About This Blog

This blog is about showing that the Bible is true from start to finish.

The more clearly you can articulate why you believe this

  • the more confidence you will have in your own faith
  • the more peaceful you will feel about your relationship with God
  • and the more motivated you will be to share the good news with others

Remember! God is real and the Bible is true and you don’t have to be afraid to tell people about it!

About Me

Hi there. I’m Geoff.

I defend and promote the truth of Christianity and the Bible.

I grew up in a Christian home, and have always believed in God. But it wasn’t until my friends hit me over the head with some ultimatum’s that I realised how important it was to live my life in a way that honours Jesus Christ.

Here’s my testimony in more detail if you’re interested

About My Education

I have two degrees.

  • Philosophy – majoring in the philosophy of science and religion
  • Science – majoring in evolutionary genetics and ecology

I completed my honours degree in quantitative genetics for which I received a High Distinction and a Dean’s commendation.

I’m currently a PhD student studying human quantitative genetics in psychiatry.

What does that mean?

It means I use large, powerful computers to analyse large biobanks of human genetic data, trying to understand the role genetics plays in who we are.

It involves a lot of math and statistics, but I don’t have to wear a lab coat, so I like it.

I have also co-authored a paper published in Nature Genetics, which is pretty cool.

About My Apologetics

Besides my degrees, I have read dozens of books about many topics in Christianity, apologetics (especially creationism) and all things related for many years.

If you’re a Christian, this blog will help you understand that the Bible is objectively true, and there are very good reasons for believing what it says.

This is important because when you can understand and explain the truth of the Bible with confidence, it will empower you to boldly share it with those who need to hear its message.

I write about Christianity, apologetics, creation science, Christian history and anything else that I think is cool (in a nerdy kind of way) and will help strengthen your faith in Christ and trust in the Bible.

This blog takes very seriously the Biblical command that we are to:

honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you
1 Peter 3:15 – via Bible Gateway

So please, take a look around and enjoy.

About My Life

I have a wife and three children.

Despite my fascination with tossing my children into the air, squealing with glee, and catching them upside down, I live in constant and irrational fear for their safety.

I could not do what I do without my wife. She’s a rock. She’s strong, intelligent and supportive of any and all of my harebrained pipe dreams, like being a work-from-home writer and internet celebrity with hordes of adoring fans.

I’m a patchwork of inconsistent and contradictory likes and hobbies including being a half-hearted gym junkie, an awkward and introverted programmer and book-worm, beginner snowboarder, fantasy and sci-fi fan, and a strident critic of social media, especially FaceBook.

I also enjoy a good heated conversation amongst friends.

About My Faith…

I believe the Bible is true from the first verse to the last, inerrant in its original form and that it has been reliably preserved through time and various translations so that, whilst not perfectly accurate today, is still correct, especially on those crucial doctrinal points necessary for salvation, and a sufficient understanding of God’s character, earth’s history etc.

I believe that it was perfectly accurate and correct at the time of writing, being directly inspired by the Holy Spirit.

I’m a conservative Christian in almost every sense of the word. I’m practically Medieval.

  • Biblical creationist
  • Pro life
  • Pro traditional marriage
  • Trinitarian
  • Cessationist
  • I fully acknowledge, God’s total sovereignty, and human responsibility and free-will

  1. Hi. From what you wrote on your website – I fully acknowledge, God’s total sovereignty, and human responsibility and free-will. – I take it that you believe that predestination and free will are both correct (middle knowledge) depending on the individual person. Is that correct?

    • I would not describe myself as an avowed reformer, but as you say, I do fully acknowledge God’s sovereignty and human responsibility.

      I don’t consider myself a molinist.
