The Squared Circle: The Greatest Announcing Team Ever

In previous posts I have talked about some of my favorite wrestlers and matches, but this week I thought I would give kudos to the unsung heroes of professional wrestling: the announcers. Because pro wrestling is so story-driven, it is crucial to have announcers who can help viewers make sense of the narrative the wrestlers are creating. Of course, it is ultimately up to the guys in the ring to get the story over, but the announcers calling the action are absolutely essential in making sure the viewers know what to pick up on.

Philosophical Fridays: Science and Religion, Conflict - Concord - Complements?

It is very common for dogmatic Christians and dogmatic atheists to agree on one thing: science and religion are in complete disagreement with one another. But from a biblical point of view, this can hardly be the case. Passages such as Psalm 19 teach that God is the creator of the natural world as well as the ultimate author of Scripture. Since there is one God, all truth is God's truth, and there can be no conflict between the study of the natural world (science) and the study of the supernatural (religion).

Sermon: What God Has Joined Together (Matthew 19:1-11)

Someone asked me to do a lesson as a follow-up to the sermon on marriage last week on the subject of divorce. I am glad to do so, for several reasons:

First, Jesus taught on the subject, and as followers of Jesus, we need to know what He said about the matter.
