The E-Cat coming out of the Bag?

Monday 24th August 2015 by John - Science, History, Creation

With the help of his God-given creative imagination, Albert Einstein somehow discovered that all Matter (every atom and molecule) is actually composed of Energy. As a result, we can agree with Paul's statement that: 'Things which are seen were not made of things which do appear' (Hebrews 11:3). To test his statement, simply turn off the lights one night and you will realize that all objects (unless heated up or set on fire) are actually invisible in the absence of light. In fact, Paul also pointed…

A View from the Pew- 1: Living with Prophecy

Thursday 2nd July 2015 by John - The Bible, History

Several years ago I attended a talk given by our local Diocesan Director of Education.The ordained speaker explained how Islam is just 'another way up the mountain' and that if we would study the writings of various Biblical scholars we would realize that Jesus is not the only way to God, despite his claim to the contrary (John 14:6). I must admit that I was shocked to hear a supposedly Christian minister say these things. However, as the audience mingled after the talk, I was even more shocked…

Thinking about Thinking

Sunday 3rd May 2015 by John - History, The Bible

The first four sections of the Song of Songs are designed to get us thinking about our lives, our experiences, our talents and the need to find our purpose or direction in life – not some wild plan to become a billionaire, but a purpose appropriate to our talents that we can pursue with enthusiasm and determination, a role we can perform with excellence for the betterment of society. Most people, we are told, do not really 'think'. They simply become too busy with the daily routine and the…

A Time of Trouible

Thursday 12th February 2015 by John - Creation, Creeds and Comments, History, The Bible

When I go to my local church,  there  are always 'prayers  for the world' , apparently asking God to make it a better place. In the short term at least, I see no sign of those prayers being answered. In fact, as the media shows, things seem to be getting worrse. This fact should not surprise anybody who reads the words of Jesus in Matthew chapter 24, where He outlines a succession of events that will take place before His return as the Christ.  Notice, in particular, verse 21…

Size Matters

Monday 17th June 2013 by John - Creation, Evolution, History, Science, The Bible

Dna-splitAnybody paying heed to the mass media over the past decade could be forgiven for thinking that science has cracked the code of life and can now explain virtually everything in terms of genes and DNA – and that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution is now gospel truth and the book of Genesis should be consigned to the realms of myth superstition and fantasy. Nothing could be further from the truth. Certainly, using their God-given intellect, scientists have developed amazing research tools that…

The Epilogue of Evolution: Part 4 - Keeping Evolution Alive

Thursday 30th May 2013 by John - The Bible, Science, History, Gap Theory, Evolution, Creation

Over the centuries, there has been no authoritative interpreter of the scriptures. People have been free to read the Bible, assuming one was available to them, and reach their own conclusions. As a result, there have been many misconceptions, deceptions and even false or perverted gospels (Galatians 1:4).  At the time of Jesus, the Jews “searched”  the scriptures, which they erroneously assumed assured them of eternal life, as God's chosen people. However, they were wrong (John…

The Epilogue of Evolution: Part 2 - Lamarck's Theory

Thursday 30th May 2013 by John - Science, History, Evolution, Darwin

Jean-baptiste_lamarck2French biologist Jean Baptiste Lamarck (1744-1829) was described as having a “pre-eminent faculty of precise observation” and was the first person to employ the terms “vertebrate” and “invertebrate”. Like Darwin, he had studied for the priesthood in his youth but was turned away to atheistic evolution which he promoted strongly in a series of books – claiming that all living things had evolved from inanimate matter. Based on careful observations of nature,…

The Epilogue of Evolution: Part 1 - Natural Selection

Thursday 30th May 2013 by John - Science, History, Evolution, Darwin, Creation

Darwin statueEvolution is dead - like Darwin and the dodo. In this series of Epilogue to Evolution articles we identify and discuss the reasons why. Just a few generations ago, Communism was a growing force in the world, having taken root and thrived in Soviet Russia following the revolution of 1917. Based on the writings of Karl Marx, the creed was logical and convincing – “to every man according to his needs and from every man according to his ability”. It aimed to create a fairer world,…

Neanderthal enigma solved at last?

Wednesday 1st May 2013 by John - The Bible, Science, History, EvoGenesis

Neanderthal manYet again today Neanderthal man makes the news in the London press, as scientists claim to have finally unravelled his unique genome. Not surprisingly, Big N continues to be the dominant brand in the "cave man" market place, prompting many imitators. But just who was this reclusive chap and where did he come? He clearly had a great PR agency. In his "Evidence for Truth" trilogy, the late Victor Pearce, an eminent scientist and Christian theologian attempts to harmonize numerous findings of geology…
