Bluffing is for Poker, Not Apologetics

A few days ago I wrote a blog post arguing one mustn't be a biologist to comment on the evolution debate. The post was well received, but also gathered a few comments, such as a gentleman who responded, "I agree that people shouldn't be prohibited from opining on [evolution] just because they aren't biologists but they should familiarize themselves with the subject matter. Both sides often do not do so which leads to so many angry, pointless arguments." I saw more than one response that commented similarly.

How to Honor Christ in our Apologetics

One way we dishonor Christ is by not trusting what the Bible says about unbelievers. The Bible tells us in Romans 1 that all men know God exists but suppress the truth in unrighteousness. As we talk to unbelievers, we should not grant to them that they do not believe in God. I’m not saying that we should point at them and scream “liar.” But we must gently and carefully, but boldly, show them in Scripture that the Bible says that all men believe but suppress the truth because they love their sin. When someone says that they would believe in God if they could only have some evidence, we know that, biblically, this simply isn’t true. The Bible is the only evidence that people need. Whether it is Romans 10:17, or the story of the rich man and Lazarus, the Bible proclaims itself to be the only evidence people need in order to have faith. Jesus, in the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:19-31, goes as far as saying that a resurrection wouldn’t be enough to convince someone. The Bible is enough, and it is the only power unto salvation. Besides, presenting evidence to an atheist would mean that you are the lawyer, they are the judge and jury, and the judge of the universe–God, Himself–is on trial! That is flipped, messed up, and dishonoring to Christ.

Just the Facts: The Minimalist Approach for Talking about the Resurrection

The other year, I sent three questions to many of my friends about Jesus. I asked who they thought Jesus is (a wise dead man, a liar, the risen savior, etc.), what happened to Jesus (he died like everyone else or he was resurrected), and if there was evidence to examine, would you reconsider your belief. While the answers varied, of course, a handful of people believed he was not God, died a permanent death, and yet his followers either pulled off the greatest conspiracy ever or we’ve misinterpreted what resurrection really means. Those same people then, with the last question, said that if evidence was presented contrary, they would have to reconsider the claims of Christ.

The Simplicity of the Christian Faith

The Christian faith is quite simple. For many Christians, it seems too simple to sum up our faith by saying, “It is all in Christ.” Therefore, we often will seek and strive to make it more complex. As Christians, we must stand guard against the tendency to undo, nullify, or eclipse the simplicity of our faith.

15 Why Christian Theology Needs (Former) Atheists

Walter Hooper, C. S. Lewis’s personal secretary, once commented to the great Christian writer about a clever inscription engraved on an atheist’s tombstone: “Here lies an atheist. All dressed up with no place to go.” Not bemused, Lewis quipped: “That atheist probably wishes now that were true.”

Do The Gospels Disagree About Jesus?

A standard method of attack against the New Testament inerrancy is to pit one or two books against each other.  While this approach has been used with the epistles, it is most often used with the Gospels.  A clear example of this is found in the work of Bart Ehrman.  Both on his blog[1] and in interviews[2], Ehrman insists that Gospels such as Mark and Luke present different, even contradictory depictions of Jesus.  During an interview on the famous show, The Colbert Report, he stated,

A Critical Crossroad: 10 Apologetics Quotes

The Bible teaches a dual, consistent revelation. Just as readers rightfully expect valid interpretation of Isaiah to be consistent with that of Mark, so too they can expect accurate interpretation of the facts of nature to be consistent with the message of Genesis and the rest of Scripture… When science appears to conflict with theology, we have no reason to reject either the facts of nature or the Bible's words. Rather, we have reason to reexamine our interpretations, because the facts of nature and Scripture will always agree.

The 10 Celebrities Evangelicals Trust Most and Least on Politics

Outside of individual endorsements, evangelicals—like most voters—put clout in what their partner or party has to say about a candidate. Nearly half of evangelicals said their spouse’s endorsement (49%) would make a positive difference, as would a boost from the Republican Party (47%). On the other hand, more than 4 in 10 evangelicals said endorsements from the Democratic Party (42%) or the Democratic Socialists of America (47%) would be a turnoff.

Racism and Ignorance in American Christianity

I have had an incredibly formative last couple of years, and one of the things that I have been researching and learning about is the issue of race in the United States. I have to admit my own extreme ignorance of the topic going in, and I definitely do not claim to have become an expert in the topic. I still feel I am only beginning to learn about the many interconnected ways race impacts the way we think and act in the United States, as well as the deep history of racial tensions in our country.

Why Don't Brilliant Scientists Like Stephen Hawking Believe in God?

This point has not escaped the attention of skeptics who often promote the idea that science and God are in conflict. As supporting evidence of that supposed conflict, skeptics often claim that virtually no scientists believe in God. More specifically, they back up their claim by citing a 1998 research study that showed 93 percent of the members of the National Academy of Sciences (an elite scientific organization in the United States) don’t believe in God. That finding caught the media’s attention and it’s been continually quoted ever since as a known fact about the relationship of religious belief and scientific professions.

