History of the World” miss that?” Well…the true history of the world didn’t. Because it doesn’t end with Genesis....

Remember those wristbands that became the rage about 15 years ago that asked, “What would Jesus do?" They were meant to remind the wearer to act in love. Like, Jesus. Amen? The Bible says that Jesus came for one specific hour, however. (John 12:27) Meaning the crucifixion. So maybe a better question is Jesus do?"...

Disney’s release of Aladdin coincided with the construction, in west Chester, OH, (just north of Cincinnati) of a resplendent new mosque.

But I didn’t know just how far from little girl fantasies it really was. ...

Joseph Campbell, the “father of comparative mythology”, considered the Scriptures themselves mythology, once saying that the Biblical story of Joseph should not be considered, in any way, shape, or form, historical. Sorry, Joe, but that dog won’t hunt. In fact, there’s more evidence for the Biblical Joseph than there is for you....

A church I visited recently, as an overture to the service, played (I am not making this up) the song “Jump” by Van Halen.  A totally righteous version (pun intended), and appropriately, without the words  which involve a guy trying to pick up a girl in a bar).  But here’s my question: Why?...

Today’s Fun Fact: the word "go" occurs 1,358 times in the Bible. Which doesn’t mean much without the contrapositive: the word "stay" appears only 53 times. And in half of the first eight--(which is as far as I checked) -- the word “stay” was actually used in the negative. Meaning used in statements that said, “Do not stay”.  All I can say is that in the research world, a ratio of 1358 to 53 is definitely statistically significant. And, that means that the difference should tell us something meaningful. I need meaningful, because at the moment, it’s also personal. ...

There is a principle in scientific thinking (Ockham’s razor) that was developed by a thirteenth century clergyman and scientist named Ockham. The principal, in laymen’ terms says, "don’t assert what you can’t prove. Today’s scientists, however (who apparently watched way too much Barney with their kids), have developed a different take on the ‘razor”, (a strategy to cut through data to arrive at truth).  Their version? “Use your imagination….”. ...

I’m currently writing a book about how God created our amazing universe, motivated by the fact that after ten years of serious study of both Genesis and modern science’s account I  am regularly blown away by the fact that, like Sir Francis Bacon once said, “a little science estranges man from God; a lot of science brings him back". Meaning scientists do their science thing, but ultimately always end up where Genesis has been patiently waiting for science to catch up. ...

What’s my favorite book of the Bible? No Contest. Daniel. Chock full of both history and prophecy, my all-time favorite topics. To me it is endlessly fascinating.  It’s also a favorite of Bible skeptics. For sort of the same reasons: there’s  lots of prophecy and history from which to manufacture supposed contradictions.  Exhibit A: "The German School of Higher Criticism"; circa 1800’s....

Most of us know that God specifically gave the land of Israel to the Jews in Genesis 15:7. And that, nearly from the minute the words were spoken, (largely due to multiple mortal enemies in consistently easy reach), they’ve had kind of a hard time keeping it. Which, as you may have also noticed, seems to be fine with the rest of the world. Fortunately, it's not up to the world. ...

As somebody who’s never lived closer than 700 miles from a large body of water, I’ve never had any desire to actually immerse myself in an ocean.

So, oceans? Not for me.  Till last week....

Today’s passage is Psalm 13, which commands all servants of the Lord (that should include everybody reading this today) to bless the Lord. But what does that really mean? We say “bless you” when someone sneezes. When we say that we “blessed a fellow Christian” it often involves an exchange of cash. But exactly how do you bless the Lord? It’s a command, right?

Of all the  principle players in the Christmas Story, the most enigmatic, in my humble opinion, is Simeon. The guy who was in charge, at the time, of circumcision for new male additions to the Jewish Tribe. The Bible calls him just and devout, waiting for the  consolation of Israel, otherwise known as the Messiah. Kind of a mysterious fellow too, because one look at the  newborn Jesus and he says, “I can depart in peace”....
