About the Book

The treatment of migrants is a hotly contested Biblical interpretation issue. Bible verses are being used by both sides of this debate in an attempt to add credence to their arguments. An entire chapter is devoted to the mischaracterization of Bible verses that shows the multitude of debating fallacies used. There are nuances in the protests against Christian values that boil over into a person’s vocation, climate change opinion, judging of issues, political preference, and of course abortion stance. Social justice is an evolutionary term. Definitions of words and terms change depending on which group of people use the word. Justice is a strongly held Biblical principle. Social justice does not have a legitimate definition for many as it is not Biblical justice and is again misrepresented and used against Christians. Again, this is an issue where Biblical verses are used by both sides of the argument. Churches and denominations are now discussing the culture of the church. Some have become more liberalized to satisfy their congregations and others have, against resistance, maintained their original doctrines. These discussions have been ongoing in 2019 and the final story is yet unfolding. This has led to Christians evaluating their own spirituality in light of the abundance of questioning opinions they confront.

He has science degrees from the University of Tennessee and Cornell University. He is a two tour disabled Vietnam veteran that continues to be motivated by his wife of 49 years to keep learning new things instead of going stupid.
