Did Jesus Ever Do Apologetics?

Awhile back, I got into a conversation with someone on Twitter about apologetics. This person, who had a seminary education and was involved in ministry, was pushing back on a tweet I wrote about the importance of apologetics. One of the things that she said was that we should emulate Jesus, and what he did was tell stories. Telling stories was what we should be doing, not apologetics.

What are your thoughts on the doctrine of Christ's blood "running through our veins?" Can you shed any light on Jesus' attitude towards the woman in Matthew 15:21-28? What are your thoughts on the Church of Christ's view of water baptism?

Is the Bible literally true?

Is the Bible literally true? by Rob Phillips Christians are sometimes asked if we believe the Bible is literally true. After all, whether eating Christ’s flesh and drinking His blood is a plunge into cannibalism, or a figurative expression of full devotion, depends on how we understand the language of Scripture. In one sense, we might say the Bible is divinely inspired literature through which God speaks to human beings in our own language. This naturally includes a range of literary devices, from narrative to hyperbole. So, what does it mean to take the Bible “literally”? It means applying a natural reading as the author or speaker intended, with a goal of grasping the writer’s message. This requires context and may include approximations, analogies, metaphors, quotations, parables, apocalyptic language, etc. In contrast, taking the Bible “literalistically” means adhering to a rigid understanding of the primary meaning of words, without allowing for figurative language or a possible range of meanings. An example may help clarify this. In John 10:9, Jesus states, “I am the door.

Reasons To Believe : Is the Whale Pelvis a Vestige of Evolution?

Evolutionary biologists will argue that this insight doesn’t diminish the case for biological evolution one bit. They will maintain that the whale pelvis is a homologous structure, even if it isn’t vestigial, and therefore supports common ancestry. For creationists and ID adherents, on the other hand, this insight is significant. The whale pelvis’ functional role makes it reasonable to argue that this structure is the expression of an archetypical design—the work of a Creator. If the whale pelvis were truly vestigial, this argument would be harder to make.

The Challenges Facing Young Christians

The Church will never begin to address the growing problem of  young people leaving the faith  if it doesn’t first recognize the challenges facing Christian students. The young Christians at Summit have already begun to feel the impact of the cultural forces aligning against the Christian worldview. That’s why they are so encouraged to discover and experience the robust intellectual tradition of Christian thought as represented by the professors, speakers and trainers over two intensive weeks of worldview training. These young people are forever changed by their experience at Summit. They are equipped to meet the challenges they already face, even as they prepare for an even greater challenge in the university setting. All of us, as youth pastors and ministers, can learn something from programs like Summit. It’s time to address the challenges facing students before they find themselves struggling to resist the cultural tide on their own.

Kindle Deals in Christian Apologetics: Greg's Top Ten Picks of the Week (plus 1 FREE)!

There are four ways to die, and only one of them requires an intruder. Suicides, accidental, and natural deaths can occur without any evidence from outside the room. But murders typically involve suspects external to the crime scene. If there’s evidence of an outside intruder, homicide detectives have to prepare for a chase. Intruders turn death scenes into crime scenes. Join J. Warner Wallace, former atheist, seasoned cold-case detective, and popular national speaker as he tackles his most important case ... with you on the jury! With the expertise of a cold-case detective, J. Warner examines eight critical pieces of evidence in the “crime scene” of the universe to determine if they point to a Divine Intruder. If you have ever wondered if something (or someone) outside the natural realm created the universe and everything in it, this is the case for you.   ORDER YOUR COPY NOW >>>

Four Ways the Earth Is Fine-Tuned for Life | Cold Case Christianity

Like the death scene I investigated, the layers of foundational, regional, and locational evidence in the universe show signs of “tampering.” The forces governing atomic structure, the matter of the universe and the creation of chemicals are conveniently aligned to allow life’s existence. Even tiny changes in these forces have disastrous consequences for life. Similarly narrow ranges exist related to our galaxy and planet. While the appearance of fine-tuning in any one of these cosmic parameters might not be all that compelling, the cumulative nature of these conditions obligates us to seek an explanation.

Evidential Apologetics: What is it?

The term "apologetics" comes from the Greek, apologia , which means "defense." Apologetics is the systematic study of how one can best defend one's beliefs. Christian apologetics, specifically, focuses on presenting the core tenets of the Christian faith so as to make a case for their truthfulness and answer objections raised by unbelievers. Simply put, Christian apologetics is offering a defense for what Christians believe.

What Can Christians Learn from the Apostolic Fathers? Interview with Author Ken Berding

KEN BERDING: I’m so glad you’re reading the book! The Apostolic Fathers are a name given in the modern era to the earliest Christian writers who wrote just after the age of the apostles. Their writings span A.D. 95-160. They include 1 Clement, the letters of Ignatius, Polycarp’s Letter to the Philippians, The Didache, fragments from Papias, the Shepherd of Hermas, the Letter of Barnabas (not Paul’s co-worker), 2 Clement, Diognetus, and The Martyrdom of Polycarp. Why are they important? The reason they’re important is because of how early they were written. Some of these authors actually knew apostles or companions of apostles. If we could talk to them, they could answer many questions (and actually did answer a few of them in their writings!) that get asked about the apostolic age. They also help us observe early developments in Christian doctrine and church polity. Besides, they’re really interesting…for the most part…

Kicked Out of Church: How God Brought Me Home

I had been through difficult times before: the tragic loss of my father in childhood, the torturous cancer battle that took my mother’s life in my twenties, and the horrific fight of my firstborn against malignant brain cancer a decade earlier. But nothing hit me as hard as my son’s genetic disorder. It was a rare aging condition called Cockayne Syndrome. There is no treatment for CS. You watch your child slowly deteriorate and suffer horribly. I stopped praying the day we received the diagnosis, and I didn’t pray again for five years.

