Who Created God? | Cold Case Christianity

Richard Dawkins, the famous English evolutionary biologist and renowned atheist, revived an objection related to God’s existence in his book, The God Delusion. In the fourth chapter (Why There Almost Certainly Is No God), Dawkins wrote, “…the designer hypothesis immediately raises the larger problem of who designed the designer. The whole problem we started out with was the problem of explaining statistical improbability. It is obviously no solution to postulate something even more improbable.” In essence, Dawkins offered a restatement of the classic question, “Who created God?” On its face, this seems to be a reasonable question. Christians, after all, claim God created everything we see in our universe (all space, time and matter); He is the cause of our caused cosmos. Skeptics fail to see this as a satisfactory explanation, however, because it seems to beg the question, “If God, created the universe, who (or what) created God?”

Christian History on Twitter

Evangelist and "America's Pastor," Billy Graham has died today at 99. The most well-known and effective evangelist of the 20th-century, he preached to millions, advised American presidents, and was a major driving force behind the Evangelical movement. …

The Secrets to Graham’s Success

Early in his ministry, Graham faced a serious theological crisis of conscience. He resolved it by committing himself unreservedly to the total truthfulness of the Bible. Graham was always conscious that he lacked extensive academic training, yet he encouraged others to foster a sound biblical theology. But Graham would not make a fetish out of doctrinal fads or denominational traditions. Like Paul, he sought to become “all things to all persons” in order to advance the cause of Christ. Graham and his team were on the cutting edge of innovative publications, Christian films, and Internet evangelism. Graham started his work as an evangelist in Youth for Christ. He never lost his vision for reaching the rising generation, even when this meant including the jarring music of the youth culture in his crusades. In heaven, he thought, we will listen to DC Talk as well as Fanny Crosby, with a little J. S. Bach in the background.

Coming Soon! Update to The Creator and the Cosmos. Interview with Hugh Ross.

DR. ROSS: This updated edition took 2.5 years of research and writing on my part and another 9 months of editing and publication preparation on the part of our RTB Press staff. I spent a whole year surveying the scientific literature and synthesizing from what I read the latest new scientific evidences for the God of the Bible as well as objections raised by non-theistic scientists. During the subsequent 6 months, I developed several talks based on what I had discovered and delivered those talks in front of both scientific audiences and non-scientific audiences as a means for soliciting critique and feedback. The next year I spent writing the fourth edition, making frequent revisions in light of newer discoveries and comments I had received from scientists and theologians who reviewed the early manuscripts. The next 9 months I spent working with our editorial staff on enhancing the book’s readability for lay audiences and creating the book’s figures, diagrams, tables, and index.

Billy Graham dies at 99. “Someday,” the great evangelist once said, “you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead.” Here’s what he said we should think when we hear this news.

The Gnostic Gospels: Are They Authentic? - Christian Research Institute

In the first installment of this two-part series, I outlined the stark contrasts between the gnostic Jesus and “the Word become flesh.” These respective views of Jesus are lodged within mutually exclusive world views concerning claims about God, the universe, humanity, and salvation. But our next line of inquiry is to be historical. Do we have a clue as to what Jesus, the Man from Nazareth, actually did and said as a player in space-time history? Should such gnostic documents as the Gospel of Thomas capture our attention as a reliable report of the mind of Jesus, or does the Son of Man of the biblical Gospels speak with the authentic voice? Or must we remain in utter agnosticism about the historical Jesus? Unless we are content to chronicle a cacophony of conflicting views of Jesus based on pure speculation or passionate whimsy, historical investigation is non-negotiable. Christianity has always been a historical religion and any serious challenge to its legitimacy must attend to that fact. Its central claims are rooted in events, not just ideas; in people, not just principles; in revelation, not speculation; in incarnation, not abstraction.

12 Tributes to Billy Graham: 'The Finest Man I Ever Knew'

"Billy Graham was a great man because he understood that every person who ever lived was a sinner in need of a Savior. And with love and compassion for lost people like we all are or were, Billy Graham told us the Good News that Jesus came to save sinners."

Rethinking Our Apologetics: Does Atheism Take More Faith?

This is a rhetoric that many apologists use when confronting atheists. The idea is that since the atheist lacks evidence for his position, he needs more faith to make up the difference. But I think this portrays faith in a confusing and unhelpful way for three reasons.

Does Evidence Take Away from the Bible's Authority?

