Happy New Year!!

Dear 2011,
So I will be honest, I thought your predecessor 2010 went by WAY to fast, do me a favor and lets try to slow things down a bit. Now I know some others are probably saying just the opposite but this conversation is between you and I, so you can deal with them later. I would like to see some changes in my life this year, I am trying to lose weight, I have done a good job so far but I am not able to get into my 195 fighting weight that I wrestled at in 8th grade, I would like to get back to that, (but without all the other 8th grade drama).  I also am going to be graduating this year (super excited about that) with that comes some plans of teaching more. As you know I have been teaching now for 2 1/2 years and I love it, but I really want to teach more in the field that is dear to my heart (not that CPR isn’t… there are many jokes to be made here). My heart is to teach on the subject of Philosophy, World Religions, and Apologetics.
I look forward to the fun that is going to happen this year and plan on having a very eventful 2011, this blog will follow me all the way so don’t forget this conversation, I will come back to it at the end of the year and see how we have done.

Until then,
Live Well, Bless Better

Review of Persuasions by Douglas Wilson

Douglas Wilson’s book, Persuasions is a collection of short parables involving the character Evangelist, who meets various people in a variety of situations all having one thing in common. They are all walking the one Road toward the Abyss. The Master of the City tried to give warning to the travelers, but many ignored them. One man known only as the Evangelist meets these travelers. With what seems to them as almost otherworldly ability he sees right to the heart of the individuals and can share with them the truth about their journey.   Some of the people whom Evangelist encounters seem significantly impacted by his insight and profound revelatory words, others offended, while yet others just ignore and keep walking on.   Persuasions deal with some very pertinent issues facing humanity today, Immorality, Feminism, Atheism, Marriage, Hypocrisy, Evolution, and other topics. Each issue discussed is done with articulation and a firm understanding in a manner that engages the reader to th

God's Just Destruction of the Canaanites

by  Eric Lyons, M.Min. Originally Published on Apologetics Press  Link to original Article here In the 1930s and 40s, the Nazi regime committed state-sponsored genocide of so-called “inferior races.” Of the approximately nine million Jews who lived in Europe at the beginning of the 1930s, some six million of them were exterminated. The Nazis murdered approximately one million Jewish children, two million Jewish women, and three million Jewish men. The Jews were starved, gassed, and experimented on like animals. In addition, Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime slaughtered another three million Poles, Soviets, gypsies, and people with disabilities (see “Holocaust,” 2011 for more information). Most sane people, including Christians and many atheists (e.g., Antony Flew, Wallace Matson), have interpreted the Nazis’ actions for what they were—cruel, callous, and nefarious.  Some 3,400 years before the Holocaust, the God of the Bible commanded the Israelites to “destroy all the inhabit

Is the Book of Mormon from God?

by  Dave Miller, Ph.D. How may a person distinguish between truth and error? Can a person  know  which religion is right? Must a person rely on  subjective  inner inclinations and feelings? Or is religious truth ascertainable and knowable based on  objective  assessment? Most religions (e.g., Buddhism and Hinduism) base their credibility on some mystical or transcendental experience. Even some “Christian” groups (e.g., Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, et al.) claim that their credibility and authenticity may be established on the basis of the Holy Spirit Whom, they say, gives them their assurance. But when the Bible is examined, no such role is assigned to the Holy Spirit. Mystical religions have always existed, and have insisted that they were the recipients of leading and guidance from superior forces that are “better felt than told.” The God of the Bible, on the other hand, always offered evidence— proof —of the divine origin of the message before He expect
