Commonsense Christian Apologetics (Part 2)

The origin of the concept of falling short of some independent standard of behavior and thinking…requiring us to ask forgiveness from other people we have harmed or offended…in a materialistic Darwinian worldview has no survival-of-the-fittest value…and ascribes to the capacity of material particles and energy a broadly theoretical, God-like potential for creating premeditated end-points such as forgiveness… in the realm of moral reasoning.

The Sower's Apologetics Profile - When is Apologetics Effective?

What is the effectiveness of apologetics ? The Holy Scriptures tell us that God has revealed himself to mankind but that humanity as a whole does not want God (Romans 1:18-20). This leads people to create crafty ways in which to avoid God. Jesus also revealed the inner depths of the human psyche in this exchange of God’s wooing and the human response to that truth in the Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:3-23, Mark 4:2-20, Luke 8:4-18). In this parable, the sower (one who relays God’s truth) scatters seeds (the truth of God) and the seeds fall on four different kinds of ground (types of human dispositions).

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?

The Reason Why Few Christians Are Willing to Be Christian Case Makers | Cold Case Christianity

Nothing could be truer. If Christianity is an accurate description of reality, it ought to inspire us to commit our time and effort. It ought to cause us to do whatever necessary to become the best Christian case makers possible. The reason why few of us are willing to become case makers is simply because case making requires work . Hard work. But it’s worth it, because this kind of work is actually a form of worship . When we dedicate ourselves to understanding and defending what we believe, we are worshiping God with our minds. I hope you’re willing to be part of the “ten percent”. Let’s do whatever it takes to make the case.

4 Things You Need To Know About Apologetics

The goal of apologetics is to clear away the debris of doubt and skepticism to make a path for the gospel to be heard. For some, this sounds attractive. For others, making an appeal and a defense for the Christian faith sounds like a distraction from the gospel.

An Investigation: Who Decided What to Include in the Bible?

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.

Evolution’s Flawed Approach to Science

Adding to this concern is the impact that the evolutionary paradigm has on scientific advance. Because many in the scientific community view biological systems as fundamentally flawed, they are predisposed to conclude—oftentimes, prematurely—that biological systems lack function or purpose when initial investigations into these systems fail to uncover any obvious rationale for why these systems are the way they are. And, once these investigators conclude that a biological system is flawed, the motivation to continue studying the system dissipates. Why try to understand a flawed design? Why focus attention on biological systems that lack function? Why invest research dollars studying systems that serve no purpose?

3 Christian Urban Legends That Need to Die

"go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,   and teaching  them to obey everything I have commanded you ." (Emphasis mine.) Unless His disciples had one heck of a mime routine, spreading Jesus' teachings across the nations would be next to impossible without words.   We must keep in mind that these were the original eye-witnesses to His resurrection. A careful read through the book of Acts tells us everything we need to know about how they went about fulfilling this "Great Commission." They didn't simply go from town to town loving on people, and feeding the poor (although they did that too!). Paul reasoned with the Jews  in the synagogues, and conversed with secular philosophers in Athens. They spread the message of Jesus' resurrection everywhere they went—and this required a lot of words.  The Apostle Paul wrote,

Common Logical Fallacies and Examples from Social Media

I was invited to have a chat with an atheist named Tony Murphy on social media who calls himself Hackenslash. When I asked him for the topic that he was interested in discussing, he sent me a meme that indicated he wanted to discuss (my) logical fallacies. A logical fallacy is a flaw in reasoning. The intention of this blog is to define some of the most common fallacies and to offer examples in an attempt to reduce their prevalence.

A Case for Creation 101: God's Nature - The Trinity

A misunderstanding that many people have about Christianity, especially those in other religions such as Islam, is the concept of the Trinity. Christians are often accused of “poly-theism” (worshipping multiple gods). However, this is not what Christianity teaches about the Trinity. As we study through Genesis you will notice times where God uses the plural term “We” or “Us,” and there are many times throughout the Old Testament where people meet God in human form, often referred to as a Christophany or Theophany. In addition, the New Testament gives us many examples where Jesus Himself claims to be God; and it is through the Holy Spirit that believers are given revelation and power to do God’s work. The concept of the Trinity is not a problem for Christianity, it is a solution to what we find about God and His nature in the Scriptures.

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.

Think of the bondservants. They were the physical property of a human master. And yet Paul says to them in 1 Corinthians 7:21, “Do not be concerned about it. (But if you can gain your freedom, avail yourself of the opportunity.)” What Paul meant was circumstances, even very difficult ones, don’t disqualify anyone from God’s assignment. If we can extricate ourselves honorably from such circumstances, we ought to do it. But if not, let us consider it God’s assignment, at least for today, and be faithful,

Late July 2018 Presuppositional Apologetics’ Links

Thanks for this list Jim! I followed the link “Slapping down Christians and Creationists”, and discovered “Wretched Radio”! I don’t usually listen to podcasts (data cap), but that was fascinating. It was the first time I heard of Ken Ham. I said a prayer for him, ’cause it sometimes seems that internet trolls know no mercy. There were other things I learned from the show as well. I knew that I am a creationist, but I now know that I am also a “young earth creationist”. I have been for years, I just didn’t know they had a name for it. I’ve just been believing that The Bible says what It means (with perhaps other messages which are revealed to us when we’re ready). Is “Wretched Radio” just an internet podcast, or is it also on the airways somewhere?

