“Sinners in the Hands of an angry blog” the precious namesake of this blog, is a reference to the most popular sermon ever preached in America, “Sinners in the Hands of an angry God”. This sermon was preached by the Reformed Revivalist with a Puritan ethic and a philosophical thinktank of a mind, Jonathan Edwards.
He’s my favorite theologian and has had quite the influence on my own theology. Anyway, My name is Tony, I run this little humble blog. A little information about me: I’m currently in an associate program in applied science. I became a Christian at 18, you can read my testimony here. I love to read and apologetics kinda stemmed out of that, once I read a couple hundred books on apologetic issues, I decided that it was something I was interested in doing, though I do not intend to make it a career, but a God-Glorifying hobby.
Why the Logo?
I chose this logo for several reasons. The most important being my belief that Science and Religion are not opposed to one another, another our a priori assumptions often are. I love science, math and science were my favorite subjects in High School, and as I said before, I’m going to college for an applied science degree. So, I’m not just some Christian who is too lazy to study the science and just automatically interpret any scientific discovery that seemingly disagrees with my interpretation of the Bible as false and a satanic conspiracy. I also find it as a pun on 1 Corinthians 15:22, “In Adam(Atom) All Die”, we are all made of atoms, and we will all die. This isn’t a seriously disputed point in theology and skeptics would affirm this as well. Plus, it looks cool, so why not?
Warning: I try to be funny
I like to make jokes and I have a sarcasm that rivals the Prophet Elijah, if humor doesn’t appeal to you I may not be your cup of tea. But whenever you go to an Ivory Towery Scholar type, it gets boring and dryer than the Sahara desert when trying to read about a topic, even if it’s interesting to me. I think we should inject personality into our writing, whether you’re a professional or just a layman like me. My friends and I like to call this type of apologetics, “ApoLOLgetics.”
