For a long time in church history, the average Christian’s favorite gospel of the four gospels of the New Testament (NT) was the Gospel of John. In the early nineteenth century, it was even the favorite of Frederick Schleiermacher, “the father of liberal theology.” But by this time, literary criticism was being applied to the Bible as a result of Enlightenment. From 1880 to 1920, the quasi School of Religions, consisting of leading NT scholars in Germany, was alleging that… Read more

Bob Tway’s son, Kevin Tway, just won the Safeway Open at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, California, for his first win on the PGA Tour. He defeated Ryan Moore on the third extra hole of a sudden-death playoff with a birdie three on the 10th hole. Television announcers said the wind today had kicked up to 35 miles-per-hour at times. But it had completely died down late in the tournament. Three players were tied after the 72 holes of… Read more

Sweet-swinging Brandt Snedeker started the third round of the Safeway Open today with a three-shot lead. He birdied the last three holes to end the day in the premier wine country of Napa Valley at the North Course of the Silverado Resort and Spa with the same margin, this time over Kevin Tway. Snedeker is vying for his tenth PGA Tour win. The younger Tway–who looks like his dad, who won eight PGA Tour tournaments, one of them being the… Read more

Our Arizona, Republican, Senator Jeff Flake made a surprising announcement in October last year that he would not run again for his position as senator, which ends in January, 2019. He explained that in the current political environment in the Republican party, his chances of winning were poor. Indeed, even Arizona Republican voters, a very red state, were not that supportive of him. Plus, he had written and published a book last year entitled Conscience of a Conservative: A Rejection of… Read more

In the Senate hearing last week involving Judge Brett Kavanaugh as nominee to the Supreme Court, he said the word “beer” a lot of times. It’s because Dr. Christine Blasey Ford had accused him of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers at a house party drinking beer. Previous to the hearing, and afterwards, people who knew Kavanaugh back then have claimed that he was a heavy drinker of alcoholic beverages. Senators therefore questioned Kavanaugh about his beer drinking. Kavanaugh’s… Read more

That was a tough decision for our Arizona Senator Jeff Flake to make yesterday. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee in its hearing of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, swing voter Flake decided to vote yes to move the decision out of committee to the Senate floor on one condition–that a one-week FBI investigation of the matter be taken immediately. The problem with that is that President Donald… Read more

The USA used to have a lock on winning the Ryder Cup. However, it was a competition between the USA and the UK. Then, when I was on Tour, Jack Nicklaus suggest that they change to the competitor on the other side of the Atlantic to include all of Europe. It was a good idea, and it brought much more recognition to this event. But it didn’t take very long for Europe to start putting together quite a team, starting… Read more

Dr. Ford,  a professor and psychology researcher, accused Judge Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when she 15 years old and he 17, in which she thought he was going to rape her. The judge denied all of it. As an independent voter, that’s my assessment of the Senate Judiciary hearing yesterday: Dr. Ford was quite believable in her testimony, and Judge Kavanaugh was not. The Judge, being Republican, appeared quite politically partisan. He blamed the Clintons for getting “revenge” with this… Read more

Trinitarians typically claim that they rely upon the Bible for their theology. I posted two days ago, “What Makes Christianity Christian?” This post begins, “Christian pastor and author Kevin DeYoung, senior pastor at Christ Covenant Church (I don’t know where), says of the doctrine of the Trinity, “If any doctrine makes Christianity Christian, then surely it is the doctrine of the Trinity. The three great ecumenical creeds–the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed–are all structured around our… Read more

In one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour Championship just now at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia, by two strokes over Billy Horschel, who came from well back to shoot 65. A few years ago, Tiger Woods, with 14 major championships wins, was headed toward beating Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major wins. Then all kinds of trouble hit the Tiger, including injuries, surgeries, and other problems that so derailed his… Read more
