My open letter to Matt Dillahunty

In a clip I saw from The Atheist Experience, Matt Dillahunty asks the caller the following question: “Please provide an example of one demonstrably real, positively effective thing- that requires religion- that cannot be achieved by secular means.” He also asks a deeper, more fundamental question: “Why would you believe something for which you have […]

Responding to Jared Wellman in Love

(King David Embracing Jonathan) Jared Wellman’s popular blog, addressing the “culturally beloved song” Same Love, is really stirring up the fundamental Christian base. A friend of mine posted it on his Facebook page, I made some comments, and then I was blocked.  I have been considering these thoughts for close to two years now and I […]

Reflection on Nature during Advent

We create the world around us. I don’t believe we consider the ridiculousness of our world enough. I mean, we are so detached from the reality of what we have created sometimes, it just helps to consider an example: We cut down trees to build little homes (of course most of us don’t actually cut […]

The Satan of the Gaps (Pt. 1)

I can say without a doubt that most people I know believe in a literal Satan and that He somehow influences their actions in an intimate way, which leads them to Sin. It is one of those doctrines that brings the Pentecostal, the Baptist, the Catholics, and the Methodist together (which is just unheard of!); […]

My Solace

To Health & Prosperity: May those older than me be blessed with the strengths of their youth and may the youth be blessed with longevity. May I continue to age with grace and comfort as I have thus far. May I live a life of activeness and moderation. May God keep us in Health & […]

Ha Mashiakh

“I believe with a full heart in the coming of the Messiah, and even though he may tarry, I will wait for him on any day that he may come.” Although this was said many years after Jesus, those of us (basically every person that celebrates Christmas that doesn’t believe in the paganism) who see […]
