Making Sense of the Texas Church Massacre: What You Believe Matters-Part 2

In my previous post, I attempted to show that what you believe matters, and that when it comes to making sense of the Texas Church Massacre, atheism fails to supply adequate resources when responding to the problem of evil.

Making Sense of the Texas Church Massacre: What You Believe Matters-Part 1

The atheist philosopher, Bertrand Russell, once made this comment: “No one can sit at the bedside of a dying child and still believe in God.”  Certainly, from the outset, this statement sounds really powerful.  How could I, a Bible-believing Christian, who claims to believe in a God that is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving, reconcile His Read more about Making Sense of the Texas Church Massacre: What You Believe Matters-Part 1[…]

Adoniram Judson’s Modern, Americanized Letter to his Future Father-In-Law (Or “If Judson were writing today”)

For some historical context, see the blog post I previously wrote about Adoniram Judson’s astonishing engagement letter to his father-in-law for his daughter Ann here.

Adoniram Judson’s astonishing letter to his father-in-law asking for his daughter’s hand in marriage

We named our son, Judson, after the missionary Adoniram Judson, and I am proud of that fact given what I am currently learning about Judson’s life.

His commitment to the cause of Christ was (is!) phenomenal, humbling, and inspiring.  Before he Read more about Adoniram Judson’s astonishing letter to his father-in-law asking for his daughter’s hand in marriage[…]
