Christians are sojourners and exiles in this life who only fight the most important fight: the war waged for the soul on the battlefield of the heart and mind. The Daily Fix is a running commentary on life, death, the world, the Church, and what the Bible says God thinks about it all.

A running commentary on life, death, the world, the Church, and what the Bible says God thinks about it all. A meme about religion being the cause of violence meets with the speckled history of “reason alone.” Included News: hWashington Post Story: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2015/11/16/in-light-of-the-paris-attacks-is-it-time-to-eradicate-religion/?postshare=1621447683068548&tid=ss_tw Article on Atheistic Regimes: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/publiccatholic/2013/03/atheist-governments-of-the-20th-century-the-death-toll-of-godless-goodness/ Questions about the Lutheran Ninja Clan and […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry… The post Daily Fix: The Irrational Guts of Reason appeared first on Worldview Everlasting.
Our modern way of thinking can very often get in the way of understanding Scripture. Particularly when we divide everything up and pick it apart as if each piece stands on its own. Our questions today deal with when this happens regarding the atonement, baptism, and the Lord’s Supper. Followed by a discourse on presuppositional […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry… The post Highly Illogical Presuppositions appeared first on Worldview Everlasting.

The rag on the rock, He who calls God His Father, is for me a protest and a contradiction of a nicy nice faith in God the Father. I read during the war about human beings in Hamburg who, during a bombing, melted down with the asphalt in the streets. Afterwards you could see a little child’s hand stick up out of the congealed mass. I wonder if it is not the horror of this sight that makes it impossible for me not to look . . . Read All

The author, John Gray, is himself an atheist, but he subjects what he calls today’s “evangelical atheists” to a withering critique. He especially criticizes the notion assumed by so many “new atheists” that if we just get rid [Read More…] . . . Read All

The “low voltage atheist” George Will defends public prayer, and in doing so offers an interesting definition of Deism, one that might apply to many people who consider themselves Christians.
