How To Argue From the Biblical Text for a Local-Regional Flood Instead of a Global Flood - Dr. Michael Heiser

I’ve gotten this question before in podcast Q & A, but I was reminded of it today when someone posted this article on Facebook, aimed at “flood geology”: Twenty-One Reasons Noah’s Worldwide Flood Never Happened. It’s by a retired geology professor. I don’t understand the science as I’m not a geologist, but I do know biblical …

William Lane Craig explains why even atheist historians like Gerd Ludemann accept that the earliest followers of Jesus had experiences in which Jesus appeared to them as resurrected Lord. Excerpt: …

Introduction to Apologetics

The Church has always maintained that in scripture we have the embodiment of divine revelation – God’s Word to man. It is God communicating to man concerning Himself, man’s lost condition, God’s love, how man might be saved (redemption), warning of impending judgment for those rejecting His love, and the warfare with Satan in the battle for the souls of men.

How Atheist Hate & Mockery Led a Richard Dawkins Fan, Richard Morgan, to Faith

Richard Morgan was born in a tiny village in North Wales. He went to college in Nottingham, and lived and taught, as a music teacher, in Nottingham and Manchester. He then moved to Toulouse, France in 1984. There he became an English teacher. What is striking about his conversion story is how he was converted to Christianity on Richard Dawkins’ website, a place where one wouldn’t expect to find such conversions (1).

Skeptics Can’t Have It Both Ways

And the ‘can’t have it both ways argument’ is a problem for apologists too – if there is no free will conflict with God killing children and babies for crimes they would go on to commit, then why NOT stop Hitler at birth? Why would a fire be needed to kill baby Hitler? God could have simply prevented Hitler being born in the first place. His mother had miscarried several times before Adolf arrived, so it’s not like God had an issue with killing off members of that family.

What Is a Kind Husband?

So, what is a kind husband? As we see the ideal of a husband’s kindness displayed by Boaz, we also should fill out our understanding of that kindness from the teaching of the Bible elsewhere. We are perhaps too accustomed to the phraseology of the Pauline command to love our wives, and so it might help us to think of this central duty in terms of kindness .

Please Make a Mess of Your Bible | Cold Case Christianity

Now go take a look at your Bible. Is it a colorful mess? Is it filled with notes and highlights and investigative diagrams? Why not? When I first got interested in the words of Jesus, I invested as little as I could and purchased a six dollar pew Bible. I looked for one that had the largest possible margins. I knew how I was going to treat it, and I kept it to remind myself of the investigative passion that I’ve always had for the Scripture. Do you own a Bible that reflects your investigative passion? Start thinking like a detective and go make a mess of your Bible.

What If Evil Does Befall Me?

First, I needed to rethink my definition of evil and even of rescue and deliverance . Evil may indeed befall us, as “the whole world lies in the power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19). Job hoped for good, but evil came (Job 30:26). Yet the evil that can befall us is temporary; its effects are limited to this life. The worst evil, which is eternal separation from God, will never come near us. And even in this life, what man means for evil, God intends for our good (Genesis 50:20).

No Cremation — But Should I Gift My Body to Science?

Here is the conclusion. I would not put donation, motivated in these ways, in the same category with cremation. Which leads me to one last pressing question, which Nikki didn’t ask, but I must: Then should all of us donate our bodies to medical science? And my short answer is: No. And here is my thinking. There are many family issues that need to be taken into account among others. For example, are there young children involved who just lost a mommy or a daddy who need to process the death of a parent differently than thinking they are being carved up at the university? A grave to visit may be very, very important.

This Is How Christians Can Achieve Unity

Why is it that so many believers have such a wide spectrum of belief systems in general, as well as seem to disagree on so many things? If it's really all about knowing Him personally and about having our Lord direct our lives by the power and wisdom of His Holy Spirit, why is there arguing in Christian marriages, homes, churches and such differing opinions and differing points of view. If the Son of God is truly living and alive in our hearts then why do we disagree so much about the color of the carpet, the style of music the choir sings, how long the pastors sermon should be or what the youth group does?

God is not a genie Just because we pray, that doesn’t mean we get whatever we want. If every prayer were answered, we’d be spoiled brats. If you’re a parent, do you give your children everything they ask for? Probably not. As an adult, you know what’s best for them. You can see the bigger picture. If we can see the bigger picture for our kids, how much bigger is the picture that God can see for us?

