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?
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.
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?
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:

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?
