New Evidences The Gospels Are Based On Eyewitness Testimony - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

One particularly frequent objection which one encounters from our atheist detractors is the claim that there is no solid evidence that the gospels were written by its claimed authors. The gospel biographies concerning Jesus, we are told, were originally anonymous — that is to say, they had no name attached to them and the authors to which they are attributed were appended only decades (or perhaps even centuries) later. This is, of course, a curious claim since we lack possession of the original authographs but rely on literally thousands of meticulously transcribed manuscripts, in addition to Scripture quotations from early church writers. Did the gospels originally have the names of their pertinent authors attached to them? The bottom line is that we have no hard evidence either way. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have any evidence as to who wrote them!

Five Reasons God Wants Christian Women to Do Apologetics

I thank God for creating rational, intelligent, thinking humans, each of whom is either male or female. His plan. He commands each of us to love Him with all our hearts and minds and souls and strength and to love others as ourselves, and to speak the truth in love. His plan. The highest love is to give everlasting life, and God has done that through Jesus. His plan. He commands us to proclaim the gospel to humans who do not know Him or His great gift of eternal life, so they might experience Him eternally and bring glory to Him. His plan. Gender does not negate His commands. The command of 1 Peter 3:15-16 defines apologetics. The woman at the well met Christ and ran to tell everyone, presumably both genders, what she had experienced. Priscilla and Aquilla taught Apollos. This blog acknowledges that women as well as men have the privilege and calling to spread the gospel with the people God puts in their path; it is not a call to overthrow the pulpit. This website is a valuable resource in helping us learn how to be better prepared for our work.

What Fewer Christians in America Means for Christian Parents

Study after study shows the trend of fewer people identifying as Christians, and more people identifying as atheist, agnostic, or “nothing in particular.” Frankly, I don’t think most of us even need the studies to find that out. It’s blatantly obvious in the media, in the government, in schools, and online.

Why Are You a Christian Believer? | Cold Case Christianity

These Christian brothers and sisters have intuitions and experiences that incline them to believe Christianity is true long before they’ve actually investigated the case. They’re correct, but when challenged to tell others why they believe Christianity is true, they sound like every other non-Christian theistic believer. Their defenses seldom stand up to aggressive challenges and are often less than persuasive. Why should atheists accept the testimonial experiences of Christians when Christians themselves don’t accept the testimonial experiences of other believing groups—or of atheists? Now, more than ever, it’s time to develop a Forensic Faith. It’s time to know what you believe and why you believe it.

Where Apologetics Is Most Useful Today

In today’s largely secular world, apologetics is often a key ingredient in evangelism because many people are totally ignorant of what Christians believe and practice, and what they think they know is often erroneous. Prior to the 1960s, most Americans had direct contact with the Christian worldview and were familiar with fundamental Christian beliefs. Their parents probably took them to church, at least occasionally. Perhaps they attended Sunday school or vacation Bible school. Certainly, they watched the Ten Commandments (1956), Ben-Hur (1959), The Greatest Story Even Told (1965), or other movies popular during that era that narrated biblical stories. Most Americans knew that Jesus Christ was the Son of God—even if they didn’t know exactly what that meant. They had heard of Jesus’ resurrection, Adam and Eve, Moses crossing the Red Sea, David and Goliath, and Daniel in the lion’s den. They were familiar with the Ten Commandments and could name a few. They knew that Christmas and Easter celebrated Christian events.

Yet Another Reason to Believe Our Finite Universe Points to the Existence of God

According to these theories, the expansion of the universe would eventually slow under the gravitational attraction of its own mass, resulting in matter flying past itself in close proximity as the universe contracted to a region of incredible concentration. The universe would then appear to “bounce back” from this gravitational cycle, beginning yet another period of expansion. This would therefore explain the expansion we observe in our universe without having to acknowledge this expansion as evidence of a universe with a single origination event (known as a cosmic singularity). Instead of a universe that is expanding from its single point of origin, oscillating models describe a universe that is cycling between expansion and contraction (we simply happen to exist in an expansion period for the universe).

Books - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

Correct, Not Politically Correct: How Same Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone Why not legalize same-sex marriage? Who could it possibly hurt? Using sound reasoning and evidence—not religion—award-winning author Frank Turek shows that everyone will be hurt including children, the nation, and even homosexuals themselves. Turek provides concise answers to objections about equal rights, discrimination, and being born a certain way, and he exposes the real reason gay activists are trying to impose same-sex marriage on the country without a single vote from the people. Turek’s message is direct but respectful. It is correct, not politically correct. And it is a message that we must not ignore. For details, see ImpactApologetics.com .

