The problem we have with the Bible is that we are taught to treat it as a rulebook or a manual with a whole bunch of directions on what constitutes a Christian. This idea has caused untold problems for believers. We are taught to defend the Bible against any interpretation that is not from our […]

This Amazing Book We Call the Bible

I was talking to a friend the other night about our perception of God in relationship with the conquering of the Promised Land under Joshua’s conquest. Some of the most difficult to understand concepts regarding the goodness of God stream out of the conquest. Why did God say to slay all the men, women, and […]

Why Are We So Afraid of Jesus?

by Ladd

4 “Hear the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel. 5 Thus says the Lord: What wrong did your ancestors find in me that they went far from me,

I first read Caesar’s Gallic Wars in an abbreviated version when I was fifteen or sixteen years old. My interest in the book was formulated when I read the Classic Comic Caesar’s Conquests in the late nineteen fifties.

A Significant Twist

by Ladd

It is the night of the Passover. Moses has made it clear to every family that tonight the final plague is to fall on Egypt. And in order to protect themselves from the Angel of Death who will soon sweep across the country they must kill a lamb, and place its blood on the doorposts […]

Science VS Religion – the Debate Goes On…

by Ladd

Ruth spent part of last evening on Facebook reading a discussion that a number of people were having over whether or not God existed. What amazed us the most was that people who prided themselves in being open minded and progressive in their thinking were the most closed minded about God. Their attacks on God […]
