God Speaks: Thoughts on Lost and Avatar

Let’s be honest, God can reveal truth through anything; burnt toast, puffy clouds, and even Hollywood productions.  Now before I get started, I just want it to be known, I’m a Word-guy.  Although God can speak through anything and everything, I believe that His main ways of communicating to us is through His Word and also through the person of […]

The Use of Symbolism in the Bible

It is perhaps undeniable that symbolism is used throughout the scriptures.  The psalmists paint vivid word pictures as they describe God’s unchanging nature and his mighty works, Paul uses countless analogies to portray the contrast of law and grace, and even Jesus himself uses parables and symbols to share the wonders of the kingdom of […]
