Abbreviated Christianity and Christian Case Making

At some point in my life about 18 years ago, I decided to surrender my presuppositions and follow the evidence where it led. It didn’t happen in a day, but over a period of months as I slowly investigated the claims of the gospel writers. I eventually came to call myself a “Christian”. But the process that brought me into the Christian family of believers, the methodical investigation of the evidence, soon became a part of my life as a believer. It wasn’t long before I found myself sharing what I learned with the people in my world. I retraced my own investigative steps for anyone who would sit still long enough to listen. I think I drove my atheist friends crazy with this behavior; they had known me as a vocal (and rather angry) skeptic for many years. I’m sure I also tested the patience of my wife; the Christian evidences were all I talked about for many years. It wasn’t enough that I was now a Christian after 35 years of unbelief. I was determined to defend what I believed and share the evidence with others. I was becoming a “Christian Case Maker”.

Theologian R.C. Sproul on Christmas

"I can’t think of anything more pleasing to Christ than the church celebrating His birthday every year. Keep in mind that the whole principle of annual festival and celebration is deeply rooted in ancient Jewish tradition. In the Old Testament, for example, there were times when God emphatically commanded the people to remember certain events with annual celebrations. While the New Testament doesn’t require that we celebrate Christmas every year, I certainly see nothing wrong with the church’s entering into this joyous time of celebrating the Incarnation, which is the dividing point of all human history. Originally, it was intended to honor, not Mithras or any of the other mystery religion cults, but the birth of our King." 1 Courage and Godspeed, Chad Footnote: 1. R.C. Sproul, "Is Christmas a Pagan Holiday?", Dec. 23th, 2016. Related Posts Christmas Resources from GotQuestions.org A Christmas Testimony by Chad Vaughn  Everyone Believes in a Virgin Birth

Teaching Apologetics to the Next Generation

Before becoming a graduate professor of apologetics last year, I spent a decade teaching apologetics full time to high school students at a Christian school in Southern California. In fact, I still teach one high school Bible class simply because I love it ! I also have the privilege of speaking to thousands of young people each year on all sorts of apologetics-related subjects. There are some lessons I have learned—many the hard way—about how to teach apologetics to young people. I trust these will be helpful and encouraging as you aim to equip and challenge the next generation.

How Apologetics Builds a Tougher Faith

Question: would you rather find out the roof over your head was ready to collapse before it actually happened, or after? Afterward doesn’t really help, does it? Now, a question for the Christians out there: would you rather find out where your trust in God is weak before it gets put to the test, or afterward? Maybe for some of you, if you were honest, you might say, “I claim I trust that God is good, and that He is sovereign… but if I ever got cancer, or my child died, or something bad happened on a massive scale (like a tsunami), my trust in God would be destroyed.” Honesty is good; it’s hard to fix a problem if we ignore it or gloss over it. But would your sudden distrust in God, or even a change to disbelief in His very existence, change anything about Him? If He exists and is truly good, and omnipotent, and omniscient, and sovereign, would your changing belief about Him change anything about Him, or just about you? Just you, obviously. Someone can not believe I’m an engineer all they want, and it does nothing to my credentials or occupation. Likewise, God is independent of our changing views of Him.

5 Life-lessons for Apologists from Martin Luther King, Jr.

Before the victory of brother is achieved, some will maybe face physical death, but we shall overcome. Before the victory is won, some will lose jobs, some will be called communists, and reds, merely because they believe in brotherhood, some will be dismissed as dangerous rabble-rousers and agitators merely because they’re standing up for what is right, but we shall overcome.

12 Jesus Valued Evidence and So Should You

When John the Baptist was in prison (Matt.11:2), he sent two of disciples to ask Jesus, "Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?"  In other words, "Are you the Messiah?" Before we look at how Jesus did answer, consider what he didn't say: "Tell John he just needs to believe because I said so." "Tell John that he needs to have more faith." "Shame on John for asking questions." Jesus answered as follows: "Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them." (Matt. 11:4) In other words, Jesus was saying, "Tell John to look at the evidence." Is this true of us?  When people ask us questions about our Christian convictions are we able to "make a defense" (1 Peter 3:15) or do you simply tell them to have more faith or believe because the Bible says so? Jesus valued evidence; therefore, so should we His followers. Courage and Godspeed, Chad

Biblical Persuasion: The Heart of Evangelistic Apologetics

As I have studied apologetics over the years I have noticed that the word “persuasion” comes up much more regularly than what I have been use to throughout my church and educational experience. I have been to countless evangelism events, conferences and training sessions over the years, but I cannot recall a single sermon, lesson or resource on the biblical concept of persuasion.

In a Radio Debate on Theistic Evolution, Stephen Meyer Meets Deborah Haarsma of BioLogos | Evolution News

What shall I say? The encounter is substantive and interesting. I would not want to be saddled with the responsibility of defending the theistic evolutionary perspective in a debate with Dr. Meyer. Hosted by Julie Roys for Moody Radio, Haarsma does, I think, a creditable job in what is probably an impossible task. She has a difficult time trying to persuade Ms. Roys or the callers to the show. You can tell that from the host’s voice, and at the end, Roys simply opens up and frankly says she doesn’t see much difference between theistic and “deistic” evolution.

