One More Bubble Burst…

by admin

    One More Bubble Burst… By Wendy Wippel Ever wonder why our physicists seem so anxious to find evidence of other life? Always searching the cosmos for other earth-like hospitable planets?  Ostensibly it’s because, with global  warming, we’re all looking at needing to make a move sometime soon. Really it’s because one planet with intelligent life […]

    Soul Trains

    by admin

      Soul Trains By Wendy Wippel A certain wit, when asked by an old acquaintance how his children were doing, answered like this: “We’ve had a bit of bad luck with our children. They’ve grown up. Which would be really funny if I wasn’t currently living through it”. I have two children, both daughters. Both of […]

      A Multiplicity of Errors

      by admin

        A Multiplicity of Errors By Wendy Wippel If you’ve been to a theater over the last ten years you’ve no doubt been introduced to the concept of multiple (parallel) universes, all the rage in science fiction since first proposed by Erwin Schrodinger while I was still in diapers. They’ve been all the rage in cosmologists […]

        by admin

          Apoceclipse Now By Wendy Wippel Eclipse mania in the U.S., for the first time in 99 years, most Americans are within striking distance of areas that will witness a total eclipse. What is not, unfortunately, rare is the simultaneous emergence of the doom and gloom prophets eager to proclaim that this eclipse, for sure, is […]

          One Hump or Two?

          by admin

            One Hump or Two? By Wendy Wippel It’s not really a new claim, but a new study (2014) resurrected an old discussion. The claim being that Abraham couldn’t have had camels because camels weren’t domesticated till thousands of years later.  That’s what is known as an anachronism in books and movies. Something out of place […]

            Peter and a Precious, Precious Prophecy

            by admin

              Peter and a Precious, Precious Prophecy By Wendy Wippel Peter seems to bumble his way through the gospels, always opening his mouth and inserting his foot. Or, as a friend of mine describes him, “ready, fire, aim”. Jesus knew his heart, though. So it shouldn’t surprise us that (when it really mattered), Peter nailed it. […]

              Hope and Change in the Time of Job

              by admin

                Hope and Change in the Time of Job By Wendy Wippel According to current experts, the Chalcolithic Age began 5500 years ago and lasted about 2000 years, Chalcolithic Age being defined by the presence of only crude artifacts made of either stone or copper. Since visible history dates from end of the flood, our earliest […]

                Firm Convictions

                by admin

                  Firm Convictions By Wendy Wippel Am I the only one who has wrestled with Genesis 6?  Particularly what the heck the “firmament” actually was?  Over the centuries there have been various translations. But I think our generation has a leg up on finally getting it right. Apparently early Christians conceived the firmament as a vast […]

                  The Great Divide

                  by admin

                    The Great Divide By Wendy Wippel I think it’s fairly safe to say that the issue that divides the church the most is issue of eternal security, otherwise known as “Can you lose your salvation?” It is an extremely important question for each of us individually. But it’s also an important question for The Church […]

                    The Original Soul Train

                    by admin

                      The Original Soul Train By Wendy Wippel All of us have sung (sometime in our lives, right?)—that great old hymn “It is Well with my Soul”.  “When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,when sorrows like sea billows roll; Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with […]

                      Nothing Comes from Nothing…Nothing Ever Could

                      by admin

                        Nothing Comes from Nothing…Nothing Ever Could By Wendy Wippel There is a principle in scientific thinking (Ockham’s razor) that was developed by a thirteenth century clergyman and scientist named Ockham. The principal, in laymen’ terms says, “don’t assert what you can’t prove. Today’s scientists, however (who apparently watched way too much Barney with their kids), […]

                        Donkeys and their Delusions

                        by admin

                          Donkeys and their Delusions By Wendy Wippel Is it just me, or has anyone else out there felt that this last election cycle has been like watching the very fabric of our country and its culture come apart out the seams? Driven largely by hysteria among the Democratic party and its adherents? Meaning mostly Hollywood […]
