Was Paul the Founder of Christianity?

By Brian Chilton Skeptics, such as Gerd Ludemann, charged Paul for being the actual founder of Christianity. Such ideas come from either a belief that Jesus never addressed difficult topics, or a belief that Paul was too radical in his teachings for it to have come from Jesus. Both views are inherently wrong. A closer […]

God’s Love & the Euthyphro Dilemma

By Tim Stratton Question Dear Tim,In your article The Omnibenevolence of God you pointed out that on the Islamic view, Allah is quite similar to some Calvinistic views of God. Regarding this view, you said: “God is not all-loving, and whatever Allah does is simply called “good,” even if it is really hateful.” I agree with […]

Jesús, la Biblia, el Corán y la Ley de no contradicción

Por Derrick Stokes En el Corán, el Evangelio, o Injil, se considera que es de Dios y es incorruptible. La Biblia dice que la Escritura es inspirada por Dios. Sin embargo, contrastan lo que dicen sobre Jesús. Llega la Ley de la no contradicción. La Ley de la no contradicción, o la ley del medio excluido, […]

Skeptics Can’t Have It Both Ways

By Brent Hardaway Former L.A. County District Attorney and agnostic Vince Bugliosi believes that the problem of evil is fatal to believing in Christianity. “I’m an agnostic only on the issue of whether there is a God, a supernatural being who created the universe.

Does The Minimal Facts Approach Dishonor God’s Word?

By Evan Minton The Minimal Facts Approach is an approach to establishing the truth of Jesus’ resurrection using two criteria; (1) they must be facts that have a lot of evidence in their favor, and (2) these facts must be universally or nearly universally agreed upon by scholars and historians who study the subject, even […]

A Quick Case For Jesus’ Resurrection

By Evan Minton I’ve always struggled with brevity some of my apologetic presentations. The trick is to keep it a decent length while simultaneously not skimming on important facts. A handful of my blog posts are kind of long due to my struggle, but fortunately, the vast majority of them are at a length you […]

Brian Cox, Souls, & the Large Hadron Collider

By Tim Reed There are so many great scientists out there. The things they get to discover and explain to the rest of us lay people are always very cool. Every so often, however, a well-known scientist will get a bit of publicity over a controversial comment they make. When theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking’s book, […]

Why Is The Image of God So Important?

By Luke Nix Introduction Those who follow this blog are aware that I not only defend “mere” Christianity, but I also defend specifics in the Christian worldview. As I have written before, I believe that if a Christian is defending an incorrect detail of their worldview to a skeptic, that skeptic can easily use that […]
