Why Christian Theology Needs (Former) Atheists

Walter Hooper, C. S. Lewis’s personal secretary, once commented to the great Christian writer about a clever inscription engraved on an atheist’s tombstone: “Here lies an atheist. All dressed up with no place to go.” Not bemused, Lewis quipped: “That atheist probably wishes now that were true.”

Apologetics 101: Someone Knocks at your Door

I have taken a couple Christian apologetics classes. Apologetics is a branch of theology devoted to the defense of the Christian Faith. Defending not just our doctrines (ex: why is salvation by grace alone?) but also defense in comparison to other religions (why do we believe that Jesus is the Son of God and not another prophet like the Islamic faith?).  It is a fascinating study; there is a lot of history, scripture and study of other religions involved. In my head, I had little arguments that I was ready to use…until someone knocked on my door.

Discipleship Isn't What You Think It Is

I'm fascinated by the parts of the Bible that leave us to wonder what happened when the story is over. For example, how did the formerly demon-possessed man live after he moved out of the cemetery, gave up his chains, and returned to family and community? How did Lazarus live once he'd removed the wrappings? What was Zaccheus's life like after he started giving the money back to those he'd robbed? And how did that prodigal son and his snarky older brother work out their future in their father's house?

Why David Platt and Ligon Duncan Repented for Racial Blindness

“Forgive me, brothers.” Reformed Theological Seminary chancellor Ligon Duncan fought back tears as he repented of racial blindness to 12,000 Together for the Gospel (T4G) conference-goers in Louisville, Kentucky, this past April. “It has taken more than three decades for God to bring this blindness off of my heart,” he said. The stillness of the crowd during Duncan’s heartfelt admission resembled that of the evening before, when David Platt  preached from Amos 5:18–27 in a sermon subtitled “Racism and Our Need for Repentance.” “I need to say from the start that I have failed to act as I ought on the issue of racism,” Platt said, “and God has opened my eyes to blind spots in my life and in my leadership, or lack thereof, in the church on this issue. God has revealed sinfulness to me that I had not seen in me. He has shown me things I will say tonight that I might have been offended by before.” Behind Platt and Duncan’s repentance are stories of friendship that reformed how they saw the most polarizing topic in America. Ligon Duncan’s Journey In the Jackson, Mississippi, summer of 1990, Duncan taught his first course at RTS, “Pastoral and Social Ethics.

Mid-August 2018 Presuppositional Apologetics’ Links

Thanks for the links, Jim. As I was looking at ‘Atheism: Three Problems that Result in a Strikeout ‘ and ‘Powerful Proof for God 2 Minutes’, it occurred to me that the most Powerful proof we have of God’s Existence is the believer’s experience of God’s Presence. True, not all believers experience God’s Power (Manifestations of The Holy Spirit), but what’s common among us all seems to be The Holy Spirit’s Revealing of God’s Presence within us. A skeptic can’t experience this while resisting The Call of The Spirit, because one must accept The Presence of God willingly. I’m sure there are skeptics which try to explain this away, but they can’t really know what they’re talking about unless they experience it. (Hope I’m putting this right; seems so hard to present it in words).

Un-Placed: 5 Ways to Love Someone Grieving a Failed Adoption

In the past two years, we’ve walked with two dear couple friends through the grief of a failed adoption placement. Both couples were selected by a birth mother through a private adoption agency. They built a relationship with her, had baby showers, prepared a nursery, waited months, and excitedly packed their car for the hospital while the birth mother labored—only to unload the car and re-enter a childless home when she made the decision to parent rather than place the baby. Our community struggled to care for them in the aftermath of this unique sadness because of its complexity. Although failed placements are actually quite common, the experience was foreign to us, and we were at a loss for how to love and care for them well. Through honest conversations and grieving together, the following five principles emerged as a helpful framework to care for families enduring the grief of a failed placement. 1. Validate Their Loss Although no death has occurred, the sting of loss is keenly felt following the news of a failed adoption placement. These expectant parents are grieving more than disappointment or the loss of a dream or time; they are longing to hold a particular child they loved and prepared for specifically .