The United States of Ambivalence

“Ambivalence” is not such a bad posture for Christians to adopt toward America, however. We have always had reasons to celebrate and reasons to lament America’s history. Even in 1776, Christians shared in the founding of America, but they did not dominate in the new nation’s leadership. Many of our founding principles accorded with Christian ones, but horrid violence toward Native Americans and the sinful institution of chattel slavery contradicted the Founders’ talk of universal liberty and God-given rights.

You Don’t Need to Sit at Jesus’s Feet

If we envy the disciples, it’s not because we just haven’t learned to be content with our time in Christian history. If we’d rather be sitting at Jesus’s feet listening to him teach us the Bible, our problem isn’t timing — our problem is that we’re ignoring what Jesus himself said. Between learning from Jesus on a mountainside, and hunching over your Bible with fellow Christians in a cramped apartment, Jesus tells us quite clearly which situation is better.

Breaking News - Sister of the Earliest Complete Old Testament Found - Biblical Studies

The Greek New Testament, Produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge has been created under the oversight of editors Dr. Dirk Jongkind (St Edmund’s College, University of Cambridge) and Dr. Peter Williams (Tyndale House, Cambridge). While a few trusted Greek texts are in print, significant advances have been made in Greek translation studies of the New Testament since a standard text was adopted by academics in 1975. Together with their team, they have taken a rigorously philological approach to reevaluating the standard text – reexamining spelling and paragraph decisions as well as allowing more recent discoveries related to  scribal habits to inform editorial decisions. Ideal for students, scholars and pastors alike, and published to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, The Greek New Testament, Produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge is a groundbreaking contribution to biblical scholarship.

Exchange Your Dreams for God’s Plans

The disappointments or disruptions may not make sense to us in the middle of the transition — by definition, they probably will not. When we’re called to lay aside our plan and live something different — waiting in a longer season of singleness, getting passed over for a promotion at work, rehabbing from an injury or illness — it’s hard to understand why God would force us to walk this journey instead of giving us what we want.

How Much Sleep Is Too Much Sleep?

This episode will launch on the evening of the Fourth of July, so many Americans will be sleep-deprived tonight, which is timely, because we have an email from a listener named Ashley who writes in to ask how much sleep is a sign of personal laziness? And how little sleep is a sign of faithless arrogance. “Hello Pastor John! My question for you is about sleep. I have heard opposing opinions ranging from some saying that sleep is a very necessary humbling reminder of our mortality to the others explaining that we must sacrifice everything, including sleep, to be able to utilize our time on earth to glorify the Lord. What are your thoughts on this? Is it more glorifying to God to utilize his gift of rest through sleep or to capitalize on the time we have to go sleep-deprived in order to more fully serve him?”

Today's Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics Plus Four FREE!

Like the acclaimed Apologetics Study Bible that has sold 115,000+ copies, the Apologetics Study Bible for Students will anchor younger Christians in the truths of Scripture by equipping them with thoughtful and practical responses for whenever the core issues of their faith and life are challenged. Multiple research studies have shown that spiritual focus often weakens among teenagers as they head into the attention-dividing realm of young adulthood. Up to 66% of them leave church altogether. The Apologetics Study Bible for Students works against that trend by helping this audience begin to better articulate its beliefs. In addition to the complete HCSB text and dozens of articles collected from today’s most popular youth leaders, including general editor Sean McDowell.

Fare Well, Liberty Bell

Writing in The Genevan Reformation and the American Founding , David W. Hall identifies six legacies from the Protestant Reformation — interlocking themes that are deeply embedded in the idea of American citizenship. While these six legacies of Calvinism may no longer be quite so widely embraced by the popular culture, they remain on this 239th Independence Day, thank God, still championed and treasured by tens of millions of American citizens, not all of whom are Christians or even know that the liberties they treasure have roots in the Protestant Reformation, arguably the greatest human-rights movement in all of human history. These ideas are now known throughout the world as American ideas:

BreakPoint: Time to Thicken up the Church

Think of the first-century church in Jerusalem as described in Acts 2 or the persecuted house church communities in China. The church was established by Christ to be the place of our primary relationships and loyalty, where individuals and families both invest of themselves and receive help, encouragement, rebuke and blessing. But in the age of “dating the church,” it’s too often a consumerist experience, in which leadership is forced to outdo itself each week to attract parishioners who are more shaped by consumerism than the Gospel itself.

Miracles Are Useless, If….

The Bible is replete with miracles [1]. Sincere Christians who worship the Triune God will objectively believe every recorded miracle in the Bible. Miracles are intended to glorify God, meet human needs and establish the supernatural basis of revelation.

