Welcome to the redesigned, refocused
After months of dormancy, the Serious Christian Institute has risen again.
We apologize to those who may have been incovenienced because our previously published materials have been so long out of reach.
Frankly, right now most of them still are out of reach. The directory to the right is still for the most part a list of rooms waiting to be filled. Your patience is appreciated.
It's going to take some time, but soon this ark will be filled again with articles and items both old and new. Keep checking back--and thanks for visiting!
Pardon the 'dust.' We're still under (re)construction.

Did Jesus Become God in A.D. 325?
Novelist Dan Brown proposed that thesis in his 2003 blockbuster thriller The Da Vinci Code, but he was neither the first nor the last to do so.
The Council of Nicea (A.D. 325) was truly a momentous event in the history of Christianity, and crucial decisions were made that affected its direction forever. But did it really decide by fiat that certain books would be Scripture and that Jesus is God?
What really happened at Nicea? The fiction writer claims to tell us the "true" story, but how does it square with the facts. Read about it here.
