If you’ve been investigating the skeptical arguments against religion (or, more accurately, the Christian faith in particular) then you have likely come across the argument that, ultimately, culture is what determines religious faith. Is this an argument that stands under scrutiny or does it end up falling flat on its face?
If Christianity is true, how do we approach miracle claims in other religions? Is this an impossible hurdle to jump or have the critics gone a step too far?
In the garden of Gethsemane, when Jesus was being arrested by the Temple guards of the Sanhedrin, why did the disciples flee? Is this evidence that they didn’t believe that Jesus was divine?
With so many books, videos, and other online materials begging to be discovered and read, where is the best place to begin studying apologetics? These five books are among my personal favourites and, in my opinion, present a solid starting point for those looking to get into the ministry.
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?
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 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?
Since religious skepticism started gaining traction critics have been harsh on the Biblical texts and their scientific findings. But are they reading the texts the way the authors intended them to be read?
Are soundbites a skeptics favourite argument? When even a professor depends on them I think that’s a good enough reason to take a hard look at them.
It’s high time I jumped back into another vid by this character. This time we’ll look at his reasons why the Bible isn’t a well-written book.
Among internet skeptics, there goes a claim that religion is simply a product invented to avoid the reality of death. Can this explain the origin of Christianity?
More often than not I’ve seen a recurring narrative among the deconverted regarding a severe lack of critical examination. Should we strive to avoid testing our faith, or would doing so make it all the more secure?
