One of the most beloved Scriptures in the Bible is Philippians 4:13 wherein Paul encourages His readers that all things are possible through Christ who strengthens him. But are we reading the verse the way Paul intended it to be read?
Did Jesus descend into Hell to defeat death? It’s a widely held belief, however, there might not be as much Biblical evidence to support it than we at first thought.
A number of skeptics have claimed that there is evidence to suggest that Jesus really wasn’t divine, such as His cry of abandonment on the cross. Did Jesus cry out in despair or was there something more?
Proponents of materialism argue that religion and science do not mix. They claim that evolution refutes the Bible and thus undermines Christianity. Are they correct for thinking so?
Does the use of apologetics and scholarship contradict the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture? Are critics justified in using it to avoid arguments?
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.
