Apologetics and Ratio Christi Kept Me from Leaving Christianity

“Apologetics and RC saved me from leaving the faith after high school,” he says. “I had experienced a couple years of extreme doubt and had decided that if I couldn't find any answers with this club then I would be done with Christianity.”

Reason and Logic flow from God's Being

The Laws of Logic: Laws of thought and reason that are immaterial, aspatial, universal, obligatory, necessary, immutable, and absolute. Some academics identify them as the laws of thought, the laws of truth, or the laws of reason. Various scholars strongly prefer to name them the laws of logic because they are independent of human minds and are ubiquitous throughout all experience. All rational thinking (and communication) presupposes and uses the laws of logic. The Law of Identity (LOI) is A=A. The most well-known law is the Law of Non-contradiction (LNC): A cannot be A and Non-A at the same time in the same way (A~~A). A man cannot be his own father. The laws of logic “are basic principles of reasoning” (Frame: CVT). The laws of logic reflect the nature and mind of the God of the Bible; thus, they have ontological grounding—that is, they are grounded in the very nature of truth itself and cannot be reduced to human convention, opinion or psychology. Without these laws, knowledge and rational thinking are impossible. To deny the laws of logic, one must use these laws in one’s attempt to deny them.

How Satan Gets a Hold on You

No. Because when it comes to good and evil, God wants us “to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil” (Romans 16:19). Our best protection against demons is less preoccupation with them and more preoccupation with God — less understanding of deception and more understanding of truth.

Burning Hearts Are Not Nourished by Empty Heads

What do you read first when the newspaper arrives? I dive for the sports pages—an involuntary reflex action left over from a youth spent with visions of Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers dancing in my head. The child within me still suffers more anxiety over league standings than the Falkland Islands. Old reading habits die hard. It is the same with Christian magazines and periodicals. When I first began reading Christianity Today, two columns hooked me quickly. One was "Eutychus and His Kin," the other, "Current Religious Thought." I still go first to "Current Religious Thought," for I know I will encounter some vignettes of intellectual insight to nourish my too-empty head.

Why Winning the Lottery Is Dangerous

Past lottery winners seem to understand that. The New Hampshire winner of February’s 559.7 million-dollar Powerball jackpot, for example, went to court recently in an effort to keep her name anonymous. Her attorney explained her concern: “She is a longtime resident of New Hampshire and is an engaged community member… She wishes to continue this work and the freedom to walk into a grocery store or attend public events without being known or targeted as the winner of a half-billion dollars.” That’s an understandable concern, given what’s happened to past lottery winners.

How do we Know who Wrote the Gospels?

It’s common to hear scholars suggest that we don’t know who wrote the four gospels. They say that the gospels are anonymous, and that the church didn’t add titles till the end of the second century. It is true that none of the gospels tell us the author’s name in the body of the text. The closest is John’s Gospel where the writer states, “This (the one whom Jesus loves) is the disciple who testifies to these things, and who wrote them down” (Jn 21:24).

Is God Finished With Israel? | The Stream

Genesis 17:8 is not a promise of the land of Israel. The “land” is referred to as an “everlasting possession”. As such, it cannot speak of the land of Israel since the Bible makes plain the heavens and this earth will be done away with (2 Peter 3:10-13, Matt 24:35, Psalm 102:26, Revelation 21:1). Genesis 17:7-8 speaks of the promise of the new creation (various commentators argue in favor of heaven) in connection with the new covenant which God said “I will establish” which he did in Christ, an “everlasting covenant”. You are correct in saying that it is a one-way covenant, God accomplishing it himself in Christ (Galatians 3:20) for Abraham’s seed, believers in Christ (Galatians 3:29, Romans 4:13). Its worth noting that Hebrews 11:8-10 demonstrates that Abraham “sojourned in the land of promise” yet the inheritance toward which he, Isaac, and Jacob looked was “a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God”. (Galatians 4:26)

Three Keys to Thriving at College | The Stream

Before going to college, take stock of any intellectual roadblocks to the faith you may be struggling with. It could be materialistic evolution, the problem of evil (how a good God can allow it), or the Bible’s reliability. Thankfully, there are good answers to the common objections to Christianity you’ll encounter from your biology or philosophy professor, or the skeptic down the hall. Either study these issues in advance, or have a pastor friend or parent you can call upon. Christianity is a faith that’s rooted in actual events that occurred in history. It can withstand even intense scrutiny.

Is Your Transformational, Religious Experience Evidence Enough?

I just finished a wonderful weekend at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, Arkansas . This is a large, active church with an innovative and visionary leadership team . They invited me to speak to their members because they understand the growing skepticism in our culture; they’re eager to prepare younger members to defend what they believe and to equip older members to better share the truth. Our sessions were well attended and energetic. After one talk, a frustrated sister in Christ (I’ll call her Jan) told me about a recent exchange she had with a friend who believed in God but rejected Jesus. In past efforts to share her faith, Jan relied on her own relationship with Jesus and her testimony of transformation. But when she took this approach with her friend, she discovered she wasn’t the only person who had a transformational experience. Jan’s friend shared her own relational experience with God and her own testimony of transformation. Jan found herself at a stand-off: personal testimony vs. personal testimony. She discovered her transformational experience simply wasn’t evidence enough.

