• Lookalikes

    While finite minds make sense in a universe created by a Divine Mind, they are exceedingly difficult to account for in a naturalistic universe. Physicalist approaches to explaining mental properties ultimately fall short because mental properties possess unique characteristics that cannot be reduced to physical states, events and properties.

  • Purposeful

    Purposeful It is only from the perspective of our ‘mental life’ (the ‘imago Dei’ factor) that we can imagine how God’s ‘being’ might be, and how God might act in the world that God has created and that the Triune God sustains.

  • Building: The Church?

    The Churches’ Own Pandemic ‘Shut everything down’, they said; ‘but please allow the bread’, was the muted reply. ‘The bread you shall have, there’s a surplus of supply, so no one should go without, by and by.

Call it the ‘ravages of time’ or ‘wear and tear’ or just ‘life. That’s it: We are born—grow into maturity if we’re lucky and ‘naturally’ […]

  • What kind of World?

    When thinking about the feasibility of life in/on a ‘New Heaven & Earth’ it is necessary to consider, a little, the purpose of what we may call, the original model. It isn’t so much a question of the time taken to get where ‘we’ are today. According to the latest scientific data, thoughthe answer to […]

    Heaven is a wonderful place, isn’t it?

    Reading the words of St John’s Gospel at the head of the funeral cortege is a most surreal of experiences: “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,…” (John 11:25,26) This particular occasion was the funeral of someone with whom we were well acquainted—someone that […]
