MOTHER LOAD From the very beginning The burden was clear Sometimes bearable Sometimes severe Ate from the apple Shared it with him Disobeyed the order Indulged the whim. What was the outcome? The fruit of the act? She ‘knew’ good and evil? She experienced it in fact? Did the earth creature join her? Did he crumble into dust? Did he die in an instant? Or just tumble into lust? To love and to cherish Becomes ‘desire and dominate’ Objectify the… Read more

INCOGNITO He came in incognito, A thinly veiled disguise The not so subtle son of man, A human with God’s eyes. The messianic secret, Left many unawares A God had walked upon the earth And shared our human cares. We did not see his glory, At least not at first glimpse, It took an Easter wake up call, Before it all made sense. The truth of Incarnation, Of dwelling within flesh, Shows goodness in creation, And Word of God made… Read more

If it’s inspiration you need in this dark political season in our country’s life, then you need to go see Gary Oldman’s tour de force performance as Churchill at the crucial moment in 1940 when Britain had to decide whether to go to war with Hitler, or sue for peace, and knuckle under to the Nazis. In other words, this movie is one that should have been released before Dunkirk, and actually you should see those two movies in that… Read more

“Holidays are hollow Unless they’re hallowed well, For holidays are holy days The time for truth to tell. There’s time to spare Time to waste Time to make amends Time to do most anything Even make new friends Holidays, a good time For writing poetry A silent, subtle indolence Inspires creativity.” BW3 Read more

THE BONDING A cold and listless season, And full of cheerless cheer, When hopes are raised and dashed again And joy dissolves in tears. The search for endless family The search for one true Friend Leaves questers tired, disconsolate With questions without end. Best find some potent pleasure quick Some superficial thrill Than search for everlasting love When none can fill that bill. So hide yourselves in shopping And eating ‘til you burst, Use endless entertainment As shelter from the… Read more

For the record, I’m left handed, which also means the right side of my brain is dominant, which may explain my abilities with music and languages. On the down side, right brain dominant left handed people are more prone to certain negative things, such as alcoholism. Left-handed people only make up 10% of the population but they make up a disproportionate amount of musical geniuses and other creative geniuses as well— for example, Mozart, Beethoven, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Einstein I… Read more

Here is a new title by my friends and colleagues Ken Collins and Jerry Walls. Look for a review of this on this blog sometime in January and February. Here is the Amazon description and link. This book offers a clearly written, informative, and fair critique of Roman Catholicism in defense of the catholic faith. Two leading evangelical thinkers in church history and philosophy summarize the major points of contention between Protestants and Catholics, honestly acknowledging real differences while conveying… Read more

Christmas season is upon us, which among other things recently, means so are the new Stars Wars movies. The signs that the movie theaters think that this is the most colossal blockbuster that ever busted a block (with a light sabre of course) is that they started showing the film, not only at 8 of their theaters in one building here in Lexington, but starting at nine in the morning. On a week day! While the kids are still in… Read more

Back at the dawn of time, by which I mean B.C. Before Computer, in the mid-70s I took apologetics at Gordon-Conwell Seminary in S. Hamilton Mass. The instructor was R.C. Sproul. It was an excellent course, as Sproul was known as an ‘evidentialist’ as opposed to a ‘presuppositionalist’ of the mold of C. Van Til. He was full of enthusiasm and good and challenging ideas. It prompted me to purchase a bunch of his Ligoner Valley Study Center cassettes, on… Read more
