Bill Nye Spotted in Dumpster Looking For His Next Scientific Thesis

Los Angeles, CA – According to a local news source, several witnesses claim to have spotted Bill Nye “The Science Guy” in a dumpster. When someone approached him to see if everything was OK, he told them he was just looking for his “next scientific thesis.” “When I saw him, I was instantly very concerned something had gone wrong. Was he hurt? Lost? I had no idea. I was relieved when he told me he was only doing scientific research.... Read more

‘I Love Jesus But Not the Church’ Just Means You Don’t Love Jesus

I find it puzzling that this topic is still up for debate, yet the sentiments of many Western Christians is that you can love Jesus without loving the church. Verbose arguments abound on the church not being confined to a building – that all spaces are sacred and therefore, filled with divine presence. The well-worn argument that the church does not consist of the physical space you occupy while worshipping God, but instead the body of believers, contains just enough... Read more

Study Finds There are More Christian Podcasts Than Actual Christians

A recent joint study conducted by Apple, Inc. and The Pew Research Group left researchers shocked to find that there are more Christian podcasts than actual Christians. The findings have left many stunned, and others feeling vindicated. “I knew it,” commented Julia, an avid Christian podcast listener. “I listen to more podcasts than anyone I know, and some of those that claim to be Christian are simply not. It seems literally anyone can grab a microphone and say something in the name of... Read more

This morning they announced plans to fire current CEO, Oscar Munoz, and hire former Cracker Barrel waitress, Brad’s wife.

God’s Will For Your Life Is That You Would Suffer

Like it or not, God’s will for your life is that you would suffer. In various capacities, one may sense relief, anger, frustration, concern, and a host of other emotions that one ought to wrestle with as they come to grips with the reality of death, sickness, pain, trials, and the onslaught of unjust actions in humanity. It is right and proper for Christians and non-Christians alike to deliberate over and develop convictions on these things. However, far too often... Read more

How Should We Raise Smart Kids? A Review of Gifted

In My Kid Could Paint That, a fascinating documentary about 4-year-old painting ‘prodigy’ Marla Olmstead, one of the talking head interviewees, Michael Kimmelman, asserts, “[We have] a very bizarre obsession with child prodigies. This fascination we have with the child who somehow exceeds all conceivable human expectations. If the kid seems to be performing on an adult level, then it’s like a magic trick.” Another talking head, Elizabeth Cohen, says, “There’s something charming about seeing a child masquerading as an...

The Christian’s Pursuit of Happiness

As humans, we spend the better part of our lives seeking happiness. We search for it in pretty much all that we do; we seek it in relationships, jobs, social media, Netflix, pets, games, sports, shopping and more. Notable theologian John Piper has even coined the phrase “Christian Hedonism,” explaining that even Christians are motivated to pursue their own happiness. It might not be an overstatement to say that humans are happiness junkies. While many of the temporary things listed above can... Read more

Must I Avoid the Appearance of Evil?

Recently, I had a church member send me this message, “I have run across arguments based on the verse about avoiding ‘even the appearance of evil,’ using this verse to basically say we shouldn’t engage in anything cultural. Since people do make certain assumptions based on our cultural involvement (i.e. that you MUST do drugs if you listen to rock music!) how should we respond to this argument?” That’s a great question and one that has potentially large implications. Because... Read more

Did New Testament Authors See Their Writings as Inspired?

There has been much work done on the New Testament’s view and use of the Old Testament, with good reason. Many of the historical claims of the Old Testament have been contested (e.g. a historical Adam, the Noahic flood, the Exodus) and so theologians have turned to the New Testament to show that Christ and His apostles viewed these Old Testament events as historical. In addition, many Christians are unsure about the relevance of the Old Testament for today, either... Read more
