Did the Apostles Really Die as Martyrs? | Mikel Del Rosario | Your Apologetics Guy℠

Evidence That Demands a Verdict Growing up, I had a lot of questions about the faith. So I went looking for answers. One of the first apologetics books I discovered on my dad’s shelf was Josh McDowell’s classic work, Evidence that Demands a Verdict. My dad even arranged for me to meet Josh while I …

TD Jakes Offers Apology to Volunteer Assaulted at Potter's House Fort Worth

Are the Hebrew Letters to be Interpreted from their Original Picture Signs? - Dr. Michael Heiser

I recommend the video below created by Dr. Michael Brown. It’s more than a debunking of the deeply flawed, nonsensical idea that the meaning of Hebrew letters is to be found in their original pictographic (picture) representations. Like myself, Dr. Brown is a trained Hebrew scholar and Semitist. He knows what he’s talking about here. …

The Resurrection Comfort of Easter

As with most redemptive elements of the Christian religion, the resurrection of Christ confers upon its beneficiaries a present and a future status. Presently and spiritually, the resurrection raises Christians to newness of life (Rom. 6:4) and seats them in the heavenly places with Christ (Eph. 2:6). His vindication serves as the foundation for the judicial status of righteousness received by those who trust Him alone for salvation (Rom. 4:25). This is what theologians define as the “already/not yet” tension that characterizes the New Testament, or what Herman Ridderbos defined as Paul’s inaugurated eschatology. In the Old Testament sense of redemptive history, the “day of the Lord” was a one-step event bifurcating the old age and the new age. In one sense, Paul splits the day of the Lord in half and applies it to the first and second comings of Christ. At the first coming, the new age was inaugurated. For Christians, the judgment aspect of the day of the Lord has already passed, God’s wrath having been poured out on Christ, who died in place of His people. In another sense, however, the day of the Lord remains not yet for us—it is still a future event to be fulfilled in the second coming of Christ.

The Resurrection of Jesus is still the most reasonable inference from the evidence

In order for the Resurrection of Jesus to be a late legend, the story would have to be both late and a legend. It is neither. The earliest New Testament documents include the Resurrection story, and the record of the early Church fathers demonstrates that the story was not altered over time. The truth of the Gospel accounts and the Resurrection of Jesus is still the most reasonable inference from the evidence.

6 things every Christian needs to know about sanctification

Sanctification is the cooperative work of God and Christians (Phil. 2:12–13) by which ongoing transformation into greater Christlikeness occurs. Such maturing transpires particularly through the Holy Spirit (2 Cor. 3: 18; Gal. 5: 16– 23) and the Word of God (John 17: 17). Sanctification is not about perfection, but persistence. Fighting sin is a lifelong endeavor. The believer cooperates with the Holy Spirit working in them, their works being an expression of gratitude for their salvation. Sanctification, therefore, begins at the moment of conversion.

The Truth About Truth

In John 8:31-31, Jesus is recorded as conclusively saying: “ If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” The concept of truth is very much avoided in modern secular society. Instead, we are meant to choose our own truth, and live as we see fit. We’re told that what’s true for you isn’t necessarily true for me, and everything is actually up for interpretation. Right from wrong is never clear-cut, and morality is basically a subjective society-created idea. According to the modern academia, truth is an elusive and abstract concept, and we waste our time trying to pin anything down as true.

Cold-Case Homicide Detective J. Warner Wallace Investigates Easter

Greg’s Note: If you’re a regular visitor to The Poached Egg then you are most likely no stranger to the writings of former atheist and cold-case homicide detective, J. [Jim] Warner Wallace as he is one of the most prolific writers in the field of Christian Apologetics (or, ‘Christian Case-Making’, as he likes to call it) today and many of his blog posts (including the ones listed below) and books have been featured here. In 2016, Wallace ran a series on his website, ColdCaseChristianity.com , called Investigating Easter . This time of year when the skeptics are coming out of the woodwork, I thought you might find it handy to have the entire series gathered together in one place. Each of the seven posts are short and easily digestible, but they are not short on the critical thinking and analytical skills of a highly trained and experience detective!

