The Apologetics of Jesus

Something had gone terribly wrong. The Messiah had arrived but the Kingdom, which would be characterized by liberty, freedom, and the just rule of God, had not arrived. Instead, John the Baptist found himself in prison awaiting execution. Confused and discouraged, John sent his disciples to Jesus to ask Him, “Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?" (Lk. 7:20). Jesus responds by pointing to the testimony of His miracles: “Go back and report to John what you hear and see. The lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.” (Lk. 7:22-23). When asked by John if He was indeed the Messiah, Jesus defends His claim by pointing to the testimony of His miracles. Miracles represent another component in the apologetics of Jesus.

It’s Past Time to Rethink Modern Sexual Morality

And for powerful people in particular, the ask so often has fruitful results — sometimes out of genuine desire, sometimes out of fear, and sometimes out of a sense of intimidated resignation — that the ask quickly blurs into expectation, and expectations can yield demands. But the pressure of course doesn’t simply come from those with corporate or political clout. Power is defined by more than wealth or fame. People who seek companionship and love feel sexual pressure to initiate or preserve relationships. Sometimes people want to simply fit in with the dominant culture, to feel included rather than excluded.

The Perilous Pitfalls Facing "Tent-Making" Christian Case Makers | Cold Case Christianity

The Struggle for Audience No one writes a blog hoping it will go unread, or records a podcast hoping it will go unheard. If you’re making the case for Christianity regularly, you probably want a jury to hear it. But how will anyone even know about your work if you’re not part of a large, marketable apologetics organization? I’ve known a number of ODA’s who got frustrated when they realized their audience was much smaller than they hoped. When you feel like no one’s paying attention, it’s hard to get up early to post a blog.

Living Faithfully in Difficult Times

Living Faithfully in Difficult Times by Melinda Penner I recently listened to a sermon about how Christians can live faithfully in times of opposition, preached by Tim Keller several years ago at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. The lesson is drawn from the book of Habakkuk. It’s encouraging to reflect on the fact that God’s followers in biblical times lived in societies that opposed them and made it difficult to faithfully follow God. And all of us have times in our lives that are hard to live through. I know sometimes I need more courage for both kinds of difficult times, and I found the lessons Keller drew from Habakkuk 2:1–4 to be encouraging. We need to develop skills to live faithfully in the circumstances of this world, and I thought there were some practical lessons in this sermon. We are to live patiently, perspectively, obediently, God-centrically, and joyfully. Patiently God tells Habakkuk that he will wait for God to answer. But waiting in this context isn’t a passive thing; it’s active. Waiting biblically means deliberately humbling ourselves before God and being patient for His timing.

A Look at the Apologetics of Paul

In this post, I want to examine some of the methods and apologetic approaches that Paul used in reaching his culture for the Gospel. There has been a lot of debate on the topic of apologetic methodology.  Which approach should we take in following Paul’s example? Presuppositional or Evidential? We need to look at various approaches Paul used before declaring there is only one approach to use in our present culture. I have noted elsewhere about the educational background of Paul.

EPS Blog - Evangelical Philosophical Society

Did the universe begin to exist? If so, did it have a cause? Or could it have come into existence uncaused, from nothing? These questions are taken up by the medieval-though recently-revived-kalam cosmological argument, which has arguably been the most discussed philosophical argument for God's existence in recent decades. The kalam's line of reasoning maintains that the series of past events cannot be infinite but rather is finite. Since the universe could not have come into being uncaused, there must be a transcendent cause of the universe's beginning, a conclusion supportive of theism. This anthology on the philosophical arguments for the finitude of the past asks: Is an infinite series of past events metaphysically possible? Should actual infinites be restricted to theoretical mathematics, or can an actual infinite exist in the concrete world? These essays by kalam proponents and detractors engage in lively debate about the nature of infinity and its conundrums; about frequently-used kalam argument paradoxes of Tristram Shandy, the Grim Reaper, and Hilbert's Hotel; and about the infinity of the future.


