The Meaning of Life

Many people attempt to find the meaning of life without the Bible. Cliff explores why this is an exercise in futility.

Suppose, Just Suppose

Suppose the origin story of the earth is true? What implications would it have on our lives? Cliff discusses this supposition of the biblical origin story, and what this might mean for humanity.

Principles of Marriage

Cliff departs from his typical topics like metaphysics, cosmology, and eschatology to discuss something he has had over 35 years of experience in – marriage.

The Logic of Existence

Is our existence logical? Can logic be used to explain how we got here? The evidence may show that it is nothing short of miraculous.

Existence as Accident

How do you trust the conclusions of someone who believes that all existence is an accident? You don’t. Cliff Goldstein gives the clearest answer why, according to his theory, even his conclusion may be an accident.

Tolstoy's Confessions

Leo Tolstoy was once the world’s most famous writer. He had all the world had to offer. So, what led him down the path to despair, despite all his worldly success? Cliff identifies what was missing.

Called by Name

Cliff Goldstein tells his own personal story of growing up Jewish and the miraculous series of events that led him to become a Christian.

Barbra Ehrenreich’s Search for the Truth about Everything

An atheist woman does everything she can to find “truth” outside of God, but ironically her efforts only bring her to know the God of truth.

The Logic of the Miraculous

Miracles in their essence, cannot be explained. Then how about finding logic in a miracle? would not that be trying to explain it? Cliff explains in fascinating detail the logic of the miraculous.

Embarrassing The Faith

Many individuals believe in evolution. That either chance, a big-bang, or any other thought that can “explain” the universe, can be accepted as the origin of things. That can be accepted usually in the scientific community, where the backing of evolution is almost a requirement. It is unusual, however, that Christians will subscribe to this idea. Cliff goes in detail and explains why such individuals, do in fact, embarrass the faith.

Why Live If You Can Be Buried for Ten Dollars?

Human nature intrinsically rejects the idea of death. Even the most avid evolutionists will, at some point, have to face this reality… the reality of dying. Cliff shares what must be accepted if every person is to face this reality in peace.

Who Gets the Ventilator?

The Theory of Evolution at its core denies basic, moral elements. The popular premise, “survival of the fittest,” goes in stark contrast to Jesus’ teachings of serving and helping the needy. Once again Cliff proves in scientific terms the dissonance between humanistic thought and heavenly teachings.
