The Historic Christian Faith, Part 4 - Tuesday, July 22nd 2014 22:01
It is a truism that communication is a two-way process. Consequently interaction often requires a proper reaction. She: Does this dress make me look fat? He: No,...
The Historic Christian Faith, Part 3 - Sunday, July 20th 2014 22:48
These entries are clearly quite long. However, since my motivation to address this topic at all has been the intent to provide information in the hope that I might further the...
The Historic Christian Faith, Part 2 - Friday, July 18th 2014 21:32
If you read my last entry as a critique of Roman Catholic theology, you have missed the point. I provided an overview of Newman’s theory on the development of doctrine in...
The Historic Christian Faith, Part 1 - Wednesday, July 16th 2014 19:28
Recently, there has been some discussion on the meaning of the phrase, "the historic Christian faith," and, with some misgivings, I have decided to put forth a point of...
Bastille Day - Monday, July 14th 2014 16:10
Mark S. Phillips has been posting updates on Facebook concerning a book that he is reprinting and republishing. I'm excited about it as well. Just to clarify, since it's about...
Yezidi and the Rapture - Sunday, July 6th 2014 22:11
Bruno Corduan, my father, who is eighty-eight years old and lives in Germany, has just set out on a new phase of his life and ministry. Over the next few days, he's leaving the...
Don't run after them! - Monday, June 30th 2014 22:08
While it's still fresh on my mind. In the World Cup, Germany just beat Algeria 2:1. All three goals were scored in overtime after the regular time ended with a rather...
The Kingdom of God - Thursday, June 26th 2014 22:27
Time to get caught up. I didn't want to post an entry until the good folks at Bravenet had caught on to the issue of extra lines appearing all over my blog; they are now dealing...
Ten Lepers - Saturday, June 21st 2014 14:54
Actually, this is another entry that I wrote earlier, namely last night. When I thought it was done, it came out looking terrible, and I had to pull it. Unfortunately, by that...
Did Roger Olson have my argument in mind? - Thursday, June 19th 2014 17:05
A couple of days ago someone sent me an e-mail directing me to an internet post by Dr. Roger Olson that apparently alluded to my approach to the problem of evil. Obviously, I...
Faith and Obedience - Tuesday, June 17th 2014 16:24
[Once again, sorry about all the open spaces. Bravenet inserts extra lines after every piece of code, which I cannot get to with my code. What is really strange is that the gaps...
Just some more thoughts on the World Cup - Saturday, June 14th 2014 21:17
Watching World Cup soccer: Italy vs. England. At this moment, with just about ten minutes to go, Italy is leading 2:1. I should be going for England for the simple reason that...
World Cup Soccer, Forgiveness, and the Bee Gees - Friday, June 13th 2014 23:20
I apologize for the poor formatting of this entry. Bravenet has made some serious changes to their set-up, all for the good in the long run, I'm sure. But for the moment, it's...
Two Rivers and a White Path - Tuesday, June 10th 2014 22:39
Tonight's entry has to come from the department of "Chips from a German Workshop," if I may borrow Max Müller's gimmick once more. At the moment I'm deeply involved...
The Rich Man and Lazarus - Friday, June 6th 2014 19:41
Written Thursday evening. Okay, this is how tonight’s entry has come together. I was thinking of the passage treated below concerning "The Rich Man and Lazarus.” My mind...
Josephus and the Pharisees - Sunday, June 1st 2014 15:28
Whoops! The last two days caught me with a little bit of an unhappy surprise. I certainly hope that my colitis, which has been in remission for quite a while, is not making a...
Comments completed - Friday, May 30th 2014 11:59
This is just a note to let you know that I now finished last night's comments on the parable of the dishonest manager. I placed it into the entry where I left off. 
Commencement, Camus, and Corruption - Thursday, May 29th 2014 22:36
Another morning spending an hour-and-half in the dentist's chair; it really drained me today. We will be done eventually, but there still are some more appointments in the...
More on Euclid and the Prodigal Son with a Jewish Perspective - Monday, May 26th 2014 23:55
Non-Euclidean Geometry and the Prodigal SonLast time we grappled with the idea that Euclid’s fifth maxim, the “parallel postulate,” cannot be accepted as self-evidently...
Non-Euclidean Geometry - Sunday, May 25th 2014 21:42
(Started on Saturday.)  Another gorgeous day. I finished the little outside stairway except for a couple of planks that hopefull will make it look nicer. (Pictures only...
Counting the Cost - Friday, May 23rd 2014 22:31
What a great bunch of days we're having! The sun is shining; temperatures are in the seventies -- a good opportunity to have fun and work on outside projects. June is weeding;...
Pyramid Construction and the Iroquois - Tuesday, May 20th 2014 13:02
Yes, you can trust your eyes. Here it is—finally—a new blog entry. The last two weeks have been, let’s just say, different. June and I drove to Boston and back, and...
Excursus: John Wesley in America - Monday, May 5th 2014 15:20
There I was yesterday afternoon, writing a blog entry and making good progress. However, the first volume of John Wesley’s Journal,1 to which I had made brief reference in...
Dinner Invitations, part 2 - Saturday, May 3rd 2014 15:16
As predicted, it turned out to be a rather busy week by our standards. Tuesday's dentist appointment pretty much sapped my energy for the rest of the day. The appointment with...
Dinner Invitations, part 1 - Monday, April 28th 2014 20:38
I'm sure I'm not alone in this feeling, but it seems to me that time is just running through my fingers. I'm not being unproductive, but everything seems to need more time than...
