A Fresh Look at Apologetics: A Conversation with Andrew Wilson - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Andrew Wilson: Two reasons, really. First, that's where my story started. I'd love to have a story like C. S. Lewis (the most reluctant convert in all England) or Alister McGrath (an atheist scientist at University) or something, but that's not my story; I was brought up in a Christian family and didn't really consider the evidence for Christian belief properly until after I went to Cambridge. So for me, the apologetic journey began with asking very deep questions of my own worldview rather than gradually discovering a completely foreign one.

An Introduction to Orthodox Christology: The Pentateuch

In his first epistle to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul tells his readers that “Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed” (1 Cor. 5:7). We find the background to this saying in the book of Exodus. In Exodus 12, God gives Moses the instructions for the Passover ceremony that will distinguish Israel from Egypt. God tells Moses that this month will now be the first month of the year for Israel (v. 2). This night will commemorate Israel’s birth as a nation. Each household is to take a lamb without blemish and keep it until the fourteenth day of the month, at which point it shall be killed (vv. 3–6). The lamb’s blood is then to be placed on the doorposts and lintel of the houses, and the families in the houses are to eat the roasted flesh of the lamb (vv. 7–11). God tells Moses that on this night He will pass through Egypt and strike down the firstborn of the Egyptians, but He will pass over the houses marked with the sign of the lamb’s blood (vv. 12–13). The Passover lamb becomes a substitute for Israel, God’s firstborn son (cf.

Reviewed by Dawne McCance, St. John's College, University of Manitoba In his Foreword to Marc Crépon’s book, Rodolphe Gasché suggests that what it offers, above all, is a new history of the segment of continental philosophical thought that, in the wake of the violence of two world wars, was determined by a critical debate between French and German thinkers over Martin Heidegger's thought on death. In a moment of post-war disillusionment, when philosophical thought itself, along with the possibility of living together at all, were put "radically into question" (ix), participants in the debate responded with some urgency to Heidegger's notion of Being-toward-death. As Gasché is careful to point. . .

8 Ways To Be a Bad Friend

Unfortunately, sometimes we make a poor choice and enter into relationships that will never be healthy no matter what actions are taken. We need to know when and how to end a toxic relationship. If someone is not able to accept a change in the status or direction, is not loyal and stable under pressure or in the face of challenge, or had once been dependable but now is unreliable, these are strong clues that the relationship may not be worth saving. Don’t let feelings of misplaced guilt or sympathy get in the way of making good personal choices.

Why Don’t Calvinists Care About Missions?

Perhaps the biggest question is this: Are today's Calvinists true to our historic nature and evangelical calling? If we are enthusiastic about God's worldwide mission, how do our actions show it? How blessed it would be to answer these questions so convincingly that no one thinks to ask; all will know that Calvinists really do care about missions.

WORLD | The Amazing Spider-Man 2 | Emily Belz | May 17, 2014

Because superhero movies are now a genre, or perhaps a brand, we get a lot of the tropes we’ve seen before: a huge corporation developing secret military projects waiting to be misused, supervillains destroying parts of New York, a hero conflicted about bringing the woman he loves into his violent world. But film critics like the man next to me are maybe the only ones tired of the onslaught of comic book–based movies: Box office receipts show audiences still love them. Fans of the comic books will already know the plot development coming in this movie, making it less of a crowd-pleaser than others, but the plot will nonetheless push audiences to the subsequent films in the series.

Is Abortion Really Wrong? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

There’s no doubt, one of today’s most polarising issues is abortion. The two sides of the abortion issue have never been further apart. While the folks on the one side of the issue keep pressing for personal liberty at all cost and blame religion for attempting to trample on those freedoms, the folks on the other side stare blindly at the radicalization of the self over against what appears to be an intuitively basic knowledge that life is to be protected. Many in this camp will say that we can know that abortion is wrong simply through our intuition, and while this may ultimately be true, it does no work in resolving the issue as a matter of an objective moral law or public policy because it is unable to bridge the gap between the two sides.

Passion: Take It All (Deluxe Edition / Live) by Passion

After a decade-long stint leading a student ministry at Baylor University in Texas, Louie Giglio and his wife Shelley moved to Atlanta in 1995 and started the Passion conferences, a national collegiate ministry that used live worship music and teaching to encourage young people to live for the glory of God. Yearly Passion events served as the movement's centerpieces: multi-day, festival-styled gatherings whose attendance grew exponentially from a couple of thousand when Passion held its first get-together...

Grace to You

In this way we show our family likeness, an increasing resemblance to our heavenly Father. For example, God provides His general blessings on everyone, with no respect for merit or deserving; otherwise no one could receive them. The psalmist writes, “The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food in due time. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing” (Ps. 145:15–16). If God is so generous, we who claim to know Him ought to show similar love and impartial concern for everyone, even those who don’t like us.

The bad news is that gentlemanly behavior makes people happy

I agree with the article. Discrimination–treating people differently than others–is almost always bad because it almost always involves treating people that inherently the same differently. For example, racism is treating black people as subhuman–even though they inherently are no different than white people except in their skin color. However, men and women are different because they have different hormones. They are different biologically, and these biological differences make them have certain preferences. Women like to be courted by a gentleman, for example. If it has a positive effect on happiness, it shouldn’t matter. Clearly the lack of “equality”–which really isn’t an issue of equality because men and women ARE inherently different and thus don’t need to be treated exactly the same–does not have as great of an effect on happiness as the positive side of benevolent sexism does.

Andrew C. McCarthy - Obama’s ‘Blame the Video’ Fraud Started in Cairo, Not Benghazi

Mr. Carney was grilled about just-released e-mails that corroborate what many of us have been arguing all along: “Blame the Video” was an Obama-administration–crafted lie, through and through. It was intended, in the stretch run of the 2012 campaign, to obscure the facts that (a) the president’s foreign policy of empowering Islamic supremacists contributed directly and materially to the Benghazi massacre; (b) the president’s reckless stationing of American government personnel in Benghazi and his shocking failure to provide sufficient protection for them were driven by a political-campaign imperative to portray the Obama Libya policy as a success — and, again, they invited the jihadist violence that killed our ambassador and three other Americans; and (c) far from being “decimated,” as the president repeatedly claimed during the campaign (and continued to claim even after the September 11 violence in Egypt and Libya), al-Qaeda and its allied

5 moves to integrate theology into your ministry

Being in ministry means learning to live with the disappointment of people. Sometimes you will genuinely let them down because of your shortcomings and failures, and sometimes they will have unrealistic expectations. If you build your ministry on yourself and on your abilities, this disillusionment — both yours and theirs — will be crippling. If, on the other hand, you show them that Jesus is the only one who never disappoints, that our hope is in him and that he alone is our standard and our strength, then their hope rests on Christ alone. Talk constantly about Jesus, about his attributes and about his grace and truth. We see more of God’s glory in Christ than Moses ever saw on Sinai. Jesus is lovely and he is ours.

Archaeology Proves the Bible Record - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

One such opinion that is tossed around today and widely accepted is that the Bible is rife with historical error.  Many so-called scholars have promoted this idea with enthusiasm.  One must realize that these “scholars” have their own agendas:  religious, anti-religious, anti-supernatural, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, or very often political.  One does not go around “disproving” the Bible without a reason.

Are You Ready?

“In the year 1800, just a little over 200 years ago, only 3% of humanity lived in cities, according to the most accurate estimations. So 97 out of every hundred people did not live in a city. City was a rare experience, a very expensive experience. Cities existed for political reasons, economic reasons, cultural reasons, but very few people actually lived in them. By 1900 that 3% had increased to 10%. But between 1900 and 2007, that 10% had increased to 50%. And by 2050, the low range of estimate is that 75-80% of all human beings will live in cities. Now if you have any normal lifespans, that’s the future you will know. That’s where will 75-80% of people will be.”

This guy is just not ready for prime time. Frankly, he’s the libertarian Rick Santorum. A great senator, but he doesn’t know when to stop talking as a presidential candidate, and instead of rallying people to his cause he talks them out of it with technocratic lingo and process-speak. Rand even had his “team player” moment last week endorsing Susan Collins. Arlen Specter would be proud.

Tim Keller: we live in a time in which you can’t avoid the why question - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I’ve heard plenty of Christians try to answer the why question by going back to the what. “You have to believe because Jesus is the Son of God.” But that’s answering the why with more what. Increasingly we live in a time in which you can’t avoid the why question. Just giving the what (for example, a vivid gospel presentation) worked in the days when the cultural institutions created an environment in which Christianity just felt true or at least honorable. But in a post-Christendom society, in the marketplace of ideas, you have to explain why this is true, or people will just dismiss it.

How Not to Debate an Atheist

I try to keep in mind the feelings of both parties in the argument if I can. I myself have friends that are Athiests as well as agnostic and I agree that retaliation is never a good means to win someone to Christ. Christ taught us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. Peter taught to keep a clear conscience and always share the truth with gentleness and respect. Now I respect your emotions although I disagree with your belief system as a whole. Yes you do have some truth that "christians can sometimes be hypocritical" but so can Athiests. We all are imperfect and sinners. Fueling the fire with more and more anger never helps anyone. As you can see the bible does make a valid point that no one is truly righteous apart from Christ, even Christian's fall short. The whole point is Jesus died on the cross for all mankind who will receive his gracious gift. I know for certain Im in need of it no matter how moral or good I appear to others at the end of they day I, we, you, everyone on earth will fall short. Romans 3:10-23 As it is written:‘There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands;there is no one who seeks God.

Craig S. Keener: Jesus Existed - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Contrary to some circles on the Internet, very few scholars doubt that Jesus existed, preached and led a movement. Scholars' confidence has nothing to do with theology but much to do with historiographic common sense. What movement would make up a recent leader, executed by a Roman governor for treason, and then declare, "We're his followers"? If they wanted to commit suicide, there were simpler ways to do it.

The Significance of Science in Biblical Apologetics - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Science, according to Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary, is “ knowledge attained through study or practice,…” The proper role of science in the search for Truth is to authenticate what God has already stated in Scripture. As Christians, we should begin with God's Word and expect science to confirm what He has said. In much the same way that apologetics document God’s Word, science validates it.

Another Scientist Claiming that the Laws of Physics + Time = Protons and Plato - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

Astrophysicist Alex Filippenko of the Universityof California, Berkeleytook part in a panel discussion on June 23, 2012 at the SETICon 2 conference on the topic “Did the Big Bang Require a Divine Spark?”  Taking a page out of the playbooks of Stephen Hawking and Lawrence Krauss, Filippenko claimed that “the Big Bang could’ve occurred as a result of just the laws of physics being there. With the laws of physics, you can get universes.”[1] If the laws of physics are responsible for churning out universes, then the ultimate question is not the origin of the universe, but the origin of the laws of physics.  Where did they come from?  Filippenko recognizes this problem, saying “The question, then, is, ‘Why are there laws of physics?’  And you could say, ‘Well, that required a divine creator, who created these laws of physics and the spark that led from the laws of physics to these universes, maybe more than one.’”[2]

Evangelism, Apologetics, and Cultural Impact - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

There is a difficulty in implementing apologetics into our churches. This difficulty arises from the notion that apologetics has no real practical value; that apologetics is employed only by scholars in their ivory towers—who think themselves wise—which is warned against multiple times in the Bible (e.g., Proverbs 26:12 ). This attitude is a serious problem and it must be dealt with. The best way to debunk this myth is for Christians to get out (literally) and show that this is not true. Some may argue from the Bible the necessity of apologetics in our church, but as James says, “Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do” ( James 2:18b ). Therefore, we must go out to the frontlines of this spiritual war and show that the proof is in the pudding.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Making Sense of Scripture’s ‘Inconsistency’ - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I find it frustrating when I read or hear columnists, pundits, or journalists dismiss Christians as inconsistent because "they pick and choose which of the rules in the Bible to obey." Most often I hear, "Christians ignore lots of Old Testament texts---about not eating raw meat or pork or shellfish, not executing people for breaking the Sabbath, not wearing garments woven with two kinds of material and so on. Then they condemn homosexuality. Aren't you just picking and choosing what you want to believe from the Bible?"

J.P. Moreland: The disciples had nothing to gain - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

The disciples had nothing to gain by lying and starting a new religion. They faced hardship, ridicule, hostility, and martyr's deaths. In light of this, they could never have sustained such unwavering motivation if they knew what they were preaching was a lie. The disciples were not fools and Paul was a cool-headed intellectual of the first rank. There would have been several opportunities over three to four decades of ministry to reconsider and renounce a lie.

Because he’s developed a number of curriculums to use for such situations, he sent a letter to all the churches in our metropolitan area (which is quite a lot) explaining what he does, and offered to come to their church free of charge and conduct Christian apologetic training for their youth.

Your church is where Jesus wants to show his beauty

In this new kind of community, which only the gospel can create, desperate sinners coming to Christ have nothing to fear.  They are finally safe.  They can open up about what’s really going on in their lives.  They can find healing for the past and hope for the future.  This new kind of church feels like heaven on earth.  And the way to get there is not by slick packaging but by gospel rebuilding.  It’s what the doctrine is for – building a new kind of community to compel the attention of the world.

The Importance of Parents in the Faith of Emerging Adults - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

In previous articles{1} we considered the dramatic changes in the beliefs of American evangelicals particularly among young adults. It certainly appears that we are sliding into an era of cultural captivity where one's identification with Christ and an evangelical church does not keep one from holding a set of beliefs consistent with the culture and counter to biblical truth. Here we want to consider the role that parents had in establishing these inconsistent belief systems of their children, and think about some ways today’s parents may be able to counter these destructive patterns in the future. Before looking at the roles parents do and should play in establishing these belief systems, let’s consider some of the key belief trends that are driving our concern.

If you will give me just a few minutes of your time, I would like to talk about nothing. Now, I know you may be thinking, “Well, if you are going to talk about nothing, then why are you talking about something?” But I don’t want to talk about something. If I wanted to talk about something, I could practically talk about anything, because everything that exists is something. Yet, I want to talk about nothing. That is, I want to talk about the concept of nothing, not say nothing, because clearly I am saying something! Confused? It sounds an awfully lot like the Abbott and Costello bit called “ Who’s On First ?” doesn’t it?

When the Christian Brain Ceases to be Relevant - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

And in this capacity, with that sort of responsibility on its shoulders, the magazine presents this article, starting out with the worry that “All this learning how to defend Christianity seems to have left us uncomfortable with one very basic word.” That word, as it turns out, is Christianity’s new “f word,” faith. I’d like a little clarity on who the author has in mind when he says “us.” Surely he doesn’t mean himself, because in this article he holds himself aloof from this spiritual deadness. Does he mean to refer to the intellectuals he refers to; J. P. Moreland, William Lane Craig, or Alvin Plantinga? Is he suggesting that they are a little uncomfortable with the word “faith”? One hopes that’s not what he’s saying. In his sights, I suspect, is that elusive scapegoat, the generic, unnamed, “typical Christian these days,” whoever that might be…

Hermeneutics the Art and Science of Interpretation - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I haven’t put up a post in a while for several reasons. One, I had a hard drive crash which has diverted a lot of time to rebuilding that system. Two, I am busy in the final semester of my Master of Arts degree in Theological Studies. To that end, I am taking a class in hermeneutics. You might ask herm-a-what?  So, I thought I would share some of what I am learning. Hermeneutics is broadly defined as the art and science of bridging linguistic, historical, social, and cultural divides between ancient and modern contexts so that one may understand what the ancient texts mean.[1] The term can also be used in the narrower sense of seeking the contemporary application of ancient texts.[2] The first step of interpretation is exegesis. Exegesis is the systematic effort to determine what the original author intended. Paul realized this about the Old Testament:

Generation Ex-Christian: Why Young Adults Are Leaving the Faith - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I just finished Drew Dyck’s book, Generation Ex-Christian: Why Young Adults Are Leaving the Faith…and How to Bring Them Back .  I’ve been involved in college ministry for eight years, and I recognize that young adults are continually leaving their faith, but this book explored why they do.  In fact, “Generation Ex-Christian” is the first research-based book that thoroughly explains the whys of leavers.  I had a hard time putting it down, because as I read, names of friends who have walked away from church or their faith on some level or another kept entering my mind.  This book broke my heart for college students who once knew and loved Jesus, but for one reason or another, left him in the dust as they transitioned from youth to adulthood.

Challenging Atheism’s Definition of Faith - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I'm sorry but the first and main purpose of language is to communicate. And they're out of our control. Words come to mean what most people understand by them and not what their authors intended for them to mean originally. Because we make up the meaning of words according to what most understand of them. The meaning of the words evolve with time. And if nowadays I say "faith" meaning: "believing the truth value of a proposition with zero evidence and some times in the face of conflicting evidence", and that's what most people understand when I utter the word, the communication requisite is being met and thus, that's the meaning of the word. Communication before all, regardless of the origins of the word. Faith might have meant something different when the Bible was written. Today it means what people believe it means. Maybe you need another word for what you claim faith to be.

Doesn’t religion cause killing? - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

The idea that religion causes violence is taken as an almost self-evident truth in many circles.  Atheists often use this as a justification for embracing a “secular” lifestyle and belief system that does not acknowledge the existence of God.  But there are big problems with this line of reasoning.  Religious scholar William T. Cavanaugh writes in The Myth of Religious Violence: Secular Ideology and the Roots of Modern Conflict :

Suffering According to James

James stands in the traditions of the Old Testament and Jesus, following their literary use of the “poor” as oppressed and righteous. For James and the other biblical writers, the poor are not righteous because of their socio-economic standing but through faith in God. The identity of the poor also may be linked with the exiled people of God (Isa 26:6; 49:13; 51:21), who hope in God’s ultimate eschatological vindication (Isa 49; 51; 54; 61). This was true for Israel, the Qumran community, and likely James’s recipients, the Christian covenant communities of the Dispersion. The identity of the poor as the people of God in James is additionally clarified by the identity of the rich, who are not merely people with many possessions, but are characterized as proud (James 1:9–11), receiving an eschatological humiliation (1:9–11), oppressors, defrauders, and persecutors of believers (2:5–7; 5:1–6), blasphemers of Christ (2:7), and as those who will be severely punished by God (5:1–6). Further, there seem to be two categories of the poor in James: the severely poor destitute of even decent clothes and often in need of daily food (2:14-17); and the majority of the people in the churches who evidently had enough to be responsible to help the severely poor.

Gospel Assurance and Warnings - Recovering the Gospel Series

“Paul Washer has given us a tremendously helpful tool to seek solid assurance that we are saved from sin by God’s grace. The Word of God is like a mirror for self-examination. The Epistle of First John particularly helps us examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. Washer applies 1 John in a masterful way to this question, explaining a dozen marks of saving grace in the soul. At the same time, this book does not encourage us to rest on our past experiences but to press forward in spiritual growth in dependence upon the Spirit of Christ. Here is sweet help for God’s children struggling to enjoy assurance of their Father’s forgiveness and acceptance. And here is a sober warning to the self-deceived. May God use this book for His glory to the comfort of His people and the conversion of lost sinners.” — Joel R. Beeke, president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Why No Baptized Lions Or Talking Crosses Made It Into Your Bible - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

From the first century forward, Christians viewed testimony that could be connected to eyewitnesses of Jesus as uniquely authoritative. The logic of this standard was simple: The people most likely to know the truth about Jesus were either eyewitnesses who had encountered Jesus personally or close associates of these witnesses. So, although Christians wrangled for some time about the authority of certain writings, it was something far greater than political machinations that drove these decisions. Their goal was to determine which books could be clearly connected to eyewitnesses of Jesus.

It Should Never have Come to That Point - The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Network

I can still hear my youth pastor saying, “One in every three of you sitting in this room will walk away from church once you move to college.” I remember thinking he was off his rocker; I mean that’s ridiculous, right? We’ve been in church all our lives; it has become our deeply entrenched routine. What curveball could college possibly throw so that we would walk away from Christ and his church? The answer isn’t a simple one. For some it’s freedom, and for others its institutional liberal agendas.
