Among internet skeptics, there goes a claim that religion is simply a product invented to avoid the reality of death. Can this explain the origin of Christianity?
More often than not I’ve seen a recurring narrative among the deconverted regarding a severe lack of critical examination. Should we strive to avoid testing our faith, or would doing so make it all the more secure?
Proof of God’s existence is something we’ve all wrestled with at least once. Shouldn’t God appear before us and give us concrete proof? Is an appearance really the best way to achieve confidence?
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.
In the last few years, more and more Christian artists have been upholding the virtue of honesty in their craft. While this in itself can hardly be labelled as a fault, I fear we may have lost the reason for embracing the virtue in the first place.
If we stand and proudly attribute every good thing to the will of God, why do we not attribute the bad also? Is there an inconsistency?
If I were to ask what the worst stumbling block for the Christian faith today is, you may be inclined to point to the modern skeptic. But what is the skeptic challenging, exactly? Maybe the biggest threat to our faith is ourselves?

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.
What is forgiveness and what does it mean in the life of a Christian? It’s one of the most vital parts of Christian love, yet far too many of us abandon it or see it as something it’s not.
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.
