1 The Case for Christ Study Bible: Investigating the Evidence for Belief - Kindle edition by Lee Strobel. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @

Have you ever heard Scripture's truths but wondered where to find those truths in the Scriptures? Or have you ever wondered where to find evidence for belief in God in the Bible? You're not alone. Millions of people have asked these same questions, including Lee Strobel -- an atheist who engaged in a thorough search for the truth to decide for himself if Jesus was who he claimed to be. Drawn from Lee's own experiences as a former atheist and featuring his journalistic style from his days as an investigative reporter with the Chicago Tribune, the notes and articles throughout The Case for Christ Study Bible are designed to motivate you to investigate the Bible's claims for yourself. Whether you are a Christian seeking encouragement in your faith and knowledge about who God is or a seeker or skeptic searching for answers, you will benefit from Lee's own extensive search for the truth. Some of the excellent study notes found in this Bible include: The Case for Christ Articles Over 220 The Case for Christ notes explore Jesus' claims and deity and demonstrate that he is the Messiah. The Case for the Bible Notes More than 170 The Case for the Bible notes explore the character of the Bible and the extra-biblical evidence that corroborates Scripture as well as explain apparent contradictions within the Bible.

The Evidentially Diverse Resurrection Appearances of Jesus (Free Bible Insert) - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

An agreement about the same event that is confirmed by three independent witnesses who are discussing what took place is as affirmative as it can possibly be and purely not circular. In Galatians 1:18 Paul describes going up to Jerusalem to give his testimony that included seeing the resurrected Jesus Christ to Peter and James (Jacob). These two apostles then praised God because of Paul and because all three were in agreement together. The experience of James also provides independent proof of the resurrection. James who was the half brother of Jesus Christ did not believe in Christ’s deity until after he witnessed that his brother had been resurrected from the dead. 1 Corinthians 15:7. James was thoroughly convinced by seeing the resurrected Christ. After that he became the leader of the Christian Church in Jerusalem and was later stoned there as a martyr.

Faithful Thinkers: Book Review: The Bible Among The Myths

Chapter 2: The Bible and Myth: A Problem of Definition Many people want to classify the Bible as myth. However many definitions for "myth" exist. If one is to place the Bible in a mythical category, it must be determined which one. Oswalt takes the reader through many different definitions that can all be classified into two primary types: historical-philosophical and phenomenological. The first defines myths by truth value or function value of the story, while the second focuses merely on ascribing human characteristics to nature to explain it. Oswalt compares the purposes and philosophies of the different definitions. He explains that some of the definitions are so broad that they include stories that are not accepted as myths, while others are so restrictive that they exclude stories that are accepted as myths, but they all capture some elements of myths, so it is difficult to determine which one is the best. Oswalt, though, believes that landing on a single definition is not necessary to determine if the Bible truly is myth. Rather it can be determined if necessary characteristics that are common to all the definitions can be identified and shown to be either present or not in the Bible.


A celebration of Christ's resurrection, Easter marks Christ's triumph over death and, as the Apostle Peter writes, our "new birth into a living hope." It's a time to reflect on salvation, redemption, and the future coming of Christ's kingdom.

Eight signs of fearful leadership

Reticence to move people off the bus. No one should enjoy firing people. No one should enjoy telling a volunteer that he or she is no longer needed in a position. But for the sake of the organization, some people need to be moved off the bus. The fearful leader will let persons stay on the bus well beyond their effectiveness because they fear confrontation, and because they fear making a wrong decision.

What Christians Get Wrong About the Easter Story

For much of my life, the climax of the Passion narrative, Lent and Easter put together, has been the Cross. The Cross is the place of salvation, the place where sin is forgiven, the place where Christ ransomed the world from the powers of death and darkness and atoned for us. That was, in my mind, the climax of the story. Yes, something really awesome happened with the resurrection, but I have heard so much through songs and theology that I should “cling to the Cross.” This Lent however, I began to grow frustrated with this looking at the Cross. I decided that I wanted to begin living as if I should “cling to the resurrection,” but this also is missing the big picture.

Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{ dr.dodofreedonlovespellcaster@hotmail.


The Cross defines what love’s entailments are. You see, in Christian terms, love does not stand merely as an emotion or even as an expression to just be reconciled to God. In a relationship with God, love ultimately flowers into worship. All earthly relationships as we know them will someday end. It is in worship alone that wonder and truth coalesce, prefiguring the consummation of eternal communion. That enrichment from worship feeds all other relationships and helps us to hold sacred all of life’s needed commitments.

