The Education of Jesus of Nazareth

By Brian Chilton Often, critical scholars make Jesus of Nazareth out to be a country bumpkin, one who was uneducated and unsophisticated. However, when one evaluates his life and teaching style, it appears that Jesus of Nazareth was a well-polished individual who spoke and taught with great authority and wisdom. The Jewish leaders marveled at Jesus, saying, ‚ÄúHow is this man so learned, since he hasn‚Äôt been trained‚ÄĚ (Jn. 7:14, CSB)? While this writer holds that Jesus was the divine...

You Can’t Make Your Kid a Christian

By Natasha Crain I thrive on control. I love projects that can be broken into goals, tasks, and success or failure criteria.

For a major ‚Äúcontrol freak‚ÄĚ like me, having...

When C.S. Lewis Warned Us About Alfie Evans and Charlie Gard

How Can God be Sovereign over Evil and not Morally Culpable for It

By Ryan Leasure It‚Äôs not uncommon to hear those in the non-Reformed tradition make the claim that Reformed belief necessarily makes God blameworthy for evil. After all, if God has sovereignly decreed everything whatsoever to come to pass ‚ÄĒ including evil ‚ÄĒ how is he not morally culpable for it? It‚Äôs certainly a good question, but as I‚Äôll try to point out, it‚Äôs one that misunderstands the Reformed view. I believe that when we evaluate Scripture, we find a God...