13 Important Questions for the Christian Science Worldview | Cold Case Christianity

So, Could This Be True? Every worldview has to be both internally and externally consistent. The challenge for Christian Science appears to exist at both levels. There are a number of philosophical questions (and Biblical Questions for that matter) exposing the internal contradictions of the worldview. In addition, it would be difficult (if not impossible) to measure whether or not Christian Science is externally consistent if we can’t trust our observations in the material world in the first place. For these reasons, the Church of Christ, Scientist (Christian Science) worldview does not pass the test of internal and external examination.

The FAQs: What Christians Should Know About Social Justice

What is social justice? Should Christians advocate for social justice? Is it even a term that Christians should use? Over the past few years the rise of the term “social justice” among Christians has coincided with a growing level of misunderstanding, misuse, and misapplication of the term. Here are a few things Christians should know about social justice. Where did the term “social justice” originate? Jesuit priest  Luigi Taparelli D’Azeglio  coined the term in the 1840s and based the concept on the teachings of Thomas Aquinas. Taparelli used the term to refer to the ordinary and traditional conception of justice applied to the constitutional arrangements of society. At the time, Taparelli’s concept was considered a significant contribution to conservative political philosophy. Taparelli has a good claim, the religious historian Thomas Patrick Burke says , to being the “father of Catholic social teaching.” As Burke notes, one of Taparelli’s students wrote the first draft of Pope Leo XIII’s 1891 encyclical  Rerum Novarum ( On the Condition of the Working Classes ), the first papal statement on “the social question.

27 God Sends You Back to School

One of the implications of being a student is that you are planning something. Your plan may not be clear, but you did not come to study so that you could waste the rest of your life. You have come because you believe that these studies will make you more fruitful. And as your plan for a life of fruitfulness takes shape, which would you rather say, “If I’m lucky, I will live and do this or that. By chance, I may live and do this or that. As fate may have it, I will live and do this or that”? Or would you rather say, “If the Lord wills, I will live and do this or that” (James 4:15)?

29 Q&A: Answering Questions Of An Agnostic Brother

Craig argues that our moral experience is on par with our physical experience. Our five senses tell us that the physical world is real, that you are really sitting there reading this blog post. In a similar way, your moral senses tell you what is good and what is evil. Now, we can’t get outside of our moral senses to test whether they’re giving us reliable information, but neither can we get outside of our physical senses to test whether they’re giving us reliable information. Should we, therefore, conclude that we can’t know what the physical world is like? Of course not. But then, why should we deny the existence of objective morality because we can’t get outside of our moral perceptions to test their reliability? I’ve noticed that most skeptics, in trying to knock down the epistemological justification of the second premise of the moral argument, they tend to make arguments that would undermine our 5 senses if the same logic was applied to them. For example, some will point out that different people have disagreements on whether a certain action is morally right or wrong (e.

“Once Russian society adopted Stalin’s ideology, it destroyed more lives than Nazi fascism. Mao Tse-tung’s Marxist ideology in China also grew out of the post-Christian German academics. The unthinkable genocides and injustices of the last century, the industrial-scale killings and starvations – all have been the work of ideologies . Ideas, embraced by millions on people, lead dramatically to death or to life.”

Just the Facts: The Minimalist Approach for Talking about the Resurrection

The other year, I sent three questions to many of my friends about Jesus. I asked who they thought Jesus is (a wise dead man, a liar, the risen savior, etc.), what happened to Jesus (he died like everyone else or he was resurrected), and if there was evidence to examine, would you reconsider your belief. While the answers varied, of course, a handful of people believed he was not God, died a permanent death, and yet his followers either pulled off the greatest conspiracy ever or we’ve misinterpreted what resurrection really means. Those same people then, with the last question, said that if evidence was presented contrary, they would have to reconsider the claims of Christ.

Do The Gospels Disagree About Jesus?

