Cold-Case Christianity Teaching Outlines | Cold Case Christianity

We get requests every day from people just like you who are trying to teach the material from Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels . If you’re a pastor, small group leader, or teacher, we’ve assembled everything you’ll need to effectively communicate the case for the reliability of the New Testament Gospels. If you’ve ever had to make a presentation of this kind, you know the important questions:

The Importance of Muscle Memory in Christian Case Making | Cold Case Christianity

That’s why the best Christian Case Makers are the ones who continually engage the culture and respond to the challenges levied by unbelievers. The best Christian Case Makers see each opportunity to engage others as an act of training, if nothing else. It doesn’t matter how small the opportunity. You may be in a brief “one on one” conversation with a co-worker, or you may be talking with a waiter about issues in the culture; whatever the situation, the more you engage, the better you are at… engaging! The more you initiate conversations, the better (and more comfortable) you will become as a conversation starter, and it won’t be long until you’re involved in a number of important conversations. As we engage the people in our world, our Christian Case Making becomes a matter of “muscle memory”. We begin to respond fluidly and instinctively rather than lurching through each situation as though we’re navigating it for the first time. Not many of us will get the opportunity to address hundreds of people at once, but if we do, our training opportunities in smaller settings will help us to respond in the larger context.

Lay Aside the Weight of Insincerity

And no one more is more impressive than Jesus. He’s the one we want everyone else to see. The glory of his grace is more clearly seen through our sins that he has paid for and forgiven, and the glory of his power is more clearly seen in our weaknesses (2 Corinthians 12:9–10). When we wax our jars, we are doing far more than concealing our defects; we are concealing Jesus’s glory.

I saw through many reviews that people were pleased with this version of apologetics.So I am planning to spend some serious time reflecting on this as I read to see the light shine through in a much more simple and precise way.

Q & A with Dr. Craig: Why Bother?

Q: I am a very open minded person and consider all possibilities. I am open to the possibility of a God and an afterlife. I am also open to the possibility that this God could be one who demands and expects that I obey and serve him or that I would be condemned to a horrible afterlife. I have been doing some open-minded research on the subject of life after death. As of right now, it doesn't matter what anyone says to me or what claims other people present to me in regards to God's character, if he is real or not, or if I am a blind sinner or not.

Why Francis Schaeffer Matters: The Church in Culture

Francis Schaeffer’s view of the church in modern culture is multifaceted yet cuts straight to the point.  He does not mince words or play clever evangelical games.  He believes one major problem with Christians is that they see things in bits and pieces.  They have failed to see that modern man’s despair has come to fruition because of a shift in worldview.  He contends that Christians should begin to think in terms of the big picture.  They should have a view of spiritual reality that is authentic and covers all areas of life.  Indeed, the Lordship of Christ covers all life and all life equally.

The Centuries-Old Habits of the Heart

Trump deserves strong criticism for his failure to specifically and clearly condemn white nationalism. The lure of power and votes do not justify his silence. Yet, to criticize an unpopular president is easy. Perhaps the harder, more difficult task we face in the wake of Charlottesville is to consider how we as citizens and Christians engage in a similar type of silence on a regular basis. Many of us mobilize in defense of ideals of equality every time an incident like Charlottesville occurs but quickly retreat to our comfort zones when public attention dies down. Daily battles for equality in church, education, employment, and the criminal justice system are much harder to maintain.

Where Is God’s Love in Loss?

For the next several years, I struggled to reconcile the truth that God loves me with the reality of my family’s pain. It took over a decade for me to find the answers I was looking for, but when I read through John 11:3–6, I finally began to properly interpret my pain through the lens of God’s love. The answers in this passage are not easy, but when we take these verses at face value, they are extremely beautiful and healing. These four verses hold the answers our hearts are looking for as we seek to embrace God’s love while also being honest about the pain we each experience.

