How Can You Make a Career in Apologetics?

Part of the vision of our Biola M.A. Christian Apologetics program is to train apologists to be a resource for the local church. In fact, our dream is that churches would consider the need for a “Pastor or Apologetics” as important as a men’s ministry leader or a youth pastor. Until this dream becomes a reality, here’s a few ways to make a career in apologetics (If you think I have missed any, please let me know):

Revolutionary, Darwin's House of Cards, and Q&A

On today's edition of the Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank quotes from Dr. Philip E. Johnson foreword in his book, Fatal Flaws: What Evolutionists Don't Want You to Know. This month CRI has two special resources to equip you to counter Darwinism: Darwin's House of Cards, and the DVD, Revolutionary: Michael Behe and the Mystery of Molecular Machines. Hank also answers the following questions: What are your thoughts on the popular ... See More pre-tribulational rapture doctrine? Do you think that Darwin thought that the first living organism that emerged from the green slime had to have the ability to reproduce? What are your thoughts on the doctrine of Christ's blood "running through our veins?" Can you shed any light on Jesus' attitude towards the woman in Matthew 15:21-28? What are your thoughts on the Church of Christ's view of water baptism?

Four Ways the Earth Is Fine-Tuned for Life | Cold Case Christianity

Like the death scene I investigated, the layers of foundational, regional, and locational evidence in the universe show signs of “tampering.” The forces governing atomic structure, the matter of the universe and the creation of chemicals are conveniently aligned to allow life’s existence. Even tiny changes in these forces have disastrous consequences for life. Similarly narrow ranges exist related to our galaxy and planet. While the appearance of fine-tuning in any one of these cosmic parameters might not be all that compelling, the cumulative nature of these conditions obligates us to seek an explanation.

What Can Christians Learn from the Apostolic Fathers? Interview with Author Ken Berding

KEN BERDING: I’m so glad you’re reading the book! The Apostolic Fathers are a name given in the modern era to the earliest Christian writers who wrote just after the age of the apostles. Their writings span A.D. 95-160. They include 1 Clement, the letters of Ignatius, Polycarp’s Letter to the Philippians, The Didache, fragments from Papias, the Shepherd of Hermas, the Letter of Barnabas (not Paul’s co-worker), 2 Clement, Diognetus, and The Martyrdom of Polycarp. Why are they important? The reason they’re important is because of how early they were written. Some of these authors actually knew apostles or companions of apostles. If we could talk to them, they could answer many questions (and actually did answer a few of them in their writings!) that get asked about the apostolic age. They also help us observe early developments in Christian doctrine and church polity. Besides, they’re really interesting…for the most part…

Kicked Out of Church: How God Brought Me Home

I had been through difficult times before: the tragic loss of my father in childhood, the torturous cancer battle that took my mother’s life in my twenties, and the horrific fight of my firstborn against malignant brain cancer a decade earlier. But nothing hit me as hard as my son’s genetic disorder. It was a rare aging condition called Cockayne Syndrome. There is no treatment for CS. You watch your child slowly deteriorate and suffer horribly. I stopped praying the day we received the diagnosis, and I didn’t pray again for five years.

The ‘Prophets’ and ‘Apostles’ Leading the Quiet Revolution in American Religion

Many of these apostles run megachurches, including Bethel Church in Redding California, HRock Church in Pasadena, and the International House of Prayer (IHOP) in Kansas City. But their real power lies in their innovative approach to selling faith. They’ve combined multi-level marketing, Pentecostal signs and wonders, and post-millennial optimism to connect directly with millions of spiritual customers. That allows them to reap millions in donations, conference fees, and book and DVD sales. And because these INC apostles claim to get direction straight from God, they operate with almost no oversight.

Why Does God Allow Evil?: An Interview with Dr. Clay Jones

Then you are in the right place.

Bound for heaven?

“Alas, alas, God’s ‘way of salvation’ is almost entirely unknown today, the nature of Christ’s salvation is almost universally misunderstood, and the terms of His salvation misrepresented on every hand. The ‘Gospel’ which is now being proclaimed is, in nine cases out of every ten, but a perversion of the Truth, and tens of thousands, assured they are bound for heaven, are now hastening to hell as fast as time can take them…

Religious Liberty Is for Everyone

Religious freedom has always been a priority for American evangelicals who rejected state control of the church. And Christians have likewise advocated for fellow believers around the world who do not have the right to worship and practice their faith freely. But in recent years Christians have become concerned as our own American government, under pressure from lobby groups and even voters, seems intent on enforcing a kind of secularism and restricting the free exercise of religion, especially when taxpayers funds are involved.

Can You Repent Without Changing? The Beginning of the End for Sexual Sin

If our primary problem is sin — and our corrupt, rebellious nature — then we know what primarily needs to be addressed. Since a diagnosis dictates the treatment, if sin is the diagnosis, it must be treated with faith and repentance. With sexual sin, real change can only begin with real repentance — a change of the heart.

Do All Religions Lead to God?

For example, 1 John 4:1 states, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit” — If a spirit says, “This is the true religion, or this is the true God over here,” don’t believe them — “But test the spirits to see whether they are from God.” How are we going to do that? John continues, “for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God” (1 John 4:2).

