This is the start of a new series that will look into the debate of the various translations of the Bible that have been formulated over the centuries. Where did we get our English translations and is there really only one right translation or can we trust all of our major translations?
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.
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?
A couple of critics have given us a few instructions on how to live but are they consistent or have they made a hilarious blunder?
How does one fall in love with God? What if you don’t feel any emotional bond to Him? Does that mean you aren’t in love with Him or you aren’t a Christian?
Does the Bible err when it calls a whale a fish or are the critics merely holding a double standard?
During Jesus’s final few hours on the cross we find Him handing the care of His mother, Mary, to John, the beloved disciple. But didn’t Jesus have brothers? Did He forget about them or was there another reason for His decision?
Does Paul tell us to do away with the genealogies in Matthew, Luke, and elsewhere?
As people who believe in a God who is both sovereign and loving do we show a lack of faith if we mourn for the suffering or passing of a loved one?
The atheist debate notes have asked us to conjure up the evilest God possible. What do I think of their findings?
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.
One of the leading doctrines of atonement is that Jesus, whilst on the cross, took the wrath of God deserved for us upon Himself. But is this view supported by the context or are we assuming too much?
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?
