God’s Judgment on Sexual Perversion

Scripture correlates three times in history when the severe judgment of God is upon ungodly people committing egregious sexual sins – in the days of Noah (Genesis 6), in the days of Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19), and in the day when Christ will be revealed at the Rapture to judge “defiling dreamers” [...]

The Essential Church

The recent movie The Essential Church is an excellent illustration of the conflict between church and state during the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020-21. It addresses the important issue of if and when Christians must disobey civil government. The institution we call government is one of the three main institutions ordained by God. The other two [...]

The Mother of all Lies

Denying the truth of Genesis is the "Mother of all lies." Today, our culture is full of lies and misinformation.  We are fast approaching the situation in George Orwell’s classic, 1984, where the Ministry of Truth disseminated lies, propaganda and misinformation.  Our information gatekeepers (mainstream media and the tech giants) are currently in league with [...]

What about Extraterrestrial Life?

  Evolved or Created? We know God created two forms of intelligent life – angels and mankind. Popular science fiction adds a third form of intelligent life that evolved – extraterrestrial intelligent life (ETIL).  It’s still fiction because even with all the billions of dollars spent in search of ETIL, none has been found. Christians should [...]

Metamorphosis

If anything, the process of metamorphosis, should point us to the incredible design of our Creator God, and put to rest the foolishness of biological evolution.  The term “metamorphosis” comes from the Greek term metamorphoo, which means to be transformed or changed into another form.  We use the term for the amazing transformation that takes [...]

The Rainbow

Bristol (England)-based wildlife filmmaker Sam Rowley, 25, captured this stunning image of a circular rainbow with his drone during a camping trip near Invergarry in Scotland, the United Kingdom on 21 August.  A circular rainbow is known as a “glory.” The rainbow is a beautiful God-designed natural phenomenon.  The first rainbow was seen by Noah [...]

God’s Trinitarian Creation and Institutions

From eternity past God has always been a relational God.  His trinitarian nature is revealed in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  He communed within Himself when He made man - "Let us make man in our image" (Gen 1:26).  God designed the whole creation as relational and often trinitarian as well.  For example: the space-time-matter [...]

A Biblical Perspective on the COVID-19 Pandemic

Recently John Piper wrote a short insightful book[1] in which he lists six areas where he thought God's sovereign purposes were being fulfilled through this COVID-19 pandemic.  I list those areas below in italics and then follow with my own thoughts. 1.  A Graphic Picture of Sin. God is giving the world ... a physical picture [...]

Is Old Earth Creation Reasonable? (Part 2 of 2)

  As stated in Part 1 of this blog, a Christian's salvation does not depend on whether he or she believes the earth is old or young.  However, this issue IS one of authority.  It boils down to whether we believe in the supremacy of Scripture or the supremacy of science.  True science is totally compatible [...]
