Is There One Point of Evidence That Proves the Existence of God? (Video) | Cold Case Christianity

Is there a single piece of evidence powerful enough to prove with certainty the existence of God? How can we best assess the evidence for God?

Desiring God

The world sells a sinful, cheap joy at the buyer’s expense. God dispenses fullness of joy at the expense of his own Son, so that you may be eternally happy in him.

Greatness, Humility, Servanthood

Humility rests in the hands of God and runs with his strength.

How Christianity Led to the Rise of Modern Science

A central tenet of the new atheism is that Christianity and reason are antithetical, and that throughout history Christians have held back progress in science. Atheist historian Dr. Richard Carrier has promoted similar views in his contributions to essay collections such as The Christian Delusion and Christianity Is Not Great . He suggests that, but for the rise of Christianity, the ancient Greeks would have enjoyed a scientific revolution so that the “Dark Ages” never would have happened. However, the truth is very different. The science of the ancient Greek pagans was intended to reinforce their ethical and philosophical positions, rather than to be an objective study of nature. Admittedly, when Christians came to develop their own science in the Middle Ages, they were not being objective either. For them, science was the study of God’s creation. But the metaphysical assumptions of Christianity, unlike those of the Greeks or even Muslims, turned out to be extremely conducive to uncovering true knowledge about nature. They weren’t trying to, but it was Christians who laid the foundations for modern science.

Charlottesville, White Supremacists, Evangelicals, Racists, and Trump | The Stream

If you listen to some secular media, you’d get the impression that Donald Trump is responsible for Charlottesville and that those who voted for him are culpable as well. You’d also get the impression that unless you denounce Trump, you’re guilty of racism and are likely a white supremacist. And since many evangelical leaders support Trump, you’d be led to believe that they are part of the alt-right, all of them racists and hyper-nationalists.

Desiring God for God

Green Mount Cemetery is a 174-year-old, 60-acre plot of land in downtown Baltimore, a fortress for the dead, quarantined from the bustling city by a thick stone wall. Through a narrow stone arch, the street noise fades to silence and time slows to a stop. Acres of stone ornaments rise and fall along the surface of the rolling hills.

Mourning Charlottesville: A Domestic Sorrow, A National Woe | RZIM

But Jesus also lamented on a national scale. As he entered the city of Jerusalem, Jesus wept because it was embroiled in a calamity of its own making. “And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes” (Luke 19:41). It is haunting just how applicable Jesus’s words are to our nation today. We seem to be ignorant—whether willfully or otherwise—of the things that would bring us peace. Our desire to be right, to be justified, to think of “us” versus “them,” has hidden these things from our eyes. And so we suffer collectively, some racial groups suffering deeply, because hatred simply doesn’t have anything that makes for peace. As Spurgeon points out, “Our Lord, in weeping over Jerusalem, showed his sympathy with national troubles , his distress at the evils which awaited his countrymen. Men should not cease to be patriots when they become believers; saints should bemoan the ills which come upon the guilty people among whom they are numbered, and do so all the more because they are saints.

Pray Your Way to Wonder: How to See More Beauty in the Bible

If we do not feel the value of what we see in the Bible, we are not seeing it as it really is. We are seeing it the way Satan sees it — except that even the demons tremble (James 2:19). We are seeing it the way the natural man sees. Before the supernatural enlightenment of our hearts at conversion (Ephesians 1:18; Hebrews 10:32), we look at the story of Jesus and are blind to “the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:4). And even after that initial enlightenment (2 Corinthians 4:6), we must pray repeatedly, the rest of our lives, that God would continue to give us eyes to see.

Letter from Berlin: The Lessons of History and the Heresy of Racial Superiority - AlbertMohler.com

That is not a word we use casually. Heresy leads to a denial of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the eclipse of the living God as revealed in the Bible. A claim of white superiority is not merely wrong, and not merely deadly. It is a denial of the glory of God in creating humanity—every single human being–in his own image. It is a rejection of God’s glory in creating a humanity of different skin pigmentation. It is a misconstrual of God’s judgment and glory in creating different ethnicities.

