  • Easter and Public Schools

    While 2 billion Christians around the world prepare to celebrate Easter, millions of public school children in America won’t be learning about the religious aspects of this holiday.

    However, contrary to what many educators think, a new report released this week documents that state academic standards not only allow, but in some cases, expect public schools to teach about Jesus, the Bible, and Christianity. Gateways to Better Education has published this online report, titled “The Bible in State Academic Standards.” The 230-page report highlights state-by-state academic standards indicating ample opportunity for educators to teach about the Bible, Christian beliefs, and Christians who were influential in history.
  • Stupidest trend ever?

    A Dutch teenager was arrested Monday for tweeting a bomb threat at American Airlines. For some reason, this caused many others to think that tweeting bomb threats at American Airlines was a really great idea.

  • God Created the Amoeba

    I've often wondered what God was thinking when he created some of the living things present in the world -- you know, things like ticks, roaches, and viruses. Recently I found a pretty scary new icky thing called a entamoeba histolytica.

    It's an amoeba, and unlike most other amoeba that are around us and in us, entamoeba histolytics is very toxic. The entamoeba histolytica have very bad table manners. The microscopic "nibblers" lodge in the intestines to feed and and spit to their heart's content. Microbiologists have provided us with a stunning and beautiful picture of this toxic amoeba eating human blood cells.
  • How Can You Trust Christianity Is True When There Are So Many Unanswered Questions?

    As a Christian, I have many unanswered questions. The more I study the Christian worldview, the larger my list seems to grow. While essential truths are easier to identify from Scripture, there are many non-essential (and more ambiguous) features of Christianity. The unfathomable aspects of God’s nature typically leave us in awe and without adequate explanation. To make matters worse, the ancient claims and historical details described in the New Testament are sometimes too remote to verify accurately.

    As a result, I’m often left with questions in places where I would rather have clarity and evidential certainty. How can we trust Christianity is true when there are so many unanswered questions?
