The Truth About…Psychology (Part 2)

Let’s continue examining psychology and the behavior of people.  While all worldviews state that humans are basically good, the Bible teaches Fallen Dualism.  In other words, we are fallen, or sinful beings whose nature is not good but self-centered.  We are dualistic, meaning that we possess both body and soul. This is in contrast to [&hellip

The Truth About…Psychology (Part 1)

This month’s blogs will focus on Psychology.  But what do we mean “psychology”?  Literally, psychology means the study of the mind.  Yet this examination of the mind is not just concerning the physical organ of the brain, but concerning the behaviors and attitudes of people.  It seeks to answer the question, “Why do we behave [&hellip

The Truth About…Biology (Part 4)

Let’s conclude the series on biology.  Belief in evolution requires the acceptance of things that defy scientific law.  The ideas that matter could arrange itself, come alive, and express thought all violate observable laws using the scientific method.  What makes more sense is that there is something more to this world than just atoms and [&hellip

The Truth About…Biology (Part 3)

We continue to examine a Christian worldview of biology.  Earlier we had noted that two views regarding the origin of life exist–creation and evolution.  The biblical view is that God created life in a literal six-day creation.  But what if that view is wrong? If evolution is true, then matter arranged itself against the law [&hellip

The Truth About…Biology (Part 2)

Our review of the Christian worldview of biology continues. Christians believe that God created the universe with the literal account of our origins as found in Genesis 1. How do you know that’s true? There are several reasons to believe this. Colossians 1:16-17 says, “For in him (Jesus) all things were created: things in heaven [&hellip

The Truth About…Ethics (Part 4)

Let’s wrap up this month’s focus on ethics.  As Christians, we believe that God exists and He has declared what is right and wrong through the Bible.  These moral absolutes are for all people everywhere. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in [&hellip

The Truth About…Ethics (Part 3)

Let’s continue this series of blogs on ethics.  If the Christian worldview is wrong, and there are no absolute moral standards, then moral relativism must be true.  We each decide what is acceptable and what is not.  But if that’s the case, then there is no such thing as “wrong”, even in the case of [&hellip

The Truth About…Ethics (Part 2)

This month’s blogs focus on ethics.  The Bible teaches moral absolutes: there are certain things either right or wrong that God has declared.  These standards, or norms, of right and wrong, are grounded in God’s holy character.  He is holy, so he expects holy behavior out of His creation. How do you know that’s true?  [&hellip
