Apologetics is Unassuming

But the problem with this definition is this doesn’t uniquely pick out the discipline. After all, the systematic theologian seems to be defending Christian beliefs when he or she defends a particular doctrine. A Sunday morning sermon is seems even to be a defense of Christian beliefs. The pastor provides reasons for how to understand a passage and how it should be applied in our lives. So this definition isn’t going to work.

Can You Be Gay and Christian? | The Stream

Yes, it does; and it occasionally happens. For example, a person who has divorced and remarried while the former spouse is still living could not be absolved unless he or she resolved to live as brother and sister with the current spouse, or until the former marriage was proven to be sacramentally invalid. (The impediments to entering a sacramentally valid marriage are very clear. You can Google to see what they are.) The reason, of course, is that the Lord Himself said that a valid marriage is indissoluble, and I can remember well the days when the Protestant denomination I grew up in refused to perform second marriages. The evidence of repentance is the resolution with the help of Christ’s grace to cease committing the sin. Having said that, we must also say that while we believe the Lord always works through the sacraments, He is sovereign and is not limited by them. It is we humans who are limited. From the human standpoint we remember that Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commandments.” Our question as Catholics would be “Do I really love the Lord if

Abbreviated Christianity and Christian Case Making

At some point in my life about 18 years ago, I decided to surrender my presuppositions and follow the evidence where it led. It didn’t happen in a day, but over a period of months as I slowly investigated the claims of the gospel writers. I eventually came to call myself a “Christian”. But the process that brought me into the Christian family of believers, the methodical investigation of the evidence, soon became a part of my life as a believer. It wasn’t long before I found myself sharing what I learned with the people in my world. I retraced my own investigative steps for anyone who would sit still long enough to listen. I think I drove my atheist friends crazy with this behavior; they had known me as a vocal (and rather angry) skeptic for many years. I’m sure I also tested the patience of my wife; the Christian evidences were all I talked about for many years. It wasn’t enough that I was now a Christian after 35 years of unbelief. I was determined to defend what I believed and share the evidence with others. I was becoming a “Christian Case Maker”.

Many Christians tend to think of the Trinity as an impractical, speculative doctrine. But not so the Lord Jesus. For Him, it is neither speculative nor impractical—but the very reverse. It is the foundation of the gospel. https://www.ligonier.org/blog/deep-theology/ …

My History Teacher Says 'The Gospels Are Unreliable'

But sometimes all this seems to go out the window. When it comes to talking about Jesus, your otherwise rigorous history teacher dismisses the Gospels in a moment. They say they can’t be trusted, they’re unreliable sources that tell us little about what really happened. If you have a teacher like this, you’ll know it can be frustrating, and difficult to challenge. What do you say?

My Little Tin Bucket | Blog & Mablog

I wanted to write a quick something about the Kevin Williamson uproar, and then, Lord willing, write something later about the complicated nature of abortion laws and penology. Maybe Monday for that. When I write on Monday, I will be standing there, as per usual, my little tin bucket filled to overflowing with qualification and nuance, while at the same time exhibiting a rock-ribbed allegiance to the absolutes of biblical law. This is not an easy task because it can sometimes be slippery standing in the slop of all that nuance.

No, You Don't Need to Be an Expert

I know I’m not the only one who’s felt this way after listening to an apologetic debate or talk. I mean, listen to how well these people know their science, philosophy, and history! You think to yourself, “How on earth do these people know this much!?” Because of the seemingly “great knowledge” these apologists have, it’s easy for us to walk away thinking, “If only I knew what they knew, then I’d be a good Christian,” or “If only I could talk the way they did, then I’d be able to lead people to Jesus.”

Why Must God’s Justice Be Satisfied?

Because God cannot cease to be either merciful or just, His justice requires that each and every one of our sins we have committed against His infinite majesty be punished with temporal and eternal punishments of soul and body. We hear that threat in the garden: “In the day that you eat of [the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil] you shall surely die” (Gen. 2:17). We hear that threat in the New Testament: “The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 6:23).

These posts are designed to model what our answers might look like in a one-on-one setting, while talking to a friend or family member.

