Two Miracles

A Christian’s theology is minimally defined by two miraculous events.  The first miracle no one ever saw, because it could not be seen except by God alone. The second miracle only a few saw, but multitudes have experienced. These miracles happened within days of each other in the middle of the Jewish month of Nissan, in the spring of 33 A.D. It was the week of Jesus’ passion.   Best Christmas Verse You’ll Never Hear

Does God Whisper? Part 1

Does the Bible teach that Christians are to listen for God's voice to guide their decisions? The keynote speaker’s list of spiritual qualifications was not lengthy.  There were no references to his academic letters, theological acumen, skill at biblical living, or personal holiness.  Instead, he was simply introduced as “a man who hears from God.”  It was the ultimate sign of spiritual competency.  The implication for the audience was clear. He listens to God; they should listen to him.

Theistic Evolution: Drifting toward Darwin

  It seems like every time I turn around I hear of another prominent Christian thinker or theologian who has embraced Darwinism. It’s deeply disconcerting.  In light of the stature of these Evangelical leaders, some people are going to ask, “What do they know that I don’t know? I thought this was a done deal.  It’s either Darwin or God.”[1]

Is Mormonism Just Another Christian Denomination?

Not long ago I read a stunning (and scathing) response in a blog post by a Christian woman who was furious with those taking exception with the “Christian” convictions of a well-known Mormon media personality. “If only you would get on your knees and pray asking God to give you the wisdom and the discernment you need, you would see and know [this Mormon] is the real deal,” she wrote. “But instead you…ridicule him and the Mormon church…[rather than] doing your own research.”

Does God Whisper? Part 3

Read part 2 here Civil war battles were tumultuous affairs.  The thundering of guns and muskets was not just deafening, it was dangerous, drowning out the one means of group communication:  the bugles.

Ancient Words, Ever True?

  Has God Spoken?  Can the Bible Be God's Revelation? Whenever I hear the opening lines of Michael W. Smith’s song, “Ancient Words,” I am always moved:  “Holy words long preserved /for our walk in this world. / They resound with God's own heart. / Oh, let the ancient words impart.”

Does God Whisper? Part 2

In the last issue of Solid Ground, I raised a question that may have startled some readers. I asked if the current emphasis on “hearing” the voice of God is biblically sound. I say “startled” because for some people this is like asking, “Does Jesus love me?” or  “Is God good?” What could be more obvious, biblically?

Try before You Buy?

  Pre-marital sex isn't God's design for human sexuality.  And it's just not wise.             If you want a guaranteed nomination for oddball of the year, announce to your friends or co-workers that you think sex is only for marriage.  Most view such archaic notions as eccentric and even bizarre.  Virgins are made to feel like nerds.  If you haven’t “gotten lucky” by 18, it’s probably because you’re a social reject.

No "Lost" Books of the Bible

  Has archaeology unearthed ancient biblical texts that cast doubt on the current canon of Scripture?  Is it possible that Christians don’t have the true Bible?
