The Lost will be Found — The Parker J Cole Show

“I didn’t want to have anything to do with God,” Muriel told me as we sat under the shade of the palms trees in sunny California a few weeks ago. “I was an atheist for fifty-two years.” 

So begins the fascinating story of one woman’s tale from atheist to believer and an ambassador of Jesus Christ.

Does God pursue those of us who don’t want to have anything to do with Him? Does His Feet tread softly behind our running steps as we race in the other direction whenever we see a glimpse of His shadow in our lives? Do we duck around the corner when we hear a whisper of His voice we cannot ignore? Will those of us who are lost, be found?

The Good Atheist — Tonight on the Write Stuff

goodatheistJack Callaghan is a good atheist. He doesn’t believe in religious ‘fairy tales’ and won’t accept anything without evidence. Which is just as well, since faith of any kind is a cerebral crime in 2058.

His wife Selene used to be a super model. Once beautiful and confident, she became a recluse after a car accident left her horribly disfigured. Since then she hasn’t left the house, shunning friends and family and everyone who loves her. And she has no plans to ever step outside the front door again.

Both their lives are about to change forever when Jack inherits a secluded cabin in the woods. For within the cabin he finds evidence that his father, a famous scientist long believed dead, is alive and in hiding from the Tolerance Bureau. Jack sets out to find him, but his journey to find his father soon turns into a race for his life when he uncovers the explosive truth behind his father’s disappearance – a truth the Tolerance Bureau is desperate to conceal and will do anything to keep hidden.

Because behind his disappearance are the reasons his scientist father became a believer.

He graduated from college and worked as a computer programmer for 18 years before going into project management. His first book, a non-fiction computer guide was published in 1997. In 2004 he went into seminary and graduated with a Masters in Theological Studies.

He lives in south-western Ontario with his wife Pennie, where he continues writing.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Science vs. Religion

In the battle of ideas, this topic is one that represents the forces of good and evil, fantasy and reality, truth and lies…or does it? Is there really a battle between science and religion or is there more reason to believe they’re allies?

Many naturalistic scientists seem to have taken up an holy cause to differentiate intelligence from faith. Or, to put it another way, faith is a nebulous magical wand wielded by delusional people while intellect is the steadfast sun in the sky to view the world. Young people especially reject religion saying, “Science says this and that’s why I don’t believe in God in anymore.” Cue dramatic music…science has won the victory again.

But is that really the case? It is becoming more apparent that science and religion are not diametrically opposed to each other. In fact, they both provide each other the proper foundation in understanding the world. There’s a lot to this topic so we’ll be sitting down and chatting with my guest co host Trevor Slone — author of Science vs. Religion.
