The purpose of this blog is to build the faith of believers and stimulate the spiritual sensitivities of the seekers. It will endeavor to demonstrate that the record of earth and human history found in the pages of Scripture is absolutely compatible with the natural evidence and is, by far, the most intellectually satisfying of the proposed cosmogonies. By amplifying the historical and scientific harmony, it is the hope of this author to remove the shackles that naturalism has placed on the soul of mankind, and validate the eternal, life-enriching truths left by the Creator in His preserved restoration guide to humanity…the Holy Scriptures.
