The Atheist Delusion MP4

From Living Waters, creators of the award-winning TV program "The Way of the Master" and the hit movies "180" and "Evolution vs. God," comes the powerful film "The Atheist Delusion." Executive produced by TV co-host and best-selling author Ray Comfort ( Hell's Best Kept Secret , Scientific Facts in the Bible ). Having to prove the existence of God to an atheist is like having to prove the existence of the sun, at noon on a clear day. Yet millions are embracing the foolishness of atheism. "The Atheist Delusion" pulls back the curtain and reveals what is going on in the mind of those who deny the obvious. It introduces you to a number of atheists who you will follow as they go where the evidence leads, find a roadblock, and enter into a place of honesty that is rarely seen on film.

Yes, Christians Are Hypocrites—If by “Hypocrite” You Mean “Sinner”

Andy Bannister explains that, contrary to Christopher Hitchens’s claim, religion isn’t what poisons everything. The problem is much deeper, more pervasive, and far more personal. The problem is us. We poison everything. And, as it happens, that is precisely why we need Jesus. Far from contradicting Christianity, the existence of...

Prayers of the People form - Rise

Also read this volume so that you can be pray for this vision of the Rise campaign: that New York would be a more just, beautiful, merciful, and kind city because the people within it are living more and more for God and their neighbor. What if the culture rising out of New York had the gospel in its DNA? Because of New York’s influence as a leading global city, it could catalyze renewal far beyond just one city. This is a vision that must begin and end in prayer. It begins in prayer because we could never accomplish all we hope to do in our own power. It ends in prayer because only that way will we increasingly become like our God who calls for the peace and flourishing of all.

The Gospel Coalition 2017 National Conference

In this workshop, we'll talk about the Rev. Oscar Pfister, an evangelical Protestant pastor, who was a close associate and friend of Sigmund Freud. Although Freud respected Pfister as both a cleric and a scholar, Pfister focused on points of his agreement with Freud's research and psychoanalysis rather than making much of the faulty presuppositions in Freud's worldview. Most disturbingly, it seems as though this "man of God" whom Freud and his whole family clearly loved, never insisted on the gospel's demands on Freud's life. Not only was Freud never converted, he was lulled into thinking there were powerful areas of overlap between his worldview and Pfister's. The story is a cautionary tale for those who mistake "relational evangelism" and "cultural engagement" for gospel-oriented worldview apologetics predicated on incommensurable presuppositions.

The Story of Iran’s Church in Two Sentences

As a result, more Iranians have become Christians in the last 20 years than in the previous 13 centuries put together since Islam came to Iran. In 1979, there were an estimated 500 Christians from a Muslim background in Iran. Today, there are hundreds of thousands—some say more than 1 million. Whatever the exact number, many Iranians are turning to Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Fiery hot air balloon crash kills passengers in Texas

Why we should question Christianity

As a follower of Christ and someone who engages in apologetics regularly, I am always open to questions about why Christianity is true and so forth. I think there are many people who genuinely seek truth and answers but nonetheless they do have some intellectual hurdles to get by. I was one of those people. I didn’t have a Damascus road experience, I had a slow, gradual movement into Christianity that was through what I think was logic, reason and a lot of questions. Because of how I was brought into Christianity, I want to help other people who are like me, or were like me, in that I can possibly answer questions and by the grace of God, help people into the Christian faith, it’s where I feel I’ve been called to be.

13 America's Extreme Abortion Laws

But it gets even more interesting and relevant to current debates. The study also found that over sixty percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortions, and nearly eight in ten want abortion clinics held to the same standard as other outpatient surgery centers—a rule the U.S. Supreme Court just struck down in Texas. And speaking of the Supreme Court, seventy percent of those surveyed say doctors who perform abortions should be required to have hospital admitting privileges—another Texas requirement declared unconstitutional by the Court. And most remarkably, Americans agree by a margin of 20 percent that religious healthcare providers should not be forced to perform abortions against their deeply-held beliefs.

Did Jesus Contradict Himself by Calling People Fools?

Jesus did not focus just on an individual’s actions such as murder but also on the heart and attitude behind those actions. A heart full of anger toward someone can lead to insults, name calling, and even murder. In other words, murder is not the only symptom of a corrupted heart, which is the main point Jesus made.

Corporate Worship Is a Call to Love

Instead of minimizing others, and seeking to block them out to focus on Jesus, we can ask if we have needlessly offended anyone, or withheld harmony. Are we at peace with our fellow worshipers? It’s a cue to check our hearts. Worship of God in the old covenant was not meant to be divorced from love for others (Matthew 5:23–24); neither is it in the new.

Seth Dunn’s “Pulpit and Pen” Hit Piece on Nabeel Qureshi Seth Dunn is a Christian blogger who writes for “Pulpit and Pen,” a website founded by JD Hall that claims to promote "discernment." Dunn recently posted an article titled: “Resetting the Evangelical Mindset on Nabeel Qureshi.” Since Dunn's hit piece on Nabeel Qureshi is filled with blunders, we can only wonder how the writers for "Pulpit and Pen" have convinced themselves that they are champions of "discernment." In this video, David Wood goes through Dunn's entire article, point by point, showing that Dunn's attacks against Nabeel Qureshi are based on sheer ignorance. Because Dunn is planning to run for President of the Southern Baptist Convention, his lack of discernment should be a concern for Christians.

