I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist (Book)

Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself.

The Unwritten Law That Helps Bad Cops Go Free

Yesterday afternoon, Minnesota officials finally released the full video of the traffic stop that cost Philando Castile his life. It’s a tough video to watch. I’m embedding it below, but beware, it is very raw: If you watch carefully, two salient facts should emerge. First, Philando Castile was quite literally following the police officer’s instructions when he was shot. The officer asked for his license and told him not to reach for his gun. Castile reached for his license while verbally assuring the officer that he was not reaching for his gun. The officer shot him anyway. The second fact overwhelmed the first. The officer panicked. His terror is palpable ...

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:

‘Bloodline’ Is the Kind of Messianic Show We Need

There’s a way of reading the Old Testament as tragic literature, something like Shakespeare’s tragedies. That can be difficult for Christians this side of the canon, but think about it: Starting in the third chapter of Genesis, humanity sets out on a centurieslong search for the man who could reverse the curse of sin and return the world to its garden state. If you’re turning the last pages of Malachi any time before Jesus actually arrives (or before you know who he really is), you’ll read the story of a people stuck in longing. Sure, hope-filled passages like Genesis 3:15, Isaiah 53, Psalm 1-2 remain, but without the context of what—or who—happens next, we’re not talking about hope in the same way we experience it.

Did Jesus Commend Faith That Is Blind? | Cold Case Christianity

Jesus is talking here about all the people (like you and me) who will believe in Jesus not because of what we will see with our own eyes but because of what the disciples saw and recorded as eyewitnesses (“their word”). Yes, Thomas was blessed to believe on the basis of what he saw, but how much more blessed are those who will someday believe, not on the basis of what they will see, but on the basis of what the disciples saw and faithfully recorded. Jesus understood the value of evidence and continually provided “many convincing proofs” (Acts 1:2-3) to His followers so they could record their observations and change the world with their testimony. Jesus commended this process; His words to Thomas were not an affirmation of “blind faith”.

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:

God Loves Good Hip-Hop

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits” (Proverbs 18:21). God used words to create the world, and our use of words is a way we mirror him as image bearers (Hebrews 11:3; Genesis 1:27). God also uses words to save the world. “How are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?” (Romans 10:14).

Seven Prayers for Christian Dating

We feel how vulnerable we are in dating — the uncertainty, the fragility, the volatility. It is not a safe love yet, because it is not yet sealed with our promises. If we are to truly, deeply, exclusively, freely, and passionately love each other, it must be as husband and wife. It must be inside the beautiful and mysterious oneness of marriage. So, give us clarity, God. We are waiting for you to make clear whether we should marry. We don’t want to date one day longer than you would have us. We’re pleading for wisdom in dating because we know how much you love to give it to those who ask.

Finding My ‘True Self’ As a Same-Sex Attracted Woman

This question is of particular significance to me as someone who grew up struggling with same-sex attraction and found no safe place to confide and sort out those feelings. From early on, I was drawn to other women in a way that felt different. Any appearance of “boy craziness” in middle school was generated to fit in with my friends and was overwhelmed by the desire to have an exclusive “know and be known” relationship with another woman. My need to talk through those feelings was preemptively crushed by my belief that homosexuality was close to being an unpardonable sin—worse than any other form of sexual immorality. The message I heard from my childhood church was clear: Same sex attraction marked me as “other,” which meant that I could never please a God who proclaimed this desire and confusion as an abomination to himself.

The Key Difference Between Christianity and Islam | The Stream

The key difference between Christianity and Islam is the difference between Jesus and Muhammad. Jesus was a spiritual leader who laid down His life to save the world. Muhammad was a spiritual leader, who became a political leader, then a violent military leader. Jesus accomplished His mission by dying on the cross. Muhammad accomplished his mission (at least largely) by ruling by the sword.

How Do I Study a Specific Topic in the Bible?

Well we have been talking a lot in the last two weeks about Bible study. And we have a question today about how to read Scripture on a specific theme. Rosemary in Kentucky asks: “Hi Pastor John! Lately a friend and I have been discussing a specific topic that is prevalent throughout the New Testament. I have not done much personal study on the topic, and my first thought was: ‘I’ll just search for some articles about the topic on, or The Gospel Coalition and find out what the Bible says about it that way.’ Though I have a tremendous respect for both organizations, and many others that teach sound doctrine, I feel like I am taking the easy way out in reading the conclusions other people have come to after studying the Scriptures themselves. So my question is this: How should I go about studying a topic in Scripture in a comprehensive way that would allow me to have a firm grasp on what the Bible has to say about a topic without relying solely on the study and teaching of others to establish my understanding? But to do this, where do I begin?”

What's Love Got to Do with Transhumanism? | Wesley J. Smith

BreakPoint: A Faith Grounded in History

While it’s tempting to laugh at the state of history education, and it is really abysmal among most Americans, we should first look in the mirror. And by we, I mean Christians, those of us who follow a historical figure, who actually lived in history, who was born as part of the story of a nation that played a central role in human history, and who lived and died and rose again, in obedience to God the Father who, from all indications in Scripture, is a God concerned with time and place.

31 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.

If you stick to it, the least you’ll have is a great deal of work (and therefore, experience) under your belt by the year’s end.

