The Undeserving are Chosen – Genesis 11:10-11:32

Experience the art for The Undeserving are Chosen – Genesis 11:10-11:32. Sarah is the undeserving individual through whom God chooses to act.  She has no family heritage, no ancestry from which she can draw pride...

The Nominal Christian

In a recent conversation, I realized that in India, the label of “nominal” Christian is very different than what I understood growing up in the US. In India, people are religious almost as an ethnicity...

Understanding the Character of God in Judges

Introduction Threaded through the cycles of Judges is the underlying character of God. Stitched with various literary techniques, three of God’s character traits rise to the surface: His desire for partnership...

The Greatest Love…

Greater love hath no man than this that a man laid down his life for his friends.  This statement is simply wrong.  Let’s try “greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for...

Are our health problems caused by our own sin?

The Black Paint of Sin The Fall, that ill-fated action which changed the fate of man, had such a profound impact that none can fathom the extent of the repercussions that have befallen creation nor envision the ideal...

Why would God create sin?

We live in a sinful world, created by God,  yet God is without sin.  This doesn’t make any sense.  Why, and even How, would a sinless God create sin?  So then is something else the cause of...

Inherently good or Inherently evil

I’ve been debating with myself for a while now on whether people are inherently good or evil.  Good in the sense that they would want what is best for others, but evil in that it can never come at the expense...

No other gods before me.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. When we read this commandment, we think of all the man made idols that exist in other religions. We think of the giant, gold statue that Nebuchadnezzar erected and forced the...

Holding out for a Miracle

I was watching some TV show in which one of the characters, the villain, stated that Americans spend over 20% of Medicare costs (almost half a trillion dollars) on the last month of a patient’s life.  The...

The Movie Reel

Can we move outside of the movie reel?  We actually belong there because the images on the frame are real.  Their perceived motion is not.  So our perceived motion through time is not real, but perhaps we...

Predestination Understood

The sermon on Sunday was fruffy.  My mind couldn’t focus on anything I was hearing.  So as usual, my mind started wandering more theological paths.  I looked around the room and realized that most...

An omnipresent God or a pantheistic God?

Is there really a difference?  A pantheistic God is not only within everything, it IS everything.  An omnipresent God is only within everything.  Of course, if God is within all of me, then isn’t...

Divergenism

BRHM.  In India, you might pronounce this Barahama (Brahma).  In the West, you might pronounce this Braham (Abraham).  It’s a pretty amazing coincidence that my uncle, a devout Christian, introduced...

God’s Name

This is a quick follow-up post to my last post.  After having blogged on the difference between worshipping Jesus and God, I went to church on Sunday and came across the exact topic.  It had nothing to do with...

To worship God or Jesus?

This is another post in which I’m clearly not ready to complete the subject.  I’m not sure if I’ll ever be, so let’s just call this a starting point.  Growing up, I was always taught to...

Science Versus Religion

This debate has gone on long enough.  And I have no plans on ending it.  As usual, I’ll just shed my own thoughts on the topic.  Ultimately, it all boils down to the fact that I could never...

Einstein’s Cosmic Religion

Who would have thought that Einstein, of all people, was religious?  I’m reading a book on his views, lectures, and life examples that illustrated his belief in a God.  I would say he was more of a...