Consider Each Other How to Stir Up Love

Let’s read it. Verse 24: “Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds.” Here is the focus for your life. Here is what you aim at from morning till night as a Christian. Notice carefully: it is not what you might expect. It is not: consider how to love each other and do good deeds. That would be Biblical and right. But it’s different: “Consider how to stimulate each other to love and good deeds.” Focus on helping others become loving people. Aim at stirring up others to do good deeds. And of course the implication would also be that if others need help and stirring, we do too, and so we would be aiming at what sorts of ways we can think and feel and talk and act that will stir each other up to love and to do good deeds. The aim of our lives is not just loving and doing good deeds, but helping to stir up others to love and to good deeds.

The Theology Beneath the Trump-Comey Conflict

Niebuhr’s writings supply a moral argument for Comey’s aggressive assertion of the FBI’s power—some describe him as the most aggressive FBI director since Hoover himself. His influence also sheds light on another side of Comey’s conduct as FBI director. Niebuhr noted that while humans can’t change the animal nature that makes them so selfish, they can achieve a kind of freedom from their situation by becoming self-conscious, by recognizing the truth about themselves. Comey has sought to institutionalize such self-awareness in the FBI through programs that encourage FBI trainees to learn about Hoover’s mistreatment of Martin Luther King Jr. and the complicity of law enforcement in the Holocaust.

How Do I Take My Thoughts Captive?

So verse 5 is not a command to do this work ourselves, but Sarah’s question is still a very good question. There is a way to apply this to ourselves. We just have to get ourselves in the right place, and the place we belong in is the group whose opinions and thoughts Paul is trying to demolish. That is where we belong. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive.

The Story of Reality: An Interview with Gregory Koukl

Gregory Koukl: First, I wanted to offer a kind of primer on Christianity’s basics—the essential elements—but I didn’t want to write a theological textbook. Rather, I wanted to show how the important pieces fit together in a fascinating drama—a story, of sorts. I also wanted the reader to enjoy the journey, so I adopted a storytelling “voice” for the narrative. I wanted anyone who picked up the book to feel I was talking directly with them; that I was personally walking them through the account of how the world began, how it ends, and everything important that happens in between.

Alexander Vilenkin: 'All the evidence we have says that the universe had a beginning'

Did the cosmos have a beginning? The Big Bang theory seems to suggest it did, but in recent decades, cosmologists have concocted elaborate theories – for example, an eternally inflating universe or a cyclic universe – which claim to avoid the need for a beginning of the cosmos. Now it appears that the universe really had a beginning after all, even if it wasn’t necessarily the Big Bang.

The Difference Between Speaking the Gospel and Sharing the Gospel

Not long ago, I found myself listening patiently as Mark, a friend of mine, described a difficult conversation he had with a non-believer named Cindy. Mark said he met Cindy at a party and intentionally directed the conversation toward spiritual matters; he hoped to share the gospel with her at some point in the evening. When Cindy learned Mark was a Christian, however, she became very defensive and eventually told him that she was disgusted with Christians and their pro-life position related to abortion. Cindy believed that women should have a right to choose. Mark was prepared to talk about the Gospel but unequipped to navigate the issue of abortion. He was undeterred, however, in his desire to talk about Jesus and the salvation offered on the cross. He pressed on, even though Cindy repeatedly ignored his presentation and grew ever more frustrated as Mark refused to address her concerns about abortion. I wish I could say the story had a happy ending, but Cindy grew so irritated with Mark that she eventually excused herself and avoided him for the rest of the party. Mark told me that he was disappointed Cindy refused to talk with him any further, but he said, “At least she got to hear the Gospel.

(Design advocates appreciate the Grants for their findings that undermine neo-Darwinism , although they would not see it that way.)

Books - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

Correct, Not Politically Correct: How Same Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone Why not legalize same-sex marriage? Who could it possibly hurt? Using sound reasoning and evidence—not religion—award-winning author Frank Turek shows that everyone will be hurt including children, the nation, and even homosexuals themselves. Turek provides concise answers to objections about equal rights, discrimination, and being born a certain way, and he exposes the real reason gay activists are trying to impose same-sex marriage on the country without a single vote from the people. Turek’s message is direct but respectful. It is correct, not politically correct. And it is a message that we must not ignore. For details, see ImpactApologetics.com .

Gecko: Designed to Climb

They discover that the gecko is designed to climb. Scientists had to magnify the gecko’s foot thousands of times to find out its secret to defying gravity. Gecko feet are covered with ridges composed of millions of hairs called setae. Each hair splits up into hundreds of tiny hair ends. Scientists believe that the branching hairs use special forces to attract the hairs to the surface. The attraction, mostly attributed to the van der Waals force, is so powerful that the gecko can hang by one toe from a ceiling.
