Lazy Bible Critics (mp3)
The Bible has been under attack as long as it existed. The problem with Bible critics is that they don’t know when they’ve lost. In each generation they sing a different tune with the same old song.
Many questions about Bible manuscript credibility, science and Bible, or the credibility of “faith” are answered by Lee Strobel, Josh McDowell, or The Evolution Handbook. Many alleged “Bible contradictions” impose a modern-Western assumption of writing genre, quotes, documentation, and figures of speech, which are answered by a basic understanding of ancient literature.
More importantly, Bible critics don’t read the Bible all that much. · · · →
The Deceased Party of Cannibals (mp3)
Ted Nugent admits to chasing young girls 40 years ago. If he were a Democrat, he’d wear it as a badge of honor. But, as a Republican, it means Christians will cannibalize him.
“Throw the first stone,” Jesus said, “he who is without sin.” Christians, from the faith of forgiveness, from the religion of mercy, each knowing that he himself has been forgiven, pounce without waiting—not when they are reminded that every man is a sinner, but when they see the evidence after the devil digs up the dirt.
Politically speaking, cannibalism hasn’t worked for the failing Religious Republicrats. · · · →
Fighting the NSA gives the NSA reason to hold on to phone records even longer. China’s desire to dominate the peaceful Pacific may leave China with neither peace nor dominance. The Ukraine holds a revolution that angers Russia while Russia holds the Winter Olympics. Cuba shuts down visa services since no bank wants the headache of transferring money to country black-listed as a “terrorist-haven”. 65% of Taiwanese disfavor unification with China, while the controlling political party seeks the same thing the people don’t want.
At what point does someone state the obvious? We have front-row seats during the prelude to war. · · · →
Unavoided Consequences (mp3)
Not many decades ago, Democrats tried to force silly ideas on the silent majority in America. Irritated, the majority voted just enough to put Republicans in power. Now, Republicans are doing the same thing the Democrats did—going against the obvious will of the majority, only this time, that majority isn’t so silent.
Six years ago, the adult kids, fed up with unexplained rules, voted opposite their parents. Now, elections are teaching young and old about consequences. Back and forth politics have made the nation so dizzy that a third party is not only possible—it’s about to become unavoidable. · · · →