How to Lose the Things You Love

The same is true in Jesus’s second woe: “Woe to you who are full now, for you shall be hungry.” It’s wonderful to prepare and eat a delicious meal. When God is firmly first in our lives, a world of guilt-free, God-glorifying culinary pleasure opens before us. We enjoy food more because we know who made it and gave it. Putting first things first, we get second things thrown in.

“‘If you can do anything, do it. Have a heart and help us!’ Jesus said, ‘If? There are no “ifs” among believers. Anything can happen.’ No sooner were the words out of his mouth than the father cried, ‘Then I believe. Help me with my doubts!’”

Well Pleased with Weakness

In 2 Corinthians 12:7–9, the apostle Paul chronicles his struggle with a thorn in the flesh that was given to him by the Lord. He asked God to take his thorn away, but to this point God had not done so. Paul’s response is surprising. He says that he boasts in his weakness because God’s grace is sufficient for his weakness and God’s power is made perfect in his weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).

I had no idea what it meant to have a Christian worldview

When I left home with 600+ hours of church tucked safely under my belt, I truly didn’t know what to do with my faith, other than continue to wear the Christian label and bide my time as a good person until I was zapped up to heaven someday. Those hundreds of hours hadn’t taught me what it means to actually see all of life differently than someone who didn’t believe in Jesus; I had no idea what it meant to have a Christian worldview.

The Point: Christian Patriotism

Years ago on BreakPoint, Chuck Colson pointed out how Americans used to openly embrace the Christian traditions and values that shaped our Republic. In that culture, it was easy for a Christian to be a patriot. Perhaps too easy. Vibrant, biblical faith could degenerate into a civil religion, where the country’s well-being and the expansion of God’s Kingdom were synonymous.

41 A Sovereign Birth by Steven Lawson | July 4, 2017

Contemporary culture prizes independence and autonomy. The spirit of the day is one of self-determination and personal fulfillment, in which all people-at least in theory-are free to go where they please, do what they want, be who they want to be, and make their own decisions. Against this backdrop, the words of Jesus in John 3 are shocking. One of the most striking features of the imagery of new birth is the utter helplessness of the person being born. By describing the event of coming to faith as new birth, Jesus makes it clear that the initiative comes entirely from God and that fallen human beings are unable to gain spiritual life on their own.

Philippians 1:3–5: Thank God for Gospel Friendships

A ground gives support or a reason for another statement. One way to think of it is that it is the ground upon which another statement is built. In this case, John Piper explains that verse 5 gives the reason (i.e. the ground) for Paul’s thankfulness to God for the Philippians.

With the Charlie Gard Case, Culture of Death Tightens Its Grip in England | Evolution News

There is a  controversy  going on in England over a child with a fatal disease. The child, Charlie Gard, was born with a mitochondrial disorder that causes brain damage and eventually death. He is currently on a respirator and his parents want to bring him to the U.S. for experimental treatment. The British health service (the NHS) has insisted that Charlie’s respirator be removed and that he be allowed to die, and they have denied his parents permission to take Charlie out of the country for treatment. British courts have sided with the NHS, and it appears that Charlie will soon be removed from the ventilator to die, against his family’s wishes.

Stop Overspiritualizing ‘Calling’

Too often we overspiritualize “calling” and make it about self-expression instead of faithfulness to God and service to others. We search for the perfect job—just what we’re “called” to do—and use “calling” as a trump card to replace perseverance, risk, and qualification.

Do You Need Help Reading Your Bible?

When you’re 71, in your eighth decade (that always sounds older) — it’s amazing when I think about it — you don’t think about your future productivity the same way you did when you were 35. You’re more keenly aware that you probably won’t get to do all you would like to do. The time that remains is unknown. As I’ve pondered my life now, and what I have done so far, and what I would like to do, nothing has seemed more important to me than to focus on the authority and the meaning and the heralding of the word of God, the Bible.

Can I Remarry If My Spouse Dies? Should I?

“Pastor John, my name is Preety from Indonesia. In July of last year, I lost my loving husband. He went for a surgery that was not supposed to be life-threatening, but he never woke up from the anesthesia. I was, and remain, in shock. We have been married for eight years, blessed with two beautiful daughters. My husband has been actively serving our Lord Jesus since the age of 18, while most of his friends are Hindu. His life was all about the gospel. We started a church and a few gatherings. He loved people dearly. Compassionate and generous. My question: Are there verses in the Bible that encourage widows to remarry? That sounds disturbing to me right now. My question is what’s left for me to hold on to in my relationship between my husband and me? I long to be always to be called his wife, but is that wrong? Each day I wait to be reunited with my husband again. Thank you, Pastor John.”
