How the Standard of Proof Helped a Skeptic Become a Christian

J. Warner Wallace is interviewed by Lee Strobel and describes some of his journey from skepticism to faith. Can a proper understanding of the “standard of proof” help someone overcome their skepticism?

Thank God, We Have the Meats

For a millennium and a half, God’s covenant people on earth saw his created world in categories of clean and unclean, holy and common. God was showing the separation between his holiness and humanity’s sin, and preparing the way for his Son. He had something to teach us that was drastically more important than the freedom to eat all animals. Then in the fullness of time, God sent his own Son, born under that first covenant (Galatians 4:4), and with the coming of history’s apex, and the new covenant, Jesus himself, shocking as it would have been at the time, “declared all foods clean.”

5 moves to integrate theology into your ministry — Southern Equip

If you want a church to be saturated with truth, then stay there and walk through life with them. It takes time to lay the foundation, and more time to build the superstructure. Plant your life. Show them what a gospel-centered marriage and family looks like. Preach the Word — both testaments, law and gospel, all genres, creation, fall, longing, fulfillment, consummation. They won’t get that strategic grasp of the scriptures from six consecutive pastors, but they might from one who stays and lives life in community with them.

Why "Closure" Requires A Christian Worldview | Cold Case Christianity

But if the Christian worldview is true, a day is coming when all the evil committed in this world will be reversed. All losses will be returned. All pain will be abolished. For those of us who have accepted the pardon offered by God through Jesus Christ, we will someday be reunited with those we miss today. The heavenly realm of God lacks pain, suffering, regret, or frustration. The justice and mercy of God reign in perfect balance: all wrongs are righted, all questions are answered, all doubt is removed, and all joy is returned. If Christianity is true, this often painful mortal experience will draw to a close, once and for all. We will experience justice and closure.

11 Stats That Will Change the Way You Think About Consumerism

How is the person writing this not including himself in the problem? Does he have the right amount of awareness and disgust to count himself out? The author says “look at all these consumers, so terrible.” but just living in the US means that he is a contributor to the “problem”. What exactly is the point of this article? This is slacktivism folks. Chances are high that this was written on an Apple computer in America. What exactly is the proposed solution to this problem, and don’t say awareness, that doesn’t really solve anything by itself.

Apologetics in Service of the Gospel

How are apologetics and evangelism related, then? When it comes to outreach, apologetics is not, in my view, necessary for evangelism, but it is often incredibly helpful. Apologetics is often characterized as pre-evangelism. Sometimes, hearing a straightforward Gospel message is all some people need. Other times, people must journey a long road in order to arrive at a place where they surrender to Christ in faith. On this road, there are often questions of an apologetic nature, some of which can be quite pressing. These questions often act as a kind of intellectual roadblock for faith. And, for many, these questions require a thoughtful answer…

10 Creation Essentials: Old Earth or Young Earth?

I frequently hear OEC critique YEC for not being scientific. They sometimes completely ignore scientific discoveries in order to keep their YE perspective. But also, YEC criticize OEC for compromising scripture. It is said that only YEC preserve biblical authority. It is also believed by some that if you accept an old universe then you also accept darwinian evolution. For that reason, we should stick to YEC. What about death before the fall? What about radiometric dating? There seem to be so many objections and points of disagreement between the two sides.

God answers our prayers immediately, but sometimes there’s a delay in the giving of the gift. Why? Because he wants to change us first. God is more interested in making you mature than he is in making life easy. After you’ve learned the right attitude, then God’s free to go to work on the problem.

I Thank God for My Doubts: A Personal Reflection

Second, and perhaps most important, my doubts drive me to rest in God’s grace rather than my own understanding. When doubts plague me, and I can’t resolve something in my mind, I am driven to God for his mercy. Jude 1:22 says to "have mercy on those who doubt." And I often think of the powerful words spoken by the Apostle Paul, when he reflected on his own weakness: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Cor. 12:9).

Cold-Case Christianity for Kids by J. Warner and Susie Wallace

Children between 8 and 12 are at the critical age when they start to ask if Christianity is true. Cold-case detective J. Warner Wallace knows the thrill of high-stakes investigation and presents the case for Jesus in a compelling way while training kids “how to think, not just what to think” as they examine their faith intelligently.

Strong Women Laugh at the Days to Come

But we also live in a feminist, follow-your-dreams, do-it-yourself culture, which tells us to conquer weakness and pursue the ideal, all while relying on the fictitious power of self. And though we as Christian women may reject these worldly concepts, they can all too easily creep into our thoughts when we find ourselves in fear-provoking, happiness-interrupting circumstances.

