The Gospel according to Disney's "Tangled"

Somehow, I subconsciously understood this whole chain of reasoning in the brilliant flash of that single moment, while my conscious mind was caught completely by surprise and left simply reeling. I only remember being slammed by a magnificent sense of epiphany, overwhelmed by an ineffable feeling of significance. I could never recapture that moment fully; that is as it should be. By the time that my brain had caught up to my subconscious realizations [...], I was saying to myself, "This may be my favorite movie of all time".

The Gospel according to Disney's "Frozen"

"Frozen" is the story of perfect love casting out fear. [...] It's true that its makers didn't sit down and say "hey, let's tell the story of the Christian Gospel". They merely told the truth that underlies the whole universe, like all art is supposed to do. But in doing so - in expressing this truth well - they managed to tell the one and only story in the whole universe. So "Frozen" is in fact a Christian movie - in the sense that all good movies are. After all, there is only one story in the universe.

The Gospel: the central message of Christianity (part 3)

This post and its subsequent parts have been merged into a single post. You should read that instead. The previous post of this series ended with John 3:16, which states that whoever believes in Christ will not perish, but have eternal life. That finally brings us to "Christ", the first and the most important word […]

The Gospel: the central message of Christianity (part 2)

This post and its subsequent parts have been merged into a single post. You should read that instead. The previous post of this series ended with: "Who shall save me from this wretched body of death?" We thus reach the second word in the three-word summary of the Gospel ("Christ saves sinners"). What can we […]

The Gospel: the central message of Christianity (part 1)

This post and its subsequent parts have been merged into a single post. You should read that instead. There is only one story in the universe. Occasionally I'll find a badly told story, which still attempts to convey the message of Christianity. Of such works I've said "you can't blame it for not being the […]

Science as evidence for Christianity (Summary and Conclusion)

This is the summary and conclusion post for the "Science as evidence for Christianity" series. It contains links to all other posts in the series. Please view the individual posts for a more thorough discussion. We consider the whole of science as evidence to decide among various worldviews. This evidence overwhelmingly supports Christianity against its […]

Christian predictions on the future of science (part 2)

In the previous post of this series, I promised two more predictions on the future of science based on Christianity. I said that they'd be different from the science of the past, or the current expectations of the future. Here they are: In the future, science will have much to say about morality, in contrast to […]

Christian predictions on the future of science (part 1)

In the previous post of this series, we examined the limits of science as evidence for Christianity. Thus far, we have seen that compared to atheistic worldviews, Christianity gives a better account of science in every way. Christianity explains the starting point of science, the trajectory of its progress, and what lies at or beyond […]

The limits of science as evidence for Christianity

In the previous post of this series, we finished looking at the trends in sciences. Thus far, we've seen that Christianity explains science, by explaining its starting points, and its progression. Thus science is evidence for Christianity. If that was the extent of its explanatory powers, then Christianity would only be a very useful philosophical presupposition. […]

The trends in science as evidence for Christianity against atheism (part 2)

This is a continuation from the previous post of this series, where I consider the trends in scientific discoveries as evidence and show that they support Christianity over atheism. It is a part of a series of posts where I show that all of science, taken as a whole, supports Christianity over atheism. The question under […]
