I know I love learning about the Bible, theology, apologetics and philosophy.  But the last few years I discover I love learning in many other academic sphere because of my beliefs of the Christian worldview, knowing that this is the world that God has created and allowed man to flourish with insights and understanding.

A great introduction to a Christian worldview of various academic sphere is The Faithful Learning series published by P&R Publishing (one of my favorite publishers).  They bring Christian scholars from their respective field and have them write about their discipline and they write it in a way that’s friendly to the general reader and yet also insightful of its relationship to the Christian faith!  One of the things I learned from reading Cornelius Van Til both directly and indirectly is the fact that this is God’s creation and a right interpretation of God’s creation involves His revelation of His Word and both are compatible and needed.

While looking up to find more of this series I discovered I actually finished the booklets in this series.  So here below are links to my review of the seven titles in this series.  I highly recommend them.

Does it benefit Christians to study human behavior in terms of groups?  Can Christians gain insight from it for both their spiritual and daily life?  The answer is yes!  One would think so if one read Scripture and see the interactions between groups of people.  This booklet is an introduction to the academic discipline of sociology that involves the study of human behavior in terms of prioritizing the dynamic of individuals within a group and interacting as a group with other groups.  I’m glad that the editors and publishers for the Faithful Learning Series had this booklet that survey sociology as an academic discipline from a Christian perspective.

When Education Lacks a Telos (Ecclesiastes 1:12-18)

What’s the point of education?

For many, the answer is purely materialistic: learn so you can have a good career; get a good career so you can make a lot of money; make a lot of money so you can buy and do a lot of “stuff.” Obviously, this perspective is fraught with danger. With self-indulgent consumerism as the ultimate pursuit, ethics are often just an obstacle to be overcome.

We must be careful that just because something is made into a “meme” doesn’t mean it is logically sound.  For instance here’s a meme on social media:

Of course this question is trying to make a case against Christian cake shop owners’ refusal to be involved with a wedding ceremony that they disagree with.

So here’s my quick serious answer to this “serious question:”

Business Insider has an article titled “Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey forced to apologize for eating Chick-fil-A during Pride Month.”  The reason why Twitter CEO apologized for eating Chic Fil A is because the company’s owner supports biblical Christian value concerning marriage and family.  These days Christians who believe in what the Bible has to say about marriage, sex and family are demonized as the equivalent of Klansmen and Nazis.

But we must not miss the totalitarian nature of what the Left and our culture is becoming.  What do I mean?
