The Christmas season is winding down (for me it really isn’t over til after the new year) and, in an effort to keep from completely ruining your Christmas joy, I’ve held onto this until after the holiday was over. I also wanted to see what everyone said during the week leading up to Christmas. I have been thinking more (wait! don’t go yet…) and there have been a few loose threads that I’ve been following. Oddly enough, when I began to think about the threads, they all seem to be interconnected. I’m going to go through them and would love to hear your thoughts on these different topics.

One of the things that I’ve been thinking about comes from the songs that I’ve heard played over the Christmas holiday season. Things that talk about goodwill, peace on earth, and kindness. One that I heard very often throughout the weeks leading up to Christmas was the song Do They Know It’s Christmas Time At All. In case you haven’t heard it (although there are a number of remakes on Youtube), here is the original:

Everyone has a cause or number of causes that they are passionate about. We seek out others of like mind to band together and make our voices heard. Depending on the cause, we may or may not agree with everything said and we weigh the causes based on this. Recently, Glenn Beck held a rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial that drew 300,000 – 400,000 people. The rally was labeled as a religious one and not a political one. Among those gathered were Muslims, Mormons, Evangelicals, Catholics, and other faiths. Throughout the day, the group was encouraged to turn to God and to rule themselves. This brings me to a question that I think that the church needs to consider very carefully. Continue Reading Ecumenism…

Design of the Week – Global Warming – Sketchy

I know that it’s been awhile since I promoted a design but this week’s was something quick and easy to do. The design is called Global Sketchy and is a text design that says, “Global Warming – we’re still a little sketchy on the science”. This design seems to be the epitome of what much of science has become. Science used to be about starting with a thought and looking to see if that thought had any merit in the natural world. Then the scientist would start looking at facts (real ones not made up ones) and evidence and then drawing a conclusion. If the thought was not supported by the evidence, the scientist would either lay the thought aside or toss it out completely. They wouldn’t continue wasting time trying to prove something that was ultimately unprovable. Instead, they would take the facts as they found them and move on to another thought to repeat the process.

Not so today. Today, many scientists are pushing thoughts and ideas that have no scientific support whatsoever in order to push their own agenda. They continue to change the facts, cook the numbers, and thickly veil everything they do in vague statements so that they can happily ignore what the evidence really says. Two major proofs of this are the evolutionary hypothesis and global warming. Continue Reading Design of the Week – Global Warming – Sketchy…

In modern times, it has become commonplace for people to say that all roads lead to heaven and that all religions are pretty much the same. Many say that it doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you believe something. If you believe something and you live by that belief, then you will find yourself in heaven. This means that a good Buddhist, a faithful Hindu, a pious Muslim, and even a staunch atheist will be accepted into heaven (according to 65% of “Christians”).

The question is, is this true? Continue Reading Blog – Arm Yourself – All religions lead to heaven…
