Creation, Space, & Time.

Tim Challies runs one of the few blogs that I visit on a regular basis. I almost always benefit from his writings and links. He recently did a post on the age of the earth and explained one of the main reasons that he is a young earth creationist. Since I am an old earth […]

Introduction Jer 29:4-9 says: Jer 29:4-9 “Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: [5] Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat their produce.

A (quick) Response to “7 Reasons Why We Should Not Accept Millions of Years” Here is my very quick view of things. First, I don’t think that the Bible teaches the age of the earth anywhere. It never sums the genealogies, nor does it teach about the age of the earth & universe. Nor is […]

Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner has been in the news a lot lately. There have been heated discussion lighting up the internet. Can we find a path forward? In a nation so divided, is there any way forward? I think there is, but like with so many things, it takes work. And many people don’t want to […]

Justin Taylor over at The Gospel Coalition posted some creation thoughts last week that cause quite the firestorm. I am late to the conversation, but I thought I’d add to it anyway.
