What Do You Seek?

In the first chapter of John's Gospel, we find two of the disciples of John the Baptist following Jesus who, seeing them following asks a pointed question, What do you seek? It is a question the Lord still asks of all who seek to follow him...

Mercy to Dogs

The passage found in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 15:22-28, strikes many as one of the more harsh sounding pronouncements of our Lord. It almost seems as though he is relegating a Canaanite woman seeking his help to no more than the status of a dog! Nothing could be further from the truth...

The Remission of Sins

There is a seeming mystery in the fact that Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist whose baptism is commonly considered to be a baptism of repentance. How then, would such a baptism apply to One who was sinless?

Supporting FatherBound

Hi, this is Michael…

I’d like to take a moment to thank you for listening to the FatherBound podcast. I love doing them and deeply appreciate the growing audience of listeners! Like others who take writing and podcasting seriously, I’m encouraged whenever a listener takes the time to share their thoughts or supports the podcast financially. Some folks know where to go to make these connections and some don’t. So, twice a month, I’ll tell you. For two reasons.

First, I can look at audience metrics all day but it won’t take the place of hearing your words and beginning to know who you are and what you’re thinking. Second, the financial support is more helpful than you might imagine. A dollar a month may not sound like much but it can make a very real difference!

To either share your thoughts or contribute a buck simply visit FatherBound.com and click on either the Contact or Contribute link displayed in both the right-hand column and the footer of the Home page.

Why Crucify Your Son?

There are those dear to me who, in their inquiry into the claims of Christianity, stumble over the idea of a God who would slay his own Son—especially by the agony of crucifixion. And because they are so very dear to me I will do my best to give an answer. Whether or not it proves satisfactory remains questionable for I have sometimes found that objections to Christianity are not always what they seem on the surface but reflect something more deeply rooted. I am also keenly aware how limited our (and my own in particular) insight is into the fathomless wonder of God. As a close friend of mine so succinctly puts it, “All I know from personal experience and investigation is that God is incredibly good, does things with incredible kindness, and intends things only incredibly loving - the rest, to me, is a mystery.” What follows, therefore, is simply my own sense of the question at hand as best I grasp it.

C.S. Lewis - We Have Cause To Be Uneasy

Mere Christianity — Right And Wrong As a Clue To The Meaning Of the Universe (Part 5)

We now find ourselves at the fifth and final episode of our five-part journey of exploration into Christian thought as put forward so compellingly by C.S. Lewis in a portion of his book, Mere Christianity. These five segments have taken us along a path of unerring logic.

Anyone familiar with Lewis’ writings cannot help but appreciate how well he makes his arguments through readily grasped illustrations that intrigue and add weight to his claims. Though these illustrations come from a time in England long past and can, at times, seem outdated to our ears the disadvantage is slight and hardly detracts from their impact.

What you are about to hear in We Have Cause To Be Uneasy builds on the previous episode, What Lies Behind The Law.