Communal Reading in the Time of Jesus: An Interview with Brian J. Wright:  cc: @Fortresspress @etsjets @PBAtlantic

Demolish Atheism with Ontology Frequently summoned as justification for atheism and skepticism, modern science actually offers reasons to affirm Christian theism. More than that, without the truth of Christianity, one could not even do science. Using fresh ontological apologetics, Robinson challenges the dogmas of atheism, relativism, and materialism as he demonstrates that only the existence of God explains reality, including: matter, knowledge, logic, morality, space, order, design, evidence, science, and personal identity--learn how to demonstrate that the whole material cosmos requires God. The proof, truth, and evidence are everywhere.If you are tired of getting rebutted by unbelievers and atheists this study does NOT offer routine arguments that are:•Stale•Expected •Predictable•Publicly Repetitive•Anticipated by unbelieversTo be sure, Robinson recognizes that the aggressive New Atheists attempt to sweep away the truth of Christianity, but the listener quickly learns that only Christian theism can overcome skepticism and completely rinse away doubt.The reader comes away with an innovative refutation of atheism as well as disproof of skepticism, relativism, naturalism, and universal doubt.

Should Teens Own Smartphones?

It definitely fed my FOMO (fear of missing out). It fed into some insecurity. Even though my friends never made me feel weird for not having a smartphone, it was an expectation, so they were surprised when they discovered I didn’t have one. There were times when I was the outlier. And not only with friends but also with my generation at large. I’d be walking through the mall or waiting in line or stopped on the sidewalk, and I would look around, fully present and disconnected — and stare at a sea of teens glued to smartphones. I was an exception, and that felt uncomfortable.

The Courage to Be Ordinary: Help for Average Christian Leaders

Most ministry is rightly done in obscurity. My best stories are those that few will ever know. As hard as that is, I think that’s very appropriate. For in those cases, my Father sees, understands, appreciates, and affirms. And that’s enough. One day God will say to me, “Well done, good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21), and give me the “unfading crown of glory” (1 Peter 5:4). Sometimes he gives me a foretaste of that through the affirmation and praise from others, but most of my ministry will be in obscurity.

It’s a bit concerning that kids know the name of a non-existent electrical rabbit but not an otter. And there’s a more important point, too. The Bible’s packed with illustrations from nature.

Literary Forms, Part 1 by R.C. Sproul | October 17, 2017

God Made Our Brains to Need Others

Suffering internalized is dark and heavy, but suffering shared engenders courage and hope. In those early years of illness, I gave up on my survival strategy of withdrawal and self-sufficiency by bringing my helplessness and grief into the open. As I shared my suffering with friends, I found validation. The safe harbor of friendship gave me space to compassionately accept the pain, sorrow, and limitations sickness had introduced into my life. Honesty with others unlocked even more honesty with God, and I found the cry of my heart was echoed by many of the psalmists. I learned to embrace my suffering as a provocative gift for others to begin receiving healing validation for their own pain.

Now what makes this article important is not just its placement in the New York Times and it’s not just the worldview, indeed the religion of birth control, that is reflected here, but the incredible honesty that eventually comes out in the article. But even more significant than that is the author of the article. Linda Greenhouse is one of the most familiar names amongst the readers of the New York Times. For almost 30 years she covered the United States Supreme Court for the nation’s most influential newspaper. Furthermore, she is now a senior fellow at the Yale Law School based upon her experience as the nation’s foremost journalist covering the Supreme Court. She also in the course of her journalistic career was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. But Linda Greenhouse is writing this article. And as it becomes clear, it’s not as much about the law as you might expect. It’s about far deeper issues and that’s the real story. Even in the very beginning of the article, it’s clear that Greenhouse understands the contraception and birth-control issue, especially in light of President Trump’s announcement of reversing the Obama Administration so-called contraception mandate.

Far Worse Than Being Caught: Fighting Sin with Fear

If you are falling in love with the world, and about to exchange the glory of God for the dream of gold, ponder which is worse: waking up with gravel in your mouth, or being handed over to ever deepening perversion? So, we read: “God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves. . . . God gave them up to dishonorable passions. . . . God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done” (Romans 1:24–28).

Good News for Christians

This is why Jesus gave us the great commission (ie: Matthew 28:16-20). And it is why growing in our understanding and worldview is so vital. Because “if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.” (1 Peter 3:15) Understanding the Christian worldview is important to being prepared to share our faith. And when we share our faith and live in obedience to Him; we fulfill our purpose of glorifying God. The truly good news for Christians is that we have the indwelling Holy Spirit to drive our desire to grow in our Christ-likeness and to give us discernment. And our understanding of the Christian worldview is certainly one barometer of our growth!

