The Holy Self-Interest of Jesus in the Garden

Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross. -Hebrews 12:1b-2a

Do you want to know how to trust God through hardship? Try looking to Jesus as your example. What did Jesus do? Why did He do it?

John Locke on Faith

First Comment!

Hooray for my first reader comment!

I want to encourage interaction at my blog, so I’ll reproduce the comment and my response:

 

A friend asked:

“What does ‘faith’ mean in this context? To come later?”

He wanted to know what I mean by faith. I wrote back:

“Here faith means trusting God. It means believing that God has spoken, and believing God’s promises. Faith comes at the conclusion of a reasoning process–not as the presupposition to it.”

Finding the Good in Christian Sorrow

How do we deal with sorrow and sin in the world—and in our own hearts?

The key is knowing what else is in our hearts: the laws of God.

Why Isn’t Induction Circular?

A friend asked a question about my theory of knowledge: “It seems that your epistemology is pretty circular—You know by reasoning. How do you know that you know by reasoning? Well, you reasoned that you do.”

The Problem

He was asking about what has been called “the problem of method.” If it is true that we gain knowledge by a certain method, then we also gain “knowledge of method” by that very same method; so how did we discover the method in the first place? If at first we did not know anything about the method, then how, without such knowledge, were we able to gain it?

How do we know that, “To know is to reason about observations”? Is the method of induction circular?

The Vision — If We Will Live

“Where there is no vision the people perish”
-Proverbs 29:18

This blog is about looking to Scripture to find out who God is, why we worship him, and how we flourish. It’s about what we must do, if we will live.
