Tough Questions and Difficult Topics
I've started this section on tough questions and difficult topics. For the time being, I'm going to limit it to passages from the Bible and theological concepts, rather than "general" topics such as evolution, abortion, teh halia, etc.
Please e-mail me Biblical passages which you might consider either difficult to reconcile, or tough to understand or apply; and I will try to answer them (no guarantee that I'll succeed, though). Some examples are the following Corinthians passages (which, incidently, were given to me by someone who had difficulty understanding them). The best questions will be included into the website in due time.
In time to come, I will also start a discussion forum for people to post their views. However, this will be strictly moderated so that no one's time will be wasted on spurious or unedifying comments. In the meantime, keep the e-mails coming.

These two articles, on Omnipresence and the Will of God, arose from some trends which seem to be increasingly embraced by charismatic circles, and widely accepted by them without much thought or query. The writing of the articles was further prompted by some difficult questions posed to me as a result of the indirect consequences of those trends. A portion of the arguments contained in the two articles is from Millard Erickson's "Christian Theology", which I have found to best express in English terms the issues I have proposed therein. If you want a more detailed and thorough discourse on the subjects, you are advised to read that book. The two articles are not exactly short (you have been warned), but, especially for the second article, the length was required to present the case. However, if you would bear with me, I believe that at the end of it all, you will be able to come to a conclusion on the topics of Omnipresence, and the Will of God.
The next article is an attempt to explain the Will of God in everyday terms.
This one is an attempt to explain the Will of God for everyday life.
