Did Paul really change his tactics after Athens and begin to take a dim view of apologetics?

By Erik Manning Some Christians have argued that apologetics is a waste of time. We aren’t supposed to be arguing with unbelievers; we’re just called to preach the simple gospel. If we’re faithful to do that, the Holy Spirit will supernaturally come to our aid — either in supernatural conviction, or performing signs and wonders […]

¿Por qué no soy Fideísta? Parte III

Por Xavier González Parte I: Definición e historia del Fideísmo. Parte II: La historia de cristianos con una fe razonable. Promotores de la Fe Razonable Como vimos anteriormente los primeros cristianos no fueron fideísta, y eso va en total contradicción con los fideístas y ciertos ateos que aseguran que la fe es ciega e irracional, […]

Reactions to John Crist’s Moral Failings Demonstrate Our Culture’s Confusion about Christianity

By Natasha Crain News broke yesterday that popular Christian comedian and YouTuber John Crist has come forth with an admission of ongoing “sexual sin and addiction struggles” after multiple women exposed years of his sexually immoral behavior. Honestly, my heart sank when I saw this. I love Crist’s videos. We watch them with our kids. […]

LGBT activist calls for “hardball” “fight” to empty the church pews of Christians

By Wintery Knight Previously, I blogged about how transgender activists shut down a discussion of transgender issues on a university campus in Canada. You might think that suppressing debate and disagreement is something that only happens north of the border. But an LGBT activist with 50,000 Twitter followers is being re-tweeted by prominent people on […]

¿Por qué no soy Fideísta? Parte II

Por Xavier González Parte I: Definición e historia del Fideísmo. Fe Razonable, ¿Histórica? Este apartado no es un comercial para el ministerio del popular filósofo americano William Craig. Lo que se pretende es indagar sobre la historia de la iglesia primitiva, esto quiere decir, ¿los primeros cristianos siempre han sido irracionales y anti-intelectuales?, ¿ellos abrazaban […]

A Review of Nancy Pearcey’s Saving Leonardo: A Call to Resist the Secular Assault on Mind, Morals, and Meaning

By Terrell Clemmons Nancy Pearcey knows the captivating power of secular ideas because she used to hold them herself. As a teenager, she rejected the religion of her childhood and embraced a host of “isms,” from moral relativism to scientific determinism to New Age spiritualism. But she persisted in her quest for truth, only to […]

Book Review: Time for Truth: Living Free in A World of Lies, Hype, and Spin

By Luke Nix Introduction “Time for Truth: Living Free In A World of Lies, Hype, and Spin” by Os Guinness has been on my reading list for several years now. It is a relatively short book, so I popped it in my bag to read during downtime on a trip to see family. By the […]

¿Por qué no soy Fideísta? Parte I

Por Xavier González No les ha pasado que cuando están debatiendo con un ateo e intentas dar sus mejores argumentos, un hermano en Cristo o un desconocido que se meten en la discusión y comienza a dar sus argumentos. Pero cuando te das cuenta es pura tontería lo que proponen, dicen cosas como “La filosofía […]

You Might Be a Deist

By Brian Chilton Atlanta native Jeff Foxworthy made a name for himself as a stand-up comedian doing a routine called “You might be a redneck.” Some of these classic one-liners include, “If you have a set of salad bowls and they all say Cool Whip on the side, you might be a redneck … If […]

How to Work through Doubt and Uncertainty

By Matthew Slama In the guide to Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement from JCGM, it defines uncertainty as meaning doubt. It specifically defines uncertainty of measurement as meaning doubt about the validity of the result of a measurement. I recently presented at a technical conference on methods of computing measurement uncertainty and was thinking about […]

Racism, Racial Reconciliation & The Gospel

By Carter Keller In recent years, America has once again become susceptible to racial prejudice on a cultural scale. It is difficult, however, to determine how widespread racism is in the nation. Especially since those currently in the spotlight, politicians, media, cultural influencers, etc., are constantly making charges of racism at every turn. However, it […]

Molinismo, identidad y mundos posibles

Por Randy Everist ¿Es el molinismo verdaderamente compatible con la idea de personas en otros mundos posibles? ¿Realmente puede ser posible que haya una verdad contrafáctica sobre mí tal como “Si hubiera nacido en el siglo 18, ¿me habría puesto del lado de los colonos americanos contra los británicos”? Así que, aquí, depende mucho la […]

No, it’s not wrong to argue for God’s existence.

By Erik Manning There are dozens of arguments for the existence of God. To rattle off just a few: there’s the moral argument, ontological, religious experience, miracles, consciousness, reason, desire, and the families of cosmological arguments and design arguments. Some Christians say that while these arguments are good for building up the faithful, they’re useless […]

Yes, We Do Need to Put God in A Box

By Bob Perry “You can’t put God in a box.” It’s a popular saying within the Christian community. And it seems reasonable to say. After all, God can do anything He wants to do. Who would question that? I submit that every thinking Christian should question that … because it’s not true. God’s character does […]

Ambassador at Work – Faith, Vocation, and Apologetics

By Mikel Del Rosario How do people see you at work? I’ve been thinking about the relationship of your vocational work to spiritual conversations, especially as I reflect on collaborative events I’ve participated in over years, like the National Faith and Work Association Meeting. And here’s the thing: Our apologetic arguments aren’t heard in a vacuum. They’re wrapped […]
