J. Warner Wallace is a cold-case homicide detective, a missions leader, a church planter, and author of Cold-Case Christianity. As a result of his work with cold cases, Wallace has been featured on numerous television programs including Dateline, FOX News, and Court TV. Wallace’s visual presentations in the courtroom have revolutionized how capital offense trials are presented in Los Angeles County and across the country. A vocal atheist for many years, Wallace is now an apologist for Christianity with a master’s degree in theology and the founder of the Please Convince Me blog and podcast. He and his wife, Susie, have four children and live in southern California.

The Missing Link: The Case for Pre-Apologetics

Throughout my childhood my mom repeatedly admonished, “people don’t care what you know until they know that you care.” Well, apologists are pretty aware that, in general, the church doesn’t care as much about apologetics as it should.

Justin Bieber and The Meaning of Marriage - The Gospel Coalition | Australia

When I woke up this morning to see social media splashed with photos of Justin Bieber holding a copy of the Keller marriage book, I made an uncharacteristic move to take a second look at Justin Bieber. My daughter might sing along to Bieber, but he’s not exactly listed very high on my spotify playlist!

Commonsense Christian Apologetics (Part 2)

The origin of the concept of falling short of some independent standard of behavior and thinking…requiring us to ask forgiveness from other people we have harmed or offended…in a materialistic Darwinian worldview has no survival-of-the-fittest value…and ascribes to the capacity of material particles and energy a broadly theoretical, God-like potential for creating premeditated end-points such as forgiveness… in the realm of moral reasoning.

Late July 2018 Presuppositional Apologetics’ Links

Thanks for this list Jim! I followed the link “Slapping down Christians and Creationists”, and discovered “Wretched Radio”! I don’t usually listen to podcasts (data cap), but that was fascinating. It was the first time I heard of Ken Ham. I said a prayer for him, ’cause it sometimes seems that internet trolls know no mercy. There were other things I learned from the show as well. I knew that I am a creationist, but I now know that I am also a “young earth creationist”. I have been for years, I just didn’t know they had a name for it. I’ve just been believing that The Bible says what It means (with perhaps other messages which are revealed to us when we’re ready). Is “Wretched Radio” just an internet podcast, or is it also on the airways somewhere?

6 Questions College Students Must Be Ready to Answer

The research is clear: One of the best ways to prepare students to sustain their faith throughout college is to force them to answer hard questions. While some apologetics are timeless, it’s vital for churches and parents to monitor the most prominent current questions and challenges Christians face on college campuses today.

13 Renewing Your Mind | Apostolic Greeting | Aug 12, 2018

Why I Try Not to Obsess Over the Genesis Debate | Cold Case Christianity

All these sincere Christians are trying to make sense of the world they see in “natural revelation” while retaining the utmost respect and high regard for the “special revelation” of the Bible. It is an honest and heartfelt endeavor, and I certainly understand their motivation. Any one of these models may be correct; each has virtues and each has liabilities (as does every case I’ve ever worked). Most likely, each model contains some truth and some error. We’ve probably misinterpreted something here or there and only God will be able to correct us when we get home (for many of us this will be one of the first questions we ask Him).

Someone you know is a Mormon—a family member, a coworker, a friend, or a neighbor—and you long to present the truth about Jesus and what God’s Word teaches. But where do you start? How can you convey what’s on your heart in a way that will be well received? Well, there’s a new book by Eric Johnson and Sean McDowell full of practical wisdom to equip you to reach Mormons. It contains a variety of essays from respected scholars, apologists, and pastors—including Sandra Tanner, Robert Bowman, David Geisler, Bill McKeever, Mark Mittelberg, J. Warner Wallace, Lynn Wilder, and others—lays out a variety of creative methods for sharing the gospel effectively. Frank interview Eric Johnson about this new book. During this interview, you will learn some great tips on how to share the truth with Mormons.

Christians are often accused of taking a blind leap into the dark

Christians are often accused of taking a “blind leap into the dark.” However, my father Josh set out to disprove the Christian faith historically, but instead found the evidence powerful and convincing. So, when he became a Christian, it wasn’t a blind leap into the dark, but a knowledgeable step into the light. He placed the evidence onto the scales, and in his estimation, it tipped in favor of Jesus Christ as the Son of God, resurrected from the dead. You may be convinced by the evidence. On the other hand, you may find it wanting. But the claim that “faith is blind” simply ignores the biblical and historical evidence. In fact, only someone who hasn’t truly weighed the evidence could make such a claim. If you haven’t considered the evidence yet, maybe now is the time.

