The post-truth world: clearing up confusion

by Abdu Murray   “Science flies you to the moon. Religion flies you into buildings.” This cleverly biting remark is sometimes attributed to atheist philosopher Victor Stenger and sometimes to vocal atheist scientist, Richard Dawkins.  It’s an effective meme that perpetuates the culture’s current confusion that science is the opponent of faith and vice-versa.

Will God supply our needs or our wants?

by Frank King   I hear it referenced often, in conversations and in written devotions: God will take care of our needs. There’s certainly Scripture to back up that belief.

by Doug Koop   For five years I served on the board of a faith-based charity that works with some of the most marginalized people in our society, including prisoners, sex offenders and adults living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.

God has the puzzle box