Christians have always been extremely wary of holding anything, such as philosophy or “reason” or evidence, as an authority over Scripture. It is sometimes argued that if one appeals to something as a reason to believe Scripture, then that thing becomes one’s authority. But, for the Christian, nothing can stand in authority over Scripture. Thus, we cannot use reason and evidence as our basis for believing the claims of Scripture.

Here Is How Evolutionists Respond to the Evidence | Evolution News

Third , some evolutionists recognize this undeniable evidence and how impossible evolution is. Their solution is to call upon a multiverse to overcome the evidence. If an event is so unlikely it would never occur in our universe, just create a multitude of universes. And how many universes are there? The answer is, as many as are needed. In other words, when confronted with an impossibility, evolutionist simply contrive a mythical solution.

A conversation with Lee and Leslie Strobel

While working for The Chicago Tribune , atheist Lee Strobel put his skills to work as he examined the evidence for a historical Jesus. The conversion of his wife, Leslie, was his inspiration. His study, and his wife’s patient support, resulted in his own conversion to Christianity in 1981 — and his 1998 book, “ The Case for Christ: A Journalist’s Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus .” Critics hailed Lee Strobel’s “bulldog-like tenacity” as he interviewed 13 religious scholars for the book.

Why Faith in God Is Not Stupid

How do we know God exists? The go-to Sunday School answer is faith, but is that really a legitimate way to know? Is there any difference between having faith in the God of the Bible or faith in the Flying Spaghetti Monster? Is faith just choosing something to believe in even if there is no evidence or logic to prove it? These and similar questions are often posed as a challenge to Christianity. To answer these questions, I want to go behind these objections and begin by tackling the underlying question: how can we know anything? Many men and women have wrestled with this question throughout history. Generally speaking, responses can be lumped into one of three categories.

Fear Not Ecclesiastes

Fourth, Ecclesiastes must be understood within its genre. It is wisdom literature , along with Job and Proverbs. [ii] These books read differently than a Gospel or a letter of Paul. See for yourself. Wisdom literature gives us personal reflections rather than a systematic account of a subject. It is usually written in the form of poetry. Much is expressed in memorable proverbs or sayings, such as “the more words, the less meaning and how does it profit anyone? (Ecclesiastes 6:11)” and “better a live dog than a dead lion” (9:4). However, wisdom literature is never false or misleading. I simply must be read in the right way. For example, when the Preacher of Ecclesiastes says, “So I hated life, because the work that is done under the sun was grievous to me. All of it is meaningless, a chasing after the wind: (2:19),” he is voicing part of his quest for wisdom. He is not advocating that everyone hate life! The Preacher is not done with his quest for wisdom. Ecclesiastes should be experienced within its proper genre. In fact, we should be glad that God revealed truth through so many genres.

How to Raise Your Kids So They Will Remain in the Faith | Cold Case Christianity

Some good guidance here (please visit Daryl’s post for all the details). The most striking “tip” Daryl offered, however, was #4: Teach your children the Bible and about God. Who wouldn’t agree with this priority? For many of us, however, the challenge seems daunting. Do we know enough about the Bible to teach it to our children? What else do we need to know in order to effectively teach our children about God? Does this also involve making a case for God’s existence and answering the objections they will ultimately face from the culture? I think it does. Several years ago, Jon Nielson , the college pastor at College Church in Wheaton, Illinois wrote an article entitled, Why Youth Stay in Church When They Grow Up . Jon cited three important characteristics of college aged Christians who held on to their faith and were committed to their church family:

The Unwelcome Gift of Waiting

It’s hardest to wait when I am uncertain about the outcome. When I’m trusting God for the best, while at the same time preparing for the worst. It would be much easier if I had a guaranteed good outcome. Or at least a promise from God to hold on to. Or some reassurance to anchor my prayers. But God often seems silent when I’m waiting. I have no idea whether he’ll ever answer my prayer, so it feels like I’m waiting in the dark.

Billy Graham, R.I.P. - Christ Church

Many years ago, when televangelist scandals were a thing, I was on the east coast for some ministry event or other, and found myself in need of a haircut. I sought out a barbershop, and the barber’s conversation turned to current events—as is the custom. The barber was not a Christian, as far as I could tell, and the scandals did come up. I will always remember what he volunteered out of nowhere. He said something like, “Well, they will never get ol’ Billy.”
