Why We Ought to Have Confidence When We Make the Case for Christianity (Video) | Cold Case Christianity

J. Warner Wallace describes why Christians ought to have confidence when talking about the Gospel.

So When Was The Last Time You Checked Your Unstated Assumptions?

You know what I mean; assumptions like if a person is a Harvard graduate, he or she must be smart. Or anybody who becomes a plumber or a carpenter isn’t likely to be reading philosophy at nig…

How Christian Apologetics Can Transform Your Faith

I grew up in a Christian home and was so devout as a young girl that I wanted to join a convent and become wedded to God (although I was not Catholic). So it might be surprising to know that I considered myself to be agnostic by the time that I entered college.

Arming Christian Students With the Truth

In my experience as a youth pastor, I learned the importance of providing intellectual tools and training. I watched my first graduating class of seniors walk away from Christianity in large percentages before I embraced a Case Making approach with my students. After observing the struggle these seniors experienced, I changed the way I prepared my students. I began to draw upon my experience as a police officer for guidance. Young officers are given and number of tools to help us do the job, but even more importantly, we are provided with the necessary training in how to use these tools. When it comes to equipping Christian students, the evidences for God’s existence, the reliability of the Bible, and the truth of the Christian worldview are the tools we must provide (sources like On Guard and Cold-Case Christianity may be helpful). Beyond this, however, young Christians need to know how to think about these evidences and communicate them to others…

Seeing Is Not Always Believing: A Worldview Lesson from Sequoia Trees

To prove that sequoias were real, the tree was cut down and shipped in pieces to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair where it was reassembled for spectators. Would this be enough to convince skeptics? Nope. Amazingly, the tree was reassembled, and viewers still believed it was a hoax. In fact, it was referred to as the "California hoax." The physical remains of the tree itself was not enough to persuade people of its existence. But why?

Proof that God Exists in 8 Minutes

See many of Robinson's apologetics books at http://bit.ly/2HxDh9Q - Numerous fresh Apologetics books on Islam, Atheism, Hinduism, Ethics, Trump, etc. There is so much proof and evidence for God, so much so, that it makes author Mike Robinson's job more than a little difficult. Thus, herein Robinson provides some fresh, yet quick proofs for the existence of God. He demonstrates that God's existence is certain.

The Cause of the Universe Must Be Intentional

We know the universe began to exist. That fact is agreed upon by the majority of theists and atheists alike. But what else can we know from that fact? By conceding that the universe has a beginning, does that give us proof of the Christian God? Not really, but it gets us closer than you may initially realize.

Midweek Apologetics Hit & Misc: Is God too Odd?

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.

When the Dystopian Tells Us the Way the World Is | Stand to Reason

Ironically, Niccol’s way to explore a better world is to give us dystopian ones. Maybe he starts with the way things shouldn’t be because it’s a great starting point: No one thinks the world is as it should be. But here’s the problem for secular moviegoers: If there’s no God, then there is not a way “the world should be.” There’s no standard or purpose for anything, so the very idea of the cosmos being “broken" makes no sense. But even though the atheist’s worldview cannot support notions of objective moral “better” or “worse,” they still yearn for a morally “better” world.

Our goal as Christ-followers is to resemble Him more and more. But sometimes as we study His Word, apply His truth and do what He says, we get stuck.

Sometimes the perfect book with God-centered words read at just the right time can get us moving again.

For example, we might say, “The long hands of the grandfather clocks in this shop sweep 360 degrees every hour. For the long hands of all clocks that have circular faces sweep 360 degrees every hour.” Nobody would think us reasonable if we said, “From these two sentences all we can learn is that the only clocks whose long hands sweep 360 degrees each hour are the grandfather clocks in this shop, because those are the ones we are talking about.” No. We brought in a universal point to support the specific one.

Counterpoints: Lawrence Krauss and J. Warner Wallace

Lawrence Krauss : "Physics has changed what we mean by 'nothing'...Empty space is a boiling, bubbling brew of virtual particles popping in and out of existence...If you wait long enough, that kind of 'nothing' will always produce particles." [1] J. Warner Wallace : "The evidence demonstrates all space, time, and matter  began  with the origin of the universe.  Whatever preceded the universe  cannot , therefore, have been spatial, temporal, or material,  at least by the definitions we have been using all along .  Emergent models redefine the meaning of "nothing" to include "something" (the primordial vacuum, virtual particles, and time).  While this solves the problem semantically, it doesn't solve the problem evidentially."  [2] To checkout our entire Counterpoints series, go here .

Intelligent Design and Alfred Russel Wallace’s Intelligent Evolution — Different Yet the Same | Evolution News

The idea of intelligent design, although congenial to some religious views of the universe, is independent of them. For example, the possibility of intelligent design is quite compatible with common descent, which some religious people disdain. What’s more, although some religious thinkers envision active, continuing intervention in nature, intelligent design is quite compatible with the view that the universe operates by unbroken laws, with the design of life perhaps packed into this initial set-up. In fact, possibilities two and three listed above — where non-randomness was assigned either to complex laws or to the environment — can be viewed as particular examples of this. I think it makes for greater clarity of discussion, however, just to acknowledge explicitly in those cases that the laws or special conditions were purposely designed to produce life.

Does Archaeology Support the Bible?

According to that biblical principle of “two or three witnesses,” we shall now select evidences that support the truth and accuracy of God’s Word. In every area, the evidence has been forthcoming: God has vindicated His Word, and His Book is a genuine writing, with prophecies and revelation that must be taken seriously. His Book is unique because it is His Book.

42 Twelve Gospel Passages to Soak In

“The grace of God in truth” (Colossians 1:6) is the shock that brings a dead soul to life, and the charge that keeps it living. The gospel is the gas that awakens and energizes the human heart, not mere truth — essential as truth is. Two plus two equals four — that’s true. It just doesn’t do much to jump-start and drive a languishing soul.

44 What Do You Feed Your Eyes?

Yes, our eyes will be drawn to what our hearts desire, but they also often hold sway. Our eyes are not neutral. They influence and even drive our hearts. If we feed them what is true, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable, our eyes can grow our faith, heighten our love, and intensify our happiness. But where the eyes wander, the heart quickly follows — and falls. How many of us leave our eyes on too long a leash?

Answering Atheist Objections

This is a famous objection. Notice again it does not target any specific argument, just the concept of God as a whole. There are several problems with this objection. First, it doesn’t argue for atheism at all. It doesn’t undercut the warrant for any of the premises of theistic arguments. What it does is attempt to establish that we do not know which kind of God is the real one. (Of course, this is not its intent: its intent is appeal to ridicule, where it is hoped the theist will quietly abandon his arguments instead of being forced to accept something so ludicrous as a Flying Spaghetti Monster.) Second, the concept is a derivative. That is to say, the objector takes the concept of God and gratuitously tacks on the attribute of its being “spaghetti,” “flying,” and a “monster” (whatever that may mean). Since the objector gets the idea of such a god from the traditional concept of God, we can say it’s really not that plausible after all that the FSM exists to the exclusion of the real God (explanation: view it like a bad remake of your favorite movie.

Was Jesus’ death copied from Krishna? Then, we’ll compare the idea of resurrection in each of these stories. Was Krishna really a crucified Savior?
