A “Sign” of the Times

So sorry rabbi… Recently a friend of mine gave me a short clip out of a local newspaper to read (see below) and asked my opinion about what it said.  My friend knows that I’m a Christian and where I stand on issues of faith, but I think he was trying to get me to...

Beware the Hebrew Roots Movement

Hebrew Roots is dangerous! In my recent radio interview with Chris Arnzen on the Iron Sharpens Iron Radio Show, I was asked a question about the Hebrew Roots movement.  Although I've heard about the movement and knew some basic information, I promised to post some...

Evolution: Science Fable, or fact?

This hilarious video on evolution illustrates the absurdity of the Theory of Evolution and the consequences that follow.  On evolution, you have no significant value or meaning.  

Think God started Evolution? Think again!

The idea of theistic evolution has come under fire recently and rightfully so.  Several scientists and theologians have worked together to address the idea in a new book called "Theistic Evolution".  In it, they explain that the storyline of scripture, and...

Gospel contradictions as a source of confidence?

Can multiple eyewitness accounts be the key to getting the truth? As you watch the video below, ask yourself these questions: If many people are eyewitnesses to an event, does that mean that their stories must be identical?  Do their stories have to match verbatim?...

This week we’ll go over Four Problems of Cosmology

 

We’re using the “Handbook of Apologetics” by Peter Kreeft and Ronald Tacelli to go over the arguments for the existence of God.  Today, we will be introducing the issue of God’s existence and it’s problems for cosmology.  Dr. Kreeft teaches logic in two major universities, so his arguments tend to be clear, concise and very helpful.  

All four of the problems of cosmology—creation and evolution, providence and freedom, miracles and angels—concern God’s relationship with the cosmos or nature or the universe. All of them can be addressed either at great length or in brief. We choose the latter way because we feel that all four issues have been made unnecessarily complex.

On the other hand, the problem of evil, the subject of chapter six, is the perennial Problem Number One facing the theist, and merits its own entire, rather long and complex, chapter. (But since it concerns what seems to be the badness of creation and the goodness of the Creator, we realize that the problem of evil, like the four problems treated in this chapter, is also a problem of cosmology: a problem about the relation between God and nature.)

We will be addressing each of these issues over the next several weeks.
