Free From God

I recall an online conversation I had with a skeptic about spiritual things. To gain some clarification, I asked if he was an atheist or agnostic. His response? “I’m free!” Now, although this in no way answers the question, it does illustrate what people think about religion. It’s some form of mental slavery that you must liberate yourself from. Then you can be free to live your life however you wish. And freedom is a very important thing!

An Open Letter to Graduates: Part 2

Eating poorly, lack of exercise, and lack of sleep will catch up to you. Every spring many of my students graduate and get ready for college. But every year some of them are back home by December having already dropped out. Why? One consistent reason is they simply don’t take care of their health. Depression is rampant in the university. Forty-six percent of college students said they felt hopeless at least once in the past year. While there can be many reasons for this, one prime reason is that students simply do not know how to take care of their health. The only way to do this is to determine ahead of time, like Daniel, that you are going to exercise, get good sleep, and make wise choices with what you eat. Like Daniel, have you purposed in your heart to be healthy?

2018 Biblical Archaeological Evidence: Archaeology Findings Prove Bible

In today’s world, many people question the reliability and validity of the Bible. There is a lot of doubt concerning Biblical historical accuracy, as many believe it is merely a book of fairy tales and myths. But what does the evidence suggest? Many might be surprised to find there is a copious amount of Biblical archaeological evidence supporting its veracity.

Christian Parents Raise Three Kids: 1 Agnostic, 1 Atheist, and 1 Christian

My parents have been devout Christians since before I was born in 1965. To my knowledge, they have never wavered in their faith. My dad and mom volunteered in the church bus ministry, Sunday School, VBS, on the church board, in the choir, and well, the list goes on. My Dad is a licensed minister, an ordained deacon, a volunteer chaplain at the hospital, and both of my parents are prayer warriors and sacrificial givers—both with their time and money.

Making Apologetics Personal: A Quick Lesson from John 4

My point is not that we should necessarily confront other people in their sin, as Jesus did in John 4. There is a time and place for that, as Scripture teaches (e.g., Matt 18:15-20). Rather, my point is that we apologists must not solely remain in the realm of speculative discussion—we need to “get in the game” and find a way to apply apologetics to life. The greater point of apologetics is not simply to learn the material for its own sake, but for the sake of changing lives. Jesus refused to keep religious issues entirely in the abstract. He made them personal. And so should we.

Why Should We Believe that Christianity is True? Part 1: The Trilemma

This is part one of a four-part series of essays attempting to answer that question. These essays will by no means exhaust the possible answers, but they will help to equip us as Christians to give “a reason for the hope that is in us” (1 Pet. 3:15). Below, I want to look at what I consider to be one of the most important arguments for the truth of Christianity. It was put forward in its most popular form by C.S. Lewis and is known as the ‘Lord, Liar, Lunatic’ argument, or the Trilemma .

Were Christians Really Persecuted in the First Century?

“In the first century, Christians were crucified, burned, and thrown to the wild animals simply for proclaiming the name of Christ. This was a period of immense persecution, and if Christians wanted to survive, they had to hide out from the governing authorities.” While there is some truth in this statement, it is certainly an overstatement. Yes, Christians were persecuted, but in the first century, most persecution was local and sporadic.

Atheists, Evidence, and Unreasonable Demands

Yesterday, I tweeted a link to my article " Is There Such a Thing as Rational Faith? " The point of that article was that faith and reason are not contradictory. One reply to that was a tweet by The_Apistevist, who identifies himself as an atheist on Twitter. He asked: "how can belief without evidence be considered rational?" Now, I had never claimed Christianity had no evidence, nor did I argue that one should never seek evidence in matters of faith.  Belief without evidence was his assumption.

Christians don't need to be embarrassed of their worldview

Every worldview offers a solution to a problem, but not every worldview accurately identifies the problem it is trying to solve. Christianity identifies the problem as our own persistent inclination toward bad behavior. We have a sin problem. But Christianity is more than a description of how to be good. Unlike other works-based theistic worldviews (i.e. Judaism, Mormonism or Islam), Christianity recognizes our inability to consistently “perform”. While other theistic worldviews encourage us to work hard and do our best to save ourselves, only Christianity acknowledges our inability to accomplish this task. Other religions offer a work regimen, Christianity offers hope. Only Christianity offers Jesus as the sacrifice for our sin. Christians don’t need to be embarrassed of their worldview; Christianity, when properly understood, offers hope and a solution to our dilemma.

Alleged Refutation of the Cambrian Explosion Confirms Abruptness, Vindicates Meyer  | Evolution News

Instead of refuting the abruptness of the Cambrian explosion, Daley et al. (2018) confirm that the fossil record of euarthropods is even more abrupt than often believed. How so? Because the oldest body fossils from crown group arthropods like trilobites indeed predate (!) their alleged ancestors by about three million years. The authors recognize that this is a problem. They admit, “It may seem counter-intuitive that crown group euarthropods appear at 521 Ma, while the first appearance of stem lineage euarthropods is not until 518 Ma.” To solve this temporal paradox the authors have to postulate a ghost lineage of stem euarthropods that predate the oldest fossil trilobites but left no record of body fossils. Such hypothetical ghost lineages are required by the unquestioned assumption of universal common descent. Surprisingly, they also appeal to the artifact hypothesis (“… stem lineage euarthropods lack biomineralized exoskeletons and require preservation of soft tissues …”) even though they themselves show in their work that the Burgess-Shale-type (BST) conditions for soft tissue preservation existed all the way down to the Ediacaran period.

