Thinking Critically About Euthanasia

/
Currently, society accepts that people who are sick, elderly, or disabled, need to be cared for until their natural death. Unfortunately, where assisted dying has become a choice, staying alive to be cared for becomes optional, not the default.

Seven Questions that Define Your World, Part 3: Deism

/
Do you believe that God’s nature is discoverable through the study of nature? And, that God cannot be known through divine revelation and/or special acts in history? Well then, you may be a deist! But how does Deism differ from Christianity? This article will walk you through a Deist’s position on important questions such as ‘what does it mean to be human’ and ‘what happens to a person at death’.

Is Scientism Fundamentally Flawed? Part 1

/
Have you come across the word scientism before? If you have, or even if you have not, you will have been exposed to strong views and opinions that have scientism at their core. Perhaps you have encountered statements such as “the only truth we can know is discovered through science” or, “science has proven God doesn’t exist”? These have scientism at their heart. Despite holding influence in today’s culture, scientism is deeply flawed as a worldview.
