Children: Blight or hope?
I read an article calling for a new approach to childbearing. Couples should have only one child or none at all. The reasoning? Children, as carbon forms, have a negative impact on the environment. The idea is gaining popularity among environmentalists and philosophers.

Finding words on Earth for the other-worldly ideas
The book of Revelation is a difficult book to understand, but I wonder if we appreciate the difficulties John had in writing it. While worshipping, in exile, on the Island of Patmos, the Holy Spirit gave him a number of visions depicting heavenly things to come. Here in was John's...

Angels are not the cause of evil
Philo, a Jewish philosopher born in 20 B.C., wrestled with the question of who God was speaking to when He said, “Let us make man in our own image” (Genesis 1:26). Because the concept of the Trinity was yet unheard of, Philo believed God was talking to heavenly entities, such...
