Have We Lost the Message of the New Testament? | Mikel Del Rosario | Your Apologetics Guy℠

Lost the Plot? Have we somehow lost the message of the New Testament through irreparable corruptions of the text? That’s what some people wonder when the conversation turns to the issue of textual variants—differences in the biblical manuscripts we’ve discovered over the years. Maybe you’ve got a friend or a co-worker who tends to be pretty skeptical of the Bible right from the get-go. For …

If There is Such Good Evidence for God, Why Don't More People Believe?

The scientific, philosophical, and historical evidence for God is powerful. So, why don't more people believe? Sean briefly answers these Questions.

This Is Apologetics: An Argument from Christian Hypocrisy

The objection that Christians are hypocrites, and therefore Christianity must be false, borrows from the very Christian worldview. By presupposing objective morality, the objection presupposes the very God it aims to disprove.

How to Wait

For the Christian, there is something to look forward to. Something we should feel great eagerness for. We are anticipating a time when all sorrows will be wiped away. We are anticipating a time when the kingdom will be consummated. We are anticipating the unity of all tribes, tongues, and nations. We are anticipating being with the Lord forever. In remembering that this earth is not our home, that we truly do have a citizenship in heaven, we instruct our hearts and minds as we interact with the world around us.

The case for the martyrdom of the apostles

Starhopper, the original post was about the apostles. What were they talking about mainly? Belief in God in general? Deep philosophical discussions on the meaning of life or how we got here? Not really, right? They were people who were convinced that someone had just magically came back to life. That's what you believe in. If you want to call this miraculous instead, that's fine, but it doesn't change the fact that there is literally no difference between that and magic, from an outsider's perspective. You claim it's different because you are compartmentalizing your beliefs. So yes, semantics matter, but can also be used as a tool to avoid answering the tough questions. But let me ask you an honest (yet old) question. When you say "If you want a more scholarly (and, to be honest, enjoyable) take on the Resurrection..." my instant reaction is 'of course not'. Why should I care about about? So to be more precise, my old question is, and it's always been the same: why should I believe claims about miraculous events based only on books? Now, I already know there will be nothing coming out of that question, so I will have nothing further to say on that topic, but it will be interesting to see if you, by miracle (pun intended), have a different answer.

Adam and the Genome and the Evolution of the Genetic Code | Evolution News

Indeed, Venema is aware of Meyer and Nelson’s technical paper. He doesn’t mention it in the body of Adam and the Genome , so most readers will have no idea that Meyer co-authored a detailed, technical rebuttal to the very evidence Venema is discussing. However, Venema does mention Meyer and Nelson’s paper in an endnote buried at the back of the book. There, he claims that Meyer and Nelson are wrong to argue that “the binding affinities observed between some amino acids and their codons or anticodons are merely an artifact of Yarus’s experimental design.” (p. 207) Venema writes: “This claim, however, is not supported by the evidence that Yarus and his colleagues present in their numerous publications.” But he provides no details or citations to Yarus’s other work to explain why Meyer and Nelson are wrong. At present, Venema’s counter-claim appears to be an unbacked assertion, and Meyer and Nelson’s concerns stand.

Why Did a “Good” God Create Hell?

Al, you begin with the statement, “Many people today accuse God of unfairness.” Not really, they attack your philosophy of god because it doesn’t make sense. They are questioning your logic and the logic of the bible. Al, a good god did not create hell. Ancient, barbaric, ignorant, fearful men created hell. Men like those which currently populate ISIS. Men, who understood the controlling power of the emotion of fear created the concept of hell. Ask yourself, if god is so beautiful, so attractive, so desirable, why the need for the coercive element of fear? Your article is just a poor rationalization for the fact that you have fallen in love with an imaginary being that you believe will in the future horribly torture most every creature that has ever lived. And, you’re asking us to join you in your neurosis. Becoming a Christian is not a free will choice. It is a choice between obedience and torture. What kind of choice is that? Did your parents ever tell you that you could love and obey them or they would chain you to the wall in the basement and torture you? And if you did decide to “love” them under those conditions would that really be love? That’s a very twisted sort of love.

Book Review: Expanded and Updated Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell

Introduction When I began investigating the evidence for Christianity, one name that believers repeatedly recommended was Josh McDowell .  I began looking into his works and discovered two titles- More than a Carpenter and Evidence that Demands a Verdict (EDAV).  At the time, I especially found EDAV to be a great resource for a novice like myself.  It enabled me to evaluate some of the manuscript evidence for the Old Testament and the New Testament. Amazingly, the original EDAV was published in 1979!  The new edition is thoroughly revised and updated from previous editions in light of the plethora of recently uncovered historical documentation and the best of modern scholarship.  The chapters are expanded and address many of the most recent attacks from Christianity's harshest critics. In addition, EDAV is now co-authored by Josh McDowell and his son, Sean McDowell, Ph.D .  This new work provides "fresh insights, greater perspective and a fresh voice to today's most pressing questions." Strengths of the Book Usually, when we receive a book to review, we post a book preview of the work for readers to familiarize themselves with a forthcoming text.

7 Fascinating Facts that Make the Bible Unique

1. Unique in Authorship . The Bible was written by roughly forty different people from a whole range of backgrounds. Authors include kings (Solomon), fishermen (Peter), doctors (Luke), military leaders (Joshua), tax collectors (Matthew), and even some who are unknown. Biblical writers include almost every type of person: wise and foolish, faithful and treacherous, rich and poor, innocent and guilty, and young and old.

