A Biblical Argument Against Religious Inclusivism

Published on May 7, 2017 By sirrahc

“Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.”  — John 20:30-31 (NASB) I’ve mentioned […]

Jesus Was NOT a Social Justice Warrior

Published on February 5, 2017 By sirrahc

“Jesus is the most famous Social Justice Warrior of all time.”  — misguided gamer on Tumblr I thought that title might get your attention. I also wouldn’t be surprised if some of you are already formulating your objections. I mean, isn’t it obvious that Jesus was a SJW, given all his attention to and instructions […]

Truth and Compassion: A Christian Response to Transgenderism

Published on October 9, 2016 By sirrahc

“The legal/cultural battle over whether biological males who have a female gender identity (or vice versa) can use the public bathroom, spa facility, or school showers reserved for the opposite sex is consuming the attention of the national media and the national conscience. Christians find themselves caught in an awkward situation, facing another obstacle they […]

7 Sine Qua Nons of Classic Christianity

Published on February 28, 2016 By sirrahc

I am really behind in my podcast listening. I just can’t keep up. In fact, I am more than a year behind on my Stand to Reason podcasts by Greg Koukl. Up until mid-2015, Koukl did a weekly 3-hour show, and I can typically only get in two hours on the weekend. So, I’m constantly […]

“Those who are unwilling or incapable of discerning or judging between good and evil are in this manner revealing either their disobedience or their immaturity.”   — Pastor E.L.

The Pro-Life Position: Exceptions (Part 2 of 2)

Published on February 21, 2012 By sirrahc

Let’s get right to it… In previous posts, I’ve explained how all evidence indicates that, when a human male and female conceive, the unborn zygote/blastocyst/embryo/fetus is not only a living, individual entity distinct from the woman — either biological mother or gestational surrogate — carrying it, but a fully human one, at that. (The same […]

The Pro-Life Position: Life on a SLED

Published on October 30, 2011 By sirrahc

“From the moment of conception, the unborn has a human nature. That he cannot yet speak, reason, or perform personal acts means only that he cannot yet function to the degree we can, not that he lacks the essential nature that makes those functions possible in the first place.”  — Scott Klusendorf, in The Case […]

The Pro-Life Position: Just One Question

Published on October 24, 2011 By sirrahc

“The abortion controversy is not a debate between those who are pro-choice and those who are anti-choice. It’s not about privacy. It’s not about trusting women to decide. It’s not about forcing one’s morality. It’s about one question that trumps all others.”  — Scott Klusendorf, Life Training Institute It has taken me awhile, but I […]

Bad Bongo!: Are Chimps Moral? (Part 3 of 3)

Published on April 13, 2010 By sirrahc
This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Bad Bongo

Last time (Part 1 & Part 2), Beckwith & Koukl demonstrated how the evolutionary approach to explaining morality actually denies it. Now, for an even bigger problem… Why Should I? This third observation uncovers the third and most serious objection to the idea that evolution is adequate to explain morality. One question can never be […]
