I Am The Image of God

I am the image of God.  At first, this may sound like a terribly arrogant claim to make.  God is Holy, Holy, Holy; set apart.  There is no one like Him.  With respect to His abundant mercy and grace, God declares “8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are […]

Grace to You – Colossians 1:1-2

Colossians 1:1-2 – Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae:  Grace to you and peace from God our Father. Colossians 2:1 seems to indicate that the apostle Paul wrote this letter to […]

Sawing Lessons: Kierkegaard’s Concluding Unscientific Postscript

Sawing Lessons “In the great forests of North Dakota, there lived a rough old sawyer named Dawkins.  In his early years, Dawkins dominated the region with his woodcutting abilities; able to produce as much sawn wood as any ten sawyers in the region combined.  As he grew older, he took […]

A Helpful Quick Resource on the New Testament Canon

Is there good evidence to believe that the Bible we have is the same Bible that the early Christians had?  Although we do not rely on the church, historical evidence, nor some vague notion of tradition to determine what the Bible is, evidences from such sources can be helpful for us.  I have benefited greatly […]

Bultmann Reads Mother Goose

I am currently reading Gordon Clark’s commentary on 1 John.  Occasionally, it brings up a particular interpretation of the well-known scholar Rudolph Bultmann. Among other things, Bultmann is known for his belief that the historical analysis of the New Testament is both futile and unnecessary, given that the earliest Christian literature […]
