“A Stunning Scale of Our Solar System, Drawn in the Dessert.” Then read Genesis 1 and Psalm 8. I’ve not seen the movie, “The Risen,” but here is a review that appears to be quite helpful. Samuel James posted “Some Thoughts on Christians, Movies, and Nudity.” And then some more thoughts.  These are helpful and […]

When I consider Your heavens

O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth, Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens! From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength Because of Your adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease. When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, […]

Who won the Ham/Nye origins debate?

After last night’s debate on origins between Ken Ham and Bill Nye, the tempting question to ask is, “Who won the debate?” I suspect that both evolutionists and creationists will claim victory by their representative in the debate. But for the believer in Christ the debate isn’t about winning and losing.  It was encouraging to […]

I heard the earth talk

“For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.  And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.” (Rom. 8:22-23; NASB) I heard […]

Creation reveals the wisdom of God

This morning Tim Challies posted this video to attempt to demonstrate the vastness of the universe: I obviously can’t agree with Sagan’s conclusions at the end of that clip.  Thomas Watson was right when he wrote in A Body of Divinity (something I read this morning), that the created world reveals the wisdom of God: […]

The work of God’s fingers

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? (Ps. 8:3-4) All this God created with His fingers (Ps. 8:3) — He cast these spheres and […]

A few things spotted on the web that have caught my interest of late: I’ve been thinking more about the relationship between social justice and evangelism lately.  Here is a brief video interview with John Piper on the topic. The Gospel Coalition has several brief articles on the same topic of social justice and evangelism […]

Russell Moore answers the question, “Is My Music Warping My Child?” Two points he makes, and one reaction of my own — Lyrics are influential — they shape the way we think about the issues of life, so liberty cannot be applied indiscriminately to music choices. Music becomes a parent’s opportunity to be intentional about […]

Another view of God’s creation

This morning Al Mohler overviewed new photographs that have been provided by the Hubble telescope. These photographs are astounding representations of the vastness of the created world. Every time I see something like this, I am reminded of the words of the psalmist: When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon […]
