The Science of God – Part 3

Posted On Apr 12 2016 by

I had never heard of an altar call before attending Promise Keepers. Nor had I ever had a man tell me, in a way that I could understand, that all my past behavior could be wiped out of God’s record book by simply believing in His Son, Jesus Christ. It all sounded too simple. But in that moment, I realized that it was this very simplicity that made Christianity such a perfect plan. It is this same simplicity that causes so many others to reject it. Other religions reject it because they believe that an all-powerful god must certainly have …


the science of God – part 2

Becoming a husband and father is a great motivator in getting a man to think. I wouldn’t have called myself an atheist before 1997, but any ideas I harbored of a god were along the “let’s just hope for the best” line of reasoning. If God existed, I’d surely done nothing to offend him. If he didn’t, well then, no loss there, either. Like I said, though, a wife and children make us reconsider our understanding of the universe. If I was wrong about the life hereafter and the prerequisites for entry into heaven, then I was risking more than …


The science of God – Introduction

Posted On Jan 28 2016 by

I am not a theologian. I am, by trade, an engineer. A man who loves science, especially physics. I’m also a writer. It is one of my passions, one I’ve held since childhood, yet let slip away. I’ve worked hard in recent years to learn the art of writing again. I’ve published four novels so far, as of this writing. And I’ve worked even harder, perhaps, to build a following. Writers need readers, you see. And in this age, it is difficult to gain readers among the ocean of new books entering the market on a seemingly daily basis. The …


Are the Nephilim Fallen Angels?

Posted On Jul 28 2014 by

As Gina and I begin our series, #AngelWars, we’re discovering some amazing things as we do our research. Now, most secular writers wouldn’t be concerned with being biblically accurate if they were to write a book using angels as their primary characters. But Gina and I hope to stay as close to the facts of the bible as possible. No easy task. Angels are the most numerous of heavenly creatures, yet the least understood. The bible refers to them usually as messengers, without giving us a great amount of detail about them. I’ll surely post many articles as we continue …


Fallen Angels…are they still here?

Photo Courtesy Flickr Creative Commons and gacabo We’ve always been a little obsessed by angels. And why not? Of all the characters in the bible, angels are the most common, yet the least understood. They are usually sent as God’s messengers. The angel Gabriel told Mary that she’d give birth to Jesus. The angel Michael gave Daniel some incredible information about the last days–information that appears to be quite accurate in these days in which we live. But because we have so little information about angels, we tend to re-create them to our liking. We give them wings. I suspect …


The Fault in our Stats

Posted On May 25 2014 by

Writerbud Cynthia Ruchti wrote a post on Novel Rocket this morning call Seeing Ripples. I’m willing to bet she whipped that up at the last minute last night because, by her own admission, she was called out to go fishing in the middle of writing. Sometimes those are the best posts. As was the case here. As writers, we’re told to build our platforms, gather a fan base. Stay active on facebook, twitter, ham radio, and wherever else a potential reader might hang out. I’ve been asked by agents how many followers I have. They want the stats. We’re a …
