Jesus Loves You (A Poem)

When we open our Bibles the first thing we see
Is the story of God and His creativity.
At this time, there was nothing around.
No light. No plants. Not even a sound.
God spoke it all into being, and with His powerful Word,
He created light, plants, and even little birds.
On the sixth day, God decided to say,
"What will I create on this day?
I have made all the animals now--
The dogs, the chickens, and even the cows.
I know what I'll do, don't you see?
I'll make man in the image of Me."
So from the dust God began to create,
And to mankind, God gave a shape.
Lifeless there, man was left,
Until God gave man His very own breath.
Lonely was man there all on his own,
So God gave man a woman to hold.
"How very good this all is.
I gave them both life, and now they both live.
And though I know they will choose wrong,
Eating My fruit while they think that I'm gone,
I already have a plan in place
To bring them salvation; to bring them grace.
All they'll have to do, you see,
Is turn to My Son so they can be free.
Giving His life, He'll save their own.
Rising again, He'll bring them home.
Nothing can stop this plan of Mine.
I'll put it in place at the right time.
In the meantime, while they wait,
I'll show them My love; show them My grace."
If you are reading this and don't have a prayer,
Look up to God, Who will always be there.
Remember Him Who took so much care
To take care of you in your greatest despair.
Remember Christ who gave His life
That you may live and might not die.
Remember God, Who formed man from the ground.
Remember He loved you even when there was no one around.
Remember that He loves you to this very day
No matter what you do and no matter where you stay.
No matter where you are, or what you've been through,
Remember that Jesus loves me, and Jesus loves you.

5 Things That Are Best Explained By Theism

When discussing my faith with non-believers, I find that the average person is oblivious to the explanatory scope of theism. That is, God's existence explains several things that would be difficult to explain in any other way. In this post, I am not presenting any formal arguments, but am just pointing out what these things are. Arguments will be addressed in subsequent posts.

1. The Origin of the Universe

Neither atheism, nor alternative views of God can adequately explain the origin of the universe. Modern science has lead us to the conclusion that the space-time universe that we inhabit had a definite beginning some 14 billion years ago (give or take a little). The problem for the atheist comes when we realize that any contingent thing has an explanation for its existence that is not found within itself, and that if something had a beginning or could have failed to exist (which describes the universe), it is by its very nature contingent. Neither do other views of God adequatel…

7 Problems With "Lack-Theism" Atheism

In recent years, atheists have increasingly attempted to redefine the words "atheism" and "atheist". Now, rather than being the negative position on the question of God's existence, many atheists have redefined atheism to be a mere "lack of belief" in God. They do not seem to care that there was already a term for this position ("non-theism"). This is often done in an attempt to avoid the burden of proof that comes from taking the negative position on God's existence. Yet, in attempting to eliminate this burden of proof, the one who redefines atheism in this manner has jumped from the frying pan into the fire. Here are 7 reasons why this definition of atheism is problematic for those who use this definition:

1. It Is Rooted In The Etymological Fallacy

In order to justify this redefinition, many atheists will appeal to the etymology of the word "atheist." The term "atheist" comes from two Greek roots, "a-" me…

Profile Of A Modern Pharisee

The Pharisees were one of the major Jewish sects in the days of Christ. Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus consistently clashed wit h this religious group on multiple issues. Even though the Pharisees do not exist in the way they did in the 1st century, many religious leaders and laypeople today still fit the profile of a Pharisee. Here are some traits of the Pharisees, both ancient and modern:

1. The Pharisees cared more about their traditions than they did about obedience to God.
The Pharisees believed in the Law of Moses, and observed it strictly. They were so careful to observe the Law of Moses, in fact, that they observed additional guidelines that were meant to help them avoid violating the Law. The Pharisees ultimately observed these guidelines to the neglect of the finer parts of the Law, such as justice, mercy, and love. Jesus clashed with them and called them out on this point (see Matthew 23:23-24). Today, we call this practice "legalism". Legalism is a hallma…