Two Reasons the Trinity Matters

How much does the Trinity matter to you? If you found out tomorrow that God is actually only one person instead of three, would your relationship with God feel any different? Would it require a drastic overhaul in the way you think or witness or pray? How much does the Trinity matter to you personally? How much does the Trinity matter to your church? If you found out tomorrow that your beloved youth pastor had become a staunch modalist—he now insists the Father, Son, and Spirit are actually one person in three manifestations instead of three distinct persons—would your church excommunicate him? Or would that seem like splitting hairs? Is the Athanasian Creed really right to say, “Whoever wishes to be saved must think thus of the Trinity. And whoever rejects this faith will perish everlastingly”? Or is that the overstatement of the millennium? Judging by the church’s historic creeds, Christians used to think the Trinity is really important. Judging by the honest answers likely given to the questions above, many modern Christians have lost the sense of why it’s so important, even if they’ve retained it in their doctrinal statements.

Christian Case Making Can Change the Way You Think About Your Purpose | Cold Case Christianity

Teasi Cannon: The first reason is that they’re just so incredibly wise and quotable! I actually had to dial the quotes way back in editing. Beyond that, I’m always trying to connect people with quality resources to help them grow in their knowledge of God. Now that I’ve experienced how apologetics has helped to not only bolster my faith, but deepen my worship, I wanted to invite readers to join me…subtly. Because my first book was a lay level book written primarily to Christian women about heart issues, I didn’t want to confuse my existing audience by completely switching gears in style and content. But I did want to demonstrate how meaningful and relevant loving God with our minds can be. I purposely tried to broaden my audience in this book and sprinkled in little bits of Christian case-making here and there in hopes that it would pique interest and allay any anti-intellectual bias.

5 Lessons that Christians Should Learn from Skeptics

The conflict between Atheist Skeptics and Christians is both tense and intense.

23 Far Worse Than Being Caught: Fighting Sin with Fear

If you are falling in love with the world, and about to exchange the glory of God for the dream of gold, ponder which is worse: waking up with gravel in your mouth, or being handed over to ever deepening perversion? So, we read: “God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves. . . . God gave them up to dishonorable passions. . . . God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done” (Romans 1:24–28).

Save the Egg: An Interview with the Editor of 'The Poached Egg'

With this polarization, and with the more overt hostility toward Christian belief on the rise, Christians have blown the dust off a long-neglected field of study, and it is increasingly on the lips of the most ground-level believer: Christian Apologetics.

Apologetics as a Spiritual Discipline

“Only those who truly doubt can truly believe” is a quote I sometimes hear attributed to Augustine.  Whether he said it or not, it contains a grain of truth.  The simple fact is we all doubt.  Even someone like me who devours apologetic books like hippies devour kale chips goes through periods of doubt.

Is Philosophy Dangerous For Christians?

The implication being that philosophy is bad or dangerous and that we shouldn’t go chasing after “speculations.”  What I want to explore in this article is that this sort of mind set is not only in opposition to the Bible, but that it is crippling the church at large as far as our effectiveness not only to reach out to those who aren’t Christians (as it makes Christianity seem deeply anti-intellectual and irrational when the Bible paints the opposite picture) but also to the overall growth of us as Christians as well.  Before we can examine whether the charges stick as far as philosophy being dangerous we need to first briefly examine what we mean by the word philosophy .

3 Christian Urban Legends That Need to Die

In the late '60s, American culture was all abuzz with the rumor, "Paul is Dead." The supposed fatality of the beloved member of The Beatles became a cultural phenomenon, leading many young people to analyze the band's artwork and lyrics for clues. The "fake news" of the day was that Paul McCartney had died, and been replaced by a look-a-like. The gossip finally died down when Paul was interviewed by Life magazine in 1969, and he later poked fun at the rumor himself by titling his 1993 album, "Paul is Live."  Thus the tall tale faded into urban legend.

I watched my first graduating class of seniors walk away from Christianity

In my experience as a youth pastor, I learned the importance of providing intellectual tools and training. I watched my first graduating class of seniors walk away from Christianity in large percentages before I embraced a Case Making approach with my students. After observing the struggle these seniors experienced, I changed the way I prepared my students…When it comes to equipping Christian students, the evidences for God’s existence, the reliability of the Bible, and the truth of the Christian worldview are the tools we must provide.