Lecrae’s ‘All Things Work Together’ Is a Grace-Filled Mic Drop

In All Things Work Together, Lecrae talks about how his mother revealed to him the bias of his schoolbooks, which led to a different understanding of American history that included the Middle Passage—the route slaves took from Africa to the Americas. He speaks about the important role of historical figures such as Chuck Berry, Eldridge Cleaver, and Angela Davis. As he recently explained in an interview with the women of Truth’s Table , Lecrae was raised with a certain level of black consciousness that he felt he had to put to the side once he became a Christian. More than just revealing his upbringing, though, these songs also point to the ways in which Lecrae felt he had to suppress parts of his identity. Rather than a new Lecrae, then, All Things Work Together actually brings the fullness of his identity as an African American, Christian, father, husband, and rapper to the forefront.

Idolatry at the Office: Confessions of a Workaholic

More importantly, our work does not please God when we labor for people’s applause. The trappings of worldly accomplishments may swell our pride, but when we pursue them to inflate our own egos, they are like filthy rags to the one who made heaven and earth (Isaiah 64:6). Only when we abide in Christ do we accomplish anything that honors God, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). However noble our efforts may appear to the world, we labor in vain when we strive apart from God (Psalm 127:1–2).

A 7-Point Biblical Theology of Mission - Westminster Theological Seminary

When Jesus is born, Simeon announces that salvation has dawned for Jew and Gentile (Luke 2:27–32). In his early ministry, Jesus anticipates this in his interactions with Nicodemus, a Jew, a Samaritan woman, and various Gentiles with whom he comes into contact (e.g. John 3–4). However, up until his death and resurrection, Jesus’ ministry is primarily focused on Israel and not the Gentiles. When he commissions his own disciples for their mission, he tells them to avoid the Gentiles and Samaritans and instead to go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matt. 10:5). When he meets a Canaanite woman in the district of Tyre and Sidon (beyond the Promised Land), who asks him to cast out a demon from her daughter, he repeats the point that he was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matt. 15:24). Only after he has inaugurated the new covenant of grace in his death and resurrection does Jesus encourage the shift in mission from centripetal to centrifugal. As the Father sent him, so now his disciples are sent (John 20:21); as the Father has given him all authority in heaven and earth, so now he commands his disciples to go and disciple the nations (Matt.

Why Did God Write A Book?

I am not a concordist. I am an accommodationist. I believe God did not intend to teach the Israelites Cosmology. In fact, the more I think about the idea of God conveying absolutely perfect scientific information in scripture, the less sense it actually makes. Here’s why I say it doesn’t make sense. I go back to that one question: “Why did God decide to write a book?” Was God really interested in teaching the ancient Israelites how the cosmos functioned? Was that really on His list of priorities? Did it matter to him whether they believed the Earth is a sphere or is flat? Did it matter to Him whether or not they believed the sky was solid? What was God’s purpose for writing a book? I think 3 reasons given above make perfect sense, but it makes no sense to think teaching them accurate cosmology and physiology was even on His to-do list.

The Faith-Work Gap for Professional Women

For a movement as complex as evangelicalism, the reasons for these findings are likewise complex. Unlike other surveyors, Barna identifies evangelicals by adherence to nine theological criteria rather than church attendance or survey participants’ self-identification as evangelical. Among Barna’s criteria is “a strong belief that the Bible is accurate in all the principles it teaches.” Many evangelicals believe that Scripture forbids women from having authority over men in the home (Eph. 5:22–24) and the church (1 Tim. 2:11–12). This certainly informs church leadership; according to Barna, evangelicals were the group least likely to be accepting of a female pastor (39%). But Roxanne Stone, editor in chief at Barna, notes that evangelicals’ “view of leadership within the church is expanded into their view of societal leadership more broadly.” So while the Bible doesn’t forbid women from leadership in society—and might actually encourage it, given the examples of Deborah, Esther, and the Proverbs 31 woman—their beliefs about women leaders in the church color their perception of all women leaders.

Is Christianity a crutch?

I have lost count of how many times I have heard that Christianity is a crutch for weak-minded people who cannot make it in life without faith. That may be, but we are not the only ones who need to lean on something. Do you know how many people use alcohol and drugs as a “crutch” to get them through life, or how many cannot walk into a room without clutching onto a cigarette? According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, over 22 million Americans are addicted to drug abuse and alcohol. Those sorts of crutches tend to snap and leave the patient in a worse state.
