Halloween is one of those issues that leaves intelligent, godly people firmly disagreeing with one another. Some Christians will dress up their kids, walk the neighborhood, and come back with heart-stopping amounts of sugar. Others will dress up their kids and go to a church sponsored event, like a...
Yesterday I posted on the economic effects of sin, and I cited a couple of examples from Vishal Mangalwadi’s book Truth & Transformation. Today I’m going to take the extra step and formally recommend the book. Mangalwadi has been referred to as “the Francis Schaeffer of India,” partially because he...
Craigslist is a great idea. Yard sales are so random, you have to be in the right place at the right time, and you never know what you’re going to find. But Craigslist essentially links every yard sale in your extended area so that you can find exactly what...

Yesterday I posted a video of Bill Nye calling creationists crazy for denying Darwinian evolution. “Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science, in all of biology,” he says. In the wake of this post, I came across a comment on the facebook page of a friend of...