On Israel, Most Hispanic Christians Are Ambivalent

The online survey of Americans was conducted January 11 – 23, 2017. The project was sponsored by the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and the Philos Project. Targeted sample was obtained from national online panels. This sample was screened to only include self-identified Latino/Hispanic adults who indicate a religious preference of Catholic or Protestant/Non-denominational. Maximum quotas and slight weights were used for gender, region, age, education, Catholic/Protestant, country of origin and generation immigrated to more accurately reflect the Hispanic Christian population using statistics published by Pew Research and the Census Bureau. The completed sample is 1,038 surveys. The sample provides 95 percent confidence that the sampling error does not exceed plus or minus 4.1 percent including weight effects. Margins of error are higher in sub-groups.

Evangelicals Tell Trump: Don’t Deport Christians to Face Genocide in Iraq

For most of the past decade, deportation to Iraq was never a possibility because the Iraqi government refused to grant papers to repatriate deportees from the US. That changed when, as part of a deal to be removed from President Donald Trump’s seven-country travel ban, Iraq agreed to once again begin accepting deportees—something the war-ridden nation hadn’t done since 2010.

Zakir Naik Calls Muhammad a Spiritually Blind Moron!

Support our videos on Patreon: Is Muhammad mentioned in the Bible? Muslim apologist Dr. Zakir Naik claims that Isaiah 29:12 is a prophecy about Muhammad. However, Isaiah 29:12 is about spiritually blind people who rebel against God and make excuses for rejecting his revelations. The passage goes on to say that God will punish these spiritually blind people by taking away their wisdom and intelligence. Hence, if Isaiah 29:12 is about Muhammad (as Zakir Naik claims), then Muhammad was a spiritually blind moron! Once again, Dr. Naik proves the opposite of what he intends to prove.

Noah: An Example of Faith

The people that the writer of Hebrews is addressing were under great pressure to give up on Christ and go back to their traditional Jewish belief. But here the writer says to consider Noah, to look at what his faith brought him. Think of what it took for Noah to be righteous in his generation. He constructed an Ark for the saving of his household, and for years he endured a world consumed with wickedness, which required complete faith in God’s faithfulness because he knew God was going to destroy the world. Therefore,

Does God Balance Blessings with Hardships?

God is good and only does what is good (Psalm 25:8; 119:68). That is because he is holy, righteous, and just (Exodus 15:11). We can trust that whatever he gives us is not a random balancing of the scales, or a rash response to something we’ve done. He is not an impersonal God who merely works to even out the blessings in our life. Rather, he is the God who gave up every blessing in heaven to take on human flesh and live in this fallen world so that he could endure the worst suffering on our behalf. And by his blood shed for us, he gives us the greatest blessing of all: eternity with him.

What Is a Worldview?

Abortion. Euthanasia. Pornography. Same-sex marriage. Transgender rights. Embryonic research. Genetic enhancement. Christians surveying the cultural landscape in the West have a clear sense that things are headed in a destructive direction. While most believers can easily identify the symptoms of decline, few feel competent to diagnose and address the root causes. There are many complex factors behind these developments, but one invaluable tool for better understanding and engaging with our culture is the concept of worldview. The sociological quakes and moral fissures we observe in our day are largely due to what we might call “cultural plate tectonics”: shifts in underlying worldviews and the collisions between them.

Four Ways to Witness to Atheists

While we shouldn’t be arrogant or belligerent, it isn’t loving to concede rational superiority to atheism — because it isn’t true. The atheist position is intellectually vacuous. Atheism is not an intellectual problem, but a heart problem. But Jesus and the apostles showed that the path to the heart usually passes through the head.

Evangelism, Iranian Style

The under-20 generation has the greatest potential to transform Iran. Most Iranian youth are secular in thinking, and the spirit of Islam has no control over them. They’re not afraid of Allah, the government, or death. They’re not interested in religion until they are presented with Christ, in whom they find salvation and purpose. Because of the killings after the 2009 election results, they are against public protest or violent uprising, but they’re open to the message that we share on satellite TV: Transform Iran without violence by first being transformed yourself, and then become an agent of transformation.

Jesus Said He’d Return Soon, So Where Is He?

Jesus said his return was soon. So where is he? And why has the church had to wait for so long? It’s the question from a listener named Ron. “Pastor John, I’m writing from Switzerland and have been greatly blessed by your ministry. I have a question with regards to the New Testament belief that Jesus would come very soon. As I was studying with our children the need to evaluate prophets by biblical criteria the following thought hit me: The Bible says in Deuteronomy 18 that a prophet whose predictions don’t come true is not sent by God and that he should not be feared. However, in the New Testament we find repeated evidence of people whom we would call inspired who evidently believed — and sometimes claimed — that Jesus would come back soon, even during the writer’s own lifetime. Examples would be 1 Peter 4:7; Matthew 24:34; 26:64; 1 Corinthians 10:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15–17; and 1 Corinthians 15:51. How can we still consider them authoritative while discarding modern-day messengers whose prophecies don’t materialize? I am a bit uneasy that at some stage our kids will tell us that Paul was wrong about 1 Corinthians 15:51 and so he’s not to be taken seriously.
