Mike Licona has a Ph.D. in New Testament Studies (University of Pretoria), and serves as associate professor in theology at Houston Baptist University. He became a Christian at the age of 10, grew up in a Christian home, had a strong desire to know God, devoting himself to studying the Bible daily. As he neared the completion of his graduate work, Mike began to question the veracity of his faith and wondered if there was any evidence to support it. Finding answers to his questions consumed him and he almost jettisoned his faith. He investigated the evidence for Christianity and a number of other major world religions. He also considered the arguments for atheism. His investigation solidified his belief that God exists and that he has actually revealed himself to mankind in Jesus Christ and that the Christian view provides the most plausible and unified theory of reality. He has authored numerous books, spoken on over 90 university campuses, and appeared on dozens of radio and television programs.

The Bible’s Clarity Should Be Evident in Our Lives

I read and re-read the Gospels, and then the whole New Testament. I was without instruction in almost any of the historical, cultural, political, or theological issues of the text. I was by no means sure there was a god, nor was I sure that this text and its apparent claims were true or relevant to some possible divine being. It simply seemed to me that a literate person should be acquainted with the Bible, and so it all began.

4 Reasons Friends with Benefits Is a Really Bad Idea

I think it's like playing relationship Russian roulette, just because you have a chance of one to five it does not mean it is a good idea overall. Human diversity (and are we diverse nowadays!) entails that it will "work" for some, but not necessarilly for everyone. I have been into such a relationship, tried to play it cool, enjoyed the company and connection, but it just did not work for the reasons mentioned above, they describe quite accurately my experience. Six months of drained energy, focus, productivity, emotions.

My Response to the Dishonest Atheist Critics of My Book (First Things) | Larry Alex Taunton

O n December 15, 2011, Christopher Hitchens died of esophageal cancer. Some remember him as a man of the left who, after 9/11, converted to a kind of neoconservatism; others remember him as an atheist provocateur and serial blasphemer. For me, Christopher Hitchens was much more than either of these things. He was, as he put it, my “debate partner” and friend. This relationship, largely hidden from view, was a surprise to no one more than me. I am, after all, an Evangelical Christian. Even so, after his diagnosis of cancer in 2010, it was my privilege to take two lengthy road trips with the celebrated atheist. The first was from his home in Washington, D.C., to mine in Birmingham, Alabama. The second was through Yellowstone National Park. In both instances, we studied the Bible together and discussed the Great Questions. This relationship is the subject of my recent book The Faith of Christopher Hitchens: The Restless Soul of the World’s Most Notorious Atheist.

There website is Women in Apologetics .

Atheists: Thor is not a Rational Substitute for God

Yesterday, I responded to a common atheist claim that one cannot prove a universal negative. But can one really prove that something does not exist, especially when that thing is mystical or other-worldly? For example, one atheist responded to the idea that a personal God was the best explanation for the beginning of the universe with "I think Thor is the best explanation. My claim isn't falsifiable." He seems to think that by invoking the name of a Norse god instead of the Christian God he has made an equally valid claim, but he hasn't. Of course the claim that Thor is responsible for the creation of the universe is falsifiable. Let's see how.

Pride Is Poisoning Your Happiness

The gospel reminds us that it took the Son of God dying in our place in order to save us from sin, death, and hell. The god of self is weak god, unable even to save itself from destruction. It’s difficult to be prideful when the gospel tells us that we are sinful and wicked, even from birth (Psalm 51:5). Pride is insanity for those who know that they are unable to save themselves and must be helped by another.

Is Jesus Knocking at the Heart of the Unbeliever?

We have all heard evangelists quote from Revelation: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Rev. 3:20). Usually the evangelist applies this text as an appeal to the unconverted, saying: “Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart. If you open the door, then He will come in.” In the original saying, however, Jesus directed His remarks to the church. It was not an evangelistic appeal.

Farewell to TV’s Most Powerful Single Ladies

However, a comparative analysis of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Girls does more than illustrate feminism’s impact on primetime. When reading it as a story of contrasting approaches, we encounter a larger question: What tactics for shaping—or as Christians often say, “engaging”—culture have the most impact? In a moment when so little is civil in our civil discourse and polarization is the theme of each morning’s front page, a look over our collective shoulders suggests that a “culture war” footing rooted in bold confrontation (more in line with Dunham’s approach) has rarely been as effective as a patient, steady charm offensive (à la Moore).

The Earliness of the Resurrection Belief (1 Cor. 15)

Arguably the most important line of evidence pertaining to the earliness of the proclamation of a risen Jesus comes from one of Paul’s epistles in a very early tradition cited in 1 Corinthians 15: 3-8. This creed implies the fact of the empty tomb, which in turn implies that the earliest Christian belief was that Jesus was raised from the dead. Paul writes that Jesus “was buried and that he was raised.”

