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?
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.
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.
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.
To get back into the swing of things I decided to address an issue I see far too often in the atheist activist community. Is it right to mock something we don’t understand? Let’s take a look.
Despite planning to part ways with writing for the rest of the year, I thought it’d be fun to quickly dismantle a popular myth among the “skeptics” (a very loose term here) that Santa Claus is no different to Jesus Christ. Really?
Does Jesus’s atonement free us of moral obligation and responsibility? The rumor has been spreading around the skeptic community for some time now so it’s high time we took a good look at it.
Fellow apologist Robert Caponi recently refuted an atheist meme regarding a verse in Leviticus that seems to equate the bat as a bird. I thought I’d add my own two cents and address another problem that follows.
Although science isn’t my field and my knowledge of such an area is limited, I wanted to share this fantastic and well-researched video by YouTuber and apologist Inspiring Philosophy. I hope this can break the attack of delusion and open the door to intelligent discussion among both believers and non-believers.
It’s time to examine Mehta’s second video containing short arguments against God’s existence. Will it be an improvement? Let’s see.
As a growing apologist, directly answering the opponents of Christianity is something we defenders are required to do. Hemant Mehta’s 22 reasons to stop believing in God has convinced many to begin questioning their religious beliefs. Although skepticism is healthy, I’ve found it can often lead to some head-scratching conclusions.
When we describe the love of God we often picture a kind of gooey sentimentality, maybe even a warm, romantic type of love. But is this an accurate depiction of Biblical love, or are we missing the mark?
Closing our series on the harmonization of the Old Testament law we take a look at a common objection by the critics. If the Bible isn’t relevant to us today, does that mean it isn’t the Word of God?
While I’m working on the second entry to the series on prayer I thought I’d take some time to write a short correction of our common misuse of Psalm 14:1.
