Christians are often told that the Bible and its accompanying claims do not qualify as "real evidence." This brief article exposes the misconceptions behind this argument.

People are enamored with modern science for its ability to provide mechanistic explanations. The idea is that scientists do the responsible thing and actually uncover how, scientifically, things occur rather than invoking some supernatural explanation...

A Vimeo slideshow of a much older version of the first part of my booklet, How We Can Know Who Truly Knows. Much of the content of Part One has since changed, but this may be a helpful introduction to worldview.

What is the most reliable way to determine whether a particular action or behavior should be required, permitted, or forbidden—in any form of government (self, family civil)?...
