Forensic Faith Preview (Video) | Cold Case Christianity

In J. Warner's first two books, he made the case for God's existence (God's Crime Scene) and the case for Christianity (Cold-Case Christianity). In Forensic Faith, J. Warner completes the trilogy by making the case for… making the case! In Forensic Faith, J. Warner helps readers understand why it's important to defend what they believe, and provides them with a unique template to help them become effective "Christian Case Makers". Forensic Faith will help readers (1) Understand why they, as Christians, have a duty to defend the truth, (2) Develop a training strategy to master the evidence for Christianity, (3) Learn how to employ the techniques of a detective to discover new insights from God's Word, and (4) Become a better communicators by learning the skills of professional case makers.

Who Does God Love Most?

God must love whatever is most valuable in the universe — otherwise, he’d be an idolater.

Why Are Christians So Defensive?

How can I claim that Christians are so insecure? For the past decade, I have been role-playing an atheist at camps, conferences, churches, and other Christian events. I have done this in youth groups of ten students and in stadiums up to six thousand people. And I have done my role-play with parents, youth pastors, businessmen, and a variety of other groups from a myriad of denominations. During the presentation, I put on my “atheist glasses,” do my best to make the case for atheism, and then have two volunteers take microphones out into the audience so people can raise questions and challenges. People typically ask questions about morality, the origin of the universe, and evolution. And I simply respond back with the answers many of my atheist friends have given me.

Begin to Hope Again

But the hope at the heart of reality does guarantee something: change is not only possible, but surely coming. Jesus’s empty tomb stands as a solid, immovable witness that brokenness is beaten. With the God of hope running the world, the risen Christ at his right hand, and their mighty Spirit living inside you, no brokenness can stand forever. One day, our hope will reach its fulfillment in the coming of the Son and the dawning of eternity, and he will speak the final word that exiles brokenness from the earth. No more splintered countries, no more icy marriages, no more floundering ministries, no more depressed saints.

Evolving Icons of Evolution

Peter and Rosemary Grant, the husband and wife pair from Princeton University, have spent 40 years studying four species of ground finch on one uninhabited island of the Galápagos archipelago. They are to be commended for their dedication, and for details that they have published over the years about the birds made famous by Darwin. (Design advocates appreciate the Grants for their findings that undermine neo-Darwinism , although they would not see it that way.)

Faith and Reason: Better Together in a Christian Worldview

Have you ever misplaced your trust in something or someone? Maybe even yourself? I remember when I bought my first motorcycle. I had never ridden a motorcycle before and yet trusted myself that I could figure it out. You could say I had faith I could do it. My friends and I picked it up using a van and took it to my house. We unloaded it and walked it into the street and pointed it straight. I jumped on it, strapped on my helmet, and fired it up! A flick of the wrist and I was off. On one wheel. Only by the grace of God, the bike didn’t flip back on me as I rocketed down the street. My street had a boulevard and was fairly busy. As I approached the stop sign, well over the speed limit mind you, I didn’t stop or turn and just went down the opposite side of the road. I don’t think my friends stopped laughing for a couple of days. I walked away with only a bruised ego. My faith in my ability to just ride a motorcycle was unreasonable; I had no real evidence to believe I could do it, or at least do it safely. Imagine that I had taken motorcycle lessons beforehand or had grown up learning to ride motorcycles.

Does an Objective Moral Compass Point to God?

Here is where I think Wielenberg has a good point. We as theists seem to hold to the existence of God as being a necessary, substantive, and brute fact. When he says that theists hold to the existence of God as being an example of this kind of fact, he is speaking in an ontological sense, not an epistemological one. Certainly we can come to know the fact that God exists through explanations and other facts, but the truth of the fact of God’s existence is not dependent on other facts, thus making it a brute fact. So why does Wielenberg point this out? Well, his argumentative purpose in pointing to types of brute facts to which theists are committed is to show that the theist cannot consistently reject his (that is, Wielenberg’s) proposed means of accommodating objective morality in an atheistic worldview simply by rejecting the tenability of the existence of brute facts. With this in mind, Wielenberg sees no guiding principle as to which facts are brute and which ones require further explanation. They need to be examined on a case-by-case basis. If we accept his analysis of brute facts as correct, then it seems we need to give some sort of reason as to why ethical facts are facts in need of further explanation and cannot be considered brute.

The Necessity of Effectively Communicating to Children

Like many, I have watched my fair share of films over the years, and the vast majority have been quite forgettable. There are a small number that I enjoyed enough to purchase in order to watch them again. But there are very, very few that were so powerful in one way or another that they have stayed with me years after seeing them.

The Importance of Training to Recognize Enthymemes

The search for the tacit premise is excellent intellectual training . . . [for] most arguments are enthymemes, because almost all arguments entail unexpressed premises or assumptions. And in this broader sense the habit of searching for the tacit assumptions which are the silent determinants of one's htoughts takes on an extremely important aspect; it should be consciously cultivated.

You get the impression there was a sarcastic tone in PiIate’s question here, and it is interesting to note that “the truth” was standing right in front of him!

How Do I Motivate Students Who Don't Seem to Care?

