Here’s a compilation of comments from Seahawks and Broncos who are Christians (or at least believers in God). Thought some of you might find this inspiring. (The major media only seems to carry such comments when it’s impossible not to– when they are made live.)

It’s going to happen again this year. You’re going to get together with a bunch of people who would rather talk about anything but Jesus. What can you do to reach them? Face it. You’re probably not going to get them to accept Jesus by the end of dinner. A direct frontal assault with facts […]
During a radio debate I had with an atheist recently, I pointed out that the universe had a beginning and thus needs a cause. He responded by claiming that since there was no space or time prior to the creation event we shouldn’t appeal to the law of causality to claim that the creation event […]
If Dr. Richard Dawkins is the atheist’s rock star of biology, Dr. Lawrence Krauss is the atheist’s rock star of physics (maybe only second to Stephen Hawking). An engaging speaker and winsome personality, Dr. Krauss is a theoretical physicist and professor at Arizona State University. In his book A Universe from Nothing, Krauss seeks to […]
You have three outstanding opportunities to participate in apologetics conferences over the next several weeks. Your first opportunity is to join me, Doug Groothuis and Mary Jo Sharp online this Saturday, September 7, for the “Is Christianity Actually True?” conference put on by the C.S. Lewis Society of New Zealand. There will be time for […]
If you think that push for same sex marriage and so-called “non-discrimination” laws are all about love and tolerance, you couldn’t be more wrong. A decision out of the New Mexico Supreme Court this week couldn’t be more intolerant and un-American. According to the court, a Christian photographer violated a New Mexico non-discrimination law by […]
Dr. William Lane Craig is probably the best debater for evangelical Christianity today. Rarely do Craig’s opponents address his arguments, much less provide coherent refutations. Dr. Peter Millican at least attempts to refute Craig’s arguments directly. This makes for a very spirited exchange. For those of you who may not have time to watch the […]
Ray Comfort has recently put out several provocative, informative and entertaining half hour videos. His latest called Evolution vs. God asks some top evolutionists to offer evidence for their view (included in this production is P.Z. Myers, one of the more aggressive proponents of macro-evolution). Their responses may surprise you! It is certainly true that […]
Darwin’s Doubt, the brand new New York Times bestseller by Cambridge-trained Ph.D., Stephen Meyer, is creating a major scientific controversy. Darwinists don’t like it. Meyer writes about the complex history of new life forms in an easy to understand narrative style. He takes the reader on a journey from Darwin to today while trying to […]
Most of our top universities continue their liberal leaning right through the graduation ceremony. Todd Starnes provides a complete listing of university graduation speakers from Harvard on down. This despite the fact that many of these universities were founded by Christians on Christianity. For example, Harvard, whose namesake was clergyman John Harvard, was founded to […]
At the University of Dallas last month, a polite atheist (Carter) had four major questions/objections to my “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist” presentation. Our nine minute exchange covered the following questions/objections: Your moral law argument is offensive because by it you are asserting that atheists can’t be moral. Why are you […]
The only completely innocent person in the history of humanity suffered for a greater good– the salvation of you and me. Trust in Him this resurrection day. If you never choose to do so, God will not force you into Heaven against your will. He will respect your choice and leave you alone, apart from […]
Easter season is upon us and it is almost certain that some newspapers, magazine articles, documentaries, etc…will seek to discredit the resurrection of Christ or imply that Jesus’ disciples “made up” the resurrection. How do we respond? How should we respond? Did Jesus’ disciples conspire together to say that Jesus had risen from the dead, […]
Evangelical author Skye Jethani makes the insightful observation that some so-called Christians and some atheists have quite a bit in common when it comes to control. While some atheists (like Hitchens and Dawkins) want control without God, some evangelicals want control over God. He writes: “The great irony is that while claiming submission to God, […]
You can’t put honesty in a test tube. “Science” doesn’t say anything—scientists do. Those are a couple of the illuminating conclusions we can draw from the global warming e-mail scandal. “You mean science is not objective?” No, unless the scientists are, and too often they are not. I don’t want to impugn all scientists, but […]
When I debated atheist Christopher Hitchens, one of the eight arguments I offered for God’s existence was the creation of this supremely fine-tuned universe out of nothing. I spoke of the five main lines of scientific evidence—denoted by the acronym SURGE—that point to the definite beginning of the space-time continuum. They are: The Second Law […]
If you read the threads of several of the blog entries on this site, you will see both atheists and Christians charging one another with committing “logical fallacies.” The assumption both sides are making is that there is this objective realm of reason out there that: 1) we all have access to; 2) tells us […]
The following is adapted from chapter 6 of I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist: The God-of-the-Gaps fallacy occurs when someone falsely believes that God caused the event when it really was caused by undiscovered natural phenomena. For example, people used to believe that lightning was caused directly by God. There was a gap […]
