  • GOD being GOD:

    GOD being GOD: Questions of Ontological Veracity Questions of Ontological reality In this article, we shall briefly, though importantly, address the notion of ‘God’ as the ground of being rather than as a determinate entity; in other words that the creation, though not purely the product of chance and necessity, was not the ‘design product’ […]

  • Creation Enslaved

    Did God really do that? Contrary to the view that, due to the disobedience of the pair (see Genesis 3) at a point in time, God brought about a dramatic change to the whole of creation so that the created order went from—a utopian paradise, in which there were no harms, to a hell on […]
