En intelligent tro?

Joel och Mark var två vänner med mycket olika livsåskådningar. Joel trodde att Gud är en allsmäktig Kung som skapat allt i världen. Mark var en hängiven ateist som hånade religion och trodde att hela världen, inklusive honom själv, kommit till utan orsak, av en biologisk slump. “Hur vet du att Gud existerar och Bibeln…

Borde protestanter och katoliker förenas?

31 okt 2017 handlar inte bara om Halloween. Detta speciella datum markerar 500-årsjubileumet av en händelse som förändrade historiens gång. “Pang! pang! pang!” lät det från hammaren när den Augustinska munken Martin Luther spikade upp sina berömda “95 teser om avlatens innebörd” på dörren till slottskyrkan i Wittenberg i Tyskland. Kort sagt beskrev och fördömde…

An Intelligent Faith?

  Joel and Mark were two friends with very different beliefs. Joel believed in God as the all–Sovereign King that created everything in the world. Mark was a devout atheist who scoffed at religion and thought the whole world – including himself – came about by accident, a biological mischance. “How do you know that…

Protestants join Together with the Pope

On Thursday 13/10 2016, Pope Francis met about one thousand pilgrims, mostly Lutherans, in the Vatican, preparing for the 500 years anniversary of the reformation. “What unites us is much more than what divides us!” Pope Francis said Thursday morning, followed by an applause.

What about the Psalms of cursing?

Psalm 137 is a very troubling passage written by someone right after Babylon forcibly relocated the Jews to Babylonian exile. Why would God have wanted to include such a violently distressing passage in the Bible? What implications does this have for us today when we face great trials at the hands of other people? How…

The Fall

Join me on a journey back to the fall – that first fall. Imagine how hard it must have been for Adam and Eve: “As they witnessed in drooping flower and falling leaf the first signs of decay, Adam and his companion mourned more deeply than men now mourn over their dead. The death of…

Genocide and a Loving God?

Genocide and a Loving God?

The core of the Bible is that God is love, that God loves humanity (1 Joh. 4:8, 16, John 3:16). But how does that fit with God’s command to Israel to not only conquer Amalek, but to utterly destroy this people, both men and women, children, infants and animals? (1 Sam. 15) We will touch…

Should Catholics and Protestants Unite?

October 31, 2017 isn’t just about Halloween. Ghosts, Dracula, and witches aside, this special date marks the 500-year anniversary of an event that altered the course of history. “Bang, bang, bang,” pounded the hammer of Augustinian monk Martin Luther as he nailed his famous “95 Theses on the Power of Indulgences” on the door of…

Newton’s Forgotten Discovery

Isaac Newton, known for making many groundbreaking discoveries in science, mathematics, and astronomy, is in fact, “considered by many to be the greatest and most influential scientist who ever lived.