Three Powerful Passages that Prove Jesus is God

There are extensive scholarly debates about the claim that Jesus is God. My goal in this post is not to enter into those debates. Here, the goal is simply to highlight three of my favorite New Testament passages that teach the deity of Jesus. These three passages are easy to remember, and share, with those who ask (see 1 Peter 3:15 ).

I Believe in the Evolution of Life and the Evolution of Automobiles | Evolution News

As I argue in my 2016   book  Christianity for Doubters , which can now be downloaded in its entirety  here , this is actually a very informative answer. We talk about the “evolution” of automobiles, yet we know there was design at every stage of this evolution. Humans didn’t create modern, self-driving cars first. The earliest automobiles were simple, and more complex cars gradually evolved over the years. Well, not “too” gradually: where major new features appeared, they appeared more or less suddenly. If you line up all the old models, you won’t find a very gradual transition between steam engines and internal combustion engines. Intermediate forms, with incipient steam engines, would have had puzzling new but not yet useful features.

Human Nature According to Darwin – A Christian Response

In the 19 th century, there were several trends in theology that set the stage for Darwinism. Consider one example. It was argued that it would demean God to believe every animal species was a unique act of creation. Rather, God would be a wiser and more capable creator if the capacity to create species by some natural process was built into creation. This view also downplayed or dismissed other things God did like miracles in the New Testament. This was sometimes referred to as “Greater God Theology.” Ideas like this and others we will now consider motivated Darwin to reconcile what was observed in nature with the theology of his day.

Episode 071: Why We Cheat - Christian Research Institute

We live by a “fudge factor,” seeing our value in our achievements as greater than they really are. God, however, sees us as we really are: sinful, irrational beings willing to cheat and lie to ourselves, exaggerating our accomplishments to others. Despite our faults, God also views us as inherently valuable, based not on our flawed image but His perfect one.

Why Would a Good God Allow So Much "Christian" Evil? | Cold Case Christianity

Whenever I start writing about morality or the existence of evil , I almost always get an email (or two) from people who point to the historic actions of alleged “Christians”. For many skeptics, Christianity is the source of much evil in the past (i.e. the Crusades and the Inquisition). For this reason, some skeptics point to “Christian” evil as evidence against the existence of a good Christian God. While history may include examples of “Christian” groups committing evil upon those with whom they disagreed, a fair examination will also reveal Christians were not alone in this sort of behavior. Groups holding virtually every worldview, from theists to atheists, have been mutually guilty of evil behavior. Atheists point to the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition when making a case against Christians, theists point to the atheistic regimes of Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse Tung when making a case against atheists. Death statistics are often debated in an effort to argue which groups were more violent, but all this seems to miss the point. The common denominator in these violent human groups was not worldview; it was the presence of humans.

We must love God with all of our intellectual capacity

Over and over in Scripture we are commanded to seek out knowledge, and over and over we are warned of the consequences if we don't. In fact, when Jesus commanded us to "love the Lord your God with all your mind," He was saying we must love God with all of our intellectual capacity. Knowledge must be held in tension with love. When it isn't, pride and arrogance can gain a foothold. But true knowledge is humbling. The more I learn, the more I know how much I have to learn.

What Did the Father Intend on the Cross?

This brings us to the real issue about what Christ’s death accomplished and to whom it is applied: What did God the Father intend His Son to achieve on the cross? Did He intend that Jesus would merely make salvation possible, or did He intend Him effectually to satisfy the justice of God only for the elect, who will share in this sacrifice by faith? In other words, was Jesus’ death intended effectually to save some or was it intended merely to make salvation possible for all? In the lengthiest article in this section on Christ’s redemption, Canons of Dort 2.8 addresses this. Since it’s long, let me outline it with my comments in brackets:

3 Things Your Calling Is Not

No doubt each person is called and gifted individually, but a true understanding of calling recognizes that we’re called not for mere personal gratification but for the good of others (Rom. 12:4–5; 1 Cor. 12:12–31; 1 Pet. 4:10–11). This others-focus flies against the individualistic and self-interested spirit of our age.

Rapid Response: "You Can't Trust the Gospels Because They Were Written by Christians"

In our Rapid Response series, we tackle common concerns about (and objections to) the Christian worldview by providing short, conversational responses. 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. Imagine if someone said, “I can’t trust what the New Testament says about Jesus: after all, it was written by biased Christians . I can only believe what’s been written by ancient non – Christians , and they don’t say much about Jesus.” How would you answer such an objection? Here is a conversational example of how I recently responded:

Wait, They're Seriously Making a TV Show About Batman's Butler?

And no, it doesn’t seem like Batman will be in the series, at least in the early days.  Pennyworth will focus on Alfred’s time in the special forces, as well as his days working for Thomas Wayne (Batman’s dad). The series comes from the executive producers of the other Batman prequel series (yes, there are more than one),  Gotham , which will end with its next season.

The Best Church Leader Is a Team

But here’s the tricky part: preserving joyful unity in the midst of disagreement is healthy plurality too. Some assume that disagreement or dissent undermines the team and will always clog the flow of joy. But that common fallacy confuses dissent with disrespect or disloyalty. Humble leaders have healthy debates that uphold the law of love. And when they are able to disagree agreeably, this actually works to improve the unity and depth of the team. A healthy plurality must understand that mindless uniformity among the elders weakens the church. Healthy leadership is to comprehend that a misguided deference to the loudest voice or a naïve admiration of the lead pastor makes agreement superficial, even dangerous.