China to End Control on Births? | Evolution News

When I traveled to China for a two-week tour in 2016, our guide spoke about the “One Child” policy and how it affected his family. It seems that his mother was six months pregnant when the policy went into effect, and she was forced to abort our guide’s sibling. The brutality of what happened to our guide’s family hit all of us like a punch in the gut. Frankly, I was surprised by his frankness.

My Story: From Agnostic to Christian Apologist

I was raised in a Christian home by wonderful committed Christian parents. We attended church three times a week and sometimes more. I remember sitting in sermon during Vacation Bible School (VBS) at a very young age (perhaps five or six) when I realized that I was a sinner and went forward during the invitation and prayed to receive Christ as my Savior. I went to church camp and VBS every summer; was heavily involved in my youth group. At age 16, I preached my first sermon in front of a congregation and was making plans to attend Bible College and Seminary.

25 Time Cannot Forgive Our Sin

God does not sweep sin under the rug with the broom of time. Our past sins have mouths, eyes, and legs. Though we try and silence our consciences, reminding them that it was last week, last month, last decade (besides, look how much we’ve reformed!), God’s anger towards our sin knows no remission or expiration date. Sin doesn’t rust or decompose before him. Time may seem to heal a human heart, but it does not remedy an offense against the divine. Just because we banish our sins from before our own eyes, they still stand in full view of his.

Have you determined to stand strong intellectually?

(72% vs. 15%). Your professors have a worldview and they will try to impose it on you. I am amazed at how many students have their belief system rocked when a professor questions the Bible, Jesus, or the evidence for creation. One of the best things you can do is to go into the university with your eyes wide open for intellectual challenges. Expect them! One of the great things about Christianity is that there are answers to tough questions. Let me say it again so it sinks in—there are answers to tough questions. There are brilliant Christian scholars providing thoughtful answers to the toughest questions your professors will raise. If you really want to find an answer you can find it. Many young people don’t want to do the work so they simply adopt the views of their professors and end up walking away from their faith. — Sean McDowell (from, An Open Letter to Graduates: Part 2 )

35 When Marriage Is Miles Away: On Long-Distance Dating

My advice: Be slower to declare clarity about the future in a long-distance relationship. The hurdles should keep us from hurrying to a decision to marry. Be skeptical of the romantic euphoria you feel after a month of late-night talks or your first couple of weekends together. Give yourself more time to get to know each other. Plan for trips to spend time with people in each other’s lives. Be honest about the limitations of technology alone — as great as technology can be for dating — in developing a relationship and discerning each other’s readiness to wed.

38 Six Things Submission Is Not

Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening. (1 Peter 3:1–6)

Seminary Couldn’t Teach Me Not to Find Identity in Ministry

My first job was working for a large retail store. I don’t recall if it was store policy or not, but we often heard the phrase, “The customer is always right.” No matter what we did, we needed to ensure our customers had a great experience and stayed happy while they were there. While this mindset may be good for business, it’s a bad habit for a future pastor to develop. I graduated seminary ready to proclaim the truth and do the right thing in every situation, no matter the cost. Sure enough, my rosy idealism ran into a brutal truth—people in churches rarely get angry with their pastor over his sermons or doctrinal stances. Their frustration is usually tied to something much less spiritual. Disinterested common sense says if people get angry with you over things that don’t matter, that’s their problem. But church conflict is rarely disinterested. When church members are angry, they do one of three things: they leave, they stop giving, or they attend more than ever to oppose you. If they leave, others wonder what you did to make them angry and why you won’t go beg them back.

Kissinger and Girard on Artificial Intelligence | Evolution News

Ultimately, the term artificial intelligence may be a misnomer. To be sure, these machines can solve complex, seemingly abstract problems that had previously yielded only to human cognition. But what they do uniquely is not thinking as heretofore conceived and experienced. Rather, it is unprecedented memorization and computation. Because of its inherent superiority in these fields, AI is likely to win any game assigned to it. But for our purposes as humans, the games are not only about winning; they are about thinking. By treating a mathematical process as if it were a thought process, and either trying to mimic that process ourselves or merely accepting the results, we are in danger of losing the capacity that has been the essence of human cognition.

Evangelizing the Cultural Christian - Christian Research Institute

Third, we often need to point out that the Sinner’s Prayer never has saved anyone. I used to cohost a call-in talk radio program. One day we said, “Our contention today is that no one has ever been saved by praying the Sinner’s Prayer in the history of Christianity. If you disagree with us, give us a call.” All five lines immediately lit up. The first bewildered caller asked, “You’re saying no one has ever been saved by praying the Sinner’s Prayer?” I said, “That’s right; the Sinner’s Prayer has never saved anyone in the history of Christianity—not even once.” I then asked, “For by grace you’ve been saved through…?” The caller paused and asked meekly, “Faith?” I replied, “Right! Faith. You’re saved by grace through faith. The prayer itself doesn’t save you.” I then pointed out that I’m not opposed to the Sinner’s Prayer and that I hope to pray it with people in the future. But the prayer itself has no salvific power. Rather, the prayer is an expression of faith. It is a prayer of repentance and commitment to Jesus for one who has come to believe the gospel. Sadly, many Christians have said, as I used to say many years ago, “Pray this prayer and you’ll be saved.