A standard method of attack against the New Testament inerrancy is to pit one or two books against each other.  While this approach has been used with the epistles, it is most often used with the Gospels.  A clear example of this is found in the work of Bart Ehrman.  Both on his blog[1] and in interviews[2], Ehrman insists that Gospels such as Mark and Luke present different, even contradictory depictions of Jesus.  During an interview on the famous show, The Colbert Report, he stated,

James Rochford: Goodness Without God - 2018 Xenos Summer Institute

James Rochford is a lead pastor at Xenos Christian Fellowship. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School with his Masters in Theological Studies and is the author of Too Good To Be True?, Endless Hope or Hopeless End, and Evidence Unseen. James and his wife, Duyen, also lead a Bible study for college students near OSU. They have two sons. In this session from July 13, James examines how the existence of objective moral values and duties provides powerful evidence against a naturalistic worldview, carefully analyzing and interacting with the work of some of the top atheistic thinkers on this subject. We will not only explore why theism is a far more compelling explanation of objective morality, but also why it is far more appealing.

Can We Be Certain that Evolution Is a Myth? - Christian Research Institute

Furthermore, in Darwin’s day such enormously complex structures as a human egg were thought to be quite simple—for all practical purposes, little more than a microscopic blob of gelatin. Today, we know that a fertilized human egg is among the most organized, complex structures in the universe. In an age of scientific enlightenment, it is incredible to think people are willing to maintain that something so vastly complex arose by chance. Like an egg or the human eye, the universe is a masterpiece of precision and design that could not have come into existence by chance.

Creation: The Longest Week Ever?

In the past century, several other new positions have reduced Genesis 1 to little more than poetry. They imply that it is okay to ignore most of the details as long as one acknowledges that God created this world and made man in his image. For example, an idea known as the framework hypothesis argues that Genesis 1 is semi-poetic, overstressing an artificial parallelism of the creation days and groping for other elements that would make room for a nonliteral interpretation of the text.

The Apostle Paul Supplied Ample Evidence of Jesus’ Divinity

C.S. Lewis famously called on us to make a choice: either Jesus is a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord. Given Jesus’ miracles, forgiveness of sins, and claims of divinity, Lewis concluded that labeling Him a mere prophet is woefully inadequate so we must face the trilemma. Skeptics often suggest C.S. Lewis omitted a fourth option: legend. The intention of the present blog is to demonstrate why the fourth option is not viable.

The Civil War was not about States’ Rights, it was about Slavery

Time and again, as I read through primary source documents surrounding the Civil War–one of my historical interests–or biographies of various persons who lived in the lead up to the Civil War, I find that the refrain that the Civil War was really about states’ rights is nothing but a tired canard. It is a myth, one that is used for any number of reasons, not always nefarious. Nevertheless, it is just that–a myth. The Civil War was certainly about slavery and there’s not really a historical question about that. The evidence for this can be found in two broad streams: first, that  if  the Civil War was truly about states’ rights, there is massive inconsistency on the part of those who allegedly decided to fight to the death for the same; second, numerous clear statements exist regarding the secession of Southern States being about slavery.

49 “If Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, Shouldn’t all Jewish People Believe in Him?”

‘Why have the Jews rejected Jesus?” Looking at the statistics, almost all of them have missed their Messiah. I can not wrap my head around this. I was told by a Jewish Christian that the majority doesn’t mean truth. That doesn’t answer the question. I look up to many prominent, intelligent, orthodox Jews in politics. They say they have really looked into their faith. The main case I have heard them give for Judaism is that the law brings about a good society. The Jewish people do appear to have a much better life structure. They seem to really flourish. I’m not convinced Jesus was the messiah based on prophecy. The Jewish people don’t look at God the same. How can you find truth when Christians say the Old Testament means one thing and Jews say another thing? I believe the case for the New Testament and Resurrection is very strong, but I just don’t understand how they could have missed it? It just doesn’t make sense. I don’t even know where to start on this journey. I just want to know truth and I’m afraid of missing it.

Husbands Are to Respect Their Wives, Too

Rather, it is the same as the kind of honor you would give to God, Christ, and ruling elders. This is not to say that you place your relationship with your wife on the same level as your relationship with God. He is to be your number one. It is also not to say that women are to be ruling over their husbands as would a ruling elder or a civil ruler. Marriage is a partnership. It is, however, to illustrate for us the magnitude of the honor, respect, and reverence that is to be shown to women by their husbands.
