Critical Thinking and Christianity

One of my pet peeves is when Christians are characterized as blind fools who can’t think for themselves. Perhaps this is because I don’t like being insulted in this fashion, but honestly it bothers me more because it simply isn’t true. Not only do I know many incredibly smart and thoughtful believers, but as a […]

Jesus is a Threat

Some people are more honest than others in their rejection of Christianity. In his book Ends and Means, Aldous Huxley gives some insight into his atheism with shocking openness. He says, “I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning; and consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty […]

Jesus Is Alive, And That Ain’t No Joke!

This year Easter landed on April fools day, a rare occurrence that is set to happen again 11 years from now. For Christians, the coincidence is looked on with a bit of humour, spawning a few comical memes such as this one: For skeptics, it’s an opportunity to poke fun at the Christian faith, seeing […]

4 Kinds of Churches

Churches come in all shapes, styles, and sizes, and we should not judge churches based on such trivial matters as these. But that is not to say that all churches are equal.

The 12 Works of Jesus

When people talk about the core of Christianity, the phrase that is sometimes used to describe it is “the person and work of Jesus”. The person of Jesus refers to who he is (son of God, Messiah, Redeemer), while the work of Jesus refers to what he has done. Though more could be added, here are […]

What Would It Take to Worship Your Brother As God?

I grew up with three brothers – one older and two younger. If you have siblings, you can imagine what it was like for four boys (and two girls) to share a house together. There were times when things got pretty crazy! We didn’t always get along, but in the end we still love each other […]

Way to Go, Monty Williams!

If not, it’s a worthwhile few minutes of your time: The powerful message of hope […]
