  1. "No Chance!" Really?

    "No Chance!" Really?
    Over the last decade or so, since I began studying philosophy, Apologetics and so on, I have had a growing disdain for arguments dealing chance and/or probabilities. Now, I do not mean quiet what you probably think I mean here. So what do I mean, and what kind of chance arguments am I really referring to? It seems these days, quiet frankly, that most Christian apologists spend a good chunk of their time and energy dealing with and arguing against various scientific, mathematical, and

    The Art of Distinction (A brief look into ideological laziness)
    Over the last few months I have been pondering and mulling over whether or not it is worth writing a certain book, and I have recently come to the assumption that, quite frankly not only is it worth it, but it is absolutely vital to do so, and soon. The book will revolve around the issue of making the proper distinctions at all levels of thought, speech, and communication. You see, so many of us, including myself at times, fail to fully think through and/or properly articulate our ideas. We

    The Bootstrap Defeater Argument Part 4 (defense of premise 3)
    Anything that always existed could not be part of or the same as that which began to exist. This will be both basic and simple, as it is nearly first nature to believe such a statement. After all, something that began to exist had a beginning which means that it is contingent, and something that has always existed is non-contingent. Contingent things and non-contingent things, logically speaking, cannot be the same due to the law of non-contradiction. Also, that which is contingent begins and
  4. Is Being Divorced a Sin?

    Is Being Divorced a Sin?
    Is being divorced a sin? NO! is the short answer.  Now for the longer answer.  I was recently told that I cannot be an effective minister until I "deal with my sin." What was the sin that this person was referring to? It was the fact that I have been divorced twice. This is the mentality of the church and has been for quite some time, but is it justifiable in Scripture? NO! You see, while the Bible does say that divorcing someone is a sin, it does not say that being divorced is a sin. In our

    The Bootstrap Defeater Argument Part 2 (premise 1 defense)
    If anything began to exist, something must have always existed. As one who is not a huge fan of long winded defenses of premises, I will seek to be brief, maybe even too brief for the likes of some of you. Nevertheless, my defense will be adequate and sufficient. OK, so obviously the entire argument, and the truth or falsity of this first premise, relies on the "IF" at the beginning of it. So the question then is, Did anything EVER begin to exist. Now, many would assume here that I must

    The Bootstrap Defeater Argument (an original)
    Over the next several posts on here I will be briefly defending each of the premises of this argument. For now suffice it to say that, well, here is the argument.    If anything began to exist, something must have always existed. That which has always existed necessarily precedes that which began to exist. Anything that always existed could not be part of or the same as that which began to exist. The universe began to exist. The universe is necessarily material in essence. Therefore, something
  7. To Shun or not to Shun? That is the question.

    To Shun or not to Shun? That is the question.
    In a day and time such as this in which religion is merely a part of life for many, and yet Christianity is no where on the scene in their minds nonetheless, it would seem as though we as believers in the Gospel and in the faithfulness and power or our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ should be weary of such people. But is this really the case? Is it really so that we should shun those who claim to be religious but yet do not embrace the Christian faith and message? Well, my answer, quite simply,