'House of Cards' Keeps Scraping the Bottom of Evil’s Barrel

This sense of predictability casts a shadow over the entire season, which begins with Frank’s campaign race against Republican newcomer, Will Conway. But any dramatic possibilities this competition might hold quickly evaporate as Frank and Claire settle into their familiar roles. In short, we already know how the race will end. We know that the couple will stop at nothing to consolidate their power, that they view the entire justice system as nothing more than an elaborate obstacle course, that votes will be rigged, and innocent blood will be shed. It’s not just that Frank’s ill-gotten victory over Conway is a foregone conclusion; it’s that we no longer care. Invulnerable characters are boring characters.

Alexander Vilenkin: 'All the evidence we have says that the universe had a beginning'

Did the cosmos have a beginning? The Big Bang theory seems to suggest it did, but in recent decades, cosmologists have concocted elaborate theories – for example, an eternally inflating universe or a cyclic universe – which claim to avoid the need for a beginning of the cosmos. Now it appears that the universe really had a beginning after all, even if it wasn’t necessarily the Big Bang.

Local Atheist or Modern Pharisee — Who Is the Greater Threat?

Welcome back to the Ask Pastor John podcast. We close out the week with an email from a listener named David. “Hello, Pastor John! Up until his crucifixion, Jesus faced far more opposition from the Pharisees and others with an unhealthy religious spirit than he did from the Romans and the secular society. Do you believe that, in a similar way, the greatest opposition to God’s kingdom comes from within the church or the religious world, more so than the secular world?”

(Design advocates appreciate the Grants for their findings that undermine neo-Darwinism , although they would not see it that way.)

6 Apologetics Mistakes to Avoid

Every Christian is at some point involved in the task of defending the faith. We should always be prepared to “make a defense to anyone who asks for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect” ( 1 Pet. 3:15 ). Unfortunately, sometimes we can do more harm than good while trying to defend the faith or reach out to a skeptic.

How Does Christianity Fulfill our Deepest Aspiration? Author Interview with Greg Ganssle

GANSSLE: I start there because I think that most people do not care whether or not Christianity is true. They are already convinced that it is a story that hinders human flourishing, rather than a story that secures and promotes flourishing. What is startling is the fact that the things most human beings care most about fit better within the Christian story than they do in the various atheistic stories. Once we see this connection, we see that we want the Christian story to be true. Of course, the fact that we want it to be true does not show that it is true. But once a person wants it to be true, the objections to the truth of the Gospel seem much smaller.

Meanwhile, 1 in 10 Americans say sin doesn’t exist (10%) or that they are not sinners (8%), while a larger share (15%) prefer not to say if they are sinners at all. Only 1 in 20 is fine with being sinners (5%).

The Reasonable Expectations That Cause Mythologies to Resemble Jesus

The Reasonable Expectations That Cause Mythologies to Resemble Jesus by J Warner Wallace While the similarities between Jesus and the “divine” mythological characters that preceded him are grossly overstated , we ought to expect some parallels between Jesus and the imaginative creations of those who lived prior to Christ’s appearance on earth. As ancient people began to consider the possibility of God’s existence, a series of reasonable inferences certainly must have guided the fabrication of their mythological deities. Consider the following reasonable conclusions one might draw when thinking about the possible existence of God: A Creator God would be incredibly strong and likely emerge in our world in a way that defies the natural order of things. A Creator God would have the power to perform miracles and control the forces of the natural environment. A Creator God, if He wanted us to know Him, would likely provide us with some form of mediator. A Creator God, if He was to come to earth, would certainly draw attention to Himself, gathering disciples. A Creator God would be powerful enough to defeat death.

Two reasons to avoid premarital sex: trust issues and contact with exes

That distrust is at least partly the legacy of the libertarian sexual ethic, which assumes that sexual activity outside of marriage is typically okay so long as people are mutually consenting to the acts. And that distrust is why I have a hard time believing—as Noah Smith does—that sexual permissiveness will somehow evolve into more stable marriages for the working class. (Indeed, having more sexual partners prior to marriage is linked to greater odds of divorce, as Nicholas Wolfinger and W. Bradford Wilcox recently documented.) There is no invisible hand that will transform James and Jessica’s distrust and cynicism, which stems in part from their multiple past sexual relationships, into trust and an enduring marriage. What the working class needs—what we all need—to achieve our shared aspirations for lifelong love and a stable family is social permission to date without immediately having sex.