The Commitment of the Apostles Confirms the Truth of the Resurrection

Many of us, as committed Christians, would rather die than reject our Savior. Around the world today, Christians are executed regularly because they refuse to deny their allegiance to Jesus or the truth claims of Christianity. But their deaths, while heartbreaking and compelling, have no evidential value. Many people are willing to die for what they don’t know is a lie. Martyrdom doesn’t confirm the truth, especially when the martyrs don’t have first-hand access to the claim for which they’re dying. But this wasn’t the case for the disciples of Jesus. They were in a unique position: they knew if the claims about Jesus were true. They were present for the life, ministry, death and alleged resurrection of Jesus. If the claims about Jesus were a lie, the disciples would have known it (in fact they would have been the source of the lie). That’s why their commitment to their testimony was (and is) so compelling. Unlike the rest of us, their willingness to die for their claims has tremendous evidential value. In fact, the commitment of the apostles confirms the truth of the resurrection.

Russell Moore: There Is No Excuse for Not Helping Dreamers

Busted: The Book of Acts Agrees With the Skeptics!?

Many anti-Christian commentators argue that the gospels and other New Testament documents, contrary to Church teaching, could not have been written by direct eyewitnesses to the events they describe.  This is because, they argue, Jesus and his disciples were just simple, illiterate, Aramaic-speaking peasants who probably couldn’t write their own names, let alone a Greek gospel account.  The argument is weak, and we have countered it in other articles ( here and here ).

How to Share the Gospel Without Being a Jerk

Nobody likes a jerk, but so often this is the impression many Christians give when sharing the faith. There are many people who claim to follow Christ but share their faith in a way that completely contradicts Jesus’ message and manner. This happens even with well-meaning, kind-hearted, Christians. They want their friends and family to know Jesus Christ, but they fall into unhealthy patterns of sharing the faith, patterns that push people away from God rather than draw people near. I want to begin by saying that I understand. Sharing the Christian faith is hard.

What is Philippians 4:13 talking about?

I really get a little upset when people say, “proof texting” when discussing a subject.  By this they mean picking and choosing verses to make a point.   Now, I do think that it is wrong to find verses that will agree with your preconceived notions or an opinion.  Often Christians (even non-believers) will find a verse out of context that makes a point the verse was never meant to make.  But, sadly it has got to the point that I am often in debates and the person who doesn’t like my reference and will say, “Don’t proof text me.”    I am here to tell you the ‘proof’ is in the ‘text’ and we need to realize this.  In other words, taken in its proper context, as the writer intended (as best as we can determine), and used in the context that applies we can “proof-text.”

There’s Never a ‘Good’ Time to Plant a Church

“If you could do it all over again, would you?” That sounds like a question you might ask someone who’s just been convicted of a crime, and it’s one I was asked recently. My alleged crime? Sending out 37 of our best members, along with two of our best elders, to plant a church. We can always find reasons, even good ones, for not planting a church. And yet, the need for churches in my city (Austin, Texas) far outweighs whatever adverse effects we may face. Really? Another Church? We didn’t plant another church because attendance had us bursting at the seams. We still have plenty of room in our building. We didn’t plant because we possess abundant financial resources. We have overwhelming debt that hangs like a millstone around our necks. We planted a church for pastoral and evangelistic reasons. First, we had a significant number of members driving from northwest Austin to church each week, a 30-minute drive at minimum. When members live that far away, it’s hard to “shepherd the flock of God among you” (1 Pet. 5:2). We struggled to foster gospel community, since distance was a logistical obstacle.

There's No Good Reason to Deny the Early Dating of the Gospels | Cold Case Christianity

The gospels also contain many descriptions of miracles. The philosophical naturalist must also deny the truthfulness of these supernatural accounts. Skeptics, therefore, date the gospel accounts very late, arguing that eyewitnesses to these events were already dead and unavailable to deny the claims. It turns out that the presupposition of philosophical naturalism is at work in the minds of those who would deny the early dating of the gospels. When this presuppositional bias is removed, the remaining evidence confirms that the gospels were written in the lifetimes of the eyewitnesses.

43 A Wrinkle in Time and Otherworldly Love | Think Christian

Better than the dialogue, however, is the way the filmmakers envision this sense of being beloved. (Spoilers ahead.) A Wrinkle in Time is often discussed as an unfilmable book, given L’Engle’s expansive imagination, yet aside from a few CGI-heavy missteps, DuVernay and her team manage to evoke its sense of endless wonder. In one scene, Meg is trapped in a strange white room, unable to see a way out. But then she dons a pair of glasses given to her by Mrs. Who and suddenly the other dimensions at work in the space appear, like blueprints. It’s an echo of her father’s words—that love exists even when you can’t feel it. And, indeed, the “invisible” staircase she discovers leads her to him.

Why Would a Good God Behave So Badly? | Cold Case Christianity

I have many unbelieving friends who laugh when I claim the God of the Bible is both all-powerful and all-loving. As they read through the Old Testament, they point to a variety of passages and episodes where God seems to be anything but loving. They cite passages, for example, where God seems to command the pillaging and killing of Israel’s enemies with great brutality. How can a God who would command the brutal destruction of Israel’s enemies be called moral or loving? It’s easy for us to judge the words and actions of God as if He were just another human, subject to an objective standard transcending Him . But when we judge God’s actions in this way, we are ignoring His unique authority and power. While great work has been done by Paul Copan ( Is God a Moral Monster?: Making Sense of the Old Testament God ), describing the proper context of these passages in the Old Testament, and by Clay Jones ( Killing the Canaanites: A Response to the New Atheism’s “Divine Genocide” Claims ), describing the view God held toward the sin of Israel’s neighbors, I would like to add the following

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.