Dennis Nørmark Response- Does God Exist? // Debate - Turek vs Nørmark

Have you ever pondered about why you exist? Where does everything we can see come from, and what is the purpose of life? The answers to these questions look radically different, whether you add or remove God from the equation. We, Skywalk (a youth church from Randers, Denmark), are therefore very excited to have had the opportunity to host a debate with the title 'Does God Exist?', between Frank Turek and Dennis Nørmark. Frank Turek is an award-winning author, having written the books 'I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist', 'Legislating Morality' and more, and is an international speaker. He has previously debated atheists like Christopher Hitchens and Dave Silverman. Dennis Nørmark is an anthropologist, author and one of Denmark's leading atheists. He is the co-founder of the Humanist Society and known from Danish television.

Paul, one of the greatest followers of Jesus ever, was on trial in Rome, and not one person stepped forward to defend him. Not one! He was absolutely by himself. Nobody stepped forward to say, “This is a good guy. He’s alright.” Yet Paul did not say, “Those jerks — after all I’ve done for them all these years!” Instead, he said, “May it not be counted against them.” In other words, he was not going to let himself become bitter. Because bitterness always makes loneliness worse.

Do You Pray Like an Atheist?

Calling on the name of the Lord is no mere generic plea for divine aid. This is not groping for God as a distant deity. This is not even the admirable reverence of the ancient priest-king Melchizedek, righteous as he may have been, who blesses Abraham in the name of “God Most High” (Genesis 14:18–23), but does appear know God’s personal name, Yahweh (represented in our English translations by Lᴏʀᴅ with the small caps). And this emphatically is not the “unknown God” reverenced in Athens and referenced by Paul in his address at the Areopagus. “What you worship as unknown , this I proclaim to you” (Acts 17:23).

The No. 1 Reason Churches End Up in Court Is No Longer Child Abuse

The CLT analysis—a review of state appellate and federal court rulings—found that 8.7 percent of church court cases last year addressed property related-issues, down from 10.2 percent in 2015. However, property cases still ranked as the new No. 1 reason because child sex abuse fell even more, down to 8.3 percent in 2016 from 11.7 percent in 2015.

31
The Pay Gap Is Worse for Pastor-Moms

Co-pastoring can give married women an immediate comparison for fair wages; she and husband Tommy cut the paycheck right down the middle, while she earns additional pay for also serving as the worship pastor. (This setup prevents one scenario the researchers described: Some churches view pastors’ wives as a benefit since they may be expected to volunteer or do unpaid work, whereas pastors’ husbands—especially when they work full-time outside the church—aren’t viewed as offering the same perk.)

Scripture for Life: The Sufficiency of Scripture by Stephen Nichols | August 3, 2017

The concept that an ancient book might offer sufficiency for life rubs against the grain of our postmodern culture. How can one source possess all the answers for life, let alone an archaic, outdated text? Behind this question lies the desire for the individual to choose what is sufficient, a grasp for autonomy that began with our first parents in the garden of Eden. They sought to cast off the yoke of the Lord, which they considered heavy and unnecessary, and instead they exalted themselves to the place of their Creator, arbiters of sufficiency. This sin remains alive today, compelling Christians who have tasted the streams of everlasting life flowing from our Savior to proclaim the truth that life and its rule may only be found in Christ and His Word.

Refuting Aslan's 'Zealot' at the Ground Level

  is yet another modern reconstruction of Jesus. It is not fresh and new, as it claims to be, but reflects longstanding debate. That debate is between those skeptical about the Gospels' portraits of Jesus and those who see them as complementary pictures of Jesus as he was and is. … It's not at all clear, however, that Aslan understands the history of Jesus better than the Gospel writers did. … There are good reasons to suspect the Jesus of history was directly responsible for being confessed as Christ. It was zeal for Jesus' person that drove the earliest disciples to preach him as unique. This is something the disciples not only thought about but also experienced—even to the point of being willing to die for what they knew to be true. Zeal for Jesus arose from his own claims about what God was accomplishing through him (Darrell Bock).

The Death of God and the Death of Christ | Reasonable Faith

You can probably see now where I'm headed. Christ could not die with respect to his divine nature but he could die with respect to his human nature. What is human death? It is the separation of the soul from the body when the body ceases to be a living organism. The soul survives the body and will someday be re-united with it in a resurrected form. That's what happened to Christ. His soul was separated from his body and his body ceased to be alive. He became temporarily a disembodied person. On the third day God raised him from the dead in a transformed body.

And what will you say to Christians around the world who refused to renounce their faith with a gun to their heads when you surrendered your principles at the threat of a non-violent educational agency?

The Theology Debate That's Dividing Christian Hip-Hop

Amid all the flurry, articles, tracks, rebuttal tracks, podcasts and discussion that have popped up to address the #CHHbeef phenomenon (which is barely two weeks old), perhaps the most important point is consistently missed. CHH may be Christian, but it’s also hip-hop, a performance art. As long as the disagreements can be argued over with a certain level of mutual respect and decorum (which Ruslan’s latest proves can be done, even in diss tracks), it’s possible for debate and competition to elevate, rather than tear down, faith based hip-hop.