Why You Want a Jealous God

We often think of jealousy as a bad thing, something we should avoid because our sinful hearts covet what others have. God’s jealousy, however, is appropriate and good. God’s jealousy is in regard to idolatry , which is worshiping anything other than the one true God of the Bible. God is jealous for people to acknowledge him as the only real and true God and worship him as such ( Ps. 78:58 ).

God Did Not Spare His Own Son

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

Former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi: Jesus claimed to be God, and he proved it

After studying the historical origins of the Christian faith, I came to these conclusions: that Jesus died on the cross is as certain as anything historical can be; that he rose from the dead is by far the best explanation of the events surrounding his death; and that Jesus claimed to be God is the best explanation for the immediate Christian proclamation of Jesus’ deity. Putting it all together: Jesus claimed to be God, and he proved it by rising from the dead. The case for Christianity is powerful. Despite my ardent desire to believe in Islam, I had to admit that history was in favor of Christian claims, and even more reluctantly, that it challenged Islamic teachings.

Questions on the Soul, Fine Tuning, and a Maximally Great Being

Dr. Craig, I found your lectures online at a point in college where I was considering dismissing my Christian faith. Needless to say, I was totally inspired to find this world of apologetics that I had no idea existed. In fact, I am now studying for my Masters degree in Christian apologetics at Luther Rice College and Seminary. My question is on the ontological argument and the understanding of a maximally great being – an MGB. I understand an MGB to be a being that possesses all the great-making properties in their fullest measure. Can the ontological argument be refuted if certain great-making properties can be shown to be contradictory? I am thinking of properties like justice and mercy. I find the possession of one of these properties in its fullest measure to be by definition the absence of the other. I must admit that as a Christian I find these to be reconciled in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. However, I can’t help but wonder, are there other great-making properties that might be conflicting and as such refute the ontological argument? I would love to get your thoughts. Rob in Arizona.

After 50 Years in a Wheelchair, I Still Walk With Jesus

I served on the National Council on Disability, which authored the initial draft of the ADA. Our second director, Paul Hearne, was a Jewish man who had osteogenesis imperfecta. We were all together at the White House on the day that President George H. W. Bush signed the ADA into law. Afterward, Paul proposed a toast. He said, in so many words, “This will mean a mandate of greater access into areas of employment, in public accommodations, and transportation. It means employers will now hire qualified individuals with disabilities, it means that restaurants will have ramps, it means that buses eventually will have mechanical lifts.” And then he said, “But this law is not going to change the employer’s heart, and this law is not going to change the heart of the maître d’ at the restaurant, and this law will not change the heart of the bus driver.” He raised his glass and he said, “Here’s to changed hearts.”

All’s Not Fair When Love Is War: Extending Grace in Conflict

Our most familiar hymn declares how amazing it is (and for good reason). Although the Old Testament only contains several sightings of the word, the New Testament explodes with it. God’s grace fills Christ (John 1:14), appears in his person and work (Titus 2:11–14), brands the gospel (Acts 20:24), overwhelms sin (Romans 5:20), founds God’s promises to us (Romans 4:16), transforms weakness into strength (2 Corinthians 12:9), defines God’s throne (Hebrews 4:16), and characterizes God’s Spirit (Hebrews 10:29). God is the God of all grace (1 Peter 5:10).

Tools for Inquiry: Logic and Observation

I was in a friendly mini-debate at a California college when the evolutionist interrupted me: “But creation can’t be scientific. Science deals only with things you can see and touch. Take energy, for example . . . .” Then he stopped. “Whoops! Made a mistake, didn’t I?” I hastened to agree. He, his students, and I all knew that there are forms of energy, like gravity, that you can’t see or touch or put in a bottle. Yet you know “gravity” is there (whatever it is!) because you can see the effects it has on matter. Similarly, God is a Spirit and can’t be seen—but you can see His effects on matter. Even the Bible tells us that “the invisible things of God are clearly seen in all the things that have been made” ( Rom. 1:20 ).

The Solar Eclipse: A Sign of Judgment for America?

