It is a favorite of blogging Christians to ask the non-believer/atheists exactly what evidence would convince them of Yahweh’s existence. I have read a number of atheists reply with a variety of different examples, but to my mind all fall short to some degree. Personally, I have no idea what would convince me of the … More Evidence for Yahweh is ……?
Fury as primary school tells pupils to say ‘Baby Boy Jesus’ instead of ‘Lord Jesus’ while singing Away In A Manger so that pupils of all faiths can join in. I have to admit I smiled after I read this article. Of course, when I lived in the UK it would not have been … More The War on Christmas?
As far as my very basic understanding of the Christian doctrine of the Trinity goes – but who really understands it? -the Christian god is one god with three components – Yahweh, Holy Spirit and Jesus. One of the never ending circular debates about this nonsensical doctrine is whether Jesus is actually Yahweh. I have … More Oh, for gods’ sake!
John Kilpatrick Three ways the sciences complement the Bible, Ark: • Cosmology — There was a beginning. • Geology — Mankind has dominion. • Biology — Life has a single origin. If you want to add the social sciences, we have also: • Archaeology — which never contradicts what the Bible actually says. • History … More ”Science Complements The Word of God”

Apparently not. Over at Wally’s spot he is running a post about the Rapture. This comment caught my eye. And for all intent and purpose the writer is deadly serious. As we used to say in the UK .

In a surprising, and ironic turn of events, today, on the southern coast of England, 250 re-born Christians had to be forcibly restrained by police as ugly scenes threatened to turn the quiet fishing village of Slumgullet-by-the Sea into a religious battleground. The focus of this zealous evangelical ire? A 32 year old man who … More Oh, Jesus H. Chrestus, it’s Reg!
Well, if you did read it twice all the way through, I feel even more sorry for you because you wasted your time by reading it with a hard heart, rather than a pliable one. It is not a book of words but a love-letter from your Creator, so if you spent all that time … More The bible: A love letter from your Creator.
Until I became interested in Christianity I never doubted there was a person called Jesus. Of course, like most Westerners, and a great many others I suspect, the image I carried around was one of a tall, bearded, white(ish) long haired imperious yet humble, stand out in a crowd person who strode around Galilee in … More Making up a god-man?

https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/sep/24/big-issue-no-mystery-science-and-religion-cannot-be-reconciled *The Apostles’ Creed (which is still regularly recited in church on Sunday) appears to require the faithful to believe that Christ died and was physically resurrected, that in turn our bodies will be resurrected and that we will have eternal life (“the life everlasting”). If we take these injunctions literally, I would expect that … More Science and Faith in bed together? Sorry, not a chance in Hades ….