Have a long-term perspective . Often times youth leaders beat themselves up for “failing” to motivate certain students. But here’s the reality: there may be nothing you can do to motivate certain students whose hearts are not open to spiritual things . I had a student who graduated from my class who went to the local JC. His goal in my class was to get the minimal passing grade (If I remember correctly, he got a C-). And yet the year after graduation he came back to sit in my class and to encourage other students to pay attention. Why? He was challenged in his faith by professors and started taking his beliefs more seriously than ever. I asked him what I could have done differently to motivate him in high school, and I will never forget what he said: “Nothing. I wasn’t ready spiritually. But I did learn more than you probably realized.” Even if a student seems apathetic, you might be surprised how much he or she is actually learning. Don’t give up!

Why Christian Discipleship is Critical to Christian Survival | Cold Case Christianity

Just before leaving the disciples, Jesus gathered them together and commissioned them with an important task. He told them, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you …” (Matthew 28:18-20). Jesus understood the importance of discipleship (the process of making disciples). In fact, it was so important, He made sure it was His last directive to those who followed Him. What precisely is discipleship and why is it so important? Is it simply a matter of making converts? No, it’s much more. The process of making disciples is often misunderstood and neglected in the Church today, and as a result, we are in danger of losing our identity as Christians. Christian discipleship is critical to Christian survival.

I believe deeply that "all truth is God’s truth." That historic affirmation means that when we discover and grasp truth in the world and in life we move closer to its divine Author. This approach relies on the Christian idea of God’s two revelatory books - the metaphorical book of nature and the literal book of Scripture. As an RTB scholar I have a great passion to help people understand and see the truth and relevance of Christianity's truth-claims. My writings and lectures at RTB focus on showing how the great doctrinal truths of the faith (the Trinity, the Incarnation, the Atonement, creation ex nihilo, salvation by grace, etc.) are uniquely compatible with reason. This approach reflects the historic Christian apologetics statement - "faith seeking understanding." I work to help myself and others fulfill Peter's words in 2 Peter 3:18: "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen." As an RTB scholar I have a great passion to help people understand and see the truth and relevance of Christianity's truth-claims. • Biography • Resources • Upcoming Events • Promotional Items Kenneth Richard Samples began voraciously studying Christian philosophy and theology when his thirst for purpose found relief in the Bible.

Is Biblical faith 'blind faith'?

The choice to put the question to both Christians and Non-Christians was strategic—if Christians disagreed with Boghossian, then it would be sufficient to establish that Boghossian was wrong about what Christians mean. But if Non-Christians agreed with Boghossian, it would do more: it would also imply that non-believers at large were perpetuating a myth about what Christians mean. And sure enough, this is exactly what was established…

The Top Ten Scientific Problems with Biological and Chemical Evolution | Center for Science and Culture

Biogeography is the study of the distribution of organisms in time and space both in the present and past on Earth. It is often contended that biogeography strongly supports neo-Darwinian theory. For example, the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), a pro-Darwin advocacy group, claims that "consistency between biogeographic and evolutionary patterns provides important evidence about the continuity of the processes driving the evolution and diversification of all life," and "[t]his continuity is what would be expected of a pattern of common descent." However, the NCSE dramatically overstates its case and ignores the many instances where biogeography does not show the sort of "continuity" that would be expected under a pattern of common descent.

Dear Cinderella Mamas

If you are at home, and serving your husband and your children doesn’t fulfill you, perhaps it’s because you’re expecting them to fulfill the insatiable yearning that will only be satisfied in heaven. If that’s the case, then nothing will be enough, regardless of whether you are at home with a supportive and affirming husband, or in the workplace receiving accolades. You’ll be discontent with your children, no matter how obedient they are. You’ll be discontent with your business growth, no matter how booming it is. If your fulfillment source is misplaced, you’ll be discontent either way. And this place of discontentment will tempt you to make reactive, self-centered decisions.

Are Single Years a Gift from God?

Many of us have adopted a view of singleness and marriage that is not God’s. When it seems like those around us treat the single years as a waiting room for marriage, and when we ourselves feel them as a curse, God himself still calls them a gift. So the most important question God asks his discontent single children is simply this: “Do you trust me?”

Hidden Benefits of a Church-Based Apologetics Ministry

"Apologetics? What are you apologizing for?", "Is that a class that husbands are supposed to take?", "What is that?" These are questions I hear frequently whenever I mention the study of apologetics. It probably comes as no surprise the word "apologetics" is foreign to most people, not only the general public but also those who are a part of the Christian church. Even evangelicals, who define themselves by their passion to follow Jesus' command to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations"(Matt. 28:17) usually look quizzically at me whenever I begin discussing the need for apologetics, even though apologetics is an essential part of making disciples. Why would this be?

Must Moms Only Be Moms?

To be a mother is no small thing. The calling to invest intentionally and consistently in the lives of your little ones cannot be set aside if God has given you children. Still, what motherhood will look like for every mom is unique, because Christ does not call anyone — including moms — to one cookie-cutter model.

What’s a Christian to Do with Statements and Confessions?

Of course his ultimate identity is in Christ. But alcoholism gives alcoholics deep insights into themselves and others like them, not to mention into the mercy and goodness of God—so much so, they can say their alcoholism is a “gift.” They don’t mean this literally because that would make God the author of evil. Instead, they are speaking with Paul when he revels in his weakness, for his thorn in the flesh was, in fact, the means by which he had a deeper experience of God’s grace (1 Cor. 12).