The Briefing 02-10-17 - AlbertMohler.com

Now we should be clear that from a Christian biblical worldview perspective, this is a really interesting article, because it gets to the larger issue I referenced with the previous story. We’re looking at a moral shift in this culture that represents the crossing and transgressing of certain boundaries. Christians understand that language matters. It always matters because language is not merely communicative, it is representational. When we use certain words, we use them not only so that they will be heard a certain way, but we use them because they are at times even performative. We want words to do things. Using curse language is a way of trying to exaggerate the importance of the urgency of what someone says. It’s an attempt to try to blow up a conversation in terms of using that kind forbidden language. The use of that language absolutely demands attention, whether that attention is what is desired or not. But make no mistake; the person using that kind of language is looking for attention.

"Leftist Anarchy, not Fascism, is the Real Threat to Democracy" (The American Spectator) | Larry Alex Taunton

At this moment, I am on assignment in Europe, a continent that, like America, seems more screwed-up with every visit. To escape the insanity that threatens to engulf us all, this morning I decided to work remotely from a small French town. Hammering away on my laptop, I sat down to enjoy a nice breakfast in a quaint little café. The coffee was good. So were the bacon and eggs. Fearing I would miss a critical news event — you know, like, say, the ransacking of a California university by students deeply concerned with the ideals of democracy — I put in my earbuds and listened to BBC Radio.

Justified by Faith Alone

Faith alone is the foundational answer to the question, “What must I do to be saved?” The doctrine of justification by faith alone is at the center of Reformation theology, and remains critical for all believers today. This doctrine is continually under assault, yet without it, there is no gospel. In this lecture series, Dr. Sproul explores the doctrine of justification historically and theologically. He carefully defines each term in the phrase “justification by faith alone” while pointing to the imputation of a perfect righteousness found only in Jesus Christ.

Why an incredible new discovery proves that the Dead Sea Scrolls belong to Israel

Our friend and colleague, Cary Summers , president of the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. which will open later this year, was volunteering at the dig site for this historic discovery in January of 2017, where no less than six Scroll jars were discovered in what is now being called “the twelfth Qumran cave.” The discovery and publication of the Dead Sea Scrolls historically is part of a continuing saga, full of drama fit for the big screen (the scrolls were once sold on the black market and the Judean desert continues to attract treasure hunters). This latest discovery will likely be no different. Why?

Do Pets Distract the Christian Life?

The question with regard to time and money is not only whether it is exorbitant — which it can be, but shouldn’t be. But even if it is modest, would that time, if you had no pet, be devoted to more refreshing, more encouraging, more edifying, more loving, more God-glorifying tasks? That is the question. Mathematically, you might compute that those ten minutes or half hour a day could be better used, but my question is: Would they? The same could be said about almost any activity of lesser importance in our lives. Given up, would they automatically be then piled into the other column of more significant activity? I think we will go mad — at least, John Piper will go mad — if we try to live our lives in that kind of mathematical way. We all know that there is excess that dishonors God in lesser matters, and we should spot that and avoid it, get rid of it. Far too many of us fail to spot that and avoid that. But if we think we can do that every minute of our day and use only what is maximally useful in those minutes, we will probably become a victim of a mental disorder. They have got names for those, and I certainly would.

How to Defend the Gospel from Its Enemies—and Friends

We must do the Lord’s work the Lord’s way. It is not enough for us to identify a misleading voice, and then just do or say whatever feels right. As Jonathan Edwards warned us, “There is nothing that belongs to Christian experience more liable to a corrupt mixture than zeal.” Peter illustrates the folly of misplaced zeal. When the enemies of Jesus attacked, the apostle rose up in defense. His heart was doubtless in the right place. But what did he actually do? He drew his sword, proving not how brave he was but only how foolish ( John 18:10–11 ).

Romans Prescribes the Gospel, Not Execution

The New York Times claims that Romans 1 calls for the execution of gays. A Republican congressman read the passage at a committee hearing. I don’t know the congressman’s purpose, but it couldn’t be to call for the execution of gays because the passage doesn’t say that. And 2,000 years of Christian teaching has never taught that it does.

Contradictions: Could Adam Eat from Any Tree?

But there are other potential solutions that could eliminate this alleged contradiction. The Lord could have been speaking of the fruit on the face of the whole earth beyond the special and unique Garden of Eden. This would make sense considering there were special instructions given to Adam regarding what was edible in the Garden and what was not. In other words, they may have been complementary commands given for two different places.
