Index to All the Articles

  • No. 13 - Creeds: A creed is a confession of faith. It is the proclamation of a core set of beliefs that we are seeking to live by.
  • No. 12 - Theology: Did you know that, technically, theology is a science? Did you know that just like other scientists, theologians have divided Theology, or the study of God, into various categories and subcategories?
  • No. 11 - Doctrine: Have you ever heard anyone say, "We don't need doctrine, we just need Jesus."? Who is Jesus? And why do we need Him? Doctrine seeks to address these two questions.
  • No. 10 - Orthodoxy: Orthodoxy means "right thinking," or "correct teaching." It is imperative that we, God's people, continuously develop the art of thinking properly, thinking according to God's Word.
  • No. 9 - Revelation: Unlike all other false gods in the universe, only One God has chosen to reveal Himself to us.
  • No. 8 - Capital "T" Truth: Is there one truth for me and another truth for you? Is there such a thing as private truth and public truth? Or is Truth the same for everyone?
  • No. 7 - Worldview: We have seen the word ‘worldview” in books, newspapers, and magazines, and we hear it on the news and even from the pulpit. But what exactly does it mean?
  • No. 6 - Mindset: Continuing with the theme of clear-headed, Biblical thinking, I examine how easy it is to become locked into a certain way of thinking without even realizing it. We all have mindsets, some good and some not so good.
  • No. 5 - Matrix: Continuing with the theme of clear-headed, Biblical thinking, I introduce the idea of a Biblical Matrix. You may be surprised to discover what the word actually means.
  • No. 4 - Understanding: Proverbs tells us that understanding is highly valued to God. To thrive in our post-modern age, we need to be continuously cultivating the ability to discern what is true, what is right, and what is lasting.
  • No. 3 - Gates and Doors: With the issue of illegal immigration so much in the forefront of the news, I offer some thoughts about entering and leaving.
  • No. 2 - Chesterton's Shipwreck: Truth comes to us in a haphazard fashion. We listen to a teaching here, read a book there, and have an epiphany every now and then. GK Chesterton likens it to stumbling upon a shipwreck and trying to reassemble the story of what happened.
  • No. 1 - Just Thinking: Jesus commanded us to love God with all of our mind. But loving Him with our mind is something we 21st century American Christians are not doing very well.
