I believe it is just a spiritual circumstance of being a Christian. So I have written this article to help me in the future … Continue reading The Religion of Non-Reason Reason : Atheism
It's now one o'clock in the morning here in the U.S and what am I doing? Drinking coffee, and writing. This is my outlet, my steam valve so to speak, the process by which I allow the excess pressure of life to be released. We all have one, mine is writing. The pressure is inevitable, … Continue reading And This Too Shall Pass…
This last conference, Summit III (December 10-13, 1986), drafted the Chicago Statement on Biblical Application. With this statement the proposed scholarly work of ICBI has been completed, for the doctrine of inerrancy has thus been defined, interpreted, and applied by many of the leading evangelical scholars of our day.
Summit I of the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy took place in Chicago on October 26-28, 1978 for the purpose of affirming afresh the doctrine of the inerrancy of Scripture, making clear the understanding of it and warning against its denial.
