I focus on two broad themes: the truth about God and the pursuit of truth. To learn more about these themes, click on the links below and subscribe to keep up with the latest.

THE TRUTH ABOUT GOD

If God is real, He must be the most important and relevant reality in the universe. Therefore, the truth about God is worth pursuing. Based on the evidence I have examined so far, I believe that God is real, God is great, and God is good.

God is real.

Scripture and nature are the greatest treasure chests of evidence about God. The more we examine them, the more we can see that God exists.

God is great.

God alone transcends matter, energy, space, and time. Only such a being could be the causal power behind everything else. The ultimate sovereign, He is above all. He is all-powerful and all-knowing. He is wisdom itself. He is life itself. The only eternal being, God alone possesses immortality.

God is good.

God is goodness itself. His essence is love, kindness, and justice. He is trustworthy and faithful. God alone is good. If it’s good, it’s from God; if it’s from God, it’s good.

The evidence about God

If we are to discover the truth about God, we must earnestly examine the evidence about Him. The two greatest treasure chests of evidence about God are scripture and nature.

THE PURSUIT OF TRUTH

All truth matters, because it is reality. Whether we want to know the truth about God, the news, our health, or our relationships, certain skills and traits help us get closer to the truth.

Evidence-based belief

The best way to find truth is by following the evidence — facts, reason, and experience. Belief (by definition) does not stand on proof. However, sound belief stands on compelling evidence. Evidence-based beliefs are less likely to be shaken and more likely to be true.
