Why Generation Z is less Christian than ever -- and why that's good news

Many Christian teens are simply unprepared for the world that is waiting for them. With the best of intentions, we bubble wrap our kids and create Disney World–like environments for them in our churches, and then wonder why they have no resilience in faith or life. Students are entertained but not prepared. They’ve had a lot of fun but are not ready to lead. When the pressure to conform is turned up, Christian teenagers tend to wilt if they do not have the confidence that only comes from knowing why they believe what they believe. As one teenager told me, “following Jesus today is hard because sometimes you feel like the only one.”

The Work of Textual Criticism

For those of you who have engaged with Christian apologetics, you probably understand that a common objection to the Bible is that it has been changed or corrupted over time. Our response is to point out the number of manuscripts we have of the Bible, the early date of many of the manuscripts, and give a brief explanation of how this helps us to reconstruct the original text of the Bible through a process referred to as “Textual Criticism.”

My Email Exchange with Yahoo News! | Eric Metaxas

Q. You wrote in your book “If You Can Keep It” about the need for virtuous citizens, and you defined virtue as the willingness to sacrifice personal interests for the common good. This seems central to how different people interpret Trump, and to why many white evangelical Trump voters feel the need to defend him as president, because criticizing him feels like acknowledging that voting for him was actually an act of self-preservation that hurt the rest of the country. What do you think of that? Have you engaged much with John Fea’s critique of your book? He makes a persuasive argument that you have airbrushed the American founding into an airbrushed version that exaggerates the role of Christianity as the sole source of virtue (not one of several), that exaggerates the extent to which there was religious liberty at the founding (Seamus Hasson’s “Right to Be Wrong” is best I’ve read on this topic), and treats the American experiment as more of a miracle detached from anything before it than it was. Fea writes that America built on the democratic principles at play in British life, which is something of a subtle point, but an interesting one which tempers exuberance over American exceptionalism as some kind of divinely ordered miracle.

“God has done it all! He sent Christ to make peace between himself and us, and he has given us the work of making peace between himself and others. What we mean is that God was in Christ, offering peace and forgiveness to the people of this world. And he has given us the work of sharing his message about peace. We were sent to speak for Christ, and God is begging you to listen to our message. We speak for Christ and sincerely ask you to make peace with God”

William Lane Craig explains why he is not a Catholic

Bishop Robert Barron and William Lane Craig discuss evangelism, faith and science, secularism, and more. Moderated by Professor Stephen Davis and Professor Edward Feser. Venue: The Claremont Center for Reason, Religion, and Public Affairs. William Lane Craig is Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology and Professor of Philosophy at Houston Baptist University. He and his wife Jan have two grown children. At the age of sixteen as a junior in high school, he first heard the message of the Christian gospel and yielded his life to Christ. Dr. Craig pursued his undergraduate studies at Wheaton College (B.A. 1971) and graduate studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.A. 1974; M.A. 1975), the University of Birmingham (England) (Ph.D. 1977), and the University of Munich (Germany) (D.Theol. 1984). From 1980-86 he taught Philosophy of Religion at Trinity, during which time he and Jan started their family. In 1987 they moved to Brussels, Belgium, where Dr. Craig pursued research at the University of Louvain until assuming his position at Talbot in 1994. He has authored or edited over thirty books, including The Kalam Cosmological Argument; Assessing the New Testament Evidence for the Historicity of the Resurrection of Jesus; Divine Foreknowledge and Human Freedom; Theism, Atheism and Big Bang Cosmology; and God, Time and Eternity, as well as over a hundred articles in professional journals of philosophy and theology, including The Journal of Philosophy, New Testament Studies, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, American Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophical Studies, Philosophy, and British Journal for Philosophy of Science.

This is Us and Biblical Manhood | Think Christian

This Is Us exposes the lie that the most significant accomplishment for a man revolves around his sexual escapades or his career success. A father and husband’s significance is found in sacrifice, especially for the sake of his family. That is biblical manhood. When Jack’s life abruptly ended, his wife and kids didn’t treasure the material gifts he had provided. What lived on in their memories were the everyday interactions of sacrifice and love that they experienced with a caring husband and father. Ephesians encourages husbands to follow Christ’s example of caring for his church, giving up his own life for it. Time and again on This is Us , that is exactly what Jack does for his family.

Practicing Amazement

Because amazement is such a wonderful experience, we seek situations that provoke it in us. This pursuit keeps the National Park Service full of annual visitors. It drives the travel industry. It keeps us going to the silver screen to be immersed in worlds unlike our own. We want to be amazed, but we don’t know how to amaze ourselves.

Apologetics as a Martial Art?

When I was a teenager I used to study martial arts.  A long tradition of self-defense training ran in my family.  My parents are both black belts in the martial art known as Tang Soo Do and actually first met in a martial arts class that my dad was instructing.  Through the years I’ve studied many different styles but none were so impactful to me, or as effective for me, then the martial art known as Aikido.  If you’ve ever seen a Steven Seagal movie, you’ve seen Aikido.  While it’s portrayed in film as a very violent martial art, it is, in fact, very fluid.  Where Aikido finds its effectiveness is in the irimi tenkan motions, which take the momentum of the opponent and use it against them.  Being that I am now, and always was, smaller than average this was very useful.  I’ve always loved Aikido and consider my time studying it to be the most formative of my youth.

