Do I Really Have to Read My Bible Everyday?

By on Dec 14, 2017

  Do you have to breathe every day?   Haha, snarky comments aside, it is extremely important for us Christians to be meditating on Scripture as much as we possibly can. And yes, if you profess to believe in Jesus Christ, that includes you.   I’ve been in church a long time. Not just as a Sunday attendee, but as someone who loved going to church even when there was no service. Yet, even I hardly ever opened my Bible outside of church services. I thought that being in the church building was enough to cover that lacking part of my Christian life. In reality, I didn’t really...

All of Creation – The Greater and Lesser Lights

By on Dec 12, 2017

    14And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16And God made the two great lights–the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night–and the stars. 17And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18to rule over the day and over the nights, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw...

All of Creation – The Heavens and The Earth

By on Dec 2, 2017

  “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” -Genesis 1:1 So for our first little segment on Creation, I’d like to take a look at the beginning of it all: The Heavens and the Earth. More specifically, space: The Final Frontier. The story begins: A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away. Just kidding. Well it was a long time ago, but perhaps not in a galaxy far far away. Basically, the story begins with God. Nothing else. Literally, nothing else.   But you might be asking, “How does that even work? If there was nothing, how was there God?” I don’t know. I...

A Greater Purpose

By on Feb 22, 2017

Last week, I released an article that discussed the ramifications of human and animal embryo splicing; in other words, the creation of human-animal hybrids. You can read that here. On February 14, 2017, the National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Medicine released a report on the ethics of human embryo genetic engineering. The conclusion: embryonic gene editing is permissible under certain situations and guidelines[1]. What was once deemed unethical and beyond belief is now endorsed by one of the most influential scientific communities in the world. It only seemed logical to...

The Chimera Conundrum

By on Feb 17, 2017

On January 26, 2017, researchers at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California created the first successful human-animal hybrid[1]. This is known as a chimera, or an organism composed of genetically different species. Salk researchers inserted human stem cells into the embryos of pigs, which were implanted into the wombs of pigs. And for the first time, human cells were found in the embryos. From the lens of science and medicine, this is a huge milestone. Because of the current crisis of a lack of donors, this breakthrough could pave the way to create human organs to be used by the sick and...

Apologetics Restored my Faith

By on Nov 3, 2016

If someone were to ask me, “When did you become a Christian?” I would respond, “I’ve been a Christian my entire life.” I was born into a Christian family, grew up in church, and never really left to explore anything else. I’ve always believed in Christ because Christ is all that I’ve ever known. But I was what you would call a “nominal Christian.” I would go to church weekly, attend every Bible study, and even serve in many capacities. But looking back, those were empty times. I knew the stories of the Bible, the head knowledge of who God was. I had the typical Christian education: God...
