Is Christianity Good for the World?

Yesterday, I linked to one of the debates between Hitchens and Wilson, but I forgot to put a link to a book that they wrote together: Is Christianity Good for the World?


Christopher Hitchens and Douglas Wilson Debate

Recently, Westminster Theological Seminary held a debate between atheist Christopher Hitchens (God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything) and pastor Douglas Wilson (God Is: How Christianity Explains Everything) . You can view the debate here.


Roughing it up

Tonight, before Bible study began at our house, all the youth guys decided to tackle me since I was holding a ball. Of course, this turned into an all-out battle in which I was not going to let go of the ball. In the midst of this struggle, Alora began screaming, "Don't you hurt my dad!" After Amy assured her that I was okay, she seemed to settle down.

It's certainly been a while since I've been able to "rough it up" with a bunch of guys, so I had forgotten how much fun it could be. When my girls want to play with me, it usually involves dolls, hair, stuff animals and other girly games. Of course, I love doing those type of activities with my girls, but it was a nice change of pace to lay the smack down on some youth guys!

1978 Chevrolet Pickup

Earlier in the week my grandfather sold his 1978 Chevrolet Pickup for $2300. He's owned the truck for 30 years and it only has 100,000 miles on it. I've never owned car that has less than 100,000 miles! Currently, our van is around 155,000, while my car is about to hit 180,000! When he bought the truck in 1978 he paid $6000. I'd say that he got his money's worth.
