"Logically, then, God’s goodness is just as necessary a concept as His existence.  And this is consistent with the way Scripture presents Him: as Creator, Judge, Shepherd, and ultimately as the One whom Jesus called Father.  What could be better than that?"
Is God good? What does it mean to claim that He is good? Can a case for a good God be made in a world so permeated by evil and suffering as ours seems to be? For many people who doubt God’s exis…

What role should a Christian play in politics in an ungodly society?
“Nothing was more alien to them than politics.” So wrote the early church father Tertullian regarding the Christians of his day. Some Christians probably did hold public office and serve in the Ro…

Don't make him do it - stop Drumpf now.
I still hope and fight for a better choice than Trump vs. Clinton. But what if it does come down to that? I will not vote for either. I know of no calculus by which I can be sure that the Faux-Righ…

Trying to cure a disease with symbolic gestures is a symptom of the disease.

Have you ever wondered why the Republican establishment was so incompetent? Drumpf's success provides a little insight into that question.
For years now, conservatives have watched the American political process and asked what the Republicans could be thinking. Commentators from Limbaugh to Beck to Hannity to Levine have wondered out…

When Republicans vote on Tuesday, they won't just be deciding who they want to be their nominee, they'll also be deciding whether they want the Clinton dynasty to continue.
Hillary Clinton is old. If she is able to secure her party’s nomination and win in November, she will be 70 years old when she takes office, the oldest any president has ever been when inaugu…

Trump wins "evangelicals," but Cruz wins evangelicals. The more often you go to church, the less likely you are to vote for Trump.

As an aside, this is rather a good argument for regular church attendance. If you are regularly being strengthened in your knowledge of God by sound teaching and fellowship with other believers, you are far less likely to fall for a fascist charlatan tickling your ears.
In a previous post, I explained what I believe to be the fundamental driving force behind the core supporters of Donald Trump. In another post I suggested a possible reason that some Christians may…

We're more likely to stop Drumpf if Rubio and Kasich lose their home states.
On Tuesday, Republicans will hold their first winner-take-all primaries of this election season. Republicans in Ohio and Florida will award their entire delegates—66 and 99 delegates, respectively—…

"When pundits look back at the race months from now, they’ll say that it was March 1st that Trump’s facade finally started to break."
The votes are in and counted, and the 11 Super Tuesday states on the Republican side have held their primaries or caucuses. Over on the Democratic side, the results are fairly clear: a firm, if unc…

"What a shame it would be if those who have opposed Obama, those who call themselves conservatives, even some who call themselves Christians–the people who should be leading the fight to make America good again–were now to embrace a faustian bargain with evil in exchange for the uncertain promises of personal affluence and security that Donald Trump is offering, along with his debauched character and rhetoric."
Donald Trump promises to “make America great again.” He doesn’t say just what he means by that or how he’ll do it, but it has become the slogan of his campaign. What does it mean to “make America g…

"While we have every reason to expect that all our leaders will far short of moral perfection, there is a significant difference between allowing for failure and repentance, and actively excusing, promoting, and even enabling a man who, until recently, didn’t even pretend to honor God or His law."
There was a time when, as an evangelical, I could reasonably count on my brothers and sisters to try to search out the greatest good when they entered the ballot box. We may have lamented the fact…

After Justice Scalia's passing, you may have heard the term "originalism" (or "originalist") mentioned. What is it, and why is it important?
The tragic and untimely death of Justice Antonin Scalia has had one good effect: It has brought the terms “Textualism” and “Originalism” before the public eye. Textualism …

Introduction
I am a scientist, a writer, and an occasional would-be philosopher, but I am a Christian before all else. I am working toward a doctorate in geoscience, with an emphasis on geophysics, with the eventual goal of teaching at the university level and furthering our understanding of the Earth's systems through research. For now, though, I study and pontificate on whatever happens to interest me.
