Strong and Courageous April 20, 2018 The story of the Prodigal son. Over the life of this blog, I have had three goals in mind with the content of the posts. The first goal has been to help Christian believers to have information available to help them to relate to the culture with more of an evangelistic perspective. Goal 2 has been to help seekers overcome some intell...Keep Reading

In these two passages of scripture, we see The Father and Jesus dwelling in pure brilliant and amazingly bright light. In Revelation chapter 1, Jesus is being metaphorically compared to the sun. These comparisons are rooted in the idea that we have no greater visual comparison to the unaided eye....
In last week’s post we talked about an important part of fishing is simply being out there on the water. This week I would like to drill down deeper into equipping us with an overarching understanding of certain processes that are often in play in the hearts and minds of those whom God is drawing unto himself....
It is an important question, particularly for those who do not believe that God exists. Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant minds on the planet, has espoused that gravity has the power and creative ability to be the cause of the origin of the universe....
Strong and Courageous Is it possible for God to exist if there is evil and suffering in the world? 4/13/2018 So the discussion goes like this in the mind of some atheists. Since there is evil and suffering permeating our existence, therefore God does not exist. God is supposed to be both good, and all-powerful, but he cannot be both in the presence of evil. Either he is...Keep Reading
April 6, 2018 Strong and Courageous How could Jesus rise from the dead? Since we have just completed the Easter holiday, I would like to zero in on the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and his appearance to many different people living at that time. Many theologians describe the resurrection as the virtual lynchpin of Christian understanding. Without this even...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 27, 2018 Meaning and purpose in life. We have been talking recently about aspects of a person's worldview. What is the overarching narrative of how someone lives out his or her philosophical views? Not only in the aspect of theory, but how we actually live out the need for consistency in the laboratory of life itself. Often times, a person w...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 23, 2018 Retraction I need to make a retraction today about last week's blog post. I usually post this blog on both our church website and on Facebook. So on the Facebook page, I received a comment from a good friend about some of the information that I had posted about how complex single celled organisms are. The comment spoke about other m...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 16, 2018 Is there any such thing as a simple cell? One of the main teaching points found in the Darwinian explanation for evolution is that life sprang up from non-living matter as a simple single celled organism. Then as time elapsed, this simple cell morphed in complexity, becoming more and more elaborate until we have complex multicellular...Keep Reading
In Psalm 105 and 106 David was recounting Israel's history and some of it was pretty bleak. In verse 47 of Psalm 106 he says 'Save us, O Lord our God' and that exactly what He did!...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 9, 2018 How Good is Good Enough? This is the question of the ages. Am I good enough to make it into heaven when I die? If you were to survey the average person on the street and ask this question, a large majority of the responses would be yes, I am a pretty good person. Well at least I am as good or better than so and so. In other words...Keep Reading
Strong and Courageous March 2, 2018 By Design or by Chance? Was our universe the result of design or chance? A very big question this is. It certainly has grand implications on how a person forms their worldview. Following are some quotes from some well respected non-Christian scientists. "As we look out into the universe and identify the many accidents of physics a...Keep Reading