Resources to Help You Defend Christian Orthodoxy | Cold Case Christianity

The word “orthodox” does not actually appear in the Bible, but its meaning is affirmed throughout the Scriptures. The Bible describes the existence of objective Biblical truth and prescribes the teaching and defense of this truth. We’re living in an age where it’s stylish for Christians to be involved in an open “conversation” about the questions and doctrines of the faith, without making decisive proclamations about what is true (or false). The following articles were written to help you investigate the Biblical truth so you can guard and protect it from corruption:

4 Misconceptions about Resurrection...and the Truth.

3. Resurrection Is Not Resuscitation . As mentioned by the skeptic in the opening story, the Bible records many instances of people coming back to life. Elijah raised the widow’s son (1 Kings 17:17-24). Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead (John 11:43-44). Peter raised Tabitha (Acts 9:36-42). And Paul raised Eutychus (Acts 20:9-12). But here is the difference between these people and Jesus: They would each die again, but Jesus was raised to immortality and glory.

Tendons Are Irreducibly Complex | Evolution News

We’ve seen seven to eight levels of hierarchy in a tendon’s structure — enough to begin thinking about irreducible complexity (IC). Add to that the physical constraints of ability to withstand rupture while storing energy, the crosslinks, and the repair options, and the case for IC grows. It becomes overwhelmingly persuasive when we consider that the fibers are coded by genes and built by ribosomes using two independent codes: the genetic code and the protein code. On top of that, consider that the fibrils must be sent to the proper location in the body and wrapped with others at the proper angle by other molecular machines.

Dating: Good Jealousy and Bad

Good jealousy and bad jealousy in dating relationships is the topic today. Not an uncommon question, but one we’ve never gotten to. It arrives in the form of an email from a listener named Charles. “Hello, Pastor John. I’m very thankful for your ministry and the profound impact God is making through you for the kingdom. I have battled with jealousy and control in romantic relationships all my life. I pray to be fully delivered from it, one day, but it hasn’t happened yet. Is jealousy normal in dating? And how can I fight it?”

2 Scripture passages every pastor needs today (and every day)

That precious promise drives away anxiety and discouragement on those days when nothing seems to be happening in ministry, when I’m sowing but nothing seems to be growing. If I have been faithful, I can plant the seed and rest easy in Christ, knowing his Spirit will cause the seed to germinate and take root in human hearts, in soil made good by the Holy Spirit (see Mark 4:1-9). I need not pressure the people, harangue them, cajole them, or wring my hands in perplexity. This parable comforts me with the truth Luther understood, the truth that was the catalyst for one of the greatest revivals in church history 500 years ago: “The Word did everything, I did nothing.” Indeed.

There’s a reason the Bible begins the way it does. Notice the first verse: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1). God is there before anything begins, and He starts it all. Without Him, there would be nothing. The universe and everything in it is His kingdom. He’s the King, and it’s His domain.

What Evolution “Controversy”? Scott Turner Gets High Praise from Quarterly Review of Biology | Evolution News

This confirms an observation that philosopher of science Stephen Meyer and others have often made.

You must read what they say in the relative privacy of their professional journals.

Why the Appearance of Design in Biology Is a Problem for Atheistic Naturalism

As unlikely and unexpected as it may be, life exists in our universe , and just as researchers stipulate to the appearance of fine-tuning in the cosmos , scientists also stipulate to the appearance of design in biological organisms . Richard Dawkins would be the first to agree: “Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose.” Many other scientists affirm this observation and extend it to include the larger ecosystems in which many symbiotic organisms are dependent on one another for their survival. Smith College professor of biological sciences, Robert Dorit says, “The apparent fit between organisms seems to suggest some higher intelligence at work, some supervisory gardener bringing harmony and color to the garden.” For scientists looking for an explanation within the “garden” to avoid the inference of an external “supervisory gardener,” this appearance of design is difficult to explain.

Pray for Those Who Abuse You

So, whether others “persecute” or “abuse” or “hate” or “curse” us, we are to pray for them.

Or they may be mortal enemies who really do plan to kill us. Small or great, we are to pray for them.
