Recently, I was having a conversation with a person when they said something that made me really think about how we view the unborn. I suspect that those who are pro-choice, pro-life and “undecideds” are all guilty of this act I am about to describe. First, let it be assumed that our language, that is, […]
For those of you who enjoy singing hymns in church, I find God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen to be an enjoyable hymn to sing and research. Here are some things I learned about the song. There should be a comma between the words “merry” and “gentlemen.” It is an unfortunate consequence of the pace of […]
Jake Plummer has openly attacked Christianity but in a veiled way by opposing Tim Tebow’s open Christian attitude. What is the Christian response to be?

Recently I read a to be expected attack against 180 movie. To be brief, the article basically said that Ray Comfort fixed the responses of the people in the 180 movie in order to meet his Pro-life agenda. The accusers even provided some forensic evidence by highlighting the reflection of what they proposed to be a cue card in one of the interviewee’s sunglasses.
So how should we view an accusation such as this? In short: biblically. “Biblically” is, in fact, the way we should view EVERY event in life.
Many people have still not seen the shocking documentary, “180”, yet. But over a million people have! What it is about this movie that makes it worth viewing?
Frankly, it makes you un’comfortable’. The quotes are a play on words, since the primary voice you hear in the interview is that of evangelist, Ray Comfort. Mostly known for the Way of the Master television show and evangelism training kits, Ray uses a unique and innovative style of analogy and interviews to change people’s minds on abortion.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend a gathering in Columbus where I was able to view some plans for the new ark being built in Kentucky. Answers In Genesis, the good folks who brought us the Creation Museum put on the presentation. It was inspiring in several ways. I was able to gain a deeper understanding of why they believe this ark will be ‘successful,’ and I got to meet the makers of the VBS my church uses every year from Answers In Genesis.
One part of the presentation concerned me. The speaker told us that the ark will be built by Amish. At least in Ohio, Amish are known for their work ethic and craftsmanship; but what concerned me was when they (the Amish) were categorically described as “faithful.” Faithful to what I wondered? My understanding from a former Amish man who became born-again and had to leave the Amish community is that Amish do not believe in justification by grace through faith alone. I approached the speaker and asked the questions. He assured me these Amish people were saved, and that the Amish were like any protestant denomination. It ended friendly, which was good, but I left feeling like there was more to say. Here is the letter I wrote him today via email:
As my good friend and brother Fred approaches his wedding day, I thought I’d publish this word of warning to him, or any man who is considering this endeavor.
