God Against the gods: Yahweh Vs. Leviathan

Is Leviathan in the Bible a dinosaur? A whale? A sea monster? NO! He is the many-headed sea dragon of chaos. God used Leviathan as a very important covenantal symbol.

God Against the gods: What C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien Understood About Myth

This is a video I made to help explain to Christians the power of myth in storytelling that they often miss out on because of their fear of that word, “myth” as meaning a false tale. It does not. CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien understood this. So should we. Or we miss out on all God has for us with our imagination. Watch the video to find out.

The Movie IT: Christians Who Condemn All Horror Need to Grow Up

I was interviewed by John Piper’s website in response to their questions about horror movies. Understandably, and respectfully, they do not share my appreciation of horror. But they were very open-minded and open-hearted to listen to me and give me a voice.

I really think Christians need to realize the tremendous moral power of the horror genre. It’s not for everyone, but God loves the horror genre, so Christians should at least respect it.

God Against the gods – Part 1: What C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien Understood About Myth

Check out this YouTube video on God Against the gods: What C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien Understood about Myth.

I explain what the definition of Myth is, and Mythopoeia, concepts that Lewis and Tolkien trafficked in — as does the Bible.

Christians don’t need to be afraid of this word, “myth” as if it means the Bible is false or fictional. It doesn’t. It’s about the stories that give meaning and purpose to our lives. Transcendence.

Lewis said, “If God chooses to be mythopoeic, should we choose to be mythopathic?” Find out what that means.

This is only one part of the lecture. Get the full version here.
