Thank you for visiting my blog!


My name is Bruce and I live in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. My wife’s name Is Peggy and together we raised five children. I served 35 years in the Canadian Armed Forces.  After retiring from the military I worked another 19 years in private industry as an Information Technology (IT) Network Administrator and a Certified Google Apps Deployment Specialist.

I became a Christian in my mid twenties and I can remember as a new Christian I had a thousand and one questions. One of the objectives I have for this blog is to provide answers to many of the questions that I originally had. You’ll note that I have a “Christian Resources” page and a “Case Making 101” page. These pages, plus others, and 800+ posts, are all designed to provide documented evidence and follow-up information reinforcing the many facets of Christian Apologetics.

If you like the posts you read, please click on “Like” and if you’d like to receive more of these timely and inspirational posts, please consider “Following” my blog via the Follow This Blog Via Email option on the home page.

Welcome to “Reasoned Cases for Christ”. I look forward to hearing from you!

Worthy is the Lamb! Blessings!

    Hi Bruce,

    This is my first visit to your site. Looks great and from what I see, very edifying. I look forward to visiting more frequently.

    I just started a blog, theguiltybystander.wordpress.com. I find your refreshing and will read all the entries in time and offer appropriate responses- right now I’m a bit busy on the Obama campaign.

    Thanks for your insights


  3. Bruce says:

    Thanks for the feedback Jim, I visited your site also, although I am not a Roman Catholic, I can at least understand your frustration and sympathize with you. I also share your apparent enthusiasm with respect to Obama. God bless.

    I am curious about people who are Christians. would you be kind enough to discuss your beliefs with me?

    ‘I believe that it is through Christ’s atonement for us on the cross that we are saved and that through faith in His work, not my own’

    What exactly do you feel saved from?



  5. lindamowles says:

    Bruce, I found your blog through Brandon Adams’ blog about the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. I truly appreciate your points in this regard and am thankful that the Lord has used it to speak to me and others. I invite you to consider spending time at The Ruminant Scribe, at lindamowles.com. I pray it would be encouraging to you as yours was to me. Blessings to you today and throughout the year. Linda


  6. Hello, I have been reading several of your posts and I like the amount of work and study you put into it. I would like for you to write a guest post on my blog, please let me know if you’re interested and I’ll send more details. Vanessa

      • Thank you. I’ve asked other bloggers to write on what worship means them. What verse/ chapter/ situation from the Bible signifies worship to you? How do you make God a priority in your life, and how do you recognize His presence in your life?

        You can write whatever length (of post)that you are comfortable with.

        Deadline, if it works with your schedule, by the end of May please. If not, let me know what your earliest availability is.

        Thank you once again. Vanessa


      • Bruce says:

        Hi Vanessa, that should be fine. I work 5 days every 14 and today and tomorrow are two of them but I should be able to manage. Do you want me to send it to you in an email and you will just copy and paste? Blessings.


      • Yes that would be great. I’d also like a short bio of yourself and a picture (of you) that you’re willing to share. You’re more than welcome to give me a featured image to use, or I will find one. I also include a Christian song at the end (one that glorifies God / mentions Him by name).

        Thank you again.


      • Bruce says:

        Hi Vanessa, I sent the post and other items you requested to your email address, please let me know if you received it. Thanks


      • Bruce says:

        Hi Vanessa, could you send me your email address so that I can send you the post and items you requested. Please send it to bruce.planbsolutions@gmail.com
        Thank you.


  7. I did receive it this morning. Thank you for sending the post to me so quickly. Have a great weekend.


  8. The post is beautifully written

  9. Novia Scotia, Anne of Green Gables country! What a nice area. I’ve been reading around you blog, and love it. I’m especially enjoying the Tabernacle series!! Blessings on you and your family, from Italy!


    • Bruce says:

      Thanks Sheila, we’re just common Christians, like you and Mario, although I’m thinking you’ve spent a bit more time in the vineyard than we have. God is good.


  10. Thank you Bruce. Poetry is a “shorthand form of communicating ” that can be artfully colored to make it more attractive. This is what I do fluently as the Lord has enabled me. But poetry is not my main written expression as a follower of the Shepherd. But it’s easier to share with “a few”.
    I pray that your family”s path would continue to be fruitful in God’s sight. “from strength to strength; from glory to glory” Gary B.

    Hello Bruce it’s great to meet a fellow Christian blogger especially one that specializes in apologetics which is one of my favorite areas of study. Very much looking forward to getting to know you better through your writing I did read your post on Graham and will be looking into him further.

    I am certainly much newer at this but if you ever want to collaborate please let me know. Could be a lot of fun.

    Stay strong & stand tall

      Hi Keith, just want to tell you that I think what you are doing is great. I read through your short book and I can see how following the process would work. You speak of how God made Himself known to you, I’d be interested in knowing what happened. Would also like to know where you live, and anything else that would help me get to know you better. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time if you have any questions or want to bounce something off of me. Here’s my email address if you want to go off line: bruce.planbsolutions@gmail.com
      With regard to collaboration, I’m open, just let me know what you have in mind. I’m a tad older than you (73) but if you are anything like what I saw on your blog, there’s a lot to like! I’m sure we’ll be talking again. God’s grace and blessings on you and yours!

    Blessing Bruce!


    • Bruce says:

      Hi M’Kayla, sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. I did read through a good number of your posts and your witness with regard to the IAHR, which I found very informative. As you may be aware, I have also posted a number of articles on the false teachings of this movement and it’s history. Sincerely appreciate your dedicated work and effort. Blessings to you also!

    Thank you Bruce and all of you Christ’s brothers and sisters.
    Before saying a thing I’d like to thank God for b ringing men and women who are shaping building one another for the kingdom.

    Brethren, in my group, we are on Hebrews 9; as we start this coming Thursday, Jan 10, 2019 I saw the past i.e Tabernacle system. This is not known to many of us, but would like to learn more especially about: Outer and Inner Courts. On top of that help know who was allowed in Outer Court and who was allowed in Inner Court. About Holy and Most Holy Places I’ve read. I’d as well like to know the meaning of both of the terms because the picture shows me a fence, so it is hard to see the Outer and the Inner

    I am thanking you in advance

    • Bruce says:

      Hi Epimac, I’d be happy to answer your questions but the earliest I can get back to you on it would be on Thursday. I told Vanessa to give you my email address so send me your email address and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Grace and blessings.
