Religion vs. Science

Secondly Magazine

It’s a common myth that Christians deny science.

I’ve heard countless atheists confidently separate truth into two different categories: religion and science. But is that a valid statement?

When atheists use the phrase “religion vs. science” they are implying that religion is incompatible with science, as if the two disagree. However, religion is not incompatible with science. Quite contrarily, what we’re really dealing with here is a paradigm conflict. There are two dominant worldviews people have when they observe the world around them.

The first is the atheist worldview. Atheists believe there is no God, and therefore make conclusions based on scientific evidence that support their preexisting beliefs. For example, when evolutionists noticed an overwhelming lack of transitional fossils, instead of objectively trying to reach a conclusion based on the evidence, they concocted an explanation that supported their atheistic beliefs. Although atheistic evolutionists claim that they believe in “science” and not…

Going to War

Alexis Ash

Hey, guys! Yes, I said I would be back weeks ago. Life happens and I just haven’t had a chance to write and upload. So here I am, writing this post and trying to get it up before midnight so it’s technically still uploaded on a Monday. Happy to be back! I’ve got a few topics that I want to write about in the coming weeks and I hope you enjoy!

I want to talk about how God fights for us. I just finished reading Deuteronomy yesterday and I’ve been meaning to write this for a while. Let’s look at Deuteronomy 20:1 and 3-4. We’re reminded again and again in Scripture that we don’t have to face this life alone. God fights for us, holds us up, and strengthens us.

1 When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours,

Grieve Not The Holy Spirit

My Counsel

TOPIC : Grieve not the Holy Spirit

TEXT: Ephesians 4:30

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God [do not offend or vex or sadden Him], by Whom you were sealed (marked, branded as God’s own, secured) for the day of redemption (of final deliverance through Christ from evil and the consequences of sin).

Holy Spirit as a person, that is, the third person in Godhead is very sensitive to all things that go on around him. The kind of lifestyle a person lives determines whether the Holy Spirit in such a life will be sorrowful or happy. I pray that the Holy Spirit shall be joyful over our lives in Jesus mighty name.

What grieve the Holy Spirit?

The summation of the things that make him angry is the gratification of the flesh. Galatians 5 :19-21, Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are…

A Busy Day for Jesus

The Life Project

Matthew 9:18-26

In this story, Jesus is interrupted in His conversation with John’s disciples about fasting when a synagogue leader comes and kneels before Him to ask that He bring the man’s dead daughter back to life; an unusual request to be sure. Jesus heads for the man’s house, His disciples in tow, when a woman who had suffered from chronic bleeding for many years touched His cloak. She believed that if she could just touch His cloak that she would be healed of her affliction. When she managed to do so, Jesus stopped, telling her that her faith has healed her, and Matthew reports that at that moment, she was healed. Off again Jesus goes… just another day of bringing the Kingdom to earth.

When Jesus reached the man’s house, many people had gathered inside; Jesus told them to go, for the child was merely asleep. They actually laughed…

The Victorious Life


1 Samuel 17:12-51

The Philistine army was ready to fight. Merely a boy, David traveled from his home to the battlefront in order to check on his brothers and supply them with food. There, on hearing the notorious Goliath threaten Israel, the young Israelite was outraged. Who was this giant to challenge the Lord’s army?

David sensed God’s direction and obeyed. A battle ensued between a giant and a boy, but the almighty God stood with David. Goliath, along with the entire Philistine army, was defeated.

This is truly an amazing story—we rarely hear of anything this miraculous in our world today. But we, like David, can live triumphantly, even in the midst of terrifying and seemingly impossible circumstances. First, we need to understand success from the Lord’s perspective: Goals should align with Scripture; then our Father directs us, and we follow with confidence.

Second, we—like David—ought to have a…

Inside the Cave

In this excerpt of my Christian Manuscript, Daniel Ezekiel and the other have begun their first time travel and they find themselves in the most surprising place. Be sure to leave any comments below and don't forget to vote for the title.


Daily Thankful

After having burned the proverbial candle at both ends for the past five weekends, I finally allowed myself to have a day of shameless, unadulterated rest. Allow me to explain:

For the past five weeks or so, I have been involved in a fairly intensive training programs on Saturdays and Sundays (eight hours per day, sixteen hours per weekend). I enjoyed the training and learned a lot, but that schedule – never mind the attendant research and homework assignments – will knock the wind out of anyone. I made an effort to keep my Fridays clear during this time, but inevitably the unplanned and unexpected crept in hour by hour (even though I was able to observe several “Sabbath hours,” as I call them, on Fridays).

This was my first normal weekend in over a month, and I am simply over the moon with delight. After all, I was able…

Amazing Grace… How Sweet the Sound!


22496900_1867853263228834_292579520_o“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” –John 1:17

Today friends I want to talk about Grace and God’s Law. For any of you that are Christians you know that being saved by Grace means that Jesus our loving savior died for us all as if He lived our life, John 3:16 says “For God so loved the worldthat he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” And you probably also know that God’s Law is the 611 commandments Moses gave plus the original 10 commandments.
Now before I met my husband who encouraged me to start going to church and to start actually reading my Bible I was what people call a “New Testament Christian” I claimed to believe in God’s word, but I also only believed that the…

The Christian Life in the Danger Zone


Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily besetus, and let us run with patiencetherace that is set before us, Looking untoJesus the author and finisher of our faith;                                                                                                (Hebrews 12:1-2)

It takes guts and courage to be a Christian.  The race that is set before us…following a life-script composed and managed by Jesus Christ the Creator of the universe, takes us to an innovative place…far outside of worldly conventional thinking.

Like the first-century dispute answered well by Jesus about the resurrection of the dead (Mk. 12:26-27)…in plain sight just below the surface within the discourse between God and Moses at the burning bush familiar to every Jew in that day (Ex. 3:6)…this simple truth about Christian guts and courage again is hiding right…
