A Shameless Plug for Issues Etc.

If you want to know more about what the Lutheran Church believes, teaches and confesses, I urge you to check out Issues, Etc or Pirate Christian Radio on the web. Their various programs are fantastic in proclaiming the uniqueness of the Lutheran faith.

Why I Believe that Evolution is True! Not!

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been reading this book, "Why Evolution is True." In the chapter, 'Remnants; Vestiges, Embryos, and Bad Design,' the author states, "Women... give birth through the pelvis, a painful and inefficient process that, before modern medicine, killed appreciable numbers of mothers and babies. The problem is that we evolved a big brain, the infant's head became very large relative to the opening of the pelvis, which had to remain narrow to allow efficient.. walking. This compromise leads to the difficulties and enormous pain of human birth. If you designed a human female, wouldn't you have rerouted the female reproductive tract so it exited through the lower abdomen instead of the pelvis? Imagine how much easier it would be to give birth?"
This is his argument why evolution must be true because the design of the woman's reproductive system does make sense? Come-on! What lunacy! God's Word clearly answers his point in Genesis 3. There will be pain in childbearing. Sin has caused the problem not God. To criticize God's creation and creative design is dangerous, Mr. Coyne! Thankfully, our God is a merciful God.

Who are the Lutherans?

Who are the Lutherans? What do they believe, teach and confess? What makes them tick? What makes them unique? I am blessed to serve Christ's church in Strongsville, Ohio. Most people, in the area that I serve, have no idea what the Lutheran Church is all about. It is my intention by God's grace to get the Word out about the Lutheran church. Please join me in my attempt to spread the Word.
