Skeptics, in an attempt to discredit the Bible, ask a burning question. Who did Cain marry? If Adam and Eve were the first, and only, people on earth, who did their son, Cain, marry?

Does the Bible Say Philosophy is Wrong?
Is philosophy wrong and evil as I’ve been told in the past? One biblical passage, in the letter to the Colossae church, is given as proof text.

(Don’t) Ditch “Your Truth” For God – A Response to a Response
One Youtube vlogger I’ve stumbled upon discusses topics ranging from makeup to atheism. My interest level in makeup is equal to my interest level in China’s annual quantity of rice production.

Change your world by changing your community: Write a Letter to the Editor. I did, here is the response.
In preparation for Christmas, I wrote a letter to the editor to a local newspaper. I was desiring local discussion. I got it. While Christmas celebration has ceased for most of us, today (Saturday January 7th) is Christmas for Russian orthodox churches in 2017.

Christians Who Fear Christmas, Because It Has Pagan Origins, Is That Good Thinking?
“The most wonderful time of the year” is also the time of the year when we start hearing some denounce Christmas celebrations and Christmas paraphernalia.
