Criticism of Ken Ham — Though in the past I have been a big supporter of Ken Ham and Answers in Genesis, in the last year or so I’ve begun to rethink his methods, if not his conclusions.

The article linked is the best critical summary of Ham’s teaching methods from a Christian perspective I’ve heard, and deserves your consideration, no matter where you stand on your view of the age of the Earth.

Happy Birthday, Brother — Though it’s more than a week belated, my dad has written a pretty cool post in honor of my brother’s birthday. Though every father is probably prone to brag and exaggerate on his sons, I can testify that David really is as impressive and talented as Dad makes him sound, and we’re all very proud of him! We don’t always see eye-to-eye, but outside of my wife and son, there’s no one I love more.
Here’s yet another great “sermon jam”, with clips taken from a Matt Chandler message. (HT: Timmy Brister)
