Does Time Act Differently In God’s Presence?

Published on January 14, 2018 By sirrahc

“Christians want to be under rather than over Scripture, yet we do not want to be anti-science. So what do we do with this apparent antinomy* between the book of Scripture and the book of nature?”  — Jud Davis Believe it or not, I don’t always have a science/faith book in progress. But, prior to […]

Published on August 13, 2017 By sirrahc

The other day, someone shared an interesting post in a Facebook group that I belong to. It posed some questions from someone named “Dr. Sherlin”, who I am unfamiliar with, but no one in our group commented on it. Sort of surprising, since the subject matter was pretty much on topic for the group. Well, […]

Primer on Origins Views for Christians (Part 2 of 3)

Published on August 16, 2015 By sirrahc

“All truth is given by revelation, either general or special, and it must be received by reason.

In this final installment, ‘Jeff’ and I returned to Eden and the subject of Adam (along with Eve, this time). As I recall, he expressed his appreciation that I didn’t give any credence to the ability of purely naturalistic processes to “create” the first life or the diversity of life we see now and in […]
