Was Adam an Ardipithecus?

Was Adam an Ardipithecus? I’ve mentioned several times in posts about Glenn R. Morton.  Morton was an ardent Young Earth Creationist, so ardent he switched professions from work as a geophysicist working for a seismic company and processing seismic data, and went into seismic interpretation where he would have to deal with more geologic data; […]

Wednesday with Michael Spencer: “That’s my trash can in the corner, and what you’re smelling is what I finally threw out.”

Wednesday with Michael Spencer That’s my trash can in the corner, and what you’re smelling is what I finally threw out. (2009) I believe what Christians believe. It’s what my life is founded on. My Christian faith is like a map. It tells me where I am, who I am, where I’ve been, where I’m […]

A Season for Lament

What a day. I grieved to hear an Ontario grocery store worker mourn her soulmate, only 49, who worked his last day at Superstore on March 16, just a week and a half ago! Now he’s dead. For stocking groceries. We owe our grocery store workers SO MUCH! I ache for the fear of the […]

From my series of posts a little over five years ago in my original “How I Became…” series, you might have thought that I embrace change quickly. After all, I have made a lot of theological changes in my life time. In fact, while I am willing to change my mind on things, it takes […]

Culture Wars Update: Why I Am Not a Culture Warrior

Note from CM: I wrote this post in 2009. I thought I would re-run it today in its original form and ask for input on how you see that things may or may not have changed. One sentence from the original post that I know is most certainly obsolete is found right in the beginning: […]

Another Look: My Ambiguous Apologetic

I confess. I have no apologetic. There is no defending God. There is no proving his way is right. To do so would require that I understand God, that I can substantiate the claims of truth my faith calls me to hold. I can explain what I believe well enough. I can demonstrate to a […]

BEYOND Traditional Marriage: A New Program

Another Look: BEYOND Traditional Here is another look at a proposed program for strengthening marriages that we suggested a few years ago. We don’t just promote traditional marriage, we recommend going BEYOND traditional marriage and taking up these tried and true practices that are fully Biblical™ and forever enshrined for us in the pages of […]

Monday with Michael Spencer: What’s in a Name?

Monday with Michael Spencer What’s in a Name? (2007) Here in Kentucky, most of the Baptist Churches of a certain age have a particular approach to their names. Most choose to go the geographic route, so we have Three Forks of the Elkhorn, Muddy Gap, First Baptist Every-town-you-can-think-of, a couple of thousand “creeks” of various […]
