Naturalism: Bumping into Reality

  Lately I’ve been enjoying my nine-year-old Annabeth’s theological common sense.  “Papa, why don’t atheists believe in God?” she asked. “Well, for a number of reasons,” I said.  “Partly because they can’t see Him, so they don’t believe in Him.” “Can they see atoms?” she offered. “Good point. But I think they’d say that doesn’t count since they can still detect atoms with scientific instruments, something they can’t do with God.  They won’t believe in anything they can’t measure scientifically.”

However, the Scripture is not clear about God's timelessness. Most of the verses seem to indicate God is in time: Rev 1:4; Rev 4:8, Ps 90, Jude 25, 2 Pet 3:8.

A Proverb a Day - Mentoring Letter February 2014

If I have only a short time to read, Proverbs is where I turn first. Every day that I do, I feel like my foundation is being shored up.  February 1, 2014 There’s nothing original about reading a chapter of Proverbs a day. Thirty-one days in a month (roughly); 31 chapters in the book. Easy. In fact, it’s so obvious, it’s easy to overlook. Don’t. Very little in my life has yielded such rewards with such little effort.
