As the new year rolls around many of us are beginning to wonder what 2019 has in store for us. Do you fear what’s ahead? If so, let’s step into the new year with a fresh view on the nature of faith.
As Christmas edges closer and the year begins to close its curtains we should be reminded of an important virtue that seems to have been forgotten in the church: Gratitude.
In Matthew 22:39, Jesus mentions a command that is not found in the Ten Commandments. Does this mean Jesus forgot about them or that He felt a need to add a new law altogether?
Paul instructs us in Romans to bless others rather than curse them. But is this in opposition with his instruction to the Galatians and Corinthians?
In Mark 10:18, Jesus tells a young man that there is no one good but God the Father. Does this imply that Jesus did not think of Himself as divine?
Do modern translations of the Bible change verses so dramatically that they end up with a meaning that is in direct opposition to the King James Version?
Do modern translations of the Bible remove verses that teach about the blood of Christ?
Are modern translations of the Bible trying to erase the existence of God from the Old Testament?
In part four of my look into the Bible translation debate, I examine a couple of places where modern translations have changed the word(s) of a verse or passage. Do they change the meaning or are they offering some much-needed clarity? We’ll begin by looking at a troubling verse in Isaiah.
In the second of my multi-part look into the modern Bible translation war, I’ll take a deeper dive into the process of translation itself. I’ll also introduce the three major forms of translation.
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?
Does the Bible err when it calls a whale a fish or are the critics merely holding a double standard?
Does Paul tell us to do away with the genealogies in Matthew, Luke, and elsewhere?
