Sell all you have! - Monday, September 29th 2014 14:41
We have returned from our quick trip up to Michigan where we were a part of the memorial service for June’s mom. We drove up Friday and came back yesterday, Sunday. I...
Palm Reading -- A Different Version - Wednesday, September 24th 2014 23:21
Another multi-day entry, written last evening (Tuesday) and completed tonight (Wednesday); and it only comes under the "diary" heading. I need to mention that I have fully...
Childlike Faith - Sunday, September 21st 2014 21:02
Sorry to dwell on this topic, but that pneumonia shot has really walloped me. The arm is still swollen and hurting, though at least it is now at a point where I can put ice on...
The Pharisee and the Tax Collector - Saturday, September 20th 2014 23:03
Yesterday I got my annual flu and pneumonia shots, capping off a week that left a lot to be desired in various aspects. As a result, today I feel awful and my right arm is...
Back to Luke: The Unjust Judge - Sunday, September 14th 2014 22:36
I haven’t given a weather report in a while, so it’s about time for one. Here’s the overview: After a rather tepid summer last year, we had a bitter cold...
Docs Who Rock - Friday, September 12th 2014 18:27
Some not-very-well-connected musings written down last night, uploaded today (Friday). It's September 11 once again. It's been thirteen years already since the destruction of...
Emergency Money and Hyperinflation - Friday, September 5th 2014 21:37
I wrote last night (Thursday): It's gotten later than I thought, but I promised on Facebook that I would reveal in a post tonight what an anonymous encourager had sent to June...
The Grand Prix of Alexandria - Monday, September 1st 2014 0:37
Life is a lot like a go-kart race. “How so?” you ask. “I don't know,” I must respond. I just thought I should start this entry with something that...
The Twin Paradox - Saturday, August 23rd 2014 23:00
Started on Thursday, finished text on Thursday, added pictures and posted on Saturday. Wouldn’t you know it? I got an e-mail from Abu Bakr yesterday. Well, not the...
Locating ISIS (ISIL) on the map of Islam - Sunday, August 17th 2014 22:39
  Sorting Out ISIS (ISIL) So, it’s my birthday, and I’m looking at 65. How weird! Let me issue a preliminary "thank you" for all the wishes and congratulations...
Keeping Vigil in a Hospital Room - Wednesday, August 13th 2014 11:21
Monday, 8-11: I’m going to start a blog entry; we’ll see how far I actually get with it. June and I are in the greater Detroit area of Michigan, which immediately...
Venn Diagrams - Tuesday, August 5th 2014 0:00
June 26, 2016: I'm revising this post to a small extent and making a few corrections because I want it to continue to have a life of its own.  Just a couple of days left...
The Historic Christian Faith, Conclusion - Thursday, July 31st 2014 22:46
Greetings from southern Indiana! Actually, June and I had wanted to take a much further trip, but things happened, and so we decided that we were better off trying to get some...
The Historic Christian Faith, Part 5 - Thursday, July 24th 2014 22:30
I am aware of the fact that I'm repeating a lot of things that I've said within the collection of the previous series "How to do Theology." Hopefully I'm using sufficiently...
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...
