  • Wicked Good Apologetics and a Better Man

    Winding through a town north of north and mostly forgotten, I was reminded that New England is all that it's cracked up to be . . . including the roads: potholes and all. The scenic views, rustic streets, and refreshing chill in early May was a reboot of my youth and early married years in New England. But this wasn't just New England. I was in Bangor, Maine for the Why Jesus? 2016 Northern New Eng...   More

  • Summer Vacation

    I am not sure one would call today's writing a blog. Though I am also not sure of the requirements to be considered a blog. Either way, it started as an email, and then I thought, scary huh, why not post it to my blog site for maximum exposure? Great idea huh? I know at this point you may already be bored.

    How do we know God exists?  Over the years, when I have been asked this question, I used to just jump to an argument for God. Hence,  I would sit down and try to explain it in detail to the individual. I have now decided to take a different approach. I am convinced more than ever that the first question in the discussion is “How should we approach the existence of God?” or, ” What method should we use?” I find 90 % of the people I talk to have never taken t...   More

  • The Very Real Discrimination Against Christian Professors - Part I

    Since the movie God's Not Dead2 was released in April 2016, its critics have claimed that fictional court cases like the one against the make-believe teacher in the film just “blow campus discrimination against Christians out of proportion.”

    Through this two-part offering of interviews with real-life professors about their campus experiences, Ratio Christi adds to the existing evidence that this new intolerance exists in radical proportions today. This is p...   More
