The shooting in Orlando this past Saturday has sparked a lot of emotional reaction on Social Media.  It is tragic to see a radicalized Muslim going around murdering many people.  I believe that as Christians there is a role of grieving with those who grieve.

There is also a role that Christians must speak out against evil when one sees it.  Enter this Tweet from Planned Parenthood with this response to the Orlando Shooting.

Let me know if you see the irony:

An organization that murders the most helpless members of the human race, the unborn, has tweeted they “stand against violence…”

Are we to laugh or are we to cry?  Or both?

Chemistry Daniel Zuidema

Daniel R. Zuidema. Chemistry.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, May 31st, 2016. 48 pp.

This is a booklet on a Christian worldview of the academic discipline of Chemistry that is part of the Faithful Learning Series published by Presbyterian and Reformed that provides an introductory look at various academic discipline from the perspective of the Christian worldview.  This is the third book I’m reading in this series and I’m really enjoying this series.

In this particular book the author looks at the field of Chemistry theologically by utilizing the paradigm of Creation, Fall and Redemption.  Beginning with creation, the author argues that Chemistry is one way we mirror the glory of God, in coming to understand and utilizing God created chemical processes.  I appreciate how under the section of “Creation” the author argues that chemicals are not in of itself evil, but it is the use of it that can be used for evil.  He gives us examples of things that we might thing as bad can at times have functions that are not evil.  It is a good reminder that we must not be dualists who are against what is physical as Christians.  Since I do not have a degree in Chemistry I appreciated the author breaking down for us the various courses in Chemistry such as organic, physical, analytical, biological, etc.

Political Science by Cale Horne

Cale Horne. Political Science.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, May 31st, 2016. 48 pp.

This is a booklet that is part of the Faithful Learning Series published by Presbyterian and Reformed that provides an introductory look at various academic discipline from the perspective of the Christian worldview.  The first work I read from this series was on Literature and that booklet made me reevaluate my apathy towards works of fiction and it actually increased my interests in literature from an academic and Christian point of view (not long after that I picked up Great Gatsby).  So when I found out that there’s another booklet in the series that focused on what was my major in undergraduate, I knew I had to get it and read it right away.

The author Cale Horne is a political science professor who did a good job writing this booklet for a Christian general reading audience. I appreciate how in the beginning of the book Horne states that he believes there’s a role for Christians to be concerned with political affairs but he was wise to add that this is something Christians “can do” instead of “should do.” Horne recognizes that many Christians around the world and throughout much of Church history did not have the opportunity to be concerned with politics.  I appreciate the author’s spirit in writing this as I see this as humility in his approach toward the academic discipline of Political Science.

Just as a warning I’m kind of passionate about this one.

Do you remember not too long ago people in an Ivy League School cussing and yelling at a professor in protest of need for safe space after students analyzing for “Micro-Agressions” (seriously, “Micro”) found that dressing up in certain costumes of ethnic and people group committed some Leftist blasphemy codes?  The contradiction doesn’t occur to them.  I think some in the Left are truly today’s Pharisees, absorbed in self-righteousness, who in the name of social justice justify go over the top in harassing those whom they don’t think is as upright as themselves.

I worry about my generation’s hypocrisy when it comes to freedom of speech when it doesn’t conform to the Leftist’s narrative.

What’s worst then Leftists immature trolls?  Leftists trolls gathering together in real time and space.

Watch this video of an event with a Conservative Speaker in Cal State Los Angeles:

If you have been noticing since last year’s Supreme Court decision concerning gay marriage, the LGBT community has proceeded to go from bad to worst.  Certain quarters of that movement have been pushing their agenda to even more extremes.

Christian apologist and debater Dr. James White have recently returned from overseas teaching theology in South Africa and England.  While in South Africa Dr. White spoke on the topic of “Scripture and the LGBT agenda” at Cape Town, South Africa.  The message was given on May 7th, 2016 and can be seen on Youtube and found below:
