Objections to Apologetics: Ultimately Fail

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 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.

Why Were Early Christians So Brave?

The intention of the following blog is to offer support for Christians who encounter people who believe Jesus is merely a myth, perpetuated by the early Church. One such mythicist is Dr. Richard Carrier. I have had a number of delightful interactions with Carrier on Twitter, which alerted me to his thoughts on Christianity, Jesus, and the Bible. He is an historian with a Ph.D. from Columbia University who has written numerous books and blog posts refuting the existence of Jesus.

The Uniqueness of University Evangelism

There’s one last reason why we should make university evangelism a high priority. Today there are enormous numbers of international students flocking to receive Western educations. One reason we should reach out to them has already been noted. Away from their home cultures and communities, they’re far more accessible and open to considering the claims of Christianity than they’ve ever been before or, possibly, will be again. Indeed, many students who opt for a Western education have every intention of weighing worldview options and other religions.

The Joy of the Lord Is Your Strength

The text on this point is a familiar one, but one we don’t stop to think about more carefully. “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10). Whether the “joy of the Lord” here refers mainly to the joy he has in himself, or to the joy he gives us, we have no real hope of joy or strength unless God is happy (John 15:11).

Coming Soon: The Revised Apologetics Study Bible for Students

The student apologetics Bible first released in 2010 and has sold over 160,000 copies. To be honest, this has blown away my expectations. This shows the hunger for both relevant and practical resources that tackle the real questions students are asking. On July 1 we are releasing an updated, expanded, and improved version . Here are a few ways the update will be different from the first version:

How Not to Argue About Which Bible Translation Is Best

A story from linguist and New Testament scholar Moisés Silva illustrates this principle. Silva’s mother tongue is Spanish, and when he was a student, one of his professors asked him whether he’d translate a Spanish theological article into English for him. Silva thought that he could do this quickly without a problem, but it ended up being a nightmare. He hadn’t translated much written material from Spanish to English before, and he quickly realized that an English translation simply can’t convey all the connotations of the Spanish original.

Why We Argue Best with Our Mouths Shut

If we have any hope for healing the divisions in our society, families, churches, and communities, it will serve us well to learn how to have better conversations. And mounting scientific evidence suggests that the secret may lie in the charge put forth by James: to make every effort to be quick to listen and slow to speak (1:19).

4 Pieces of Wisdom from a Street Level Apologist

One reason I believe in Christianity is because it speaks of reality closer than any other worldview. This isn’t the only or even the main reason but it is one of the reasons. Even if Christianity is not true (I do not doubt Christianity) I am convinced that atheism is wholly false. That is because atheism contradict the real world at every turn. I try to point this out to skeptics all the time and I’ve learned a lot about how to deal with people. Here are four observations I’ve made about our culture.

The Philando Castile Verdict Was a Miscarriage of Justice

I understand the inherent danger of police work. I also understand the legal responsibilities of men and women who volunteer to put on that uniform, and the legal rights of the citizens they’ve sworn to protect and serve. I’m aware of no evidence that Yanez panicked because Castile was black. But whether he panicked because of race, simply because of the gun, or because of both, he still panicked, and he should have been held accountable. The jury’s verdict was a miscarriage of justice.

5 Things You Can Do to Love Your Refugee Neighbor

One of the most powerful ways for us to love immigrants is to share our own immigrant story; a story the overwhelming majority of us have to tell. The Tenement Museum in New York City is an incredible space to learn about how immigrants came to the U.S. in the 20th century. They have launched a new campaign, Your Story, Our Story, featuring objects that capture the immigrant experience. The project uncovers the patterns that bind us, no matter where we came from or how long we’ve been here. Upload an object that carries meaning for your own family, and join the museum in telling the story of American immigration.

Jesus Isn’t Looking for ‘Good’ People

Jesus said, “I have not come for the righteous, but for sinners.” None of us is naturally good or righteous (Mark 2:17, 10:18). Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for being hypocrites who saw themselves as sinless kings while they viewed everyone else as sinful, worthless peasants. They rejected Christ’s gifts and miracles because they felt they didn’t need them, but it was the outcasts and the needy who were humble and willing to receive His grace. Jesus even said:

The Supreme Court Will Hear a Potentially Landmark Case on Partisan Gerrymandering

Although a majority of the court has suggested that states can violate the Constitution if they draw legislative districts primarily to benefit one political party, the justices have never been able to identify the specific point at which states cross the constitutional line. In this case, a lower court held that Wisconsin had indeed crossed that line. If the justices agree, it would be the first time the court has articulated a constitutional rule in this context, which could—and likely would—have enormous ramifications nationwide.

Victory over Porn Is Closer Than You Think

Fighting sin feels like this, doesn’t it? When we’re in the midst of temptation, all we can see is the next big wave looming in front of us. Surrounded and hopeless, we give in and face defeat, never knowing that just over the water ridge is the calmer sea of victory in Christ. If we only had eyes to see over, what freedom would we experience in the midst of temptation? What fresh strength and resolve would we feel, with God’s help?

Authentic Christianity in a Post-Christian Culture - Christian Research Institute

I want to talk about something really quickly, and then to our callers, which is the reality that we live in a post-Christian culture. As Rod Dreher says in the Benedict Option , this is not sheer hyperbole; it is sheer reality. He talks about the “deep cultural forces” that are disintegrating Christianity in the West, forces that have created a spiritual crisis that we have not seen — think about this — since the fall of the Roman Empire. Christian conservatives must read the signs of the times. This is not about losing the culture wars, or potentially losing the culture wars. The game is over, as far as the culture wars are concerned. That does not mean this is a defeatist message, because the real solution is in finding your all in the Triadic One. In other words, being brought into the life of the Trinity.

We All Need Adversity and Affliction

I grew up in Middle America, spending most of my childhood in the 70s, and coming of age in the mid-80s. Which means my life was easy. Not that it was altogether easy. My working-class family had, like most families, plenty of spiritual, physical, and relational brokenness, sin, and pain. But I had parents who loved me, some really good friends, a solid church, and a decent, if deficient, public education. Above all that, God mercifully brought me to faith in Christ around age eleven. This provided me a spiritual and moral keel as I sailed the volatile waters of adolescence.

The Origin of Life, Self-Organization, and Information | Evolution News

A simple analogy will demonstrate why machinery and information were essential. Scientists often claim that any ancient energy source could have provided the needed free energy to generate life. However, this claim is like a couple returning home from a long vacation to find that their children left their house in complete disarray, with clothes on the floor, unwashed dishes in the sink, and papers scattered across all of the desks. The couple recently heard an origin-of-life researcher claim that order could be produced for free from any generic source of energy. Based on this idea, they pour gasoline on their furniture and then set it on fire. They assume that the energy released from the fire will organize their house. However, they soon realize that unprocessed energy creates an even greater mess.

31
Prescription for Morality?

If atheists have no foundation for morality, does this mean they can’t be moral citizens? Of course not; many atheists are decent, moral people. But that’s not the issue. The point is that they are living inconsistently with their worldview. They claim we are just animals and that there is no absolute authority for morality, yet they live as if there is a moral code and moral absolutes. They are inconsistent because you can’t actually live with the belief that there are no moral absolutes. So they borrow from a Christian worldview of moral absolutes to support their own erroneous worldview.

7 Tips For Apologetics Judo

Apologetics lends itself to martial arts metaphors. Christian apologetics lends itself to many other metaphors too, besides combat, war and martial arts. Apologetics can be modeled after any number of other helpful analogies, for example (1) Cultivating an Intellectual Garden, (2) Worldview Surgery, (3) Theological Housecleaning, or (4) Ideological Homebuilding, etc. etc. I’m afraid my examples today fall in line more with images of combat, fighting, and warfare. But hey, the best movies in history tend to be love-stories and war movies right? Christianity has both, the epic love-story of all history set within a series of battles. In the end, the apparent tragedies dotting the timeline of history (crucifixion, tribulation, cosmic destruction) give way to a comedic ending, a heroic victory (Christ’s return), with wedded union (Church and Christ), and eternal wedding party (heaven).

US Prepares to Deport Hundreds of Iraqi Christians

“It’s entirely appropriate that an individual who is convicted of a crime face the appropriate penalty, such as a lengthy jail sentence,” said World Relief’s Tudi. “But if that has happened, there is no significant concern that the person remains a threat to others within the US. And the possibility of harm is so significant for a religious minority being deported to Iraq right now, these cases could be carefully assessed to consider if they are cases where mercy could be extended by the federal government as an exercise of discretion.”

Christianity Promotes Rational (and Evidential) Exploration | Cold Case Christianity

Anais Nin, the avant-garde author and diarist, once said, “When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow.” I couldn’t agree more. As a detective and evidentialist, the last thing I want a jury to do is adopt a position blindly. Many people seem to think that Christians do this very thing, however, when they adopt the view that Christianity is true. This is largely due to the fact that the term, “faith” is largely misunderstood. For some (even for some Christians), faith is best defined as “believing in something that lacks supporting evidence.” But this is not the definition of faith that is presented on the pages of Christian Scripture. Instead, the Biblical notion of faith is more akin to “trusting in the best inference from the evidence” (more on this in my post on Friday).

The Difference Between Complaining About Church and Critiquing It

Like me, you may have at one time or another found yourself looking at the state of the church, either local or at large and expressing some level of discontentment with your perceptions. In these moments, as we are faced with the choice of whether to release the narratives we have built to others or to simply forget them, there is one question that we must ask ourselves: Am I complaining or am I critiquing? Here are two ways to tell and how to proceed once you know the answer.

How Does Growing Apostasy Prove That Christians Are Getting Closer to the Truth? | The Stream

No new textual, archeological, sociological, anthropological, or philological discoveries have been made in the last fifty years that would cause us to read any of these biblical texts differently. Put another way, it is not that we have gained some new insights into what the biblical text means based on the study of the Hebrew and Greek texts. Instead, people’s interaction with the LGBT community has caused them to understand the biblical text differently.

Adventure Is Good. But Planting Roots Is Essential

Perhaps it is celebrating the culture of the new place in which you find yourself. Try hot chicken when you move to Nashville. Watch the rowers gracefully glide past you on the Thames. Bang pots and pans at a Zambian bride’s kitchen party. Practice radical hospitality: Host neighbors for a meal, welcome new friends into your home and pray for your city. You may be surprised at what the Lord can and will do.

Should Churches Keep Their Civil War Landmarks?

The goal of removal efforts is not to erase history, but to recontextualize it. The Confederacy with its vicious legacy of white supremacy should not be honored but lamented. … This debate extends beyond questions of who we were to who we want to be. Commemorating the past elevates it as an example to emulate in the future. David continues to be held in high esteem within the Judeo-Christian tradition because even when he failed, his heart was bent toward what was right. The Confederacy is not an honorable example of imperfect people trying to do the right thing, but a tragic warning of what happens when we pursue our interests at the expense of others’ humanity.

Your Doubt Doesn’t Make You a Bad Christian

But one thing I’ve learned in my own decadelong struggle with doubt—when it’s addressed inside of a relationship with Jesus, there no path too dark, no question too deep and no subject too taboo to delve into. God is not afraid of your questions, and asking them doesn’t disqualify you from having a relationship with Him. In fact, sometimes choosing to embrace sincere questions can actually lead you to a stronger, more grounded faith.

Some questioned SBC’s motivation, given the way in which the parliamentary drama unfolded. But while we “fumbled the ball” (to quote newly elected Pastor’s Conference President, H.B.

It was also heartening to see, on display, the anguished humility of leaders like. Barrett Duke, chair of the Resolutions Committee, who apologized for the declining of the initial resolution against the alt-right, submitted by Dallas pastor, Dwight McKissic.

A Father’s Reflections

In our heavenly Father’s gracious plan, earthly fathers play a key role in passing faith on to the next generation. There are two God-given ways by which we can encourage faith in others: by speaking the Word of God to them and living faith-filled lives before them. While fathers cannot guarantee that our children, grandchildren, or anybody else will believe God and His Word, we can promote faith in others by our words and our works, as this exhortation from Scripture bears out:

It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost — future time that won’t be spent with a warm, engaging, brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds. But we choose to focus on the time we were given to be with this remarkable person.  You can tell from the outpouring of emotion from the communities that he touched — Wyoming, Ohio and the University of Virginia to name just two — that the love for Otto went well beyond his immediate family.
