Thinking 12:2 Style* with the First Principles: The First Principle of Operation Science

The functional definition for science is that it is the search for knowledge of causes. Many atheists struggle with the thinking that science can prove everything (scientism). However when we look at the cosmos, and the the world around us, we see that all that exists has a cause. The atheist wants to posit evolution (macro, chemical, cosmic or stellar). All of these are based on observational science rooted in an atheistic philosophy. Despite this faulty thinking, there is another option. Continue reading

For those of you who have been to my blogger page, and then migrated postings over to Word Press, I had mentioned that I would be resurrecting posts from the other blog to here, Continue reading

Thinking about how we come to know what we know (epistemology[1]), and seeing the condition of the church in America operating more on a level of feelings and experiential ministry, I am reviving a post, or should I say refreshing a post from the other blog, that I have moved from.

Someone once quipped, that culture today “listens with its eyes and thinks with its feelings.” With the Millennial and Gen Z generations reinterpreting their self-identification in their identity, we see the church having its work cut out for her in reaching the culture.  Suffice it to say, we are living in a culture driven by emotive self-identifications.