U2’s Unfashionably Hopeful Songs of Experience | Think Christian

On the opening track, “Love Is All That We Have Left,” Bono’s vocal is both intimate and artificial. Producer Andy Barlow runs his voice through a vocoder/synth processor, with which the famously imperfect lead vocalist then sings a sort of sad duet. It’s hard not to hear 1 Corinthians 13:13 , making for a stark and powerful introduction to the rest of the album. If, at the end of things, all we have left is faith, hope, and love, then we had better figure out what those things mean. Love is our only hope. It’s a cliche, sure, but like my grandpa’s sayings, that doesn’t mean it’s not true.

Is God Calling Me to Be a Pastor?

Here the desires of the heart meet the brass tacks of the needs of others. Office in the church is not for spiritual self-actualization or merely affirming a man’s spiritual maturity, but it’s for meeting the actual needs of others. The elder qualifications are, in a sense, unremarkable. The elders of the church should not be the sum total of all spiritually qualified men in the church. Rather, from among those who are qualified, the elders are those who are willing to make extra sacrifices (for a season or the long haul) to care for the church and meet her needs. Aspiration has its vital part to play, but the call to pastoral office is not shaped mainly by the internal heart, but by external needs.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

How Jesus Makes a Woman Bold

Christian women, we have nothing to fear and ultimately nothing to lose. We will inherit our glorious hope. We will get Christ. He will reward us for our good works. Let’s not be conformed to the world in its apathy toward the things of God. Let’s live like we have the greatest hope to offer the world. Let’s get uncomfortable by hoping in God and not in what the world offers. Let’s take risks for the sake of the gospel to the glory of God.

Does Christian Apologetics Compete with the Holy Spirit?

I’ve been involved with Christian apologetics since 2005; it’s one of the catalysts for my conviction in the Christian faith. I know how it influenced me personally and so, I know how valuable it can be. While I was an agnostic, I read dozens of books and my heart was convicted of the truth of the Christian worldview. This is why I’m often saddened and confused when I see or hear Christians disparage Christian apologetics. To be frank, I don’t understand any of the objections I’ve seen leveraged against Christian apologetics.

Resurrection iWitness - Kindle edition by Doug Powell. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

Excellent book by Doug Powell. He did a wonderful job combining solid, thoughtful, reasonable apologetics with fun and compelling graphics to make this book an adventurous page-turner! It has an Indiana Jones-like quality in that you must explore every photo, flap, map, chart, etc to fully understand the claims on each page. But you don't get too bogged down in the details, because they are clear, brief and to the point. I'd recommend this book for anyone interested in exploring the truth claims of Christianity - from skeptic to believer, student to theologian. A must have for your coffee table! I am sincerely looking forward to the next installment!

Understanding the Faith: A Survey of Christian Apologetics (Understanding the Times) - Kindle edition by Jeff Myers. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

I am a big fan of Summit Ministries. I got this book right after it came out, which nicely coincided with when I finished the new version of "understanding the times" as well. The book does a great job of introducing apologetics in terms of its thorough references to important arguments and questions, the necessity of apologetics in today's social and philosophical climate, and the importance of each believer being able to articulate, communicate and demonstrate why he or she holds a biblical worldview. As someone who came to faith in Jesus after being an atheist for a number of years, I've found apologetics to be very helpful to me and to the way I engage those around me when it comes to traversing intellectual issues and modern obstacles to the faith. I'm indebted to this ministry and I've gotten a lot out of this book and their other materials - readers considering buying the book will be making a good investment.

The Task of Apologetics

Exodus 3 narrates the well-known account of God’s revealing Himself to Moses in the burning bush and commissioning him to tell Pharaoh to release the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. But that was only part of Moses’ mission. The other task to which the Lord called Moses was to address the Israelites. He was to command the Israelites in the name of God to engage in the largest strike in history. In absolute defiance of the power and authority of Pharaoh, they were to leave Egypt and go out to the desert to worship God at His mountain. And, of course, these events ended in the exodus.

Top 5 rookie pastor mistakes — Southern Equip

Though it may seem counterintuitive, the best strategy for any pastor assuming a new ministry is to lower expectations of the church but raise expectations of himself. In other words, instead of having a list of things the church must do, he should have a list of actions he must take. His efforts should focus on preaching well, loving his people, winning the lost, visiting people in their jobs and homes, and inviting members into his. People will more readily follow a man who works hard and loves them. There is no shortcut to credibility, but there is a direct route.

Stop Apologizing for God

He is not like us, and assuming he should be like us discloses our terrible ignorance (Psalm 50:21). “We are tempted to project our humanity onto God,” Dyck explained in a recent interview. “We assume that God’s wrath is akin to us throwing a childish fit. Of course, God’s wrath, as explained in the Bible, is a perfect and holy wrath, different from our sinful anger as night is from day. So when God kills someone in the Bible, we can’t accept that, because we imagine how wrong it would be for us to kill someone. But we fail to account for the fact that God has every right to take a life, because he gave it in the first place. As a culture we work hard to establish parity, equality among people, and that is very good, but then we project that toward the heavens and say: God, you have to play by the same rules we do.”
