One definition of invisible is not perceptible by the eye.

One definition of transparent is open; frank; candid.

You’ll Probably Like this Catholic Church Election Video

A friend shared this with me, it’s a Catholic church election video that was produced and run on TV, as I understand, for the 2012 election.  I don’t agree with a lot of Catholic doctrine and I try not to get into politics much on this blog, but I liked this video and if it inspires Catholics to vote for the issues of life, marriage and religious freedom in this year’s election or any other, I think it’s a good thing.

There are issues that I think protestants and Catholics and can agree and unite on and I’d like to think this is one of them.

Whey I Went to See Noah and Why You Should Run From It

I’d like to say I went to see Noah the movie for the right reasons.

I wanted to be able to give an informed review for this blog. I wanted to be in a better position to witness to others who have seen the movie. I wanted to support an effort from Hollywood to focus on the Bible, even if I knew from what I read that the answer to the question, “is Noah the Movie Biblically Accurate” was probably a no.

To some degree these are reasons why I went. If I’m honest, though, I went for some wrong reasons as well.

Truth Matters – Part 4 – Truth is Not Relative

This is Part 4 in a series called Truth Matters.

In the last post, I talked about why truth is relevant to our lives, namely that knowing the truth was a requirement for being a disciple of Jesus and for being free in Christ.

I referenced John 8:31-32, where Jesus said “Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

This time, I’d like to continue with that thought, showing not only that truth is relevant to our lives, but that truth is not relative.

We all want freedom. The question is what kind of freedom do you want? The kind of freedom that comes from a life dedicated to knowing and being obedient to truth, namely God’s Word, is the kind of freedom with which the things of this world simply cannot compete. In fact, any other freedom is not freedom at all, but bondage.

Do you think there is much religious tolerance in America?

I’ll try to answer that question in this post, which is part 6 in a series of posts about the idea that truth matters. In the last post, I talked about how we probably have too many Christian denominations and we should not be divided over non-salvation differences in doctrine and traditions.

In this post, I’d like to discuss doctrinal differences that are worth arguing over.

I’d like to discuss the danger of the valuing of diversity of religious thought and religious tolerance above truth both in the context of all religions as well as within Christianity.

In our society at large, valuing religious tolerance above truth results in “Coexist” bumper stickers and movements like the Unitarian Universalist Church, ultimately arguing not simply that all religions should just get along with each other but that truth is relative and one religion and set of beliefs is as good as the next.