Wayne Grudem - Why Voting for Donald Trump Is a Morally Good Choice

Some of my Christian friends tell me they can’t in good conscience vote for Donald Trump because, when faced with a choice between “the lesser of two evils,” the morally right thing is to choose neither one. They recommend voting for a third-party or write-in candidate.

Count the Cost in the New America

Jesus calls his disciples to be innocent as doves and wise as serpents (Matthew 10:16). Christians should be compassionate and tender toward all people, especially unbelievers, because all are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:27) and, without Christ, are sheep without a shepherd (Matthew 9:36). Yet, Christians must be bold and clear regarding biblical truth, never calling evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20). Every conversation is an opportunity to plant seeds of the gospel — with clarity, compassion, confidence, and gentleness — in the lives of those around us, trusting in the work of the Holy Spirit to bring lasting conviction and change.

Devils in the Church - R.C. Sproul Jr.

That craftiness is brought back to the fore for us when Paul speaks of the devil in 2 Corinthians 11:14 where he tells us the devil transforms himself into an angel of light. Well if he’s crafty, wouldn’t you think he would want us to forget to look for him as an angel of light? Don’t we tend to think that when the devil shows up, we recognize it because we’re finding ourselves overcome with some kind of desire, some sort of illicit desire. We think that when he begins to influence us we start to grow fangs, our eyes turn to fire, and our muscles grow Hulk-like. And then we pursue our madness like a bull in a china shop.

Live stream Abdu Murray, Sean McDowell, and a Q&A panel July 29 7:00pm-9:20pm EDT:


By Sean McDowell Before becoming a graduate professor of apologetics last year, I spent a decade teaching apologetics full time to high school students at a Christian school in Southern California. In fact, I still teach one high school Bible class simply because I love it ! I also have the privilege of speaking to thousands of young people each year on all sorts of apologetics-related subjects. There are some lessons I have learned—many the hard way—about how to teach apologetics to young people. I trust these will be helpful and encouraging as you aim to equip and challenge the next generation. DOES APOLOGETICS STILL MATTER? It is not uncommon to read a blog or hear a speaker denounce the importance of apologetics today. In fact, many have claimed we live in a postmodern culture in which apologetics no longer matters. Yet William Lane Craig is right—this sort of thinking is a disastrous misdiagnosis of contemporary culture. 1 Ironically, we have witnessed the emergence of an apologetics renaissance right when many critics claimed postmodernism made apologetics passé.

Being Real About Being Real

Father in heaven, I am so grateful for my Millennial brothers and sisters. Their earnestness to live real honors you and is a pointer to your existence — that there is such a thing as ultimate Reality. I pray that their “love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment” (Philippians 1:9). I pray that they will “know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge [and] be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:19). And I pray that they will ultimately experience more profoundly authentic community than they have imagined and that you will use this precious generation that’s as big as (or bigger than) the Baby Boomers to make an even bigger impact for the global glory of Jesus Christ and the completion of the Great Commission. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

I had quite a journey last season, but not just in miles covered. I met incredible people who opened my eyes and my mind to new ideas and new ways of thinking about faith, the world and all of humanity. I barely scratched the surface of what we can learn, and I’m looking forward to continuing this search for the meaning of life and religion and everything in between.


The roots of abortion are deeply and intimately connected to racism and eugenics. The effort to legalize abortion and drive its agenda was run, almost exclusively, by white racists and white funders (most of whom, incidentally, were men—so much for women’s reproductive rights).

Why ‘No Creed But the Bible’ Is Misguided

Following this chapter, Bird provides a brief critique of the Creed. He observes, as many others have, that the Apostles’ Creed moves from Jesus’s birth directly to his death “with no reference to all of his life, teaching, and earthly mission” (85). While Bird’s point is well taken, I do wonder why he felt the need to evaluate something that seems to be outside the scope of both the Apostles’ Creed and this book. He even proceeds to suggest the omission is “attributable to the fact that the life of Jesus was not a major point of contention in the second-century church, whereas more ferocious debates were raged over Jesus’s identity and his relationship to God the Father” (85). And earlier he observes: “Most of the creeds were written in response to some heresy or doctrinal controversy” (23). In light of these explanations I wonder if it’s right to call the Creed deficient, as Bird does, or if it’s better to simply understand the Creed as historically situated.


“Now repentance is no fun at all. It is something much harder than merely eating humble pie. It means unlearning all the self-conceit and self-will that we have been training ourselves into for thousands of years. It means killing part of yourself, undergoing a kind of death. In fact, it needs a good man to repent. And here comes the catch. Only a bad person needs to repent: only a good person can repent perfectly. The worse you are the more you need it and the less you can do it. The only person who could do it perfectly would be a perfect person – and he would not need it.

