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.
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?
For a lot of Christians, the topic of judging is an oft-avoided subject. Some believe we have no right to judge another at all and ignore moral wrongdoing. But is that what Jesus is really advocating?
Does Paul tell us of two Gods? Did one live in the Old Testament and die in the New?
Following a short break from apologetics, I stumbled across a rather strange group that claims the apostle Paul was in opposition to the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. Let’s see if they have anything of substance to say.
Some critics believe that Paul, in verses such as Romans 12:16 and 1 Peter 3:8, is forbidding any sort of intellectual discussion or debate in favor of being of the same mind. Is that what Paul was arguing for?
In a rather strange charge of contradiction, are critics right when they say that Paul is telling the Galatians to juggle their burdens? I think a little context is needed.
Do the messianic prophesies in the Old Testament really point to Jesus as the messiah, or did the disciples associate Him with unrelated passages? Actually, the answer is neither.
In this claim of Biblical contradiction, there’s an alleged disagreement between Paul and James regarding one’s justification in the eyes of God. Are we justified by faith or by works?
2 Corinthians 12 verses 7-10 have been the cause of many debates throughout the history of religious scholarship. I’ve come across instances where speculation has gone beyond innocent or harmless solutions into something more apologetic in nature. Let’s take a look at this dividing passage.
A couple of months ago an interesting objection was brought to my attention. The claimant stated that Scripture supports the notion that Heaven is actually hotter than Hell. What does a closer, contextual look say?
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?