Historical Bias, Objectivity, and the Truth of Christianity

Bias is probably the most popular objection to knowing history. It is claimed by some that historians are biased. It is not always clear what the objection is really getting at, but usually it is something like the historian holds certain views that in some way make his reporting subjective or unfair. For example, an historian may be writing about a religious issue and if he is part of that religion he is likely going to be accused of being biased. The disciples are often said to be biased regarding the events of the life of Jesus, particularly his resurrection. Since they knew him and had a vested interest they must have made up the claims of the resurrection.

Why No One Should Be Surprised That A Killer Is Living Under Their Roof | Cold Case Christianity

When you arrest a serial killer and interview his neighbors, they’ll typically say something like, “Wow, I am so glad you took that guy to jail. He was weird. I always suspected he was up to no good. I heard strange noises and smelled strange odors over there all the time.” But when you take a cold-case murderer to jail, his neighbor will typically say, “No way! I’ve known that guy for a dozen years. He’s watched my kids and we hang out all the time. There’s no way he could have committed a murder.” How can regular people who’ve lived good, decent lives for decades be capable of committing a horrific murder, years earlier? If you’re a Christian, you may already know the answer. I certainly do, because the cold-case killers I’ve investigated confirm the Biblical description of humans.

Are We Proclaiming a Hell We Don’t Deserve—and a Christ We Do?

I taught twice on the doctrine of hell recently and both times it ended in tears—mine. I remember the second time vividly. At the end of the class, an older woman who had walked with God for many years approached me with a somber face. She had a question about her mother and as she spoke, she began to cry. She wanted to know whether her mother was in hell. What could I say? I told her what most Christians say in such moments. I said that we never know what happens in the final moments of a person’s life, that I didn’t know where her mother was. That’s true. I didn’t know. None of us does. Then I told her something else: “But this is what I do know. I know that if she is in hell, it is just. And I know God would be just if he sent you and me there, too. Because that’s what our sin deserves.” With a gravity I won’t forget, she nodded slowly and we hugged, now both crying at the weight of it all. How Do We Think About Hell? I’m convinced the way we think about hell is always a reflection of how we think about sin and, in turn, how we think about Christ. Problem is, it’s all too easy for Christians to think of hell as something “out there,” something other people deserve—people who don’t think like us or vote like us or live like us.

Refuting the "No Body" Theory of The Resurrection

Paul believed in a complete transformation of all creation at the return of Christ. He saw the Christian's lot as shared with that of Christ. "If we share in his death we shall also share in his resurrection." (Romans 6). The resurrection of the dead, for Paul, was a culmination of a process through which "all of nature groans for liberation." The transforming power of God would change all those in Christ, "we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in the twinkling of eye, at the last trump..." The fleshly body would be transformed into a "resurrection body," spirit, "glorified," but a body and tangible and made of a subsubstance none the less. Tabor argues that for Paul the atonement was participatory, we share in Christ's death through baptism (Rom 6) and thus, we also share in his resurrection, new life, and future, through baptism and through the regenerative act that comes from it. Merely sharing is not the link to glorification, since we also share in his death, but it leads to the shared glorified nature of the resurrection body, which all shall obtain at Christ's return.

5 friends every pastor needs — Southern Equip

However, if you spend time with a non–seminary friend, you’ll be reminded that the pastorate is far from the only profession that steals sleep. For example, your businessman friend might tell you about the list of people corporate told him to lay off a couple weeks before Christmas. And not unlike some of the burdens you carry, he can’t seem to shake their faces or situations while sitting at the dinner table with his family. Or if you think that former denominational worker was difficult to deal with, wait until your banking friend tells you about the manipulative tactics a group of unbelievers came up with in their ongoing office wars.

BreakPoint: Toys R Us to Close Down

The immigration “problem,” as you put it, is a complex one. Drawing so many from third world countries is more likely to add to the welfare rolls than the tax rolls. In the early part of the last century most immigrants coming legally were looking for a second chance or better opportunities, for a hand up, not a hand-out. And they worked hard and assimilated into society, making their own way. Then policies changed and it was apparent that “our elites” were more interested in adding to democratic party voting rolls.
