The Secret Battle of Ideas About God with Dr. Jeff Myers

A virus has been spreading across America. Chances are you’ve already been infected without even realizing it. The virus is made up of dangerous ideas—worldviews that don’t reflect Jesus and biblical living. According to a recent Barna study, less than one in five practicing Christians have a biblical worldview. Idea viruses—stemming from secularism, Marxism, postmodernism, […]

¿Por qué Dios no sanó a Nabeel Qureshi?

¿Cómo un hombre que enfrenta su propia muerte prematura exuda una combinación edificante de gracia, amor y verdad? Mi amigo Nabeel Qureshi, quien ha hecho esto por más de un año, murió el sábado a los 34 años. En caso de que no lo sepas, Nabeel fue un ex musulmán devoto que se convirtió en […]

God, Evil and the London Attack

If you’d had the knowledge and power to stop the terrorist attack in London, would you have done so? Of course. In fact, if you could have stopped it but didn’t, we would call you morally deficient. We would partially blame you for the attacks! What does this say about the supposedly all-loving, all-knowing, all […]

Why Andy Stanley is Right About the Foundation of Christianity and How to Defend It

Dr. Russell Moore expressed several disagreements with pastor Andy Stanley at a recent conference for Southern Baptists. Dr. Moore is the president of the Southern Baptist’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, and Andy Stanley is the Founding Pastor of the Northpoint series of churches in and around Atlanta, which collectively have over 40,000 weekly attendees.

The Wisdom Chronicles

The Wisdom Chronicle is designed to bring nuggets of wisdom from the dozens of books I read every year. I endeavor to share the best of what I have gleaned. The determination of relevance lies with you. Blessings, J. Whiddon VACATIONS/FAMILY “All of us, as parents, need to establish the primacy of the parent-child relationship […]

LGBTQ Contradictions

“People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive,” said Blaise Pascal. Indeed, attraction, not reason, is the engine of the LGBTQ movement. Otherwise it wouldn’t be riddled with contradictions such as: There are no differences between men and women. Except when […]

The Universal Problem We Don’t Want to Admit

How do we fix a world filled with murder, rape, betrayal, adultery, fraud, theft, sexual exploitation, pornography, bullying, abortion, terrorism, cheating, lying, child abuse, racism, assault, drugs, robbery, and countless other evils? There will be no solutions unless we are honest about their underlying causes. Although we don’t want to admit it, the truth is […]

Barbarians at the State

In this latest undercover video, an abortion “doctor” picks up a severed human leg with forceps.  She toys with other organs, and earlier in the video offered to “change her procedure” to deliver dead babies fully intact.  Who can defend this?   Why did 46 Senators vote to keep sending our money to these barbarians? […]

El amor no ganó, fue redefinido

“El amor ganó” es el hashtag elegido por aquellos que apoyan la última decisión de la Corte Suprema, la cual se aprobó en este organismo legislativo con una votación de 5-4. Sí no estás contento con ella, entonces eres solamente un malvado intolerante que debe callarse y apoyar la nueva legislación. Olvida el hecho que […]

On the Wrong Side of God, Evolution & Humanity

We’ve been told that people who want to maintain the man-woman definition of marriage are “on the wrong side of history.” Perhaps they are correct. Maybe “history,” which is determined largely by how people behave, will continue to move toward defining marriage as genderless in the 90 percent of governments that still maintain the natural definition. […]

Los ateos se roban los derechos dados por Dios

El ateo Richard Dawkins ha declarado: “El universo que observamos tiene precisamente las características que deberíamos esperar pues al final no hay diseño, propósito, bien o mal. Nada más que una dura y despiadada indiferencia…el ADN no sabe ni le importa. El ADN simplemente está, y nosotros bailamos al compás de su melodía. Pero Dawkins […]

After Debate, Atheist and Christian Defend Free Speech Against Gay Activists

On April 16, I, Frank Turek, debated atheist Michael Shermer at Stony Brook University on the question: “What Better Explains Morality:  God or Science?”  Following the debate, the Graduate Queer Alliance at Stony Brook wrote a letter to the editor of the school newspaper wanting an apology from the university for allowing me to speak […]

Turek-Shermer Debate: Is Morality Better Explained by God or Science?

Last week our friends at NewYorkApologetics.com hosted a debate on morality between me and Dr. Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic Magazine. You can see the raw streaming video from the debate here (a three camera professional video is forthcoming, but I’m not sure when). You’ll notice that while both Michael and I agree that there […]
