Limits on the Bible

Someone requested that I write a post on what Jesus says about homosexuality, abortion and evolution.  The person dislikes the position that conservative evangelicals generally take on these issues and wants to prove that Jesus didn't talk directly about these issues himself so they are being blown out of proportion today by Christians.  Of course, … Continue reading Limits on the Bible

Christian Theology Should Control Politics in America?

I think it should control politics for pragmatic reasons.  North Korea is a perfect example of what happens when Christian theology has no control of a country's politics.  The leadership of North Korea is afraid of Christianity because it represents a danger to the ruling elites control of that country.  Christians are routinely murdered for … Continue reading Christian Theology Should Control Politics in America?

Gay marriage and Wedding Cakes….

.....I am in favor of allowing secular gay marriage in the United States but I do not recommend gay marriage because it is not condoned by the Bible.  Many secular activities are legal in the United States that the Bible does not condone.

God’s Voice

  Some Christians claim that they hear God's voice directly and that God tells them what to do specifically in every aspect of their life. This belief is dangerous because it leads them to believe that they are infallible and in essence they become their own God.  Soon they begin to tell other people how … Continue reading God’s Voice

Hatred in Religion

Religion that claims to follow the principles of Jesus in the Bible but instead promotes man made rigid dogma is personally repulsive to me.  I have encountered Christians that spew hatred at anyone they dislike and they use some misquoted minor passage in the Bible to justify their extreme venom.  These Christians are not fulfilling … Continue reading Hatred in Religion

Is God fair and loving to all people ?

Life is short and cruel to many people around the world. The God I serve would not condemn a young child to an eternal hell because the child died without a missionary reaching him first with the knowledge of Jesus atoning death upon the cross.  God does not explain everything he does but he does … Continue reading Is God fair and loving to all people ?