The ‘Prophets’ and ‘Apostles’ Leading the Quiet Revolution in American Religion

Many of these apostles run megachurches, including Bethel Church in Redding California, HRock Church in Pasadena, and the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City. But their real power lies in their innovative approach to selling faith. They’ve combined multi-level marketing, Pentecostal signs and wonders, and post-millennial optimism to connect directly with millions of spiritual customers. That allows them to reap millions in donations, conference fees, and book and DVD sales. And because these INC apostles claim to get direction straight from God, they operate with almost no oversight.

Who Did Jesus Claim to Be? (Podcast)

In this blast from the past, J. Warner examines the Deity of Jesus. Even non-believers will often admit that Jesus was among the finest moral teachers the world has ever known. But part of Jesus’ teaching involved proclamations related to his identity as God Himself. While skeptics often maintain that Jesus never claimed to be God, the Biblical record indicates just the opposite. What did Jesus teach about his own identity? What does the evidence of Scripture tell us about this teaching? Why do orthodox Christians believe that Jesus was God incarnate?

Reasons To Believe : My Three Favorite Books on the Trinity

Yet while the Trinity is the governing center of all Christian theological thinking, many believers today have difficulty thinking and speaking about the Triune God in a clear, careful, and biblically oriented manner. If you fit in that category then I recommend three excellent books that will help you gain a greater biblical and theological understanding of God’s Triune nature. You’ll also come to understand why the truth of the Trinity is so important. (By the way, I hope it doesn’t escape you that in one article I recommend three distinct books about God’s eternal oneness and threeness .)

How Can You Make a Career in Apologetics?

Part of the vision of our Biola M.A. Christian Apologetics program is to train apologists to be a resource for the local church. In fact, our dream is that churches would consider the need for a “Pastor or Apologetics” as important as a men’s ministry leader or a youth pastor. Until this dream becomes a reality, here’s a few ways to make a career in apologetics (If you think I have missed any, please let me know):

The God of Our Relationships - Westminster Theological Seminary

Third, God is present in his wisdom and truth in the midst of human meanings, purposes, and attempts at control. He confronts us not only with his goodness and his name, but also with his holiness and his requirement of truthfulness and moral responsibility on our part. Personal relationships are not something that we are to be involved in as we please, independent of all moral standards. If people tried consistently to abandon moral standards with respect to relationships, no one could be trusted, and social life would be full of failures as well as treacheries. God makes the social world generally livable. But in a fallen world, there may indeed sometimes be anarchic situations and evil groups where human destruction rises to horrible heights. Short of completely reforming and purifying people as God will do in the consummation, he rules over a world that still contains treacheries in human relationships.

If you go this path, don’t expect to enjoy the same freedoms as your colleagues on the left.

42 Is There Objective Truth? | Reasonable Faith

Dr. Craig, life has become absurd to me. Having had conversation with several individuals in my school years have taught me that most do not think that there is such a thing as truth, rather the word is only a matter of opinion and therefore has not absolute meaning. At the end of my conversation it has been revealed to me that anything that is not a scientific fact is false, and that this thing truth is only a coping mechanism that human being have created to make it appear that life has meaning but in reality it has none. How do you as a Philosopher/Theologian deal with this? I am anxious for your response!

Unbelievable? Two Reasons Why Some People Reject the Reliability of the Gospels | Cold Case Christianity

Miraculous Details First, the accounts include supernatural events. The ancient teacher, Jesus, performed miracles and was resurrected after his crucifixion and death. For many in the post-enlightenment era, the presence of miracles automatically disqualifies any ancient record as history and relegates it to the ranks of mythology . But stop and think about this for a minute. The writers of the Gospels were testifying about something they knew to be unusual: They were testifying about a man who was more than a teacher, He was a miracle worker who claimed to be God and rose from the dead to prove His claim. The witnesses knew their claims would be controversial and resisted. As we examine their testimony to determine whether or not we can trust them, we cannot begin by rejecting the very nature of their claim. Yes, we can be skeptical, but we cannot begin by rejecting supernaturalism before the witnesses even make a case for the supernatural.  We cannot start our investigation with our conclusions predetermined. We would never want to do that in a criminal investigation, and we should be similarly hesitant to begin with our conclusions when examining the gospels.

Religious Liberty Is for Everyone

Religious freedom has always been a priority for American evangelicals who rejected state control of the church. And Christians have likewise advocated for fellow believers around the world who do not have the right to worship and practice their faith freely. But in recent years Christians have become concerned as our own American government, under pressure from lobby groups and even voters, seems intent on enforcing a kind of secularism and restricting the free exercise of religion, especially when taxpayers funds are involved.