God’s Kingdom Has a Startling Economic System

Every earthly kingdom has its own way of doing things, its own customs and policies regarding food, sex, family, and religion. And every kingdom has an economic policy. But when Jesus welcomes us into his alternate kingdom, something strange happens. We discover a whole new world. And we soon discover that Jesus’s kingdom looks different from the kingdoms to which we’ve grown accustomed. Perhaps you’ve grown used to thinking about this dynamic in terms of God’s sexual ethics or his emphasis on honesty and integrity. Many of us sense that our United States kingdom, for instance, has an entirely different “marriage and family” policy than the one Jesus calls us to embrace. We also rightly sense that when our culture’s approach to family or sex conflicts with God’s approach, we must choose to “obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29). But King Jesus also has unique economic policies, his own economic program. In the West, our prevailing economic worldview sees people as self-interested individuals with limitless desires in a limited world, who seek to increase consumption and leisure by earning as much money as possible.

Why I Know the Disciples Didn't Conspire to Fabricate the Resurrection of Jesus | Cold Case Christianity

How do we know the resurrection of Jesus really occurred ? Were the gospel authors and disciples telling the truth about this central claim of Christianity, or did they conspire to fabricate the most compelling story of all time? Is the Resurrection simply a lie? In my experience as a detective, I have investigated many conspiracies and multiple suspect crimes. While successful conspiracies are the popular subject of many movies and novels, I’ve come to learn that they are (in reality) very difficult to pull off. Successful conspiracies share a number of common characteristics:

Two Reasons the Trinity Matters

How much does the Trinity matter to you? If you found out tomorrow that God is actually only one person instead of three, would your relationship with God feel any different? Would it require a drastic overhaul in the way you think or witness or pray? How much does the Trinity matter to you personally? How much does the Trinity matter to your church? If you found out tomorrow that your beloved youth pastor had become a staunch modalist—he now insists the Father, Son, and Spirit are actually one person in three manifestations instead of three distinct persons—would your church excommunicate him? Or would that seem like splitting hairs? Is the Athanasian Creed really right to say, “Whoever wishes to be saved must think thus of the Trinity. And whoever rejects this faith will perish everlastingly”? Or is that the overstatement of the millennium? Judging by the church’s historic creeds, Christians used to think the Trinity is really important. Judging by the honest answers likely given to the questions above, many modern Christians have lost the sense of why it’s so important, even if they’ve retained it in their doctrinal statements.

34 Pop Culture Primer: Movies | Think Christian

“White people,” Baldwin wrote, during the heat of the Civil Rights Movement, “want to believe Birmingham is on Mars; they don’t want to believe there is one step actually or morally between Birmingham and Los Angeles.” One of the strengths of the film is the way it shows us that “Birmingham” is, indeed, only one step from anywhere in America. Peck layers the film with images that connect Baldwin’s words to the country’s past and present: we see the dead bodies of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., then see the faces of Trayvon Martin and Tamir Rice. We see images of a white mob attacking those at a lunch counter sit-in during the Civil Rights Movement; we then see images of white policemen beating Rodney King, as well as Eric Garner pinned down on the sidewalk. The past and the present mingle, and Peck makes us witnesses; we see and cannot deny the connections.

Contradictions: Should Christians Pray in Public or Not?

And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. ( Matthew 6:5–8 )

Massachusetts bill dies that would teach 12-year-olds how to perform oral, anal sex - The College Fix

Not satisfied with merely introducing the concept of certain non-reproductive sex acts, “Get Real” goes on to teach twelve-year-olds in eye-watering detail how to properly use a “dental dam,” which is “placed over the vulva … or anus during oral sex.” Concerned that your seventh-grader might not have a “dental dam” handy? No problem. State education officials and Planned Parenthood want your child to know they can “also use non-microwavable saran wrap.” [This reference also happens to dilute S.C. Johnson & Son’s trademark.] When the nation’s largest abortion provider tells young children to make their own prophylactics at home out of kitchen implements, that ought to concern us.

Morality, Therefore God: An Evangelistic Strategy - Christian Research Institute

God Is the Best Explanation. Objective moral facts exist and must have come from somewhere. In the eighteenth century, the philosopher Gottfried Leibniz articulated what he called the principle of sufficient reason. The principle states that everything that exists has a sufficient explanation of its existence. This can be illustrated by imagining the spontaneous appearance of a purple elephant hovering in the sky above bewildered onlookers. Upon hearing plausible explanations for the flying purple elephant’s appearance, no reasonable person would then reject any hypothesis in favor of no explanation at all. But atheists do just this when they affirm the existence of objective moral facts, yet deny the only legitimate explanation: God. To this atheistic moral realist, moral facts are just there, and need no explanation. This fails as a reasonable option according to the principle of sufficient reason, and should thus be rejected. Now the task of the truth-seeker is to sift through arguments until we find the best explanation for objective morality.
