Tuesday, May 19, 2015 11:05 PM What is Marriage to Evangelical Millennials? by Tom



I just read an article at http://www.dennyburk.com/what-is-marriage-to-evangelical-millennials-firstthingsmag/ that made me think whether or not the findings of the evangelical college professor concerning evangelical students and their views on marriage is actually widespread view among evangelical students.
I am starting to believe that it is, mainly because I have left a few Churches because of liberal views of Scripture being accepted.

Pilgrim

Like you I enjoyed Dallas Willard's article called Reflections of Dawkins. In fact it is worth reading again.
I must say however, this is the first time that I have noticed you featuring an author such as Dallas Willard who has heretical leanings. giggle

Friday, May 1, 2015 4:15 AM Reflections on Dawkins' "The Blind watchmaker" by Pilgrim

This month's Article of the Month is a bit different, but I am confident that most will truly enjoy and benefit from it. The author, Dallas Willard, takes the views of Stephen Dawkins to task which are expressed in his book, The Blind Watchmaker. The premise is held by Dawkins and others in the so-called 'scientific world' that the present existence of all things which they admit has a semblance of reproducible order is not an indication that the origins of all things requires an outside intelligent designer, aka: God. They hold that this incredible order of nature could have come about through natural phenomena alone. Put simply, evolution can adequately explain life as we know it, so they claim. Dr. Willard strongly disagrees and in his article refutes Dawkins claims and shows that they are in fact anything but conclusions based on actual science.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one and I hope you will as well. grin

You can read it now by clicking here: Reflections on Dawkins' The Blind Watchmaker.

In His service and grace,

Tuesday, April 28, 2015 10:17 PM Evangelicals and Homosexual Marriage by Tom

Homosexual Marriage
What I am about to say should not come as a surprise to anybody who has followed the homosexual marriage issue in Canada, the USA and many other nations.
It appears that the majority of evangelicals have already embraced the rights of homosexuals to be married; thus denying the biblical model of marriage between a man and woman.
What is more many evangelicals are saying things such as the following from a blog.
Quote:
As an evangelical Christian who happens to know evangelical Christians that happen to be Homosexual and Lesbian and Transgender I am mindful that what we consider “traditional” marriage is not particularly biblical, lots of variations on a theme there.
If the bible is clear about nothing else it is not our job to judge, and from fist hand experience Judge-Mental christians (purposeful small c) are the reason that way too many folks HATE christians.

I found an article called ‘Gay marriage will cause a winnowing of the evangelical ranks. It already is. I thought it demonstrated this issue quite well. http://www.dennyburk.com/gay-marriage-wi...dy-is/#comments
Having had to leave several Churches over the years over issues that I could no longer remain in good conscience, these things don’t really surprise me.
