Are critics correct when they claim that the Bible was re-written and tampered with over the course of hundreds of years? How reliably has the New Testament been transmitted over time? In this article, we’ll look at some introductory facts that lay the basis for our defense.
Does 1 Corinthians 13:5 contradict Biblical judgment? Does the Bible describe two different Gods? In a way, yes, it does.
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?
Since becoming a Christian apologist I’ve had my fair share of online debates with both skeptics and fellow believers. Although many were fruitful, we were committing many logical fallacies I was then unaware of. The first of these I will look at is the Argument From Consequences.
