Teach Kids How to Defend Their Faith

I resisted the trend at first. My kids will ride their bikes like kids have done for decades, I thought. But one day my son fell off his bike and hit his head shockingly hard. Fortunately he was OK, but the incident awakened me to the reality of what can happen in the blink of an eye. We were off buying helmets for my kids faster than you could say "sizes 3, 4 and 5, please."

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: Greg's Top Ten Picks of the Week!

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.

Is It Possible for an Infinite Number of Past Events to Exist?

For more resources visit: http://www.reasonablefaith.org In February 2015, Dr William Lane Craig visited Rutgers University in New Jersey at the invitation of the campus Christian group Ratio Christi. He gave an evening lecture on the subject “The Existence of God and the Beginning of the Universe” to a packed auditorium of several hundred students. Although some pushback was anticipated, the audience, which was composed of both believers and nonbelievers, proved to be very open, and a wonderful time of interaction for an hour and a half afterwards took place.

WHAT IS MAN?: Adam, Alien or Ape? Special Pre-order Price Only $3.99!

Dr. Andrews’ credentials as a scientist and theologian are many—he is one of those individuals who has more letters after his name than there are in the alphabet (ok, yes, that’s a bit of hyperbole there), but he is also a truly humble man. At 85 years old he remains as sharp and well-spoken today as he was back when I first knew him— back when he was, well… 80. He’s even publicly debated Richard Dawkins!

Did Jesus Have a Wife? | Cold Case Christianity

Yes, if scraps like this are to be trusted over the New Testament gospels, there is a lot to rethink. But there’s no reason to trust anything other than the canonical gospels. They are the earliest and most reliable descriptions we have of Jesus. The picture of Jesus in these gospels was consistently repeated from apostolic teacher to student, from the original eyewitnesses to the second generation of believers (like Ignatius and Polycarp), to the third and fourth generation of disciples (like Irenaeus and Hippolytus) and beyond. This picture of Jesus as the unmarried, miracle working Son of God who died on the cross and rose from the dead was repeated for 300 years before this particular scrap of papyrus was ever penned.

Did C.S. Lewis Warn Against Christian Hedonism?

What he says is “Fully to enjoy is to glorify.” He probably meant “Fully to enjoy is to glorify fully .” I doubt that C.S. Lewis meant — and I’m sure he didn’t, given other things he says — I doubt that he meant the only glory God gets from our enjoyment of God is the glory he gets when our joy is total, complete, full, or perfect. No, Lewis doesn’t think that. Now, whatever Lewis meant, that’s not what I mean in the summary of Christian Hedonism.

Beauty as Evidence for Intelligent Design

The existence of ugliness, pain, sorrow, and in particular human evil, are often used as evidence that there is no designer, or more specifically no God, because if he were good he would not permit suffering. The world would need to be a perfect place in order to support the idea of a good designer.

Monopoly and the Meaninglessness of Life

No wonder there is so much emotional and relational emptiness. No wonder there is so much addiction and depression. If there is no purpose to life, then does it really matter what we do? We can try to pretend our lives have meaning, but like the imaginary game of “Monopoly,” each move is ultimately pointless.

Why Science Does Not Disprove Miracles | Stand to Reason

Recently, when I asked an atheist why he was an atheist, the first reason he gave was that “science has disproved God.” When I asked what he meant by that, he started listing miracles in the Bible—such as the virgin birth—that were impossible for him to believe “because of science.”

Why the Universe Is the Way It Is - Kindle edition by Hugh Ross. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

I've read quite a few books in Christian apologetics but no where have I found a book such as this. Hugh is if you didn't know on the Autism spectrum and his talent is that he can fit enormous complex concepts together and make sense out of them (a paraphrase of his words). It definitely shows in this book. It is a fully consistent scientific and biblical look at the reason for all of creation and how it in his view fits together. When I've seen Hugh challenged at atheist confereces, I've personally never seen anyone challenge his science, (unlike a Ken Ham) they just challenge his theistic implications. This book is fascinating, even if you happen to disagree with him I promise you will learn something you didn't know. I've already bought an extra copy for some of my family and will probably be getting a few more for friends.

The Overturning of Roe v. Wade and the Possibility of Cultural Change | The Stream

I fear we will on the other hand have much more difficulty finding common ground on a solution to gay “marriage.” Many people believe it’s still okay for the government to have its sticky fingers all over the institution of marriage, and to merely favor real marriage with legal benefits while denying gay unions those benefits; but such a solution is to me painfully short-sighted, failing to recognize that such a state of affairs is not sustainable; it will simply shift the next time the radical left gains power. We ought, in my opinion, to be working towards extricating marriage in its entirety from the domain of the government and placing it back in the hands of the religious community, complete with total 1st amendment protections for consciencious abstention from “marriages” one does not believe are legitimate.

