What is Three Guys and a Blog?
This is an attempt to share the truth and love of Christ by presenting the Gospel. We’re doing it because if Christianity is true, there really is nothing better that we can be doing. After all, spending time doing things that have eternal consequences can’t be a waste of time. However, we also know that not everyone has the time or the inclination to work this stuff out for themselves. We do, so we’re going to share our conversations with those that are lucky enough to find us here and unfortunate enough not to have the time to join us for coffee. (Coffee. Proof that God loves us and wants us to enjoy our insomnia.)
We’re going to be having a conversation about Christianity. The issue is not about what we want or hope to be the case, but about whether or not the central points of Christianity are true, if the events that are fundamental to Christianity really happened. Truth and reality are fairly important and if Christianity isn’t true, we’d rather be done with it and get on with whatever actually is true. We hope that you find what we’re doing here to be helpful and encouraging. We hope that if you are starting from a different place that you approach this with an open mind, but feel free to ask questions and challenge us. We wouldn’t be doing this if we couldn’t stand up to a little criticism. That being said, we’re going to be operating on a few general principles:
Logic and faith are compatible, but it’s not always obvious.
Science can inform theology, and theology can inform science.
We do know things, sometimes without knowing how we know them.
Honestly, there’s a lot of common sense that can be applied and for some reason, a lot of people tend to let that go by the wayside when it comes to fundamental and ultimate issues. We can and should be smarter than that.