America is definitely ripe for judgment. This nation has become a fountainhead of moral putridity, and its influence is global. Judgment is always an act of God's justice against sin, but it can also be an act of his mercy. When God judged Adam and Eve for their sin, sentencing them to death and casting them out of Eden, it was an act of mercy lest they should live in an eternal state of depravity. When God judged the world with a universal deluge in Noah's day, it was an act of mercy lest mankind in his wickedness and rampant violence destroy the human race. Perhaps God's judgment of America's great evils would be an act of mercy, saving much of the rest of the world from the spread of her transgressions, and making us an example of the need to repent and believe.

Finding a Confident Christian Faith | Reasonable Faith

What is your opinion of my reasoning here? Am I missing something? Is there any intellectually honest way, prior to, or in the absence of, the intervention of the “Holy Spirit”, to get from stoical resignation to a confident faith in the truth of the if true undoubtedly good news of the New Testament? There are after all good reasons for all of us to want such faith: it was undoubtedly this (and not resigned stoicism) that built the modern world and it has long been clear to me that, as you have pointed out elsewhere, if something very like Christianity is not true then human life is ultimately futile and absurd. Futility and absurdity hardly seem like a very good basis on which to build a life that adds up to much...

Evangelical Advisers Condemn Charlottesville Rally More Than Trump

Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in #Charlottesville, VA. That’s absurd. What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924, regardless of the possible repercussions? How about the city politicians who issued the permit for the lawful demonstration to defend the statue? And why didn’t the mayor or the governor see that a powder keg was about to explode and stop it before it got started? Instead they want to blame President Donald J. Trump for everything. Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts. Satan is behind it all.

When white supremacists come to town

You may have seen my city on the news or on your Twitter feed after several white nationalist and white supremacist groups converged on our downtown park to protest the potential removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. You likely have seen the images of confederate flags and swastikas, protesters and counter-protesters, fist fights and arrests, and videos of carnage. I have watched the evil of white supremacy playing out on my local library steps and hate on a street I’ve driven hundreds of times. My family is weeping in lament to learn that protesters have wielded clubs and even a car against other human beings, fueled by their ideology.

What Leads ‘Christians’ Away from Christ?

We, instead, submit ourselves and our happiness to “the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20). He is not simply a Savior to us, but also Lord and Treasure. We die to ourselves — our sinful desires, our impulses, our glory — to worship God and pursue his glory. We know the temporary pleasures of food and sex and money look more satisfying than they are and pale in comparison to all we have in Christ. We surrender some thin pleasures now to have full, thick pleasure forever.

Asked on Friday about the deteriorating situation in Venezuela, President Trump said “I’m not going to rule out a military option.” But he has yet to articulate the geopolitical dimension of the Venezuelan crisis. An Aug. 5 rebel raid on a weapons arsenal at Fort Paramacay, Valencia, suggests that factions of the armed forces are ready to break with strongman Nicolás Maduro. This is logical since rank-and-file military from middle-class families have been hit hard by food shortages. And some soldiers are constitutional...

The most satisfying, most fruitful, most beautiful, most God-honoring place is in marriage. Therefore, Christians do not sleep together before their wedding night.

Why Is the Trinity An Essential Christian Doctrine? | Cold Case Christianity

“That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; Neither confounding the Persons; nor dividing the Essence. For there is one Person of the Father; another of the Son; and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one; the Glory equal, the Majesty coeternal. Such as the Father is; such is the Son; and such is the Holy Ghost. The Father uncreated; the Son uncreated; and the Holy Ghost uncreated. The Father unlimited; the Son unlimited; and the Holy Ghost unlimited. The Father eternal; the Son eternal; and the Holy Ghost eternal. And yet they are not three eternals; but one eternal. As also there are not three uncreated; nor three infinites, but one uncreated; and one infinite. So likewise the Father is Almighty; the Son Almighty; and the Holy Ghost Almighty. And yet they are not three Almighties; but one Almighty. So the Father is God; the Son is God; and the Holy Ghost is God. And yet they are not three Gods; but one God. So likewise the Father is Lord; the Son Lord; and the Holy Ghost Lord. And yet not three Lords; but one Lord.