Parents are the first apologists your child should ever meet

One ministry that I am afraid that will be left out of this new attention given to loving God with all of your mind (Luke 10:27) will be the children’s ministry. It will be easy to assume that because of the nature of apologetics small children will not be able to comprehend that kind of information. At best apologetics for most churches will begin at the high school level because of the obvious need there and because of the misconception that small children cant handle it. In other words, it will be difficult to convince local churches to substitute paintings of Anselm and Thomas Aquinas for Noah’s Ark and Daniel in the lion’s den. Unfortunately those in the culture interested in imposing their will on your children will not be so naïve.

“I Never Made a Sacrifice”: The Call and Question of David Livingstone

For my own part, I have never ceased to rejoice that God has appointed me to such an office. People talk of the sacrifice I have made in spending so much of my life in Africa. . . . Is that a sacrifice which brings its own blest reward in healthful activity, the consciousness of doing good, peace of mind, and a bright hope of a glorious destiny hereafter? Away with the word in such a view, and with such a thought! It is emphatically no sacrifice. Say rather it is a privilege. Anxiety, sickness, suffering, or danger, now and then, with a foregoing of the common conveniences and charities of this life, may make us pause, and cause the spirit to waver, and the soul to sink; but let this only be for a moment. All these are nothing when compared with the glory which shall be revealed in and for us. I never made a sacrifice. ( Perspectives on the World Christian Movement , 1981, 259)

The Case for Faith: Coping with Contradictions

“For example, assuming the unexplained is unexplainable. I’m sure some sharp critic could say to me, ‘What about this issue?’ and even though I’ve done a forty-year study of these things, I wouldn’t be able to answer him. What does that prove — that the Bible has an error or Geisler is ignorant? I’d give the benefit of the doubt to the Bible, because of the eight hundred allegations I’ve studied, I haven’t found one single error in the Bible, but I’ve found a lot of errors by the critics.”

How Larry Norman Became the Elvis Presley of Christian Rock

But there was a problem: Norman, the band’s principal songwriter, wanted to talk about Jesus with his music. He haggled with Capitol over the title of the band’s first LP, which he wanted to call “We Need a Whole Lot More of Jesus, and a Lot Less Rock and Roll,” an old Wayne Raney Christian revival number. Capitol resisted, opting to name the record after the band’s hit tune. But there was yet another rift. Several members, including founding brothers Geoff and Robb Levin, began exploring Scientology. When Norman refused to submit to the Scientology practice of “auditing” (a series of questions by a trained listener intended to lead to spiritual insights), he became targeted as a “suppressive person.” After a freak stage collapse nearly cost Norman his right index finger, he took it as a sign from God to move on.

Is Early Christian Testimony Inadmissible? Should Testimony Be Rejected?

The only legitimate way to dispute the biblical narratives is first to accept the early Christian testimony regardless of the manner in which the writers would identify themselves and then evaluate them as one would any other claim. This would involve the engagement and dissection of the individual claims made therein, and then come to a reasonable conclusion about whether or not they are true. But in order to properly weigh the evidence, the evidence must first be admissible. If one is inclined to reject evidence before adequate consideration, one has already made up his mind before examination – a position that is disingenuous at best, and psychologically self-manipulative at worst. Those who routinely carry out this sort of behavior are not interested in finding the truth; they are more interested in only presuming themselves to be right. What does the a priori rejection of testimony say about the psychological state of the one who is doing the investigation? Is it not a maneuver meant to sustain one’s beliefs against what might potentially be the kind of evidence that might just capsize their ship of beliefs? Not only is it erroneous to dismiss early Christian testimony on grounds of bias but it is also erroneous to reject miracles on grounds of precedence and wrongheaded to dismiss the Bible itself as evidence because of Christian bias .

Dear Dr. Peterson: The Resurrection is Credible. Dear MSM: Just Stop It. | The Stream

Dear Trilemma, God is Triune, meaning God is Tri, or three. Jesus is the Son of God, God is Father, and God is Spirit, Three in One. This is not unknown in creation, for instance the sun around which the earth orbits is three parts, heat, gas and light, water is vapor, liquid and ice, etc. I do not attempt to explain to any depth the nature of the Triune God, but by faith in God, believing in the Word of God in written form, the Bible, I will KNOW God when I move from life on earth, passing through physical death, to becoming physically and spiritually alive in fellowship with God eternally in Heaven. The message which is given throughout His letter to us is Jesus Son of God, perfect man, perfect God, gave His life for our sin, sin interrupts our relationship with God ever since Satan deceived Eve and Adam in the Garden of Eden, and God cannot look on our sin. Sin brings death, unless we acknowledge what Jesus’ death and resurrection did for us. His death paid for our sin, His resurrection brings us up out of death into New Life by the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead.
