During debates with online atheists, one thing I notice is that the focus always turns to the nature of God’s character. What should be our focus when we evangelize to the non-believer?
In part two of our look at the claims and arguments made by the anti-holiday crowd, we’ll see if partaking in festivities with the Easter Bunny and eggs mean we are worshipping pagan deities.
Is Easter a pagan holiday? Is it inspired by deities such as Ishtar and Ostara/Eostre?
Proponents of materialism argue that religion and science do not mix. They claim that evolution refutes the Bible and thus undermines Christianity. Are they correct for thinking so?
Does Christ see us as a resurrected body or a corpse on a cross?
Does the use of apologetics and scholarship contradict the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture? Are critics justified in using it to avoid arguments?
How should we approach a world that grows increasingly corrupt every day?
Was John the Baptist Elijah, or not? Let’s take a look at this supposed Bible contradiction.
Does Paul command celibacy in 1 Corinthians 7? How should believers today read this passage?
Here’s another supposed Bible contradiction well refuted by The Domain For Truth.
For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Jesus forewarn the apostles of His death and resurrection?

Does Matthew 28:16-17 provide evidence that some doubted the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ?
Will God allow you to live a free and immoral life right until the last minute? A couple of critics have conjured up a rather fishy scenario, but can it really happen?
After a short break over the holidays, it feels good to be back in the apologist’s seat. Getting here wasn’t easy and I made plenty of the mistakes along the way. As the new year begins I’d like to offer a few handy tips for those interested in entering apologetics.
If humans are responsible for intervening in and preventing evil, does that mean God is equally so? Does divine non-intervention imply that God is either malevolent, impotent, or non-existent?
As we continue our look at this pressing objection I’ll examine how another popular variant of the creation account stands with what I proposed in the first instalment. We’ll also examine a couple of objections.
