I have a fairly successful video on YouTube called Giant African Bullfrogs eating everything in sight. What started off as a fun project to watch my frogs grow and eat has grown completely out of hand. The views started off slow but after 6 months or so they came pouring in by the thousands. I’m...

What Pascal meant for good, God meant for great! Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a French mathematician, philosopher, and Christian apologist. Apparently he set out to write a book to defend and commend the Christian faith but died before it’s completion. The remnants of his apologetical thoughts were collected and arranged- though the proper order of... Continue Reading →
For those who like my posts but aren’t aware that I have another blog just for book reviews, here’s a sample.
If you’ve been paying attention at all lately then you’ve heard some buzz about Jordan Peterson. If you haven’t been paying attention lately then you need to hear what he has to say (half of the guy’s advice is “Pay attention!”).
I’ve been listening to Peterson’s clips and lectures on YouTube since late 2016 when a couple Canadian Christian apologist friends of mine invited me to like a FB page “Support for Jordan Peterson”.

A tiny little bird just made you look like a punk in front of everyone at the park. He nosedived in from a high perch... Continue Reading →
I recently had a short dialogue with Doug Douma, author of The Presbyterian Philosopher: The Authorized Biography of Gordon H. Clark, concerning Van Til’s Transcendental Argument for God. Doug is a “Clarkian” and I am a “Vantillian” yet we were able to have a friendly disagreement. If you know anything about the Clark/Van Til controversy,... Continue Reading →

In asserting this we are not thinking of psychological and temporal priority. We are thinking only of the question as to what is the final reference point in interpretation. The Protestant principle finds this... Continue Reading →
My nephew Lukas is one of the sweetest little boys you could ever meet. He cares for people way more than I do, and in that sense I have a lot to learn from him. There are so many stories I could share about this little dude but the one that comes right to my... Continue Reading →
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; knowledge of the Holy One is insight. In Christ is hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, so we honor Christ the Lord as holy in our hearts, always being prepared to give a reason for our hope in him. Yet... Continue Reading →
“It has been intimated that fallen man is both irrationalist and rationalist, and at the same time. His irrationalism rests upon his metaphysical assumption that reality is controlled by or is an expression of pure chance. His rationalism is based upon the assumption that reality is wholly determined by laws with which his thought is... Continue Reading →
