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.

Do Denominational Disagreements Falsify Christianity?

Truth, by its very nature, is often elusive and difficult to ascertain. The more hidden or complex the truth claim, the more difficult it is to determine, given our limited capacity as humans. To make matters worse, our innate, fallen qualities of pride and rebellion cause us to disagree and separate from one another along the way. Christians are not alone in their struggle to understand the truth. We aren’t the only people who struggle with disagreement and separation:

Would A World Without Satan Lack Evil?

The fact of the matter is that evil would not cease to exist if Satan were to be non-existent. Hence, numbers need not matter. When evil exists, the terms ‘lesser’ and ‘greater’ do not gain greater significance, for the world we live in would be evil even if only 1% of the total population (1 out of 10 people) are adversely affected by evil. Moreover, if only 1% of the total population is affected by evil, then there is a certain possibility for evil to increase.

What's So Special About Christianity?

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.

Defeating Relativism and Self refuting Statements

http://amzn.to/1wgDkKB Countless skeptics, atheists, and secularists are utilizing relativism to challenge Christians in the public square. The new apologetics book "Defeating Relativism, Subjectivism, and Self-Refuting Statements" shows that relativism is not just false, but intellectually unmanageable. The author demonstrates that absolute truth and objective moral values do exist and the contrary is not possible. While making difficult concepts easy-to-understand and user-friendly, Robinson critiques relativism by exposing seven of its most serious weaknesses before revealing the corrupt influence of relativism on our modern culture. "Defeating Relativism, Subjectivism, and Self-Refuting Statements: Defending Christianity against The Inconsistency of Unbelief, Atheism, and Relativism" provides powerful tools to refute relativism and secularism. The reader learns that there are numerous varieties of relativism: soft, weak, rigid, anthropological, metrological, philosophical, descriptive, and normative relativism. This diversity requires today’s apologists to approach the subject with patience and wisdom.

Atheist gets her PhD in astronomy and astrophysics and finds evidence for God

If anyone is interested in how this works, I’ll describe it, but for now I’ll spare you the gruesome details. Suffice it to say that an amazing convergence of physical properties is necessary in order to study deuterium abundances in the early universe, and yet this convergence is exactly what we get. I remember being astounded by this, blown away, completely and utterly awed. It seemed incredible to me that there was a way to find the answer to this question we had about the universe. In fact, it seems that every question we have about the universe is answerable. There’s no reason it has to be this way, and it made me think of Einstein’s observation that the most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it’s comprehensible. I started to sense an underlying order to the universe. Without knowing it, I was awakening to what Psalm 19 tells us so clearly, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”

23 A Practical Guide to Culture: Helping the Next Generation Navigate Today's World - Kindle edition by John Stonestreet, Brett Kunkle. Religion & Spirituality Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

“To be human and to be alive is to deal with a world of ideas, values, issues, artifacts, institutions, and structures. We have no choice but to jump in, make decisions, interact with others, and build lives together as families and citizens while navigating around the landmines that seem to be everywhere.” For many Christian parents, the world in which our children are growing up is a battleground that we’d rather they remain conscientious objectors to. We fear the cultural changes and the ever-increasing animus toward people of Christian faith. It is a natural reaction for us to want to shelter and protect our young, but as we all know, and try to ignore, the day is coming when they will no longer be under our protective wing. What will they do then? How will they fare in a world of competing ideas and inflammatory rhetoric aimed at the very foundations of their worldview? The answer, championed in the quote above, is to prepare them now so that they might endure in that day of battle. This is exactly what A Practical Guide to Culture was written to do. Authors John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle have spent the majority of their years in ministry seeking to equip parents and young people to engage with the current culture.

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).

29 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).

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 .

Your Small Group Should Be Making Disciples

What is the goal of your small-group ministry? Is it fellowship? Friendship? Bible literacy? Missional engagement? Neighborhood service? How many different answers would you get if you asked your group leaders? After more than a decade of leading and overseeing small groups in various contexts, I’m more convinced than ever that discipleship must be the single, unifying goal of our community ministries. Many of the above options are means to this end, but I think the clarification is worthwhile. If Jesus commissioned us to make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19), our highest goal for community groups can’t merely be fellowship or knowledge or visitor retention. Our goal must be mature disciples—men and women full of the life of Christ. How Do We Make Disciples? When discussing discipleship, many things may come to mind—a class, a program, a Bible study, family worship, one-on-one mentoring, a set of doctrines, or an early developmental stage. I’ve been in a group that emphasized accountability and pressed its members weekly (in gender specific groups) to confess sins and recite Scriptures.

Who Created God? - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

Richard Dawkins, the famous English evolutionary biologist and renowned atheist, revived an objection related to God’s existence in his book, The God Delusion. In the fourth chapter (Why There Almost Certainly Is No God), Dawkins wrote, “…the designer hypothesis immediately raises the larger problem of who designed the designer. The whole problem we started out with was the problem of explaining statistical improbability. It is obviously no solution to postulate something even more improbable.” In essence, Dawkins offered a restatement of the classic question, “Who created God?” On its face, this seems to be a reasonable question. Christians, after all, claim God created everything we see in our universe (all space, time and matter); He is the cause of our caused cosmos. Skeptics fail to see this as a satisfactory explanation, however, because it seems to beg the question, “If God, created the universe, who (or what) created God?”

The Three Most Important "Trajectory Decisions" Every University Student Must Make | Cold Case Christianity

Every Spring, millions of people graduate from colleges and universities across America, and most of them are under the age of 25 . This year, according to the National Center for Education Statistics , institutions of higher education are expected to award 1.0 million associate’s degrees, 1.9 million bachelor’s degrees, 790,000 master’s degrees, and 183,000 doctor’s degrees. After the celebrations subside, many of these graduates will face important decisions that will impact the direction of their lives. These “trajectory decisions,” as I like to call them, will guide them toward success or toward struggle, and they involve far more than simply the choice of job or occupation.
