In the Gospel of John Jesus tells His disciples that they will go on to perform works even greater than His. Is Jesus telling His followers that they will perform miracles that will surpass His own?
Critics of the Christian faith have noted that, in a number of passages, the Bible encourages blind faith and anti-intellectualism. Are the critics interpreting the Bible rightfully or have they merely jumped the gun?
It’s an oft-repeated myth among a handful of fundamentalists. Was Satan the composer and orchestrator of music and worship in heaven?
In Mark 10:18, Jesus tells a young man that there is no one good but God the Father. Does this imply that Jesus did not think of Himself as divine?
Do modern translations of the Bible change verses so dramatically that they end up with a meaning that is in direct opposition to the King James Version?
Are modern translations of the Bible trying to erase the existence of God from the Old Testament?
In part four of my look into the Bible translation debate, I examine a couple of places where modern translations have changed the word(s) of a verse or passage. Do they change the meaning or are they offering some much-needed clarity? We’ll begin by looking at a troubling verse in Isaiah.
What does Paul mean when he speaks of God distributing a measure of faith to those in the body of Christ? Is faith a thing that can be measured and bottled up?
Does Isaiah tell us that God is the one who creates evil?
One of the most beloved Scriptures in the Bible is Philippians 4:13 wherein Paul encourages His readers that all things are possible through Christ who strengthens him. But are we reading the verse the way Paul intended it to be read?
Did Jesus descend into Hell to defeat death? It’s a widely held belief, however, there might not be as much Biblical evidence to support it than we at first thought.
A number of skeptics have claimed that there is evidence to suggest that Jesus really wasn’t divine, such as His cry of abandonment on the cross. Did Jesus cry out in despair or was there something more?
Does the use of apologetics and scholarship contradict the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture? Are critics justified in using it to avoid arguments?
Does Paul command celibacy in 1 Corinthians 7? How should believers today read this passage?
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.