Helping Our Kids to See God When They Can't Actually SEE Him

The other night, as I was tucking my five-year-old son into bed, I was encouraging him to pray. He asked Jesus into his heart nearly a year ago and has such a passion for studying the Bible, but he still struggles with the concept of prayer. And I have to admit, this has been a more difficult thing to teach than I originally thought it would be. I want him to know he can pray to God any time about anything but I don’t want him to think God is up there to grant all of our wishes. We are to take everything to God in prayer, but we are to ask according to the Lord’s will. That is often hard for adults to understand, so it is definitely a difficult concept for a five-year-old to grasp. He has moments where his prayer requests are so sweet and thoughtful, like when he would pray for his Grandmama when she was battling leukemia. But then, sometimes he’s asking to win a t-ball game. But honestly, is that so different from our prayers at times?

5 Misconceptions About Parenting That Will Hinder Your Children from Coming to Jesus

The answers would certainly vary, but how often do we hear a parent say, "I want my child to have learned piety in our family?" Would even Christian parents give such an answer? One definition of piety is "devotion to religious duties." The faithful observance of duty in a culture as feeling-oriented as ours sounds less than interesting. Yet devotion to duty ensures that what is right and important gets done, however, we feel about it at the moment. Devotion to duty is a part of good character, and devotion to religious duty-piety-is an essential part of godly character.

5 Bad Arguments You Shouldn't Use Against Skeptics

Apologetics, by definition, is the art and science of making a defense. In the case of Christian apologetics, it would be the art and science of defending the Christian faith. The weight of such a matter is important for the listening ears. Therefore, if we implement really good reasons for the Christian faith we will make inroads with skeptics. However, the use of bad reasons will cease conversation. With this in mind, here are five really bad arguments you should never use with skeptics.

Do Greek Gospels Mean Weak Gospels?

Recently, while on a trip across the country, I was reading a book that repeated a common argument against the gospels being eyewitness accounts.  Here’s the basic argument:  There’s no way that the gospels were written by people who were actually with Jesus.  In particular, the books of Matthew and John could not have been written by any of Jesus’ disciples.  Why?  Because Jesus and his disciples spoke Aramaic, yet the earliest existing copies of the gospels were written in Greek…and good Greek at that.  There’s just no way that these semi-literate people from the backwater of Judea could have written these books in Greek.

A Logical Faith

A mother choked back tears as she related the heartbreaking news. Her son Miko, studying at a state university, had abandoned his Christian faith. Miko's major was psychology, a field where most theories are secular and often hostile to a Christian worldview. (Early 20th-century psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud set the tone, treating Christianity as a symptom of emotional immaturity.)

“My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food...when I meditate on you, O Lord.” Psalm 63:5-6. The word “as” (כְּמֹ֤ו) forces the all-important issue. Does our soul taste God “as” our tongue tastes food? Are we alive to spiritual pleasures, or only physical sensations?

The difference between bypassing the cross and taking up the cross is the difference between death and life. Yet many of our churches today preach the former and ignore the latter. May God help us!

Hope for People with Food Allergies

“Man shall not live by bread alone” (Matt. 4:4). But what happens if you can’t eat bread at all? Or fruit? Or dairy? Or eggs? For a growing number of people, this is their world. This is my world. If you don’t suffer from food allergies, you likely know or love someone who does—a brother, a sister, a wife, a child, a church member. As Christians—and members of Christ’s body—we have an opportunity to bear one another’s burdens (Gal. 6:2) as we live and eat alongside people with food allergies. Significant Personal Trial During my sophomore year of college, I began to experience intense stomach pain that rapidly worsened. The next five years were marked by symptoms ranging from irritating to debilitating. After countless doctor visits, medical tests, physical lethargy, and soul fatigue, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and placed on an immune system suppressant. Several flare-ups, lingering illness, more strong medications, and two additional diagnoses later, I was left holding a stack of pamphlets about treatment and diet. I had no idea where to begin.

Is the Origin of Life a Scientific Question?

A better approach might be to assert that the only reason why we have not observed abiogenesis is that it so rarely happens. That is a logical possibility, but it has no empirical evidence to support it. Belief in abiogenesis is the reason that so much attention is given to the search for evidence of life elsewhere in the universe. This search takes many forms, such as programs leading to the discovery of extrasolar planets, planets orbiting other stars. So far, we have found about 2,000 other planets, but none are clearly earth-like, that is, suitable for life. Another manifestation for the search for life elsewhere is the seemingly never-ending missions to Mars. Each mission to Mars reveals no evidence for life on Mars (and frequently shows just the opposite to be the case), which is followed by the next mission that appears to be based upon the premise that we just haven’t looked in the right parts of Mars yet. Then there is SETI, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. SETI operates by listening for radio broadcasts from planets orbiting other stars. The first SETI program was in 1960.
