Disillusionment: The Christian Response Do you remember the scene in the movie Braveheart when William Wallace is betrayed by Scottish noblemen? He thought they were on his side during a crucial battle against England only to learn they had been bought off. The...read more
Religious zealots are not created equal. Do you know someone who is religious, someone whose life seems to be guided by his or her faith? The way they talk, the things they do or don’t do, the way they dress or don’t dress, what they do, or don’t do, with their...read more

The Total Solar Eclipse of 1919 Today I want to explain how the total solar eclipse in 1919 made Albert Einstein a celebrity. To do that, I must refer to his General Theory of Relativity. And I simply cannot grasp it. I was taught it, I’ve read about it, I’ve watched...read more
Astronomy is by far the oldest science. Adam and Eve certainly marked off their days by the rising and setting sun, and marked their months by the moon’s phases. They watched the star patterns come and go with the seasons. And about one hundred years ago, astronomers...read more
Gene is a high energy, “all-fun-all-the-time” type of teacher. His enthusiasm on every conceivable topic is contagious. A biblical, Christ-centered worldview permeates everything he does.
Gene had a 31-year Air Force career, starting as a Cold War defender, then Operation Desert Shield/Storm, and finally Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. Most of his time was in the Munitions career field, but he finished as Professor of Aerospace Studies at California State University, San Bernardino. He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2005. He has a B.A. in Political Science, an M.P.A. in Public Administration, and completed Air Command & Staff College in residence.
Teaching is his passion: six years in the Air Force, six years in a public high school, and six years as an on-line teacher to homeschooled students. On-line Christian teaching is his calling. To come alongside parents as they endeavor to teach their children at home is the pinnacle of his life’s work.
Those 17 years of formal teaching pale in comparison to his 32 years of teaching adult Bible classes. The Air Force moved him 13 times, but that did not deter him from quickly getting engaged in a local church and using his gift of teaching to build the Kingdom of God. Teach through the week, then teach on Sunday; it is what Gene does, it is who Gene is.
