For the next generation: May update – Christian Article

This process has been such a great opportunity to reconnect with some old friends and make some new ones. All the networking has also opened some doors of partnership with the local church. In the coming weeks, I have phone calls scheduled with 4 churches to…

The Choice Between Entertaining and Training – Christian Article

I often talk about the need to “reform” our approach to youth ministry in light of the astonishing statistics related to young people leaving the Christian faith. While I tend to focus on the direction I would prefer to take, I seldom spend much time critiquing the alternative strategies that other youth leaders embrace in an effort to keep their young congregation. Nick Peters, however, has done a nice job summing up the problem in his piece, “Entertaining Our Youth To Apostasy”. Nick asks…

Remembering Ravi Zacharias | Thinking Out Loud – Christian Article

Then I shall end my sad complaintsAnd weary sinful days,And join with the triumphant saintsThat sing my Savior’s praise.-Richard Baxter* It’s difficult to add anything to what other voices have been sharing in the past 24 hours, but it also strikes me that silence isn’t appropriate. This, the passing of Ravi Zacharias, is probably the most significant passing of a Christian statesman since the death of Billy Graham. (For a full biography, click here.) The outpouring of tributes online has…

Our confidence in God is grounded not in wishful thinking – Christian Article

  Both atheists and Christians make claims. It’s an even playing field in that sense. Both are required to give reasons for their views. We’re ready to do that, demonstrating that our confidence in God is grounded not in wishful thinking but in a body of evidence that needs to be addressed rather than dismissed as naught.—Greg Koukl (from, Street Tactics-Part 2) This is Only a Snippet of a Christian Article written by Greg West Read Full Article

Warner discusses the need for case making and the specific need for making a case for…

Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray Team Up to Look at Jesus – Christian Article

Review: Seeing Jesus from The East: A Fresh Look at History’s Most Influential Person by Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray (Zondervan, 2020) One of the challenges when multiple authors combine to cover a particular topic — especially when the individual chapters were not written collaboratively — is that that there is often nothing which unifies the book as a whole. When I started reading Seeing Jesus From the East, I resigned myself to reading it as a collection of nine…

Adam and Eve: The Historical End of Future Racism – The Science of Racism – Christian Article

Recap In the last post, I outlined four alternative histories of human history; each of which make key philosophical and theological presuppositions that are in turn used to interpret the scientific data. In part four below, I outline what—even today—is the scientific grounding that leaves open the door to racism. The Science of Racism The foundation laid in each of these four alternatives to biblical creation consistently resulted in racial animus and social-engineering that devalued the life of non-whites. To reiterative,…

Gary Habermas: Easily the strongest indication that Jesus was who he said he was – Christian Article

  Very early, I realized that if Jesus was raised from the dead in time-space history, then this would easily be the strongest indication that Jesus was who he said he was. But at that time, I knew neither the evidence for the resurrection nor any strong reasons for concluding that Jesus thought of himself as Deity. Only years later, after 18 books on this subject along with debates and dialogues with some of the brightest minds around, did I…

One of the Greatest Gifts to Give Your Kids This Easter is a Sense of Hopelessness – Christian Article

A few months ago, I experienced a moment of personal insight that deeply transformed how I think about faith. It happened while debating whether or not to go to the grocery store. It was mid-morning on a weekday. The kids were at school and I was at my computer working. I hadn’t had time for breakfast that day and my stomach started rumbling. As my thoughts turned to food, I realized I needed to go grocery shopping. I actually enjoy…

Viruses and God’s Good Designs – Christian Article

  Viruses and God’s Good Designs by Dr. Hugh Ross Among the many questions I have received on my social media pages is this one: Why would an all-powerful and all-loving God create a world in which viruses exist? As I explain at length in my book Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, it can be argued that God had multiple reasons for the laws of physics that he chose to govern the universe and Earth.1 I believe…

What Are Science’s Operating Limits? – Christian Article

  What Are Science’s Operating Limits? by Kenneth Samples Modern science has dramatically changed the world for the better. All of us have benefitted from medical and technological advances. Because of that success, some people have concluded that science can answer all of humankind’s ultimate questions. This philosophy, called scientism (science is the only or best path to discovering truth), is to be differentiated from science (the study of the natural world through observation and experiment) and is reflected by…

How Has John Frame’s Apologetic Changed Over Time? – Christian Article

John Frame writes to Steve Hays at Triablogue about how his apologetic has changed over the years. Well, it’s true that our reasons for faith tend to develop over time, and into old age. Of course, much often remains the same. I’ll share with you how my own web of belief has developed. Let me use our familiar genre of the numbered list. I still find my published argumentation pretty cogent, without insisting on every detail. I’ve always looked for…

Five Reasons Christianity Did Not Copy Mystery Religions – Christian Article

  Five Reasons Christianity Did Not Copy Mystery Religions by Dr. Doug Potter It may come as a shock to hear some who say Christianity borrows the beliefs of ancient mystery religions. Was the story of Christ, Christmas itself, just taken from the pages of pagan religions? Is the virgin birth, the deity of Christ, the resurrection and salvation from sin copied from ancient Greek and Roman cults? If so, this would seem to suggest that Christianity is a copycat…