33
How Not to Win Arguments and Lose People

I know there are plenty of books on apologetics and worldview that help Christians defend their faith. But we cant learn these answers just to win arguments. That is the way everybody else in the world talks about religion. Christianity has never made converts primarily by winning arguments but rather by capturing hearts.

34 Christ Levels the Dating Field

Don’t settle for a person who isn’t in ardent pursuit of the Father’s heart, and don’t fail to be in daily pursuit of him yourself! Don’t settle for a person who isn’t striving for God’s glory, and make strides in the race towards him yourself! Seek those who will call out sin in your life, help you walk through it, and spur you ever onward towards Christ. These seem rare in the world (the West particularly), but I think that’s often because we mark them off the list for superficial reasons too soon.

God Must Exist: Truth Telling and Lying

36 Who Wrote the Book of Jude?

Mark 6:3 highlights a few facts. First, James and Jude were Jesus’ brothers. Second, they were both known by the church. If this is the case, then it stands to reason that Jude would identify himself as James’ brother since James was an influential leader in the Jerusalem church. Therefore, Jude the brother of James and Jesus is the most viable candidate to have authored this little book. Jude humbly designated himself only as the brother of James and a servant of Christ rather than elevate himself as Jesus’ brother.

38 Hope for the Unhappily Single

The good news for the not-yet-married is that no one in Christ is single, and no one is married in heaven. We need to anchor our feelings of loneliness and longing in the gospel. If we are in Christ, there’s really nothing single about us. We all know there are intimacies that are — and should be — unique to marriage, but those that matter most really can be experienced in the bride of Christ, his church. A husband or wife may help and provide for you in ways others can’t, but a true, Spirit-filled, persistent, and present brother or sister in faith can care for you in remarkable ways. In Jesus, none are single, no not one.

Modern Software and Biological Organisms: Object-Oriented Design | Evolution News

At the top level, we have the Eye class which, for the sake of simplicity, is composed minimally of a collection of one or more photoreceptors and an optic nerve that transmits images to the visual cortex. (Note the filled diamond shape that represents composition in relationships between whole and part.) The Eye class itself is “abstract” in the sense that it cannot be instantiated itself, but provides the properties needed by all its subclasses that at some level will be instantiated as an eye of some given type. On the second level, we have the Simple and Compound eye types which have an inheritance relationship with the Eye class. This means these two eye types inherit all the properties of the abstract Eye base class, along with its necessary components. These classes are abstract as well. On the third level, we have class objects that inherit all the properties of either the Simple or Compound classes. At this level we still have abstract classes which will have all the properties or components necessary to exist in any given higher animal but require further differentiation at the species level to be properly instantiated.

Why We (Sometimes) Need Harsh Polemical Theology

“I grew up and was nurtured in the Reformed tradition, where theological sparring is a spectator sport,” Brian Mattson says . “I participated in the games, honed my wicked tongue (which was all-too-often genuinely wicked), and vanquished many foes.” Mattson no longer engages in the “heated theological debates of the day” because, he says, “I burned out.” But he recently stepped back into the fray for another fight: “Why, then, did I just publish a  polemical essay  in  The Calvinist International  responding to David Bentley Hart’s doctrine of the (non)resurrection of the flesh?” It was just over week ago. I had read Hart’s fascinating and dizzying article (regardless of his content, he is supremely talented), and thought that maybe somebody should write a response. It was one of those fleeting thoughts that quickly dissolves into “somebody else will do it.” I’m busy. I’m traveling this week. On Tuesday I attended a funeral. As I sat there with tears in my eyes looking at the handsome wooden box wherein the remains of my friend lay—after a rapid and sudden decline—a Christian brother so universally beloved the church building was bursting its capacity, the fire was rekindled.

Sometimes God Says ‘Go.’ And Sometimes ‘Stay.’

When our friends’ long hours of work finally rewarded them with a pile of paid-off college loans, they perched on the edge of the American Dream. A nicer neighborhood beckoned, one with better schools. But, as Dietrich Bonhoeffer famously  observed , “When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.” To everyone’s amazement, our friends sold their house and headed to Africa. They count the cost in frequent flyer miles. As it turns out, “convenient” isn’t Jesus’s specialty: If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. (Luke 17:26–27) Following him may cost our relationships, our finances, our proximity to family, or our health. And, whatever else we sacrifice, part of the cost of discipleship is geographic. Should I Stay or Go? The story of God-followers has always been a story of tents and sandals. We steep in it—the record of sojourners striking out, a homesick people, a homeless King.
