Being obsessed as we are with numerical precision in our Western culture, questions of the following kind arise from time to time: “Is Jesus 100% God, 100% man, 100% God and 100% man, or x% God, and (100-x)% man?” In this post, I analyze the question, and provide an answer in terms of orthodox Christology.

It is not unlikely, in the course of interacting with unbelievers, and attempting to take every thought captive to Christ (2 Cor. 10:3-5), that someone will raise this kind of objection. “I have my view, and it works for me, and you have your view, and it works for you.” At best, this sentiment is expressed to claim that rational discourse concerning our differing beliefs is pointless. At worst, it is expressed to claim that rational discourse concerning our differing beliefs is wrong. While such a sentiment is popular in today’s post-Christian milieu, upon further examination, it is found to be fraught with difficulties. Continue reading
When interacting with unbelievers in an apologetic fashion, it is not uncommon to encounter insults, especially when the unbeliever’s arguments have been refuted. This is to be expected, however, and the Christian worldview is not without a response. Continue reading

Earlier this year, Rhology and I reviewed Bart Ehrman’s book God’s Problem. In this paper, we review the book and provide a Biblical solution to the problem of suffering.
It is not uncommon, in interacting with Christians, for an atheist to claim that Christians and atheists are both atheists, differing only in the scope of their respective atheism. “We’re both atheists with respect to the Homeric gods,” we are told. This implies that Christians and atheists are really more alike than it might at first seem, except for one small detail – belief in one fewer deity. Perhaps it is even suggested that if the Christian were more consistent with his fundamental atheism, that he would become a full atheist as well! Unfortunately, for the atheist, this line of argumentation is untenable, as is demonstrated below. Continue reading
Someone recently wrote the following over at the Abolitionist Society of Oklahoma blog:
Question- what is exactly wrong with eugenics?
I understand that it’s wrong in the sense of basing it off of culture and race; but when it comes to diseases, it might be better to end their lives, so they won’t be subjected to a life of pain and confusion.
This type of sentiment may sound reasonable in today’s post-Christian milieu, but under further examination, it is found to be fraught with difficulties. Continue reading
Welcome to the new site! I hope this welcome post finds you well.
In starting off with a new site, I thought it fitting to say a few words about what I intend to do with it. In putting this site together, I have a few main purposes in mind, which I hope to fulfill to some measure in the coming years:
