The 'BARKING OWL' always has something to say, and like the feathered version, can be either WISE...............or ANNOYING!

a·pol·o·get·ics [uh-pol-uh-jet-iks]
noun ( used with a singular verb )
the branch of theology concerned with the defense or proof of Christianity.

Being so often tempted to stick my Christian nose in where it may not belong, I have discovered that there are many good folks living their good lives under bad impressions of the Christian faith (perhaps my errant nose has something to do with this sad state).  Nobody should believe something that makes no sense to them, obviously; but then again, we must each be careful that our sense-checker is working properly and is fueled only by pure clean facts.

There is not room here for the longer arguments that can be made to "prove" the Christian view on major doctrines.  My approach will be to offer short descriptions of my (hopefully orthodox) view on various basic topics related to the Christian faith, in order to dispel some little fog.

This month I hope to clear up a few of the awkward ideas that I have been surprised and dismayed to find.
Please accept my humble apologies if, in my zeal, I have ever stepped on your toes, and consider dropping by to review my "apologetics" from A to Z.

By the way...MILLERWRITES copy is COPYRIGHTED. Why cut and paste when you can simply copy the link?


  1. I have no idea what a drrant nose is, but this is a super subject for a series! <><

  2. I thought a well-lettered wordsmith like yourself would be familiar with popular folk icons. You've never heard of the big-nosed Jimmy Durante? I tried to be folksy, using the shortened version (drrant)but I guess since it did not work I will change the word to "errant" (conveniently, the d and e are close together on the keyboard).


I can't wait to see your response so, unless you can leave a pizza, please leave the next best thing; your comment!