Why Francis Schaeffer Matters: The Church in Culture

Francis Schaeffer’s view of the church in modern culture is multifaceted yet cuts straight to the point.  He does not mince words or play clever evangelical games.  He believes one major problem with Christians is that they see things in bits and pieces.  They have failed to see that modern man’s despair has come to fruition because of a shift in worldview.  He contends that Christians should begin to think in terms of the big picture.  They should have a view of spiritual reality that is authentic and covers all areas of life.  Indeed, the Lordship of Christ covers all life and all life equally.

Kirk Cousins Is More than Just a Nice Guy

By all accounts, Kirk Cousins is a  nice guy . He compliments safeties and linebackers after they hit him. He apologizes to his offensive linemen for taking too long to get the ball out, and compliments them for securing the pocket for so long, despite his indecisiveness. He keeps the names and photos of local media members in his locker—not to memorialize a record of wrongs, but so that he’ll  remember their names  when he sees them. It’s true: Cousins is a nice guy. But that’s not the whole story. Cousins’ Family If kindness were hereditary, Cousins would’ve been very fortunate. His dad, Don Cousins, has been in the ministry for more than four decades, a career that began in November 1975 when Bill Hybels recruited him for the planting of Willow Creek Community Church near Chicago. But before long, the Cousins family moved to Holland, Michigan, and young Kirk realized his family’s faith needed to become his own. “The Christian middle and high school I went to in Michigan really challenged me,” Cousins told me in a phone interview last week. “I learned that I needed to go from being a ‘Christian’ because I was raised as one to being a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ, to follow Jesus with all my heart.

We Are All Eleventh-Hour Laborers

Chapter divisions in the Bible are usually helpful as they allow us to find our way around the Scriptures. Occasionally, however, they can hinder our understanding of a passage if they cause us to look at it apart from its context. This often is the case with the parable of the laborers in the vineyard (Matt. 20:1–16). Because of the chapter division at the end of Matthew 19, we fail to understand the parable in its context of Jesus’ teaching in 19:16–30.

Single Is Never Second Best: Enjoying God’s Gift at Midlife

The best privilege of being single is far and away the enhanced opportunity for discipleship and serving Jesus. This, more than anything else — including marriage — is how God remedies loneliness. And there is a satisfaction that comes from living out these unique advantages that our married brothers and sisters can’t fully know. If we are willing — if we trust God — we will surely experience the value and rewards of singleness.

Your Students Are Much Less Concerned About Safety Than You Are | Cold Case Christianity

My wife and I homeschooled our kids prior to sending them to High School (OK, to be fair, Susie did most of the teaching and training). We absolutely loved the experience and have recommended it to others. Even back then (it’s been a few years since our kids were home with us) we recognized the explosive growth of homeschooling here in California. We met lots of parents along the way, and most of them were Christians. Believers often lean toward homeschooling because they are concerned about the direction of the culture and want to protect their kids from the dangers they see growing around them. For many Christian homeschooling parents, the primary motivation is simply a concern for safety. But while Susie and I were also aware of the growing hostility to our values as Christians, neither of us wanted to homeschool for this reason. Maybe it’s because both of us were non-Christians as kids and were educated entirely in the public school system (even through our college years). Maybe it was simply because we were realists about the exposure our kids would eventually have:

Does Hebrews Tell Us to “Grow Up” Beyond the Gospel?

If I’m looking at the schedule right, this episode launches on the evening of Thanksgiving, so Happy Thanksgiving evening! I hope your day was full of great fellowship and good food. Now we can push through the tryptophan haze together, and we can do it while talking about the solid meat of sound doctrine. It’s a question that comes to us from Derek. “Hello, Pastor John, thank you for the podcast and for answering very hard Bible questions. Here’s mine. Is there an ideal mark of doctrinal maturity to reach in the Christian life, that once a person has gotten settled on the basics of Christ’s life and work, his death and resurrection, and the future of his return, then moves on from these foundational doctrines — leaving them behind, so to speak — and not returning to them and rethinking them over and over through the years? In other words, how do you interpret Hebrews 6:1–3?”

Six Ways Christians Can Respond to the Growing Police Dilemma | Cold Case Christianity

2. Love the other side because there is no “other side”. At the police memorial in Dallas last Tuesday, President Obama said , “Faced with this violence we wonder if the divides of race in America can ever be bridged. We wonder if an African-American community that feels unfairly targeted by police and police departments that feel unfairly maligned for doing their jobs can ever understand each other’s experience.” One way to bridge the divide is to remember that what we have in common far exceeds what separates us . As Christians, we should know this better than anyone. Each of us, regardless of race, has at least three important things in common. First, we are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). Second, we are deeply rebellious and lost in our sin nature (Romans 3:23, 1 John 1:8). Finally, every one of us is desperately in need of a Savior (Ephesians 2:1-7). Regardless of any other differences we may have, these three foundational truths are common to all of us. I bet you’re a lot different than many members of your own family, but somehow you manage to come together on holidays and get along.