Religious conservatives are the targets of discrimination, lawyer says

His observations offer an up-close look at one side of the issue that provoked a national uproar when lawmakers in Indiana and Arkansas approved legislation that they argue was designed to protect religious freedoms. The laws were widely criticized as measures that would allow for discrimination against gays and lesbians who could be denied goods and services in the name of religious belief. Many conservative backers of the law were opposed to same-sex marriage. Arkansas also took up the issue.

Back from the Dead? Heard It Before.

Jesus’ resurrection isn’t just one important resurrection story among several in the Bible. He’s the first of a new kind of resurrection. Which may be why everyone seems to be so confused when they meet the resurrected Christ. Remember: Jesus’ disciples had seen people come back from the dead before. They had seen Jesus raise Jairus’s daughter. They knew Lazarus personally. But Jesus coming back? That was different. His resurrection was not like the others. Examine, for example, the attention John’s gospel gives to the difference between Lazarus coming out of the tomb bound in his burial clothes and Jesus leaving the tomb with his “linen cloths lying there, and the face cloth . . . folded up in a place by itself.”

Acts 17: Was Jesus' Tomb Found Empty after His Death and Burial?

The most important historical evidence for Jesus' resurrection concerns (1) his death by crucifixion, and (2) his numerous appearances later. Since Jesus was dead, and was alive again later, it seems we are confronted with a miracle, and Christianity has a kind of divine confirmation unknown to other religions. One additional corroborating detail is that his tomb was found empty shortly after his crucifixion. The empty tomb narrations help rule out the claim that Jesus' appearances were mystical experiences or hallucinations. Jesus' tomb was empty because resurrection (Gk., anastasis ) involves the supernatural restoration of the body.

Christ’s Labor on the Cross

In the ancient world, a woman in labor did not lie numbed while her baby was taken from her body by scalpel or forceps; as Isaiah suggests, she (like women the world over today) groaned and strained and bellowed and struggled her baby into the light. I have always loved the Spanish words for giving birth— dar a la luz, “give to the light,” which suggest to me something like springtime and resurrection.

Sitting, Waiting, and Hoping in the Tomb of Jesus

A medieval theologian, Anselm, once described the kind of faith that comes with Saturday— fides quaerens intellectum : “faith seeking understanding.” By that, he meant that faith isn’t something that arises after moments of understanding. Rather, faith is something that you cling to when understanding and reason lay dead. We don’t believe once we understand it—we believe in order to understand it. Saturday’s like that: offering a day of waiting, a day of ambiguity, a day when God is sovereign even if our ideas and theologies and expectations about him are not. It is the day that our ignorance is our witness and our proclamation. Truth is, our intellect will always be one step behind in our love of God. We don’t love God once we understand him; we love God in order to understand him.

For the Church: Singing No More the Grave

“ No More the Grave” from Glory to the Holy One gives doxological expression to the benefits of Christ’s resurrection. Stanza one presents historical facts which testify to Christ’s resurrection. The remainder provides substantive doctrinal food for thought which loosely resembles the Heidelberg Catechism 45 in its thematic sequence. “First, by His resurrection He has overcome death, so that He might make us share in the righteousness He won for us by His death. Second, by His power we too are already now resurrected to a new life. Third, Christ’s resurrection is a guarantee of our glorious resurrection.”

A Conservative Case Against Big Business

As Catherine Rampell noted at The  Washington Post : “Even Wal-Mart, not exactly known for its liberal values, came out against comparable legislation in its home state, saying it ‘sends the wrong message about Arkansas.’” Apple CEO Tim Cook’s public condemnation of the religious liberty laws was far less surprising. But even here, we see troubling hints about Senator Rand Paul’s quixotic promise of bringing techies and Millennials—blocs of voters that are supposedly libertarian-leaning—into the fold. Good luck with that. When push comes to shove, these voters will disproportionally pull the lever for Hillary—both to make history, and because they will be told that the Republican nominee—yes, even if it’s Rand!—is a bigot. The promise that the GOP can merely tweak its image and find new allies is a long shot, at best—and surely not one worth betraying its old allies—social conservatives.


Dr. Sproul discusses the "Evangelicals and Catholics Together" document. There is further discussion on the imputation of Adam's sin to the entire race with investigation into the consequence and universality of original sin and of death. This section ends with an overview of covenant theology and the covenant of works.

Do You Think It Happened, Or Not?

The resurrection is the hinge on which all of Christianity turns. It’s the foundation on which everything else rests, the capstone that holds everything else about Christianity together. Which means—crucially—that when Christians assert that Jesus rose from the dead, they are making a historical claim, not a religious one. Yes of course there are “religious” implications to that claim, if you want to call them that, but none of those is in the least valid if Jesus didn’t really, truly, historically come back to life from the dead. Even the early Christians understood this point. They weren’t interested in just creating a nice religious story that would encourage people, help them live better lives, and perhaps provide them with a metaphor of hope blooming out of despair that might help them endure the storms of this life. No, the early Christians wanted the world to know that they really believed that Jesus had gotten up out of the grave, and they themselves knew that if he didn’t really do that, then everything they stood for was empty and false and utterly worthless.

