In the previous two posts, I have described the naturalistic worldview, and laid out an argument by C. S. Lewis against naturalism. In this post, I’ll offer a second argument against naturalism, this time by the American philosopher Richard Taylor. If you had a hard time following Lewis’ argument,...
Leonardo Da Vinci was brilliant. And not just in one area. He showed great skill in chemistry, music, architecture, anatomy, engineering, etc. Yet as he explored the world in an effort to find meaning, he realized that meaning would not be discovered through the sciences. You simply cannot begin...
This post is a response to one of the suggestions we’ve received on the blog. Here’s the question: “How does a Christian respond to the popular YOLO (you only live once) philosophy? Do you only live once? How many times do you live, if not? One? Three? I've heard some...

United States citizenship is a hot issue. Many people in the world would love to become US citizens. And many people inside of the US are trying very hard to keep them from becoming US citizens. Now, like almost every other American, I admit that I did nothing to earn...
Okay ya’ll, this is the post many of you who have been following the discussion have been waiting for. In the previous 4 posts, I’ve argued that a form of pacifism known as “non-resistance,” which says that Christians should not kill people, but they can join the military as...
Unlike previous posts, this will be more reflective in nature and written from my current experience (I am currently in Uganda). So, I just had an amazing lunch discussing the dangers of syncretism (the blending of two opposing belief systems) with a few pastors and teachers in Uganda. I was...
