God can't abide sin, he can't look on it. Yet in order for free will to be a possibility, sin has to be possible. How does a perfectly pure and righteous God create a world where evil exists? He became sin for us.

Light and Darkness

On rare occasions we encounter someone who has an inkling of what we're doing, harmonizing science with the Bible, and they ask an intelligent question about it. The intelligent question was this:

The Lamb of God

Why was the lamb slain at the foundation of the world? So that light could become darkness, good could become evil, the sinless could become sin, and we could have sentient life with free will.

Deductive Reasoning

It's not a good idea to pull Bible passages out of context because we've decided what we want them to mean and then proclaim that we have some new doctrine. That's inductive reasoning, or eisegesis.

Spiritual Separation

Separation is a scriptural doctrine which is generally thought of in terms of Christians holding themselves apart from the rest of the world and avoiding worldly distraction which can lead us into sin. There's more to it than that.

Gravitational Lensing

We observe the gravity of the sun causing light from stars to bend. It's called gravitational lensing. This shows that light has properties of both waves and particles, but everything is energy when it comes right down to it.
