Critical Cutlery

by admin

    Critical Cutlery By Wendy Wippel I think that out of all the figures in the Bible, Joshua would have to be the one that wore the most hats.  He was a warrior, a military leader, an administrator (truly a job of Biblical proportions), and one more: erstwhile surgeon. Joshua circumcised all the men before they […]

      A Today Without a Yesterday By Wendy Wippel The Greek philosopher Aristotle, who lived about 400 years before Christ, wrote a book entitled, Physics which popularized his theory that the universe was eternal.

        Delusions A’plenty By Wendy Wippel Christmas of 2015 marked a turning point in American Christianity, though not many of us probably noticed. Newsweek, which had formerly honored the holiday with a scholarly article about its origins or practice around the world, instead offered this as their holiday issue: “The Bible: So Misunderstood it’s a Sin”.

          Wrong Place, Wrong Time By Wendy Wippel It was 1851, and the sleepy town of Dorchester, Massachusetts, (now a suburb of Boston) were going about there usual business when something highly unusual happened.

          Firm Foundation

          by admin

            Firm Foundation By Wendy Wippel Genesis is admittedly one of the more challenging portions of Scripture to reconcile with modern, twenty-first century perceptions of our universe’s origins. Case in point, a Reverend Seeley has published two papers in the Westminster Theological Journal claiming that the Bible teaches that there is a solid dome above the […]

              Land Lies By Wendy Wippel An effusive but apparently intellectually confused internet commentator who calls himself (improbably) Yukon Jack has now weighed in with forecast (and more) for the nation of Israel. Ready? “Israel is doomed, the state has no right to exist and it’s identity politics are all based on false assumption, hyperbole, and […]

                Safe At Home By Wendy Wippel Early in our marriage my husband went to a conference in New York with our church’s men’s group and came home absolutely raving about everything he had learned. He gave me the materials to look at but, well, I never got around to it. He was a baby Christian […]

                  Tiny Tunnels By Wendy Wippel A quick check of the internet reveals that there are no less than 39 films that have featured wormholes in their respective plots. A wormhole being a theoretical passage through space-time that could create shortcuts for moving around the universe. Wormholes, apparently are predicted by the theory of general relativity, […]

                  About Time

                  by admin

                    About Time By Wendy Wippel A lot of what confuses people in the Bible stems from the failure of our human minds to grasp that what can seem contradictory from our earthbound perspective, really isn’t. Particularly involving time, which is relative on our end and meaningless on God’s. It’s also one of the biggest arguments […]

                    Pain with a Purpose

                    by admin

                      Pain with a Purpose By Wendy Wippel Here in the USA we seem to share a collective belief that bad things aren’t supposed to happen to good people. I call it the Disney Effect. But bad things do happen to everybody, eventually.  And it turns out that’s kind of a good thing. Maybe it’s a […]
