- For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
- [Reason tells me of the] extreme difficulty or rather impossibility of conceiving this immense and wonderful universe, including man with his capability of looking far backwards and far into futurity, as the result of blind chance or necessity. When thus reflecting I feel compelled to look to a First Cause having an intelligent mind in some degree analogous to that of man; and I deserve to be called a Theist.
- Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe–a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.
- I do not feel obliged to believe that same God who endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect had intended for us to forgo their use.
- Both religion and science require a belief in God. For believers, God is in the beginning, and for physicists He is at the end of all considerations… To the former He is the foundation, to the latter, the crown of the edifice of every generalized world view. There can never be any real opposition between religion and science; for the one is the complement of the other.
- This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.

One common complaint about Christianity is that Christians are often hypocritical. A recent Barna survey of Christians seems to support that assessment. This gives the impression that Christians more often than not don’t practice what they preach. This makes me … Continue reading
Have you ever found yourself at an impasse when facing an important decision in life? I certainly have and I’m fairly certain most of us have as well. The more important the issue is, the more we want to examine … Continue reading
