About

 

It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism; but depth in philosophy brings about man’s mind to religion: For while the mind of man looketh upon second causes scattered, it may sometimes rest in them, and go no further; but when it beholdeth the chain of them confederate and linked together, it must needs fly to Providence and Deity.

– Sir Francis Bacon

I am presently working as a legal consultant. My primary interests, in addition to litigation management and research, include philosophy of justice, philosophy of theology, systematic theology, epistemology, and the intersection between philosophy and Christian theism.

 

A friendly note to atheists, including those who claim to be former Christians:  If you wish to discuss a particular theological point, I’d be happy to do so, but I would first encourage you to study the following books a bit so that we may have a common frame of reference concerning Christian thought; this will better aid a constructive discussion:  C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity and Nancy Pearcy’s Total Truth.

 

Regarding theological issues, you may also wish to consider the following:

 

(i) basic historic evidences regarding the Christian faith (literary, archeological);

 

(ii) the internal Scriptural claims of divinely inspired authorship and, related, the person of Jesus Christ.

 

(iii) basic epistemological language (most discussions will invariably lead to this topic of how we “know” anything);

 

(iv) basic language regarding the will (i.e., the most pressing desire of the heart necessarily leading to action); and

 

(v) the universal religious “bent” of all peoples, nations, tribes, etc., and why this may be important in pointing to the fact that there is a God.
