Why Do I Write the Bible-Science Guy Blog?

(2 Minute Read)

Why do I spend many hours every week writing an article for the Bible-Science Guy Blog? Why have I written over 700 articles (see Contents and Articles)? Why not use that time for making money, for socializing, or for recreation?

Passion. That’s the reason. I have a passion to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 1:3).

In this light, here’s a relevant Christmas ornament from my son.

I think the most effective way to contend for the faith is to exalt the Creator and to debunk evolutionism, scientism, and naturalism. This is why I write articles tackling Biblical and scientific issues. I discuss scientific issues from a Biblical perspective and explore Biblical issues from a scientific perspective. Some articles are mostly Bible-oriented, some are mostly science-oriented, and some are a combination.

This is an apologetics blog in the sense that I strive to present substantive, logical, and compelling arguments for the truth of the Bible in accord with 1 Peter 3:15:
Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.

Here’s a Rebus puzzle about the task of writing a weekly blog article. Can you figure out the common phrase that this puzzle represents? Try to solve the puzzle before you look at the answer below.

With my blog I hope to contribute to this Biblical goal:
The equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.
(Ephesians 4:12-16)

Why is this mission of persuading men of the truth of the Bible important? The answer comes from Scripture:
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. Therefore, knowing the terror of the Lord, we persuade men.
(2 Corinthians 5:10-11)

For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

    • Thanks for your encouraging words, Gwen.
      Much of what I write is accessible to youngsters, especially if parents or grandparents help explain the more difficult concepts.
      Your grandchildren might especially enjoy the blog posts written by Kepler, my Jack Russell terrier. Here’s the most recent one: Kepler on Guard.
