From our biological blueprint, to the fine-tuning of the universe, to the human experience of beauty, morality, and guilt, God is the best explanation for the way things are.

Quick Thought - Is It Possible to Decide Not to Sin?

When Adam surrendered his choice not to sin by sinning, there was a breaking in human nature that we have inherited.  Even though we can say “no” to particular sins, it is not possible for us not to sin. How can we say “no” to individual sins, but even with the help of the Holy Spirit, we still sin?

Quick Thought - Putting Them out of Their Misery?

Years ago, I debated a physician-assisted suicide initiative. I was against it for what they considered religious reasons. Therefore, they thought I was forcing my religious point of view on other people. I pointed out that their point of view was equally religious. Certainly suicide will end the physical misery here, but what happens afterwards?

Line in the Sand

  In Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, four children, poking about in the back of an old wardrobe in the attic, stumble on another world filled with peculiar delights and strange enchantments.  Did you ever tumble by accident into an ancient world?  Something like that happened to me recently.

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.”

God, Evolution, and Morality Part 2

Read part 1 here Can There Be Good without God? In 1982, I lived in Thailand for seven months supervising a feeding program in a Cambodian refugee camp named Sakaeo.  My charge: 18,250 Khmer refugees who had escaped the holocaust perpetrated on Kampuchea by the Khmer Rouge after the fall of Phnom Penh in 1975.

God, Evolution, and Morality Part 1

  The billboards read:  “No God?  No Problem.  Be Good for Goodness’ Sake,” and “Are You Good without God?  Millions Are.”  The point was clear:  Morality in no way depends on belief in God.  And why should it? Atheists can be good, too.  New atheist Christopher Hitchens regularly challenged his religious opponents to suggest a single act of goodness they could perform that he, the atheist, could not accomplish with equal success.

Unstringing the Violinist

  Judith Jarvis Thompson's Violinist Argument Isn't a Good Defense of Aboriton               I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard Judith Jarvis Thompson’s famous “Violinist” argument.  I was driving south on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles listening to a radio talk-show.  It shook me up so much I almost had to pull over.
