What is consciousness?

Back in 1990, scientists determined that our universe started at a given point in a process they called The Big Bang. When those scientists made it to the top of that steep hill of knowledge and looked, they found creationists had been there all the time, sitting at the feet of God.

Do you have religious trauma syndrome?

Man-made, fear-based, religions have enslaved people for thousands of years. Anyone who is enslaved by any kind of man-made, fear-based, religion needs to escape. Escaping religious enslavement is always traumatic! Dr. Winell calls this “religious trauma syndrome.” She describes the symptoms and results of this enslavement very well. However, in my opinion, she misses the main cause of the enslavement (“The fear of religion is a dangerous trap“, “I fear that you will be corrupted“. and “More Jesus, Less Religion“); therefore, Continue reading

Are you a child of Abraham by promise?

Romans 4:13 It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith. 14 For if those who depend on the law are heirs, faith means nothing and the promise is worthless, 15 because the law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression. 16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Continue reading

The “Golden Rule of Interpretation”

“When the plain sense of Scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense; therefore, take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in the light of related passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths, indicate clearly otherwise.” p style=”text-align: right;” – Dr. David L. Cooper, founder of a href=”http://www.biblicalresearch.info” target=”_blank”The Biblical Research Society/a/p This has often been shortened to “When the plain sense of Scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense, Continue reading

Do new Big Bang findings support the Bible? Dr. William Lane Craig says new discoveries are proof the scriptures are true.
