    Dear Believer…A Response

    While the religious beliefs we subscribe to may be a product of our environment this does nothing to disprove those beliefs. And while science has led to a better understanding of the world around us it has done nothing to remove a deity but rather has arguably done more to prove intelligence beyond our understanding.

    Dogma Debate Radio: Love Your Neighbor

    Yesterday I was on the atheist talk show Dogma Debate Radio with David Smalley (www.dogmadebate.com). First, I’d like to thank David, Shayrah and Daniel for giving me the opportunity to be on the show as well as being great hosts.

    Love Wins [Part 4] – A Play with Two Parts

    In Professor John Goldingay’s class on Biblical Hermeneutics at Fuller Theological Seminary he introduces the Bible as a play with two parts. The first part of the play is the Old Testament and the second part is the New Testament. Between the two parts there is an intermission and if you leave during the intermission you only see the first part of the play – you only see the storyline being set up but never get the full understanding or see the culmination of the plot. Similarly, if you come to the play late and walk in during intermission to only see the second part you will have missed the…