How Passion Primes the Case for Christianity

As a cold-case detective and part of a three generation law enforcement family, I’ve got a secret I’d like to share with you: the majority of criminal (and civil) cases are won or lost well before the opening statements or closing arguments. Most cases are decided at jury selection . You can have a great case but lose miserably if you don’t have the right jury. That’s why prosecutors and defense attorneys specialize (or hire specialists) in jury selection. Both sides are looking for jurors who aren’t biased against some important aspect of their case; better yet, each side wants a jury inclined to agree with their position, even before they start the trial. A lot of effort is expended trying to figure out which twelve people (from the larger jury pool) should be selected. Case makers use surveys and questionnaires to ask important questions of each juror as they try their best to sort through the candidates. No one wants to present a criminal case to a group that hasn’t been carefully screened, questioned and examined. If case makers fail to assemble the right jury, their efforts to articulate and argue the case will be meaningless.

Ravi Zacharias: The human condition as it really is

The use or abuse of Christianity in contradiction to the very message of the gospel reveals not the gospel for what it is, but the heart of man. That is why atheism is so bankrupt as a view of life, for it miserably fails to deal with the human condition as it really is.

​In my studies of the Kalam Cosmological Argument, I’ve come across some interesting objections. Some of these objections are good objections and some are just held high among YouTube, atheist laymen. This article will deal with the good objections and a link will be given to Dr. Craig’s response to the online YouTube objections.

The Comparatively Rich Archaeological Corroboration of the Old Testament | Cold Case Christianity

The historical record of the Old Testament is not alone in the history it records. There are other ancient records affirming the overarching generalities and specific details of the Old Testament. There are no such corroborative ancient records providing similar verification for the history of the Book of Mormon. It is the singular lonely voice related to the historical narrative it describes. While archaeology continues to corroborate the Old and New Testament, archaeology only exposes the erroneous nature of the Mormon record .

Benny Hinn Is My Uncle, but Prosperity Preaching Isn’t for Me

Before going to college, I took a year off and joined Benny’s ministry as a “catcher” (someone who catches the people who are “slain in the spirit”) and personal assistant. This was a rite of passage in my family, as nearly every nephew worked for him at some point. It was a show of loyalty and gratitude. That year was a whirlwind tour of luxury: $25,000-a-night royal suites in Dubai, seaside resorts in Greece, tours of the Swiss Alps, villas on Lake Como in Italy, basking on the golden coast of Australia, shopping sprees at Harrods in London, and numerous trips to Israel, Hawaii, and everywhere in between. The pay was great, we flew on our own private Gulfstream, and I got to buy custom suits. All I had to do was catch people and look spiritual!

Why Shouldn't We Trust the Non-Canonical Gospel Attributed to John? | Cold Case Christianity

Where (and Why) Does It Differ from the Reliable Accounts? The Apocryphon of John is concerned primarily with an account of the creation of the world. The text was discovered in the Nag Hammadi library as the first document in a series of Sethian Gnostic texts and it includes the most detailed Sethian creation mythology. The role and position of Jesus in the Godhead is very different from orthodox canonical descriptions as a result of the presuppositions of Sethians who wrote this text. Sethian believers appear to have accepted the historicity of Jesus but attempted to place Him within their preconceived Sethian beliefs.

Facts vs Faith

There is a common indictment made by skeptics and critics of religion, that Christianity is based on faith while science is based on facts. These skeptics view faith as a vice because, in their opinion, faith is not based on evidence and blindly accepts religious dogma. The biologist Richard Dawkins has said, "Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence," and "Faith, being belief that isn’t based on evidence, is the principal vice of any religion." The biologist Jerry Coyne writes, "Indeed, by relying on faith rather than evidence, religion renders itself incapable of finding truth."

3 Reasons to Give up Apologetics

The first time I approached a church about teaching apologetics, I received an all too common response from the pastor: “We teach the Bible, we don’t need that.” As I listened to his sermon, I couldn’t help but see the irony in his appeals to missionary work. He said, “They will know you by your fruits”, a clear message from Jesus at the Sermon on the Mount. So the pastor wanted his congregation to go out and win hearts and minds for Christ… without providing any reasons!? Apologetics is clearly a piece of the endeavor but putting the term ‘apologetics’ on the mission appears to complicate the ask.

Dumping the Term: "Christian Apologist" | Cold Case Christianity

I’ve written much more about this process in an article, How To Become A Christian Case Maker . The hope here is to establish a connotation that is less defensive and “apologetic” and more confident and courageous. Most of us hate to have to apologize for something or defend ourselves. We’re happy, however, to make a case for what we believe. Perhaps changing our terminology here will encourage is to take up the cause for Christ with courage and confidence. (I’ve written much more about this in next year’s book, Forensic Faith , due out in May)

You Can Ban All the Symbols but Without God There Wouldn't Be a Classroom

So, while school officials and teachers reason with one another about religious symbols that point to the existence of God, let's remind them that their ability to freely evaluate their options requires the existence of God. As they freely (and increasingly) remove these symbols of God from the classroom, let's remind them that their ability to do so required God's gift of free agency. They can ban all the symbols they want, but without God, there wouldn't be any ability to reason, nor any need for classrooms.
