For a lot of Christians, the topic of judging is an oft-avoided subject. Some believe we have no right to judge another at all and ignore moral wrongdoing. But is that what Jesus is really advocating?
Are soundbites a skeptics favourite argument? When even a professor depends on them I think that’s a good enough reason to take a hard look at them.
During these past few months, I’ve been focusing on other projects and studies I feel are more pressing than the dated movement known as New Atheism (otherwise known as Fundy Atheism), but it’s been awhile since I’ve looked at what they’re arguing so I thought it’d be fun to clean up the house a little.
Does Paul tell us of two Gods? Did one live in the Old Testament and die in the New?
Some critics believe that Paul, in verses such as Romans 12:16 and 1 Peter 3:8, is forbidding any sort of intellectual discussion or debate in favor of being of the same mind. Is that what Paul was arguing for?
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.
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.
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.
Does the jealousy of God, as recorded in Exodus 20:5, contradict Paul’s view of love in 1 Corinthians 13:4?
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.
I dive back into my look at the TULIP with the doctrine of Irresistible Grace, which corresponds to the fourth letter. As with previous examples, I find the Calvinist position lacking any Scriptural support.
I’ve seen some confusion among skeptical circles concerning a strange command in Luke 14:33. Does Jesus tell us to sell all our possessions? If the disciples didn’t sell all they had, were they not taking Jesus’s words seriously?
In part one of my look at Christian rock, I examined four common arguments opposed to it and found there to be a lack of any serious prohibition. In this article, I’ll take a look at a position that seems to turn the above findings on its head. If the Bible is silent on music does that mean it prohibits it?
When it comes to beliefs, opinions, and intellectual problems revolving around those said beliefs, doubt in them can be a sign of honest truth searching. But one Scripturally informed skeptic pointed to a passage from the book of James that seemed to condemn such thinking. Let’s see what’s really going on here.
