Something that came to mind last night:  To an unbeliever, Science and God are polar opposites. "You believe in God, while I believe in Science," is a fairly common claim that they would make. What they are saying is that science and God are in conflict with one another so that one or the other may be true, but not both. That's a false choice that we need to dismiss out of hand. Science and Faith are not in conflict at all! What the unbeliever is really saying is that science is only valid if it helps support their presuppositions of no sovereign creator or law giver. It is indicitave of their ongoing quest to suppress the truth in their unrighteousness.So what's the Christian response? click the link to continue readingPresuppositional ScienceSomething…

Hrmph. I started a project using blogger because of the interconnectivity between it and Google+, since they are both Google products. It seems like my posts aren't carrying over here, even though the setting is pointing this way. I may have to take a longer look at WordPress, since that is the only real advantage of Blogspot. http://dougmchone.blogspot.com/CoffeeSwirlsThis was posted on Google+

Hard work is not the opposite of grace, it is the result of experiencing grace

Life
Hard work is not the opposite of grace, it is the result of experiencing gracePhilippians 2:12-13Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. I used to err on the side of this verse that my sanctification was God's job and not mine. After all, it was Him working in me, right? So if I was participating instead of being carried along it was works-righteousness, right?Wrong. In Christ, we are empowered to participate in our sanctification. And it is not for us to neglect that holy calling. You will not drift…

Discipleship Guide(lines)

Life
Matthew 28:18-20   And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” These are the last instructions given to us by Jesus before His ascension. Everything we learn in the Bible is important, but the Great Commission is the final instruction from Jesus of what we are to be doing while we wait for His imminent return. Let’s break it down: 1. We remember that all authority belongs to Jesus. All authority. No…

Life
I was at a local +Family CHRISTIAN bookstore today, a mine field of error with a few good selections mixed in, looking for a larger print Bible. Not seeing much of a selection in the ESV translation, I asked for help. The employee told me that there are several books of the Bible that the current bibles omit, and proceeded to tell me about the gnostic gospels that her live-in boyfriend prefers. I cautioned her, and asked her to read the last chapter in Revelation in regards to adding to the Bible after the closing of the canon and she looked at me like I was the out of touch nut job. I guess it's "buyer beware" when shopping for bibles. ESPECIALLY at the Family Christian bookstore. This was posted…
