My First Sermon – Psalm 148

Today I preached my first sermon at Christ Church of North Carolina.  I preached on Psalm 148 and the title of the sermon is “All Creatures of Our God and King…” I wrote the whole sermon out in manuscript form and deviated from it some when I preached it.  Apparently my pages got out of […]

I’ll just wear my glasses, then

There is good reason to oppose the syrupy, squishy, evangellyfishy, Jesus-is-my-boyfriend treacle that we see around us, but we need to follow scripture rather than reacting against the prevailing error. There is a certain aspect of American reformed and Calvinist culture that operates as if our bodies only exist to take our brains to and from church. I’d be lying if I said that I haven’t been influenced in some way by this. We are Christians, not Vulcans. Christianity is incarnational. Both of these ditches have latent Gnostic assumptions and both of them are inconsistent with the Incarnation. If you think you can do theology without it erupting into doxology, your theology is wrong. Period. I don’t care how many fat books with small type you’ve read.

A brief review of Protestant Biblical Interpretation by Bernard Ramm

Protestant Biblical Interpretation is a textbook of hermeneutics, which the author defines as the “science and art of Biblical interpretation.”  This was assigned reading as part of my “Thinking Biblically I” class at Christus Rex Study Center.  There is a lot of good material in this book, and there are only a couple of untranslated […]

No leg to stand on

A date that will live in infamy

Today marks the 200th anniversary of the births of Abraham Lincoln, and Charles Darwin.  These are two of my least favorite human beings ever, and the fact that they were both born on February 12, 1809 makes that one of my least favorite dates. Abraham Lincoln is the preeminent politician of modernity.  He was such […]

Microevolution? Really?

Many biologists, even most Christian biologists have stated that “microevolution” has been substantiated in antibiotic resistant bacteria and the like. I dispute that such things have been observed. They have been inferred, but not observed.  (And I would say they were poorly inferred.)  I would argue that all you see is differential reproduction and not […]

Something from nothing?

“Nothing will come of nothing: speak again.” -King Lear (I, i, 92) How the heck can life start from abiological processes? I believe this is the biggest problem with the theory of evolution. The belief that something can from nothing is at odds with everything we observe from science. In order for science to work, […]

Against Darwin – Introduction

I once had an evolutionist state that she was puzzled that many Christians perceive evolution as an attack on the religion of Christianity and didn’t understand how there could be so much conflict between a religion and a particular scientific theory.  My answer was and remains that Darwinism isn’t science—it’s a religion. Because Christianity and […]
