Mr. Johnson has served as a Director and Adviser to numerous public and private corporations, government agencies and non-profit organizations. He is the author of many articles and commentaries, and speaks on issues related to technology, education, religion and culture. Educated in the public school system and at highly regarded private colleges, he remains a voracious reader and dialectically adventurous. Not surprisingly he is often challenged to reconcile apparent conflicts between science and theology; Mr. Johnson consistently affirms three cardinal principles: The material universe was designed by an intelligent beginner, and is the product of a first cause event from great nothingness. It is unfathomably perfect, reflecting both the grandeur and majesty of its creator. It evidences natural laws of cause and effect, and others that reveal a material universe sustained by transcendent authority. Man is a relationally conjoined troika: a temporal corporeal body, and eternal non-material invested soul and spirit, reflecting the image of the Creator. Man was terminally estranged from the Creator by bent of the free-will choices of his aboriginal ancestors, which relationship and standing were fully and freely restored by the atoning gift of Christ the Son of God. The Creators Word illuminates rather than censors his worldview and commentary, and precludes his unconditional embrace of red, blue, black, white, conservative, liberal, libertarian, left, right, or center inspired orthodoxy. “I am compelled to discern the intractable relationships of truth and love from deception and fear”. It's best to stay in touch with both sides of an issue. A person who fears God deals responsibly with all of reality, not just a piece of it.
