Kim Davis Is Wrong

I believe in religious liberty. That's one of the things that makes the United States of America great. Another is that this nation is a democratic republic--the world's greatest experiment at democracy. Thus, every adult citizen--no matter race, economic status, religion, or whatever--has a right to vote in elections for political office and the institution of many of this country's laws. We also have three branches of government that wer established to ensure that no one sector becomes … [Read more...]

Emiliano Grillo Wins First PGA Tour Tournament

Well, 23-year old, Argentinian Emiliano Grillo defeated 32-year old, Korean-American Kevin Na on the second hole of a playoff today in the PGA Tour's FRYS.COM tournament on the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa, Napa, California. They played the par-five eighteenth hole (575 yards) twice. On the first playoff hole, Grillo surprisingly missed a putt of just under two feet that would have given him the win. I watched it today on televsion because I won there 47 years ago, in 1968. (Wow, am … [Read more...]

Winning at Napa on both Tours

The PGA Tour is beginning its 2016 season this week with the FRYS.COM tournament in Napa, California. It's being held at the Silverado Resort and Spa, one of my favorite places in the world. (But it's not like I've been all over the world.) They have two golf courses there, and this tournament is on the North Course. We also used to play a Senior Tour tournament there on the South Course. Napa Valley is such a lovely place, especially this time of year, with rows and rows of vineyards bordered … [Read more...]

“Peter’s Kingdom Keys Explain Subsequence”

The following is my first journal article. It was published a few days ago in the Journal of Pentecostal Theology. (See my 11/1/13 post about this subject entitled "Peter's Kingdom Keys Explain Spirit Baptism.") The thesis of this article is laid out in more detail in my new book, Solving the Samaritan Riddle: Peter's Kingdom Keys Explain Early Spirit Baptism. Published by Wipf and Stock Publishers on September 24, 2015, this book is now available at amazon.com, wipfandstockpublishers.com, and … [Read more...]

Was Jesus Married? No, But He Will Be.

In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the question of whether or not Jesus was married. A Gnostic fragment quotes Jesus as saying "my wife." And Dan Brown's international bestseller, The Da Vince Code, alleges that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and that the church purposely hid this information when it decided on what gospels should be in the New Testament. But Brown's book is so full of historical errors its ridiculous. He is either a sorry researcher or deceptive, and … [Read more...]

Jordan Spieth Is a Christian

In case you are a prepper who has been hanging out in the back country this year--maybe in some cave waiting for the apocalypse to happen so that you don't know what's been going on in the world as of late--the PGA Tour has a new superstar this year. He's 22-year old Jordan Spieth from Dallas, Texas, and he is refreshing. Whether or not he will take over Tiger Woods' previous domination of the world of professional golf remains to be seen. But so far this golfing phenom--who has such a blessed … [Read more...]

Is Trinitarianism Properly Defined as God Existing In or As Three Persons?

For the past 35 years, I have been a student of church and para-church doctrinal statements, also called creeds. These statements, which usually consist of numbered articles, almost always contain an early article about the traditional church doctrine of the Trinity. I have observed in these creeds that the most common method of defining the doctrine of the Trinity goes something like this: "The one God exists in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit." What churches mean to say by this … [Read more...]
