Are miracles prevalent today? If so, how do we approach the view of cessationism? Can one logically hold to cessationism whilst acknowledging the existence of miracles?
Does Mark 3:9 contradict Acts 13:39 in regards to the unforgivable sin of blaspheming the Holy Spirit? The solution to this problem is found by defining the concept of forgiveness in the ancient world.
I’ve seen some confusion among skeptical circles concerning a strange command in Luke 14:33. Does Jesus tell us to sell all our possessions? If the disciples didn’t sell all they had, were they not taking Jesus’s words seriously?
In part one of my look at Christian rock, I examined four common arguments opposed to it and found there to be a lack of any serious prohibition. In this article, I’ll take a look at a position that seems to turn the above findings on its head. If the Bible is silent on music does that mean it prohibits it?
When it comes to beliefs, opinions, and intellectual problems revolving around those said beliefs, doubt in them can be a sign of honest truth searching. But one Scripturally informed skeptic pointed to a passage from the book of James that seemed to condemn such thinking. Let’s see what’s really going on here.
Is Christian rock Biblical? The objections have been around since Christians started playing rock music, but how do they hold up? In this article, I’ll look at some of the most common objections to CCM.
This claim of contradiction comes from a confusion on God’s dwelling place. Does God dwell in light or darkness?
In this article, I’ll take a serious look at an exegesis by an atheist skeptic in regards to a Biblical passage that’s said to support abortion. Are they right, or is the Bible pointing to something else?
To get back into the swing of things I decided to address an issue I see far too often in the atheist activist community. Is it right to mock something we don’t understand? Let’s take a look.
Here’s an excellent testimony of former atheist Marilyn Adamson’s conversion to Christianity.
Marilyn Adamson is a former atheist currently working with Campus Crusade for Christ. She directs print media campaigns aimed at college students. Adamson, however, explains how evidence and arguments, and a sequence of discussions she would have with one close friend, led her to belief in God and Christianity (1). After some time of having been in debate with her friend she began to find that it was difficult to refute some of the continuously answered prayers that her friend seemed to receive. This would open the door for Adamson to begin considering several lines of objective evidence that she would discover pointed to the existence of God (2).
At the start Adamson felt that belief in God was primarily constructed upon wishful thinking that existed in the absence of any objective evidence, “It was like learning the truth about Santa Claus. It seemed obvious that God was completely…

As I was browsing the adored site of skeptics, Evil Bible.com, I came across an interesting list of ten signs that indicate one is a fundamentalist Christian. Do these apply to you or me? If they do, what should we change?
Despite planning to part ways with writing for the rest of the year, I thought it’d be fun to quickly dismantle a popular myth among the “skeptics” (a very loose term here) that Santa Claus is no different to Jesus Christ. Really?
Here’s an excellent refutation of a supposed Biblical contradiction by fellow apologist Jim.
This is a look at another alleged Bible contradiction from Luke 9 according to the Skeptic Annotated Bible.
Today’s question: Who is for or against Jesus?
Those who are not with Jesus are against him.
He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me, scatters.” Luke 11:23
Those who are not against Jesus are for him.
for he who is not against you is for you.” Luke 9:50
I think when we examine the passage carefully this will be shown to be not a contradiction. Let’s take a closer look:

It’s my favourite time of year again. Here are my top twenty albums of 2016.
I read a rather strange comment that held Matthew 24:24 as an undeniable certainty of the truth of Calvinism. Since the elect cannot be deceived, they cannot be wrong. So what is the context here?
