New Research Supports Claim that People Have Inherent Sense of God

If a child turns to her parents and asks why the sun shines, the knee-jerk response might be to tell her that it shines to give us light or to help the plants grow. Hidden in this response, however, is an assumption of purpose or design. It assumes that the sun was put there for … Continue reading New Research Supports Claim that People Have Inherent Sense of God

The Blacklist Binge

Flyover country! That is where I live, in a small town in middle America. Kearney, Nebraska is probably most famous for The Archway over Interstate 80, the best high school track and field team of all time (Go Bearcats!), and for being the official headquarters of both The Buckle and FreeThinking Ministries! Over the past few … Continue reading The Blacklist Binge

Charlottesville (Pt. 1): Of Blood and Soil

Not even a month ago America’s attention was seized by the violent and racially charged events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Why I Don’t Blog

Yes, you read that title right. A blog on why I don’t blog. Really, this isn’t me being self-contradictory. Rather, I mean why I don’t have a personal blog that I maintain. I’ve had more than one person tell me I should have one. The main question always rolling around in the back of my … Continue reading Why I Don’t Blog

With this in mind, it is clear that the way we choose to think is vital. Our thoughts can either set us free or enslave us. The Bible is clear that … Continue reading Ideas Have Consequences

Purposely Pursuing Perfection

I recently took up a new hobby. Yes, this might surprise you, but there is more to my life than sitting behind this laptop and churning out articles on theology and apologetics! Contrary to popular opinion, I have a somewhat balanced life! I enjoy doing CrossFit, wrestling around with my son (who is getting bigger … Continue reading Purposely Pursuing Perfection

Substance Dualism vs Socialism

I am amazed and frightened at the acceptance of, and even downright preference for Socialism among the young adults of today. Most young adults today possess little property due to the socialist bent of our current government and our administrative state, so it is not totally unexpected that they might embrace socialism as they have comparatively nothing to lose … Continue reading Substance Dualism vs Socialism

MoonDog Radio & Relationships

Guess what the number one reason is that people don’t listen to you or keep listening to you: they have a life! Yes, this might come as a surprise, but other people actually have other things to do and other places to be that do not necessarily concern you. You don’t take precedence on their priority … Continue reading MoonDog Radio & Relationships