What do skeptical ancient historians think of the earliest Christian creed?

That Jesus’ followers (and later Paul) had resurrection experiences is, in my judgment, a fact. What the reality was that gave rise to the experiences I do not know. “I do not regard deliberate fraud as a worthwhile explanation. Many of the people in these lists were to spend the rest of their lives proclaiming that they had seen the risen Lord, and several of them would die for their cause. Moreover, a calculated deception should have produced great unanimity. Instead, there seem to have been competitors: ‘I saw him first!’ ‘No! I did.’ Paul’s tradition that 500 people saw Jesus at the same time has led some people to suggest that Jesus’ followers suffered mass hysteria. But mass hysteria does not explain the other traditions.” “Finally we know that after his death his followers experienced what they described as the ‘resurrection’: the appearance of a living but transformed person who had actually died. They believed this, they lived it, and they died for it. (14)

Daniel Slavich seeks cross-cultural reconciliation in South Florida

In March 2009, Slavich began serving as lead pastor of Pembroke Road Baptist Church in Miramar, Florida, located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Pembroke Road was a 50-year-old church in decline when Slavich arrived. The area around the church was “transitioning from an emerging white suburb to a lower-income minority community,” he said, and this affected the decline of the church.

Three Christian misconceptions about Muslims (Part 2)

You might ask, “But isn’t the Islamic God  so   different  from the Christian God that they cannot properly be called by the same name?” Perhaps. The question about whether to say that “Allah” refers to the wrong God (or to wrong ideas about the right God) is a highly nuanced one, and there’s not an easy answer. There is no doubt that Muslims believe blasphemous things about God, and their beliefs about Allah grew out of a distorted view of Christianity. The same could be said, though to a lesser degree, of the view of God of the first-century Sadducees, as well as the Samaritan woman, and (to an  even  lesser degree) the fifth-century Pelagian heretics—not to mention a lot of the medieval Scholastics.

Is love more about accepting a woman as she is, or growing her into something better?

I have always tried to apply this verse when dealing with women, and even when mentoring men. In my relationships, I try to listen to the woman’s story and then try to think of where she is trying to get to in her life as a Christian. To help her along, I try to engineer activities that will allow her to grow in strength and confidence by achieving better and better things. There is no shortcut to confidence based on mere words, you have to help her do hard things so she has the experiences of feeling scared, failing, practicing more, then finally succeeding. Although a woman might think that it’s fine to study English for a year, then drop out and sit around the house drinking beer and watching TV, a good man will not think that’s acceptable. If a man loves a woman, then he wants to build her up into something nice for God. And in truth, that will be more fulfilling for her in the long run, although it might conflict with her feelings in the short run.

'Sensible Christian thing to look after own first,' claims Farage – Premier Premier

The UKIP leader Nigel Farage has stood by his comments about the treatment of foreign-born HIV sufferers saying it was a "sensible Christian thing to look after your family and your own community first".


Niech Pan opisze choć jeden. Proszę bardzo. Moja koleżanka, ważna dyrektor finansowa jednej z dużych amerykańskich korporacji, była w jednej z wież World Trade Center 11 września 2001 r. W chwili, gdy pierwszy samolot uderzył w jedną z wież WTC, znajdowała się na jednym z najwyższych pięter drugiego budynku. Prze okno zobaczyła, jak boeing wlatuje w wieżę - i natychmiast, jak pozostałe osoby na jej piętrze, ruszyła po schodach w dół. Schodziła razem z kolegą, który próbował z komórki dodzwonić się do żony, by jej powiedzieć, że nic mu nie grozi. Telefon jednak nie działał - pewnie ściany w klatce schodowej były zbyt grube i nie było sygnału. Oboje zeszli na pięćdziesiąte któreś piętro - i wtedy ten kolega powiedział: wejdę do budynku i z niego spróbuję połączyć się z żoną. Moja koleżanka poszła bezwiednie za nim, do jednej z sal konferencyjnych w jakimś biurze. Nagle, idąc, usłyszała głos: Nie idź za nim. Ktoś był na tym piętrze? Pomyślała o tym samym. Zatrzymała się i zaczęła rozglądać - nikogo nie było. Ale ona wiedziała, do kogo należał ten głos. Nie miała wątpliwości, że to był Bóg.