The Death of God Is Greatly Exaggerated: An Interview with Eric Metaxas

If religion in America is dying, then someone will have to explain Eric Metaxas. The happy warrior for a muscular Christianity displays nothing but confidence about the durability of belief in modern America. In fact, he seems to hope more Christians will ignore the pressure—from the media, the courts and other liberal bastions—to keep clear of the public sphere. The message has made him especially popular with evangelical Christians.

He recently made quite a stir when he announced that next year an academic publication will reveal the discovery of a first-century fragment from the Gospel of Mark.

The Attractional Church’s Growing Irrelevance

Now what about the negative. Everyone I’ve interacted with all had some exposure to the church – either growing up in one or occasionally visiting one for holidays. Perhaps that’s unfair but being a 5 year old church plant that has outstripped the size of my “traditional” confessional church – that’s the majority of stories I’ve heard. The worship service is orderly but is more like a rock concert in terms of volume and song choice. Their low view of the Lord’s Supper is troublesome since “fencing the table” seems like an inconvenience having had done so twice within the year I visited. How they say their preaching is expositional when it skews more towards being topical and geared for application. In turn, the discernment among the congregation so far appears to be lacking as word-of-faith lite preaching is deemed being solid and biblical to their ears. Additionally, as a “younger” gen-x male, the almost complete utter absence of older, wiser saints in the congregation is problematic. A leadership primarily composed of fellow millenials, while not necessarily bad, makes me question the wisdom of their particular practices as well as their defenses of such.

One way is to redefine failure. What is failure? Failure is not failing to reach your goal. Failure is not having a goal. Failure is not failing to hit your target. Failure is not having a target. Failure is not falling down. Failure is refusing to get back up. You’re never a failure until you quit. So if you’re attempting something for the glory of God, that’s a good thing. Failure is not trying and not accomplishing anything. Failure is failing to try.

Defending Your Faith in the Classroom

My first piece of advice to this student is to be thoughtful. Exchanges with those in authority need to be judicious and part of that is weighing what the reaction to an objection may be. Jesus told us, "Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves" (Matt 10:16, ESV) and that applies here. The professor is the "man with the microphone," which means he controls the conversation. That also means you probably won't be able to have a sustained argument in class, which is appropriate since that's really not what the class is for anyway.

Fall Course Offering: The Pentateuch

What is   the relationship of the Old Testament with the New Testament? Has the New Testament rendered the Old Testament void? Why wasn’t Moses able to enter the Promised Land? Why are there so many laws given to Israel? Who is Melchizedek, and why he is he in the Bible? Did angels breed with humans to create a race of giants? How old is the earth? Why was Cain’s offering not accepted while Abel’s offering was? There are many questions surrounding the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch. The Pentateuch is foundational for the rest of Scripture. Christians readily recognize the importance of the Creation narrative, the record of the Fall, the covenant of God with Abraham, the Exodus of Israel from Egypt, and the establishment of the Passover. However, there is a fair amount of ignorance pertaining to the overall theology of the Pentateuch. The authors of the other biblical books frequently refer to the Pentateuch in their writings. Jesus himself quoted more from Deuteronomy than any other book. The Pentateuch is crucial for the development of a well-balanced theology.

Why the Appearance of Design in Biology Is a Problem for Atheistic Naturalism

As unlikely and unexpected as it may be, life exists in our universe , and just as researchers stipulate to the appearance of fine-tuning in the cosmos , scientists also stipulate to the appearance of design in biological organisms . Richard Dawkins would be the first to agree: “Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose.” Many other scientists affirm this observation and extend it to include the larger ecosystems in which many symbiotic organisms are dependent on one another for their survival. Smith College professor of biological sciences, Robert Dorit says, “The apparent fit between organisms seems to suggest some higher intelligence at work, some supervisory gardener bringing harmony and color to the garden.” For scientists looking for an explanation within the “garden” to avoid the inference of an external “supervisory gardener,” this appearance of design is difficult to explain.

Be Known for What You’re for, Not Just What You’re Against

Do Christians know what they actually are for? Can they articulate it in a graceful and non-judging way? Do they understand God's story and what he is actually trying to do? Can they communicate the positives of God's plan for sex, money, justice, marriage, humility, economics, etc.? Can they continue to watch the secularization of society and not fight against it but instead offer a new way full of life and hope and peace? Will their lives reflect theses truths or will it reflect compromise and hypocrisy?

4 Ways Christians Can Be Better with Their Money

I was apprehensive to click this article link, because I didn't want to open it to hear the, although true and valid - overdone list of tithing, giving, saving, and the over-usage of the word "stewardship"(lucky for you, it was only used once;) ) I think your list covers the most basic approach to getting on top of your finances, which is appreciated by those who are already overwhelmed by their debt. To be advised that I need to just give more and invest wisely in markets I know nothing about only causes me more hopelessness than when I started my journey to monetary security. What I gather from your article is that there are simple (if not easy) steps one can take NOW to getting above water with their money, and that sticking with it will develop a habit that makes these things easier and easier to accomplish. I think we can forget sometimes that the practical steps we take to being responsible with our funds is an act of worship, even when it's not tithing or being spent directly on ministry. Fiscal responsibility IS obedience to God, in whatever shape it takes. Thank you for sharing this article.
